So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















friendly reminder that studies have shown that white people do not empathize with Black people and we (including medical personel) also think Black people feel less pain

"OH MY GOD! THE CAR IS DAMAGED! YOU POOR CAR!"

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

This ↑


It’s also called it costs a lot less to pay for medicine from Walgreens than the hospital stay they would need if it was left untreated.

I don’t even know how to say this but I need help.

In 2013 I obtained a Blue and Gold Macaw that I named Frodo. His previous owner could no longer care for him and he was extremely aggressive and underweight. It took a few weeks but he finally warmed up to me and started to let me hold him and pet him and by 6 months he was a total sweetheart. I loved him dearly but I made myself adopt him out like I had promised myself. 

Yesterday, I got a call from his new owner saying he wasn’t eating and plucking feathers pretty badly even after months of being with her. She said in three weeks shes going to post him on craigslist for 600$ but is giving me first rights. Where I will most likely never see him again.

I am absolutely terrified. This bird was my baby and I can’t imagine him being in harms way. Theres no way I can come up with an extra 600 dollars to bring my baby home, Im in college and money is really tight. My mom has offered to help pay but shes not really in the position to drop that money right now either. We can afford his general care and my mom works at a vets office where he can get free medical care anytime . Its just the jump of 600$ to get him back in the first place. The semester just started and im broke. I need help please. I hate asking for money but I cant imagine him being gone forever. 

If I take him back, it will be a permanent home for him. Hes only 6 years old and is going through his terrible twos which his owner wasn’t prepped for I guess. She as been  really nice to us and has been in contanct so many times. Please help me get my tickle buddy back .

here are some pictures from when we owned him. And I have a video on my go fund me of him and his obsession with hair!

Anything you can give helps, even if its just a reblog. Please help me, I dont know what to do for him.

HELP Birblr!!!

The goal has been raised because of unforseen issues, please help out this dedicated person to get this bird back!

Rihanna destroyed CBS’ attitude towards domestic abuse in 2 tweets 

Rihanna is not happy with CBS’s decision to cancel her performance before last week’s Thursday Night Football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens. 

Sensing that an appearance by the singer — who was the victim of a highly publicized domestic abuse incident herself — might bring them some bad press in the wake of the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal, the network decided to scrap her show. Rihanna wasn’t pleased
"The audacity" is right.
