4 Year Old Foils Babysitter’s Robbery Plot - Video
Let’s just blame the black guy…
believe a little girl in 30 seconds but won’t believe the black man after 5 hours….lol ok.
Says a lot.
It really does. I think it’s wonderful that she told that truth however, this is a prime example of white privilege. At 4 years old, she actually had systematic power over the fate of a Black male. White privilege is a very real and impactful thing.
I know that this story is heartwarming in it’s own way. Yes, the 4 year old has more in the way of ethical fiber in her pinky than her babysitter has in her whole body. Yes, it’s case closed on a wrongfully accused case that could have had very serious consequences for the neighbor involved…
but there’s something really chilling about an otherwise law abiding citizen being arrested and questioned in handcuffs for 5 hours on the casual implication of a 17 year old.
Here for the comments, especially the last one.
have you ever been so wildly attracted to someone you can actually feel it driving you insane

“This image best describes what is happening in Gaza. Gaza is the world’s largest open-air prison. Even calling the action against Palestinians in Gaza a war seems lacking in description. A war implies some equality in combat. What is happening in Gaza is a massacre by one of the world’s most powerful armies, abetted by the silence of western nations.”

Reading some Iyanla Vanzant & some of her points are so beautiful:
Prayer is meant to acknowledge the Divine and ask for the power to manifest in us to give us strength to do whatver it is we need to do. We know what to do.
Know that what you need already exists within you and perhaps you simply are not aware of its existence around you.
Trust that you will recognize the answer to your prayer when it shows up.
"I am what the Divine is"
