South Korean Adopted At Age 3 Is To Be Deported Nearly 40 Years Later

geek-baits:

Two things: 1.) Congress is trash and I cant wait to vote them out because we do not need a Congress that consistently fails their people and 2.) STOP ADOPTING BABIES FROM OVERSEAS IF YOU AREN’T GOING TO FUCKING TAKE CARE OF THEM. EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY, LEGALLY. IF YOU AREN’T GOING TO TAKE CARE OF A BABY, THEN DON’T TRY TO RAISE ONE. ASIAN CHILDREN ARE NOT EXOTIC SOUVENIRS, SO STOP TREATING THEM LIKE THEY ARE.

The foster care system, the justice system, and the US government has failed this man.

I’m putting this out there as a person who has worked in and with the foster system. In particular, I’ve worked with it in California. But here is shit I saw that’s relevant to this article:

I’m 500% behind everything @geek-baits said, especially the all-caps. And the following is why.

Some people don’t realise that there are a lot of kids in the foster care system who are undocumented (or, “illegal,” except being a person in a country isn’t fucking illegal), and there are a ridiculous amount of reasons for this. Here are some of the reasons my students (in an all-foster youth school) gave me for being undocumented:

1. Same as this man. They were adopted by people who then didn’t finish processing their paperwork. This was most commonly Southeast/East Asian children, but it also applied to African children.

2. Some of them were with their also undocumented families. And then they were removed from their families because of complaints of neglect/abuse by neighbours, schools, people LIVING in their community (who weren’t really OF their community), etc. Their families would then be taken in by ICE and deported while they (and some of their siblings) got tossed into foster care. Most of these kids were Latin American.

3. Some children were brought in via trafficking. I had two particular girls who were brought over from Africa (one from Congo, one from Sudan), didn’t have their paperwork processed at all (by their adoptive “parents”), and they were removed from the homes once it was determined that they were being abused. (Both girls, however, told me that nothing happened other than removing them from the home. Their white “parents” were never held accountable, and their files corroborated this along with previous social workers.)

Here’s another fun bit of information: A lot of those kids, especially in groups 1 and 2, don’t realise that they’re undocumented until much later in life. They go to apply for their first job (aged 16+), only to realise they don’t have a social security number; they go to do things that require being a citizen only to realise they can’t and, at that point, are put into a dangerous situation (being deported is a dangerous situation).

It’s gross, it’s disgusting, and shit’s gotta give. We can’t keep doing this to people, and this is disproportionately affecting people of colour.

This beautiful Native American woman… Brave and true… Fighting for her land, for her people, for her children. And by the way, Dakota Access Pipeline nearly completed. The construction has reached within a half mile of the Missouri River, which flows into Lake Oahe. 

Their pain is real and Native Americans need our help. Dressing in Native costumes on Halloween won’t change anything, they need our voices. The state oppression must be ended.

WE WILL NOT GET OVER IT!

Ruby Bridges was the first black child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana during the New Orleans school desegregation crisis in 1960.

This movie made me cry, I was so heart broken by how Ruby Bridges was treated! She was only 6, but was so strong. She is a very brave girl and she did not care what the white folks called her.

People are simply disgusting to minimize people by skin color!

Ruby you might not think you’re a hero… But to other people you are! You are A HERO and you are A PERSON WHO MADE AMERICA CHANGE!

this is white culture, this is their history, this is their legacy…being enraged at a damn baby just because she’s black.

she’s still alive by the way

Ruby Bridges in 2010 

“As Bridges describes it, “Driving up I could see the crowd, but living in New Orleans, I actually thought it was Mardi Gras. There was a large crowd of people outside of the school. They were throwing things and shouting, and that sort of goes on in New Orleans at Mardi Gras.“ Former United States Deputy Marshal Charles Burks later recalled, “She showed a lot of courage. She never cried. She didn’t whimper. She just marched along like a little soldier, and we’re all very very proud of her.“ 

U.S. Marshals escorted Bridges to and from school

As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all the teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Henry taught her alone, “as if she were teaching a whole class.”

Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her; because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, allowed Ruby to eat only the food that she brought from home.

Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Bridges Hall has said “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.” At her mother’s suggestion, Bridges began to pray on the way to school, which she found provided protection from the comments yelled at her on the daily walks.”

THIS SHIT WAS ONLY 56 YEARS AGO. PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS RACIST TERRORISM AND ACTS LIKE IT ARE STILL ALIVE, AND THEIR KIDS ARE IN THEIR 40′S AND 50′S. 

DON’T LET RACISM APOLOGISTS GET AWAY WITH “WHY ARE YOU LIVING IN THE PAST,” BULLSHIT ARGUMENTS. WE ARE LITERALLY STILL DEALING WITH THE FAMILIES THAT FORMED HATE MOBS OVER BLACK CHILDREN ATTENDING SCHOOL WITH WHITE KIDS.

Apple is based out of California, they generated 233.7 billon dollars in revenue last year. Yet Apple refuses to manufacture in the USA. Apple has continued to use Foxconn as their manufacturer, and America has continued to turn the other cheek. 

But everybody seems to forget that Apple isn’t the only company to have their products made by Foxconn. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo’s major consoles, all made by Foxconn. They make TVs for Sony, Sharp, and Toshiba. Phones for Nokia, Huawei, and Motorola. They’re a major assembler of PCs for Dell, Acer, and Hewlett-Packard

This is a lot worse than just one company.

Y’know, I really enjoy the concept of Clark Kent.

Like, minus the whole superman aspect.

because, like, okay I can buy that maybe he can disguise himself well enough to hide the fact that he’s superman, but i doubt any amount of slouching and glasses wearing can truly disguise that he’s a very tall EXTREMELY muscular man with a jawline that can cut glass.

So basically this newspaper office has this guy who looks like a weightlifter/supermodel just hanging around but he wears glasses and acts like a huge nerd and everyone just goes with it???

Like “Oh yeah, that’s Clark. No no he works here. Oh no don’t bother being intimidated by him, talk to him for five minutes and he’ll devolve into a lecture on proper tractor maintenance. We like Clark.”

 I wonder if the ladies in the office ever drag him with them to bars so they don’t have to worry about creeps trying to harass them like “back off creeps our friend here is 6′4″ and grew up chucking hay bales” 
And then it’s funny because (as far as they know) Clark is like, the meekest lil nerd around. (He don’t look it though!!!!)

It’s just incredible to me that Clark Kent can pull off being a quiet harmless dork while still looking like, well, superman. 

Do you think he occasionally turns up to the office Halloween party wearing a really shitty Batman costume?

Well, I do now.

This is what it looks like when non-straight, non-white, non-male people get to host late night shows

Dunking on the “Blacks for Trump” woman and a Carmilla shoutout is the kind of glorious content we have to look forward to when networks finally stop hiring only straight cis white dudes to host late night shows. Please.
