Lyrics:

In New York the shooting of another unarmed black man
Raises further questions about NYPD tactics
On Friday an undercover policeman
Shot and killed Patrick Doorsman

Murder is murder
Why’re they confused?
Another man dead
I read it in the news

Who gave them
The fucking right
To run around like
They own the night?

Oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!

Wrong fucking time
Wrong fucking place
There is no fucking way
This is not about race

Who’s gonna call 9 1 1
When they can’t tell a wallet
From a motherfucking gun?

Oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!

Bang! Bang! Daddy, I want you dead
Bang! Bang! Daddy, get out of my head
Bang! Bang! Daddy, I want you dead
Bring me Giuliani’s head

Oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!
Oh, oh, bang! Bang!

Since the shootings, police have changed their account
Of what happened that night
The shooting has angered many community members
Especially after four NYPD officers were acquitted last month
In the shooting of unarmed African immigrant Amadou Diallo

here’s what I want leaked: the names of the fucking SCUM OF THE EARTH who leak nude photos of women, the names of the human trash that share the photos after they’re leaked, and the names of the assholes who think it’s okay to rob women of their privacy for their own titillation. then I want those names DRAGGED till they’ve experienced just as much pain and humiliation as these women have to go through for doing what they want with their bodies.

Shoutout to all the artists on Tumblr who work on something for weeks and only get 4 notes

Shoutout to all the artists on Youtube who do amazing speedpaints and, if they’re lucky, will get 500 views

Shoutout to all underappreciated artists who do amazing work and receive no recognition

I want to know why there are Christmas stores which are open year-round but Halloween stores suddenly appear two months before October 31st and then vanish a week afterward like a fart in the wind.

15 questions white people will never have to ask themselves

Many white people may never truly understand why incidents like the Michael Brown shooting infuriate blacks and other people of color — even when it’s clear that race plays a large, looming role in how the situation snowballed to the 18-year-old’s death.

This is in part because white people can move through daily life without constantly thinking about how their race will be perceived. Part of having white privilege is the freedom from worrying about racism, a freedom their black counterparts have never known. But it gives black people a unique yet challenging perspective by which they navigate the world. 

African-American scholar W.E.B. DuBois called this “double consciousness,” Follow micdotcom

If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”

***TRIGGER/CONTENT WARNING! SLURS, RAPE, STALKING*** “Women are the niggers of gender,” the email said. “If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse.”

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

Anonymous inquired:
why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
