how come

violent white men who shoot up movie theaters and schools get to be called by name in the news but Michael Brown is nine times out of ten “an unarmed black teen who was shot”

i mean it’s good to mention that he was “unarmed” and super relevant that he’s “black” but like, why can’t they just be like “Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen who was shot…” 

everybody’s human, we all bleed red…or some shit like that right?


Strange Fruit//as sung by Nina Simone (Originally sung by Billie Holliday, poem written by Abel Meeropol) 

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

found it

i think i shared this a little over a year ago (july 2013)


but apparently it will never not be relevant

everything is  so sad sad sad


I am in love with running in fall.
