Take a facet of crime, and then look at television shows/movies that feature those criminals as protagonists.

White mobs.

I mostly want to talk about this as a TV phenomenon, but pick a crime, any crime, and Western media has probably made a movie/TV series/play/etc. with a white person that romanticizes the criminal activity. No matter what, a white person can do whatever terrible crimes and still have a TV/movie fanbase that loves them.

When you see black or brown people committing crimes on screen, you are to see them thugs and criminal masterminds and people to be beat down.

When you see white people committing crimes on screen, you see a three-dimensional portrait of why someone might commit that crime, how criminals are people too, and how you should even love them for the crimes that they commit because they’re just providing for their families or they’ve wronged or they’re just people and not perfect. This is particularly a luxury given to white male characters, since there few white female criminals as protagonists.

If and of the above shows were about black or brown folks, there would be a backlash of (white) people claiming that TV and movies are romanticizing criminals and are treating them too much like heroes and that it will affect viewers and encourage violence and “thuggish” behavior. And yet fictional white criminals get to have a deep fanbase who loves these white criminals, receive accolades and awards, get called amazing television that portray the complexities of human nature. Viewers of these characters see past the atrocious crimes and into their humanity, a luxury that white characters always have while characters of color rarely do. The closest that mainstream TV has come to showing black criminals as main characters is probably The Wire, and even then, the criminals share equal screen time and equal status as main characters as the police trying to stop them.

The idea that crime can be so heavily romanticized and glorified to such a degree is undoubtedly a privilege given to white characters. The next time you hear someone talk about Dexter Morgan or Walter White in a positive way, it may be an opportunity to rethink how white people can always able to be seen as people no matter what they do, while everyone else can be boiled down to nothing but a criminal.

I always felt extremely uncomfortable with this trope because, not only is it racist, but it tends to feed into the already too common propensity society has to humanize, romanticize and exonerate irrevocably terrible white men. Like if you’re a white man and you commit awful crimes, you will likely go down in history as a legendary celebrity and historical figure

I’ve thought about this but this articulates it well

so important

This beautiful young female queen (I am guessing by her teeth and stature) 
Has been hanging around my house the last two- three days
We have been feeding her, and the first day she chowed down like she hadn’t eaten for a while
She is super friendly around humans
Im unsure how she does with other cats or dogs
She seems to be used to being an indoor cat and I have been posting like crazy but no one has claimed her
We are unable to take her in due to our household already having a very territorial queen and two hounds.

I am posting this because I am trying to find her a home
Neither of the humane societies around my area are able / willing to take her
Please boost this
This amazingly beautiful girl deserves a home

I live in Pierce County Wisconsin. beccastew:

“I’m also a killer. I’ve killed a lot, and if I need to I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me.”
Actual quote from Ferguson “law enforcement” officer and 35-year police veteran, Dan Page. But hey, let’s keep focusing on all those unreasonable “looters and rioters” (via staininyourbrain)

“1,225%”

That’s how much the price of college in America has increased over the past 4 decades

That is not a typo. 

(via luminariums)

Lol and with (and I’m on mobile but a simple google search will provide you with the source) over 50% of student borrowers in default and/or late on their payments, this is going to be a bubble pop like the housing market and no one seems to give a shit.

Like the economy is about to take a dump over this and then employers have the audacity to flip the tables when 80% of the most recent graduates (again, another google search will provide this number) don’t have a job lined up after college because “experience” (read: free labor in the form of internships) is what we lazy Millennials should have been pursuing instead of those “worthless” degrees in ALL fields: STEM, humanities, whatever…

It’s all back asswards man.
