Oh, Jefferson…

ladyhistory:

"A friend of Thomas Jefferson’s, who owned a fine, strong horse, challenged him to a race. Jefferson owned a fat old mare but, surprisingly, accepted the bet. The two agreed on a date for the match. Race day had almost arrived when someone finally noticed that Jefferson had set the date of the race for February 30."

Hamas has fired more than 2160 rockets at Israel since July 8. That’s more than 1 rocket every 10 minutes for 15 days

#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

I think this sums up perfectly the “why is the new Captain America black” thing.

That is the most heartbreaking thing I’ve seen. Look at the disappointment on his little face. FFS it’s 2014, children should not have to be asking that.

Accurate and painful.

Also, this is from a MARVEL show. So they see it, they’re addressing it. I don’t know if the Falcon-as-Cap thing is the way to go as we all see it as temporary. I think they need to bring some of the established POC characters to the fore, and create new and interesting ones too.

Okay, but that’s not what he’s saying though? Like your points are all interesting and great but I remember watching this episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. The dad ask his son if he wants one of the toys for his birthday and the kid says something like “no, that’s okay.” Marvel wasn’t “addressing” anything because that scene didn’t happen.
