|J. K. Rowling:||I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.|

I’m attracted to intelligence. Not the book smart type of intelligence. I could care less whether you’ve gone to college or how much money you make because of it. I like intelligent conversations that make me think even hours after it’s ended. I soak up words from radical minds.
Mike Brown was stopped for “blocking traffic” aka walking down the street with a friend. When Darren Wilson confronted the boys for “jaywalking” he said “Get the fuck on the sidewalk”. About a minute or two later unarmed Mike Brown was down on his knees with his hands up over his head saying “Don’t shoot!” (after already being shot several times). Darren Wilson then executed a surrendering Mike Brown face to face. Mike Brown’s body was then left in the street for 4.5 HOURS. His memorial was stepped on and urinated on by a dog being “controlled” by a cop. Then on the day that the PD was supposed to (finally) release the name of the officer who murdered Mike, they also released a 15 page incident report of a completely irrelevant “strong armed robbery” that they said Mike Brown was a suspect in. Darren Wilson murdered Mike Brown and the PD then went on to assassinate his character.
Dozens of lies have been told by the PD and $4.2 million has been spent all to protect Darren Wilson. And the police are using excessive force against people peacefully protesting against police using excessive force…….
I dare anyone in your class to try and say that a white teen would have been gunned down by Darren Wilson or any cop for that matter. I dare anyone in your class to try to say that any of this would have happened to a white person.
PS. Tell them to open a history book and their eyes.
