Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.

“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”

I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter  NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report pictures.”

I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger

Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?

i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.

This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.

How can people be so insensitive? How is this funny? I am not on Twitter - it just sounds way too intrusive for my likings, & the more I read about the people on Twitter the more I realise there is something horribly wrong with the way a lot of people have been brought up - as if they have had no one to guide them, teach them what you would think is common sense & decency - inherent in all of us - well, obviously not. Their mothers sure bought them up all wrong if they think that’s ok. Sad

Jada is a brave young woman, & she’ll rise above all of this - power to her.

Bismuth

Bi - 1.CA.05(Strunz) 
(from Germany, grown lab)

Here we have some Native bismuth ‘crystals’. They form as a ‘hopper’ type of crystal network. They have a bright metallic luster and show a beautiful iridescent rainbow play of colors. Bismuth is the last element to decay in the universe. The average life of an estimated 20 trillion years. It is equally rare in the crust than gold.

This Drug Kills 1 in 10 Americans, and It's Totally Legal

What is it? Alcohol.

If you, like the thousands of Americans this past July 4th weekend, regularly consume alcohol, you’re susceptible to much worse than just high-risk behavior and embarrassing Instagram photos. 

Alcohol is responsible for 1 in 10 adult American deaths, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC). From 2006 to 2010, alcohol, the nation’s most readily available and legal drug, was one of the leading causes of premature American deaths.

Mental meanderings

Anonymous said: Hi :) Can you tell me what the difference is between atheism and agnosticism? I've looked up both definitions but I'm not sure I understand the difference

iranianatheist:

Being an atheist means you deny the existence of God or Gods due to the lack of evidence. An agnostic, however, does not do that, an agnostic is unsure, undetermined, or for lack of better terms just says, I don’t know. You can be an agnostic and still be Muslim or Christian. I know a fair number of people who say they are Muslim but they feel agnostic. You could also be an agnostic atheist, that is to say you consider yourself and atheist but you are not saying with 100% certainty that you are right, that’s my case, while I deny the God of Abraham, and the fairy tales of the Torah, Bible, and the Quran, I do not say I am 100% certain there is no higher power, there could be, but that does not concern me as far as going about enjoying my life.

Perfect explanation

"If online feminism wasn’t important, young men wouldn’t have spent months trying to dismantle it via “deep cover,” and if Asian and black women weren’t important, these young men wouldn’t have pretended to be them. There is something absurdly triumphant (to me, a feminist) in knowing a group of white Western men spent months online pretending to be members of one of the most marginalized groups in Western society. Why? Because online feminism makes them mad? A movement that was started decades ago is simply being proven more pertinent than ever."
