This young man is a witness and a victim, and the fact that this isn’t a more prominent story on every news station is what truly frightens me. From The Dallas News: Galicia says he lost 26 pounds during that time in a South Texas immigrant detention center because officers didn’t provide him with enough food. He said he wasn’t allowed to shower and his skin was dry and dirty. He and 60 other men were crammed into an overcrowded holding area where they slept on the floor and were given only aluminum-foil blankets, he said. Some men had to sleep on the restroom area floor. Ticks bit some of the men and some were very sick, Galicia said. But many were afraid to ask to go to the doctor because CBP officers told them their stay would start over if they did, he said. I would remind you that concentration camps are actually real.  “I told them we had rights and asked to make a phone call. But they told us, ‘You don’t have rights to anything’,” Francisco Galicia said. This is happening.

He was held in "inhumane" conditions, he told me.

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. After years of domestic violence and neglect, Jones wrote in a personal statement that she suffered a psychological breakdown and did the same things to her own son, Brandon Sims. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sims was murdered back in 1992, but the details remain unclear, as the body was never recovered. Jones admitted to the crime two years later and was sentenced to 50 years.

@Regrann from @dp_mind.and.soul - Reposting @merciful.melanin with @instarepost_app - SavannaTomlinson (@trillaaxx) senior yearbook quote has gone viral. “Anything is possible when you sound Caucasian on the phone,” the Florida teen wrote for her quote alongside her picture in the yearbook. Tomlinson explained that she thought the quote was both funny and true and came across the idea when a comedian on Twitter posted about getting a free airline ticket, writing, “this is AMERICA. anything is possible if you sound white on the phone.” “He got a free planeticket and he accredited it to sounding white on the phone,” Tomlinson said. “At the time I thought it was funny and cute and it was also kind of accurate.” “It’s something that growing up AfricanAmerican you are thinking of and it is something that has relevance in today’s world,” she later added. “It’s a comical truth.” She said that she also considered the quote because she has seen it in use in her own life and workplace. “I work at MetroPCS, and when I’m answering the phone, I hear my tone of voice change,” she told the DailyNews. She insisted that it’s an unintentional and unconscious change: “You just do it.” Tomlinson’s original tweet showing her yearbook quote has received 200,000 retweets and likes combined. melanin loveyourself blackmagic blackisbeautiful foodforthought problack rbg blackexcellence blackwomenrock blackgirlsrock: Savanna Tomlinson's yearbook quote goes viral High school senior @MERCIFUL.MELANIN avanna T oml inson Anything is t you so on the ing is pos e phone, " Caucasian when @Regrann from @dp_mind.and.soul - Reposting @merciful.melanin with @instarepost_app - SavannaTomlinson (@trillaaxx) senior yearbook quote has gone viral. “Anything is possible when you sound Caucasian on the phone,” the Florida teen wrote for her quote alongside her picture in the yearbook.

Anyone who doubts that racism is still alive and well in America need only to look at the shocking text exchange between one white Arkansas father and his teenage daughter regarding her prom date. Anna Hayes, a high school senior from Lake Village, Arkansas attended prom last week with a male friend, Phillip Freeman — who happens to be black. When her father — whom she does not live with — saw the photos, he was livid, and sent her a long tirade of racist, sexist text messages telling Anna that he was disowning her and calling both her and her date heartbreakingly offensive names. .
