Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

  • What they say to kids who want pets: Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?
  • What they say to adults who DON'T want kids: Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!

Good things are happening, and I’m really excited. But a part of me is too busy worrying about it all falling apart. I need to learn to be more positive.

Wal-mart is built on exploiting workers. The workers’ wages are supplemented by government programs. 

The Walton family are multi-billionaires based on YOU subsidizing their workers.

Big government exists because big businesses refuse to perform ethically.

I go through awful phases where either I hate being around people or I feel profoundly sad because it seems like no one wants to be around me.

What a whirlwind of all the emotions. Today was a little surreal.

Anonymous asked: Question about the Micheal Brown riots: Where are all the 2nd Amendment lovers, the Libertarians who decry a creeping fascist state, the people who stood with Cliven Bundy just a while ago? Why aren't they here protesting against the police shooting, brutality, and how they're attacking Ferguson's black citi...I just answered my own question didn't I?

deadpresidents:

Exactly.

It is quite a wake-up call when racism and classism is so noticeably apparent, isn’t it? Most people know it exists, but if they haven’t been victims of it, it’s difficult for them to relate or understand the extent of racism and classism. Well, for those who think that the United States is post-racial or that income inequality is a political talking point rather than a reality, the past week should have opened their eyes to what happens on the streets of nearly every major American city every day. It’s a shame that it takes something like this to confirm to a large segment of the American population what many of us have been saying and living for years.

"If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been “fuck off” because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we? And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence to say, “No, fuck off, leave me alone, thank you very much.”"
