Video: John Oliver Skewers the Racism That’s Filling Up U.S. Prisons
In a piece that at 17 minutes long devotes more time—not to mention insight—to analyzing the U.S. prison system than a network news segment could possibly hope for, comedian and commentator John Oliver begins by noting that one in 100 people in the U.S. are currently doing time.

Women against feminism are basically just arguing that their individual lives are fine and they don’t care about what other women go through.

#remember how this movie took female stereotypes and crushed them into a million pieces

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.

Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.

casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.

Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.

what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!
