Adopted girl says mother forced her to dig her own grave
(Photo: Reuters)
A Tennessee woman says that when her adoptive parents gave her away to new parents at age 14, she and 17 other adoptive kids in her “nightmarish” new home were sometimes forced to dig their own “graves” in the backyard and scrub the floor with toothbrushes.

Editor’s Note: Today’s stories are the first in a series of online and broadcast reports on adoption by Reuters and NBC News.

“’Get out and go dig your own grave,” Nora Gateley, now 26, says her new mother told her. “’I don’t care if you die. Nobody will find you. You were not even here in the first place.”
…An investigation by Reuters in partnership with NBC News has uncovered an underground world of “re-homing,” where parents give their children to new caretakers, sometimes people they have met only over the internet, with little or no government oversight….Nora had to wear a brace on her leg for her polio, and says that Debra would sometimes take it away. “She took my brace numerous times … as punishment. So I [couldn’t] walk.”
“She said, ‘You can run away for all I care and I’ll let the coyotes out there eat you,’ ” recalled Nora. “’Nobody knows you were here anyway.’”
Sometimes, claimed Nora, Debra would punish the children by forcing them to dig their own “graves,” leaving holes “everywhere” in the backyard. Sometimes she made Nora supervise the other children as they dug, and at least once Nora was made to do it herself.

Very neat & nifty! White Americans fetishize PoC (in a helpless, malleable state), buy us up, own us, realize we are unique entities with our own minds and energies—most decidedly UNlike puppies after all!—flip the fetish and act out the racism in the privacy of their own home. Creeeepy. Very, very sick, folks! Kind of like a Silence of the Lambs home scenario, but with racism, to boot! Wow!

I will be amazed if any of these sociopathic motherfuckers see any real consequences.

Kill them all. Kill the whites.

I’ve been reading this Reuters series all week and it is devastating how many American families purposefully gave their children to known child-molesters and domestic abusers.  And some of it was for the most trivial of things - one family detested their 5-year-old Chinese son because “his ears and feet were too big.”
Quote from a Nebraska mom’s internet “ad”, who gave away her 11-year-old Guatemalan son: "I am totally ashamed to say it but we do truly hate this boy!"
Or this washington single mother of 7 adoptive children, who used government subsidies to support her obsessive collecting of foreign and locally born adoptees:   "I couldn’t stand to look at him anymore," Mueller says today. "I wanted this child gone." This, of a black boy she had adopted only three years earlier, now ten.

had to shut a bitch down today

And that’s how public shootings and school shootings and shit like that happen. I’m not saying that this dude is not creepy as fuck, but this is not the way to handle this! He didn’t say anything mean (on purpose), and when you shut him down like that how the fuck do you think he’s going to react? He must know he’s somewhat creepy, but when a complete stranger that he adores tells him so vividly how creepy he is, that must wreck his world. I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised if he bought a gun (legally, but that’s a different issue) and went in to the store he knows you fucking work at. Just be nice to people fuck.

Alright, you know what? I don’t want to reblog this post. I want this post to die. And I have never once reblogged to reply to someone else’s comment on this post. But this one? This one I’m fucking gonna, because how. dare. you.

Are you seriously one of those slimy, inhuman grease traps of a human being who blame VICTIMS OF SHOOTINGS FOR THE FUCKING SHOOTINGS

Don’t you EVER come at me and try to tell me that I need to be responsible, personally responsible, for the mental satisfaction of the kind of monsters who would do something like that. Don’t you ever tell me I have to let myself be uncomfortable around people who LITERALLY STALK ME and put on a big smile and let them down gently because in your twisted little brain it is MY JOB TO KEEP THEM FROM KILLING PEOPLE

H O W   F U C K I N G   D A R E   Y O U

YOU are the problem. YOU are the kind of person who justifies that kind of senseless violence by saying WELL IF SHE HAD JUST GIVEN HIM A CHANCE

IF SHE HAD JUST FUCKED HIM

IF HE HAD JUST ‘GOTTEN SOME’

HE WOULDN’T HAVE RAPED HER/SHOT THEM/DONE IT

Are you fucking proud of that? Are you proud that that’s the tiny drop you choose to drop into society’s bucket? 

