prismatic-bell: kari-izumi: dancinbutterfly: edenfenixblogs: the-omniscient-narrator: spacevinci: somethingratchet: sheisraging: Cindy: Hey… can I be a Jew? Rabbi: No. Cindy: Can I be a Jew? Rabbi: No. Cindy: Can I be a Jew? Rabbi: You really want this? Sincerely? Not ‘cause this one’s trying to blackmail me for something stupid when I was 19 or for broccoli with your dinner? What is this for you? Cindy: Honestly, I think I found my people. I was raised in a church where I was told to believe and pray. And if I was bad, I’d go to hell. And if I was good, I’d go to heaven. And if I’d ask Jesus, he’d forgive me and that was that. And here y’all are sayin’ ain’t no hell. Ain’t sure about heaven. And if you do something wrong, you got to figure it out yourself. And as far as God’s concerned, it’s your job to keep asking questions and to keep learning and to keep arguing. It’s like a verb. It’s like … you do God. And that’s a lot of work, but I think I’m in, as least as far as I can see it. I mean, maybe I’ll learn more and say fuck the whole thing, I mean, but I wanna learn more, and I think I gotta be in it to do that. You know… Does that make sense? Shit, did I just talk myself out of it? Rabbi: Ask me again. Cindy: Can I be a Jew? Rabbi: Yes. I cried so hard during this scene. First of all, this is beautiful. Second of all, as a contextual note, the rabbi said no for a reason. In Jewish conversion, one of the steps is that you must be discouraged at least three times. This comes from the story of Ruth, where Naomi told her not to follow her back to the Jewish tribe three times before giving in. Third of all, this is beautiful. Adrienne KILLED it in those scenes. I wept with her! “It’s like a verb.” She wants to work on her faith continuously and that was gorgeous and so honest. THIS WAS SO IMPORTANT DO U UNDERSTAND. We aren’t a people who actively convert people. You’ll never see a Jewish person try to convert you. We believe in everyone’s right to believe what they want. But it was so nice to see someone who wasn’t raised in it be able to see value in my faith. I have never seen anything like that on tv before Not only that?? Its one of the only times I’ve ever seen Judaism The Faith and Religion ever actually articulated on screen. What do we believe? We believe that You Choose To Do God. Thats why we’re the Chosen People - because we Chose to Opt In To Doing God this particular way. I have never in my life before seen any form of media EVER express what Jews ACTUALLY BELIEVE ABOUT THE UNIVERSE out loud but OITNB did. And when people ask me? I always throw them here. Because it’s dead on. You do God (Jewishly) and you have to choose it. That’s what we believe. That’s it. Thats the entire thing. And this is the only time we have EVER had ANY representation and I will cherish it always. And for those of you who didn’t see the show? She got to bathe in a mikvah equivalent and convert fully so yes, Cindy is as Jewish as the whitest Ashkenazi Jew. More, because according to the sages, the convert is to be praised for their choice and their dedication. And as such, any children she has will be Jewish too. <3 Love for Cindy. Love to any religious Jews out there who feel unseen in media (you’re right, we aren’t seen). Love for any converts out there who don’t feel Jewish enough (you are - no matter what branch you converted in). Extra love for all my Jews of Color (no addendum - just love to you all period). Stay strong out there yall. Write yourselves into some stories and talk about our faith okay? We deserve to be seen and known, even if we aren’t converting. Demystification is part of the fight against antisemitism. All of this, but ALSOit’s so rare to see black people get to be any other religion of Baptist Christian. Or to even talk about that not all of us believe in God in the way we’re been taught. Most of what I’ve learned about Judaism I learned through the Jewish bloggers I’ve found here like @prismatic-bell @realsadjewishhours and @wetwareproblem among others, but even as an agnostic black woman, I was just as happy to see Cindy find her own way, and even happier to hear that they actually did right with the conversion process this time. And @dancinbutterfly’s last line is why, when my rabbi said I should go to rabbinic school, I said…..no.Rabbi means teacher, and there are a ton of good Jewish teachers of Jews out there. But there aren’t so many Jewish teachers of gentiles. It’s why I work at cons under the name Oy Vay Productions. I am like you, except where I’m not, and where I’m not should not have to be frightening or mysterious to you. And then, when someone is all “well the Jews are a bunch of wealthy lizards,” you can remember me, think of me teaching you not just about anime but about the fact that Jews are just people out here doing how we do, and instead of “that seems possibly incorrect but I don’t know enough about Jews to dispute it,” you can say “that is not true, I have met and been befriended by a Jew, shared a meal and a class talked, and I know better.”I do my teaching by being a loud and proud Jew who is out here doing G-d an living my life. There are plenty of rabbis with skills I could only dream of having.

