Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

I AM SEETHING.  FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. 
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME
NO CONSCIENCE
NO HISTORICAL BEARING
HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?
THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?
WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE? 
NEVER FORGET. NEVER.

Because I’m a huge fan of the Domesticity Meme, but I wanted a version that could also apply to, say, a single parent and their teenager, or a house full of siblings, or that character and their awful first college roommate, or a bunch of allies forced to share a series of motel rooms in their cross-country quest for [insert goal here].

SO.  The rules:
Leave me the names of two or more characters.  I’ll answer the following list of questions about them living together:

  • Who steals socks out of the laundry?
  • Who actually vacuums behind the couch?
  • How do they handle house guests?
  • Who cheats outrageously at board games?
  • Who’s more likely to start a home improvement or fix-it project and accidentally make everything worse?
  • Who uses the last of the toilet paper and forgets to change the roll?
  • What happens when one of them gets the flu?
  • What happens when the sink won’t stop dripping?
  • Who’s the better cook?
  • Who’s more likely to break something fragile?
  • Rainy Saturday afternoon and everybody’s at home together.  What do they do?

YES YES PLEASE

"32,975"

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

Hello, I am currently 15 years old and I want to become a walrus. I know there’s a million people out there just like me, but I promise you I’m different. On December 14th, I’m moving to Antartica; home of the greatest walruses. I’ve already cut off my arms, and now slide on my stomach everywhere I go as training. I may not be a walrus yet, but I promise you if you give me a chance and the support I need, I will become the greatest walrus.”

 

Youtube comments are the best sometimes

Do you ever get so proud of the glee cast like wow remember when they were all little unknowns and now they’re starring in movies and writing movies and becoming authors and going on Broadway and coming out with solo albums and getting awards and have been on countless magazine covers and are on commercials and wow do you ever take a moment to cry over this
