- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
As per the last one, link here. its not MISSING, it’s not able to be tracked. Just like cash purchases that you didn’t get a receipt for. I think that most if not all dollars should be tracked, being that theyre your and my dollars (assuming you pay american taxes…which everyone is if you’re buying products from america).
From the ISO’s kick-off forum “Why You Should Join the Socialists & Change the World”.
"Starbucks baristas make about $9/hr. If they make 3 drinks for $5 each, they pay for their hour of their labor & supplies. At 5 drinks they pay for themselves & a coworker. At 10 the whole store for an hour. At peak hours they make 2-300 drinks & see none of the profits. Every drink after 3 is theft."
yall don’t understand the ideology of making a profit, paying for the cost of simply having the building and the lights on…
like.. this is childish.
EDIT: i understand this is an exaggeration, and probably a call to why we need a higher minimum wage (which i support). the problem isn’t that we’re productive workers. The problem is that once the wage increases, prices will too, so that there will be a net zero change for those who got their increases, but the rest of the people won’t see much of a change. The problem is corporations caring about money more than people.
A comic about the different types of attraction one might feel. I saw these descriptions floating around on tumblr and felt compelled to add visuals. They are from a website about asexuality. Although, I think people who are not asexual feel these regularly too. There’s all kinds of attractions for all kinds of people. Enjoy.
This. This was what i felt the other day.
Its strange to realize someone has a beautifully crafted face, great structure, great skin and everything and not be attracted to them at all.
