But can you actually look up what’s fucking going on, y'all? Funko is donating all proceeds from these figurines, which, “includes medical professionals across different races and ethnicities, representing the impact of the pandemic across all spectrums,” to the GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief fund, to help support frontline workers. GlobalGiving has a fantastic rating on Charity Navigator and is generally speaking a trustworthy organization. Funko is not making any actual profit off of these figurines. I hate capitalism. But for once, a company is actually putting their money where their mouth is. So like….can we not? Hey guys, reblog this please!

I just need to work for them tbh  And they openly support Black Lives Matter. They are GOLD ❤️ they also have an AMAZING dairy free almondmilk ice cream. changed my life They’ve also gone in front of congress to testify that every shitty business’s claims that minimum wage hikes are bad are complete bullshit Ben and Jerry have also been arrested for peaceful protest at least one time, so we know they’re the coolest Support Ben and Jerry’s! I basically lived on Ben & Jerry’s the entire year I turned 18. I know the price upsets some people, but it’s really worth supporting the causes behind the brand. : m00kieblaylock: inevitable-anna: groot-scamander: an-gremlin: octoberfutch: kvngkoala: caramelmacchiatoshawty: amroyounes: Capitalism at its best.  Some role models we should all consider.  I am a fan of Hagen Daz, but after reading this, I need to get me some Cherry Garcia!

fandom: Tumblr and Social Impact in 2019For 2019, our Social Impact team (@action​) compiled trends they saw across the platform. From #BlackExcellence365 to National Hispanic Heritage Month, there’s no doubt that Tumblr’s community is incredibly passionate about and dedicated to social issues. During Women’s History Month, we shared stories from Black women, trans people, women of color, and more from all industries in threads that continued throughout the year. The tag #postitforward was where many of you shared mental health stories, uplifting others in an honest and raw way. The community mobilized for climate change with the hashtag #FridaysForFuture, rose to honor new communities during our first ever #APAHM campaign, and celebrated all things LGBTQ+ year-round with #tumblr pride!When we looked at all of the data, we weren’t surprised at which issues are the most important to you, the Tumblr community. You all engaged in these conversations and put action into your words. Whether you created art, wrote, edited GIFs, or posted selfies as part of your activism, you showed up. While this list is ranked by engagement volume, there is no value judgment as to the importance of any one issue over the other.Mental healthBlack cultureFeminismPride monthEqualityIntersectional feminismClimate changeCapitalism Racism Blackout Stay passionate, Tumblr.

dreamyblackchild: transsexual-power: dreamyblackchild: White folks ain’t going to reblog this. They want their version of MK Jr. that only said “I have a dream”.  Guilt tripping white people into reblogging stuff isn’t going to make you have more allies, just saying. It’s not about guilt tripping.  It’s about white people, even well-intentioned white allies, being too comfortable in their privilege and not learn more about the complex beliefs of civil right leader MLK Jr other than his “I have a dream” speech. MLK Jr. talked extensively about American Imperialism, Capitalism, and White Fragility/Complicity throughout his career and activism, which most Liberal white allies won’t share because they’re too comfortable with the white lies they were taught in schools.  : WHITES, IT MUST FRANKLY BE SAID, ARE NOT PUTTING IN A SIMILAR MASS EFFORT TO REEDUCATE THEMSELVES OUT OF THEIR RACIAL IGNORANCE.

thefloatingstone: scottandhiskind: thefandomdropout: Capitalism done got ahold of  Sesame Street  Okay but this doesn’t tell the full story. The only reason Sesame Street was sold to HBO, was because it was literally on the verge of being cancelled. This was because Sesame Street never received funding from PBS and instead made all of its revenue from things like books, video tapes, and live shows. Unfortunately, with the rise of things like you tube, people no longer paid for these things, so their funding was next to nonexistent and PBS couldn’t help them because most of their funds go to supporting channels/shows that don’t bring in any revenue at all and service mostly rural areas. This is where HBO comes in. They ended up buying Sesame Street to basically save it from the brink of destruction and to let it still be a resource. Also, this is one time where a corporation wasn’t entirely greedy. Yes HBO will still own Sesame Street and new episodes will air on its service, however part of the deal gave Sesame Street a massive flow of cash that will allow them to make twice as many episodes a season. Additionally, new episodes will still air on PBS, it will just be a few months after they air on HBO (which, let’s be real, isn’t gonna matter to little kids). So kids from poorer homes will still have access to the show and will now also have twice as much content to educate them. Sure having it on HBO first isn’t ideal, but they also aren’t playing the role of the evil corporation this time Sometimes, just sometimes, it turns out things will be okOnce again, beware of half truths.
