The way I dress is really about the message I want to send out to the world about who I am. Growing up in Alabama, I was black. I was poor. I was assigned male at birth — that’s how I like to put it. These things defined me, but I’m not any of these things. Clothes were a way for me to announce to the world who I was. I am not any of these things. This is who I am." - Laverne Cox

One Alarming Statistic Exposes a Serious Problem Between Police and Ferguson Residents →

thepoliticalfreakshow:

If you thought the protests in Ferguson were only a response to the shooting and death of Michael Brown, these numbers might change your mind.

According to NPR, Ferguson’s municipal court issued 32,975 arrest warrants for nonviolent offenses in 2013. 

That’s for a city of 21,135 people.

All those fines and fees were a big boost to the city’s finances. Of Ferguson’s $20 million in revenue in 2013, $2.6 million of that was a result of these arrests. That’s good for the city’s second-highest income stream, NPR notes.

A racial disparity makes this much worse: Of course, those arrest warrants aren’t handed out equally for everyone in the city. Many are issued for traffic violations, for which black residents are disproportionately stopped. Eighty-six percent of those stopped by police are black, even though they only make up two-thirds of Ferguson’s population. Compare that to whites, who are stopped less than 13% of the time, despite making up 29% of the population.

Another infuriating thing to consider: While blacks in Ferguson were twice as likely to be searched after being stopped — and twice as likely to be arrested — searching whites was actually more likely to produce contraband, according to a report from ArchCity Defenders, a St. Louis-based public defender group.

"Folks have the impression that this is a form of low-level harassment that isn’t about public safety," the group’s founder, Thomas Harvey, told NPR. “It’s about money.”

Major impact: It’s not just police procedures that take their toll. The ArchCity Defenders reportnotes that the municipal court in Ferguson will start hearings early, then lock the doors five minutes after the scheduled start time, meaning someone showing up just a little bit late for a hearing can receive an additional “failure to appear” fine.

The impact these procedures have on public opinion is clear. “They’re searching to find something wrong,” one defendant said in the report. “If you dig deep enough, you’ll always find dirt.”

Brown’s death was a tragedy well beyond the scale of a car search or court fine. But statistics like these give insight into the anger of many protesters.

rabbivole:

once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

loaded language and media bias

Anonymous asked: advise for a very insecure and sad teen girl?

chuckpalahniuk:

Ask yourself — be frank — what’s the reward you get for being sad and insecure?   Do you get extra attention from the people who try to fix or rescue you?  Do you get to opt out of big goals and scary commitments?  Consider that those rewards ( pay-offs ) are nothing compared to the joy of moving forward.  I give you permission to be sad and insecure for one more week. 

You are such a fucking loser oh my god

omfg….

write an overrated reactionary story about a bunch of shaved apes beating the piss out of each other and be sure to inject a lot of pseudo philosophical nonsense in between, that will cure your sadness and insecurity and make you feel unwarranted self importance. also: be male.
