Why the Racist History of the Charter School Movement Is Never Discussed

revolutionary-afrolatino:

for those who still somehow defend charter schools, here’s another brilliant reason why they’re not only no good but also oppressive. the same racist shit that happened then is happening now.

socialjusticekoolaid:

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

My mom and I went shopping for some new clothes in honor of the upcoming New Year, and naturally I insisted we shop vintage. I found some truly stellar dresses, a gorgeous skirt, and two new pairs of shoes (ridiculously cute and so comfy I can dance in them? YES YES YES AND YES). My poor impulse control meant I *had* to show off some of the purchases during family Shabbat dinner, and during this mini photoshoot I discovered something truly spectacular. 

You guys.

This vintage dress.

Has.

Gigantic.

Fucking.

POCKETS.

andromedalogic asked
do you actually think leslie knope is abusive? i'm pretty sensitive to abuse in female friendships on tv and i didn't see it that way. some of the ways leslie treated ann made me uncomfortable, and some of the ways ann treated leslie did too, but overall i felt there wasn't a power imbalance there. (and that sometimes it was the writers imposing these things on leslie's character for misguided comic effect.)

I think the parenthetical is really the crux to my answer

If we take Parks & Rec non-literally and see all moments where Leslie treats Ann incorrectly and Ann treats Leslie incorrectly as comic impositions by the writers, they’re great friends. There were enough times where they made the same joke that I personally feel uncomfortable saying Leslie isn’t abusive, though.

It’s not so much that there’s a power imbalance* as that Leslie:

1) Builds a mythology of unconditional friendship 5ever, making it harder for Ann to break it off if she ever wanted to

2) Refuses to listen to Ann saying “no”, which is played for laughs but in a literal reading would be scary

3) Frequently brings up the unconditional friendship 5ever when she’s being invalidating

*Neither woman is isolated, and neither woman is in a position of direct power that she wields against the other.

So yeah, that’s why I’m uncomfortable with Leslie as a model for female relationships, but I really can’t say either way on if she is abusive. I appreciate that you bring up Ann’s occasional shittiness too because that lends credence to the “imposition by the writers” analysis.

In case this doesn’t show up in your tag: andromedalogic

j-groffy:

treat other ladies like leslie knope treats ann perkins 

Wait, Leslie constantly steamrolls Ann’s objections and enlists her in things without her consent. The extreme care & love is great, but like…

If your friend refuses to listen to your discomfort, you deserve a better friend. You deserve to be heard.
