hoaxzine: November 20th is Transgender Day of Remembrance This number is made up out of thin air. I certainly support any opposition to gender-based violence, but I don’t like the spurious statistic that’s going around. Let’s check the facts we use, okay?

navajomoose asked: What's your take on rappers like George Watsky, who, though they might well be hip hop fans themselves, seem to make a conscious effort to cultivate a fanbase of "I hate rap, but THIS is good" suburban white kids? To what extent do white rappers have a responsibility to defend the community whose music they're performing against the often kinda repulsive opinions of their own...

Anything you want to know about me, like my history or my views, fire at will. Anything about hip-hop, bombs away. Any sort of advice or...

Culture not a costume
First little kid that came to our door, K-L asks her, “what is your costume?” and the little girl chirps, “gypsy!” Next batch of kids has one in it who replies to the same question, “Indian!” We stopped asking. kind of wanted to talk to parents, but couldn’t really chew out kids. Dismaying eye-opener.
