*Unarmed Black person gets killed by police*
“It’s not about race they had to have done something to deserve it.”

*Black person gets a job or goes to a college*
“This is obviously about race there is nothing they could have done to deserve it.”

further news: Judge blocks release of city report on McDade shooting. Pasadena Police Officers’ Association asked for the report to be blocked. Their attorney, Richard Shinee, wrote an email to the consultants who wrote the report, the city attorney’s office, & the Pasadena police department: “I am told, but have not been able to confirm, that you link these police officers’ names to their discipline history and reference prior internal affairs investigations that involve them.” Shinee went on to write that the release of the report would violate “the police officers’ rights to privacy …”

(because why would it be relevant that these murdering assholes have a history of discipline issues and prior internal affairs investigations??? multiple IA investigations, followed by executing an unarmed kid & lying about it…but their right to privacy supersedes the public’s right to have police officers who aren’t murderous lying criminals with a documented history of shady bullshit.)

Football Player Flaunts Sexual Orientation On Live Television (x)
AJ McCarron didn’t seem to care that television cameras were on him when he decided to flaunt his heterosexual relationship with Katherine Webb.


“All of a sudden they were making out,” said ESPN viewer Roger Jellyton. “I couldn’t believe my eyes, and my children were in the room. How was I supposed to explain what they were seeing? What, that it’s OK for two people who love each other to kiss in a moment of joy and celebration? Ugh. What is this nation coming to? Enough is enough.”

Once you first start noticing how often men will interrupt or talk over you if you’re a woman you can’t ever stop like every time i have a conversation with a man or participate in a class discussion i notice it and it’s honestly my biggest irritant

notice it and stop it. don’t let them talk over you. if they start, do not stop what you are saying and look them straight in the eye until they do. it should not be tolerated

"Daya is a hopeless romantic and she believes in love. That’s something that we share. She doesn’t hold grudges, she forgives very easily, and I think I do the same. When people see the character and then get to know me, they say ‘Oh, you’re so different’, but we are very similar in that way. Also, with her image, she has a little insecurity and a inner struggle that I’m working on currently."

Worse than Ebola

By now, the top false-color micrograph should be frighteningly familiar. It’s the Ebola virus, fear of which spreads faster than the actual pathogen. Below is something far more deadly – and even more familiar: the flu virus.

While there is not yet a vaccine for Ebola, there is one for the flu – a simple, single shot that almost everyone should get. There’s even a nasal spray version for those afraid of needles.

But millions of Americans each year do not get vaccinated. One reason is lethargy. Another is ignorance. Many myths surround the flu vaccine. National Public Radio recently cited 32.

Here’s myth No. 1: You should fear Ebola more than the flu.

Fact: The flu kills more people in a year in the United States than Ebola has killed in the history of the world.

Go get vaccinated.
