A black man rides a bus restricted to whites only, in Durban. In an act of resistance to South Africa’s apartheid policies, 1986.

look at their faces. upset that this black man dared to exist in their space

It’s sad how terrified he looks.

the fear in his eyes man :/ 

not even “their space”. Europeans invaded South Africa, separated Black people from their own country and dared to be aghast at their want to considered humans. This was just 28 years ago, guys!! 

Don’t let the black and white picture fool you. These are recent, even current events.

most if not everyone in this picture is still alive

we live in a world where pizza gets to your house before the police.

That’s because the pizza guy has consequences if his job is done incorrectly.

Oh snap


Think about how many people you come across each day. Think about how your actions affect them, whether positive or negative. Think about the perceptions of Islam they receive from you and your actions. And remember that the ultimate goal is your salvation…and theirs. 

So act accordingly. Portray Islam the way it deserves to be portrayed.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.



Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.

gonna reblog this till I stop tumbling


Almost 260,000 people, half of them young children, died of hunger during the last famine in Somalia, according to a United Nations report yesterday which admitted the global body should have done more to prevent the tragedy.

The toll is much higher than was feared at the time of the 2010-2012 food crisis in the troubled Horn of Africa country, and also exceeds the 220,000 who starved to death in the 1992 famine. “The report confirms we should have done more before the famine was declared,” said Philippe Lazzarini, U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Somalia. “Warnings that began as far back as the drought in 2010 did not trigger sufficient early action,” he said.

Half of those who died were children under five, according to the joint report by the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the U.S.-funded Famine Early Warning Systems Network.

“Famine and severe food insecurity in Somalia claimed the lives of about 258,000 people between October 2010 and April 2012, including 133,000 children under five,” said the report, the first scientific estimate of how many died. Somalia was the hardest hit by an extreme drought in 2011 that affected over 13 million people across the Horn of Africa.

‘Political failures’

“An estimated 4.6 percent of the total population and 10 percent of children under five died in southern and central Somalia,” the report said, saying the deaths were on top of 290,000 “baseline” deaths during the period, and double the average for sub-Saharan Africa. Philippe Lazzarini said that about 2.7 million people are still in need of life-saving assistance and support to build their livelihoods.

Famine was first declared in July 2011 in Somalia’s Southern Bakool and Lower Shabelle regions, but later spread to other areas, including Middle Shabelle, Afgoye and inside camps for displaced people in war-ravaged Mogadishu. The United Nations declared the famine over in February 2012.

Famine implies that at least a fifth of households face extreme food shortages, with acute malnutrition in over 30 percent of people, and two deaths per 10,000 people every day, according to the U.N. definition. The aid agency Oxfam said the deaths could and should have been prevented. “Famines are not natural phenomena, they are catastrophic political failures,” Oxfam’s Somalia director Senait Gebregziabher said.
