christel-thoughts:

if you’re avoiding opportunities to be appreciated, prohibiting yourself love/affection/admiration because you want to wait until you make some superficial change, please stop. You deserve love as you are from people who see you on more than superficial terms. and i really do mean that.

Media Stumped On How To Handle Missing Mixed-Race Woman
WASHINGTON—Struggling to find an appropriate response to a delicate situation, members of the American news media admitted Tuesday that they remained stumped on how exactly to handle the case of missing mixed-race woman Alison Johnston. “On the one hand, she’s fairly light-skinned, but on the other, she actually has a black parent, so we’re really at a loss about what to do here,” said USA Today deputy editor Bob Roe, adding that it was entirely up in the air whether to cover the biracial 21-year-old’s abduction as a heartbreaking tragedy worthy of national coverage or a run-of-the-mill disappearance deserving a single 200-word brief. “I mean, it’s tough, because if she were 100 percent black, we’d obviously just bury her way back on E6. There definitely wouldn’t be talk about using her on the front page, you know? But this half-white situation is really making us second-guess everything.” Roe went on to say that, in the end, Johnston would probably be young and attractive enough to put her over the top.

At 21 years old, a girl robbed of her youth, innocence and freedom has finally spoken out against her native North Korea - the ‘unimaginable country’ she was fortunate enough to have escaped from. 

This is the remarkable, harrowing, emotionally charged speech by Yeonmi Park, who fled North Korea after seeing friends and family tortured and killed; revealing the horror of North Korean atrocities, and what life was like for her family and friends under Kim Jong-il’s barbaric and oppressive regime. 

Speaking at the One Young World Summit 2014 in Dublin on Saturday about the reality of life in North Korea, Yeonmi explained that people live their lives in constant fear of the brutal consequences awaiting them if they dare to step out of line, and calling for a global movement to shed light on ‘the darkest place in the world’.

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.

Racism is institutionalized & systemic. This is what black people face, this is the reality.
