his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.
My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”
This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!
The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.
This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.
This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!
its 20 fucking 14 can we stop pretending that online activism and general awareness campaigns “dont do anything” before i got on tumblr i was a racist sexist anti-feminist piece of garbage whos greatest understanding of any social issue was discrimination against white gay men and that trans people were “men trapped in womens bodies”
obviously something fucking right is going on so why dont you stop being pessimistic little shits.
I am not okay with the lack of continuity for Goofy’s real name
I don’t know what I was expecting, but this is bullshit.
I AM NOT OKAY WITH THE LACK OF CONTINUITY
goofy changes his name ever few years for the purpose of tax evasion, he has been dodging the government for well over half a century and owes hardworking american citizens hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes
sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else

Reblog the fuck out of this
I gotta stop this for a minute. Guns would not have stopped the motherfucking Nazis.
Actually many resistance groups - particularly the French and Polish tried to use guns and the Nazis fucked shit up — particularly with the Polish. The Nazis literally raised a ghetto because the Jews had guns in Warsaw.
The Nazi party came to power as the result of a combination of economic suffering, political promises and a restless German people. The whole “Kill the Jews” thing was NOT their leading line. In fact, most Germans voted for the Nazis because of their economic reform plans — which worked. After some time in power the Nazis SLOWLY began to create those policies that lead to the suffering of the Jews. But no one stood up. To stop the Nazis early on the Germans would not have needed guns, they just had to vote them out of office.
But we all know what happened… nationalistic government oversaw by a crazy dude = holocaust.
Now, back to the issue of guns. Lets say the Jews and other groups did arm themselves with guns. The Nazis had tanks. Panzer tanks that rolled over villages like they were nothing. They also had the Luftwaffe (airforce) which raised entire villages. The German military at the beginning of WWII was unstoppable. Their Blitzkrieg strategy fucked everyone in Europe up — even the Russians (thank god for snow and being a large country because Russia was falling apart with the initial attack - Operation Barbarossa).
You could have armed a whole village and the Nazis would have laughed before just bombing the damn place saving them the trouble of shipping people out to a camp.
I’m not saying victims of the Nazis were a bunch of sheep or weaklings — but going up against an organized government with military training and equipment = death.
You can’t go all Hollywood, being the one rebel with a shot gun that takes down the government - they got better guns and don’t care about using them.
TL;DR - Guns would have been a joke to the Nazis who had Panzer tanks, the Luftwaffe and a powerful Blitzkrieg attack strategy, along with a complacent public that didn’t give a damn about people being systematically killed. Arming the Jews, Rroma, gays and other groups would not have prevented the Holocaust.
It may have actually made it worse. People were put in camps and although millions perished during the holocaust, some survived the camps. If they just bombed entire villages and towns to avoid any sort of violent resistance, there would have been no survivors.
Also that could have easily been spun as propaganda (ex: how Palestine resistance is being equated with the power of the Israeli army). Many other countries who came to the aid of the jews did so because they saw them as defenseless and unable to protect themselves from a government/military that was attacking them for no reason. If they used violent resistance, some groups may have been less likely to see it that way. It may have been seen as caused by fighting on both sides.
Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.
The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.
I read about this earlier. The parents had to prove they were native and even after that the principal still asked the mom if she could tuck his hair in his shirt. The school also has a ban on locs. Basically shaming young children of color into being ashamed of who they are at an early age. But the best part is the schools “mascot” is the “Indians” if that ain’t white bullshit at its finest idk what is.
