Okay so I think Chris Evans was saying in an interview about how it’s always the children who discover the hero in disguise, and I just realized why: it’s because they’re short enough to see under the hat and they’re innocent and hopeful enough to still believe in heroes.
it’s because they’re short enough to see under the hat
Never forget the foundation of Law and Order.People really don’t know that America’s first police force was made to keep watch for runaway slaves and keep free ones in check. This has carried over into today and will never stop, unfortunately.
KRS One tried to tell us
The first police “organizations” were Rattle Watches. The first police officers were Runaway Slave Patrolman, which started in 1705.
Historical context is significant

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
white people are going to black neighborhoods to loot to make it seem like black people are destroying their own neighborhoods then go back to their white homes and post about how they’ll shoot any black people who loot their homes
They’re the next level white anons who state over and over that they’re black in order to try and convince black people that they shouldn’t talk about white people like that.
So the stories about white anarchists causing all the trouble are true.
white ppl savage out here
"gentle reminder that cleopatra’s beauty is rumored to have started wars in ancient history" — a post going around Tumblr
Actually Cleopatra was said to have not actually been that beautiful — men said that until she opened her mouth, she was simply average. What made her beautiful according to Plutarch was her personality and intelligence. Her sparkling wit, charming personality, talent with over half a dozen languages, and in-depth knowledge of almost everything was just so impressive that she often became beautiful in their eyes.
So while that post is nice in that it’s trying to say that women are becoming more beautiful and that if you lived in 30 B.C., you could have started wars, I like this version much better.
You may not be traditionally beautiful, but goddamn neither was Cleopatra and she seduced two of the most powerful men in the world.
