Los búhos son símbolos de muerte en la mitología Maya. [Xcaret, Riviera Maya]

translation: Owls are symbols of death in Mayan mythology.  [well, Mayan religion, really.  Other people’s religions aren’t mythology any more than one’s own beliefs are.]

Kinda Racist? Try Diet Racism!

The taser isn’t being used for defense. It’s being used to punish somebody for being uncooperative. At this point it’s basically an instrument of torture.

Republicans only want to help those who do not need help, and hurt those who are looking for equality.

I guarantee you that every person of color in this country has faced an indignity from the ridiculous, to the grotesque, to the sometimes fatal, at some point - in the last couple hours - because of their skin color.

Race is there and it is a constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it.

Javon Johnson - “cuz he’s black”
As the world watches the events unfolding in Ferguson, many people have thought “how can I help?”. As a public school teacher, my first thought is always about the children involved in any tragic situation like this. When I found out school had been canceled for several days as a result of the civil unrest, I immediately became worried for the students in households with food instability. Many children in the US eat their only meals of the day, breakfast and lunch, at school. With school out, kids are undoubtedly going hungry.

ALL OF THIS MONEY WILL GO TO FEED KIDS IN FERGUSON. A dollar or a hundred dollars, it doesn’t matter. You will be helping to put food in the mouth of a child who needs it. Regardless of your opinion on the civil unrest in Ferguson, there is no need for innocent children to go hungry because of it.
