Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.
Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.
Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot. (x)
Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy

dragon-inspiration:

Genus Araripesuchus - Cretaceous crocodyliforms that existed 125 to 66 million years ago. 5 species are documented in this genus, including the “boar croc” (my favorite), “dog croc”, and “rat croc” illustrated here.

With their fast, long legs but still distinctly crocodilian bodies and heads, these are some of the most dragon-like creatures, extant or extinct, that I’ve ever seen.

DRAAAAAGONS!

but imagine if we had tiny little dragons

the size of puppies

and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute

the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad
