According to Collider’s sources, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights) has joined the ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ cast. There are no details about what role she might play yet.

At the beginning of September, it was reported that Gina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany and Olivia Cooke were on the shortlist for the female lead. It’s also possible there’s more than one female lead and the other actresses are still in the running for the other part.

Npr something rare is happening in the world of @popca


Something rare is happening in the world of ballet: At the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., two African-American dancers will be the leads in The Washington Ballet’s production of Swan Lake: Misty Copeland, soloist with American Ballet Theatre, will dance the dual role of Odette and Odile, while Brooklyn Mack of The Washington Ballet will dance Prince Siegfried.

Copeland and Mack have something in common that is also rare for young African-Americans: teachers who saw their potential early on and broke the unwritten rule that all ballet dancers must look alike.

Who Gets To Dance In ‘Swan Lake’? The Answer Is Changing

Asenseofselfshop come to my etsy store and @popca


Come to my etsy store and support an autistic artist trying to get by!

There are new mazes up on my store as of today! Visit the link above to see these and many more!

I am autistic and I have sensory processing disorder and severe anxiety. It is hard to do things that other people may take for granted so I recently decided to dedicate time to figuring out what will help me get through the day more easily. I made a few prototypes and finally came up with a design for a sensory marble maze that works both physically and emotionally.

The hand crafted marble mazes I make are perfect for sensory regulation, tactile stimming, fidgeting, and relieving anxiety. They are also helpful for people who have trichotillomania, dermatillomania, and/or are recovering from addiction. The mazes keep your hands busy as well as keep your tactile sensory needs fulfilled so you can regulate your body and mind.

The mazes are very portable and fold up to fit in your pocket easily. They are made of flannel (that has been washed in unscented soap) so they are soft to the touch. You can manipulate the marble inside to make it move around through the maze and it slides smoothly.

I make these mazes with patterned fabrics that are not only for kids because it is important for adults to be able to use stimming or fidgeting to regulate themselves too. These marble mazes excellent for anyone of any age!

I am so excited to share them all with you! See you on etsy!
Also check out the store’s Tumblr here and Facebook page here.

Why the fuck was this comment necessary?

don’t you know it’s black people’s responsibility to carry everyone’s pain. It’s our cross to bear

Ain’t it funny how Black Americans never get considered as displaced indigenous peoples?

And after spearheading several battles against white supremacy and winning rights for lots of marginalized folks, are still expected to LABOR for others still?


non-black people making ugly comments. also way to erase people like me: BLACK INDIGENOUS

“so no one cares” = white ppl & white supremacist infrastructure/rhetoric still don’t care about black lives & demonize/persecute/prosecute black activists & survivors, buuuut I’m more resentful of the black community & being forced to view black people as people than I am upset by black suffering & death, and I feel entitled to exploit black suffering & to free black labor to boost my own visibility, because how dare those black people do & make & have something, anything for themselves without me getting a piece, how dare I not take priority over those people, how dare I not be more successful than them, how dare I not always win?

allllll condensed to under ten words. good shit.

and you know what? not only does this erase black ndns— not only is this profoundly condescending, entitled, elitist antiblack bullshit— hell, not only does this act like non-native black people haven’t been here supporting native activism & speaking out against white supremacist violence and particularly police brutality— why in the fuck does it always have to be a competition? why in the fuck are we always non-black folks’ low fucking bar, that they feel some kind of way about if we don’t “stay in our place” beneath them?

I’m tired of being betrayed by people whose backs I have and who are supposed to have mine. I’m tired of trying to reach out to communities I am a part of, that I have a right to claim, and having them turn around and slap me, my family, my ancestors, their lives and legacies and deaths in the goddamn face.

