El amor esta en todas partes y en diferentes formas hay amor de madre, amor de hijo, amor de amigos, amor de heteros, amor de entre el mismo sexo, amor es amor y si es capaz de librar año a año los obstaculos de las diferentes estaciones el amor se fortalec.
My 7 year old son was shot down by his 1st grade teacher
The american public education system in a nutshell tho
My third grade teacher actually had a conversation with my mom that I was reading to well and told her to stop having me read at home
My first grade teacher said that it was problematic that I was reading ahead of the rest of the kids in my grade and asked my parents to stop letting me read Harry Potter.
My fourth grade teacher thought it was wrong for my dad to be teaching me complex math because it fascinated me.
My elementary school music teacher hated the way my piano teacher taught me, and how I was more advanced than many of her students, and so told me, in front of my peers and my mother, that I was not good enough to participate in the state solo festival. She would not give me the form. We had to procure it from the district instead. She also hated how I excelled at reading and playing music for the recorder, and so she refused to give me my “belts” (colored beads to signify our level) and humiliated me in front of the class repeatedly.
My eighth grade algebra teacher used to fail me on take home tests because I didn’t solve problems exactly the way she showed us in class; I used methods that we had learned for other types of problems that also applied to these. She took points off my tests because I didn’t bring a calculator even though I got 100% without it, because I was able to do it by hand. I had to call my father, who is an engineer, down to the school to shout her down and give me back my A in the class.
My 10th grade Spanish teacher yelled at me in front of the class numerous times because she didn’t like the way I took notes; she thought that since I didn’t write every word off the slide, I wasn’t getting it all down. I had to explain to her that people who have taken advanced courses, like AP or IB classes, know that in a fast-paced learning environment you need to take quick shorthand notes that contain the necessary information rather than wasting time writing every word. She almost gave me detention.
My 11th grade English teacher gave me a poor mark on my first short essay because she believed that I was looking up unnecessarily complex words in a thesaurus to try and get better marks. The phrases in question: “laced with expletives” and “bombarded”. She wouldn’t hear any defense from me.
My 11th grade history teacher failed me on an essay about the 1950s because I misread the prompt. Except the prompt wasn’t words; it was a political cartoon. One of the figures was clearly president Eisenhower, but the other I couldn’t place. My teacher would not tell us who it was. I labelled him as the governor of Little Rock Arkansas during the integration period, and wrote an essay about that subject. My teacher said that no, it was Joseph McCarthy, and that there was a small picture of the man in our textbook and therefore I should have recognized him instantly. Half the class, apparently, did not.
The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t let it win.

TW FOR RACIALLY MOTIVATED CHILD ABUSE
A Tennessee woman says that when her adoptive parents gave her away to new parents at age 14, she and 17 other adoptive kids in her “nightmarish” new home were sometimes forced to dig their own “graves” in the backyard and scrub the floor with toothbrushes.
Editor’s Note: Today’s stories are the first in a series of online and broadcast reports on adoption by Reuters and NBC News.
“’Get out and go dig your own grave,” Nora Gateley, now 26, says her new mother told her. “’I don’t care if you die. Nobody will find you. You were not even here in the first place.”
…An investigation by Reuters in partnership with NBC News has uncovered an underground world of “re-homing,” where parents give their children to new caretakers, sometimes people they have met only over the internet, with little or no government oversight….Nora had to wear a brace on her leg for her polio, and says that Debra would sometimes take it away. “She took my brace numerous times … as punishment. So I [couldn’t] walk.”
“She said, ‘You can run away for all I care and I’ll let the coyotes out there eat you,’ ” recalled Nora. “’Nobody knows you were here anyway.’”
Sometimes, claimed Nora, Debra would punish the children by forcing them to dig their own “graves,” leaving holes “everywhere” in the backyard. Sometimes she made Nora supervise the other children as they dug, and at least once Nora was made to do it herself.
Very neat & nifty! White Americans fetishize PoC (in a helpless, malleable state), buy us up, own us, realize we are unique entities with our own minds and energies—most decidedly UNlike puppies after all!—flip the fetish and act out the racism in the privacy of their own home. Creeeepy. Very, very sick, folks! Kind of like a Silence of the Lambs home scenario, but with racism, to boot! Wow!
I will be amazed if any of these sociopathic motherfuckers see any real consequences.
Kill them all. Kill the whites.
I’ve been reading this Reuters series all week and it is devastating how many American families purposefully gave their children to known child-molesters and domestic abusers. And some of it was for the most trivial of things - one family detested their 5-year-old Chinese son because “his ears and feet were too big.”
Quote from a Nebraska mom’s internet “ad”, who gave away her 11-year-old Guatemalan son: "I am totally ashamed to say it but we do truly hate this boy!"
Or this washington single mother of 7 adoptive children, who used government subsidies to support her obsessive collecting of foreign and locally born adoptees: "I couldn’t stand to look at him anymore," Mueller says today. "I wanted this child gone." This, of a black boy she had adopted only three years earlier, now ten.
why saying “I want to steal an Asian baby!” or fetishizing poc adoption is harmful as fuck. Once people realize they’re not cute little obedient puppies like they thought they were, the children are thrown away like trash to potential child predators. Disgusting.
When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
Not only did they ruin the economy, they made sure none of us could afford college, homes or cars.
