BREAKING: The Prime Minister of New Zealand, @jacindaardern, just announced a full and immediate national ban on all assault rifles after Friday’s white supremacist terror attack. This is what responsive, courageous leadership looks like. Shame on our nation for allowing thousands of people to be slaughtered, including kids all over our country, without taking this essential step.
A new victim of the terrorism attack in New Zealand was just identified - Haziq, 17 (left) is the son of Mohd Tarmizi Shuib, 42, currently being treated for gunshot wounds at the #Christchurch Hospital following Friday's massacre at the Al Noor Mosque. 17 year old Haziq was just confirmed dead by hospital officials.

Translation: White man wants people to accept his bigotry in absolute silence. THE NERVE.
Thought we’d take a little break and answer this. Elmo is basically a baby. He’s cute, but wouldn’t last long on a deserted island! Cookie Monster is a complete maniac and would probably become a cannibal out there. So for me it comes down to Oscar and Grover. Grover is generally courageous and a real risk taker and would probably really help find a way to get us off the island. Oscar, though, has been through some things. He could really survive out there. Ultimately, I think Oscar is who I’d stick with if I had to stay on the island, but Grover would be my dude if we were trying to make it off.
Boom. From the top of his campaign staff on down. Every single team. It’s a fearless, brilliant, progressive, diverse, experienced team. You have no idea. It’s the best team in politics right now.
Repost from @berniesanders ・・・ "I don't care when [Trump] calls him ‘Crazy Bernie.’ I was in California when Bernie went to Disneyland and literally said that he did not think that Mickey Mouse and Goofy approved of Disney not paying their workers a living wage. You gotta be a little crazy to do that." -@ShaunKing, civil rights activist.
Australian newspapers are really saying the terrorist slaughtered 50 Muslims and wrote an 87 page white supremacist manifesto, because (other white) people called him fat as a kid. You can’t make this stuff up.
At the second mosque, Linwood, where 8 Muslims were murdered, we are now learning that Abdul Aziz Wahabzadah, who was there praying with his 4 kids, grabbed a cash register and threw it at the terrorist. When the man began to flee, he dropped a shotgun and ran to his car. Aziz picked it up and chased him in his car. The gun was empty. So he threw it at the window as hard as he could, shattering it, as the man sped off.
"The Soon to be Groom" | Mojammel Hoq, 30, from Bangladesh Hoq moved to #Christchurch 3 years ago to work in healthcare. His dream was to move back to Bangladesh, open a dental clinic for the poor, and marry his fiancé The terrorist permanently deferred those dreams. #50lives (Words from @khaledbeydoun)
She’s a public school teacher. Name is Corrine Terrone. This woman literally called two Black folk in East Haven, CT “fucking niggers,” on camera, in front of her kids, and didn’t think twice about it. Over and over. Then tried to spit on them. —- Repost from @ki_clutch ・・・ Earlier Today My mother and Uncle were attacked by a racist woman in East Haven CT at Shoprite. I honestly can’t say I am shocked, because I have experienced a similar situation of my own. Its gut wrenching to think we have to live in a world where Black People and African Americans still aren’t accepted. I hope this video opens your eyes to the acrimoniously racist society we live in. Yea, “Home of the free” Change soon will come. #worldstar#shaderoom#Racism https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hy0WWeP137Q&feature=youtu.be
