By law everyone in Norway is entitled to shelter and subsistence support including basic health care. Poor Norwegians, in other words, receive far more support from society than poor Americans do. Socialism works. The only reason republicans want capitalism is so the rich can hoard all the wealth while poor people suffer. Vote Bernie! EAT. THE. RICH. You pay the same tax rate, but in America you have to add your health care payments and tuition payments. That can be thousands a year. Plus, they get 8 weeks of vacation. They get 35 weeks of paid parental leave. We have to end siphoning all the surplus labor value to shareholders and give back profits as wages and benefits.

America, Anime, and Cars: Japanese Tea Party Article from thegalagals Read it Throw a Throw a fun Japanese Tea Party for that special little gal! jennaavh ginzers: ginzers: ginzers: Teach children that this is not ok Teach children that there's nothing wrong with this I'm really not understanding why you think cultural appropriatiorn would be ok, unless you are assuming that the girl in the picture is part Japanese Yellow face yet she's using white makeu p in the traditional style but oka Cultural appropriation isn't a thing hon. Cultures should be shared by all means. I disagree. The makeup is clearly reflective of traditional Geisha makeup which is yellowface and therefore racist. Furthermore, the girl is wearing a kimono, a garment that has for ages carried cultural significance. Assuming that she is white how can you think this is ok? And cultural appropriation isn't a thing? What rock do you live under?I suggest you educate yourself on the differences between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. I am japanese, in japan at this very moment. The only people who think culture shouldnt be shared are racists like you. A vast majority of Japanese people actually enjoy other people making an effort to spread and enjoy japanese culture, and encourage it. Many make businesses in deliberately taking pictures of people in kimono. A common omiage gift) for foreigners from japanese people is traditional japanese things such as kimonos, tea seats, shisa dog statues, ect And to top it off, basically 80 percent of japanese customs, traditions, and food came from other countries. Japanese is an integration of different cultures, like america. Japan takes influences from places like korea, china, russia, and europe. If japan stuck to itself, there would be no tempura, japanese tea, tea ceremonies, kabuki, japanese bread, japanese curry, j- pop, anime, cars, or modern fishing techniques. The picture is not "yellow face" they are not making fun of asians. In fact, it looks like they put extra care and research into their work. The only reason that you have a problenm with this is because that little girl is white and you know that it is acceptable on tumblr to crap all over white people. The only racist here is you. Rekt btfo Dang she got shut down. Damn I've never hit reblog so fast in my entire fucking life ,6362 20 japanese tea party

Bodies , Children, and Dinosaur: IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ONE PH OTO AND NOT THE O THER YOU RE AN ASSHOLE cyanhyena: vandigo: newwavefeminism: The automatic criminalization of black and brown bodies Now hold on a sec I do INDEED have a problem with one picture but not the other. In the TOP picture you can clearly see two hunting rifles and a mid-sized handgun, which are perfectly reasonable guns for a family to have, and it appears that all three people in the picture are legally old enough to at least have gone to a hunters safety course, which legally justifies the weapons being in their hands for certain purposes - hunting. Hand guns are carried by hunters to defend against bear attacks, should they happen, and by fishermen when fishing in lakes containing sturgeon … because the only way you’re killing a goddamned prehistoric dinosaur fish from hell is by shooting it (no joke). Now the BOTTOM picture clearly contains only ONE child old enough to have gone through a hunters safety course … and not a single gun that is used for anything other than killing other human beings, and this I have a serious problem with. Guns that are intended ONLY for killing humans (the AR and AK series rifles, which are shown) with CHILDREN is a fucking problem. Now, if they were hunting rifles in the bottom picture - you know, guns that are meant solely for the procurement of food - then I wouldn’t have an issue outside of the questionable ages of the children shown. Really huge red flag on the bottom pic is the fact two of the kids clearly have their fingers ON THE TRIGGERS. Its called trigger discipline. I’ve never been to any gun safety classes and I know that much.

Children, Friends, and Life: NOT AGAIN CHARLOTESVILLE tzedektzedek-tirdof: kiras-monkey-bum-face: rootbeergoddess: wildlythoughtfulsquid: SERIOUSLY I am going to print this out and plaster it everywhere I go No but this is a heartbreaking and here’s why: The man in the picture is Leon Greenman (prisoner 98288) and he is the Englishman that survived Auschwitz and pretty much every other death/concentration camp set up by the Nazis, and his story is quite remarkable.  I can’t remember the exact details, but he, his wife and his young child, all Jewish, lived in Rotterdam and during German occupation they were found out and sent to a concentration camp on the outskirts of Rotterdam. He had left his families British passports with friends back home, but the friends became afraid of hiding the passports of Jewish people so they burnt them. Leon requested multiple times for new passports so that they could get back to London, but the passports never arrived in time and Leon, his wife, and his child were separated and sent to Auschwitz. He never saw his wife or child again and he never remarried.  He was moved from camp to camp throughout the war, and collected mementos from each camp as he went, until they were liberated by the allies in 1945, and he gives a first hand insight of what the Holocaust was like and what happened afterwards to the people that survived in his book. It’s called “An Englishman in Auschwitz” and is a humbling read. My history teacher used to work at the Imperial War Museum in London and she had the pleasure of meeting him and listening to his story before he passed away in 2008 aged 97. He worked closely with the Jewish Museum London and fought fascism for the remainder of his life.  Sadly, the Imperial War Museum didn’t find out about Leon’s passing until a member of staff who was meant to meet with him dropped by his house and found that it had been taken over by squatters, who had stolen and mistreated some of his belongings. The museum were only given a few hours to collect all of his mementos and historical items from his time in the concentration camps, and as a historian it’s just devastating to think about how all of these sentimental objects he collected were thrown aside like they were nothing So if you see someone publicly preaching fascism and hate, think of Leon Greenman and all the other men, women, and children that endured the Holocaust, and teach that piece of scum a lesson I did not know any of this. Thank you for the important addition.

