Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

Don’t get too high and mighty, ladies. Don’t step out of line. Don’t do anything to upset or disappoint men who feel entitled to your time, bodies, affection or attention. Your bared body can always be used as a weapon against you. You bared body can always be used to shame and humiliate you. Your bared body is at once desired and loathed.

I want to do a rom-com with Melissa McCarthy. I even told her that at an awards show, and she said ‘Yes, Let’s do it!’

10/10 THIS

I actually adore her because I’ve NEVER seen a black person get to be so fucking frank and honest about racial injustice on tv.

She’s real, she’s smart, she’s witty, she’s informed and she’s fucking unapologetic. I’m obsessed.

Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.

This is important.

Steve Doocy, Asshole of the Day for September 8, 2014
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
When the video of Ray Rice assaulting his wife in the elevator first surfaced, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith suggested that women should try really hard not to get beaten. As though it’s anyone’s fault that someone beats them. ESPN suspended him, we named him Asshole of the Day. And hoped people would stop saying stupid things like this.
But then TMZ released the video today and it was a new opportunity for stupid comments, this time over at Fox & Friends:

“We should also point out, after that video — and now you know what happened in there — she still married him,” host Steve Doocy explained. “They are currently married.”
“Rihanna went back to Chris Brown right after [he assaulted her],” co-host Brian Kilmeade noted. “A lot of people thought that was a terrible message.”
“I think the message is take the stairs,” he added, as co-host Anna Kooiman giggled.
“The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera,” Doocy concluded.

Look, assholes, domestic violence is no joking matter. And laughing at the victim is pretty ugly.
And to Steve Doocy’s first point, it doesn’t matter whether she married him after this happened— that doesn’t excuse it or make it legal. But I suspect his point is to laugh at the victim for marrying Rice.
The really offensive part is where he says the message is to take the stairs, where there’s no camera. Because then the domestic violence goes unrecorded. Even as a joke, this is way over the line. And that is why Steve Doocy is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Steve Doocy's first time as Asshole of the Day, joining a long line of assholes featured here from Fox News.

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.
