All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling. 
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest. 
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.

And it took half the people in half the time…smh

The good news is, if Wilson’s fund took only half the people, that tells us that way more people support justice for Michael Brown, which is pretty sweet! Wilson’s fund only appears more influential because fewer people were willing to give more - thus raising the money with half the people in half the time. Sure, that’s financial clout, but it’s still not the raw numbers of Michael Brown’s fund - or the raw numbers of people who support the people of Ferguson in general.
What we can take away from Wilson’s gofundme is that his supporters are able to give more money than Michael Brown’s supporters - ”able” being the key word. In short, the differences between the two gofundmes suggest that racists have more expendable income than non-racists. If that isn’t perfect proof of white privilege as it relates to income and wealth disparity in America, I don’t know what is.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

In comics, the “story” isn’t the words in the balloon, and the storyteller isn’t just the person deciding on plot elements. Storytelling comes from the artist/s of the comic as well as the writer/s of the comic.

The best way to explain storytelling to comics readers is to…

Can we please stop stealing people’s art without their consent?

Especially Japanese artists?

Because believe or not, when you take a dojinka’s art and post it somewhere else without permission, not only will you make them very sad (not to mention angry) when they find out, but…
