believe a little girl in 30 seconds but won’t believe the black man after 5 hours….lol ok.
Says a lot.
It really does. I think it’s wonderful that she told that truth however, this is a prime example of white privilege. At 4 years old, she actually had systematic power over the fate of a Black male. White privilege is a very real and impactful thing.
I know that this story is heartwarming in it’s own way. Yes, the 4 year old has more in the way of ethical fiber in her pinky than her babysitter has in her whole body. Yes, it’s case closed on a wrongfully accused case that could have had very serious consequences for the neighbor involved…
but there’s something really chilling about an otherwise law abiding citizen being arrested and questioned in handcuffs for 5 hours on the casual implication of a 17 year old.
Shit like this angers me.
but it was’nt the little girl who told the police it was the baby sitter
So I was telling some of my friends I work with about how when everyone else was being princesses and cheerleaders and the spice girls for halloween I had turned to my mother and said, "Mum. I want to be an Alien." So she made me this great Alien costume here, which looking back now is the funniest photo ever and I feel like this tells you a lot about me as a child and me now.
This is like the coolest halloween photo from the 90s that I’ve ever seen.
Deadpool keeps a scrapbook containing selfies of him with almost every superhero and villain. The only ones he doesn’t have are Wolverine and Mystique. (He also has another scrapbook dedicated to Spider-Man, but he doesn’t show that one to people in case they tell Peter)
