Javon Johnson - “cuz he’s black” (NPS 2013)

"It’s not about whether or not the shooter is racist. It’s about how poor black boys are treated as problems well before we are treated as people."

I’ve seen the GIF set of this video floating around and thought maybe folks should see the entire video.

  • As a side note, white privilege allows me to turn off my TV or log off of social media whenever this stuff gets too real for me to handle, but the people of Ferguson can’t change the channel. The people in North Philly can’t just turn it off. These are real people’s lives, people that matter. Remember that the next time you get the urge to log off Tumblr because the “unpleasantness” of the world is getting a little “too real”. - Frank D (aka adignorantium)

Georgia sex offenders, murderers get gun rights back

(Atlanta Journal-Constitution) William Alvin Bishop paid for his crime – aggravated child molestation – with nine years in prison. But when he got out, he still wasn’t free.

Because he is on Georgia’s sex offender registry, Bishop must notify his local sheriff of any change of address, which then is posted online with his photograph. He cannot live or work within 1,000 feet of a school, a church, a day-care center – any place where, in the expansive language of the state’s sex offender law, “minors congregate.”

He may, however, own a gun.

He may, however, own a gun. 

"…despite the serious nature of his crime and his documented threat of additional violence. He is among a growing number of violent offenders who have received pardons that restore gun rights in recent years – and one of the seven from the sex offender registry.” (source)

Adult Swim: “Film Piracy Feeds Babies”

"A recent report claims film piracy costs the economy $20 billion annually. We say this is super misleading. Film piracy may cost the ‘film industry’ 20 billion but that money still goes into the economy. People will buy shoes or comic books or cataract surgery or even baby formula instead of spending that money on movie tickets. We say film piracy feeds babies."

Abuse of boy whose mother called gay described in graphic testimony – LGBTQ Nation

mysocalled-gay-life:

People wonder why I am so outspoken about LGBT rights. People say, “it’s 2014! Everything’s fine!” No. Not it is not fine. Stories like this are not unique. You think because we are a westernized country there is less violence towards LGBTQ people. That’s simply not true. I’m so saddened to see how this poor child of God was treated. May he rest in peace and true love in the afterlife.

This sickens me!
