— Nicki Minaj, Elle, April 2013 (via suvetar)
In February, I posted two pieces in Bed-Stuy on Tompkins and Halsey. These two pieces got the most attention of any pieces I’ve put up so far. Within a few days, someone had written his response to the work directly onto the posters. From there, a woman wrote a response to him. And it went on and, on with different hand-written comments creating this kind of interesting discussion. The pieces remained up until a week or so ago, when the phallic image was drawn. That’s when I decided to try to take them down.
The “Stop Telling Women to Smile” piece remained in tact enough for me to include it in the exhibition. I thought it was important to present in the show, so that people could view these written reactions.

I keep having to remind myself that it’s the lionesses that do the hunting and killing and get their faces soaked in blood I mean is there a more badass animal

He was injured in the blast and was running away like everyone else. But a bystander thought that was suspicious and tackled him. Police grilled him and ransacked his apartment. The new York post calls him a suspect immediately. Drudgereport links it under a screaming headline. World media pick it up. Everyone thinks he’s behind it. But. It’s. Just. Not. True.
Suu Kyi was held as a political prisoner for like 20 years for criticizing her government
I’m going to throw up
I voted for gaga constantly whenever this popped up on my dash….in my opinion Gaga is more influential. Sure what ASSK did is amazing, but it doesn’t influence nearly as many people as gaga. She has helped millions accept themselves. It’s no “small group”. It’s huge.
SHE BROUGHT DEMOCRACY TO A NATION OF 60 MILLON PEOPLE
i hate everyone
i want to throw someone through a window
Please be trolling.
Yeah so Lady Gaga is actually winning by 2% now
Remember, you can vote more than once.
Down to just a 1% lead now. VOTE SUU KYI
A comprehensive list of reasons why Lady Gaga sucks and should not receive your vote:
Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and English doesn’t surpass it by much. Most acts of terrorism in the United States have historically been committed by English-speaking white men. The KKK and other white supremacist/far-right groups have committed multiple 9/11s alone, especially over the last century, but we usually aren’t overly suspicious of English-speaking white men without any known ties to the aforementioned groups. In fact, since the early 90s, most terrorist attacks in the United States came from mostly white, right-wing groups and they’ve been steadily increasing, especially around 2006. Individuals of a Middle Eastern heritage and/or Muslims haven’t even come close. And yet, agencies like Homeland Security and the FBI have disassembled task forces and departments that focused on those groups, even refusing to track and analyze the terrorist attacks committed. Why could that be?

Jamie Foxx attended the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night to accept the 2013 Generation Award. He did so while wearing a shirt that had the phrase “kNOw Justice” above photos of Trayvon Martin and the Newtown kids.

Just in case any dudebros are unclear on what this means: it means that your buddy who totally just had some bitch trying to ruin his life by accusing him of rape…almost certainly actually did rape her.
Just keep that in mind.
Yeah man, imagine that, bitches don’t be lying.
Can we put this into context? It means that 99.4% of rape allegations are true.
|November 15, 2012 | Filed under:||BizTechNews | Posted by: bowatkin If you don’t believe that racism in the job market is real, then please read this article by Yolanda Spivey. Spivey, who was seeking work in the insurance industry, found that she wasn’t getting any job offers. But as an experiment, she changed her name to Bianca White, to see if employers would respond differently. You’ll be shocked and amazed by her phenomenal story.|
|Yolanda Spivey Writes:|
|First, I created an email account and resume for Bianca. I kept the same employment history and educational background on her resume that was listed on my own. But I removed my home phone number, kept my listed cell phone number, and changed my cell phone greeting to say, “You have reached Bianca White. Please leave a message.” Then I created an online Monster.com account, listed Bianca as a White woman on the diversity questionnaire, and activated the account.|
|That very same day, I received a phone call. The next day, my phone line and Bianca’s email address, were packed with potential employers calling for an interview. I was stunned. More shocking was that some employers, mostly Caucasian-sounding women, were calling Bianca more than once, desperate to get an interview with her. All along, my real Monster.com account was open and active; but, despite having the same background as Bianca, I received no phone calls.|
I have the absolute best followers and I’m heading into my meeting now with SO much more confidence so THANK YOU to everyone who watched/reblogged.
Plan on thanking responders/rebloggers personally cause y’all are amazing.
