I actually looked that up and it looks like Activision is doing a fancy thing where if you buy Destiny digitally on the Playstation or Xbox store for the PS3 or 360 before January 15th, 2015, you’ll be able to get a free upgrade to a PS4 or Xbox One copy. So if you don’t want to buy the game current gen because you want it on the next gen, I suggest you reconsider. More details can be found here.

I don’t understand how all Muslims are called terrorists because of what one group of 19 extremist men did 13 years ago.
But white people aren’t called terrorists when they invaded their countries, killed millions of civilians, when they shoot up schools, shoot up movie theaters, and kill random POC. Isn’t that something.
When you say your a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.
Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.
Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.
It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.
It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.
It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.
Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women
black person: *says something factual about racism in the U.S./world
white people: you're being racist against white people...you can't fight hate with hate...etc.
random white person: *says exact same shit*
white people: wow, i never thought of it that way but you're absolutely right.
white person: there is racism against white people. yesterday one of us was treated like a POC living in a white supremacist world! and the other day I was called a cracker! Now I know what it's like to be Black and therefore I am a victim of racism.
But realistically it should be fairly obvious. It’s the same as why theres so much uproar over white casting in TV and films. White is assumed normal, average or neutral. White get’s it’s own descriptors i.e. beige; they also get complimentary descriptors like porcelain, whereas today I bought a concealer called sand. sand. fucking SAND!!!!!! Why is white skin described as something associated with perfection, flawlessness, smooth, soft and precious when my skin is associated with dirt, rough, under your feet, inconsequential.
These descriptors are more than just words, they’re identifiers and create an identity for the person/persons to which they belong.
