When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?

Thinking about You
Gonna get acupuncture done and do some meditation to quiet the mind-body. I’m sure it’ll help.
Today was a really good day, learned a few things in my production class and how to use Edge Reflow ( I hope fireworks dies soon lol). #goodday #boutToDoHomework #iAteFirstThen #thenTookASelfie #iLoveFood #murica
How come every other organ in your body can get sick and you get sympathy, except your brain?

My Spidey Sense Tingled
The last few months I betrayed my instincts, over and over again. This led to some of the great struggles I’m currently enduring. No longer will I fall victim to that. I have to move towards my self, and put things in working order regardless of what anyone thinks.
"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.
When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.
I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”
If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.
