stereotypes against white people are not dangerous at all. no one is out here stopping and frisking you guys for liking starbucks and chipotle. meanwhile, black teenagers suspected of being “thugs” and “threats” are slain on sight so please calm the fuck down and learn how to take a joke

Images from an epidemic.

Shots in and around Kailahun, Sierra Leone where the worst Ebola outbreak ever recorded continues unabated.
The latest bad news is that the lead doctor at the largest government-run Ebola isolation ward has now also come down with the disease.

When you see something like this, it’s hard not to wonder whose protection this is actually for: journalists, or the Israeli Government.  One of the reasons that the Vietnam War generated so much political opposition at home was because it was really the first war where images of war-related destruction and casualties were televised to the American people in real time.  It’s amazing how quickly people stop supporting war when the results of it are shoved in their face.  Conversely, one of the quickest ways to stifle opposition to war is to hide its results.  That’s part of the reason why the Bush I administration refused to allow the coffins of dead soldiers to be photographed, a tradition that Clinton and GWB upheld.  Out of sight, of mind.

The truth is … that climate change is a FACT and no matter how much you go against it, it is something that we cannot deny forever.

let girls live, especially brown girls, they have the world judging them, dont add to it. protect your own, let them make their own choice, just bc they dont align with the “natural” look doesnt make them any less authentic. the “natural” thing is another b.s excuse to police girls. LET THEM LIVE *echoes*
