A Black man holding a wallet is more likely to be shot by the police than a White man holding a gun.

In 2002, a study by Joshua Correll and colleagues, called The Police Officer’s Dilemma, revealed a phenomenon also known as shooter-bias 

The study found that people hesitated longer to shoot an armed white target (and they were more likely to accidentally not shoot). Participants were quicker and more accurate with black armed targets but there were more “false alarms” (shooting them when they were unarmed). These effects were present even though participants did not hold any explicit discriminatory views and wanted to treat all targets fairly

You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s total bullshit. If you’re going to shoot an unarmed black person and then claim to not have discriminatory views …What a crock of shit.

Yeah, that’s the most contradictory statement… like, let’s be honest here.

When you are a woman and you use a confessional narrative, people tend to think there is not some more complex structure of thinking or philosophy behind that narrative. I needed to bring some of that background thinking more to the fore, otherwise, it failed…

… I am passionate about ideas. They’re not just the stuff of spectatorship and entertainment to me. They’re a life-blood, and that’s what makes the intellectual process so radically different from the academic process.

Part of the challenge for insurgent intellectuals, particularly those of us who are artists in this society, is to pull back from academe, actually, and academic settings, precisely to break this notion that has become so popular in the culture, that the two experiences are one.

Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate

I’m honestly conflicted about this.

On one hand, these people do seem to mean well, and I’m sure this means a LOT to some people in the community.

On the other hand, it feels a lot like straight people trying to be the center of attention AT PRIDE. Pride isn’t about straight people, even if they are reformed vitriolic homophobes and ~straight allies~ there to apologize for other straight people. 

It’d be a hell of a lot more useful if instead of coming into safe LGBTQIAP+ spaces to apologize (and get attention and praise for how ~lovely~ they are) they went into places that are still incredibly homophobic (like homophobic churches or to events with homophobic politicians) and petitioned to make THOSE spaces more LGBTQIAP+ friendly.
