A year ago today, the world lost an incredible 14 year old boy from Buffalo, New York.
His name was Jamey Rodemeyer, a courageous and happy human being, he will always be remembered for the lives he touched and for the love he spread to other people.
Although Jamey was so outspoken on the subject of bullying, he, himself was a victim to the hatred he tried so desperately to put an end to. Simply because of his sexuality. Eventually, it took it’s toll. Jamey committed suicide the night of September 17th, 2011. His little sister found him the morning of September 18th, hanging from the swing set in his family’s backyard.
Jamey was an exceptionally brave person who gave his time to helping other people feel like they were worth something and to give hope to anyone searching for it. Even though he was going through very tough times at school, he made incredibly uplifting videos telling people they are special, that it does get better, to stay strong and never give up. If you have a few minutes and if you’d like to know more about Jamey, you can watch his videos here. 
Jamey’s last tweet was to Lady Gaga, who was a huge inspiration to him. He lived and breathed her song “Born This Way” and it’s message. Lady Gaga performed an emotional tribute performance of her song “Hair”, an anthem dedicated to the social outcasts, for Jamey at the 2011 iHeartRadio Music Festival, which you can watch here.

"You’re not a victim, you’re a lesson to all of us." - Gaga.
I’ve learned and thought about you a lot over the past year, Jamey, and today was really no different. “Hair” was playing in my head all day at work and I even started to sing it aloud when no one was around. You, sir, are a constant reminder for me to treat everyone I meet with the upmost respect and kindness. You make me want to be a better person and really just help those who are in need of a friend or just someone to talk to. I wanna thank you for from the bottom of my heart for that. All of us Monsters miss you, bud. Paws Up & Take care :]


3 years ago today, we lost someone very special. Keep his memory alive.

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.
