In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.
THIS IS THE SHIT

so here is a follow up on one of the women, saira liaqat. after eighteen surgeries, saira is happily working her dream job in lahore as a beautician and hoping to open up her own salon in the near future. she doesn’t need our sympathy. she doesn’t need our pity. she needs our advocacy.
Saira is from Lahore and was attacked with acid thrown on her over an argument relating to an arranged marriage. Her soon to be sister-in-law convinced the brother that she was not a suitable wife after the family couldn’t afford the money to carry out the pre-marriage ceremony.
The UN and other human rights organizations have issued reports for years on many forms of violence against women in Pakistan which involve domestic violence, rape, and honor killings. Acid is thrown at women to avenge the shame that the woman is accused of bringing. Typically it is over marriage refusals, which are often arranged, arguments in the home and sexual advances that are rejected.
Acid burns rarely kill but result in serious disfigurement and suffering which can confine women to their homes, leading to social isolation and depression. Allegations are made and the crime is committed.
The acid is cheap and readily available to all. Although women have protested the open sale of acid, it is still easily available. Women in Pakistan face biases in the criminal justice system and police are relunctant to deal with the so called “family matters”. Only a small percentage of the cases go to trial, bringing the criminals to justice, while the majority are settled out of court after a substantial bribe is paid.
Bribes are comonplace in the culture of the southern Punjab and Sindh areas where a feudal society allows the rich to pay off officials. Illiteracy is commonplace amongst women in the poor rural areas of the country, poverty and a conservative Islamic culture play a strong role in the subordinate position of the female.

madadgaar.org has lots of resources for survivors and works with the UNHCR (I used to work for their front desk and did their documentation for a summer).

reasons why halloween is the best holiday:
- you are not obliged to visit your relatives
- you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
- people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
- its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin
Dad’s on a hunting trip… and he hasn’t been home in a few days.

HOW HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE THIS IS PERFect
OKAY. OKAY. WHAT THE UNHOLY HELL. OH GOD I’M SO MAD. HANG ON LOOK, KEEP READING THIS AND I PROMISE I’LL BE MORE CALM.
In 2012, a 17-year-old boy named T.J. Lane killed three fellow classmates in a school shooting, and was sentenced to life in jail. But wait, that’s not the worst part. This kid pulled a few nasty stunts to really show how much of a pathetic monstrosity he is. In the courtroom during his trial, he took off his more formal clothing to reveal a white undershirt with the word “KILLER” crudely written on it. He was smiling and laughing while the case progressed through the day. And to top it off, when he was finally sentenced [to life in prison], he turned to the families of the victims he killed, and said, “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F—- all of you,” before flicking them off. As if this sick waste of human life couldn’t get any more disgusting.
AND NOW, FOR THE DAMN KICKER: This vile animal has somehow managed to fucking escape prison with a fellow inmate, and is currently on the run. I urge any and all of you to spread this info around and be fully aware of the tragedy this vermin has caused. He must be found and apprehended as soon as possible, and if I’ve made anyone more aware, I’ve helped this cause.
I WANT HIM OFF THE STREETS AND AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW INFURIATED I AM. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OBSCENE LANGUAGE BUT I’M PISSED OFF AT THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THIS IS ONLY ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN.
he still breathing meanwhile Mike Brown is dead.
WHAT THE FUCK THIS I’M STAYING MY ASS IN THE HOUSE NEXT TO THE GUN UNTIL THEY CATCH HIM
I bet you the police won’t kill him when they find him.
Yep the scum is still alive.
T. J. Lane was officially found and taken back into custody earlier today (September 12, 2014), and is off the streets and under government control once again. He is no longer a threat to anyone. Please spread this so people know he’s no longer free.
