America, Arguing, and Ass: kayla renee Follow @kaybaeparker Long story short, I got my racist Professor fired mid semester after she tried to sabotage me. Then I wrote about it RETWEETS LIKES 682 1,368 Imani Gandy e @AngryBlackLady Follow Dear white people: Allyship is more than wearing a safety pin or tweeting Black Lives Matter. If you read one thing today, make it this. kayla renee @kaybaeparker Long story short, I got my racist Professor fired mid semester after she tried to sabotage me. Then I wrote about it medium.com/@kaybaeparker/ RETWEETS LIKES 719 1,303 princessnijireiki: corvussy: saturnineaqua: ghettablasta: Kayla Renee Parker shared her story of how she managed to expose her racist teacher who appeared to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. “She wears a safety pin so everyone knows she’s an ally for minorities. Her cover photo has a Black power fist. She regularly discusses her love for the Obamas, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and her admonishment for this current administration.” However, it wasn’t enough to hide her racism.  It all started with a simple question from a test. The question stated,  “Historical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren’t important in African cultures where the slaves ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents. So, obviously, Kayla chose C. And it was incorrect. According to the teacher, the right answer was D. The argument started when Kayla wrote her an email and respectfully provided the professor the evidence, even directly from their textbook. “However, my Professor continued to argue that family bonds were not destroyed and that 2/3 of slave families were headed by two parents.” The teacher cited Herbert Gutman, sociologist, who died in 1985 and surely took part in the whitewashing of Black history. When they met to discuss the subject in person the professor gave Kayla books to read adding such statements as, “This book would be good for you to read. I believe it’s $6 so I could buy it for you if you’d like.” The stated that she spent her whole life fighting for minorities and something like “I’ve got Black friends.”  When the girl was proving her opinion, she heard more comments as, “You’re talking to someone who has spent their entire life fighting for people of diversity and marched with my Black brothers and sisters.” As the result, the teacher asked Kayla to lecture the class on the topic and that was her fatal mistake. Kayla took all her courage and made a presentation on the topic she was passionate about. She defended Black people and Black history. Here’s her presentation. That was the point where the story should end, but NO. The professor obviously forgot about privacy settings on Facebook and posted offensive comments about Kayla. The professor’s last words to Kayla were: This time The University of Tennessee stood up for the student. In July the teacher officially retiring from the university. This is fucking insane. The last paragraph of kaya’s story is everything: To my Professor, I forgive you for robbing me of my focus last semester. I forgive you for calling my Father, a graduate of Yale Medical School, “educationally challenged.” I even forgive you for threatening me. However, I do not forgive you for being willfully ignorant to the subjects you teach students. I also do not forgive you for claiming to be an ally. An ally is so much more than wearing a safety pin. It also requires that you listen to the needs of Black people and respect the issues that we raise. When a Black student raises a concern over the way you are portraying her history, referring to all you’ve done for Black people doesn’t change the fact that you’re portraying slavery as some kind of slavery lite. As an educator and as an ally, you are not expected to know everything but this does not abdicate you from the responsibility of always continuing to learn- even from your students. Additionally, if you wanted to actually help Black men and women, you’d value our words. Unfortunately, your actions simply mirror how America values Black people in today’s society. This Black girl is a hero who overcame her fear and faced her teacher defending Black people and Black history.  #StayWoke #BlackPride #StopRacists this is why…white women…cant teach black people, or people of color as a whole. White supremacy has a long history of setting up white women to destroy people of color namely black and native people) via education.  I was going through my old likes and decided to see if there was any updates in this story. The professor was arrested for assaulting Kayla in a grocery store but the charges were dismissed by a judge on the condition Morelock has no further contact with Kayla I couldn’t find any more recent news on Kayla than what was said in the second link, but I sincerely hope she wasn’t in any way negatively impacted because of the situation with Morelock, especially since the second link says there were multiple other faculty members that defended Morelock… this is why I do not and never will like white educators. Morelock also continues to post about Kayla on her public Facebook, but (probably for ongoing legal reasons) still can’t or won’t name her directly. You can’t underestimate people’s hatefulness the depth of their vindictive and petty fixations out here— even especially people in a position of power over you with the potential to harm you, “ally” or no. And Kayla seems to be doing well! Her FB page says she became a Director at Amnesty International, and has just moved forward to become a Canvass Director for Care.org. Folks will try to block your blessings and drag you down to their hater-ass level in the mud, but you gotta fight keep on shining. ☀️

9/11, America, and Dad: December 20, 2018 Dear Mr. President: I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens and our ideals I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the Department's business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to thos allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongsid us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof. Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model gaining veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions -to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades o immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department's interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional Dad’s resignation letter.

