ok but doesn’t the 10pm-5am curfew in Baltimore mean that everyone other than the police working the night shift is now out of work for the week? like how are u going to financially affect tens of thousands of ppl by making it a criminal offense to be outside in the city their tax dollars pay to upkeep?? this is literally the definition of systematic oppression like ur racism is transparent as fuck fuck y’all
so apparently the deal is if you’re out past the curfew, you must have documentation from your employer that states that you’re on your way to or from work. my parents will occasionally talk about when they were living under the marcos dictatorship in the philippines, and one of the first things they usually mention is a curfew that was really similar to this. so word, this curfew system is not only racist n classist as fuck, it’s also a policy that’s reminiscent of a paramilitary state.
my favourite Rosario Dawson story: she was at some award show (I think it was the MTV movie awards, but idk) and some dude was presenting, and he kept groping the women onstage. Like, he made a running gag out of groping every woman who came up to either present or accept an award. So finally Rosario got called up,and when she got onstage, she reached down and grabbed his balls like “OH, YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY? WHO’S LAUGHING NOW, ASSHOLE.”
and that was the end of that “running joke” and why I love Rosario Dawson. the end.
It was during the Spirit Awards. The presenter was Paul Rudd (just presenting not hosting). I don’t remember any running gag, but there was a bit with Eva Mendes. A very tired (scripted) bit, where they said they had something planned, but couldn’t do it and so he ended up grapping her breast, while she read the nominees. Rosario Dawson was not even supposed to be on stage, but she was done with this shit and jumped up, taking matters – that is his package – into her own hand.

“I’m a women’s rights activist and I was getting a little tired that he was grabbing her [Eva Mendes’] boob onstage for half an hour.”
