India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

just to be clear, we are looking at a scenario in which the very organization tasked with investigating an officer-involved-shooting… are behind the donation drive to support the officer involved in the shooting

I just phrased that in the most neutral terms possible and it’s still absolutely damning

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

The people in retail get reprimanded for leaning on the counter, and yet a cop can execute someone and not even be arrested.

From a historical distance, it’s easy for those who aren’t in the line of fire to empathize with the targets of police brutality and repression. In 2014, Martin Luther King Jr. is treated like a national hero, so much so that it’s easy to forget that he was persecuted by the FBI and accused of encouraging “murder, arson, and looting” in the pages of the National Review in 1965. But gaining that empathy in hindsight does little good to people who are struggling in the here and now. It’s a shame to see so many people, in the 21st century, fall into the same traps that their predecessors did in the 60s and 70s: Casting around for reasons to demonize civil rights and anti-war protesters, blaming victims for violence against them, and spreading nasty rumors to justify policy brutality. What the country needs is for there to be a little more empathy that’s given to the protesters in the past shared with the protesters standing up today.

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

"This is what happens when we when we publish stupid piece after stupid piece blaming women’s behavior for sexual assault, when we don’t encourage young people to communicate openly and regularly during romantic and sexual encounters, when we don’t teach affirmative consent or really any kind of sex education.

"But not all college guys see themselves as the victims of a newly galvanized movement to prevent sexual assault. An incoming freshman from North Carolina named Clark Coey told Bloomberg that he is aware of the schools that are under investigation for Title IX violations, and is “concerned how [consent] will be defined when other students, including women, may be using drugs and alcohol that affect their decision-making.” Coey is the only person interviewed in the piece who makes clear that more education is needed to address consent and healthy relationships in the brave new world of university life. “I haven’t learned anything about consent since I was a freshman in a health class,” he said. “They have to give you a better understanding of what’s right and what’s wrong.”

"More people should listen to Clark Coey. He is correct."

I would suggest reading the whole article. It’s a good read.
