I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too. "silence is not an option," roxane gay (via brookehatfield)

Bill Sienkiewicz 1990: Classics Illustrated #4: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick

When First Comics and Berkley Publishing joined forces to revive the venerable Classics Illustrated series, Sienkiewicz was attracted to the prospect of adapting a classic book to help transform the image of the comics medium:

More than anything, the superheroes have perpetuated this perception of the medium as being just for children. But that’s like saying, ‘There are only these kinds of movies’ or ‘There are only those kinds of movies,’ and then along comes Citizen Kane. To me, the comic-book medium is a way of using words and pictures together to say more than either the words or the pictures alone.

A lot of people are furious with the AP for this Renisha McBride tweet

In a case that highlights yet again the often deadly combination of racial profiling and gun ownership, Renisha McBride’s murderer was convicted Thursday on charges of second-degree murder.

Although McBride’s tragic story is one of precious few examples in which black victims of racial profiling receive the media attention and jury verdicts they deserved, such was not the case in the immediate aftermath of the McBride verdict. In fact, the Associated Press, one of the most respected wire sources worldwide, sent out a particularly galling tweet Thursday, reducing the situation to a “Detroit homeowner” who “fatally shot a drunk woman” on his porch.

Institutional privilege is still a problem for both the media and the public alike.
