    My avocado baby sprouted!!!!! I am so excited for it!!! This time I tried a different sprouting method than usual (toothpicks suspended over water) because I felt artistic and it worked out beautifully! I filled a vase with rocks ($2 from Ikea or free if you’re willing to look) and filled that with water and placed the seed in an indentation on the rocks and then put it next to the sink so I could fill up the water if need be and look at the seed progress to sprout! :) yay!!!!

    Three Police Guns and a Baby, By Cindy Gomez-Schempp

    On July 25, 2014, 13 Fargo, ND police officers were dispatched to arrest one 15 year old girl. She claimed Fargo police used excessive force. Officers said they smelled marijuana. She reportedly told officers she was retrieving her sister’s phone and charger from the car but was still dragged her from the car, had her head beat on the hood of a car, and was handcuffed and hogtied causing excruciating pain to her arms, wrists and ankles. (See original story here)

    A week and a half later, the 15 year old’s mom went to the police department with her lawyer to request a complaint form from the Fargo Police concerning the brutal arrest of her innocent 15 year old daughter. The day after she met with the Fargo Police Department’s Office of Professional Standards, her car was pulled over by an unmarked police vehicle. She was ready to record because she had been reporting repeated harassment from police toward her family members, especially those who witnessed and reported on her daughter’s arrest.

    3 Police Guns and a Baby While giving her friend a ride, she was boxed in and detained by a hoard of police cars during a traffic stop on the vehicle ahead of her (which her passenger’s daughter and boyfriend were traveling in). During the stop officers drew their guns at unarmed occupants including a three year old toddler. A recent Nation article cited what every U.S. Marine knows: That you never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot. Neither the Ferguson nor the Fargo police have been advised of this important distinction.

    The disturbing encounter for this embattled Fargo mother, included three guns pulled on the scene against unarmed travelers; one of them a three year old child. The person they arrested did not resist arrest, made his hands visible, and did not pose any visible threat to officers. The mother of the 15 year old recently reporting excessive force claims that she is now being subjected to constant surveillance and harassment as a result of exposing police misconduct to media. The unmarked police vehicle that detained both cars had been sitting outside her home “all day”, and she suspected it as a surveillance vehicle once she left the mobile home park where she lives and noticed it was following her.

So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

"OH MY GOD! THE CAR IS DAMAGED! YOU POOR CAR!"

    So my first kombucha endeavor was kinda eh- I successfully made vinegar! So I mixed with some water and turmeric, cinnamon and stevia for this pretty tasty tonic of health! Turmeric is a potent anti cancer compound as well as anti inflammatory! Stevia is good for your teeth, kills cavity causing bacteria and is sweet! Cinnamon helps to slow glucose release into your blood stream as well! Kombucha is fully of nutritious probiotics and since mine is very vinegary, this is the perfect morning time drink instead of lemon and water. :) hopefully batch 2 will be more fizzy and bucha-like but either way… :)

    Fired black editor of People sues magazine over alleged discrimination against African-Americans →

    nappysupastar:

    angrywocunited:

    Maybe they should call it White People magazine.

    The recently axed lone black editor of People says she was discriminated against by her boss, and that the popular magazine is biased against African-Americans in general.

    People is “a discriminatory organization run entirely by white people who intentionally focus the magazine on stories involving white people and white celebrities,” Tatsha Robertson’s bombshell lawsuit says.

    The 48-year-old Robertson, “the only Black Senior Editor the magazine has ever had,” was laid off in May, according to the suit.

    She says only five of the mag’s 110 employees were black, and that now-former executive editor Betsy Gleick treated her like a second class-citizen when she came to the magazine from another Time Inc. publication, Essence, in 2010.

    "You need to talk like everyone else here. You’re not at Essence anymore," Gleick is quoted in the suit as saying.

    She says Gleick left her out of important meetings, and denigrated her attempts to do more stories on black people. Robertson said when she pitched a story about an African-American model who’d been killed, Gleick told her the victim looked like a “slut” and the magazine wasn’t interested.

    “You know the rule — white suburban women in distress,” she said, according to the suit. She also allegedly said the magazine was only interested in stories involving “white, middle-class suburbia.”

    Gleick, 51, followed Robertson out the door in June.

    She did not return a call for comment Wednesday.

    A spokesperson for People said, “People declines to comment.”

    When the magazine does put black people on its cover, they’re held to a different standard, the suit says. Although People “put Trayvon Martin on its cover, Ms. Gleick was completely obsessed with attempting to unearth any potential negative fact about him before doing so,” the suit says. “Ms. Gleick repeatedly questioned whether he was a ‘good kid,’ yet never made efforts to vet white victims of crime.”

    Cover stories on African-Americans were a rarity — the suit says a “black individual was the main feature” on the cover “exactly twice” in 2013, when the magazine put out 60 issues.

    "In total since 2010, only 14 out of 265 covers have been focused on African-American individuals," the suit says.

    And since 1990, “only three individuals selected as the ‘Most Beautiful Person’ have been black, out of 25 selections.”

    Robertson’s lawyer, David Gottlieb of Wigdor LLP, said, “The media has a responsibility to report and act with integrity. People Magazine has betrayed that responsibility by engaging in discrimination, both in its pages and through its employment practices.”

    The suit says that with Robertson gone, “One can only imagine that it will be ‘business as usual’ at People Magazine going forward — more white people on covers, more stories about white people, and a completely dismissive attitude towards African-American employees.”

    The suit seeks unspecified money damages from People, Time Inc. and Gleick.

    This is nothing new

    What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

    SD Police Say Tazing 8-Year-Old Native Girl Was Justified, Family Sues →

    gravediggs:

    The Chief of Police justifies the use of a tazer on an 8 year old girl by saying they could have used their guns or batons, essentially. What restraint.

    Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes

    ((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun.  Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))

    thank you, history side of tumblr.

    He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.

    Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.

    Thank you medical side of tumblr

    Roll up positivity and happiness like a katamari roll set to your expiration on this earth plane! No one said it will be easy to navigate around the negative nasty stuff and no one said a lifetime of rolling the katamari is enough, but if you try you can get pretty good at it and at the end, you will have the kind of collection of dreams and love that only you could have imagined. :)

    1lg-prvbs3-5-6 asked: Hey, is there anything you want your followers to pray for?


    Answer:

    youngblackandvegan:

    Sure. Pray for peace on this wretched earth because all over the world it’s a mess. Pray for the leaders of this country make decisions not just for politics, but for the public they were elected to serve. Pray for the suffering and hopeless, that they may find peace as well. And then if you have a free second, pray for all the students that are approaching a new school year, that they may find peace in the chaos of school work so they can be successfulso they can join those in positions of power and influence to make this world a better place
