The Body Shapes of the World’s Best Athletes Compared Side By Side

Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.

I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!

Just a reminder - if you’re drawing a team superhero book and more than one of your characters has the same build YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG

That is actually very cool.

I don’t think Bill O’Reilly understands the concept of white privilege. 

I also don’t think Bill O’Reilly is aware of the PERVASIVE exploitation and disenfranchisement of asians that touches many, if not most, major eras of the USA’s existence. That’s excluding the stereotypes, fetishization, and erasure that continues to happen today. Because he’s not even there yet. 

financial privilege is the only privilege straight white cis christian men like him acknowledge cuz they never have to think about the other things.

Remembering African-American Victims Injured By Police Brutality In America
Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. (Pennsylvania): Tased By Pittsburgh Police While Praying & Giving Last Respects For His Deceased Stepson In A Hospital, Survived The Taser Attack, Has Now Sued Pittsburgh In A Civil Rights Lawsuit Over The Tasing
Reverend Earl Baldwin Jr. of Pittsburgh filed a civil rights lawsuit against police after they allegedly restrained and tased him in a hospital emergency room. Baldwin claims he was trying to pay his last respects to his dead stepson when the incident occurred.
According to Baldwin, he was trying to pray for 23-year-old Mileek Grissom in the UPMC Mercy Hospital, when officers pulled him away and tased him. “I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK,” Baldwin explained to WPXI. “I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK.”
Video from a hospital camera shows a distraught Baldwin handcuffed and surrounded by several officers trying to pull him away from his son, and one of the officers shooting him in the back with a taser. Officers say Baldwin was interfering while doctors tried to revive Grissom, but a family attorney says Grissom was dead and not being treated at the time.

The police department has not issued a statement about the lawsuit, but UPMC refutes Baldwin’s claim. “Clearly this was a stressful situation and a tragic loss for this family,” it said. “However, the allegations about the circumstances are inaccurate.”

Tori Baldwin, Grissom’s mother, was denied entry into the hospital at the time.

Oh boy guys it’s a nice new template! This one was designed by miss-hudders and I think it looks great :)

It was 3rd in place at the box office it’s opening weekend and managed to make $17,005,218 in the United States and and made $25,377,218 in other countries. It’s almost made it’s budget back.
So yeah, those people who told him that a Hispanic story wasn’t universal were wrong as fuck.

I watched this purely because it was about Mexican culture. I would not have seen this purely for the plot line. I needed the visual and the significant role of the Mexican culture to the plot line. I needed something like this when I was a going to school where there weren’t that many Mexicans or other Latin@s to keep me from forgetting my culture. This movie should have come out fourteen years ago. 
It’s out now and that’s all that matters. Plus Guillermo Del Toro is amazing. And the cast was mostly PoC from what I can tell. So. It was worth the 12ish dollars that I spent to see it the night it premiered.

Regarding cinco de mayo

skeleton-nudes:

Hello! I go by the name of Juno and I am a Mexican Woman. Why do I say this?

Because here comes cinco de mayo, a day that Americans love to pluck as an excuse to drink, dress up in “funny clothes”— basically bastardize my culture.

I’m torn between wanting to be overly polite or ruthless. I’ll go…
