This is what the cast of a Stonewall movie should look like, not what’s being cast.

These are just a few of the beautiful, incredible, unbelievably brave people who made our movement possible. Pay respect to the people who were involved in the Stonewall Riots by boycotting this planned whitewashed film about cis gay men and drag queens because it’s false and disrespectful to the trans women of color and the other extremely important marginalized groups that sparked the movement we have and benefit from today. Don’t allow this movie to further perpetuate the whitewashing of history and lies about who really was fighting in the Stonewall Riots.

TRANS WOMEN OF COLOR SUCH AS MARSHA P. JOHNSON AND SYLVIA RIVERA PLAYED A CRUCIAL ROLE IN THE STONEWALL RIOT AND TO DENY THAT IS TO DENY HISTORY.

LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?

because white people have made sure that everything is about race

as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.

Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)

Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.

And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers

Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.

There are literally 100s of photos of this girl on her twitter & Facebook. Holiday photos, school photos, family photos - but they chose this one because of the necklace she has on. You can argue that she made irresponsible dating choices, but that’s still someone’s innocent child whose image you’re nationally degrading. These people make me sick.

see how they do us? ask us why we’re mad.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

SISKO WHY DO YOU HAVE A DESK DRAWER FULL OF EMERGENCY BASEBALL CAPS PERFECTLY SIZED TO EVERYONE’S HEAD

i imagine sisko had been planning a baseball game well in advance of this episode, probably as soon as he knew he had nine or so capable players on the station. i would even hazard to guess that as early as season 3 he was already building his dream team and replicating the fitted hats. past that it was just a waiting game til nog n jake had aged to their prime baseball playing years. soloks arrival on ds9 just as the DT (dream team) had begun to burgeon was entirely coincidental 

jackie

what I love most about this 100% accurate post is that it is proven true by this screencap, because this is not the baseball episode, this is Starship Down, s4, the one in which Kira is like ‘I DON’T KNOW WE NEVER HANG OUT OUTSIDE OF WORK IS IT BECAUSE IT FREAKS YOU OUT THAT I SECRETLY WORSHIP YOU OR WHAT’ and Sisko is like, ‘I know what would solve this problem: a baseball game,’ because that’s how he solves literally all problems. Anyway at that point he clearly had already begun to plan, sooooo…
