Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”


I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law.

Are there really people fucked up enough to "dress up" as Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown?? I'm sorry I don't mean to bother you but if people are really doing that I just don't know what to say. That would be the most disgusting and disrespectful thing I could think of.

It’s a solid word! Also conundrum!

Traces of coca and nicotine found in Egyptian mummies - WTF fun facts

well DUH. a lot of historians are still trying to process the fact that ancient egyptians knew how to build boats, which is ridiculous. why would they not be seafarers and explorers?

this is not new or surprising information at all. it pretty much day one of any african-american studies course.
the egyptians knew that if they put their boats in front of the summer storm winds it’d blow them right across the sea to the Americas and they shared that with the greeks.

It’s really hard for people to understand that everyone had boats, exploration, and trade interactions without the same level of murder, colonization, and violence that the Europeans did. It’s really hard for people to get that.

An 11,000 year old Iroqious boat.
A whole book about Ancient Egyptian Maritime technology and culture.
Scientists “shocked” to discover that humanity casually traveled the seas over 100,000 years ago.
The Sea-Craft of Prehistory (book; Eurocentric as heck)
Humans traveling long distances by sea and deep=sea fishing for c. 42,000 years
The Dufuna Canoe, Africa’s oldest surviving boat, is 8,000 years old (Nigeria)
A fleet of 5,000-year-old boats in Abydos, Egypt
7,000-year-old seaworthy vessels in Kuwait
7,500-year-old boat found in China’s Zhejiang Province. 
Scientific Evidence for Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Voyages (273 pages-for the hardcore only!):

The only plausible explanation for these findings is that a considerable number of transoceanic voyages in both directions across both major oceans were completed between the 7th millennium BC and the European age of discovery. Our growing knowledge of early maritime technology and its accomplishments gives us confidence that vessels and nautical skills capable of these long-distance travels were developed by the times indicated. These voyages put a new complexion on the extensive Old World/New World cultural parallels that have long been controversial.


I love how white people are all shocked about this like it’s new. Anyone who has taken any history course beyond the scope of “Look at what white people did” knows this.
Like this was literally the first thing I learned in my World Civilizations course.

not only are black women the most educated, they are also the most beautiful and the most talented

yes blacks are all these things but whites are too. lets not put one another down.

actually no! I don’t agree with this….some of y’all whites…

Ok what do u think about the recent happenings w mike brown since u are so passionate abt race issues ? Can u link me the posts about his case and the protests for him that u’ve reblogged this week ? Also jus for good measure all the black ppl you’ve reblogged today ?

oh my god im not a major “racial equality advocate” I do however have my views on things, just as you do. so if you dont agree with me, okay cool it doesnt affect me. its not illegal to post my opinion on something so i will continue to share my thoughts on other topics too.

Sooo essentially you only have an opinion when white ppl are left out and u dont actually care abt racial equality and visibility ? Bc if u did u’d be talking abt racial issues often not sittin here pretending like whites actually need support in a society that always will tell u that u are smart and talented and beautiful and base all standards on u
