14KGold elsewhere; you can call me 14K. Back in my more recently ancestral stomping grounds of NYC. I have much to say, and I say it very fucking loudly. I love learning; if you can teach me something, I'm all ears, and I'd love to teach you what I can in return. Nota bene: I can accept an initial lack of knowledge, but I'm too old to tolerate bullshit. If you prefer willful ignorance, this ain't the place for you.

The effects of unchecked criminalization: Teen charged with felony for science experiment →

onebigpear:

fuckyeahfeminists:

This is what the school-to-prison pipeline looks like. This is how black youth criminalized.

  1. She was doing a science experiment
  2. She’s being charged as an ADULT
  3. She’s being charged with a FELONY

If this all goes the way the prosecution wants, this young woman will be LEGALLY discriminated against for the rest of her life. No voting, housing discrimination,  employment discrimination (as if getting a job while black isn’t hard enough), etc. etc.

There is a petition up … spread the word.

Hey, remember this from yesterday? Go ahead and hit up the petition.