siryouarebeingmocked: smis-five-creedmoor: kongu2525: someoneintheshadow456: thenightling: pileofknives: honeybubb: me #can’t believe this movie is from 1998 It’s like y'all think people didn’t talk about shit before 2008. It’s because the “Woke” generation likes to pretend they invented inclusiveness and feminism. When I was in Kindergarten (in 1986) the school librarian read us a book about why it’s important to let little boys play with dolls and own dolls if they want them.   Again, this was in 1986 but that somehow blows the minds of this generation.  How did we go so backward that these things from our past surprise them?  I’ve seen kids try to argue how “unrealistic” Stranger Things and Stephen King’s It were because it had white kids friends with a black boy and how “that didn’t happen back then.”    And I’m sitting here like “Where do you think all your interracial friends came from?   Spawned from cabbages?”   Stephen King wrote “It” in 1986 and based it on the dynamic of real friendships he had in the 1950s. When my parents were in 6th grade they had a drawing teacher who was a pedophile. One day he reached under a girls shirt and pinched her breasts and the boys started screaming at him and throwing objects. Their antics alerted the principal, and the boys told him everything and the pedo bastard got fired. THIS WAS IN INDIA IN THE 70s. EVEN BACK THEN 10-12 YEAR OLD BOYS UNDERSTOOD THAT SEXUAL HARASSMENT WAS BAD. People didn’t live in caves and go “unga bunga rape is totes good” and then suddenly change 10 years ago. Because the media keeps acting like we dont already know its bad, they keep pushing the woke agenda when its been normal to call out sexist crap and to not be racist for years now. Lots of whites marched alongside MLK during the Civil Rights movement in the 60s. Because they too saw the bullshit that was Jim Crow Laws. Not being racist is nothing new. I think a lot of activists want to think they’re plucky rebels.I see lots of them who get outright upset when someone goes “the world is less prejudiced than you think”. I’m still reeling from the fact that apparently people don’t think black kids and white kids were friends in the fucking 80s? Like 50s I could at least get the assumption but the 80s???: LET'S NOT DO ANY GENDER STEREOTYPING. siryouarebeingmocked: smis-five-creedmoor: kongu2525: someoneintheshadow456: thenightling: pileofknives: honeybubb: me #can’t believe this movie is from 1998 It’s like y'all think people didn’t talk about shit before 2008.

cisphobicmac: thecringeandwincefactory: i-hate-chick-fil-a: This guide will be useful to Americans when we need to protest This is great stuff for situations where you’re dealing primarily with cops - just please keep in mind that one size does not necessarily fit all situations. We’ve found locally, for instance, that nazis here like to use knives. A lot of knife injuries come from attempting to fend off an attack, and thus result in slashing injuries to the arms. Fortunately there are very light, flexible, and relatively inexpensive products originally intended for butchers to use that are great for this and will cover your whole arm or forearm. Always research this stuff ahead of time and look at what other people in similar situations are doing and share the information you find.

memehumor: Conspiracies=Proof: Cinematograpner at Parallax Peak Nasa releases things slowly. We already have proof life is still there living underground. They'll tell us about it in 50 years maybe Like Reply Nov 23, 2016 4:53pm Edited Nice to know this guy has a direct contact with NASA. "claps Like Reply 19 Nov 23, 2016 6:05pm Le Triolet "We already have proof Show them me. Reply 4-23 hrs Like Cinematographer at Parallax Peak dont work for Nasa but this has been said and the proof was undeniable. Mars habitants live underneath the surface. Like Reply 22 hrs Proof? Where? Your response proves nothing. Like Reply O 4 20 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak Honestly, I am too lazy. If you really want to see be serious about and I will post. Like Reply 20 hrs Works at Manager - Business Deve lo pment Please post -I am also intrigued. Like Reply 3 19 hrs Skovlyskolen i am too lazy". What a stupid excuse. Stop this tinfoil bullshit Like Reply 5-18 hrs 12 hours later, we are still waiting Like Reply 1 14 hrs Le Triolet You're mistaking "proof" with "statement" There's no definitive proof that life STILL or HAD existed on Mars The last thing they showed to us was leaking hill, where you could see some wet spots coming out of the top of the hill Apparently it's water trapped inside minerals. APPARENTLY! Water doesn't always contain 'life' And if they did find life on MARS, what would be the way to difference it from the microscopic organisms they sent from Earth to Mars with all the probes and bullshit/crap they constantly send over there? The plan is already ruin, if something... we created or recreated life on Mars Watch more documentaries or informate yourself better, I'm not making this stuff up. It's from NASA themselves. They tried to decontaminate the probes so they never send microbes/spores and such into space but it's not possible to completely clean it. Life PROBABLY exist on Mars but is it from Martian origin or 'Earthian'? That's what worry them