    "We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves." 

    (Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

    For those who are interested, here’s the firsthand account from the Amnesty observers’ team, who are still in Ferguson, of what they experienced last night. You can also find some of the personal Twitters of the team members on that page.

    If you’re just catching up, this is Amnesty USA’s press release from when they first dispatched observers (their own link is broken) and a more personal blog post from a member of the delegation.

    what i’ve learned from being a jew on this website is that not only will non-jews not consider anything short of “all jews should be killed” antisemitism, but when people actually do say things like “all jews should be killed” or “jews deserved it” or “jews need to be taught a lesson,” it’s still somehow not antisemitism, and it’ll be reblogged uncritically by hundreds of people.  you could practically be reading from the protocols and wearing a swastika armband, but so-called “anti-racists” will still defend you to the death because “those zionists think that everything is antisemitism.”

    Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed, poor black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a high school athlete shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

    I read this fact to my sister “Men with shaved heads are perceived as an inch taller and 13% stronger than men with hair.” and then I said “Yeah! Have you ever seen a short man with a shaved head?”

    And my sister thought for a few seconds and said “A baby”

  14. tributary:

    the problem with “don’t trust the (mainstream) media” isn’t that the mainstream media is always 100% trustworthy because that’s the opposite of true. the issue is that nontraditional media, which isn’t subject to standards of quality control, gets elevated to the status of fact and misinformation can spread easily. basically don’t trust.
