Mike Brown was murdered 64 days ago
This is something school lessons really downplay.
I legit thought it only lasted a week or two and was shocked when I learned otherwise.
Because to acknowledge the length of the protests/boycotts is to suggest that the United Stated resisted the right thing. They like to pretend like the country just didnt know what it was doing and only had to be tapped gently on the shoulder before it changed everything. They don’t want people to know that the country clung to its racism for almost a decade after the movement really started. Hell, they act like rosa parks, the million man march and the civil rights act all happened in one year or less. It didnt.

dude at the breakfast thing here was staring me DOWN like not even in an oh they’re cute thing like in an extremely uncomfortable don’t look away when they notice just smile in a cocky way thing like please STOP
really annoyed rn that the shitty and mean spouse in every movie with het spouses that are antagonistic is always the woman
I hate it when men make unsolicited comments about a woman’s body. Like “she’s got a nice shape but she needs to tighten up her stomach”
How about you tighten up your lips and never speak again you ignorant shit.
Wow maybe you need to accept constructive criticism jesus christ.
Men telling me (or any other woman) what I need to do for them to find me sexually attractive is not constructive criticism.
Today on the MBTA, someone called 911 over a lady puking on the subway, claiming she was from Liberia and had Ebola. After they had stopped train service on the Orange line, and escorted her away with a horde of cops and medical responders, it was finally established that she was actually of Haitian descent.
The Ebola epidemic is going to spin off into full-on hypochondriac racism really fast, mark my words.
Someone at the Wisconsin Humane Society is really good at naming cats.

The situation in Venezuela keeps getting worse, and the world doesn’t know.
Those protesting do not represent Venezuela’s vast working class majority that struggled to overcome the oppressive exclusion they were subjected to during administrations before Chavez. The youth taking to the streets today in Caracas and other cities throughout the country, hiding their faces behind masks and balaclavas, destroying public buildings, vehicles, burning garbage, violently blocking transit and throwing rocks and molotov cocktails at security forces are being driven by extremist right-wing interests from Venezuela’s wealthiest sector. Led by hardline neoconservatives, Leopoldo Lopez, Henrique Capriles and Maria Corina Machado – who come from three of the wealthiest families in Venezuela, the 1% of the 1% – the protesters seek not to revindicate their basic fundamental rights, or gain access to free healthcare or education, all of which are guaranteed by the state, thanks to Chavez, but rather are attempting to spiral the country into a state of ungovernability that would justify an international intervention leading to regime change.
They failed the last time. Make sure they fail again.
My friend is pretty unfortunate how much information you’re overlooking, let me tell you from my view of point, in which i face too these problems, because I’m living here.
The protests are still going, people from all ages are protesting due to the poor lifestyle that’s being promoted in this country.
We can’t go out without the fear of being killed in the streets, just a few weeks someone got shot in the forehead a few minutes from walking here in my house, the dead body laid there for hours, my mom passed by the dead body coincidentally.
I myself have been victim of insecurity countless times, out of them I have been physically assaulted 3 times, in 1 I got mugged from my bag which had nothing of value, they shoved me against a wall with a knife in my stomach. I know people that have been kidnapped. Everyone I know has been assaulted at least more than 3 times not in their lifetime, but in a year.
We can’t go just at night in most parts because that’s considered suicide here. And I love walking out at night, sadly that’s not something you’re supposed to be doing unless you want a few bullets inside your body.
We have one of the highest murder rates in the entire world, currently sitting at 3rd and rising. And it’s thanks to the death of Monica Spears that people started reclaiming their security, Monica was a beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss Venezuela 2004 and also represented Venezuela at Miss Universe 2005, who got shot several times in her car with her husband and their 5 year old daughter. The only survivor was the 5 year old with a few bullet injuries.
What-not, with the scarce amount of basic food and other basic needs such as oil, flour, water, toilet paper, and a pretty big lists of products that are almost extinct.
Everyday when I walk to my institute, I look at the supermarket chain near my home, and there’s always an absurd long line to get in, even when it hasn’t opened, lines stretches sometimes to other blocks. I myself have been in those lines just to get a bag of cooking oil, we get marked by numbers like animals, so no one cuts in. There’s videos of people beating each other up to grab a bag of flour, an old man had an asthma attack while in line to buy a few things and no one helped him because the line was ridiculously long and they were afraid to wait another 3+ hours to get basic foods.
My dad is struggling to get money thanks to companies leaving the dust, I admire strongly the man and he works hard to still provide me and my brother with food, he currently works a taxi driver, which gives way more money than any minimum wage job and most professional jobs.
So why do these people protest? or an even better question, why don’t more people protest?
A large part of our humble population lives off Chavez’s legacy, most of them are too afraid to demand a better lifestyle, they’re so afraid that if another political side that’s not chavist were to being in power, they’d take the little they have.
But things are getting worst, there are no signs of recovery but instead we’re having a backwards pace, every day life gets more expensive, more people are getting poor and it’s touching rock bottom these last 7 months since the protests began (and are still happening in various parts of the country).
IF YOU NEED MORE RESOURCES AND WANT TO KNOW HOW BAD IN DEEP SHIT WE’RE IN AND EXPOSE THE HUGE AMOUNT OF VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, CORRUPTION, INDOCTRINATION, I’D RECOMMEND TO LOOK INTO THIS POST. MAKE SURE TO READ IT. THIS NEEDS TO GO INTO THE SURFACE.
something is seriously wrong with these icons like
the designs make 0 sense they are not indicative of their function (with the exception of text, link and video)
the icons for link and chat are virtually identical
the icon for text is noticeably smaller looking and feels off-centered compared to the other icons
did tumblr do this as a joke? did someone make a mistake? i’m genuinely curious because these icons are incredibly ineffective and poorly designed
They changed them back in less than 10 minutes but please let this post live forever as a testament to the staff’s poor decision.
this entire site lives as testament to the staff’s poor decision
October is Domestic Violence Awareness and Support Month!
If you have ever experienced your partner hiding your birthcontrol, demanding you no longer take birthcontrol, discuss or attempting to impregnate you against your will or without your knowledge you are not alone. This is not a rarity. But it also is not your fault and you do not deserve how your partner is treating you.
Please click the link for more information.
You can go to planned parenthood for birth control your partner wouldn’t have to know about.
If you live in Canada, it is also very illegal and constitutes rape or aggravated sexual assault. You can file charges.