Dad’s resignation letter.

Beautiful, Books, and Energy: ..ooo AT&T 2:02 AM C * 31 % Instagram rh3tt.and.link 2h You were my ghost." When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only hange shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail So I know she forgives me, just as I forgive her. Thomas Edison's last words were: "It's very beautiful over there." I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful. <p><a href="http://thelyonface.tumblr.com/post/129575012858/that1guykaiser-asher-rose-cousland" class="tumblr_blog">thelyonface</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://that1guykaiser.tumblr.com/post/129574104314">that1guykaiser</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://asher-rose-cousland.tumblr.com/post/129573646217">asher-rose-cousland</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://that1guykaiser.tumblr.com/post/129569311064">that1guykaiser</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/129552906604">proudblackconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://that1guykaiser.tumblr.com/post/129552855779">that1guykaiser</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://proudblackconservative.tumblr.com/post/129552544854">proudblackconservative</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>*Laughs hysterically* <br/> What a bunch of pretentious teenage nonsense.</p> </blockquote> <p>Man I’m just trying to figure out what the fuck they are talking about</p> </blockquote> <p>I’m willing to bet the person who wrote this has literally no idea what they’re talking about.

I can’t even tell you what it’s supposed to be. I think you are right. I think some 13-15 year old grab nagged some words they thought were deep and threw them together in front of a picture of random celebrities (most of which aren’t teenagers in the first place) just to impress their friends. The person who wrote this probably has “poet extrodonare” in their inevitable tumblr description. </p> </blockquote> <p>It’s a John Green quote…</p> </blockquote> <p>Oh goody. So a grown experienced adult wrote it. Now it’s even more ridiculous and pandering.</p> </blockquote> <p>Is it a quote from one of his books? Because if it is, his ability to capture to simultaneous narcissistic angst and an overwhelming need to declare autonomy and independence that many teens feel and proclaim is pretty admirable tbh, because they’re teen novels with teen characters. If he means this honestly, I might puke.</p></blockquote> <p>It is a quote from one of his books, I believe. It serves as a shining example of why I don&rsquo;t read his books, although I will concede that he captures the self-important pretension of the &ldquo;teenage spirit&rdquo; perfectly.</p>

Customers are taking employees at face value, they don&rsquo;t give a crap about your history or how great you really are when you have a door knocker in your nose and a tie-dyed scalp. Employers are going to hire people they feel their target customer base will be comfortable with. This isn&rsquo;t rocket science. I live in a pretty hippie town where you definitely see way more tattoos and piercings among employees just because the culture we live in is more comfortable with it, but in a more suburban area that probably wouldn&rsquo;t be the case. You also tend to see more tats and piercings in an industry where customer interaction is less common, like if you&rsquo;re a trucker or a factory worker or something.</p>

Alive, Ass, and Church: Maybe you believe it this way because you are religious and I am not. AndI think that's the ultimate issue here.

