Zimmerman's sooooo not a racist! He was only doing...
I aksed: Here’s the facts: Zimmerman is a 250 pound 28 yr old man. Who was in a car. Who possessed a gun. Who was told NOT to follow Trayvon. He had all the power and was eager to use it. How can you say Zimmerman was just doing his job? Zimmerman has a history of being aggressive, he’s a freaking vigilante. THEN, you post a picture of Trayvon with a grill, as if that justified his...

cognitivedissonance: somuchdependsupon: stfuconservatives: sonofbaldwin: The idea that Rick Santorum was EVER going to answer this question honestly is BEYOND laughable and I can’t believe anyone ever expected that he would.

watanafghanistan: I want to stress the notion that the tragic and fatal attack on an Iraqi mother in California is very much related to the midnight massacre of 16 civilians in Afghanistan, because both were fueled by the same racism and hate that have consumed western society. I call on everyone to condemn such atrocious crimes against innocent people who have never been responsible for the...

(TW: rape, rape culture)
mohandasgandhi: American Indians make up 34.1% of all rapes against women. American Indians make up less than 1% of the U.S. population. What’s wrong here? Not to diminish the gravity of the issue, but I don’t think that statistic is being read correctly. I think that the statistic actually says of the lifetime rate of rape for all American Indian women is 34.1%. Still a huge issue,...
What's missing from the Trayvon Martin tragedy? →
deliciouskaek: 14kgoldnyc: Now here’s a good question: Think about it. Every other situation in which an innocent person gets gunned down there is a cacophony of gun nuts screeching that if only this person had been armed he could have defended himself. It’s been the basis of every concealed and open carry argument for the last couple of decades. ~Digby Yup! They’re pleased Zimmerman...
