The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
No I have to reblog this again cus I am crying right now look at the dads face
His dad can’t explain to his kid why none of them are black
Okay, I’m not trying to belittle this issue; everyone who is reblogging this for the purposes of social justice should know that this is from the first episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHEILD. The dad is upset because he lost his job and can’t buy his son the toy he wants. He asks him if he wants one and his son says “I’m okay”. He is making that face because yet again he can’t provide for his son the way he wants to.