Women are to be given spiritual and psychological support, as well as counseling to deal with the trauma of the attack. She is also treated for injuries while evidence is gathered to assist in the prosecution of the rapist. Finally, her progress in the potential pregnancy is determined.<span><br/></span></p> <p><span> ”A woman who has been raped may defend herself against a conception resulting from sexual assault. If, after appropriate testing, there is no evidence that conception has occurred already, she may be treated with medication that would prevent ovulation, sperm capacitation, or fertilization. It is not permissible, however, to initiate or to recommend treatments that have as their purpose or direct effect the removal, destruction, or interference with the implantation of a fertilized ovum.”</span></p> <p>Rape victims may prevent conception from taking place, but if conception has already occurred, then the child must live. </p> <p>Now this won’t make much sense unless we can agree that a fetus is a human being deserving of life, so lets look at why that is. </p> <p><span>The fusion of sperm and egg membranes initiates the life of a sexually reproducing organism, and <a href="https://www.lozierinstitute.org/full-disclosure-blurry-or-broken-language-and-the-beginning-of-human-life/?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=Feed%253A+lozierinstitute+%2528Charlotte+Lozier+Institute%2529#_ftn3">by definition</a>, the beginning of the life cycle for mammals. </span></p> <p><span>The government’s<a href="http://www.merriamwebster.com/medlineplus/fertilization"> own definition</a> attests to the fact that life begins at fertilization. According to the National Institutes of Health, “fertilization” is the process of union of two gametes (i.e., ovum and sperm) “whereby the somatic chromosome number is restored and the development of a new individual is initiated. </span></p> <p>This new organism has its own DNA distinct from the mother and father, meaning that it is neither part of the mother nor part of father. As the embryo grows, it develops a heartbeat (<a href="http://www.ehd.org/dev_article_unit4.php">22 days after conception</a>), its own circulatory system, and its own organs. From conception it is a new organism that is alive and will continue to grow and develop as long as nutrition is provided and its life is not ended through violence or illness. At this point the fertilized egg contains the full genetic code of a human being. If you still believe the “science to be settled” in favor against life at conception, well <a href="http://www.naapc.org/why-life-begins-at-conception/">many brilliant scientists and doctors</a> would disagree with you. </p> <p><span>You don’t have to be Catholic to believe in their definition of life, I believe it is very accurate from a scientific, moral, and humanitarian perspective. Anon, you seem to disregard fetal life because it has not yet </span><em>valuable</em><span> human life, but it is human life. Also,</span> even if there was no official consensus, shouldn’t we “play it safe” and not abort a life in question if we are unsure of it’s humanity?</p> <p>The time of fertilization represents the starting point in the life history of the individual. Life begins at conception. A human fetus, after all, is simply a human being at a very early stage in his or her development. I believe it is wrong to take innocent human life under any circumstances. I hope that cleared it up a bit. </p> </blockquote> <p>&ldquo;when i look at it as it needs to start developing human qualities&rdquo;</p> <p>You realize that this sort of mentality led to genocide and brutality, right? Because some people deemed other groups as people as not human and not possessing ‘human qualities,’ rendering them as property and problems, rather than people.</p> <p>The anon is fucking delusional and needs to crack open a textbook. It’s all about biogenesis: a living organism reproduces after its own kind.</p> <p>&ldquo;it’s the beginning of life, not life itself until it matures further&rdquo;</p> <p>You need to have your head so far up your ass to say this sort of stupidity. A fetus satisfies the 6-7 requirements (depending on where you’re getting the info) to be classified as a living organism. It HAS life.</p> <p>If a panda was carrying a baby, the moment that sperm and egg united, it’s a panda, and no less, not a “blob of cells.” It’s a panda in the early stages of development. The same goes for fetuses-they are human beings in the early stages of development. </p> <p>This sort of biologically inaccurate and mental gymnastics needed to justify taking away millions of human lives pisses me off. </p> </blockquote> <p>Also to throw my two cents in: I often hear the ridiculous argument that in order to qualify as ‘human’ they must first be coginitively aware of their self as human. I hope you all realise that the development of cognitive memory - what helps us identify ourselves as distinct from ‘others’ and to remember events and feeings - does not develop until a child is 2/3 years old. Furthermore, that qualification then renders those with severe mental handicaps as ‘inhuman’ because they do not possess normal cognitive functions. That’s straying into some serious ‘ableist’ shit you sjws whine so desperately about. By requisite, that argument suggests we’re allowed to kill off the severely disabled and the very young - those who could be considered not ‘useful to society’. Genocides start when you dehumanise humans and seperate them from what’s considered ‘useful in society’. </p></blockquote>

