Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.

smh….

officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
they were literally trying to kill her. this is a little girl. what the fuck.

Even better:After hung jury, girl won’t be retried in police assault case (2009)http://m.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/After-hung-jury-girl-won-t-be-retried-in-police-1601070.php
"Five of the six jurors refused to vote to convict Milburn of felony assault, said defense attorney Anthony Griffin and Assistant District Attorney Veronique Cantrell-Avloes.
An earlier attempt to try the case also ended in a mistrial after a witness made an improper statement in front of the jury.”
They tried to beat a young girl’s head in, and then charged her with felony assault on one of the officers. And there was at least one asshole juror who wanted to convict her at a retrial.

This and the terrible Daniele Watts incident with the LAPD this weekend are just two of many, many examples of how black women’s bodies are aggressively sexualized. BTW, in that article, it says police were looking for three WHITE prostitutes who had been reported in the area. Once again, police brutality is justified even though their victim didn’t fit the profile they were looking for.
The officers - Gilbert Gomez, David Roark, and Sean Stewart — were in plainclothes and got out of an unmarked car and told her she was under arrest, and then made her go to trial twice for charges of “assaulting an officer” and “resisting arrest” when she didn’t eagerly jump into a car full of strange men. They beat her so severely she had to be hospitalized, and then they claimed her injuries were from the tree she was holding on to to prevent them from dragging her out of her own front yard.

HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

(photo from livesandliesofwizards, which was the first thing I thought of when I ran into this passage while rereading the Harry Potter books)

(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)

Its was french. It s
Was so clearly french.

Literally French. …….

….
.

Because French Muslims do not exist and no Muslims ever speak French and Muslim schools don’t exist in France and if they do they must be really shitty and there are no key Muslim educators in France at all and there’s never been any history of Islamic culture and politics in the Pottermore-confirmed Pyreenes, nooooooo, it is très impossible! Astagfirrulah!

except…NO.

learn some fuckin’ social studies and history and current affairs, people.

if you even remotely agree with this photo then get out 

so like… do people even know that these are actual people from Hong Kong who (in the majority) preferred democratic rule and that the things that China is doing to them now are atrocities, or am i missing something? like this post mentions nothing of the history of Hong Kong or the corrupt nature of communism in China - not to damper communism, i love communism, but man, if people don’t want it, don’t force it on them. again, these are actual people from Hong Kong - the fact that they preferred to unite under the flag of a horrid imperial power over the flag of their surrounding country probably says a lot.
that said, this could easily be hearsay, and if so, could someone please enlighten me to what i’m missing? i am legitimately confused about tumblr right now

they probably think these are white people or something. or are dumb

it concerns me because whoever originally posted this image without context is misleading people from knowing what’s actually happening, and this shit is whack yo

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
