Do NOT let the federal government take away snake owners’ rights!
Tongue Penetration Festival at Bode near Kathmandu (April 14, 2012)
A Guangzhou woman contemplating divorce attempted to give away her baby on second-hand-goods website, according to a Sina News article.
The mother, age 30, said that she was not ready to raise a child alone. She reportedly listed her 2-month-old baby boy as a “99 percent new” item, 100 percent free, and attached the above picture of her child on the site. She still hasn’t found a taker.
FJP: Wait, really?
Take me off this planet.
Kumar Rao, a defence lawyer for the Bronx Defenders in New York City, stated that: “Martin’s killing reflects the absolute worst of a national psychosis: The view that Black males - young and old alike - are inherently threatening and unworthy of personal security; and that the state’s commitment to enduring that belief is perpetuated and institutionalised.”
Trayvon Martin’s murder was avoidable, but yet perversely justified through the cold silence of the state.
The slaying of the innocent youth, known as Trayvon Martin, is yet another painful reminder that racism & prejudice are still thriving in America’s society.
I love when people remind me that there no longer are Jim Crow Laws in the South, or that Beyoncé is the only Black woman who’s deemed “acceptable” and sexually sought after in many men’s fantasies because she’s light-skinned (recently, a male friend told me: “I don’t get that Gabrielle Union thing. She too dark…”), or that affirmative action is an example of “reverse racism”. As I see it, so long as Black men continue to get proverbially hosed and literally shot down like stray dogs with no purpose (and often times we provide significantly better protection for animals on the street and in the wild than some people believed to be at the bottom of society’s totem pole); so long as Black beauty & Black women are continually subjected to and perpetuated by racist myths of being deemed ‘exotic’ because she’s dark-skinned (often seen in the runway or in high fashion’s mentality) or acceptable because she’s light-skinned (always found in Hollywood & television), instead of admired in all her many wonderful shades; and so long as “affirmative action”, a privilege overwhelmingly reserved exclusively for whites, continues to pervade our sick, twisted system, instead of providing truly equal access to the best of everything to everybody - regardless of race, ethnicity, color or creed - then I know institutionalized racism is alive & well today.
“She says she’s just waiting to die.
‘I don’t have a future anymore.’”
I read this heartbreaking story earlier this afternoon on Yahoo!, and felt almost as powerless as the victim, Evie. I can’t even begin to imagine living so tortured a life in my own skin: fearing for my life that my true identity could surface, unable to freely come and go about my days as the self I see and yearn to be, and all because who and what I personally identify with goes against a religious and/or cultural status quo. So long as someone is carrying out their civil duties as a positive member of society, then I firmly believe it should not matter how you live your personal life. Do no kill, steal, cheat or otherwise commit any acts of wrongdoing against yourself or others, and the world can go on in relative peace.
Unfortunately, there will always be hate, just as there will always be love - the two are yin and yang. Still, a lot more can be done to eradicate hate, a nasty noun that stems from ignorance. Please make an effort to educate yourself and those around you. We’re all just trying to get by…
This is one of my mom and my all-time favorite SNL skits. Alec Baldwin is a great comedic actor - and I love Pete Schweddy’s Meaty Balls <3
P.S. I love Ben & Jerry’s for their delicious ice-cream (Half Baked, anyone?…) as well as for their ingenious subtext behind their flavor names. I’d probably marry this ice-cream. I love rum-raisin.
When I heard about this, I legitimately thought that it was an off-color Onion article.
This is scary as shit.
A hunting ranch.
Names like Niggerhead were incredibly common. America’s anti-black bias is sewn so deep into the fabric of this country I sometimes think it can never be erased.
LMFAO @ the graphic above… But seriously, this kind of thing leaves me pretty much speechless, even though I’m not surprised whatsoever. As someone above stated, IT’S BEYOND FRIGHTENING THAT THIS PLACE IS A HUNTING GROUND & “FAMILY CAMPING SITE” - JUST TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY - NAMED ‘NIGGERHEAD’. Don’t even wanna know what goes on out there in Perry’s ‘Niggerhead’ estate.
