I was totally on board with that video of the black kids from Ferguson talking about racism, until the advertisement at the end.
“Buy our T-shirt to show that you’re not racist! $5 from your each purchase will go to anti-racist charities, but we won’t say which ones!”

BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.
I’m kind of surprised my Tumblr post about my ringtone has gotten so many likes and reblogs. I had no idea people were so nostalgic for the first Lupin III TV series.
Reblog if you have made a friend online that you would love to hang with, but they live far away.
I’ve made quite a few in my time… though I’m not sure if they feel the same way.

Probably the simplest yet most real statement I’ve heard in quite some time.

Only tickets bought so far is Funk Fest. I wanted to attend the second day of Funk Fest too, but I didn’t have the cash at the time. Sucks, cause I’ll be missing The Roots, Ice Cube, and War… and LL Cool J, but I don’t care bout him.
