I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

Sucked what happen to Kootra and Dan today. People that exist for only making trouble for other people are the scum of the world.

sweetlikekiwi:

Dude… I just realized… if Koots didn’t have his headphones in and the SWAT could hear the game’s gunshots go off… it would be a very different ending… one that I’m feeling rather sick to have thought of… my god, Aleks is right, just be glad they weren’t shot…

God I don’t even want to think about it…

Aleks and Dan are shown in a news report getting interviewed. I feel so bad for them, I just hope they know we are all here supporting them. (X)

A swat team raided the creatures offices following a prank call, from some asshole, calling in a school shooting threat.

Several school were evacuated and the creatures, Dan and Kootra who were in the office at the time, were arrested.

Dan has since been released and Kootra will be soon.

This…

This shit makes me sick, hope everything gets cleared up soon

scatteredgathered:

I would include more, buuuut… 10 image limit.

Love and support from all directions! Feel better soon, Creatures (especially Jordan and Dan!)