the most. Like Reply 14 hrs משתלן at ה this is what i call "the trickle theory" which says that nasa already knows about alien life but is breaking the news to the public ever so slowly so we don't freak out. i do wonder about it sometimes but there is no direct proof for it. Like Reply 7 hrs Edited -Cinematographer at Parallax Peak why are you so upset with me? Its one thing no beliving me, its another to respond that way. Have you have looked for the proof? Or do you just go around disproving proof Like Reply 7 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak t is, just look Like Reply 7 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak The people of mars are human. They are more advanced then us but not in the sense of what you think. It was a catastrophe a long time ago they caused the Martians to bring and live everything they know underground. The "scar is mars" shows the damage from the catastrophe that sent them underground. There are pictures from Nasa that show the translucent tunnels they use. Some actually show a ball traveling through them. Mars is not a dead lifeless planet. and it is definite ly not red. The original pictures Nasa released before they doctored them shows this. The real question is, if these people exist, and the planet is not dead as they say. Why do they not tell us these things? Is there a reason they don't want us to know about the people of mars? There are domes on Mars, there are statues of past ruins that they forget to doctor out of photos. Thanks to people obsessed with this topic they found things nasa wouldn't have think to photoshop out. Entire cities are smeared out of Google Mars. There are black objects on the surface that are blurred out for no reason. If you don't question these things or don't want to that's on you. Googling anything I just said will force you to think. Its deeper than what "nasa" tells people. Just like the pictures released of pluto recently actually say they were taken in 2011 Like Reply 7 hrs Edited Manning, Alberta you seem have hard time understanding what "proof" means. Perhaps you should consider purchasing an english dictionary. Like Reply 7 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak Whats with the insults? Like Reply 6 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak just said google what i typed. Are you that lazy??? its not like I can post pictures here. Like Reply 6 hrs btw, those links you get from googling it, isn't really proof was well. a lot of it leads to conspiracy sites....and those aren't good sources as proof. a lot of it is speculation, yes they ask a lot of questions, and they are all valid questions, but a lot of them don't get answered. Like Reply 6 hrs Cinematographer at Parallax Peak You are not looking in the right place then. Proof to some what nasa tells them. So im done with this topic. If somebody would really like to talk I'll reply. I bet the people who believe everything nasa tells them are the same people who have faith in the government Like Reply 5 hrs What would we look for? Life from Earth is all we know, we wouldnt recognise life on Mars Cinematographer at Parallax Peak omg Like Reply 5 hrs memehumor: Conspiracies=Proof

He was smart, he was a writer (you could tell by his phrasing) and this is something he TRULY cares about. That boy has a heart and he cares. He sees the truth for what it is and he refuses to sit idly and watch as the youth of america just stumbles by. BUT the teacher was done. She didn’t care. She was fed up. BUT the students were uncaring, even laughing, as this young man walked out BUT this video was put online to be deemed as a joke and embarrass that boy. THAT is unexceptionable THAT is not right. If you are this young gentleman  if you are his relative, or if you have ever done something similar. I am so proud of you To take your opinion and share. NOT ONCE did he threaten her, NOT ONCE did he raise his voice above a proper projection so that the class could hear his words  NOT ONCE did he insult her in any means past how she was behaving with her job. He didn’t undermine her. He didn’t hurt her, and yet he gave his message and left in peace. That makes him a true, undeniable, super hero in my eyes. Thank you sir. My mom, an elementary school teacher, clapped an applauded this boy when I showed this to her. That boy is great hot damn this kid knows where it’s at No, seriously, listen to this guy: “You want kids to come into class, you want ‘em to be excited for this? You gotta come in here and make ‘em excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better, you gotta touch his freakin’ heart. And when you come in here like you did last time and you make a statement about ‘this is my paycheck,’ indeed it is. But this is my country’s future and my education.” I would ask him to be my TA so fucking fast. long hair kid for president I do love the fact that this was taken with the intention to humiliate him, but instead it backfired and pretty much everyone who has watched this has cheered and applauded this guy. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this. : lucidnirvana: natsa-is-a-free-elf: thebloodymaze: professorfangirl: youhavenoleveragedarlings: mightxrein: jakeybobakey: rinthewin: caffenespeaks: the legend This makes me so happy, and yet so sad.
