Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”

Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking.  He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.  

Ack.  I was just so pleased that they included that line.

yeah the import of that really struck me the second time I watched the movie.

The driving while black bit was one of my favorite parts.

Yeah, this really struck me the second time when I wasn’t just sitting there terrified his car would blow up at any moment. It really makes you think of all the shit he had to go through to get where he is today and still the police give him the side eye when he drives up in an expensive car. Also, obviously we find out later they’re HYDRA agents but the car chase scene is literally a bunch of white guys in police uniforms shooting at a single black man and it’s an image we’ve seen a million times (on the news, in the movies, even on Agents of Shield with Mike Peterson) only this time the police are the bad guys and we’re rooting for Nick. I just thought, especially in the context of scene preceding it where it’s made clear that Nick’s had to deal with racism and profiling that it was a interesting choice to make HYDRA the police.

This post is golden and I thought the same thing as well.

Until you find out that the police were HYDRA, you really thought it was a situation where they were eying Fury suspiciously because it was a black man driving a nice SUV in Washington D.C. aka the ‘driving while black’ issue.

And you aren’t made to feel like you’re paranoid because he thought that too.

Shit happens so many times it’s ridiculous and that was a great scene because it reminds you that racial profiling of black men/people still exists no matter how much money or power the black person in question has.

Nick Fury knows where he stands both inside and outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he knows his Level 10 clearance does nothing for him when he’s driving next to DC police. And a black dude running from a bunch of white “cops” in an expensive looking car? Yea no, as if any random person on the street would see that and think Fury was in the right in that situation. Genius move on HYDRA’s/Pierce’s part.

Really glad they slid that in there.

I was sitting on my friends bed with her when she came out as gay

and I was looking through a Chinese food pamphlet

so I put it down, looked at her and said “I was going to suggest ordering food but I see now you’d prefer to eat out”

and I don’t think she’s ever really forgave me

AU: Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak are two of the biggest movie stars on the planet and they’ve been secretly dating for the better part of two years. When Dean’s public girlfriend, upcoming indie actress Jo Harvelle, ‘breaks up’ with him to start dating Charlie Bradbury coincides with him landing the role of a lifetime opposite Cas, that whole “secretly dating” thing? Yeah, that’s shot to hell.

The kicker? There’s some leaked pictures of the two of them having sex on set, never-ending questions on the press tour for their movie and even with all of that, it’s an accidental slip-up during a panel with fans that kills them.

(Dean swears he didn’t mean to answer that girl’s question with “well when you’ve been with someone for as long as we have” but Cas is just glad he said it at all.)