All Lives Matter, America, and Asian: *meme comparing Ibgt civil rights movement to pre vious womens rights move- ment and illustrating that ey are both important an aren t whinin My only issue with it and why i think they refer to it as whining is because it's always for some groups and not all, all people should be equal not just minorities. That goes for the gay communities and for black and hispanic communities white. In the military we are all mixed and we all get along. They should make all communities diverse Like Reply November 22 at 3:14pm Hide Well its not about diversity. It's about everybody having hts Like Reply November 24 at 9:25pm Well it's not about diversity. It's about everybody having 24 at 9:25pm People would be more understanding if people of all walks of life were forced to live together peacefully, is what I meant I'm sure if people would lose their jobs for treating people wrongly or objectifying them. They wouldn't be so quick to do it. Like the military You can be thrown out for even saying something about someone Like Reply November 24 at 9:28pm Uh.. I feel like we're having two different conversations Reply And if it was about everyone having equal rights here would be no black lives matter movement, numbers are some how more important than lives. Studies show more whites are killed then blacks each year by the police. If it was about all lives and not one demographic and about every life taken wrongfully by enforcement I could stand behind it Like Reply November 24 at 9:30pm If anything going on right now in these communities was actually about equality, we would be saving Christians and not Muslims. We would be crying over the thousands of children that suffocated to death inside their own bodies on gasses their own goverment set on them. If any lives actually were seen as equal. People wouldnt be crying over donald trump and safe spaces and every other thing they can think of Like Reply November 24 at 9:33pm People care more about things that personally effect them and people like them than eachother. In my eyes thats a problem. Like Reply - November 24 at 9:35pm but... that's the thing. in general and in the picture and the purpose of this post, it IS about all rights. it's not like i only support gay rights. i support equality EVERYWHERE. if rights aren't addressed specifically, singled out, attention will NOT be drawn to them and equality (which means everyone) CANT happen. this isn't about exclusivity, it's about EVERYONE having the right to marry. its comparing one civil rights movement to another, NOT saying "our rights are important and screw everyone elses. "it's saying "our rights are ALSO important and WE WANT EQUALITY Like Reply-2 -November 26 at 4:16pm-Edited Like Reply 2 November 26 at 4:16pm- Edited also have no idea why you're talking about blacks and November 26 at 4:12pm to me your argument just comes across as peoples Like Reply individual rights not mattering because they aren't as important in your eyes as other things, and that's exactly the problem. bigotry does exist. it IS a problem. just implying that it doesn't matter doesnt change the fact that people of all shapes sizes colors orientation races whatever deal with it every single day. maybe not where you are, but somewhere. and that doesn't make it any less important Like Reply-1-November 26 at 4:20pm I didn't say it didn't matter but if it did wouldn't it be about all people not just the labels that we and society have given That's not bigotry I just see through the agendas into the fact that all lives matter equally none of these movements are about equality or their wouldn't be sides... And quite frankly its discrimination to the other people not the ones only going to it for people like them. Like- Reply-November 26 at 9:59pm I dont need to imply ignorance or belittling to call it what it is self absorbed and selfish. It should be all lives matter gay and straight lives matter. Babies in the womb matter and god matters Im a Christian I love all people, hate the sin not the sinner. That's what Christianity is not what you see on the damn social network. It's called repentant Also the reality is that saying any lives matter has to be seen as an inequality to all others. So the number of people dying by this or that are more important than all lives dying Thats just stupid 26 at 10:02pm Thee argument is about individuals lives in stead of the better of all lives. Any life taken is wrong, that's either your faith or your moral. Everyone's mad about Muslims yet they shove gay individuals off roofs in their country. It's always about whats wrong here not there ..If you want it to all be wrong it will be Like Reply November 26 at 10:06pm e shouldn't be classified as gay straight black white asian Christian or otherwise we are all just people Like Reply November 26 at 10:07pm You just called yourself a Christian multiple times, but oka y. BONUS You just called yourself a Christian multiple times, but okay Like Yesterday at 4:40pm I am a Christian so l am proud of that Yeste as like as we condem those who stand up for equality and what they believe in, we fail to progress in this nation. Unlike Reply 2 21 hrs Progressivism shouldn't even be in this country nor should marksmanship socialism or any other ism because America is only about thirty years old in retrospect to other countries. Sadly when everyone keeps fighting because they want their needs met thats not a compromise that's not caring about what you take from another group yet fail to care when you want them to care about yours Its fucking bullshit and stupid 17 hrs Edited memehumor: “I’m Not A Bigot” she says, in the midst of a bigoted rant (With Bonus)
