You’re in love with him, and he’s in love with you, and it’s like a goddamn tragedy, because you look at him and see the stars, and he looks at you and sees the sun. And you both think the other is just looking at the ground.
This is so sad. :(
so young….Call me sensitive, but watching things like this makes me tear up. I used to be like this.
baby no :(
"Kids don’t notice race!!!"
a number of factors had to play a part in this girls outlook of race. this kind of thing is taught. Guardians, Friends, Education Systems, and Media are all things that could have caused her to look at this.
stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.
The way I think of the term “tattle-tale” is when a kid purposefully is telling on another kid to get them in trouble for their own gain. Like “Jimmie took Sally’s toy” when in reality Sally was done with the toy and tattle taler just wanted the toy for himself.
I agree with the overall sentiment of this post though. If a kid has done something genuinely wrong that is not ok, then any and all kids should tell adults. Period.
I raise my eyebrow at the 60% fewer homicides figure. I can readily admit I’m ignorant, but what was the link between marijuana and homicides? I get some dropoff, but 60% seems high.
