Ray Park - Behind the Scenes

the reason why I watched Episode 1 was because of Darth Maul. 

I was just talking about how much I love Darth Maul. He’s hands down the best part of Episode 1.

THIS OKAY

You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.

Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)

I honestly believe that other entertainment communities have these problems but don’t talk about them. I’m proud that when we find out someone is being completely disgusting, we don’t try to sweep it under the rug. We don’t let them back in to perform at the Grammies next year. We don’t pretend they’re too big to be packed up in a box and removed.

I’m not saying we couldn’t do a better job. But I’m proud of how the community has handled this. Particularly Laci, who is amazing.

Thankfully, the cop who shot this man appears to have been fired and facing charges, according to this report. We need swift action again police officers who use their authority to profile, shoot, harass, injure, kill or otherwise harm civilians, especially since the majority of these civilians are minorities. We cannot just stand by and watch our fellow citizens endure these kinds of treatments.
