Cleveland baseball fans stand against racism by #DeChiefing their gear

In the past few months, debate surrounding the use of racial caricatures as pro sports mascots has reached a fever pitch. Just ask the Washington Redskins, who’ve endured significant backlash for both their refusal to change their name and their half-assed attempts to placate their critics.

But a few miles west, fans of the MLB’s Cleveland Indians are taking a stand. In a motion of solidarity, a small but growing number have been “de-Chiefing” their paraphernalia by removing the offensive “Chief Wahoo” mascot from caps and jerseys that bear its likeness.

I like this a LOT. I don’t know who else can make these teams change at this point other than their own fans.

msenjoli:

I dunno after talking to so many women this week (already!) who do not feel entitled to insist on their safety, who correctly assume they won’t be taken seriously if they speak up about stuff, and as a result either (1) water down their complaint so much that it doesn’t sound like a complaint…

YES. Before we get rid of the words, we need to make sure all women and girls are comfortable with being the actions.

U.N.I.T.Y 
The things we let men get away with
Subvert the patriarchy

Just when I was afraid I was the only one who remembers this movie, tumblr to the rescue. That’s Lili Taylor in stripes. I remember renting this like 3 times on VHS from the video store on my block in San Francisco. I don’t think it ever got released on DVD. Queen Latifah’s U.N.I.T.Y was one of the first tracks I downloaded stole with Napster; it runs over the credits.
The movie was basically improv - the four lead women have writing credit along with the director. I really want it to be available so you can all watch it. It’s not the best movie ever, but it’s weirdly compelling and I cried on every viewing.

“What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary…

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters

they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
