For over a thousand generations, the Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic — before the dark times. Before the Empire.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.
they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting
After months of speculation and rumors on just when we will see footage from Jurassic World, an insider on the Boxoffice forums has reported it will premier this November on Interstellar. If November sounds familiar to you, it is because extras involved in shooting scenes with the Mosasaur reported that they were told a trailer would likely hit November as well. That had led to some speculation that the trailer would perhaps premiere on blockbuster The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (November 21st), or Universals own Dumb and Dumber To (November 14th). However, Interstellar makes perfect sense- the film is being produced by Legendary Pictures (who are involved with Jurassic World), and its November 7th opening date means the trailer could also be on the two aforementioned films.
It’s important to note that this only a rumor, and although the insider in question has a good track record on information, things are always changing in the movie industry. That said, all early buzz points to us seeing something from Jurassic World this November, and a film such as Chris Nolan’s Interstellar seems like the perfect place to show it first. Special thanks to Mulder on Jurassic Park Legacy for pointing out this news first. As always, stay tuned for updates and the latest on Jurassic World!
CNN has obtained a video, taken shortly after Michael Brown was shot, that shows a contractor who had been working near the shooting site describing the incident in a manner that matches other eyewitness testimony—raising his arms and shouting “man, he was going like this,” as if to suggest that Brown had adopted a posture of surrender before he died.
Two contractors are shown in the video, and both have spoken to CNN; one also spoke previously to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and one to Fox affiliate KTVI. The individual who is shouting and raising his arms in in the video told CNN that “the cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting.” The other said that he saw officer Darren Wilson “chasing” Brown, that Wilson fired a shot at Brown while Brown’s back was turned, and that Brown raised his hands before he died, though it’s not clear at what point the witness saw Brown’s hands raised. (For what it’s worth, it seems like the worker who spoke to KTVI is the one wearing a pink shirt in the video and that the worker who spoke to the Post-Dispatch is wearing a green shirt.)
The CNN account notes that the workers are not from Ferguson and did not know the Brown family—a detail that could increase their perceived objectivity vis a vis witnesses from Brown’s neighborhood.
33 Days since Mike Brown’s murder, and his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. How much more evidence is needed to make a fucking arrest?! #farfromover #staywoke #ArrestDarrenWilson
it’s so weird that learning about racism is totally a completely optional side quest for white people
