Martin, Martin Luther King Jr., and Memes: Martin Luther King Jr. Statue Will Join Confederate Statues At Georgia's State Capital @balleralert Martin Luther King Jr. Statue Will Join Confederate Statues At Georgia's State Capital- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Georgia's Capitol have a plethora of its confederate soldier statues across its grounds. Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader John Brown Gordon and U.S. Sen. Richard Russell, an opponent to the civil rights legislation King wanted, sit as reminders to Georgia's oppressive and racist past (and possible present). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ MartinLutherKingJr. will have a statue in his honor that will sit alongside the very regime he advocated against. Member of Georgia Legislative Black Caucus Representative Calvin Myre stated, "The King statue will inspire and give hope to generations to come." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The unveiling was set before the Charlottesville terrorism, but had since been rescheduled due to the recent moves across states to take down confederate statues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) feels "this will be a symbol that the state of Georgia is in the business of erecting monuments to deserving individuals rather than focusing its attention on taking down monuments of the past."

America, Anaconda, and Captain America: Civil War: Infinity War Theory -Theory- - This will contain minor spoilers for Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming - So let's start. So following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Cap (Spoiler Alert) leaves his Shield with Tony Stark after his line "You don't deserve it. My father made that Shield!" So this raises the question. "What weapon will Cap have in Infinity War?" Well most think Tony will just give Cap his Shield back. Which would be stupid honestly, I mean Tony's not gonna forgive a fight like that just in an instant. (At least he shouldn't. Not right away) - "So, here's my brilliant theory." So if you look on my first slide you'll see two pictures of Caps Prototype Shield (Spoiler Alert) that was mentioned in Spider-Man: Homecoming. (Top pic is from Avengers bottom from Iron Man 2) So obviously Tony has been working on a new Shield for Cap ever since they found him in the Ice. But in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Happy said (something like this) "Cap's new prototype Shield." So I think it's safe to assume that Tony finished whatever he made. Now obviously he's not just going to hand it over to Cap after Civil War. (That and he probably has no clue where he is) So here's were Comic Book Accuracy comes in Now the Russos already borrowed this element in Civil War, but I think it's worth a redo. So in the Comics Cap Looses his Shield (Slide 3) and Sharon Carter brings him a photonic energy Shield. Now this Shield can change into an energy staff. Now in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Seasons 3 & 4 Phil Coulson uses an Energy Shield (which he does in the comics as well) So we know the technology exists. Now add a little Tony Stark design to it. "Bing Bang Boom." (I like how I keep using CA: TFA Quotes) So, Tony designs Cap this Shield bc he's Tony. He likes to make stuff. (Iron Man 3) Sharon Carter steals this new tech brings it to Steve. Also one piece of Evidence I found to support this is in the Leaked Avengers: Infinity War trailer, Cap is Catching an energy staff. Now whether this is just an attackers weapon, or his New Shield it's unclear. But he is holding an energy staff. - Comment your thoughts on this theory below. (This could be 100% wrong)

Family, Friends, and Martin: POLICE DEPT. JA C KSON, MISS 20975 6- 8.SI This is Joan Trumpauer Mulholland. This is her mugshot from when she was arrested in 1961 for protesting segregation. Her family disowned her for her activism. After her first arrest, she was tested for mental illness, because Virginia law enforcement couldn’t think of any other reason why a white Virginian girl would want to fight for civil rights. I've been thinking about history class a lot lately. I think almost every white person I know has at least *thought* that they would have been like Joan. We would have had black friends and marched for civil rights and supported MLK and protected little Ruby Bridges as she walked into an all-white school... And then I think of Philando Castile. And Eric Garner. And Tamir Rice. Mike Brown. Oscar Grant. Alton Sterling. Freddie Gray. Sandra Bland. John Crawford. Jordan Davis. Trayvon Martin. I think of how their families will never see justice because the system was not built to protect them. I think of how white terrorists and rapists are safer in this country than black folks who are just existing. I think of how easily people justify their murders. And I think of how simple it is for me- a white person with more privilege than I'll ever fully understand- to turn off the news, to go for a walk... to just not think about this anymore. My whole point comes down to this: My fellow white people- if you think you would have done something *then*, but are doing nothing *now*, then you wouldn't have done anything *then*, either. So think about what side of history you want to be on, because now's the time for doing something.
