Jessica Williams speaks with Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs about Army regulation AR 670-1

Jessica Williams and Travon (one of the staff writers) do it again!

'I think we could, it’s a matter of when. It’s a matter of what are those dates, it’s a matter of juggling multiple, successful franchises. Is there a downside to managing multiple, successful franchises? I believe we’re figuring out that there is, which is having the time to do them all. So, at what point do we hold back a franchise or have three or four years between parts of a franchise in order to introduce new ones? Or do you introduce new ones within the body of the films? We’re looking at all those things right now.'"

Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.

Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.

When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?

Now. The answer is now. The time is now. Get the fuck off your high horse, Kevin Feige, and start acknowledging us as people.

yknow who needs some support? aromantic people.we grow up in a society where we’re taught that being in love is the best thing in the world and falling in love and getting married and having kids is literally the only thing you should want in life. and for aromantic people, or anyone on the aromantic spectrum, that’s just really, really shitty.

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Mom Explains How to Raise a Brilliant Child

Though it might be a bit outdated, the old saying goes: “Behind every successful man, there’s a great woman.” 
In the case of astrophysicist, author, radio and television host Neil deGrasse Tyson, that great woman would be his mother, Sunchita “Toni” Tyson.
In honor of Mother’s Day, Toni Tyson discusses the unique challenges of raising a future astrophysicist in the Bronx.
Ms. Tyson encouraged her son’s scientific aptitude and interests, even when some teachers and professors had low expectations for Neil due to a racist bias.
"It was not easy—it was a full time 24-hour a day job," says Toni. "All three of my children are brown, and they stay brown all year round, and they even get darker in the summertime. We had to make it very, very clear at a very early age that some people are not going to be very nice to them, but it was not their problem but the other person’s problem. When things did occur, we would get onto it immediately.”
When Neil was in junior high school, Toni says that she had read about a scholarship available through the Department of Education. Neil filled out the application, wrote an essay, and had to get three references. According to Toni, one teacher Neil asked for a reference came back with some harsh feedback. 
"When he presented it to the teacher, he said, ‘What makes you think you can get this scholarship?’" says Toni. "Of course, he came home devastated. As a result, he used another teacher. I had gotten vibes from this individual that I did not like during one of the Parent Teacher Association meetings."
That is just one of many stories of struggles Toni discusses in this wide ranging interview Takeaway Host John Hockenberry. Neil deGrasse Tyson himself also joins in the conversation—listen to the full discussion above to hear more.

Nikolaj is basically a big goof. He’s a big kid. He can smolder one minute and be a total spaz the next. It’s incredibly charming. - Lena Headey
