Children, Comfortable, and Family: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Following If by 'the Latina thing,' she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I'm doing 'the Latina thing. Unless of course she's talking about being multilingual, which we know isn't a 'Latina thing It's a '21st century' thing Laura Ingraham And Guest Mock 'Anastasio' Ocasio-Cortez For Doi... Laura Ingraham and a guest on her prime-time Fox News show mocked Rep yahoo.com Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez O @AOC Following "How dare they refuse to say their name in a wrong accent & not mangle their own family name so that I can feel more comfortable instead of look inside myself & examine why something as small as *a person's name* makes me uncomfortable in the first place?? This is an outrage!" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez* Following @AOC By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as "Cortez," which lI can only imagine is bc that sounds more 'stereotypically' Hispanic probably incites more anxiety' for them Pro Tip: My last name is not "Cortez," just as theirs isn't "Inara" or "Carl" or "Hann ." 5:51 PM -20 Mar 2019 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Following @AOC My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That's my name. No, you can't say "Cortez." l've never used that in my life. "Cortez" is referring to someone else Even if they're trying to be rude + wrong, my dad's last name was Ocasio anyway. (His name was hyphenated too, though.) 6:01 PM 20 Mar 2019 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Following For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents' names. It's not a "progressive, new thing." It's just how some names work. PR hyphenates, others mark differently. Your last name: the families that came together to make you. AOC is also fine though :) 6:19 PM-20 Mar 2019 imfemalewarrior: endangered-justice-seeker: Some pundits dislike it when people of color pronounce their own names correctly Getting someone’s name correct is a sign of Respect.  -FemaleWarrior, She/They

Animals, Ass, and Birthday: SNEp DUMBO OFFICIAL TRAILER takineko: libertarirynn: futched: libertarirynn: dragonkyng: libertarirynn: friendly-neighborhood-patriarch: the-mighty-birdy: animationtidbits: Dumbo - Official Trailer Yo quick question why HELLO DARKNESS MY OLD FRIEND There are just so many problems here In the original movie the animals talk and baby Jumbo is called “Dumbo“ by the mean mom elephants. Why in the world do these kids who are supposed to be his friends call him Dumbo? Who thought it was a good idea to make a talking animal movie human centered? That stupid ass slowed down indie remix of “baby mine” is as hilarious as it is awful. Somebody tell Hollywood that you don’t need a slowed down indie remix in every movie trailer. Horrifying CGI is horrifying Why do we keep letting Tim Burton ruin Disney Classics? 1. Becuase its been a weird thing that Dumbo’s name has only ever been an insult and he never had a real name. 2. Not a rehash of the original? Isnt that a good thing? 3. No comment on that. 4. I’ve seen worse 5. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ He absolutely did have a real name did you not read right there where I said it was Jumbo? Literally the whole point of a remake is to be a remake of the original? Change it too much and it’s a reboot. 1. Call me crazy but I swear Jumbo was his mom’s name, and one of the elephants was like “oh look, he’s like a little Jumbo!” And that one bitch was like “with those ears? Nah, he’s Dumbo.” 2. The point is to make money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was more of a tax/copyright/contract thing. His name was definitely Jumbo Jr. because the stork character sings “happy birthday Jumbo Jr.“ at the very beginning of the movie do not fight me on this. Their family last name was JumboHis mom was called Mrs. Jumbo right? In the clip above she very specifically says that his name is Jumbo jr. I’m going to assume that as circus elephants, they don’t have surnames.

Bodies , Taken, and The Worst: and come to heoven Chden thg bestsh2 With m Uu? thecrimsonarcher: jmichealg: sixpenceee: Letter from a trapped coal miner saying goodbye to his wife, Tennessee 1902. His name was Jacob Vowell. Elbert was his 14 year old son.  Man… heartbreaking. The tragedy at the Fraterville Mine in Anderson County, one of the worst mining disasters in Tennessee history. Out of the 216 men who were killed during the explosion, only 89 bodies could be identified and were taken to the Fraterville Cemetery, where they buried in what was called the “Miner’s Circle”. If anyone reading this gets the time, look for the other Fraterville letters. By the time you finish reading them all, you’ll feel dead inside. There was one in particular that haunts me to this day, where one man wrote that he was feeling sleepy and was about lay down. His brain was deprived of oxygen and he was suffocating to death and that’s why he was so tired. He probably died right after finishing his note. Another man lamented he would not see his newborn baby and apologized to his wife for leaving her as a widow. A letter to a son simply read, “Never work in the mines”. The explosion was triggered by a lamp on a miner’s helmet. Back in those days, they didn’t have battery powered headlights like they do now. They had to use candles. When the flame from the candles came into contact with methane gas that had built up in one of the mine shafts that had not been properly ventilated, it blew the mine to hell and back and destroyed some of the town in the process.
