Disease, it spreads fast. I believe that love should be the same way. It should spread so fast that it becomes a pandemic. Think about it. There’s 6.803 billion people living in the world. If everyone had love for one another, it would spread faster than all the diseases known to man kind put together.
“Always go for what’s right & never follow what you know is wrong. Never let the evils of the world corrupt your soul & try to maintain a positive spirit. Always try to have wisdom over knowledge; anyone can obtain knowledge but wisdom is only obtained through life experience. Most importantly always have love for God, yourself, and others. If you live your life by these rules then you will come out on top.”
People do not like to see you doing well. They will do everything in their power to bring you down to their miserable, sad, and pathetic level. It gets hard sometimes because what they say or do can get to you and it will have you feeling low, which is what they want. But you have to remind yourself that your better than that and your capable of doing so much more. Regardless of the circumstance, you have to have the determination to see that no matter what, what you want out of life will be accomplished with or without them. Push all the negativity aside and don’t let them drag you down. Its like the old saying goes “Misery LOVES company”.
I am happy we have reached 500 signatures. When I started this petition I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to get 100. But I am starting to get afraid because people aren’t signing as fast as they were before & were not able to trigger a signal boost. Although 500 signatures is a lot, we need a lot more. My goal is to get 100,000. Yes this is a big number but I feel it is possible. Please reblog this message and others like it to get more people to read & sign this petition asking the Brazilian government to stop its police brutality on its citizens during the protest.

Protests in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and other Brazilian cities, set off by a 10-cent hike in public transport fares, have clearly moved beyond that issue to tap into widespread frustration in Brazil about a heavy tax burden, politicians widely viewed as corrupt and woeful public education, health and transport systems and come as the nation hosts the Confederations Cup soccer tournament and prepares for next month’s papal visit.

Be sure to sign this petition to bring awareness to the police brutality going on in Brazil. As you can see from the picture, there is plenty of it going on.
Please sign this petition concerning police brutality and government corruption in Brazil. The mass media is not reporting on any of this, today on June 16th radio stations’ signals were cut and replaced with the narration of soccer games simply because they were reporting on police brutality who locked protesters inside a park with children and women inside, gassed them and shot rubber bullets.
The Brazilian media is being censured. Websites that express the true situation by people who have been victims of police brutality are being taken down. The government is refusing to acknowledge any of this, and their president has not even made a statement about the situation.
Please don’t turn your back on these people. Don’t not care because they aren’t your people and its another country. This is HUMAN RIGHTS we are talking about. It is important; people need to stand up and take notice. If a video of Miley Cyrus twerking can get over 1,000 notes then I know we can get this to 1,000 & beyond. As human beings, brothers & sisters of the human race, we have an obligation to help others who are in distress. So sign the petition everyone, bring attention to the Brazilian government and help change Brazil.
500 signatures & counting. Keep reblogging even if you already have and let’s go for 1,000 signatures!
on top of that the NYPD consider the twins as gang members, when one of them is merely a bartender
watch the surveillance video showing the attack

What in all the fucks?!
Reasons why that pet my hair shit and all that isn’t cute. I didn’t know these places existed until the 50s tho, jeez. Fucking sick. And that baby is just a beautiful child that’s so terrible
- Why you can’t pet my hair
- Why you aren’t bringing me in to shit
- Why the rhetoric of curating and introducing grown as people is iffy as FUCK
- Please note 1950 as a date of continuance. They were doing this while my mom was ALIVE. And while civil rights was started.
I never knew this. Wow this is crazy…
America: where white students can get teachers fired for leading anti-racist discussions
but black students must suffer in silence as their white classmates try not…
I am in college and we had to read it. Every time my professor would say the N word I would cringe. When it came time to write a paper on a book we read for the semester I chose Huck Finn & I discussed how Mark Twain did not give a fuck about black people or slavery & it disgusted me that he would paint it as if it weren’t that bad. & I also wrote about how I hate when white writers write about slavery, they have these ridiculous plots that do not follow true history. Like seriously why would a black slave be going on a raft down the Mississippi river, going DEEPER into the south, & head for Louisiana which was one of the worse places to be if you were a slave. I don’t care how uneducated the slaves may have been, it is a well known fact that most all slaves feared being sold to a plantation in the deep south. So why the hell would this man go down their happily and willingly. It made no sense to me.
I got an A on the paper. I don’t know if its because he thought it was good or because he was afraid of what else I’d say if he gave me anything lower lol.

I’m not an artist but I tried. The pictures inside the afro were printed out & glued on but everything else I drew myself. It represents things and people who personify black pride, black history, and inspire me.
Inside the afro:
-Bob Marley; for his philosophy on life
-Lauryn Hill; for the truth & soul in her music
-Rosa Parks; for her courage
-Black Power symbol; obvious reasoning
-Malcolm X; one of my biggest inspirations/ he personifies what I think I man should be
-Tupac Shakur; for being real & his message in his music
-Angela Davis; for the being the personification of a strong black woman
-Huey Newown & Black Panthers; for their service to the black community
-Africa; for being our motherland & were humankind began
-Slaves packed inside a ship; a reminder of where we have come from & the pain my ancestors had to go through
-Slave locked in chains; reminder that although we are no longer slaves locked in chains, we are still slaves to our mind with the chains locked inside our thoughts
What do you think?
