Text: Especially with #Ferguson all over social media, here’s my pet peeve: People who complain about racist family/friends without actively confronting them. Unless you’re depending on this racist for your livelihood, e.g. living in their home or relying on their income and they could cut you off, CALL THEM OUT. That racist aunt you visit maybe 3 times a year is posting about “thugs”? Send her facts. Show her the hypocrisy of her words. Don’t just let it go because you don’t want to “cause trouble”, THIS IS THE TROUBLE. And this applies to non-black POC. Recognize the anti-blackness in our communities (Asian Americans, you have a big responsibility in this) and do something about it. I always say no one is obligated to educate strangers that pop up demanding a breakdown of race relations, but if you consider yourself an ally yet can’t even confront that guy from high school you keep around on Facebook? I call bullshit.
this is great
1 in 3 people would rob a bank if they knew they could get away with it.
The largest bank robbery in U.S. history was in 1997 when $17.3 million in cash was stolen from a vault in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Other than the animal, the English word “pig” also refers to baked clay, or pottery.
People would often save money in pots and jars made of pig, called “pig jars”, which then evolved to “pig banks.”
