Tumblr, have you heard of the word empathy?

thethinlyveiled:

It means that regardless of culture, ethnicity or colour, you have the emotional capacity to identify with someone else’s plight. Therefore, Laci Green, and others with white privilege, cisgender privilege, class privilege, or whatever else that puts one group over another group, can still say that that they support that disadvantaged group in an educated manner without needing to ‘check their privilege’.

Just sayin’.

ROW IN KRAZY KAT LANDS 14 IN JAIL

Carefree Bohemians Start Rough-House and Cop Raids Rendezvous. 

Fourteen would-be Bohemians yesterday appeared in police court and demanded a jury trial on various charges preferred against them by Policeman Roberts, who, with the assistance of two night watchmen, raided the Krazy Kat, which is something like a Greenwich Village coffee house, in an alley near Thomas Circle.

Roberts, under orders to watch the rendezvous of the Bohemians, heard a shot fired in the Krazy Kat shortly after 1 o’clock yesterday morning. The watchmen were quickly pressed into service and a raiding party was organized. 

When Roberts climbed the narrow stairway leading from a garage to the scene of trouble, he found himself in the dining room of the Krazy Kat, confronted with gaudy pictures evolved by futurists and impressionists and what appeared to the policeman to be a free-for-all fight.

At the Second Precinct police station 25 prisoners, including three women — self-styled artists, poets and actors, and some who worked for the government by day and masqueraded as Bohemians by night — were examined.

Those against whom charges were placed gave the following names:

John Don Allen, Cleon Throckmorton and John Stiffen, charged with keeping a disorderly house; Charles Flynn, drinking in public; J. Albion Blake, disorderly conduct; Walter Thomas, assault and disorderly conduct; Harry Rockelly, drinking in public; George Miltry, disorderly conduct; Mitchell McMahon, drinking in public; Joseph Ryon, disorderly; Anthony Hanley, drinking in public; Frank Moran, disorderly conduct, Leo Cohen, drinking in public and disorderly conduct, and Raymond Coombs, disorderly conduct.
