Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

Anonymous said: How can you support neopets if it has so much problematic material? Like their continued use of the word Gypsy (which is a racial slur btw) for characters and costumes? Or the stereotype of people from island nations wearing coconut bras?

I’m not pleased with it, I’ll admit that freely. I’ve been known to spend a lot of time bitching about it privately with friends.

Some of it is older, so I tend to be a little more passive (though that doesn’t make it okay) with things like Jhuidah’s Coconut Bra. The use of ‘Gypsy’ is definitely more problematic and recent/recurring, and I’m not fond of the Royal Lutari design.

Neopets is definitely far from a perfect company, and it should absolutely be called out on problematic material. But it also has been a place where I’ve been for years, where I’ve met friends that lasted me through high school, college, grad school… I went to Disneyland a month ago with some of them.

So I guess my main thought is that the good on Neopets outweighs the problematic, though it doesn’t render the problematic moot. It’s like any form of media we engage in - there are good things and bad things and it has to fall to the individual to decide how they feel about it. I think unlike some forms of media (those run by Stephen Moffat, Ryan Murphy, Jeff Davis), Neopets under JumpStart will be more likely to at least look at complaints and criticisms. The question will be how they deal with them.

Student Suspended for Speaking Native American Language

When Miranda was teaching a classmate to say “posoh” and “ketapanen” on January 19, her teacher scolded her. Native News Network reported her saying “You are not to speak like that! How do I know you’re not saying something bad? How would you like it if I spoke in Polish and you didn’t understand?”
The words Miranda was chastised for translate to “hello” and “I love you” in Menominee.


And THIS shows you why most Native American languages are either extinct or endangered.

When asked whether he has gotten any offers to venture into Hollywood during his 20-year career, Jung Woo Sung replied, “Going abroad should not be an actor’s ultimate goal.”

He added, “Of course, filming foreign projects is up to the individual, and they will have a reason for doing so.” Then he frankly stated, “Hollywood is a white-dominated industry, so unfortunately the main character has to be white. But I want to be a main character.”

He further explained, “I’m not sure why Asian actors must make it their goal to enter Hollywood, if it means that they will end up playing villains and supporting characters.”
