Michael “Mike” Brown’s stepfather holding up a cardboard sign proclaiming the Ferguson, MO police killed his unarmed son, who would start his college classes today. Protests and rioting soon followed. Looks like something out of Do The Right Thing. View high resolution

When minor characters who are also ethnic minorities start talking among themselves in their native tongues, they sometimes take advantage of their invisibility to say things. Sometimes they break the Fourth Wall and start ranting about the movie director. Sometimes, they spout random obscenities or natter about their lousy lunch. It’s all in not-English, so whatever they say doesn’t matter! And the actual translations of their lines can be a secret source of hilarity in films where actors are instructed to use a Gratuitous Foreign Language (GFL) in order to make a scene sound more authentic. When some Native Americans cast in Westerns were told to speak their own language to add some authenticity, these actors took the opportunity to crudely editorialize about their director, which allegedly resulted in Native American audiences (in)explicably cracking up laughing during scenes that were meant to be dramatic.

Join us tomorrow to talk about why Net Neutrality and the internet are so important to us! 42 national civil rights organizations recently signed on AGAINST net neutrality, it’s time to show them that we disagree! Tweet with us #MyInternetIs tomorrow at 12pm EST/9am PST!
Here are some examples (click to tweet!):
#MyInternetIs an open discussion space where I learn and grow from folks I would have otherwise never met. http://bit.ly/1aqjmEJ
#MyInternetIs a free library on all the information I was never taught in schools. http://bit.ly/1aqjmEJ
#MyInternetIs is the way I practice my 1st amendment rights. I won’t allow the FCC to influence my voice! http://bit.ly/1aqjmEJ
#MyInternetIs my safe space where I determine what’s “high-demand”. I don’t prioritize aspects of my identity! http://bit.ly/1aqjmEJ
Confused about Net Neutrality? The “Save the Internet Campaign” summarizes it like this:


What Is Net Neutrality?
Net Neutrality is the fundamental principle that ensures you can read, watch or download whatever you want — and it’s not up to a phone or cable company to decide which websites will work.


Why Is Net Neutrality So Important?
Net Neutrality has made the Internet an unrivaled environment for free speech, civic participation, innovation, opportunity, press freedom and much more. It prevents online discrimination and gives any individual, organization or company the same chance to share their ideas and find an audience.


How Is Net Neutrality at Risk?
The FCC’s proposal would let a handful of giant Internet companies become the gatekeepers of everything we do, say and see online. If the FCC’s rules go into effect, Internet service providers will be allowed to favor their own content and charge extra fees to others for VIP treatment. This would create a two-tiered Internet with express lanes for the few who can afford the tolls — and winding dirt roads for the rest of us.


What Can We Do About It?
To ensure decision-makers hear from millions of Internet users and not just a few big companies, Free Press is mounting an all-out campaign to organize public support for Net Neutrality. If we succeed, the open Internet will continue to thrive as a space shared and shaped by its millions of users.

Synonyms are weird because if you invite someone to your cottage in the forest that just sounds nice and cozy, but if I invite you to my cabin in the woods you’re going to die.
