Two Entirely Different School Shootings Happened Just Hours Apart Today, Becoming The 75th & 76th School Shooting In America Since the Sandy Hook Shooting

thepoliticalfreakshow:

Around 7:40 a.m. Monday, two teenagers were arguing in front of their high school 40 miles away from Charlotte, North Carolina, when one of them pulled a gun out of his waistband and shot the other. The victim was shot twice in the leg, and is reportedly in stable condition at a nearby hospital. The alleged shooter, a 15 year-old boy named Jalen Russell, turned himself in to his school principal and is facing charges for assault with a deadly weapon.

Just hours later, an as-yet unidentified suspect shot another high school student in Louisville, Kentucky. According to a spokesperson for Louisville’s government, the suspect in that case is “a male, about 6-foot-5, wearing a gray hoodie, black pants with a gray stripe, and about 15-16 years old.” The victim was taken to a local hospital.

As of last June, when most schools across the country began their summer vacations, there had been at least 74 incidents where shots were fired on school property since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. With today’s shootings, that number is at least 76.

Although the Senate considered popular legislation to reduce gun murders in the wake of Sandy Hook, in part by ensuring that people who purchase firearms are subject to a federal background check, the bill was killed by a filibuster.

  • Question: Regarding hip-hop dance crazes: That is black excellence? That is what you people are proud of? Not science or art? Shaking your butt? Well, I guess you gotta take what you got. - Anonymous

    We’re proud of everything black people achieve, be it dancing or doing well at school. And why are you looking down on it when white people try to emulate everything we do? Or are you mad cause white people have no rhythm?

    - Vicky

    "White people try to emulate everything we do" What? Is it now a crime for a white person to be a hip-hop dancer? 

    "White people have no rhythm" There you go assuming again! I know a lot of white people who are really goo at dancing, like REALLY GOOD. But I guess to you all white people have zero rhythm. This blog literally is disturbing. 

    So you’re choosing to completely disregard the fact that this anon is trying to shame something that’s an avid part of black culture and are trying to make it look like I’m at fault? And yes, white people have a history of doing that, see twerking, hot combs, durags, etc (I can provide you with links if you want). And saying white people (never said all white people) can’t dance is “disgusting” how?

    - Vicky

    Did I say disgusting? I said your blog is DISTURBING. Just because hip-hop, twerking, hot combs and durags are apart of black culture doesn’t mean it can’t be shared. And yes you said white people. You didn’t say some, you said white people, meaning all. If you didn’t mean all white people than you should have said so but seeing that your blog is titled “Silence White People” then it doesn’t surprise me that you would automatically assume white people suck at dancing. 

    Soz, I misread that. See it wouldn’t be an issue if white people gave credit when they get ideas. There are people who legitimately believe that Miley Cyrus “created” twerking when its something that black people have been doing for years and years. And it’s another issue because of the double standard in which it’s frowned upon when white people do it (“thuggish black men wearing durags”, “black girls are ratchet when they twerk”) but then when white people do it, no one says shit like that. They get praised for their “”“innovate”“” ideas. Nope, if I said I like pizza, it doesn’t mean I like all flavours of pizza, if I said icecream, it doesn’t mean I like all types of icecream. Unless someone says “all”, then they are not speaking about every single person or thing. It’s basic, this applies to our blog title. Doesn’t say silence all white people. And white people not being able to dance has been the butt of jokes of people of all races (including white people) for years and years.. I don’t understand what you’re trying to insinuate by pointing out the fact that I said that white people can’t dance..

    - Vicky

    You literally discriminate white people because they are white. That is a form of racism. And you are a hypocrite. You speak out against racism but yet you are being racist yourselves. Interesting. And you compared food to human beings…. Everyone knows Miley Cyrus didn’t invent twerking. Stop acting like white people are taking everything away from you. Its not a crime if a white person twerks. Culture is meant to be shared, not stuck behind four walls. As a POC myself, I actually like it when people wear clothes or jewelry from my culture. If if they listen to music from my culture. I love it. It makes me happy knowing people are interested in knowing more about it. I don’t get all butt hurt when someone wants to know more about my culture. Maybe you and your fellow bloggers should work on that.

    Um no, if you have any legitimate examples of where anyone has ever just called out a white person simply cause they were white and not cause of their actions, point me in that direction. Oh wait, you’re not going to find anything cause we don’t do that…. Lol no, I just googled it for you and there are people who legitimately thought she invented twerking…. And it’s not just from black people, it’s with all PoC. White people shame us for doing stuff that’s part of our culture then want to do it as well, this is a commonly known thing, you just cause you’ve not heard about it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. That’s cool if you as an individual like that but when people have experiences with white people telling them the henna on their hands look like shit or make fun of their clothing and then turn around and do those things, they’re not going to be happy about it…I have nothing else to say to you.

    - Vicky

    Your blog is literally all about shaming white people. You can deny it all you want but your blog is all proof. Have fun living a racist life.

    You are annoying have fun trying to get anywhere with your annoying ass