I don’t care if it ‘wrecked his world’ when he was called out on his socially unacceptable, disgusting behavior. I don’t caaaaaaaare

His actions are HIS actions. His actions are HIS fault

the next time I see a tragedy like the elliot rodger shooting on the news, I’m gonna think of all the vile comments from people online that say it all could have been avoided if the people he threatened and menaced would just relinquish their bodies and their comfort and their personal space for him, and I’m gonna  s e e   y o u r   f a c e  and I hope you fucking know it.

Don’t you ever talk to me. I am sick to my stomach over your fucking bullshit.

Love this

Did you know that the Pakistani national anthem was written so as to be intelligible in both Persian and Urdu?  
The Pakistani national anthem is known alternatively as “Qaumi Tarana” or “Pak Sarzamin,” and the lyrics were composed in 1952 by Hafeez Jullundhri.
The fact that it is intelligible in both languages reflects the wide overlap in vocabulary in Urdu and Persian due to nearly 5 centuries of use of the Persian languages’s across the Subcontinent.  Prior to the 19th century arrival of the British, the Persian language was the language of literature, poetry, culture, and science across South Asia and was widely studied as a second-language and as a regional lingua franca.  
Under the Mughal Empire, it was the sole official language,” and although it was gradually replaced with English by the British, Persian language and literature has remained an important part of the region’s cultural heritage. In Pakistan today the language is still studied by some of the educated elite as a second language, while about 1% of the population speaks Persian natively.

Quite more than 1% but, yes, all of this.

Lavender Lemonade

4 tbsps (1/4 cup) culinary lavender*
2 cups boiling water
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
2 cups cold water
* Culinary lavender is lavender harvested for the purposes of cooking/eating. Please don’t buy the perfumed air-freshening kind because that is going to be utterly gross. Steep the lavender in 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the lavender. Place the lavender tea and the sugar in a small saucepan and set over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves (you don’t have to put it over heat, but I do this because I’m impatient and want the sugar to dissolve faster and completely). Remove from heat and let cool to warm. Stir in the lemon juice. Stir in the cold water. Add more to taste. I prefer to keep mine on the concentrated side because I like to mix it with seltzer water when I serve it. Serve over ice. Makes about 6-8 cups depending on how dilute you want it.


My friend actually made lavender lemonade before and it’s delicious. Not sure if this is the same recipe, but stillllll

reblogging for the recipe

why the fuck else would you be reblogging

To poster directly above: could just be reblogging for the pretty picture. Also, I want to know how the photographer got it that color, because mine never comes out that color.

Stepmotherland: Minorities, Blasphemy and Pakistan

Last year in March, an entire Christian settlement by the name of Joseph Colony was burnt in Lahore by an angry mob, as a reaction to a blasphemy allegation against one Christian man called Sawan Masih. 

This is a short film/documentary that presents the real story of Joseph Colony and Pakistan, through the eyes of the actual victims of that horrific incident alongside a priest, a lawyer, and a daring social activist who managed to find hope in the most impossible situation. 

We would, very profusely, urge every Pakistani to watch it and share it for only one reason: it has something very important to say about Pakistan and us, things that we all seem to be too scared to talk about.

I hate when people comfort the privileged. Like, no. I want you to be fucking uncomfortable. I want you to take notice of the people being killed, raped, beaten, alienated because of their identity. I want you to think about how the system favours you and what that means for others. I want you to reevaluate your actions to make sure youre actively working against the systemic oppression of others. If you’re comfortable, then youre in the wrong.

Anonymous said: How does it hurt PoC to have white people take part in their culture? Wouldn't it make people more accepting if we weren't telling them they're not allowed to even wear some clothes or eat a food? "Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we're not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures.... Thus creating ignorance......

gigglesandanixi:

thisisnotjapan:

Uh, way to miss the point entirely.

As we (and others) have stated time and time again, there’s no problem with a white person eating a food from another culture or wearing a traditional garb when it’s in an appropriate situation. 

What’s not okay is taking a traditional garb and during it into a costume. What’s not okay is bastardizing a language or aspects of a culture and altering it so it’s more consumable to white people. That is what hurts POC. 

""Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we’re not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures"

That’s literally not what this means at all.

If you’re too dense to understand this very basic concept then you are way beyond our help. 

Don’t you love it how they always try to make it into a question of ownership?

Like, “Why can’t I HAVE you?”

"white people would like/treat you better if you just let them do what they want with you, god"

can’t they learn anything without that knowledge coming at our expense?
