[…]”And on Sept. 29, in front of Hong Kong government headquarters, a remarkable scene took place. A young protester standing near a riot policeman was attacked, apparently unprovoked, with a bolt of pepper spray across the face and in the eyes. He screamed out “We are unarmed, how can you attack us like that?”
Behind the helmet and face mask, the policeman’s expression could not be seen, but he seemed moved and said “I know, I know.” He beckoned the man over, turned around and retrieved his own water bottle, and proceeded to wash out the man’s stinging eyes. Hong Kong Policemen Apologize
"The police officers that have been called upon to be Hong Kong’s shock troops—firing and tossing tear gas canisters into crowds of protesting students, and soaking them with pepper spray—have come forward recently to express their frustration and regret.
Tens of thousands of students continue to ambulate through Hong Kong’s central business district each night, as police attempt to contain and repel them. The students are protesting recent moves by Beijing to limit Hong Kong’s ability to hold independent elections.
“Once, I felt I was the luckiest person in the world, because I could fulfill two of my childhood dreams at the same time,” wrote Arnold Wai, a member of Hong Kong’s auxiliary police force, on Facebook, on the evening of Sept. 28. “Before, I was very proud when I personally brought criminals to justice,” he said.
“However, I just phoned my superior tonight, quitting this job. I don’t want to be a political tool for someone,” he wrote, in a post on Facebook that was widely shared among Hong Kong Internet users.”

White people:We don't want any black people in our clubs, bars, parties, restaurants, schools, government, banks, neighborhoods, or offices
Black people:Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else.
White people:......
White people:Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?

     “When I was younger, I didn’t notice the gender inequalities in this country, so I sort of went along with the grain. As I grew older, though, I realized that we’re not as advanced as we think we are—there’s still a lot of room for improvement. I’ve become a strong feminist in recent years. I think it’s important not to be ashamed in saying, ‘Look: this is wrong, we should fix it, and I can do something about it’. And I think it’s something that affects everyone, not just women. I married a man who is a feminist because he knows that it’s an important fight. He’s a good example of how men can also be feminists. It doesn’t make you less of a man to stand up for women—it makes you more of a man.”

do action movies know they can have more than one female character

Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions. 

This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.
