why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists

because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists

the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession

OOOOPS

Someone I follow reblogged this along time ago and now it’s been sitting in my drafts for a few months.
If oppressed people could not step on each other to elevate themselves, and instead be in solidarity with each other, that’d be great.
Yeah, it’s his mom who said it, and censoring stories is bad.  But he seems totally unaware how gross and racist what she said was; and being a queer ally has nothing to do with racism and does not give you a free pass to be prejudice. 
All I want out of this is for people to stop reblogging that post with the belief it’s good and considerate of others.  Cause it’s not.

Here’s another snap of the fashionable Shaimaa in Casablanca, Morocco.
She did a great job making an accessory, her belt, a main ingredient of the outfit. It’s definitely the most applicable color to compliment the overall tones of the look.
This area was in an old part of Casablanca which provided the lovely stoned road work and colorful architecture that one expects of morocco.

The crisis in Gaza is so serious, it can be seen from space

International Space Station astronaut Alexander Gerst has posted his “saddest photo yet.” From all the way up in the thermosphere, ISS personnel orbiting 200 miles over the Middle East can see bombs and missiles exploding in Gaza and Israel as the two sides go to war.

Detailed explanation of the photo | Follow micdotcom

Anonymous asked: Hey, I am mixed (black and white) and I have a friend who is also mixed. I am considered to be more white passing and she isn't and when we were growing up her mother would say things to me and my mum like "you're so lucky your child looks somewhat like you I don't know why my girl is so...dark" obviously now I'm older I see this is wrong and mean and my friend has very low self esteem and has even admitted feeling resentful towards me. How can I explain to her that she's fine as she is? Thanks

You tell her that is sucks that you’re only starting to see how anti-blackness was rampant in her growing up and apologize for not standing up because you didn’t know.  Tell her how much she means to you and all the things you love about her, and tell her that she should never feel less because of her skin.  Tell her you make sure you’ll stop people in their tracks for saying shit because she is awesome and doesn’t deserve bullshit like that.

you know you’re mixed when… #45

youknowyouremixedwhen:

you really need a group of PoC friends who understand racism so want to join a private online chat for WoC, but it requires showing pictures of yourself as `proof’ you’re a WoC, so you’re too scared to even try for fear of being torn apart and told you’re `not enough’ or you’re `just a white girl’ who is trying to invade a space you don’t belong in…

The shades of blue of the Willdenow’s Spikemoss
Selaginella willdenowii (Selaginellales - Selaginellaceae) is a species of spikemoss. Although sometimes these plants are commonly called Peacock ferns, they are not true ferns but fern-like plants or fern-allies.
It is a scrambling terrestrial plant with blue-green fronds that exhibit amazing iridescence when young, appearing to change color from different shades of blue, green and purple, depending on the light and angle, and turn pink, red and purple when exposed over time to bright sunlight. The blue leaves gradually turn to green with age or exposure to more direct light.
Transmission electron microscopy studies confirm the presence of a layered lamellar structure of the upper cuticle of iridescent leaves as being responsible for the blue iridescence. A recent research on this topic do not support the idea that iridescence in plants acts to enhance light capture of photosynthetically important wavelengths, because the reflectance of light in the range 600–700 nm is very similar for both iridescent and non-iridescent leaves. 
However, it has been hypothesized some other adaptive advantages that leaf iridescence may offer, such as a visual defense against herbivores, a mechanism to protect shade-adapted plants against sun-flecks and other potentially damaging sudden high light levels, and a polarization filter enhancing orientation of photosynthetic apparatus within the cell. 
Native to Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, this species  has now been naturalized in many countries after been introduced as a garden ornamental.
