  10. "In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester."

    i feel like this study deserves an article written about it that ends pushing for cheaper tuition costs rather than one that ends encouraging students to major in things that make money

    owning-my-truth:

    I live a 30 minute drive from here and this is an utter and complete tragedy. My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families and I am hoping that they all recover fully from this terrifying act.

    I am wondering, though, about the elephant in the room: white male violence.

    With each tragedy and incident of mass violence perpetrated at the hands of white men, these discussions come up, although white progressives usually subsume them under discussions about gun control (which is also necessary, but let us not forget that white men also have disproportionate gun ownership in this country over other racial and gender groups). The Newton massacre was yet another reminder of this, and now again, today:

    White boy walks into school (or other public institution), and goes on a rampage wounding or killing dozens in the process.

    Why is this not surprising anymore? Well the facts:

    70% of mass killings in the U.S. since 1982 have been by white men

    Check out this timeline of mass shootings in the U.S. to see for yourself.

    Many of us POC and black folks in particular wax long about this, but what if the statistics were reversed and 70% of mass killings in the U.S. were being committed by black men rather than white men? How would that not spark a national conversation about black male violence and also be used to pathologize black men as (even more) criminal and violent?

    But at the same time, it’s so clear that the ways in which whiteness and maleness operates is by conferring invisibility on the subject. It allows us to give these boys and men the benefit of the doubt, when we would never do the same for a POC. It allows us to be willfully obtuse about the need for us to address male violence across all racial lines (due to patriarchy)  and specifically white male violence and their internalized desire to control their environments and surroundings, leading to these incidents of mass violence (due to white supremacist patriarchy). 

    We would think that in a country where violence and genocide perpetrated by white men has been with us since 1492, that this wouldn’t be a conversation that we could somehow “miss.” You would think that with incident after incident of mass violence, that we would try to address the larger systems of domination (white supremacist capitalist patriarchy) which these boys and men have internalized, rather than deflecting immediately into an ableist discussion of their mental health. Addressing these systems of domination is an act of love and empathy for all people, them included, to create a society of love, compassion and mutual respect, where mass acts of violence like this are a thing of the past.

    But, no, this is America. What do you expect?

    Again my heart goes out to the victims and their families and I wish you all a speedy recovery in this difficult time. 

    Also addressing a related issue that always goes unquestioned in the wake of these tragedies is why it is only these acts of violence in upper-middle class neighborhoods that are marked as tragedies, when dispossessed communities of color are visited daily by the violence of the state and a racist capitalist misogynist anti-queer society.

    As my African American Studies professor noted, the media and these communities always say “Why us? This isn’t supposed to happen here”, with the obvious implication that such violence should only happen “there”.

    can we NOT turn this into a discussion of social justice just yet?

    something terrible happened. I don’t care if a white, black, hispanic, asian, or any other race did it. no need to turn this into some pretentious PSA about racism and how much murica sucks yet.

    Funny how when the discussion of white pathology comes up, somebody always has to go ‘can we not turn it into a soshul juztis post?”

    Nope

    This NEEDS to be discussed.

    As long as white people continue to mass murder at an overwhelming rate and still be given the benefit of the doubt while POC are killed by police for sneezing wrong, IT WILL BE A SOSHUL JUZTIZ ISSUE

    Deal with it.

    White male violence needs to be deconstructed, analyzed, broken down, everything

    White male violence is the root of this issue

    reblogging for the commentary

    I mean really, it is a social justice issue already because it does demonstrate that there was some social wrong that needs to be addressed; analyzing it further by bringing race into it is necessary because as the people above expressed, it’s a fuckin’ trend.It’s amazing to what lengths people will go to remain comfortable when problems are staring them right in the face, really.

  18. smashsurvey:

    Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

    Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

    Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

  24. Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here's how.

    boomeyer:

    I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

    Learning to…

    ok but imagine

    you’re sitting in the audience of a lets play panel at a con

    it’s about to start and the let’s players are seating themselves

    there’s game grumps, markiplier, tobuscus, and an unfamiliar face

    as they’re settling in and checking their mics, the man nobody recognizes says

    "what’s up everybody it’s cr1tikal"

    the entire audience shits their collective pants

    the panel ends immediately

    there are no survivors
