Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she was interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.
"It seems to me that on one page I recognized a portion of an old diary of mine which mysteriously disappeared shortly after my marriage, and, also, scraps of letters which, though considerably edited, sound to me vaguely familiar. In fact, Mr. Fitzgerald (I believe that is how he spells his name) seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home."
#f. scott fitzgerald
—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.
knife his corpse
NEVER READ ANY OF HIS BOOKS AGAIN. AND READ HERS INSTEAD. CONSIGN HIM TO OBLIVION.

Little white teen stabs up his high school in PA
CNN: What is troubling this young man? His family isn’t dysfunctional.
Little black teen stabs one student in an altercation where he felt threatened
CNN: we have reason to suspect that this student was a delinquent in school, from a trouble home and involved in gang activity as was supported by raiding his home, arresting his parents and going through his social media accounts.

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."
"Help your brother whether he is an oppressor or an oppressed. It was said: how am I to help him if he is the oppressor? The Prophet replied, you stop him and prevent him from oppressing others. That is how you help him."
Never let them define our culture with their propaganda.
BUT EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE NOT AND WERE NOT BLACK.
You’re thinking of Nubians.
Have you been to Egypt? Have you seen the native Egyptians. Not the Arab settlers I’m taking indigenous Egyptians. Plus wtf are you talking about saying the Ancient Egyptians weren’t black? Like that’s just wilful ignorance. Even if they weren’t black as you claim the certainly weren’t even close to white so explain to me why white Europeans are playing these characters?
Regardless of what Egyptians were (which is Black / Brown), this story is about their gods. Set and Horus’ story in particular revolves around the fact that Set was fair-skinned (not White) and had reddish hair which was looked down upon in their culture, while Horus and his brothers were darker-skinned and thus more accepted in their society. The entire story that is being portrayed, unless it strays absolutely completely from any real mythology, is completely pointless if that skin difference is not there because that is why Set was so hated, and why he became the god of destruction, war, and foreigners. His issues with Horus were based primarily on the fact that (a) Horus abused him because he looked different, and (b) because Horus encouraged the other gods to belittle and ridicule him.
All of the hieroglyphs and painted depictions of these gods clearly show their skin. Horus is clearly brown-skinned, Set is light but not ‘White’ per se. It’s not that hard to figure these things out. Egypt is still a place, it’s still in Africa, it’s always been in Africa, it’s inhabitants have always been African, period. Y’all just want to take credit for something you didn’t do.
In fact, the idea that Egyptians were White came from the scientific racism of the 18th and 19th centuries. However, it’s already been disproven that they were White. There is literally no support for that claim outside of the “assumption” that they had “White” features. Conveniently, colonists blew the noses off of their statues to destroy the evidence of their wider noses. They still referred to themselves as the Black people (kmt / kemet) of the Black land, and there have been melanin tests and the like which have proven that they were darker than what they are commonly depicted as today.
Why don’t you go grab a book?
do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals
Hey folks, putting real in quotes doesn’t make it any less ableist. Besides that, it’s just ridiculous to call any book form REAL. No one is coming to take away your paper books and independent stores are crushed by big chains and Amazon, not by ebooks. (Though more so, I have to say, by people who talk about how much they love their local bookstore but only buy coffee there and then complain because they might actually have to park more than 20 feet away from the door and thus don’t actually support the store at all.)
These jokes work equally well (and don’t alienate people) if you write paper books instead of real books. Also then you don’t sound like someone who values paper over, you know, the writing itself.
