blue-author: turakamu: lennybaby2: lanie-love09: micdotcom: This white woman’s shocking account of police brutality reveals the importance of the #BlackLivesMatter movement Molly Suzanna shared a story on Facebook that she had never told before: when she was 19, she ran a red light while crying, then was pulled over and forcefully removed and beaten by a police officer. She explains in the letter that she believes her situation would have been even worse had she been black — and she ends the letter with an important call to action. The public needs to hear more stories like this as well. Wow. This is horrifying. Cops are drunk on power. Add any ism to that, you have a bunch of abusive, gun wielding, trained to kill, non empathetic, killers running around. This woman got hauled out of a window, beaten, stripped, tortured, and humiliated, and she still is able to understand how white privilege saved her life. : blue-author: turakamu: lennybaby2: lanie-love09: micdotcom: This white woman’s shocking account of police brutality reveals the importance of the #BlackLivesMatter movement Molly Suzanna shared a story on Facebook that she had never told before: when she was 19, she ran a red light while crying, then was pulled over and forcefully removed and beaten by a police officer.

The History of WWII 1938-1945: IF WORLD WAR II WERE A BAR FIGHT (revised) Still sore from the night before, Germany is nevertheless found patronizing our favorite bar. Having had one too many pints, Germany is sucking up to Russia, not wanting to pay for the drinks that France insists it owes. Germany and Russia drunkenly shout that Austria is their brother, man, and also that they and Italy go way back. Sauced now and belligerent, Germany glares angrily about the bar. Italy is already marching around, challenging everyone to step outside. Japan is in the back room whacking China with a pool cue. America left the bar some time ago. With nothing better to do, Germany challenges Russia to an arm-wrestling match at Spain's table. The pub pays attention. Satisfied, Germany returns to the bar to order another pint, and one for Austria too. Glancing over at Czechoslovakia, Germany says, "Hey, nice shirt. I want it." Czechoslovakia, offended, stands up to take a swing, but Britain gets between the two saying, "Can't we just get along? Come on now, Czechoslovakia. Just the shirt, that's all." Humiliated, Czechoslovakia hands over the shirt. Britain walks back to its corner table with France and says, "See? Peace in our time." At the other end of the pub, Italy's finally found someone to fight: It kicks Ethiopia in its goolies as it walks in. Germany raises its pint glass to Italy. Germany then looks at Russia, who's wandered back in after checking on Japan in the back room. Both look over at Poland who's been sitting by themselves at a small table next to theirs. England and France give Germany a stern look, and England wags a finger at Germany. With an "Aw, shucks" grin at England, Germany turns and knocks Poland's beer off its table. Poland stands up to confront Germany, beckoning for England and France to come over and help. Russia taps Poland on the shoulder, and when Poland turns to look, Germany grabs a chair and smashes it over Poland's head. Russia repeatedly kicks Poland, now coughing on the floor, while everyone watches. Germany turns to England and France, gesturing "Come at me," but England and France slink back to their table, continuing to utter threats in low voices. Denmark, Norway, Holland, and Belgium just popped in for a quick one after work but are now worried. They finish their drinks in a hurry and yell for the bill. Finland, so far unnoticed by anyone, noticing Russia is distracted going through Poland's pockets, sneaks up behind and smashes a bottle of vodka over Russia's head. Russia gets up, shakes its head, grabs Finland by one arm, and tosses him against the wall, knocking him out. Russia then goes back to their table in the far corner and sits down to sulk. Japan takes note, and goes out back to make sure China's still out. England is now texting Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India, telling them to get down here right quick and by the way, could one of them pop in at the United States' place and see if he can come over with a baseball bat. England then walks over to stand by France, who is now in the middle of the room confronting Germany, Italy, and their mates. Denmark, Norway, Holland, and Belgium finally settle their bill and head for the door. Germany crosses the room rolling up its sleeves, picks up a bar stool, and hurls it toward Holland, who, attempting to dodge, ends up tripping and hitting its head on a table. The stool strikes Belgium squarely on the head, while Germany, not missing a stride, punches Denmark and then Norway, knocking them all out. The pub still in shock, Germany grabs all their wallets and tosses them on a table to sort through later. France, upset that its little cousin Belgium has fallen, rushes over to take a swing at Germany. Italy, finally done going through Ethiopia's pockets and now seeing France on the move, sticks out its leg. France trips, and although recovering quickly, Germany has picked up an entire table and brings it down over France's head. France is knocked out for several hours and upon waking appears to be schizophrenic, arguing