Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

Keven Stonewall Is On His Way To Finding A Cure For Cancer

19 year old Stonewallhopes to one day create a vaccine that will eradicate colon cancer. The Chicago South Side youth has already started working on a potential cancer cure at a Rush University laboratory.

The youth’s love of science began back in fifth grade, when he became fascinated by the appearance of cells under a microscope. Stonewall’s love of the sciences grew to such extremes that one Christmas he was gifted four microscopes by his parents who are educators. It was during his freshman year at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences that Stonewall began focusing on the need for the eradication of colon cancer.  He watched not only a dear friend’s uncle succumb to the disease but witnessed first hand how the illness negatively impacted his school mate, telling DNAInfo Chicago, “Cancer has taken over a whole bunch of lives, and I felt like I needed to step up and do something about it.”

Stonewall was a senior in high school when he jumped on the opportunity to do an internship at the university, which is the academic arm of the Rush Medical Center.  He worked in the lab with a professor who taught immunology/microbiology and general surgery. Stonewall began to consume literature about how a chemotherapeutic agent could possibly destroy certain cancer cells while still promoting a healthy immune response.

The young researcher, who has already won numerous awards for his research and was a finalist for theIntel International Science and Engineer Fairlast year, then began testing his potential vaccine on mice. He injected a concentrated amount of the cancer-treating drugMitoxantronein younger and older mice. Stonewall then injected the rodents with aggressive colon cancer cells.

Stonewall waited three days to check out the effects of his experiment: The younger mice benefitted from the vaccine as their cancer was in fact eradicated and they had developed immunity.  The older mice were still ridden with the cancerous tumors.

“[He] should be heralded for helping to develop more effective colon cancer treatments that will impact the elderly, the population that is most susceptible to colon cancer.  He has all the tools. He will go far.”

Stonewall, who is now a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, is still working on the vaccine that he prays will one day be tested on humans.  The young man is keeping hope alive that his work will in fact be the answer to a dreaded disease that has taken the lives of many, so until then, he tells the New York Daily News, “If you don’t plan to succeed, you’re planning to fail.”

char-redtoast replied to your post “so it’s probably safe to say that I follow most of the actresses of…”

Fuuuuuuck this causes a bad taste in my mouth people really don’t fucking get it?!

yes i KNOW like why r these ppl on their instagram telling them that theyre not the perfect goddesses they are, thinking they’re showing support by saying shitty things like “dascha you look beautiful BUT that dress is too small for you and your fat is flowing out of the dress” 

and laverne gets to portray this amazing transgender woman AS a transgender woman on the show so why are these people watching & on her insta if they are going to be transphobic

like i dont know why these people are watching orange is the new black if they’re not comfortable with seeing queer women of color and women of different shapes and sizes??? SMH

so it’s probably safe to say that I follow most of the actresses of orange is the new black on Instagram

& the Emmy pictures are up on and it’s kind of sad how people are leaving hate comments on laverne cox’s insta using transphobic slurs & dissing dascha polanco for being “too fat” for the dress she wore like what

And of course the comments on Laura Prepon’s (don’t get me wrong, I think she’s great) Instagram are 99.99% complimenting her and telling her she’s perfect

hell, 1. dont even fucking watch oitnb because u r missing the point and 2. I guess unless you’re white, straight, cis, and conventionally beautiful, your talent just goes out the door

WHAT IF

forging-faces:

Mal didn’t die right away? What if she were taken to the hospital and Dom was forced to pull the plug weeks after she jumped?

What if Eames snuck into her room, stood by her bedside, gently squeezed her hand, and begged her not to go whenever Dom left to be at home with the children?

What if Eames were there when Dom pulled the plug but had to be escorted out by security because Eames tried to physically stop it and was yelling and threatening Dom?
