Let’s make this happen, dolls! Laverne is currently 2nd place, behind Benedict Cumberbatch; and Jared Leto is a very close third place (really?!)BOOST!
Vote for Laverne

I can’t seem to get the voting things to load on my computer. :(

When this world is blown up, it will be blown up by educated people, people with PhD’s. Educated people are the most dangerous people on earth.

Because, ladies and gentlemen, who produces these bombs? Some guy on the block? Who produces these germs and diseases? Some crack dealer? These people can wipe out more life in a fell swoop than these crack dealers and whoever you talk about on these streets could do in a century. And yet we look at them as being the criminals, as the greatest threat. It’s the other way around. And I said, we have to be turned backwards, you see.

People educated so they can create any kind of weapon, any kind of thing as long as you give them enough money and a profession-ship. They’ll create something to destroy themselves, they’re children, their great-grandchildren, and the whole of the earth, as long as you get them a house on the corner and get them a little position somewhere. What kind of education system is that?

Anyone who believes 300 years of oppression can be undone in a 50 year span does not have a basic comprehension of how this subjugation can become internalized and normalized, thus continuing to be a serous social issue

And now what do we have? We have the right to vote while we are homeless. We have the right to vote while we are jobless. We have the right to vote while our children are miseducated; this right that we were told would bring us a cornucopia of blessings and freedoms. We have the right to ride the front of the buses, we’re the only ones riding on it. Yes. We have the right to sit at the lunch counter with white folks and we ain’t got the money to buy a sandwich. We got all of these abstract rights but nothing real. This is the situation we face. We inhabit neighborhoods where the industries have flown away and left us of jobs and opportunities. Why? Because we have not paid attention to the realities of our lives. And now we are overrun with violence, because violence is the result of social disorganization. Violence is the result of a nation not being able to feed and clothe it’s people legitimately. - Dr. Amos N. Wilson (via disciplesofmalcolm)

Michaela DePrince
When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”
For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”
When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”
The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”
Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”

CONGRATS!
Rihanna has been cast to star in a new 3D animated DreamWorks film titled “Home,” which is based on Adam Rex’s children’s book “The True Meaning of Smekday,” Rihanna will be providing the voice of the film’s leading character Tip. Jennifer Lopez, Jim Parsons and Steve Martin will also be starring in the new project, which takes place during a post apocalyptic alien invasion. This project is a big deal because  its not often that black girls (or boys) are at the center of 3D computer-animated feature films set in the future, produced by Hollywood movie studios.”  says Tambay A. Obenson of Shadow&Acts
Tim Johnson is directing the film which is described as a post-apocalyptic-alien-invasion-buddy-comedy, with a synopsis that reads:
When Earth is taken over by the overly-confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated, while the Boov get busy efficiently reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, (Rihanna) manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov by the name of Oh (Jim Parsons). Equally stubborn and set in their ways, these two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime. Good thing they have a flying car.
