this isn’t a surprise at all

This story is a favorite of men’s rights activists who hold it up as evidence that women have always had it better. SURPRISE, it’s not based in reality.

A 1970 Civil Aeromedical Institute study of three plane crashes involving emergency evacuations found that the most prominent factor influencing survival was gender. Men were by far the most likely to get out alive.

Note that gender was a bigger factor in influencing survival than proximity to emergency exits was. I.e. it looks like the men pushed everyone else out of the way.

We all remember what happened with that white dude at the Dark Knight shooting don’t we? Bolted to the door while leaving his two children & their mother.

what about that ship that ran aground in the Mediterranean a while back? the captain was one of the first people off the boat. and his ass stayed off.  remember those tapes of him calling the coast guard/navy to find out what happened?

“My biggest problem is that there is simply no creativity in movies with black casts at all. White people are 12 year old wizards, teens with crushes on vampires and werewolves, fighting blue people, talking fish and toys, and yet the best we get is a movie about the genteel south? Someone please make a movie about two black folks falling in love at a rock concert or a feature film about Storm from X-Men discovering her power, or something, ANYTHING, that goes beyond Black Pain (TM) / White Saviour (TM) movies. Sheesh.”

“When white environmentalists say “we destroyed the planet” I think, “no, we didn’t, you did.””

Kim Crosby, an Arawak, West African, Indian and Dutch queer survivor. (via cutestaznboiondablock)

fucking THIS. who holds the most resources in the world? whites. who uses alla the resources and damn near kills the planet? whites. fuck this ”we’re all in this together” bullshit

This fucking this!! All of it!! I am always amused by white supremacist hypocrisy who would boost about their ‘technological superiority’ but would NEVER own up to the fact that THEY are the ones who have fucked up the planet, they are responsible for the hole in the ozone layer and skyrocketing temperatures. The current decaying of our environment is the perfect illustration of the poisonous essence of white supremacy. The system of production and consumption that currently dominates the world is a direct result of the supremacy of whiteness on not only non-whites (which fuels the engine of capitalism, from Asian sweatshops, to mines in Africa) but also on nature. This is a legacy from the Enlightenment: (White ) Man dominates nature. 

It is also for this reason that I do not fawn over the ‘spectacular success’ of Chinese, Indian, Brazilian and to some extend, South African economies. I do not believe in that system of ‘development’, where growth and wealth accumulation are ends and the well-being of the majority and future generations is rarely taken into account. It is a dangerous and destructive remain of white supremacy and I sincerely hope that most African nations NEVER take that path despite the fact that it is celebrated around the world as the only way out of poverty and inequality.

After going around and destroying almost everything to benefit only themselves, they want to turn around and say “we’re all in this together”.

Mschwwww.
