THE MAGIC BEGINS: 8. a scene you really wanted to be in the movies, but wasn’t.
"I didn’t want anyone to talk to me," said Harry, who was feeling more and more nettled.
"Well, that was a bit stupid of you," said Ginny angrily, "seeing as you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels."
Harry remained quite still as the impact of these words hit him. Then he wheeled around.
"I forgot," he said.
"Lucky you," said Ginny coolly.

OK AT THIS POINT I AM CONVINCED THAT TRELAWNEY IS A 100% LEGIT SEER
you know what else
in greek mythology there was a seer named Cassandra who was given her powers by the god Apollo, and Apollo later cursed her so that nobody would believe any of her prophecies, which all turned out to be true, when she refused to sleep with him.
what’s trelawney’s great-grandmother’s name? CASSANDRA.
CAN WE ALL APPRECIATE TRELAWNEY RIGHT NOW
Can we all appreciate the detailed effort JK Rowling puts into her novels?
BUT IS THIS THE END OF NARUTO AS WE KNOW IT?! OMG I DON’T KNOW IF I’M READY!!!!! (Even though I told myself it would probably “end soon” about two years ago…)
I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
Jon Stewart is back from vacation, and he’s not wasting any time going after one of his favorite targets: Fox News.
"Did you just ‘he who smelt it dealt it’ racism??"
This is so worth your time. Watch it please.
