Just a few short days before P.T. Anderson’s latest premieres, the trailer for Inherent Vice makes its debut.
HOLY SHIT IS THAT A LADY VOICEOVER FOR THAT TRAILER???????? I mean yeah fine looks like a great movie whatever, but someone seriously tell me if that’s a female character from the movie narrating that trailer, or is that truly just a woman DOING THE FRIGGIN’ VOICEOVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Never mind, after way too much digging, I finally found someone talking about it. Joanna Newsom did the voiceover and she’s a character in the movie (as herself it looks like?). I guess it’s still something, but it’s not nearly as cool as I thought.
Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:
Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.
Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!
Yesterday I spent 3+ hours protesting with more than 400 students that go to my school alone. That doesn’t include the other high schools that participated in the Jeffco district. It got more publicity than we were expecting and we’re grateful for that, but to keep this going would be great. If you agree and are against the censorship of AP US History classes please click on the link and sign the petition.
I fervently hope your efforts to protect your history education are successful. I’ve noticed a lot of the articles are trying to pretend that “kids just want to skip class”, and I think it’s disrespectful and dismissive. The petition is almost at its goal, so I hope people continue to sign it.
In the past, yes, I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again — as I know now that some white people are truly sincere, that some truly are capable of being brotherly toward a black man. The true Islam has shown me that a blanket indictment of all white people is as wrong as when whites make blanket indictments against blacks.
Oh, my gosh. After getting trolled all day by TiA crybabies, this is especially hilarious to me right now.
Reddit bro feels are the true victims of oppression.
People who whine about SJWs are by definition Social Injustice Warriors. They are the defenders of injustice. “Don’t do anything to put things right!” they cry. “It all needs to stay BAD and WRONG. When you see someone suffering, point & laugh instead, or give them a kick while they’re down”. When you whine about someone being an SJW you might as well light up a neon sign with a huge arrow pointing at you & the word “DOUCHE”.
Social Injustice Warriors! Oh I am going to use the fuck out of that!!
This white sasquatch needs to read a history book. Your people stole this land from Native Americans, this land is Native land and it will always be. You have the audacity to complain about the existence of black Americans in America when your people brought them here because whites were too fucking lazy to do their own labor. Then you have the audacity to call Black Americans lazy.
For the people who claim racism no longer exists, this was documented in 2013.
For as much as I can empathize with people being uneducated or misguided, I will never understand what mindset someone has to be in, what upbringing a person endured, what genes they must possess to be so unspeakably vile to the other humans born on this planet. Humans born with the same choices to bodies/social situations/geographical location as everyone else.
You can’t choose your lot in life, but you can chose how you treat everyone else around you. Choose to be decent to each other god damn it. And if you can’t manage that, at the very least,leave everyone else the fuck alone.
