Crime, Memes, and New York: Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.comm Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1996, MichelleJones was charged with murder and neglect of her four-year-old son. While incarcerated in an Indiana prison for more than two decades, the NY Times reports that Jones became a published scholar of American history and used the prison library to further her education. During her sentence, Jones, alongside a group of inmates, produced the best research project for the Indiana Historical Society, in addition to writing several dance compositions and plays, one of which is set to open at an Indianapolis theater in December. She also got certified as a paralegal and received a bachelor’s degree in 2004. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After spending 20 of an initial 50-year sentence behind bars, Jones was released. The very next day, Jones took her talents to New York University (NYU) to join the school’s doctoral program, only after her application was accepted and later denied by Harvard University’s history program, which was her first choice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, Jones was among 18 applicants out of over 300 for the program, her application was overturned after some professors raised concerns about her application. While other professors supported Jones, calling her “one of the strongest candidates in the country last year, period,” Jones was ultimately denied for minimizing her crime “to the point of misrepresentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Jones got pregnant as a result of non-consensual sex with a high school senior, at the age of 14. In turn, her mother beat her in the stomach with a board, forcing her to be removed from the home.

Club, Food, and Friends: 1994 I was so grateful at this time in my life. I always am grateful for this life🙏 but things change and people come and go, as you know... I recall this time like it was yesterday. I had just given up having to steal food to survive. I remember biking up to that strip club in the snow with my big hoop earrings and my shaved head a couple years earlier, 20, praying for that cocktail waitress job. I knew I would get arrested soon for stealing stupid cans of tuna & beans from Key Food on Avenue A. Almost homeless in NYC, getting evicted by my NYU roommates was no fun.. thank God for NYC squats and art assistant jobs in soho and dive bars. Borrowing $20 from Anne Laure and it taking me a week to scrounge the money to pay her back, just to borrow it again. I had to steal food as a kid too. Any of you out there?? That's a tough one to explain to people who don't understand. The mindset it takes as a 5 and 6 year old to break into someone's house or apartment, just to eat from their cabinets. I can't imagine a life without being grateful for ALL the opportunities and good times and good people I have met and those who i have painfully lost.🌹 The true friends, my incredibly wise little boy, my loving grandmother, and these people who come into my life on a daily basis around the world, who share themselves with gracious heart and those who continue to come back to my shows who accept me for who I am, and whatever the hell it is that i "do"... MY GOOD HEALTH, that's what I am thankful for. I only wish the same for all of you out there... that you find your peace, your place, your awareness of time in this life🌹 Within this struggle. To the ones who take from our hearts, wreck our heads, steal from our soul, I wish the same sweetness to you, so that maybe you can change your selfish ways, on your own path, away from mine. Good luck out there and bless those who have not🙏💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 Yours in this struggle, xxxxC🌹🌹🌹 GRATEFUL Photo: @_tedbarron_

Alive, Donald Trump, and Fucking: nunyabizni: mitchfynde: libfas: libfas: NYU stages gender-swapped Trump-Clinton debate to prove gender bias. End up realizing they might have been biased against Trump after all. So NYU staged a re-enactment of the debates, with Clinton acted by a man and vice versa. The idea was that it would ‘confirm the suspicion that Trump’s aggression would not be tolerated from a woman’, and that ‘Clinton’s competence would seem even more convincing coming from a man’. It turned out a little different, here are some reactions from the crowd: We heard a lot of “now I understand how this happened”—meaning how Trump won the election.  The simplicity of Trump’s message became easier for people to hear when it was coming from a woman—that was a theme. One person said, “I’m just so struck by how precise Trump’s technique is.”  Someone said that Jonathan Gordon [the male Hillary Clinton] was “really punchable” because of all the smiling.  There was someone who described Brenda King [the female Donald Trump] as his Jewish aunt who would take care of him. Someone else described her as the middle school principal who you don’t like, but you know is doing good things for you.  Source FUCKING LOL I just noticed the Guardian uploaded the video but they unlisted it, meaning only people with the link can see it (pls thank me pls) and it doesn’t show up in searches or suggestions. They basically hid it. Hmm. Why oh why would they do that?…. International Women’s Day? Here’s FEMALE TRUMP! KEEP IT ALIVE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!
