2nd most profane and 3rd most courteous.
In Maryland, we will ask you to please fuck off, and thank you when you do.
most likely to fucking curse and least courteous.
stay classy ohio, stay classy.
Wtf… Massachusetts. 2nd least likely to curse and 2nd least courteous. I’m so proud?
Where the fuck did this come from? Massachusetts not cursing? Bullshit!
Don’t get me wrong. I love Boston. I’ve lived in Massachusetts my entire life.
But I think instead of the One Fund, we should start a fund for all inner city victims of tragedy. Nobody created a fund for the families and the victims of the New Orleans Mother’s Day Parade shooting. How about all the other (non-white) people that are victims of tragedy? What about children that get shot in their schools, but no one bothers to report about it because it’s not a “tragedy” if they are living in a city/minorities? Where’s the fund for them? Who will want to give them money, if their parents are said to be “welfare queens” or not mentally ill, just a POC?

Nineteen-year-old Tarikuwa Lemma is a survivor, of an international adoption scandal. When she was 13, she was effectively sold from her native Ethiopia to an American family. The corrupt “adoption agency” convinced her father, who was a widow, that Tarikuwa and her younger sisters were headed to the U.S. as part of an educational exchange program, and that they would return home every summer and on holiday breaks. Little did he know, his daughters had been placed with adoptive couples in the U.S., never to return. Tarikuwa’s name was changed against her will, and she was forbidden by her American “family” from speaking her native language. The issue of transnational adoption, its evangelical Christian component, and the exploitation of communities that sometimes results, is the subject of the book, The Child Catchers: Rescue, Trafficking and the New Gospel of Adoption by Kathryn Joyce, who appeared, along with Tarikuwa, on last Sunday’s “Melissa Harris Perry” show on MSNBC. Below is Tarikuwa’s satirical look at the “rescue” of children from her home country, to “better lives” in America.

Doesn’t seem to matter the background of the child, the methods of colonialism and assimilation haven’t changed.
Sometimes my hair styles itself and i like that
It’s an excellent day for free stuff. I have two different razors coming my way , a 10 month subscription to Inc. Magazine, and a free personalized mousepad on which I put a photo of my cat.
