Today marks 14 years since Muhammad Al-Durrah, the 12 year old Palestinian boy was killed by Israeli forces as his father tried to shield him.

For 45 minutes Israeli forces fired as Jammal Al-Durrah tried to shield his son shouting “Don’t shoot” before they were both eventually shot, Muhammad fatally. A paramedic was killed and another wounded whilst trying to assist them.

I remember watching this on television as an 8 year old. The words “Mat el walad” or the boy is dead screamed by people surrounding them still resonate in my ears.

Today, Muhammad would have been 25.
We will never forget.

Never forget

"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

image

image

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media. 

image

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.

How the Egyptians Did Math

sixpenceee:

So if you list out the double of numbers starting from 1 (1+1=2, 2+2=4) you can sum up every single number out there

image

1+16= 17

image

What if we wanted to do, something complicated like 17x25?

image

Double the 2nd number. So 25+25=50, 50+50=100, and so on

image

Circle the corresponding numbers. So 1 pairs up with 25 since they are on the same line. Same goes for 16 and 400.

image

Add up the numbers on the right side. 400+25= 425. 17x25 also equals 425. 

image

Watch the rest of the video for how they did division. You may also like this post on why the Chinese number system may make learning math easier & faster

Let’s remember, Jesus was a Jewish man of color, born homeless to an unwed teenager, who spent his formative years as an illegal immigrant before returning to his home country to hang out with twelve men, prostitutes, and socially untouchable tax collectors while he taught a radical social doctrine of equality, love, and forgiveness that included paying taxes, free healthcare, and the sharing of resources within a community.

canon Jesus is better than fandom Jesus

Lmao, fandom Jesus

I’m Not Watching All-White Movies Anymore
When you do the math it just doesn’t add up.  A movie costs about $13.75. Plus parking and snacks.  On average, I’m spending about $25 every time I go see a movie.  I usually see a movie at least 4 times a month.  That’s $100 a month.  Multiply that by 12 months and I’m spending $1200 a year on movies alone.  That’s rent money.
I’m wasting rent money on these films that purposefully exclude me.  Why would I do that?  That’s completely insane.  
If I took that $1200 every year and put it in my savings account I could invest in my own original content.  I wish I’d thought of doing this years ago.  I’d probably be directing a feature film by now.  But as they say, there’s no time like the present.

I haven’t been able to really enjoy all-white movies/shows in years.  If we all started doing this, Hollywood would actually have to listen and start casting with diversity and maybe even :gasp: make shows and films featuring all/almost-all POC.

This Icelandic police force has the most adorable Instagram account 

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.

There’s more where those came from | Follow micdotcom

For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.

Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]

Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that. 

I want to go there 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
