'This refusal to accept the stark reality that race matters is regrettable. The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination.'

'As members of the judiciary tasked with intervening to carry out the guarantee of equal protection, we ought not sit back and wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society.'”

—Justice Sotomayor

“‘To disagree with the dissent’s views on the costs and benefits of racial preferences is not to ”wish away, rather than confront’ racial inequality.’

'People can disagree in good faith on this issue, but it similarly does more harm than good to question the openness and candor of those on either side of the debate.'”

—Chief Justice John G. Roberts

Sotomayor Accuses [White] Colleagues of Trying to ‘Wish Away’ Racial Inequality

Shorter, Simpler, Off With the Robes version:

JUSTICE SONIA SOTOMAYOR: Being colorblind is not the answer to racism.
JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS: You’re only making racism worse by calling me names!

Apparently, Chief Justice ‘White Tears’ Roberts is doing his best to destroy the illusion of authority previously performed through both the “Supreme” Court voice as well as that of Whiteness!

That is—dig this—this lauded, celebrated, Presidentially-appointed, ultra-educated, blue-eyed bastion of American success and brilliance is no more capable of cogently approaching matters of race, or of discussing them, than a clueless 18 year old boy on Tumblr.

Now go feel good about ya self.

The sweet, sweet chelziebelle suggested that I come up with something for the wonderful creative types within the tumblr Hunger Games community who have been dealing with some rather nasty people as of late.
Writers, artists, giffers…we all love creating this stuff for you, for ourselves, for each other.  It’s fun, it lets us stretch our creative muscles and show our appreciation for something we love.  But we all have families, have jobs, have lives outside of this.
So, to you fabulous creators of Hunger Games fandom, keep your chins up, and to you super awesome people who love what we do and understand that, yes, real life does come first, I thank you for your kind words and support!

Get to know me meme - [1/15] pairings : Amy & Rory (Doctor Who)

"You know when, sometimes you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later, they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, and you meet them and you think, ‘Not bad; they’re okay.’ And then you get to know them, and their face sort of becomes them, like their personality is written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful. Rory’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever met."
