The first shows Laverne Cox, a beautiful Black trans woman with long light colored hair seated, head tilted, across from CeCe McDonald, a beautiful Black trans woman seen from behind, as they speak. The second photo is a shot of a row of prison cells. The third is a picture of CeCe McDonald speaking with the back of Laverne Cox shown.]
FREE CECE, the new documentary with Laverne Cox, explores the roles race, class and gender played in CeCe McDonald’s case. McDonald’s claim of self defense was rejected by Hennepin County prosecutors. The documentary explores the implications of CeCe’s story as a survivor, housing trans women in male prisons, and the practice of keeping trans women in solitary confinement.

Post -Racial AmericaYes this is happening in 2013Just last October 2012 a story broke out nationally about Black Students being attacked with Balloons filled with Bleach at the University of Texas. Protests broke out across campus. The concept of these attacks were to “whiten” students of color.Bleach Balloons were also thrown at Asian students. These attacks were racially motivated. Well last week 5 days ago on August 21st, 2013 another Black student was hit with a bleach balloon.Byran Davis was walking by an apartment building on the west campus of the University of Texas when he was hit with a balloon filled with bleach. Luckily he was uninjured. Byron stated “”I don’t feel safe walking around West Campus by myself anymore.”
"Davis contacted the Austin Police Department, who said they’d put a detective on the case. Davis’ friends have told him not to hold his breath though; no prosecution has come from APD’s attention. Many students see no point in reporting the attacks when nothing has been done to stop them, Davis said.
That means there are many bleach bomb attacks in West Campus we don’t know about. The concept behind them is to “whiten” students of color. Bleach also blinds people. Luckily, no one has been blinded yet in West Campus. The very real possibility is hideous” (Burntorangereport.com)

This is a prime example of why I am NOT interested in staying in Texas for college.
I want to fucking kil every racist person who utilises violence to demean other people. How will they like that?
How does this only have 300 odd notes? People need to now this shit. This is fucking ridiculous.

Virgo horoscope for Sep 12 2013 The color of a chameleon can change according to its environment. It’s a kind of self-protection. It picks up the color of the leaves or the tree bark, and it hides in plain sight. You know someone who seems to be the human equivalent of a chameleon. This individual seems to change to please whoever he or she wants to impress. It may seem like a kind of deception, but it may not be deception at all. Just like the chameleon, it could be how this person becomes defensive - it might be a way to fit in and to battle low self-esteem. Offer the benefit of the doubt. — Copyright © DailyHoroscope.

((You guys don’t know steampunk until you head on over to this awesome little slice of heaven over here in Baltimore. This is a repurposed power plant that was built in 1900 that was converted into a Barnes and Nobel. It boasts a good selection of books, has the obligatory Starbucks inside with an awesome view of the city, but also has a really neat and informative aquarium that features wildlife you’d find in the bay! This is one awesome looking place to read. If you guys ever visit me up here in Maryland, we’d totally visit this Barnes and Noble.))
