- Don’t make yourself collateral damage here, for your own sake.
- Mr. Childs. The day you leaked that sex tape to the press and forced me to shield my children from every cable news station that played it in a 24 hour rotation, that was the day I became collateral damage.

to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.
And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.
At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived.
And not a moment too soon. A little levity in these serious times is what we needed. Thank you, gentlemen.

IN PAIN READING THIS. REALLY GLAD I HAVE A DICK
I think about this post a lot. Is this seriously what most girls go through every single month? This is really concerning.
thank you gentleman for acknowledging our pain. We sincerely appreciate it.
The writer has to be indifferent to the realities of filming. The well-behaved film writer, the writer who’s writing for his or her director, is of no use … If you’re already surrendering to the pragmatism of making a film, then the film necessarily will be extremely easy to shoot and, consequently, undemanding.

note to self
People aren’t talkin about the news, they’re talking about what they think the news is. There is no news channel saying “This is what happened, draw your own conclusions.” We have made this country so bereft of critical thinking, that now we have a problem where we have to teach them to think for themselves.
We have no unified authority, or problem solvers. We have congressman discussing environmentalism, when they don’t understand half the problems our earth is going through. We go to congress instead of going to people who have worked their whole LIFE trying to solve these problems. When it comes to racism, we’re asking a panel of white dudes, when it comes to sexism and woman’s rights we ask a panel of white priests on what they think. IT’S INSANITY! We ask people who are not in the arena they should be speaking in/for.
AND THAT’S WHY WE DON’T trust the media, it’s because they’re not in the arena of black experience, and they don’t care about the black experience, UNTIL something bad happens and they have the tools to paint us as destructive, ugly and evil!
