WHAT IF MY COLORS ARE DIFFERENT THAN YOUR COLORS

They are, because people having varying numbers of Rods and cones in their eyes, it causes people to see colours differently.

Also there is a theory that everyone sees, for example, the colour red differently eg Red=yellow, but because we’ve been taught that, that specific colour is red, no one knows if everyone is seeing the same colour as another person.

Last week, a quiz from 1985 that purported to show how “upscale” your neighborhood has become provided a delightfully dated reminder (“Unisex Hair Salons” and “Travel Agencies,” anyone?) of just how long gentrification has been lamented and bougie brunch spots have been laughed at.
Figuring that our era of inexplicable “general stores,” urban B&Bs, and ubiquitous Traders Joe nonetheless deserved an updated version, Curbed LA went ahead and put one together, and though it was made with Los Angeles in mind, it could be applied almost anywhere in America.

East Liberty has all of the above.
Our rent has gone up in my building and the landlord hasn’t improved on a damn thing.
But I got these new white neighbors that don’t speak to me and use the fire escape like it’s a stairwell for everyday use.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Wait so is he being falsely accused or what i have no idea whats up

Unlikely, considering less than 2% of all accusations of rape and other sexual abuses are estimated to be “false”.  He’s got at least thirty-nine women accusing him of this —it is statistically more likely that one of these women is actually a ham sandwich than it is that any of them are making false accusations against him.

but then why is there a fundraiser for justice for him? I’m just genuinely confused in this situation.

And where’s the fundraiser for the 8 women that have to live with what he did for the rest of their lives?

They havent released their names as of yet. However I do look forward in to donating to help them!

In the mean time, I hope that his pages get shut down. Please report them!!

The devil is so busy.

Our community spends a lot of time discussing the divorce rate. Is success just staying together? Perhaps it would be more beneficial to shift the focus from just “preventing divorce” to “building strong marriages”.

Yasmin Mogahed (via islamicrays)

Or we should discuss the circumstances surrounding why black marriages that we admire in the olden days remained.

A lot of grandmothers stayed through abuse, alcoholism, not being able to find work or go to the schools they wanted. They stayed through being cheated on. They stayed through their husbands coming back with PTSD and untreated syphilis. They stayed through their husbands having completely separate marriages and families that they didn’t know about until much later in life.

Also the stigma of divorce was major back in the day. As was the stigma of being on wed and married. Girls were married as teenagers or sent away if they were pregnant. To avoid either some would throw themselves down flights of stairs to have abortions.

So no, the marriages that we admire. The marriages of grand parents and great grand parents are not tales of romance and long lasting love. They are testaments to what it was to be a black woman in America in those times. You couldn’t just get a divorce or shack up and not get shunned or denied employment and public mockery.

Thank you! I have an example of almost each of these riddled throughout my family history. So…yeah…they stayed together and I suppose they “loved” each other…but to what end, and at what cost?

I look only to my parents for marriage advice, and even then I take it with a grain of salt. 

Nostalgia.
