A helpful way to look at [injustice in the world] is to view all of human history as a ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’ situation. You wake up one day and find that you did all sorts of shit – good and bad – that you have no memory of. And it doesn’t matter because it was still you. And I’m saying, it was literally you – if put in the same situation, you would have done the same thing your forefathers did. The only reason you’ve escaped guilt, and the only reason you’re able to watch old Bugs Bunny cartoons and cringe at how racist they were, is because you were born in an era after other people had already done a lot of the hard work rooting out that shit. You know what your great-grandparents didn’t.

A study of television news found that black crime suspects were presented in more threatening contexts than whites: Black suspects were disproportionately shown in mug shots and in cases where the victim was a stranger. Black and Latino suspects were also more often presented in a nonindividualized way than whites—by being left unnamed—and were more likely to be shown as threatening—by being depicted in physical custody of police. Blacks and Hispanics were also more likely to be treated aggressively by police officers on reality-based TV shows, including America’s Most Wanted and Cops. Mass media are therefore a major contributor to Americans’ misconceptions about crime, with journalists and producers apparently acting based on their own or expectations of their audiences’ stereotypes about crime.

My school is telling me that the shirt I wore to school today that said “legalize gay” is inappropriate. They told me that I need to put something over it, and that it is offensive. I refuse. I am a child of artificial insemination and I was raised my my two mothers. I am a strong advocate for the LGBT community and the fact that my school and others are offended by this is sickening. I just wanted to share this injustice with you guys .

I’m really sad and really angry about what’s happening right now. For those of you who don’t know, Mary Jane Veloso, a Filipina OFW, is in the deathrow for drug charges. She’s a victim of human trafficking. She is going to be executed in front of a firing squad for a crime she did not commit. My countrymen are protesting for her freedom but the Indonesian government refuses to hear us. Our government doesn’t seem to care enough to fight for her. I am absolutely sickened by their lack of action. It just makes it clear where their loyalties really lie. It is not in the Filipino people. It is not in the value of our lives.

Please help us save her. Sign this petition.
