Keep it consistent, you will always have positive results with consistency. Keep it close, you need it more than ever. Keep it sincere, it’s for your heart, not to show everyone that you’re “religious.” Keep it real, you’re standing before the One that gave you those two legs and the ability to stand.

Aiya Van Kooten everyone

When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/8626910/Predator-mode-scares-off-burglars

This is the best story of my life

“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!! 

Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!

This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

literal hero

The best part about the Simpsons was it was written all by educated men that wanted to be comedians but saw things wrong with the world and wanted change.

Anonymous asked: What is Black Tumblr?

dynastylnoire:

incogneeco:

Technically, we are the collective members of Tumblr who subscribe to the Black/African diaspora. If we are alike in no other way, it is in our shared ‘getting shitted on’ by our respective majorities. 

More specifically, we are the bump in the night for all those internet bigots out there. We are the sigh on the back of the neck as they hit the post button on that one text post. We are the side-eyes in the night. We are glorious justice.

DO NOT come for us, unless we send for you. And if we send for you, you’d better arm up because we are coming with a verbal assault so vicious, your children’s children’s great-grandchildren will know better. We will shade you up and read you down. We are the ones who knock. We are not the hero Tumblr deserves, but we are the hero that Tumblr NEEDS.

Anything else?
