jennylewren replied to your photo: There’s such a thing as Chocolate Lucky Charms. I…I hate to burst your bubble. But I’ve had it. And I am unimpressed.
I’m willing to risk it!
I was unimpressed as well. To me, they didn’t taste noticeably different from regular Lucky Charms. I much prefer Chocolate Marshmallow Mateys. Some may frown on bargain-bag cereal, but that one in particular is so good. And unique? Most of the Malt-O-Meal cereals are obviously based on a specific brand-name cereal, but I don’t think CMMs are. Correct me if I’m wrong, Tumblr.
When I tell you white folks are trying to take over ALL our shit,
Including the language that they call us ‘ghetto’ and ‘ignorant’ for using?
And they sellin it on teeshirts like a white woman would come up with that phrasing.
AAVE is the same language they penalize us for using, denying us opportunities and resources, calling us ignorant,
But they put it on a shirt with a BLONDE bitch and SELL IT?
I feel kicked in the chest.
WHITE PPL YOU NEED TO STOP
This is why don’t no body fucking like you white people
Fucking really??? I’m just so ashamed about my race. God DAMN. :(
I just realized that the Venus Razor makes a pretty decent g-spot sex toy. Imagine the vibrating ones? Hmm, guess I’ll have to buy it.
Wait, is it intended to be a sex toy? The bottom left black and white image just looks so phallic. *shudders* The idea of masturbating with a razor is completely terrifying to me.
The anatomy of a Chihuahua.
except for lucy who is 25% cuddles 25% licks 50% tremble

Nah, my chihuahua is 25% hate, 25% gross stuff, and 50% OMG SO EXCITED.
Not all chihuahuas are shaky.
A MacBook Pro and a Teddy Bear and Finn the Human is my only friend. I guess we’ll make it through together
An orange futon, a backpack and the doctor. Despite the orange futon, I think I’ll make it through.
My primary weapon is… crap I have too much crap to my left all around the same distance from me.
But my secondary weapon is my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0… Okay.
And my friend…? Misaka Mikoto from Index/Railgun. I GOT RAILGUN. I’M FINE.
I have a sword, salt, and Sam and dean Winchester. I think I’m pretty set.
Shit. I’ve got my mean as hell cat, a towel, and Gordon Ramsey. How am I doing?Hahah, husbands iphone, 3DS and…Doctor Who, inspite of the sad weapons, Doctor Who is a fine pal to have.
Apparently I make toilet paper bombs by lightning toilet paper rolls on fire and my last friend is Gordon Ramsay I think I’m set.
i’ve got a bottle of lube and a pillow. My last friend is Neil Caffrey. We’ll make this work.
A mechanical pencil, an empty coffee cup, and… The Aquabats.
Wellp, nice knowing y’all.
no | rather not | I dunno | I guess | sure | yes | FUCK yes | oh god you don’t even know
My dog freaks out if people touch him when he’s not with me, so rather than having the vet take him back for his shots, he asked me to hold him. As he was getting the needle ready, he asked “are you ok with this?” I was like “wait, what? of course, he needs his vaccines.” then I remembered some people are scared of needles. I asked the vet if that was why he asked, and he confirmed “yeah, sometimes people totally flip out.”
I don’t have the luxury of being afraid of needles. I’ve had weeks in which I got 14 different injections. I average 2 a week now, but that will be jumping back up as soon as I get on testosterone.
I tell my kitten she has jelly bean toes and I wanna nibble them.
Now I can.
Dreams really do come true!
The backdrop to Kanye West’s “Saturday Night Live” performance was a lie. Projected behind the rapper, as he let loose with two rage-filled and politically fueled tracks, were the words “Not For Sale.”
Yeezy wouldn’t have graced the set if he wasn’t hawking a soon-to-be released LP. But his incendiary performance was peppered with damning truths: Angry and pointed condemnations of institutional racism and the prison industrial complex, which disproportionately jails young men of color to fill state budget holes and enrich private corporations.
In the final verse of “New Slaves,” a track released Friday with the coordinated projection of a video on 66 buildings worldwide, and the second performance in his “SNL” set, West raps:
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryn’a lock niggas up
They tryn’a make new slaves
See that’s that private owned prison
Get your piece today
Condensed and reduced to flow in rhyming verse, West’s lyrics smack of the conspiratorial. But he is correct: The War on Drugs, abetted by and fueling the private prison industry, currently serves to incarcerate hundreds of thousands of black men in the United States, who provide dirt-cheap labor. Various industries — from call centers to weapons manufacturers to retail companies — rely on prison labor. Private prisons pay inmate workers as little as 25 cents an hour; prisoners who refuse to work are regularly held in isolation. These are the de facto “new slaves” of the prison industrial complex. The CCA (the Corrections Corp of America) is one of two major private prison corporations (along with the GEO Group) that share in a market worth $70 billion.
And West’s implication that the CCA and the DEA are “tryn’a” lock up black people, leaving racist intentionality aside, is supported by troubling statistics. While the entire U.S. population is only 13.6 percent black, 40 percent of its vast prison population (over 2.5 million) is black. In 2010, black males were incarcerated at the rate of 4,347 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents of the same race and gender, compared to 678 inmates per 100,000 for white males. The disparities are striking, especially when the majority of those held in U.S. prisons are guilty of minor drug offenses. This brings us to Kanye’s reference to the DEA.
As attorney and author John W. Whitehead pointed out in a HuffPo comment piece last year, states specifically opted to make sentencing laws for minor drug offenses harsh in order to fill private prisons — prisons which promised to fill gaping holes in state budgets:
[W]ith an eye toward increasing its bottom line, CCA has floated a proposal to prison officials in 48 states offering to buy and manage public prisons at a substantial cost savings to the states. In exchange, and here’s the kicker, the prisons would have to contain at least 1,000 beds and states would have agree to maintain a 90 percent occupancy rate in the privately run prisons for at least 20 years. The problem with this scenario, as Roger Werholtz, former Kansas secretary of corrections, recognizes is that while states may be tempted by the quick infusion of cash, they “would be obligated to maintain these (occupancy) rates and subtle pressure would be applied to make sentencing laws more severe with a clear intent to drive up the population.” Unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened. Among the laws aimed at increasing the prison population and growing the profit margins of special interest corporations like CCA are three-strike laws (mandating sentences of 25 years to life for multiple felony convictions) and “truth-in-sentencing” legislation (mandating that those sentenced to prison serve most or all of their time).
As has been well-documented, young black men are disproportionately targeted by police for marijuana arrests. In New York City, for example, nearly 90 percent of the people arrested for marijuana possession are blacks and Latinos. The logic is simple: If states rely on minor drug arrests to fill privately run prisons, and young black men are targeted in minor drug arrests, then states rely on young black men to fill private prisons.
Or, as Yeezy put it: “See that’s that private owned prison/Get your piece today.”
Racism and Capitalism will absolutely ruin everything that was ever good in the world.
