just a reminder: we’re two periods away from 2014.

you couldn’t just say months you had to measure time with your menstrual cycle

fUN FACT. the earliest form of a calender that’s ever been found was to keep track of an ancient person’s menstrual cycle. women invented time. there is a reason that months are about the same length as the time between periods. that is all.

Ah yes because us men don’t know this, we are mindless animals who must always be reminded so

Well with all the times you fuck up, we cant really take anymore chances.

I remember a guy comedian saying that he doesn’t even understand why women go on dates because statistically men are more dangerousness than bears for women.

WASHINGTON — A multi-million dollar lawsuit was filed in federal court in Missouri on Thursday, seeking compensation for “excessive force” by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, in the days after the shooting of Michael Brown.

According to the suit, the excessive force included false arrest, assault and battery; led to intentional infliction of emotional distress; was the result of negligent supervision and discipline; and resulted in a violation of the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.

The lawsuit, filed by three out-of-state lawyers — including Malik Shabazz from Black Lawyers for Justice, who participated in the protests in Missouri — seeks multi-million dollar judgments against the City of Ferguson and St. Louis County, as well as one specific ands several unknown officers on behalf of Tracey White, Dewayne A. Matthews Jr., Kerry White, Damon Coleman, and Theophilus Green.

In addition to the city and county, the chief of both city and county police are named as defendants, as is Justin Cosma, a police officer with the Ferguson Police Department.

sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else

Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

smh

This is back in the Twin Cities where I went to law school.

The MPLS/STP police force have been KNOWN for their brutality. I’m so glad that someone caught this bullshit. They get away with way too much.

TRIGGER WARNING, THOUGH. It will piss you the fuck off.

People think that Minneapolis doesn’t have any issues because we don’t have any black people in Minnesota. WRONG. They are worse up there, actually.

This chokes me up.

British Model Jourdan Dunn Makes History on Forbes Richest Models List.
Whilst 34-year-old German-Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen ranks highest on the list with earnings amassing to $47 million, before taxes and fees, over the past 12 months, 24-year-old Dunn isn’t doing too badly for herself with earnings of $4 million at this stage of her career, and being in an industry heavily dominated by white models - something Dunn has been vocal about.
Another reason to celebrate Dunn’s feature on this of 21 models, who made $142 million between in the past year, is that Dunn is the first black British model to ever enter the Forbes richest models list.
Before you bring up Naomi Campbell’s name, though she made a considerable amount of money during her peak days as both a runway and editorial model in the 90s and early 2000s, Forbes invented this list in 2006 after Naomi’s hey-day in the fashion industry. The list is put together based on a model’s earnings from fashion-related jobs and endorsements over the past 12 months. American model Joan Smalls was the only other black model to make the cut. Liu Wen and Adriana Lima*, who came in at number 3, make up the non-white models on the list.
However, despite the glitz and glamour that surrounds the life of a model, most models don’t get paid for runway gigs or editorial features and, according to Forbes, opportunities with top haute couture brands may not always pay as much as we think they do.
