Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

What if colleges only made you pay the percentage of tuition that you failed, so if you got an average of 86 for the year you’d only have to pay 14% of the tuition, but if you got a 94 then it’d only be 6%. That way we’d be rewarding the success and even if you flunked the semester, you still wouldn’t have to pay for ALL of the tuition

You are the future. 

Please run for president

that would actually be amazing

Just a few more choice comments from the Darren Wilson GoFundMe.

But it’s not about race, right?
They’re not being racist, right?

Every piece of evidence has shown that Mike Brown did nothing wrong, did not steal, did not confront anyone, and did not attack.

He’s got entry bullet wounds in the PALMS of his hands, indicating that he had his hands up while he was shot, and he has entry wounds in the crown of the head, proving that at over 6’ tall, he’d have to be kneeling or bending at a 90 degree angle.

The cops can’t even keep their story straight, and the only testimonies that stood the test of time and accuracy were from the eye witnesses, minus Wilson.

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT? White people must feel like they can do no wrong. Like people just can’t be evil for evils sake. You want a scapegoat every fucking time; a patsy. So you paint the dead as horribly as possible to gain credibility since the dead can’t talk.

Darren Wilson is racist, evil, and nothing short of a murderer.

Go fuck yourselves.

Jesus fucking Christ how can people be so cruel? Mike Brown was a person with a family and people who care about him. I’m white, but given the history of my race and especially the current circumstances I will never hesitate to say FUCK WHITE PEOPLE. This whole thing just seems unreal to me. I can’t understand what would make people that heartless.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST
