White privilege is being a 21-year-old loser who plots and kills 9 people in their church and when you are confronted by the police, armed, you survive without incident. Later, when you’re escorted to the police station, you are not handcuffed and you even have a bulletproof vest for protection. Meanwhile, the media is already infantilizing you and blaming your actions on anything other than you, even though you planned this attack for 6 months. No one is asking why White men are so violent when 87% of mass killings in America have been committed by White men and nobody’s calling you a terrorist when your very intent was to cause terror. —nico-de-gallo

So you’re telling me a white terrorist responsible for the killing of 9 churchgoers is able to be detained safely and will probably be afforded a trial, but children like Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin and Aiyana Stanley-Jones (none of which committed any grievance other than existing while black) absolutely needed to be executed to the point that none of the officers responsible for their murders were convicted of any crimes? —maarnayeri

“I never heard him say anything, but just he had that kind of Southern pride, I guess some would say. Strong conservative beliefs,” he said. “He made a lot of racist jokes, but you don’t really take them seriously like that. You don’t really think of it like that.”

But now, “the things he said were kind of not joking,” Mullins added.

I tell you what, if you “don’t really think of it like that,” you need to START thinking of it like that, because it IS like that. It is ALWAYS like that. White people who tell racist jokes are not joking about their hatred of PoC. They are fully serious and we need to recognize that their overt racism is a sign that they’re potentially dangerous. cumaeansibyl

stop calling coldblooded, racist killers mentally ill. this is how you’re getting mentally ill black men shot and killed by cops. this is literally how you’re giving people with mental illness a bad name. the vast majority of people with mental illness are NOT violent —me

Research has shown that the vast majority of people who are violent do not suffer from
mental illnesses (American Psychiatric Association, 1994)

Amazon to pay self-published authors based on pages read

"It could soon pay more to write lengthier books, if you are an author self-publishing on Amazon’s Kindle ebook platform.

Starting next month, the e-commerce giant will pay independent authors based on the number of pages read, rather than the number of times their book has been borrowed.

The move is aimed at authors enrolled in Kindle Direct Publishing platform – which lets authors set list prices, decide rights and edit the book at any time – and is applicable to ebooks made available via the Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Owners' Lending Library programs."

"The problem is too many white writers seem to want facts, figures, quotas, and step-by-step instructions on how to avoid being called racist, rather than, you know, just writing realistic and complex characters of color"
Calling something exotic emphasizes its distance from the reader. We don’t refer to things as exotic if we think of them as ordinary. We call something exotic if it’s so different that we see no way to emulate it or understand how it came to be. We call someone exotic if we aren’t especially interested in viewing them as people — just as objects representing their culture.

—Fantasy author N. K. Jemisin on The Unexotic Exotic
A writer’s mind is never silent.
Leslie Austin
We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art—the art of words.

—Ursula K. LeGuin
