CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

If you’re not freaking out about the fall of Net Neutrality, you’re doing it completely wrong.

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

I just.. THIS SENTENCE WILL IGNITE AND FUEL MANY DREAMS

I have scrolled down this about 5 times and it has almost made me cry every time omg

When they panned to Benedict crying, my heart cried

Ok, so I’ve seen this on my dash several times in the past few months, and I’m tired of it: can we maybe NOT take the public struggles and triumphs of a black woman and make it all about a British white guy’s feelings? Like, I’m sorry, her speech wasn’t enough to make your heart cry until you saw Benedict Cumberbatch shedding tears over it? But seriously, if anything should have twisted the knife that Lupita’s speech had jammed into your heart, it was Chiwetel Ejiofor’s expression in the foreground. Compared to the the pain, the pride, the joy on that man’s face…if the white guy crying in the background was what got you, then you weren’t paying attention to what the woman said in the first place.

I automatically assume everyone finds me unattractive until they tell me otherwise.

And then i assume that they are lying to make fun of me

So let me get this straight…

uncanny-tri:

when a white woman who has openly made racist, homophobic, and transphobic remarks, and insulted others on a regular basis dies of a heart attack. I’m supposed to feel bad and if I don’t I’m an asshole.

But when an innocent, unarmed black teen is executed, and his killer is DEFENDED, GIVEN LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY IN DONATIONS, AND GETS TO WALK FREE, im supposed to be cool with that and not make an issue of it?
