"What? The litter box is full…"
My friend Maggie, at the young age of 34, just found out she has a twin, and now it’s up to all of us to help her find them!
I love a mystery!

This song made me so happy. Hearing a song that celebrates different brown skin-tones put a smile on my face. This song will really help children understand and appreciate the beauty of their skin.
I can’t wait to listen to this with my kids!
Thank you Sesame street.
"Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo’s skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita’s skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn’t skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in."
I <3 these kinds of messages in kids media. I may need to show this when I teach kids about diversity.
if you love yourself NEVER count how many comics you own and try to approximate how much money you’ve spent
#this makes me so upset #ppl tend to overlook effie #think she’s working only for the capitol #always wanting to please the capitol #and yes that’s what she started out like #but if you can’t see that something changed between thg and cf #you’re wrong #katniss and peeta were her first victors #the first people to come back to her #she’s so used to having no choice but to take these children from their families #spending time with them #and then watching them die as people cheer #katniss and peeta were the first ones she got to keep #she got to see again #got to stay with #got to tell how proud she is of them #how brave they were #they were the first ones that she saw live despite all the odds #and she loves them in her own way #now she’s being forced #by punishment of death #to take them back again #take them and live with them before sending them back into the bloodbath #saying goodbye as they head out to be put in the arena #and this time the chances are even lower #and she knows that #she knows that this is probably it #but she has to be the one to call katniss’ name #and it breaks her #she has to be the one to announce to everyone that she’s taking their mockingjay away and that she can’t promise she’s bringing her back #and if you can’t see that it hurts her #then i’m sorry #we’re watching two different movies (via darlingitscalledtrust)
Someone had to do this😜
84yo Asian American victim of NYPD brutality to sue city for $5 million
I blogged earlier this year about the story of Kang Chun Wong, the 84 year old Chinese American man who was brutally beaten by New York City Police Department officers after he was stopped for an alleged incident of jaywalking. Wong, who speaks predominantly Cantonese and Spanish, was walking on the Upper West side when he was stopped by Officer Jeffry Loo at the intersection of 96th and Broadway.
According to the NY Daily News, Officer Loo asked for Wong’s identification, which Wong provided. However, when Loo began to walk away with the ID, Wong — not understanding what was happening — protested. That’s when Loo, along with several officers pushed Wong against the wall of a building and then slammed him to the ground, bloodying his head. Witnesses were horrified, capturing graphic pictures of Wong being handcuffed and taken away.
Wong was eventually charged with jaywalking, along with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, however the Manhattan district attorney’s office decided not to prosecute the case.
Now, Wong — through his attorney Sanford Rubenstein — is suing the city and the NYPD for $5 million dollars.
