"#200. I’ve recently learned I’m a Latina, Mediterranean, and Italian girl. It hurts that my white family, including my also adopted (but not biologically related to me) sister, all deny this from me. I want to learn more about my heritage, but I don’t even know if it would make me fake or not. Adoption is not bad; it can be absolutely wonderful. I just wish people who adopt or have adoptees in their family would let them learn about their heritage if the adoptee wants, and not make them feel like they have no right to. I don’t even know what I am. I’m just tired of people asking my parents or sister who I am or if I’m a family friend because unlike them, I have olive skin and dark curly hair."

HOW IS THERE A GIF IN THIS SCREENSHOT I FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE

Do you really think a screen shot is powerful enough to stop Beyonce from flipping her hair?

UGH SHUT UP AND STOP CRITICIZING OUR GENERATION FOR WHAT CHOICES OUR FUCKING ANCESTORS MADE. NO WONDER IT NEVER ENDS. OUR RIGHTS ARE ALL EQUAL NOW, SO LET IT DIE. BE KIND TO DECENT PEOPLE, AND FUCK EVERYBODY ELSE. THERE ARE SCUMFUCKS IN EVERY RACE, COLOR, AND CREED.. THAT PART IS UNAVOIDABLE.

Shut up about us getting murdered??? What? If it ain’t all of you then it’s a whole damn lot. We’re getting killed for existing rn and all you care about it your feelings.

"Are rights are all equal,now."
Are they really?

I’ll get over slavery when people let go and forget about 9/11

White people are so angry for no reason

"Our rights are all equal now" <— White people never cease to crank out gems such as this. 
Make no mistake about it, NO ONE is criticizing you for what your ancestors did, we are criticizing you for what you all are doing now..


But alas..we have to shut up. Okay..

soon as she pressed post she knew she fucked up

There’s still an elephant in the room here. It’s called generalization. Yes, some scumbag white people did some racist shit. They ripped apart families and I can’t even relate to that pain. That, however, is NOT an excuse to hate all white people and take it out on those who are innocent. For years now, a vicious cycle goes on where whites attack blacks and then blacks hate whites even more; thus provoking further attacks. The snake keeps eating its own ass. Racism is uncontrollable and it’ll never go away unless we as a SOCIETY can come together and eradicate those ideals. Of course I know I’ll draw flak from speaking my mind, but fuck you this is America.

This bitch just equated actual oppressing and killing to hating because of oppression. Y’all kumbiya bitches really be willfully ignorant.

no one on this post said let’s hate all white people. Get over yourself.

"

We had a lot of trouble with Western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.

"I would have given her away to a serial killer, I was so desperate."

American mother on her 12-year-old adopted daughter.

From When Children Are Traded, published November 20, 2013 in The New York Times.

(via brandx)

I remember reading the Reuters investigative report on foreign adoptions gone wrong this year - there are white people who repeatedly adopt foreign children or buy them underground online.  I still think about that article every day, and this quote or something similar to it appeared in many parents’ mouths - that they wouldn’t mind having someone kill their children than have to spend another minute with them.

(via writeswrongs)

But to racist Americans trying to silence adoptees and POC when we shed light on yet another case of adopted child abandonment, this growing cesspool of child trafficking and abuse counts as “POSSIBLY NOTHING

U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum




"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.”

J was sent to live with another family in the Midwest. Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”

Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.

white people will let their white kids karate chop them in the throat and call them names in public, but a black child becomes naturally upset after you treat the kid like a grown criminal/animal and you just give them away. go it. sounds reasonable.

"i’d get the most horrified stares"geewonder why

This is why we don’t trust y’all white savior “oh check out this profile pic of me and these smiling poor brown children. You can tell I really made a difference” asses

The fact that for the most part these people are allowed to do shit like this with no legal punishment or recourse on behalf of the children being abused is mind boggling.

She literally treated that child like a dog.
Actually no, she’d probably treat a dog better.
Accidents like that happen all the time with children, and her first instinct is to stop loving the child and give it away?
I can’t.
I hope that beautiful boy is okay, and with a family that treats him like gold.

Welcome to the adoption industry where they give zero fucks about the well being of the child.

YOU GUYS DIDN’T EVEN TRY TO LOOK INTO THIS FURTHER.
HERE’S ANOTHER ARTICLE THAT GIVES THE ENTIRE STORY AND NOT THIS CHOPPED UP ONE-SIDED BULL SHIT.
Look, right now I’m gonna ignore the fact that the only results I got when Googling the picture were Tumblr pages (meaning unless I have the original source of the picture it MAY OR MAY NOT EVEN BE RELATED to this story), but that DOES NOT EXCUSE THE FACT THAT WHEN IT COMES TO POSTS LIKE THIS ONE YOU ALL NEED TO DO YOUR RESEARCH AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE GOING ON A RAMPAGE OVER WHAT MAY BE POSSIBLY NOTHING.

Funny how these racist nobodies froth at the mouth in their genuine belief that Good Housekeeping (a ridiculous bourgeois American trash mag) somehow counts as a credible news source when it comes to white Westerners trafficking children.
Also funny how the aforementioned &#8220;entire story&#8221; fails to even mention America&#8217;s institutionalized child torture in the name of treating &#8216;attachment disorder&#8217;, the trafficking and abduction of children in the name of &#8216;Christianity' (the fact that Stacey Conner went to Haiti as a missionary is enough to tip off any educated person), and the fact that the U.S. DOES NOT CONSIDER CHILD TRAFFICKING TO BE A CRIME international OR domestic.
New followers, welcome, and feel free to have a good laugh at this shitbrained American weeaboo momijihyuga804, to whom the industrialized human trafficking &amp; child abuse of white America is &#8220;possibly nothing.&#8221;

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
