Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.

If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format).

As previously stated on my blog, Tumblr has a very sick fascination with Asians, specifically East Asians. Repulsive little white weaboos and fetishizing boys with a self-proclaimed “thing for Asian girls” are mainly referring to what they believe is the ideal Asian woman: a fair-skinned, petite, ultra thin Japanese girl in a schoolgirl uniform. If you don’t match the stereotype, you’re ignored or even branded as not “Asian enough.” 

Asia is a vast and beautiful continent with many different types of ethnic groups, skin colors, facial features, complex histories and traditions. Girls from Southeast Asia with darker skin, from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and my own nation - Myanmar (which often times is left out of any discourse on  Southeast Asia alone, forget about Asia in general), are looked upon with distaste, either totally forgotten or simply lumped under the blanket term of the third world. Our countries are brought up in conversation only when people want to talk about how are nations are nothing but dirtiness, corruption, and prostitution. Our culture and looks aren’t cool or trendy like that of Japan or Korea, and even the depth of how much those cultures are explored and appreciated stops at anime and k-pop, bastardized by stereotypes and represented under the same set of aesthetics. Darker-skinned girls from other countries cannot seem to compare with snow-white East Asian ideal. 

I’ve endured the rolling of a fellow Asian girlfriend’s eyes when I try to talk about my culture, because apparently people from Asian nations other than East Asia don’t count as “Asian,” and we don’t have anything that’s worth being shared or appreciated. I’ve been told my skin is ugly for its brown shade, its uneven tone, my nose a huge wide bulge in the center of my ugly face. I’ve been dismissed by both white and Asian boys because of my color, been told any independent employment of my sexuality was revolting, and had my anger in response invalidated. I’ve been made to feel hideous for so long, and even wanted to denounce my ethnicity entirely because of feelings of inferiority. But I have become strong over the years. And a lot of it stems from forming solidarity with others who have had similar personal struggles. I’ve also had support from good friends and relatives, especially my own mother. She is an amazing individual with beautifully dark skin, the darkest of all her sisters, and called “brown beauty” by my late grandmother - of whom my name is inspired from.

As far as beauty standards go, white women are undoubtedly the ideal for many. Asian women of all different appearances, either pale or dark, should be celebrated in the face of Eurocentric beauty standards, and even in East Asian nations skin colors vary. However, it’s not hard to see that Asian girls with lighter skin are considered by Asian communities and society in general as more attractive. And while white men are undoubtedly at the top when it comes to throwing WOC under the bus, a lot of this negativity comes from our own Asian men, and even other Asian women. Darker-skinned girls are desexualized completely and told we are undesirable. For so long I felt like I could never feel beautiful. However, being able to do so, even by something as seemingly insignificant as a tumblr post felt wonderful, despite the few naysayers who can only view me as objectifying myself instead of feeling proud in my own skin. This is my perspective, and I chose to show it in my own way, empowering myself mentally, emotionally, sexually, etc. A man like you may view my method as vulgar, but I have every right to declare a giant “fuck you” to all the ignorance I’ve faced. You will not take that away from me. 

For all the Asian girls with darker skin out there, dark, Southeast Asian girls from countries that are forgotten…girls who are transgender, or fat, or Muslim, or Buddhist, or Hindu, or of any faith…girls with disabilities, darker girls who have come to this country as refugees or are sex workers…first, second, third gen girls, mixed girls, girls who either cover up or show it all off because that’s how they feel comfortable, girls who aren’t super-thin and petite like society wants you to be, because as I’ve stated before, there is no one Asian “look”…Asian girls with gorgeous, brown skin, probably even much browner than my own, and even more beautiful personalities, talents, and intellects…know that I got you. Whether or not you express yourself through selfies or text posts, poems or essays or songs, I want to see and hear you. I’m definitely no spokesperson and may appear to be just another basic bitch with an internet connection, but if any of you felt vindicated by this or my previous post that alone is more than I could ask for. I am so honored that I have gained the support and admiration from all of you amazing people. Thank you so much.  

So in response to homeboy up there, I’d just like to say that your disapproval of how I choose to express my views and how I go about affecting “true change” is irrelevant as hell. You’ll respect me in a black t-shirt. You’ll respect me in panties. You’ll respect me as an Asian woman and a human being. You’ll respect my brilliantly crafted writing right fucking alongside my selfies. I control my own mind, my body, and my decisions, and you’re not going to decide for me what is and isn’t “productive to my endeavor” and tell me I need to “modify how I represent myself,” so go back to reblogging anime giftsets. Unfortunately for you, I got no booty to go with my post this time around - just several pictures of my basic bitch face :) Enjoy.

Please Share This

Thousands of Tumblr users have been misled by a post suggesting that an unidentified elementary school girl was battered and sexually assaulted by her classmates only to have authorities excuse it as “rough housing”. This story is awful and provokes anger amongst its readers, as it should. However it’s a LIE

This article smelled “off” when I read it because it clearly stated that the mother withheld her daughter’s name to save her from humiliation. Which made the photo of the girl seem off. Why hide her name if you’ll show her face? That’s because this isn’t an article on CNN like the post suggests and that little girl isn’t a sexual assault victim. You’re looking at a photo of Makayla McEvoy. She was 7 when this photo was taken in 2012 after she survived a Kangaroo attack.

Little miss McEvoy is an Australian animal attack survivor. She is NOT an American rape victim from Georgia (thank God)

The artificial news story was fabricated by a Tumblr user called dropmycumberbritches (who now goes by vegetableighs since handing the account off to someone else to avoid heat) After posting the artificial story to raise awareness to Rape Culture, the Tumblr user then celebrated and sang their own praise. Luckily another Tumble user, untrue-posts, found the article, did some digging and reblogged the initial post with the real info.

However, the original post is still picking up speed and is sitting comfortably at 20k+ posts. Please, spread this news and let everyone know that there is not a Georgian rape victim going uncared for. Instead, there’s a poor Australian girl who was attacked by a Kangaroo in 2012 who recovered, only to have her face used for some else’s agenda.

please reblog, several people posted this story and it’s fucking horrible someone would use this as a prop.

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

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.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN

go to youtube and watch this. it has over 50% dislikes and the comments are horrifying

A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to projectunbreakable@gmail.com and we will forward it to her. 

Jesus fucking Christ.

Jesus fucking Christ.

If possible, never, ever let someone leave like this. If you can offer the cabbie money to not go. Insist that the woman, man, child that is being abducted stays with you. DO NOT LET THEM GO.

I’m so fucking upset right now. I AM SO FUCKING PISSED. OH MY GOD.

so hey fun fact for anyone who wants queer history trivia: the first disco in Seattle was opened in 1973 and was a gay bar called “shelly’s leg” and it was named after a dancer named shelly who lost her leg in a confetti cannon accident and used the insurance/lawsuit settlement money to open a gay disco.

a) This is such a fantastic story that I wouldn’t care if it were made up, except that

b) upon further research, it does appear to be true
