endless list of favorite characters → katniss everdeen, the hunger games
The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.
But that ain’t Jennifer Lawrence? Looks more like Keisha Castle-Hughes.
It’s Q’orianka Kilcher, and I used her as a dreamcast because I always read Katniss as PoC. Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress, but she’s not at all an accurate representation of the Katniss in my head.
#sometimes i think the casting call was for a white girl because a woman of color raising up an army #and becoming the symbol of the revolution would be too close to social commentary they considered too radical #because we can rage against the patriarchy only if it’s in the future #and we can rage against racism only if it’s in the past #but we can’t rage against both #because that is too close to threatening the status quo of the present (via dealanexmachina)
'Zitkala-Ša, a Yankton Sioux Native American woman who made her mark as a champion of Native American rights and as an accomplished author and musician. She and her husband, Raymond Bonnin, founded the National Council of American Indians in 1926 to advocate for full citizenship rights for Native Americans.’
The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.
Speaking of leaked nudes…We live in a world that doesn’t respect women’s privacy…or women in general for that matter. I know there’s a site called pink meth that not only post women’s nudes, but also their private information, from their Facebook accounts to their home address, without the women’s consent, of course. But you can only access that site through Tor, an underground web browser, so that the perpetrators can post women’s info anonymously and avoid any legal repercussions. It’s funny, because Tor boasted that their mission is to protect privacy on the web, yet they allow such a dangerous, sexist, objectifying, privacy-invading website to exist? Who’s privacy is honored and valued here and who’s don’t worth jack shit? Cuz fuck women’s privacy right? Some horny, women’s privacy-invading, revenge porn loving mutherfucker’s “privacy” is more important? And don’t give me the “well, she’s the one taking nudes in the first place.” Oh, so that means her body and private information should automatically accessible to anyone? Her consent shouldn’t be respected? Her SAFETY not honored? Just because she takes nudes, doesn’t mean she’s giving up control of who she allows to see it. Doesn’t mean anyone is entitled to her private info! It shows how women’s consent, body, and privacy don’t worth shit in this patriarchal af world, and how no matter what, women can’t own themselves. Ugh. Fuck this shit man. #respectjensprivacy #respectwomensprivacy #respectwomen #bitchesareentitledtoprivacy #consent #respectit #respectconsent #middlefingertothemutherfuckers
White people in America are a trip… they exterminate the Native American and then try to dress just like them. What kind of necrophilia is that?

I wanted to approach you to tell you how your breakdown of the global prison-industrial-complex and school-to-prison pipeline got me thinking about how can I incorporate my social work practice and tools into the goal of prison abolition…but I got nervous, so I ended up just (intellectual) fangirling and asked you for a quick picture instead… #angeladavis #ucla #sjp #studentsforjustice in #Palestine #freepalestine #prisonindustrialcomplex #prisontoschoolpipeline #socialwerking #af
Not like I like sharing my business with the world, but some words of wisdom from a good friend. I post shit like this to keep myself accountable. And someone always find these posts helpful to their own situation somehow. So here it is. Be kind to yourself. Don’t be afraid to fall in love with yourself and just recognizing your unique abilities in general. And maybe just stop trying to run and just chill with the flow of the chaos and confusion of young adulthood. And your profs don’t matter unless they give you life advice that involves telling you to have an obsession like a 13 year old fan girl. The time is now. If you wait to be happy, you’ll never be happy… #qotd #tgif
