I need a reality check, folks.

I shared something on Facebook today that was written by an indigenous American where they stated that using the term "spirit animal" was cultural appropriation and we should stop using it. I then had two white folks argue that it wasn't really because intentions are magic and because it was such a common idea, anthropologically speaking, that we weren't really appropriating anything and besides spirit animal is English and that's not the language they spoke so why are they offended?

Am I making an issue out of nothing? I tend to take the word of the native American who made the assertion over the two white people but I need to be sure.

These two answers are perfect. I want to give them more pluses.

"You know, going into this weekend, the media was consumed with stories, Americans have to be on the lookout for ISIS attacks and terror attack expected, and oh, shark attacks," Coulter declared. "I will bet you by the end of the weekend, more Americans will have been killed by Mexicans than by ISIS or by sharks."

So now I am more dangerous than shark attacks and ISIS combined. Fear me.  
Conservative author Ann Coulter over weekend compared shark attacks to Mexican immigrants, who she concluded were much more dangerous.

Pfft! If I found out I was African I'd be tickled. People are so ridiculous. I really need to get a genetic test done.

X posted because I'm curious if anyone here has been following this. What are your thoughts on the matter? 
Many fans had their faith in Ani DiFranco restored today when she finally said "I'm sorry" — while many fans lost faith in much of Ani's fanbase, who continue insisting she did nothing wrong.

She did finally really apologize but a lot of her fans stayed stupid.

Have you all seen that there's a kerfluffle about the #BlackGirlsAreMagic  hashtag on twitter?  Apparently someone is complaining about it being too sexualized or something.  I'm still trying to follow.

These motherfuckers right here are the reason I can't stand cops. I also can't stand folks who freak out just because OMG THERE ARE TOO MANY BLACK PEOPLE IN ONE PLACE!

I hope whoever called the cops on a birthday party is proud of themselves.

Um? To clarify, when I say what were "they" doing on someone's private property by "they" I don't mean the kids. I mean the police. It states clearly in the linked article that the kids were invited. I don't see anywhere in the article where the police were invited.

I certainly did not mean that kids put on their bathing suits and invaded someone's property. I meant that the police ought to be seeking the authorization of the person who lives in the location and organized the party before invading a pool party.

Police shouldn't get to just bust into my house if I'm throwing a party, even if the neighbors complain. They can come to my door or my gate and ask to speak to me. That's how it should be handled. Just wading into a party that you weren't invited to and throwing your weight around because you are a cop and apparently think that gives you an all access pass to everywhere is wrong.

I apologize if that wasn't sufficiently clear.

This is some bullshit.
The morning of February 12, 2015, Austinite Sergio Lejarazu was driving past his small business, a piñata and bouncy house store called Jumpolin at 1401 E. Cesar Chavez Street, on his way to drop his daughter off at school. That’s when he noticed something strange. Jumpolin wasn’t there anymore.

Just now heard about this thanks to Son of Baldwin on Facebook.
Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw, a former Eastern Michigan University football star, was arrested Thursday on serial assault charges.

Something we Chican@s need to remember is that our history and the history of African Americans are intertwined. Los pueblos unidos jamás serán vencidos.

The following is a summary & analysis of Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review article, “Law of the Noose: A History of Latino Lynching” by Richard Delgado. SUMMARY Delgado attempts to shed light on a largely unknown history of Latinos, particularly Mexican-Americans in the Southwest U.S., who were lynched between the years of 1846 and 1925. This is roughly the same time that many Blacks were lynched in the U.S., as well. While ma...

+Marie Camacho funny, I randomly learned about Black Mexicans...my colleague in the 1990s told me about wherever he was from (Veracruz, I think), Guerrero, and marimbas over lunch one day.  I knew about the instruments, but not much else

Have you all been following this? What are your thoughts? I had a disagreement with someone about who thought people were just being unnecessarily hateful and full of rage. side eye

I just have to remember to do that myself when I get in situations that warrant it. :/ I'm guilty as hell of not being able to back down sometimes. Pride is a real bitch. :/
