this article is trying SO HARD to be supportive of the ignorant turds who think that using a racial slur as a team name is ‘honoring them’ but oh man, no amount of spin doctoring can make these people not look racist and entitled

especially this lady, who takes the whiny white person award for the day:

“This goes way beyond mocking. Poking fun is one thing, but that’s not what happened,” said Kelli O’Dell, 56… “It was disingenuous. The Native Americans accused me of things that were so wrong. I felt indanger.I didn’t consent to that. I am going to be defamed.”

apparently being called on racist horseshit is now ‘being defamed’ hahaha ok but then it gets better

O’Dell said she felt trapped. “I was told that I was ‘psychologically damaging Native American children,’ and every time we tried to say something, we got cut off,” she said.

god forbid that the actual native people get talking priority in this discussion oh no how threatening. it’s almost as threatening as a racial slur that started as a slang word for a trophy kept for murdering your racial group oh wait

O’Dell said she e-mailed Polidoro asking that her consent waiver be destroyed, but he wrote back saying: “…we can’t destroy any releases & we have consent to air everything we shot.”

Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.

help 911 I fucked up and signed a waiver giving a tv studio permission to put my racist bullshit on blast

I want to watch this so bad

i’m so excited for this omg

I cannot describe to you how much I want a copy of that call to the police

Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.

“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 

“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.

“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”

I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law.

This isn’t right. You’re supposed to be with me!

The actual definition of what some guys think when the girl says “no”.

"OMG I did this and that for YOU, you must date me!"

Hell no. If I don’t like you, I won’t date you.

This movie is  golden.

YES CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE

Megamind has the ultimate example of a “nice guy”, Hal, who liked Roxanne - and he was clear about it. He “complimented” several things to her in the beginning, which guess what - were not flattering at all, but downright creepy, so really, it was no wonder Roxanne didn’t like him.

But after he gets his superpowers, he expects her to - he expects to be rewarded for being the “good guy”, despite the fact that he hasn’t really done anything for her. When she rejects him and later finds out that she had dated Megamind for a time, he’s furious that she would date the “bad guy” when he is the “good guy”.

Yet despite Megamind being “bad” and Hal being “good”, it’s Megamind who respects what she wants - when she told him to back off, he backed off, and then later apologized, while Hal was legit going to kill her for rejecting him. So really, who is the good guy?