Y'know, being native American, there’s a lot of truth to it. There are horrible injustices that are do e to the natives that no one talks about. And while it still sucks and is horrible that blacks get killed by racist police pigs, natives do too and no one ever mentions the natives. Native Americans get treated like shit outside of their tribes but no one talks about it. I am native American, and this greatly upsets me that my heritage is mocked and hated and ignored, and then when someone points it out we’re suddenly white supremacists who just want to devalue the black community. You fought for your recognition, why can’t we fight for ours?

…alright. alright. I thought I was done with this conversation, but I wasn’t. but I am going to be nice.

I’m native. I’m black. I am black ndn. my father is black ndn. his mother is black ndn. her mother was black ndn. I’ve got black and native blood from all of my other 3 grandparents as well, each; but in that bloodline alone, not even including my grandmother’s father (a residential school survivor), I’m uninterrupted 4th-5th generation black ndn.

my family have been vocal & physically present activists in both the civil rights movement and the a.i.m. from the beginning of those causes, fucking heavy with the panthers and russell means alike, and we were making waves long before them in radical movements, the arts, academia, and healthcare.

I am a legacy.

just so we’re all clear and it’s all laid out on the table.

I don’t tend to pull rank & credentials on people, because it’s gross, and my ass is an urban ndn for a reason (re: my great-grandfather– he left okie for a reason, he left alabama for a reason, and he left illinois & indiana for a reason; I don’t do my forebears the disrespect of undoing choices to protect their & my safety for sake of blood quantum/on-res authenticity pissing contests). but apparently, it’s necessary.

because being native american

if your “truth” is to throw other disenfranchised peoples under the bus in order to “fight for yours,” people who didn’t hurt you, and who weren’t and aren’t and have never been the perpetrators of native devaluation & victimization (even when they participate in it– black people aren’t perfect; but native & first nations peoples, even when they’re antiblack, aren’t the initiatators of antiblackness in america so much as infected by it)– who have, in fact, been victimized by the same people who hurt non-black natives, your truth is shit.

“no one talks about,” “no one ever mentions,” “no one talks about it.” tell me who no one is? tell me who these people are talking about black lives and not talking about natives– not my black ass– and then tell me how many black activists have built up their movements by implying someone would care, if only non-native black folks were ndns? give me a name. give me a number. give me a single date. give me a quote, from someone who will put their real damn name on it, and will say so unprovoked & unharmed by the people they feel like throwing under the bus, using as a tool to shame people with.

because that’s what “cigarette news” did.

black people built up #blacklivesmatter. black people built up ferguson. black people built up #sayhisname & #sayhername. because it was black blood being spilled in the streets. and where were you? who was “no one” then? who said, name me who said, “if only we were native, someone would care?” who said it?

no one! not a one person.

no one is saying native visibility isn’t a worthy cause. no one is saying native genocide shouldn’t be visible. no one is saying to ignore native issues when all they’re saying is “stop killing our children, stop killing us because of our blackness.”

no one ever said that.

but that’s what you did just now. that’s what @devoted2mariah did in their tweet. that’s what all the non-black natives saying, “oh, but they had a point” on this post are cosigning onto.

you said, if black people are “getting” something– some visibility, some discussion point, some issue that people literally had to be tear-gassed, shot down in the streets, have their buildings burned, riot for, in order for those screams to even be acknowledged outside of black twitter & black ig & black tumblr– you want your damn piece. you said, “you got yours, so where’s mine?”

and when that labor, and that bloodshed, and that suffering wasn’t given over to the people who would piggyback & leech on those movements for free or willingly– because fuck #nativelivesmatter, fuck #brownlivesmatter, fuck #alllivesmatter, when the reason that’s even a catchy hashtag, the reason it sticks in anyone’s memory, is because of the uphill organization & battling to get #blacklivesmatter on the radar to begin with is because of black death & black pain– fuck riding on our coattails and stealing some of our spotlight in our own discussions because y’all wanted the express elevator to the microphone– that’s when it becomes, bitterly, “well, someone would care if we were black.”

