Hi there. My name's Aaron. I'm an antitheist, but above all, a secular Humanist. I have systemic Lupus and haven't much else to say. I like posting things that provoke thought and smiles. I think we need more of those things. More thinking, more smiles.

Women are allowed to think body hair is unattractive

Study: People See Black Children as Less Innocent and Less Young Than White Children

In the graph below, their research shows the shows the number of use of force incidents by officers in the study:

The below graph shows the results of the study of mean age overestimation by college participants (left) and, frighteningly of police officers (right) in the study:

Police participants in particular grossly overestimated the age of black children when they suspected them of felonies especially. In fact, when a police officer suspected a white child of a felony, they underestimated their ages on average. College students also mimicked this trend in grossly overestimating the age of black children they suspected of felonies vs. white and latino children.

"[T]he implicit dehumanization of Blacks," the study’s authors write, “was a significant predictor of racial disparities in the use of force against children” — though they’re clear to note that it is “plausible that negative interactions with Black children disproportionately produce implicit anti-Black dehumanization.”

The humanity and innocence of black children and their bodies does not exist in our virulently antiblack society. There is no sanctity of black life, and we will even execute 14 year old black children like George Stinney for the crime of existing in our white supremacist society. Even criminal white children will still be seen as children, whereas black children are simply miniature adults bound to fill another bed in the prison industrial complex. Sickening.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is an all-time favorite of mine, as well as my bestfriend’s. We loved a lot of the same things, almost like twins. In February 2012, she was in an auto wreck that took her life at the young and heartbreaking age of 18. I miss her every single day, and I feel this token of my appreciation to our mutual love for the movie will help her live on, and carry me through hard times. I love the simplicity of it.
