    and foster families that aren’t treated as “substitute” families…

    and have them all be vitally important characters…

    If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

    Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

    Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

    On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

    If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

    Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown  

     

    wHY DOES THIS HAVE SO FEW NOTES

    I’m sure you’ve all seen what’s up with Tumblr, but this is REALLY serious, guys.

  7. CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

    collegehumor:

    image

    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.

    By golly gee! I keep forgetting that Black people didn’t exist until the Fresh Prince of Bel Air came on television! Or that Black people existed in anywhere else than Africa even with slavery going on :) My apologies.

    Anyway, here’s proof that Beethoven was Black:

    "… Said directly, Beethoven was a black man. Specifically, his mother was a Moor, that group of Muslim Northern Africans who conquered parts of Europe—making Spain their capital—for some 800 years.

    In order to make such a substantial statement, presentation of verifiable evidence is compulsory. Let’s start with what some of Beethoven’s contemporaries and biographers say about his brown complexion:

    Beethoven2

    (Louis Letronne, Beethoven, 1814, pencil drawing.)

    "Frederick Hertz, German anthropologist, used these terms to describe him: ‘Negroid traits, dark skin, flat, thick nose.’

    Emil Ludwig, in his book ‘Beethoven,’ says: ‘His face reveals no trace of the German. He was so dark that people dubbed him Spagnol [dark-skinned].’

    Fanny Giannatasio del Rio, in her book ‘An Unrequited Love: An Episode in the Life of Beethoven,’ wrote ‘His somewhat flat broad nose and rather wide mouth, his small piercing eyes and swarthy [dark] complexion, pockmarked into the bargain, gave him a strong resemblance to a mulatto.’

    deathmaskdeathmask2
    Beethoven’s death mask: profile and full face

    C. Czerny stated, ‘His beard—he had not shaved for several days—made the lower part of his already brown face still darker.’

    Following are one word descriptions of Beethoven from various writers: Grillparzer, ‘dark’; Bettina von Armin, ‘brown’; Schindler, ‘red and brown’; Rellstab, ‘brownish’; Gelinek, ‘short, dark.’

    In Alexander Thayer’s Life of Beethoven, vol.1, p. 134,  the author states, “there is none of that obscurity which exalts one to write history as he would have it and not as it really was. The facts are too patent.” On this same page, he states that the German composer Franz Josef Haydn was referred to as a “Moor” by Prince Esterhazy, and Beethoven had “even more of the Moor in his looks.’ On p. 72, a Beethoven contemporary, Gottfried Fischer, describes him as round-nosed and of dark complexion. Also, he was called ‘der Spagnol’ (the Spaniard).

    Other “patent” sources, of which there are many, include, but are not limited to, Beethoven by Maynard Solomon, p.78. He is described as having “thick, bristly coal-black hair” (in today’s parlance, we proudly call it ‘kinky’) and a ‘ruddy-complexioned face.’ In   Beethoven:  His Life and Times by Artes Orga, p.72, Beethoven’s pupil, Carl Czerny of the ‘School of Velocity’ fame, recalls that Beethoven’s ‘coal-black hair, cut a la Titus, stood up around his head [sounds almost like an Afro].  His black beard…darkened the lower part of his dark-complexioned face.’

    They whitewashed BEETHOVEN?  O_O

    Thank you, history/fact-checking Tumblr.

    I now feel the need to go burn every white-skinned image of Beethoven I can find.

    Can someone find me an emoticon or gif of someone who’s mind is so thoroughly blown she can’t make mouth-words? Because that is how I feel right now. Literally every other adult in my entire family has a music degree and plays an instrument. I’ve gone my entire life surrounded by dedicated, educated musicians. I majored in music in college for a year. And not ONCE, has any of this ever been mentioned. Not once has even the POSSIBILITY that Beethoven might not have been white ever been considered. Literally every image I have ever seen of Beethoven has been white. Like, omg. I just can’t.