She is also treated for injuries while evidence is gathered to assist in the prosecution of the rapist. Finally, her progress in the potential pregnancy is determined.<span><br/></span></p> <p><span> ”A woman who has been raped may defend herself against a conception resulting from sexual assault. If, after appropriate testing, there is no evidence that conception has occurred already, she may be treated with medication that would prevent ovulation, sperm capacitation, or fertilization. It is not permissible, however, to initiate or to recommend treatments that have as their purpose or direct effect the removal, destruction, or interference with the implantation of a fertilized ovum.”</span></p> <p>Rape victims may prevent conception from taking place, but if conception has already occurred, then the child must live. </p> <p>Now this won’t make much sense unless we can agree that a fetus is a human being deserving of life, so lets look at why that is. </p> <p><span>The fusion of sperm and egg membranes initiates the life of a sexually reproducing organism, and <a href="https://www.lozierinstitute.org/full-disclosure-blurry-or-broken-language-and-the-beginning-of-human-life/?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=Feed%253A+lozierinstitute+%2528Charlotte+Lozier+Institute%2529#_ftn3">by definition</a>, the beginning of the life cycle for mammals. </span></p> <p><span>The government’s<a href="http://www.merriamwebster.com/medlineplus/fertilization"> own definition</a> attests to the fact that life begins at fertilization. According to the National Institutes of Health, “fertilization” is the process of union of two gametes (i.e., ovum and sperm) “whereby the somatic chromosome number is restored and the development of a new individual is initiated. </span></p> <p>This new organism has its own DNA distinct from the mother and father, meaning that it is neither part of the mother nor part of father. As the embryo grows, it develops a heartbeat (<a href="http://www.ehd.org/dev_article_unit4.php">22 days after conception</a>), its own circulatory system, and its own organs. From conception it is a new organism that is alive and will continue to grow and develop as long as nutrition is provided and its life is not ended through violence or illness. At this point the fertilized egg contains the full genetic code of a human being. If you still believe the “science to be settled” in favor against life at conception, well <a href="http://www.naapc.org/why-life-begins-at-conception/">many brilliant scientists and doctors</a> would disagree with you. </p> <p><span>You don’t have to be Catholic to believe in their definition of life, I believe it is very accurate from a scientific, moral, and humanitarian perspective. Anon, you seem to disregard fetal life because it has not yet </span><em>valuable</em><span> human life, but it is human life. Also,</span> even if there was no official consensus, shouldn’t we “play it safe” and not abort a life in question if we are unsure of it’s humanity?</p> <p>The time of fertilization represents the starting point in the life history of the individual. Life begins at conception. A human fetus, after all, is simply a human being at a very early stage in his or her development. I believe it is wrong to take innocent human life under any circumstances. I hope that cleared it up a bit. </p> </blockquote> <p>&ldquo;when i look at it as it needs to start developing human qualities&rdquo;</p> <p>You realize that this sort of mentality led to genocide and brutality, right? Because some people deemed other groups as people as not human and not possessing ‘human qualities,’ rendering them as property and problems, rather than people.</p> <p>The anon is fucking delusional and needs to crack open a textbook. It’s all about biogenesis: a living organism reproduces after its own kind.</p> <p>&ldquo;it’s the beginning of life, not life itself until it matures further&rdquo;</p> <p>You need to have your head so far up your ass to say this sort of stupidity. A fetus satisfies the 6-7 requirements (depending on where you’re getting the info) to be classified as a living organism. It HAS life.</p> <p>If a panda was carrying a baby, the moment that sperm and egg united, it’s a panda, and no less, not a “blob of cells.” It’s a panda in the early stages of development. The same goes for fetuses-they are human beings in the early stages of development. </p> <p>This sort of biologically inaccurate and mental gymnastics needed to justify taking away millions of human lives pisses me off. </p></blockquote>

Baked, Chill, and Christmas: 14:25 63% taylorswift 01h 219475 likes taylorswift Chai sugar cookies with cinnamon eggnog icing AKA Christmas in September. view all 4230 comments spinninglikeaswiftie I LOVE YOU TAY!I WOULD LOVE TO BAKE WITH YOU! rhyse: taylorswift: imnotsomefloozy: taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪 MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this. The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.Pow. Done. OR If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe. http://joythebaker.com/2009/06/giant-vanilla-sugar-cookies/ ***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE*** I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons —-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE. I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control. If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you. Why? Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake. Bye. did taylor swift really just show up out of the blue on tumblr only to drop some betty crocker shit on us what the fuck
