WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!
I think we know why.
This made Atlanta news because it happened not far from where I live. It was only a few months after Sandy Hook and I just remember crying from relief when I heard about this woman and how she managed to prevent another tragedy through compassion and empathy.
She is everything.
In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.
THIS IS THE SHIT
Watch the video. This actually angers me. They call for the end of racism through racism. In being racist, they are perpetuating the racist culture. We need acceptance and equality, not a blame game of he said she said. Two wrong don’t make a right. How many cliches do I need to pull out before this gets across. White people as a stereotypical whole, are racist. Black people as a stereotypical whole ARE racist. Quit.
^ lol white logic
His name is Rayshawn. He ran away to NYC and is believed to be somewhere in Manhattan (i know, it’s huge). We haven’t seen him in over 2 weeks and have no way of contacting him. I’m very worried about his well being. He skateboards so he might be riding around on one. Idk. I just really need to talk to him or at least know that he’s okay.
I don’t really have any good pics but here are two
I’d appreciate it if you reblogged this and spread the word.
The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.

note to critics of the world: When you’re talking to African-American women, don’t use the tired “angry black woman” stereotype.
New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley, whose journalism career includes a laundry list of inaccuracies and errors, published a disgusting assessment of how Rhimes and her hit ABC series Scandal have changed the television landscape for black women.
"When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography," Stanley begins, "it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman."

The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another."Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death."They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death."I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half."I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.
