Chicago police officers shot and killed 19-year-old Roshad McIntosh in the west side neighborhood of North Lawndale on August 24. His mother was at a press conference after a letter was delivered to the United States Justice Department calling on the federal government to come to the city and investigate crimes by police officers, who have escaped accountability and justice.
Dawn McIntosh, who was crying, declared, “My son was killed senselessly, and he shouldn’t have been. He was surrendering, and they shot him anyway.”
Also, she said, “He was on his knees with both hands up begging for his life. They killed him.”
“They wouldn’t let me see him,” McIntosh shared. “I still didn’t see him until yesterday when I identified his body. It’s not right. It’s not right. And I want justice served. I want justice served for that officer who took my son away.”
Roshad’s aunt, who did not provide her name, told those gathered that the police informed her “they needed to do an investigation.” She did not even get a chance to “say goodbye, kiss her baby and tell her baby how much she loved him.”
Dawn explained that she still doesn’t know the name of the officer, who shot her son.
“I don’t know of age, nothing. I don’t know what he looks like. But, if it was the other way around and somebody had killed the police officer, their name, their age, their address, their nationality, everything, where they’re from, their whole history would have been on the news,” she suggested.
Our fight does not begin nor end in Ferguson. Around the country many young black men and women are losing their lives to police brutality and excessive force. We cannot turn a blind eye to this. Fergson is not a singular event. Nor should our response to it be. Police brutality is an epidemic in the black and latino community and it needs to be stopped.
The information about the cop involved in this case still has not been released and all I can ask is who’s child will be next.
There was 2-3 different police involved shootings in the Chicago area within the past few days.
I’m sick. Physically ill. Why does this keep happening?

.We highly recommend Teaching intersex issues by Emi Koyama and Dr Lisa Weasel. It contains analysis, guidelines, readings and other resources.
The authors present an analysis of self-selected scholars teaching women’s studies, queer studies and related fields in early 2001. It found that the subject of intersex was approached as a means of deconstructing binary sexes and compulsory heterosexuality, “rather than a subject that has real-world implications for real people”.
Teaching intersex issues [There is] a common problem within women’s, gender and queer studies: discussions about intersex existence are “stuck” at where it is used to deconstruct sexes, gender roles, compulsory heterosexuality, and even Western science, rather than addressing medical ethics or other issues that directly impact lives of intersex people… the truth is not that these discussions are “stuck” prematurely, but they are starting from a wrong place with a wrong set of priorities.
Avoidance of discussion of intersex physical, medical and health issues can serve to reduce intersex to biological trivia, “embarrassing bodies”, or a perceived identity issue, rather than intersex as “a site of intimate physical violation”, an issue of human rights and social justice. Focusing on more comfortable gender issues invisibilises intersex people, and privileges the needs of non-intersex people over the needs of people born intersex.
Intersex people, and intersex-led organisations, need to be centred in discussions about intersex. As the disability movement states, we want “nothing about us without us”.
The document presents eight guidelines aimed at changing the way that intersex issues are addressed in education, and a sample course unit. (via Teaching intersex issues | OII Australia – Intersex Australia)

Yeah, sorry, but feminism is a political ideology and guess what? If you don’t believe in the ideology, you’re not a feminist. If you don’t believe women deserve basic human rights then you aren’t a feminist. I think that we all agree that feminists believe women deserve equality and to be acknowledge fully as individuals with basic human rights and their own autonomy. Isn’t that the most basic tenant of feminism? So please explain to me HOW pro-lifers can be feminists.
Have a great night!
Sorry, I really don’t agree
Even the most awful of people can say they are feminists and you know what? Telling them they’re not doesn’t do anything.
What DOES do something is taking responsibility for the trash in our community instead of acting like feminism is above all wrongs, which is essentially what the “they’re not real feminists” attitude is doing.
See the "No True Scotsman" fallacy.
See that would be great, except that feminist ideologies and pro-life ideologies stand opposed to each other. You cannot be one while being the other. You cannot believe in bodily autonomy and not believe in abortion.
There are no pro-lifers in the feminist circle.
The whole premise of feminism is fighting for women’s rights and free choice is like the basic tenant. Fuckin fools.
Oh man, so I should allow any ‘shitty ass feminist’ to tell me that I don’t deserve the basic right to my own BODY? Who the fuck are you? Go away. No feminist will every tell another human being they don’t deserve to control their own body, especially their own reproductive decision when women have been fighting for their reproductive rights for generations.
Pro-lifers are not feminist and feminists are not pro-life. Go educate yourself.
If you’re perpetuating and advocating the oppression of people, you’re not a feminist. Deal with it.
I won’t soon forget the events that took place in #ferguson…will you?
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
Apparently this young girl was pushed off the slide at her school by another classmate
Warning: GRAPHIC PICTURE
PASCAGOULA, Mississippi — An Arlington Elementary student was injured on the school’s playground on Tuesday and her mother filed a police report on Thursday, according to Pascagoula Police Department Lt. Jim Roe.
"The mother alleges another child kicked her child on the slide," Roe said. "Right now, there’s no indication something criminal took place. I have spoken with school security and an assistant superintendent is investigating the matter."
Roe identified the mother as Lacey Harris and the student has been identified on social media sites as AvaLynn. There is a Justice For AvaLynn Facebook page created as well as a gofundme.com account that is raising money to help pay for her medical bills. It indicates about $1,000 has been raised in one day.
The Pascagoula School District issued the following statement about the incident:
"A student was injured while playing on the playground at Arlington Elementary School Tuesday afternoon. School officials responded to the situation. The parent was contacted and the student received medical treatment. No other children were involved in the incident. The Pascagoula School District remains committed to the safety of all its students."this is so fucked up how they’re not taking an active role in finding out who was. We live in a society where we tachl kids how not to be victimized instead of teaching kids not to bully. The “keep your hands, feet, and other objects to yourself” rule clearly isn’t cutting it.
not even surprised..especially for Mississippi…