with itself in a corner. Outnumbered and alone, England barricades itself behind the bar and begins tossing empty pint glasses at Germany, hoping the kids will show up soon. Germany and Italy begin sorting out the wallets. In a corner booth, having witnessed what just happened, Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania stand up and declare that Germany and Italy are their new best mates and buy them a round. Across the street the United States is getting concerned about the noise and broken windows. It wants to go over and take a look, but dinner just came out of the oven. While Germany is busy counting its spoils, Italy decides to pick a fight with the Balkans Football Club, who have somehow gone unnoticed all this while. The BFC, being tougher than they look, offer Italy a few heavyhanded smacks to the face. Italy runs behind Germany and peeks out from behind Germany's legs. Germany turns around at Italy, "WTF!" Fortunately, best buds Romania and Hungary come to aid Germany in sorting out the BFC. Germany looks around the pub, which is in shambles. England continues to yell threats from behind the bar, where Canada is too, passing over fresh stacks of pint glasses to toss. Germany hears another cry for help from Italy, who is now being smacked about the kneecaps by Australia, New Zealand, South Africa. Apparently, Italy was rifling through Egypt's pockets when England saw, and the kids arrived. Germany and looks about for better allies. The United States is just about finished with dinner, when it hears a noise in the backyard. The United States looks over just in time to see Japan smashing the Tiki-themed patio set, evidently for suggesting Japan had too much to drink the other day. The United States is very upset about its Tiki-themed patio set, and heads down to bar. Meanwhile Japan eggs the Netherlands' house and moons Australia, as it heads back to pick on China some more. As Germany makes its way to help Italy, it makes eye contact with Japan, who is stretching and cracking its knuckles, giving Germany a knowing nod. Japan sees the United States at the doorway, puffs its chest and marches across the ocean of spilled beer. The United States, still laughing at the scene, almost doesn't see Japan about to swing a broken table. The United States reels backwards and bumps into Germany. Germany promises to take care of the United States once it's taken care of the Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Japan, meanwhile, turns around and starts applying the broken table on poor Netherlands, who had just woken up and was cowering on the floor. The Philippines walks out, vowing never to return. India, trying hard to mind its own business, gets splashed with beer. Having dealt with England's children, Germany walks over to Russia, hands outstretched in greeting. Russia takes them and gets rewarded with Germany's boot to the nads. Having no love for Russia, Finland, Hungary, Italy, and Romania all pile on. Bloodied and dazed, Russia backs off into the storeroom. England whispers something to Canada. Canada sneaks across the room and swings a bottle at Germany's head. The bottle fails to break, and Germany turns around and connects a punch to Canada's nose in one continuous motion. Canada retreats, but continues to keep a steady supply of pint glasses flowing. Australia and New Zealand get panicked calls from their wives: Japan appears to be lurking in their gardens. They dash home. Germany goes looking for Russia in the storeroom, and notices by a walk- in freezer with hanging loops of sausage and scnitzel. Hungry and excited, Germany calls over its new friends, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Finland, and Ukraine, when it opens the freezer door to find Russia. Things don't go well Russia. Italy, having decided that beating up Ethiopia was training enough to punch someone in their own weight class, decide to take a swing at England. Italy is quickly stripped of its disillusionment. Italy's cries for help go unheard, as Germany is still in the freezer. The friendly bartender Switzerland calmly watches the scene devolve, dishtowel in one hand, drink in the other, ducking the occasional pub projectile. The bartender from the last shift, Sweden, has been hanging around, handing out brass knuckles and selling weapons licenses to any and all sides, quite fairly and neutrally. The United States, Canada, and England finally jump Italy together and knock it unconscious. South Africa, New Zealand, and the recently-woken Poland join together to rain blows on Germany until it begs for mercy. Brazil from down the street arrives and jumps in, as does France, now recovered from its corner. Italy and Germany finally surrender. Japan shows its face again, but the United States had already contracted the help of some engineers at the end of the bar, anticipating this moment. Having heaved a piano over the second floor railing, the engineers land it squarely on Japan's head, making a deafening noise that rocks the entire establishment. The United States asks the engineers to prepare another piano, in case Japan gets up. With Japan's surrender, the barfight is concluded. Germany appears to have developed a split-personality disorder. Russia eventually checks out of the ICU and starts building its own pianos. OFUGLY.COM The History of WWII 1938-1945
