"When I was in high school a friend of mine was killed in a car wreck. He was not wearing his seat…"

“When I was in high school a friend of mine was killed in a car wreck. He was not wearing his seat belt and thrown from his vehicle. “God’s plan” language was used often at my high school that year. Claiming that the incident was divinely ordered helped people cope with their grief. It was easier than claiming the sad truth that, if my friend had buckled his seatbelt, he likely would have survived. Blaming the victim is never healthy, but blaming God for our own mistakes is no better.”

-

Rev. Adam J. Copeland (5 Reasons to Stop Calling Things ‘God’s Plan’)

This is an article in response to Geroge Zimmerman’s statement that what he done was in “God’s Plan”.

(via whatwhiteswillneverknow)

All day yesterday I was obsessed with this clip from the view, where Barbara Walters is talking about how she didn’t end up interviewing George Zimmerman because he made demands that she couldn’t grant (reports say he demanded money to pay his hotel bill).

Obviously at first it was disorienting for me to be watching people in modern clothing discussing contemporary issues because I mostly only watch old BBC shows, but once I got over that, I was really into Ms. Walters’s obvious anger at having missed out on the interview. Like you can see how pissed she is, she wanted it, knew it would be a big get, she even let him go on Hannity, when usually she holds out for an exclusive, she is SO MAD, and it is kind of cool to see her still nakedly ambitious and wanting to win.

However, she then goes on to lay out all kinds of pro-Zimmerman stuff that she should not be putting out there if she isn’t going to air an interview. Ohhh he is in hiding? POOR GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Was the hour she spent with him on or off the record? Why is she talking about his (supposed) grandmother and repeating what his lawyers said about the FBI supposedly interviewing people who said Zimmerman is not a racist? That’s bullshit hearsay. “He mentored two black children.” REALLY?

But then the other ladies started talking and IS THAT ROSEANNE BARR? WHAT? And then I loved when Barbara quoted Zimmerman saying it was God’s will, and the lady in the red was all, “If you go to prison, well I guess that’s God’s will part two,” and then the other lady says, perfectly seriously, “Well that’s not God’s will, that’s Satan. Satan is alive and well!” AND THEY JUST KEEP TALKING LIKE THAT’S A TOTES NORMS THING TO SAY.

Is this something that happens on TV a lot? WTF? Satan! is alive!

Recently The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered over 70 unpublished photographs by Parks at the bottom of an old storage box wrapped in paper and marked as “Segregation Series.” These never before series of images not only give us a glimpse into the everyday life of African Americans during the 50′s but are also in full color, something that is uncommon for photographs from that era.
