It’s been a frustrating and sad week for a lot of people I know. Looking at ducks always makes me feel better when I’m frustrated or sad, so this is for me and anyone else who might need it.

Quote
"Every year white people add 100 years to how long ago slavery was. I’ve heard educated white people say, ‘slavery was 400 years ago.’ No it very wasn’t. It was 140 years ago…that’s two 70-year-old ladies living and dying back to back. That’s how recently you could buy a guy."

Louis C.K. (via 30thcenturyboy)

Sylvester Magee, the (probable) last American born into slavery died in 1971.

The last living child of former American slaves, Mississippi Winn, died in 2010.

Slavery in the territory that is now the United States lasted more than 330 years. We will be 330 years removed from slavery in the year 2195.

140. A character for each year. That’s all.

Bulwer-Lytton candidate?

"I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass", she said, a steely glare fixed upon the man behind the counter. She shoved a hand in her pocket, searching, and continued speaking. "And I’m fresh out of ass." Without breaking eye contact, she coaxed a piece of Hubba Bubba from its crinkly wrapper and popped it in her mouth.

She glowered as she blew a bubble, defiantly, and its tacky sugar surface stretched perilously close to the man’s nose.

The man regretted his decision to work as an Immigration Officer in Singapore.

Wombs and wills

In my twitter feed in the last hour: successful uterus transplants for transgender women (http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4629589?ncid=edlinkusaolp00000003) and forced life support for women in comas who happen to be pregnant, regardless of their previously expressed wishes (http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/22/us/pregnant-life-support-texas/index.html).

So, when will we see the first transgender woman whose body is kept grotesquely alive against her will because it has a fetus in it? Or will we as a society manage to progress faster than medical technology, for once?

My first thing made with Paper that I’m willing to share. It’s my favorite part of Interlaken Boulevard, coming home, in the evening.

You can figure out why something went wrong by looking at how much it’s like something else that went wrong some other time.

And let’s face it, Jon, there’s no way this man could be Santa. Because the moment white folks saw a Black man with a big old bag coming down the chimney, it’d be time to grab a gun and stand your ground.

I have a Turkish Santa. :D
