Another Movie Trailer of the Day: And the breast cancer awareness backlash continues, with film festival darling Pink Ribbons, Inc. making its stateside debut June 1. The Canadian documentary shows how the movement has become the poster child of corporate cause-related marketing campaigns, and frankly, the trailer alone is enough to change the way you think about the Susan G. Komen foundation: “If people actually knew what was happening, they would be really pissed off.”
Movie Trailer of the Day: “We wanted to hit everybody across the head with a sledgehammer, like listen to what we’re doing out here,” says Ice-T, who directs. Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap drops June 15.

The white man that landed here…he came with two great weapons: one was the Bible and other one was the gun. If he didn’t humble you with a Bible, he’d crumble you with the gun. And he’s still praising the Lord and passing the ammunition all over the world.
The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Hey tumblr, I know I don’t have many followers at this point, but this story of Chick-fil-A vs Bo is very near and dear to my heart. This is a farmer who has been part of my community - who my sister has actually worked with - and he is facing some very familiar bullshit. Bo received a cease-and-desist letter from Chick-fil-A claiming that his slogan “eat more kale” is too close to “eat more chikin”. He has been fighting back, and now he has a kickstarter devoted to him teaming up with a man named Jim to make a documentary on this — however things unfold.
I know not everyone has cash right now to spare, but it you do, Bo has 56 more hours at the time that I’m making this blog post to raise $1800 to finish funding this documentary. It won’t be funded if he doesn’t make it. So, if you do have some money to spare, please consider backing this project (and reblogging this post to spread the word). If you don’t have spare funds, please reblog this post to spread the word.
seriously? chik-fil-a is about to become my former favorite fast food joint. all these recent shenanigans are ridiculous.
