Speaking of Phylicia Rashad... 

thatladytk:

I couldn’t believe no one mentioned that during that Oprah’s Next Chapter segment she couldn’t relate AT ALL to those black women as an actor struggles the other women were talking about and experienced. She was side-eyeing everything that they were saying as if it was truly a post-racial society….

Emails reveal Michigan prisoners regularly served maggot-ridden food, forced to engage in sexual acts for food
Seven months after hiring an outside contractor to feed prisoners in state prisons, Michigan officials are considering scrapping the contract over serious problems ranging from maggots in the food to private contract employees abusing and having sex with prisoners.
According to emails acquired by the Detroit Free Press under the Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act, state officials are at their “wit’s end,” over the complete failure of the Aramark Correctional Services of Philadelphia to control their employees and fulfill the terms of their contract.
In an attempt to save $12 million annually, Michigan outsourced food services to Aramark starting in January of this year, only to receive reports of maggots in the food, unclean kitchens,  food shortages causing increased tensions with the prisoners, as well as Aramark employees smuggling in contraband and assaulting inmates.
One Aramark food service director showed up for work drunk and failed a Breathalyzer test while another was caught trying to smuggle marijuana into the prison.
“I’m at my wit’s end,” Kevin Weissenborn, the Michigan Department of Corrections manager in charge of overseeing Aramark’s contract, wrote to one prison warden in March.
“I know how you feel,” replied Warden Heidi Washington of the Charles E. Egeler Reception & Guidance Center in Jackson. “At first I felt like Lansing thought I was just being too difficult and too demanding because I was always complaining. However, I think everyone knows that’s not the case.”
Although Aramark only employs 300 workers in Michigan’s prisons, 74 Aramark workers have been banned from prison property for various infractions in just six months.
Aramark was fined $98,000 in March for repeated contract violations such as running out of food and making improper substitutions for required menu items.
Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is now considering scrapping the $145-million, three-year contract before the summer heat intensifies, worried over prison unrest.
After reading reports of maggots in the food at two prisons, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardvill (R-Monroe) called for new bids from other companies.
“It doesn’t matter if they’re prisoners or who they are, people don’t deserve that type of treatment,” Richardville said.
Aramark officials have released a statement claiming they believe many of the complaints stem from prison officials unhappy with outsourcing jobs at the expense of state Corrections Department workers.

standwithpalestine:

You are a liar. Over 600 Palestinians have been killed in the space of 2 weeks - more than 25% of whom children - and the best you can think of is ‘Israel’s goals are not to kill children’?

You’re not mistaken or ignorant, you know the truth but choose to lie in order to support Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

You want Palestinians to be wiped out (yep, definitely click this link) which is why you lie about Israel’s intentional killing of Palestinian children. Anyone who’s spent even a minute watching the news or on social media especially within the past two weeks has seen how the Israeli military targets innocent civilians, hospitals and ambulances.

'Half your posts are so unfactual' - the first thing you'll notice about this blog is that it's full of links to reliable sources. Read them. 

And on that note

"An Israeli army officer who fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into a 13-year-old Palestinian girl and then said he would have done the same even if she had been three years old was acquitted on all charges by a military court yesterday."
