I guess there’s no way to tell if the most racist police force in the most racist country in the goddam world is racist when they do obviously racist stuff. Huh.
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.❞

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.
the baby boomer culture: how an entire generation literally will not shut up about young people doing things they enjoy
The Divorce Culture: how an entire generation couldn’t keep it together, and forgot how to not project their insecurities onto children.
The “I Am No Longer Young” Culture: How your generation will be doing this to the generations behind you in a mere 15 years.
The show BoJack Horseman is dubbed in several languages.
In the English version, Mr. Peanutbutter is voiced by Paul F. Tompkins. And in the Spanish version, he is voiced by Mexican actor Eduardo Ramon, whose IMDB photo shows him to be some kind of Mexican version of PFT.
And I find this to be incredibly charming and amusing.
