It’s that time of year again.
Just say no to racist costumes people.
Blackface is racist.
Dia de Los Muertos “costumes” are racist
Costuming off of someone else’s culture is racist.
Do your part in making this Halloween season enjoyable for everyone!

hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras

the police officers’ union is bringing out every last excuse to keep it from actually happening

actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.

"gotcha discipline"

basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”

Finally figured out that some people aren’t that impressed with what I’ve done career-wise.  Looking at me crazy like, “why don’t you just give up.” Ha!  Never!  Don’t worry, I’m right behind you.  I’ll catch up soon.  Check out my blog, ThatFormerSidekickGirl.com I’m in recovery from toxic friendships and I write about it there.
