Where's the Outrage?!?


It's no secret to me that the lives of white people are valued more than the lives of POC (people of color) in Society but that doesn't numb the stinging feeling I get whenever I see another example of this.

On Friday, September 26, the end of a week in which thousands of copies of Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West — the fear-mongering, anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail — were distributed by mail in Ohio, a “chemical irritant” was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, where 300 people were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service. The room that the chemical was sprayed into was the room where babies and children were being kept while their mothers were engaged in prayers.

Huh, I'd really would love to hear why the Media hasn't been going ape shit crazy over this? This has obviously has a lot more to do with religion than race but I guess the victims of this weren't "American" enough to warrant attention. If this had been a Christian church being attacked by any other group this shit would be making laps around the media circle.

Just gahhhh. Killing people is bad enough but it disturbs me 1000 times more when the actions are born out of pure ignorance.

It's just so fucked up, they were just kids...

No problem. Getting the word about this is the least I could do.

My photo
Valentina= a 18 year old girl with an intense love for life, color and style. My family is my life and I’m having a torrid affair with television and loving every second of it. I like my school and I love my friends and I’m learning to love myself too. I love playing around with clothes but I haven’t found the patience yet to be able to keep up with actual fashion. This is a me blog where I’ll write about my life, my outfits and anything else that comes to mind. "It is absurd to divide people into good & bad. People are either charming or tedious." — Oscar Wilde)
The vast majority of the photos I use on this blog are not mine. Whenever possible I will credit photos but in some insistences this isn't possible. For example I have a collection of un-credited photos saved on my computer. So unless otherwise noted the photos on this blog are not mine. If you see an un-credited photo and it's yours (or you know who it belongs to) let me know so I can either take it down or give you credit.
