Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capitol Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990.

A south Korean man cries as his brother is on a train back to North Korea. Separated by the war, they have not seen the other since 1950. They were allowed to see each other for three days, but one will go back spending life in luxury, and the other in hard labour

 The Mocambo night club in East Hollywood, a white’s only club, was the most popular dance spot around but would not book Ella because she was black. Marilyn, who adored Ella Fitzgerald and her music, called the manager and demanded that they book Ella immediately

Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

I hope you guys learned and teared up from this as much as I did. 

This is Earth-shattering. I mean, wow, to understand so much about the feelings people have gone through just from photographs. Some of these just had me in… I mean, shocked.


“1960”. Wow and people talk about how peaceful and tolerant Australia is

This morning, The New York Times published a piece declaring Ferguson shooting victim Mike Brown to be “no angel.”

Keep that in mind when you’re reading this Washington Post piece, which points out that Darren Wilson, who shot Brown, had been on a police force so tarnished by racism allegations—not unlike the ones already facing Ferguson’s police force—that it had to disband.

The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.

That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson.

On the left is a paragraph from the New York Times about Mike Brown’s “troubled” teenage years; on the right is a paragraph from Rolling Stone about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
What could possibly account for the difference in presentation of these two teenagers?
And let’s remember that one was unarmed when he was shot to death by a police officer who stopped him for walking in the street after allegedly stealing some cigars and pushing a store clerk, while the other was taken alive after allegedly setting off a bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer, engaging in a shootout with a host of other police officers, and then hiding from a full-scale manhunt.

There’s some line editor up in the Times building right now, pondering whether they did enough editing on this piece.
