Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.
Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.
Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.
The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.
So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.
You ever just stop and realise that Chris Brown is allowed to go about his normal life and still get paid shit loads of money to make music and no one seems to have a problem with that?
Why would anyone have a problem with it???? Lmfao
According to a diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks, U.S. troops willfully massacred an Iraqi family in the town of Ishaqi in 2006, handcuffing and then shooting 11 people in the head including a woman in her 70′s and five children ages five and under.
McClatchy is reporting that the soldiers then called in an air strike on the house to cover up evidence of the killings.
This account differs sharply from an official version of the 2006 incident, which indicated that coalition forces captured an al Qaeda in Iraq operative in the house, which was destroyed in a firefight. The WikiLeaks cable, however, corroborates accounts by Ishaqi townspeople and includes questions about the incident by Philip Alston, the U.N.’s special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.
The cable is dated twelve days after the incident, which took place March 15, 2006. In it, Alston says that autopsies performed in Tikrit on bodies pulled from the wreckage of the farmhouse indicated that all of the dead had been handcuffed and shot in the head.
If true, this action, although not as egregious as the My Lai massacre of March 16, 1968, wherein 347-504 unarmed civilians were shot to death by U.S. forces during the Vietnam conflict, still speaks volumes about war and the atrocities committed for war’s sake.

Nearly any other developed country in the world - Bush (and Blair) would be at the International Criminal Court right now.
But hey, I guess ‘democracy’ has it’s perks.
This and many more human rights violations by USA.

Anonymous asked: Zoos actually help animals. They don't use the creatures for show. They take injured and endangered animals and nurse then back to health for re-release into the wild.
There are reports of animals being on anti-depressants because they are unhappy from being away from their natural habitat.
Animals are often killed once they cannot breed. ————> http://blog.peta.org.uk/2014/02/rip-marius-young-giraffe-killed-by-zoo/
Animals are often malnourished and depressed.
Another zoo killing a couple of lions to make way for other lions.
Healthy cub killed here
You should probably look up zoochosis, oh look here’s a link!
I can sit here and post a bunch of links that you most likely will not go through, but it is pretty simple to understand that captivity is cruel. Being forced away from your natural habitat is cruel and if you want to help the animals, it is very simple: HELP THE FUCKING ANIMALS. Donate the money you were going to use to go to the zoo directly to non-profit organizations dedicated to help or save animals. People don’t go to zoos thinking “hell yeah my money is going to help animals out in the long run” instead people go to zoos thinking “hell yeah I’m going to see the fucking king of the jungle roar.”
FALSE. Fathers who ask for sole custody are far more likely to get it. It’s just that they don’t ask, mostly women do. Men win custody over women even if they are ostensibly unfit. More and more, judges and parents rule in…
life as a black person is one where you must always walk with your guard up because you never know when or where the latest attack on your humanity will come from. smfh.
but racism is only an america problem, and anti-blackness isn’t global. right.
And the biggest problem here is that people don’t even know/ understand why blackface is racist.
Because it’s just a costume riiiiight??
