“The thing I’m against is the inauthentic portrayal of Africans,” Gurira says—roles in which she’s supposed to play a woman who’s waiting for her husband to bring her home a fish, for example. “I’m like, African women don’t wait for men to bring them home fish. They go and plow the fucking land and make their own food. You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. I’m not doing that. There are tons of things that I turn down based on the fact that this portrayal of the African woman is so pathetic.”
Danai Gurira is a goddess.
Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.
When we develop the technology that allows humans to live forever, we all agree that Ruthie should be at the front of the damn line, right?

My face today.
Guys! It’s a snowstorm! We have those in the northeast with some kind of frequency! I KNOW Sandy was awful but stop PTSDing all over the damn place and just go home and have a glass of wine and marathon House of Cards and STOP EMAILING ME FRANTICALLY.
I’ve been thinking too much
about the possibilities and challenges of space exploration, inner neurotic phenomena and their expression in social situations, patterns of civilization collapse, and how much I don’t want to go back to work tomorrow.
Now I’m mesmerized by this gif and listening to Robyn, which is a much happier state of affairs.
Let Robyn solve all your problems. Just lie back and brilliance wash over you.
