I’ll admit it. In grade 9 I was the little shit who wondered why there was a black history month and not a white history month
But then I took history in grade 10 and it all made sense and I felt like a right knob because history class is basically 100% white history
So before you go thinking that white people are being oppressed go learn some shit like I did you ignorant fucking shitwipes
Have a good day
-Something I wrote probably 5 months ago, but it is much more relevant now.
I’m still appalled at myself for being that fucking idiot. This is why history classes need a reboot and actually teach kids more than just what white people did, and also what exactly oppression means and how people are affected by it.
We can’t keep letting children grow up ignorant of what is going on and what is so wrong with society, because they are growing up to be ignorant adults and the vicious cycle continues.
A 16-yr-old African American boy was sexually assaulted by a police officer during a “stop and frisk” pat-down. The assault was committed with such violence that the youth’s testicles were literally ruptured.
Now, Darrin Manning of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania may never be able to father children, according to the doctors who performed surgery on his virtually destroyed testicles.
Darrin was a star basketball player with no criminal history to speak of. He was a straight-A student who never got into any sort of trouble. He was with his teammates heading to a game right after school when he encountered an officer who decided he was “suspicious” and needed to be subjected to local “stop and frisk” procedures.
Though no official reason has been given for the stop and frisk, Darrin and the other (uniformed) members of the basketball team who were stopped suggest it was because they were wearing scarves over their faces to protect against the extreme cold Philadelphia, like much of the country, has suffered this winter.
Darrin was put in handcuffs. When the officer began “frisking” him, they grabbed hold of Darrin’s genitals so hard, pulled and twisted, that the teen’s genitals literally tore off.
“I felt the officer reach and grab my butt. Then the officer grabbed my testicles and squeezed again and pulled down. And that’s when I heard something pop, like I felt it POP,” Manning said.
The incident has left the 16-year-old with felony charges of assault and resisting arrest.
“I’m just grateful that they just didn’t kill him,” said Darrin’s mother.
