why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?

and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong

Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both

i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula

Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”

ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world

although perhaps a bit too literal

Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me

you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”

#Ferguson: Reports that 18 year-old Vonderrick Myer shot & killed by off duty #STL cop. Cops say Myer was armed but witnesses say he was only holding a sandwich when he was tased, fell over & then was shot #16times. Needless to say, tensions are high. Photo via @search4swag on twitter

what?!

Smh RIP baby.

Smh this has to stop. These police are abusing their power and taking young black men out one by one. This really makes me upset. First Mike Brown now this.

Happening Now (10.8.14): Oh dear God, not again. Another life lost in St Louis. So little information right now, but it seems that an unarmed 18-year old boy was tased then shot 16 times by an officer, possibly off-duty. Not clear what provoked the event, but I’ll keep you updated as info is released. #staywoke #blacklivesmatter

Be weary of the police reports so far. ALL witness statements seem to contradict it, but the police refuse to interview any of them. They seem to be concocting a story right now to cover for the officer. It’s looking real grim right now.

This hurts my heart to see another one of our own killed by these devilish police.  It’s sick.  It needs to stop

This hurts my heart to see another one of our own killed by these devilish police. It’s sick. It needs to stop

the-adebisi-wombosi-identity:


An ex-police commander who oversaw the torture of more than 100 black men in Chicago police custody walked out of federal prison Thursday, after serving just three and a half years of his sentence.
Jon Burge left the minimum-security prison in North Carolina to report to a halfway house in Florida until his sentence officially runs out in February of 2015, the Chicago Tribune reports.
After the 66-year-old was convicted in 2011 of perjury and obstruction of justice for lying about police torture, several members of the Chicago City Council called for a reparations fund of $20 million — roughly the amount Burge and his “midnight crew” of detectives have cost Chicago taxpayers over the years in legal defense fees and settlements alone. Aldermen renewed those calls on Thursday, saying it’s time for the city to “make amends.”
Anthony Holmes was one of the victims Burge personally tortured — with methods including electric shock — into giving a confession to a murder he says he didn’t commit. Holmes, who is now pushing 70, spent 30 years behind bars as a result and has yet to see any compensation because the statute of limitations on the torture has run out.
"At least he’s got a pension," Holmes said of Burge, according to DNAinfo Chicago. "We came out of there with nothing."
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan tried to strip Burge of his $4,000-a-month police pension, but couldn’t overrule a police pension board vote.
As Burge prepares to start his life again as a free man, In These Times took a look at how much the disgraced commander has cost taxpayers through the years

He should not be free he should rot in prison white men give corrupt white pigs a pass every fucking time. I have not one damn thing nice to say about this racist king ogre pig of a sloppy boss hog but know that he is the worst and one of the main reasons I smell bacon and we’ll leave at that.
