“My children are terrified,” says his mother Umm Jihad, 37.
“My son Mohammed refuses to eat. He follows me everywhere because he’s so scared and asks me every 10 minutes when we’re going to die.
“He says he won’t go back to school because he’s scared he’ll be martyred or that he’ll come back from school and find that I or his brothers have been killed,” she says.

Take A Bow - Madonna
I’ve always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you’ve always known it’s true (you know it’s true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
The REIGNING QUEEN of this bullshit: Miss Jennifer Williams!!!! She wakes up every morning and “puts them eyes in.” SMH Bet this chick’s got 20/10 vision, but still makes sure to drive by the gas station on her way home just to pick up these nasty ass faux hazel 2-for-1 contacts.
Today, Sweden got put on the map with a viral-ready, documented display of obvious racism and obliviousness.“A macabre scene with racist undertones took place on Saturday when Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth attended a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural…
I always laugh when people claim such states to be progressive. I’m like, “progressive? They probably haven’t come into much contact with many Africans or something/someone different, so they’re ignorance has not yet been tested or questioned or, often times, even realized.”
Sadly, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth - the Swedish minister of culture - should actually have already had her ignorance tested long ago. Like, what was the requirement for that job? She is, after all, the minister of culture, so we’d all assume that to mean international, varying cultures. Now she will deal with very public condemnation. Hopefully it’s a lesson learned.
Selena Quintanilla-Perez Memorabilia
Random tidbit: Selena would make her own bustier’s. She would take bra’s she liked and hand sew on crystals & beads.
bustiers* and bras*. why do SO many people struggle so severely with understanding the difference between contraction, plural and possessive “s”?!?!
anyway, yes to the memorabilia. Me encanta Selena.
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.
God bless her for continuing on as long as she had. I can’t even imagine the amount of trauma, pain, and grief her ordeal must have caused her on a daily basis. That she soldiered on for as long as she did is a testament to what a strong individual she was.
May her tortured soul finally have found peace.
Do you see this pictures?
That’s what Joseph Kony is doing. Well, not really him. The Lord’s Resistance Army, or LRA.
The LRA is composed of tens of thousands of abducted children.
Kony makes them mutilate people’s faces and shoot their own parents.
The girls are turned into sex slaves.
Obviously, what Kony is doing is not right.
Kony is invisible.
But this is the year he gets captured.
I’m not expecting this to get 20k notes.
But I do hope that this informs at least one person of the injustice going on in this world.
Horrific. Make it stop by reblogging and raising AWARENESS!
“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…
As my bestie artfully put it: “how do you run right back into the arms that beat the shyt out of you?!”
Damn… I simply do not know. Meanwhile, the chick is tweetin’ such ludicrousness as:
And in “Twitter Files”, as Bossip puts it:
Twitter Files: RihRih Goes OFF On Fan After She Brings Up Her Ex-Boo (Maybe Current) Thang Chris Brown … “He Beat Your Face Off!”
And when you see how she’s gone in, it’s like…
Wooooweee! This chick done LOST it over some D… smh.
Just another day in Hollyweird, folks!
