rabbivole:

once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 

'protests turn violent'

'clashes with police'

'violence breaks out'

'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 

all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!

i’m really tired of it

loaded language and media bias

the omission of agency in the language surrounding ferguson and gaza is astounding. it is as though both the ferguson police department and the israeli army are pillars of light through whom actions flow. they “do” nothing, to hear the media tell it. 

diagram these headlines, folks. you’ll find racism.

You can watch the footage they show with these headlines and all you see are police throwing tear gas.

So let me preface this story by saying I don’t actually have a set time I have to come in to work (as long as do ~eight hours, basically), but usually I’m in between six and seven. Today I got to work around 7:30 and my boss asked me why I was late, for which I told him, “Well, I had trouble getting to sleep last night and I kept waking up in the middle of the night, so I slept in a little. And then I totally forgot to make rice the night before for my lunch, so I made rice -” and my coworker busted out laughing and said, “So that’s your excuse? You slept in and you made rice?” And I said, “I mean, yeah…I’m not going to lie about.”
