This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.

If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.

this is really fucking sad
i think of everything we learn without even noticing

You make me think of happy things even on days when I’m destined to be sad.
The thought of you can change someone’s mood in a heartbeat
& your voice can make someone’s heart beat fast enough for them to think that they are having a heart attack; you’re the kind worth having a heart attack for.
From what I know, you don’t like your body. And to me that’s totally fine, i don’t like my body either. We’re the same in a lot of ways.
I bet you love the thought of being in love.
I bet that you love when people play with your hair.
I bet you stare at yourself in the mirror and get lost in the imperfections and you count all the things you wish you could change. But if you did, then you wouldn’t be you. And someday someone’s gonna fall for this you. One day you’re going to meet someone who loves you for all the same reasons that you hate yourself. And even the slightest words coming from his mouth are going to sound so different than if anyone else had said them.
And you will be loved; not because you changed yourself, but because you found someone to love you just the way you are.
The day I realized you where my happiness// (via nothing-basic)

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

SO fucking sad. Humans are a fucking virus. I wish I wasn’t one.

I ran through the cemetery at 2am the other night, with a misfit group of gents. One gloriously reliving his adolescents, telling me we should act like kids and marvel at the quiet dark, at sneaking into the place where our dead rest. We held hands and walked in step with each other.
