Memes, Scare, and Soon...: Vampire Scare in Malawi Forces U.N. To Relocate lts Staff, After Vigilante "Vampire Hunters" Kill Five @balleralert Vampire Scare in Malawi Forces U.N. To Relocate Its Staff, After Vigilante “Vampire Hunters” Kill Five – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, the United Nations removed its staff from two districts in southern Malawi over vampire scares in the area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the vampire anxieties has left the region on high alert, and has sparked vigilante violence that has led to the death of five people. As a result, the United Nations announced that some of their staff has relocated in the wake of the vampire fright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it remains unclear how many staff members have been relocated, the UN Department of Safety and Security said it would continue to monitor the situation to “ensure all affected UN staff are back in the field as soon as possible.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, lynch mobs have murdered at least five people, after accusing them of vampirism. A similar incident linked to vampire rumors sparked in Malawi back in 2002. The return of the scare is believed to have come from neighboring Mozambique, although the reason remains unclear. However, a “temporary suspension of U.N. activities in the area until the situation is normalized,” has been recommended and a night-time curfew has been imposed.

America, Children, and Fire: Shaun King @ShaunKing Only in America can whiteness prevent the man who conducted the deadliest mass shooting in American history from being called a terrorist. 10/2/17, 8:01 AM li View Tweet activity 872 Retweets 1,446 Likes Note: This is being called the "deadliest mass shooting in US history." However, there have been several massacres of Native Americans by the US military and militias (Wounded Knee Massacre, Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, Tulsa Massacre in 1921, to name a few). The Wounded Knee Massacre was devastating — about 250 Native Americans were killed by American troops in the late 1800s. Only one man faced prosecution for the Mountain Meadows Massacre, but it was actually a Mormon militia that killed 120 men, women and children. The Tulsa Massacre ended with about 300 people killed by mobs of white people. People say the shooting in Vegas was the deadliest mass shooting because a gunman opening fire on a public space is what "mass shooting" has come to mean these days. We don't tend to put massacres involving military or quasi-military actors and those perpetrated by a group in that category. Before the 20th century, few mass murders were perpetrated by a single person. TLDR: The definition has changed over time. Whether or not you want to use this definition, it's important to remember Native history and the horrible massacres of this time, while also understanding the context and scale of the most recent shooting in Las Vegas.

Baller Alert, Elizabeth Eckford, and Memes: Today Marks The 60th Anniversary of the Little Rock, Arkansas Nine @balleralert Today Marks The 60th Anniversary of the Little Rock, Arkansas Nine- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's more than an honor to celebrate those who sacrificed their anonymity to serve as catalysts to promote change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On September 25, 1957, nine adolescents were caught between state and federal governments and authorities as they were attempting to desegregate Central High. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thelma Mothershed Wair, Minnijean Brown Trickey, Terrence Roberts, Carlotta Walls LaNier, Gloria Ray Karlmark, Ernest Green, Elizabeth Eckford and Melba Pattillo Beals were escorted into Central by U.S. Army Troops per President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Met with opposition from Arkansas governor Orval Faubus who called in the National Guard, these phenomenal individuals change the trajectory of history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Greeted by segregationist mobs and opposers, these nine persevered. Today we, Baller Alert salutes the Little Rock Nine. Their sacrifice changed history and although we have a bit further to go, their selflessness has brought us thus far. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At this time BA will like to acknowledge the passing of one of the catalysts. As the Nine embark upon the 60th anniversary, one member will be with the unit in spirit. Jefferson Thomas passed on September 5, 2010 from pancreatic cancer.
