Sunday Snippets: Superbowl Sunday

None of my teams are playing so I will be Netflixing it, avoiding the next snow storm. I'm the life of the party, I tell you.

Disgusting (TW racism/physical injuries)

Oh, just follow the rules, right?

What does it show? An unarmed Reid with his hands up, in compliance with the officer’s orders, shot 9 times by to officers.

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Fucking awful Yet again, we are just supposed to be brood mares. Not wanting children is A FUCKING LEGITIMATE PATH TO TAKE.

A lawsuit filed on Thursday against Corrections Corporation of America, the largest private prison management company in the US, alleges that a visitor at a South Central Correctional Facility in Clifton, Tennessee, was forced to expose her genitalia to prison guards to prove that she was menstruating after she attempted to bring a sanitary napkin into a visit.

What the hell?

Last night Native students and staff left the rez to attend a Rush Hockey game, it was meant to be a reward and a night of fun. Instead the students AND staff were harassed by white men sitting in the VIP box and beer was thrown on them. They were told to “go back to the rez”. No Natives deserve this treatment.

Nobody was talking about this. Shameful.

In America the most comprehensive and intelligent news is provided by comedians on the Comedy Central channel while those channels purporting to be actual news stations are laughable - yes Faux/Fox News & CNN in particular. It’s no wonder that American politics is so fucked up.

This needs to always be a thing

All the feels-Adopting Shelter Pets

YES. Exactly

Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)

Disgusting #BrownLivesMatter

Aww, snuggly puppies and kitties

TW for domestic violence

Yup, pretty much!

Awww, poor koalas