resentful actually-aesop sour-grapes “if only someone loved you” amateur hour antiblack disney villain bullshit.

if your fight for recognition plows over black people, native and non-native alike, because of some imaginary “if-onlys,” as if black recognition wasn’t something we paid for in black blood & bone & unmarked graves every day– as if we weren’t ignored and silenced, including by people like you– as if the black community & black activist community don’t consistently act as the spearheads & front-runners of activist movements and expanding discussions like the ones specifically going on against racialized police brutality right now (so long as you don’t steal our pain for your profit, stand on our backs & spit on us in the process)– “your fight” is fucked.

your fight is making me & mine into collateral damage. your fight is utilizing mockery & hatred & ignorance of my people’s heritage to give yours (ours– except for my black blood, of course, because don’t those blacks know when they need to get out of our way?) a boost.

while acting like the black people doing the dying are the selfish ones.

your fight is unjust.

and it’s solely because of your conduct. not because of your cause.

Ta-Nehisi Coates can be identified in many ways: as a national correspondent for The Atlantic, as an author and, as of this month, as a nominee for the National Book Award’s nonfiction prize.

My day started out well even though i was in pain @popca

my day started out well even though i was in pain. it started in the middle of the night and i knew what the day would bring. but i was still in high spirits. but now it’s the middle of the day and my high spirits aren’t allowing me to ignore the pain. it hurts a lot. it could last a few more hours or a few days. sometimes i think this particular pain will one day last forever. but i always hope it doesn’t.

i was able to be on the couch and send some emails from my phone. i closed my eyes. i’m thinking about what this works means and how often the message is to always be on the go. i think about what sounds like an order from seasoned organizers telling us fresh faces that if we’re in the office, we aren’t working. that to do this job means we need to be in the streets always meeting people. and sometimes i can do that. and other times, it is impossible. other times a meeting might mean i have to have send several short video snapchats to a young person. it might mean millions of text messages. it might mean a phone call. it might mean using skype or whatever video messaging service young folks are using now. sometimes i can’t leave my bed.

sometimes i’m at work and my body decides it can’t move anymore and i have to just sit and focus on my breathing. so if i have a one-on-one with you i might have to cuddle with my blanket and talk slowly and low so that i can keep my energy. and sometimes it just means i am not fucking talking to anyone!

i am a Black, disabled, non-binary gender & queer person who is often in pain and still needs to make money in order to live. everyday something is going on with me and it will never stop. sometimes i can ignore it. sometimes i can’t. either way, i need to be respected and to be able to do this work in a way that allows me to live freely. i need to do this work in a way that puts me in conversation with other disabled people and to figure out what we both need to make it work in harmony with each other.

and right now, i must rest again or i might pass out. 

The bitch goddess success @popca





My sister and her family are about to be evicted. They’re very behind on their rent and I’m not able to help them as much as I used to because I’ve incurred more living expenses over the past few months. Please give what you can or boost! They need the money by next week. There’s really no one on our mom’s side of the family who will help her. 

I’m willing to offer editing services for donations for them! Just hit up my askbox.

Thanks to everyone who donated and boosted so far! We raised eighty dollars since yesterday. My sister says she has until tomorrow to pay the landlord. Anything you can spare would help so much. Like I said before, I’ll exchange editing services for donations. I’ll even tack on one shot fanfic commissions for any fandom I’m familiar with. Thanks, friends!

Thanks again to everyone who has helped out! My sister is still pretty far from her goal. If they get thrown out, they’ll have to go to a shelter. If you can spare anything at all– even just a couple bucks– it would add up. And if there’s anything at all I can do in return, let me know!

Why don’t people love themselves more?  If I saw a child eating this, I would immediately swoop them up in a loving blanket and ask “Who hurt you, dear young one?”  This is a punishment.  This is self-flagellation of the soft palette.  This is for people who no longer have the will to go on with life.  I am so hurt that this exists.
