This is my favorite post of all time. Once you see this there’s no going back. Our government isn’t a government. Its a corporation. Our congressmen aren’t elected officials they are CEOs who buy their way into office.
ICT interview with Patrice Kunesh about USDA rural program
Indian Country Today interviews Patrice Kunesh, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe who serves as deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development at the Department of Agriculture:
USDA Rural Development has invested in tribal infrastructure, housing, education and health, both in grant funding and loans. Is there anything that tribe’s can or should be doing to take advantage of what Rural Development has to offer?
…NAN, why are you using a picture of Cody Trottier for this article?
Cody was a friend of mine from Rocky Boy. He only recently committed suicide. His family is still grieving. What does he have to do with USDA programs? Please take his picture down.
iconic video of my childhood
I still regularly quote this.
I can’t reblog this without providing a link in case anyone doesn’t know what this is. Because everyone should know what this is, I feel.
Albino Blacksheep. Oh my God I feel so old
(And wtf I was just thinking about this vid?)
THE MYTH THAT “MINORITIES” GET MORE SCHOLARSHIPS DEBUNKED SINCE 5EVER
This is something that comes up time and time again like clockwork.Here’s a”just the facts” post.
Racists LOVE this tired old saw. The problem is that it’s complete and utter bullshit, it always HAS been, and IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF REALITY.
Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population.
Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL NEED BASED SCHOLARSHIPS????
It debunks the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships. The reality is that minority students are less likely to win private scholarships or receive merit-based institutional grants than Caucasian students. Among undergraduate students enrolled full-time/full-year in Bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities, minority students represent about a third of applicants but slightly more than a quarter of private scholarship recipients. Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.
STOP PARROTING RACIST MYTHS INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY FACT CHECKING
So stop saying this shit. you’re just plain fucking WRONG. Also, racist.
Also check out this post. May I add that the vast, vast majority of scholarships go to middle-class whites. Poor people, especially poor People of Color, are scraping the bottom of the barrel. But hey, college is attainable for anyone and everyone with a dream, right?
WHY DOES THIS ONLY HAVE 428 NOTES?!?
723?!? GIVE THIS RHE NOTES IT DESERVES.
Isaiah 14:21: “Prepare for sons a place of slaughter for the iniquity of their fathers.”
Hosea 13:16: “Samaria shall bear her guilt, because she has rebelled against her God; their little ones shall be dashed in pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open.” (I want so badly to say something about pro-lifers here, but that’s for another time.)
Deuteronomy 22:24: “You shall take both of them to the gate of the town and stone them to death: the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help [while being raped], and the man because he violated another man’s property.”
Deuteronomy 22:20-21: “If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the bride’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death.”
Deuteronomy 25:11-12: “If two men are fighting, and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes the assailant by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.”
Matthew 10:34: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
1 Timothy 2:11-12: “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”
Eh, sorry. When Christians treat other people horrifically it definitely has a precedent.
Just get rid of the book altogether, think for yourselves, and stop being such jerks to people you don’t even know.
