the harassment gamers have faced goes back to the 80's... This is nothing new

agoodcartoon answered:

ah yess i remember those days myself… gamers needed an escort to get into an arcade…. had to walk past lines of screaming fanatics holding signs who would throw quarters at them… the courts had ruled that arcades were technically legal but congress did everything in its power to restrict them …. until most gamers had to drive to another state to find them… or risk their lives using their own consoles at home…

there’s a “photo” going around of Emma Watson wearing a dress that is see-through at the top, showing her breasts, and because apparently literally nobody has any common sense, most people are assuming that it’s real and are reblogging it.

i get that the way it’s being framed on…

Gerzina has written a fascinating account of London blacks, focusing on the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Because of a paucity of sources from blacks themselves, Gerzina had to rely primarily on glimpses through white eyes, especially those of antislavery advocate Granville Sharp. Gerzina is quite adept at culling evidence of a rich, complex black life, with significant interaction (and intermarriage) with the white community.
