but it’s not about race right?

Woah

This is the master post of the new millennium showcasing racism and white supremacy at its finest.


Please stop telling us it’s not about race and to move on cause IT IS and WE WONT until justice is served and equality is established!

The sad fact is that 41% of New York City babies are aborted.

The chilling fact is that 59.8% of black New York City babies are aborted.

Only FOUR out of TEN black children make it outside of the womb in New York City.

We must stop the industrialized killing of our unborn children. What legacy will you leave?

The sad fact is that each night, more than 21,000 children are homeless in NYC.

The number of people sleeping in shelters has grown 60 percent in the past decade.

Families make up 3/4ths of the homeless population.

53% of the homeless in shelters are black, 32% are Latino.

65.5 percent of high school seniors graduate in NYC.

There are currently 12,568 children in foster care in NYC.

In 2011, there were over 90,000 separate reports of abuse/neglect in NYC. 

There are 131 children in secure detention. 112 in non-secure detention.

There are more than 108,000 children in NYC who have a parent that is incarcerated. More than 73 percent of women who are incarcerated have a child under the age of 18. 

But go ahead and try to explain how you care about children. Just try to justify how you can ignore all of these children, for a fetus. 

Forcing people to stay pregnant does nothing for children. Advocate for better sex education. Fight to help PoC who find themselves with unwanted pregnancies. Don’t ignore the fact that nearly 90 percent of pregnancies that end in abortion for PoC were unplanned, use this information to help them. 

My legacy is one of respect, understanding, education, and compassion. You’ll catch on eventually. 

That rebuttal is the best thing I’ve read all week.

5 Things I Learned As A Sex Slave in Modern America

#5. Sex Slavery Is a Thriving American Industry
I was 4 or 5 years old when it started.
If you’re expecting my “sold into child slavery” story to begin with guys in ski masks bursting into my bedroom and snatching me up in the night, the actual story is worse, in a way. One night, my stepdad just pulled me out of bed and said, “Come here, uncle needs to see you.” There were zero uncles downstairs. But there were several creepy, creepy men who passed me around from lap to lap and paid him for the privilege. If you’re asking yourself where my mother was, well, she was right there, watching.

Ben Affleck on Real Time with Bill Maher

Brilliant response by Ben Affleck on Real Time with Bill Maher this weekend.

Or Zak Ebrahim when he spoke about being raised on hatred and violence, but choosing a peaceful path. He said, “I stand here as proof that violence isn’t inherent in one’s religion or race, and the son does not have to follow the ways of his father.” His full talk: I’m the son of a terrorist. Here’s why I chose peace »
