We spent the day together
And the night apart
Talking to each other in our thoughts

He called me in the morning
His voice a soft shade of rasp
Saying that I was his choice of luck

Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.

By Lisa Wade, PhD

A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.

Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”

Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.

I would like Martin Scorsese to be interested in a female character once in a while, but I don’t know if I’ll live that long.

the criticism of scorsese is absolutely true and valid but lmao honestly how dare you bring quentin tarantino into this by calling him “a basic white guy” and lumping him in with pedophile rapist woody allen… quentin has written better WOC than half of hollywood’s biggest directors right now. kill bill features 6 lead women (3 being WOC) all incredibly strong and complex, and death proof has two different sets of kickass women and WOC. two movies alone featuring about a dozen female characters. so what the hell are you even talking about. the book that jackie brown was based on featured a white female lead but quentin cast pam grier simply because she was the right actress for jackie, absolutely no hesitations because of her race. so go ahead and demand better women from scorsese but tarantino has been establishing a standard for filmmakers to write better female characters since the ’90s.
