Interestingly, when cash welfare had first been created back in the 1930s (and when access had been restricted to white women), allowing mothers to stay home and raise kids, and not have to work in the labor force, had been articulated as the very purpose of the program. Only when women of color began to gain access to the same benefits did the nation suddenly decide that welfare was bad for you, made you lazy, and needed to be replaced with compulsory employment.

this is especially funny because if you actually look up the term “race films” you’d know that race films were actually a genre of film made in the early 1900s by black filmmakers with black actors for entirely black audiences. they literally weren’t made for white people lmao. this is of course until black actors were more “integrated” into white film to become more mainstream.

Sebastian’s reaction when the moderator kept calling Bucky a villain [x]

I’m entertained by his slow building annoyance at the villain title. It started out that he would try to suppress his instant reaction of disgust. Now he just openly makes horrible faces.

Bucky Barnes being called a villain is Sebastian Stan’s villain origin.

The unsung heroes.

That was one of the most horrifying, painful, beautiful parts of the movie.  So many of them weren’t prepared, so many were administrators who had no clue that the STRIKE teams had turned, let alone that a killing machine like the Winter Soldier was on the loose.  

So many of them died.

And yet none of them hesitated.  Despite the propaganda Pierce had unleashed, despite their orders, despite everything, they still responded.  Their sacrifice, their heroism - they gave the last full measure of devotion, and I can’t imagine that Steve wouldn’t attend the memorial service, even if he had to use a wheelchair or a cane because his own wounds hadn’t finished healing.

"Captain’s orders" indeed.

without these people, there IS no Captain America.

That’s exactly what a monday feels like

I’M GONNA DO IT I’M GONNA DO THE THING WITH THE PEOPLE
*gets to door*
wait never mind i need to alphabetize my sock drawer

this is what chronic illness looks like. :( this is what I go through every single day. Only I’m at half empty before I even get out of bed… :\

exactly what chronic illness looks like. mental or physical. this is a great illustration, which perhaps people with more empathy than “you lazy bum” can relate to.

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

THIS IS THE SHIT

WATCH THE VIDEO AND BUY A SHIRT!

I’m going to keep reblogging this…Because this means Republican WOMEN in the senate voted AGAINST equal pay.

the last time this bill came up, Maine’s senator Susan Collins voted it down..she gave a speech at my school and talked at lengths about how “WOMEN CAN BE ANYTHING” so naturally i asked her why she made this very same voting choice and basically her excuse was it would be a struggle for the government because then companies would have to take the time to send in information distinguishing women from the disabled…and obviously that’s too high a price to pay because according to the government being a woman has now become a handicap.

Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.
