4 Year Old Foils Babysitter’s Robbery Plot - Video

Let’s just blame the black guy…

believe a little girl in 30 seconds but won’t believe the black man after 5 hours….lol ok.

Says a lot.

It really does. I think it’s wonderful that she told that truth however, this is a prime example of white privilege. At 4 years old, she actually had systematic power over the fate of a Black male. White privilege is a very real and impactful thing.

I know that this story is heartwarming in it’s own way. Yes, the 4 year old has more in the way of ethical fiber in her pinky than her babysitter has in her whole body. Yes, it’s case closed on a wrongfully accused case that could have had very serious consequences for the neighbor involved…

but there’s something really chilling about an otherwise law abiding citizen being arrested and questioned in handcuffs for 5 hours on the casual implication of a 17 year old. 

Here for the comments, especially the last one.

When they say Africa is poor…

Africa’s wealth is getting stolen by the West.


Keep Palestinians living in Gaza in your prayers. They are looking under rubble for their loved ones or burying them all while watching the skies for their own safety.

Remember those in West Bank and present-day Israel, some of whom are living in fear of being kidnapped and burned alive, like 17-year-old Mohamed Abu Khdeir was, or attacked simply for being Palestinian. 

The above photos were taken today after family homes were pounded as Israel continued its aerial bombardment of Gaza, killing at least 15 Palestinians - including children - and wounding 100.

Never stop searching for the truth and never stop spreading it once you find it. Hell will freeze over before Western media does so it’s down to us.

This point can never be repeated often enough.

Boarding schools used Native appropriation to embarrass, degrade & exercise control over Native children. Native appropriation is an extension of the federal government’s assimilation and termination policies to ‘kill the Indian and save the man.’


Those nuns’ smug faces contrasted against the children’s. It breaks me.

In case anyone was wondering why this post isn’t so much funny as it is just horrifyingly true
Or kind of like how I spent probably like 2000 bucks so white men could teach me the history of my own fucking people
Or how I had to explain to my own fucking white sister why it wasn’t okay for her to make money dressed up like an “Indian Princess”
Or how my white ex-in-laws fucking accused me of being a pothead for smudging my fucking room and used that for grounds to kick me out (with no other place to go), which was traumatic enough that I never fucking did it again
Or how last week at work I had someone literally tell me they thought addiction to tobacco was Native American’s “revenge” for genocide, because we’re extinct now or almost because “you don’t see a lot of them these days”, and killing “us” with cigarettes is “their” revenge
This photo is a picture of what it feels like to be a ghost
A fucking ghost in your own native land.

Scuffle Over Native Warbonnet Leads to Unreasonable Detainment at Giants Game





Tonight was Native American Heritage Night at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants vs Padres game. There was a group of mostly white guys that were passing around a headdress. I went over to one guy and asked him to take it off, and after much convincing that is was disrespectful he agreed to take it off. Minutes later, another guy in the group has it on. Another native guy sitting next to me went over with me and as we were attempting to explain to the group of drunk guys why it wasn’t ok - especially on Native Heritage Night - security gets calls. I started crying because I was so upset that people are idiots/the genocide of our people/cultures and the guy asks/yells at me because he’s getting embarrassed and flustered “what do you want from me?” so I said “give me the headdress” and he did. Security shows up and are some sad ignorant people of color that couldn’t comprehend what was happening and demanded I give them the headdress back because the “native” friend the group came with showed up and wanted it back and called police over. At that point I was like YOU CAN ARREST ME IF YOU THINK I’M GOING TO HAND THIS FAKE ASS CRAFT STORE DISRESPECTFUL HEADDRESS BACK TO SOME DRUNKEN WHITE GUY AND SAD TOKEN. So me and my friend get ushered back to the food stands and are getting kicked out. 2 cops ripped the headdress out of my hands and refuse to tell us if/why we are being arrested and why we are being asked to leave. then one tough guy cop goes “if you’re not going willingly we’ll make you” and 2 cops grab me by my arms and twist them and pull them up behind my back so far I think they are going to pop out of socket. we walk about 40 feet and I’m squirming and yelling the whole way that they’re hurting me and then one of them grabs me by my hair and throws me on the ground. as I’m getting cuffed i see my friend (who was recording all this) laid out on the ground with 4 cops on him. they take us out of the game and let us go an hour later because they had ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO ARREST US. I am beyond disgusted at the guys at the game, the people (including native around us who said nothing), the giants security for allowed that “headdress” inside to begin with, the police, and the San Francisco Giants organization as a whole for trying to host a heritage night without some type of cultural sensitive training. I’m not big on my tumblr game so I could appreciate any help spreading the word about this and holding the team accountable and hopefully providing evidence for the native mascot issue that is under heavy media attention and fire right now. Thanks! April

Lol they probably just saw the guy sitting there with a headdress then just roleplayed out the rest in their head without getting up and actually foing anything because they probably didn’t even have the balls to do it, so now they feel guilty about not actually saying anything and had to make up a story for attention to make themselves feel better.

you’re right i don’t have the balls. i have the vagina to do it.


my friend (who was recording all this)

Mind having your friend post that to youtube or elsewhere?  If you want to call these cops out for mistreating you that would be pretty much all you need.  Of course the cops will still lie even with video evidence against them.

i dont know how to work the internet like that… but heres my friend that got “detained” as well’s blog with links to dropbox with all those http://bighorse.net/post/89740986519/how-the-san-francisco-giants-celebrate-native-american
