Forest Whitaker was frisked at a store in NYC on Friday after an employee accused him of stealing. He was frisked in plain view of everyone. Of course, the pat down produced nothing. The employee then reportedly beg the Academy Award winning actor not to tell store management in fear that the episode would cost him his job. Forest, in turn, asked that the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner in the future. See, not even an Academy Award can stop a Black man from being criminalized. Liberated from NewsOne.

the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know about the commodification of chinese women

Afong Moy.  Her name was Afong Moy.  Say the names of people who should be remembered.

"Columbia Univeristy senior Emma Sulkowicz plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size to every class, every day until the man she says raped her moves off campus. Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found "not responsible" in all three cases."

Beyond ‘No Means No’  by Jessica Valenti for The Guardian

Yessss my sister is everywhere!

The rapists name is included in a columbia spectator article as Jean-Paul Nungesser and they’re refusing to remove it which is good! this dude clearly doesnt need any more protection from consequences of his actions. If Emma has been forced to reveal herself as a victim of the attack to try and get something done about it then he deserves the same lack of privacy. 

At the college in my town they use to have red hands painted where sexual assault had taken place. It got so bad that they painted over them because and quote “The prints have been causing parents and students to feel uneasy, prompting their removal, according to [name removed], the director of Housing and Residential Life and assistant vice president for Student Affairs.” http://mustangnews.net/redhandprintsremovedatdorms/

Which is complete bullshit. Of course they’d make people uncomfortable but it also makes you think! This is a problem and it needs to be made aware.

Black people in England and Wales are 7 times more likely to be stopped by police than white people. Asians are twice as likely. The vast majority are ordinary people guilty only of being the wrong color.

What are the stories behind the statistics?

Learn more about the human cost of stop and search.

But I thought England was the beacon of anti-racism. This just can’t be.
