two sides of the same GAAAAAAAAAY
Laura & Philippa are two twenty-something ladies desperately in love with a lot of things, but mostly each other. Hailing from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean (Florida and England, respectively), they also go by the Prat and the Idiot, and aspire to one day living on the same continent. ♥

Anthony Mackie, in an interview with Interview Magazine
The rest of the interview focuses more on Mackie’s role as Tupac Shakur in the upcoming Notorious, but his comments on Jesse Owens are spot-on. You can learn more about Owens and why he’s so important at the website run by the Jesse Owens Trust.
(We know more about white criminals than black heroes.)
I would love to be a superhero.-Anthony Mackie
