“Of course, there would be no Air Nation without Avatar Korra. She opened the portals and somehow the world began anew for us. And she was even willing to lay down her own life in order to protect ours. There’s no way we can ever repay her for all she’s done. But we can follow her example of service and sacrifice.”— Tenzin (via korrastyle)
If you really look at the storyline as a whole so far, it’s really no surprise that Korra is so broken by the end of the finale. It’s been about 7-8 months since book 1 started and the following has happened:
170 AD: Amon terrorizes RC and Korra deals with him.
“I don’t think that everyone should become a mathematician, but I do believe that many students don’t give mathematics a real chance. I did poorly in math for a couple of years in middle school; I was just not interested in thinking about it.
I can see that without being excited mathematics can look pointless and cold. The beauty of mathematics only shows itself to more patient followers.”—Interview with Maryam Mirzakhani, the brilliant Iranian mathematician who was the first woman to win the Fields Medal (via curiosamathematica)

On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart.
Now this is funny to me. White Supremacy at it’s finest. I can taste it on on the page.
So this white man is shot by two Negroes who happen to be police officers. The whites are upset because the media didn’t cover it like they did brown. This is a rare case in which the whites want the same treatment as blacks. (Savor it)
Thankfully the cops had on body cam’s so this will be pretty open and shut. But here is a run down of what happen. Mr. Taylor is coming out of a 7/11 and someone has called the police saying that Mr. Taylor is going ham and has a gun. The Negroes show up tell Mr. Taylor to take his hands out his pockets. Mr. Taylor doesn’t comply and they shoot him dead. Turns out Mr. Taylor didn’t have a gun. (Police have not confirmed) A tragedy to be sure. Unlike my white counterparts you don’t have to look and believe like me to be considered human.
But in America we all know you are not judged by what you were doing in the moment you were killed you are judged by the things you did 7, 8, 9 years ago. Or in Mr. Taylor’s case less than a year ago.
Since the whites want to black so bad let’s pretend Mr. Taylor was black and the cops were white. Let’s delve into Mr. Taylor’s history. Oh No! Looks like Mr. Taylor had a warrant out for his arrest. For what? “for a probation violation in connection with felony robbery and obstructing justice convictions.”
Let that soak in. If Taylor was black Rush Limbaugh would have been so excited he would have sucked Sean Hannity’s cock on national television talking about: “And..hmm..slurp..the nigger had a warrant…slurp oh yeah another criminal animal…ooh..savages..slurp..slurp…he was a thug that prayed on hard working whites„,slurp he deserved what he got…born criminals.”
Let’s look at Mr. Taylor’s online presence what’s this on his facebook? "im gonna have warrnts out for my arrest soon. ALL my family has turned and snitched on me. ill die before I go do a lot of time in a cell.”
Oh no! I can see Rush Limbaugh getting excited all over again stroking Sean Hannity’s cock. Here is what Rush would say “Look, look..slurp..cough he wanted to die..slurp that thug monkey savage nigger…slurp….cough…hmm..he was ready to kill cops to stay..slurp..stay out of jail with all his friends.”
If Mr. Taylor was black the racists over in Reddit would had shut down the site with so much traffic mocking the fact that Mr. Taylor’s brother claims he had to pull up his pants before laying on the ground. Mr. Taylor had to pull up his pants? He was sagging? The Reddit racists would of had a field day and came up with some mocking meme like “Don’t shoot I’m pulling my pants up.”
The only double standard is that the whites are not calling Mr. Taylor’s death justified and the fact that he has a recorded and convicted criminal past with a weapon appears towards the end of the article and is not in the headline as it would be if he were black. If Whites want to be black so much start a gofundme campaign for the two officers. Show love and support for the cops in this situation. Quote the bible, MLK, and troll accounts of Margret Thatcher implying Mr. Taylor’s death was justified.
The only double standard is that the whites are going waaay out of their way to make it seem like Mr. Taylor has any connection with Mr. Brown
exemplary journalism here. note that to show that this Taylor guy was not the only animal around, the author was ‘kind’ enough to include a link to a ‘video’ showing Mike Brown robbing a convenience store, before adding that he was unarmed all that time. white logic, truly a miracle that literally kills.
