A blog about me being myself. Expressing my thoughts and feelings, and letting you see what I am like as well.
y’all, at some point, ignorance is a choice. racism is definitely a choice. and no amount of fact spittin is going to change a hateful heart.
those people have to want to change. so stop arguing with them. stop frustrating yourselves.
How to deal with annoying guys. 〜 kA!To.
Oh yeah, there’s something I need to talk to you about. Hey hey hey hey hey. Kaito.
parents: “u should be more active”
So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”
They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.
Look at this
Protests are happening in the Central & Western District, the Wan Chai District and the Kowloon District of Hong Kong since 22nd September, since Beijing withdrew their promise of universal suffrage for Hong Kong. These protests were meant to be and are PEACEFUL PROTESTS.
Yet police in riot gear are attacking crowds of UNARMED pro-democracy student protesters and protesters from the Occupy Central movement (a civil disobedience movement aimed at achieving universal suffrage occurring in Hong Kong). At least NOW TV, BBC NEWS, and APPLE DAILY have confirmed that pepper spray and rubber bullets are being fired at demonstrators and there is tear gas being launched into crowds and it’s spreading INSIDE the Central MTR station.
Judging from all the photos and Apple Daily news reports I’ve seen, there are police stationed at Lippo Center, outside Lan Kwai, and Jordan + Tung Chung MTR stations look entirely closed off to everyone but the police. There are protesting crowds in Causeway, in Mong Kok on Argyle Street, in the HKAPA and Gloucester Road + Nathan Road are FILLED with protesters.
Hong Kong is no longer safe. Central has been paralyzed.
There’s a live feed of everything that’s happening here.

I thought yellow was for troops?
It is. But it’s also for Spina Bifida Awareness. Sometimes different awarenesses share the same colors. That’s why there are two blues and three purples!
