"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case 
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.

Dear Tumblr,
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
This.
Movie.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like.  He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it:  Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
EDIT:  ONE MORE THING!! A critic asked who his current favorite actor is and his answer was Viola Davis…
This was YEARS before The Help.


Release in the US is limited and starts in theaters June 27, 2014. Radius-TWC is the company distributing the film.

"真の力"

I recently was reminded how important it is to remain calm in any situation. Or at least pretend you are calm until you are calm.
I’m not saying to be cocky, I’m not saying to lie or portray yourself as someone you are not. What I am saying is you can’t let your inner insecurities, your doubt, creep into your actions. Recently we had a third man riding with me and my partner. When someone is certified and I am precepting I pretty much allow them to run the emergencies. If they are going to do something wrong that is dangerous to the patient or themselves I stop them. If they are forgetting something I will prod them in an attempt to remind them.
I do this because I think realizing how it really feels in an emergency is very important. You can’t reproduce those types of pressures, those type of scenarios in a classroom.
One of the patients we had ended up being very rude, even making racist remarks. (Which didn’t really make sense because the remarks were against his race.) This, plus the fact he was very angry due to his chest pain, flustered the third rider and derailed his treatments. Me and my partner took some control of the call before handing the reigns over to the third man once again. After the call I explained to him that it isn’t always about knowing everything one hundred percent, it’s staying calm and remembering the steps and showing confidence in your actions. Not because you have to look a certain way, but because patients respond to that. They want to know you are the professional and that you are in charge of the situation.
Keep calm and continue treating your patient.

This is really disturbing. It happened before it and it could happen again. As someone who is 1.) Jewish. 2.) Had family LEAVE the Ukraine because of anti-Semitism I am very concerned about this.

Pardon me while I go off on a bit of tangent. If shit does go down like it did decades ago? And no one does anything about it? Everything that those wonderful and brave heroes did to stop the Nazis? It’ll be for nothing. How many does it take before people will do something? A thousand? Ten thousand? How many? If we fuck this up again…I will have lost hope in humanity.

Holy shit
