The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.
The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.
In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.

I don’t dare try to get my hopes up anymore.
Studying multiple languages at the same time?
More like, “I have an approximate knowledge of many things.”
does anyone else ever just feel really sad because literally nobody around you cares about language learning and you’re the only one and it’s just very lonely because nobody understands the joys and struggles, and tumblr is one of the few places you can find like-minded people who love language learning too
or is this just me?
- People: *insulting a language*
- Me: *from across the room* BIIIIIIIITTTCH please
PETITION TO MAKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE COMPULSORY IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FROM A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE LAZY ASSWIPES WHO EXPECT EVERYONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND NEVER BOTHER EVEN LEARNING ANY OTHER LANGUAGE.
Actually, most of us would love speak another language but our education system sucks so we literally learn 4 words. It’s not because we are all lazy.
I want to say most elementary schools in America have a Spanish class kids go to once a week. You just learn colours and numbers and very basic sentences. In high school (at least at my high school) students of the graduating classes of 2016 and onwards, are required to take two years of the same language to graduate. I myself will graduate in 2015 so I have no language requirements. I still took French 4 and Spanish 2 this year. The students who were in a language of my graduating class and before, actually wanted to be in the class (for the most part) so there was a lot more motivation. Now all the students don’t want to be in a language and there’s a lot of trouble makers being forced to take a class and they distract and slow down the class. They really don’t understand that another language is something good that will make you more employable in the future among other things. We have French, German, Mandarin and Spanish at my school. With more classes in Mandarin and Spanish than French and German. That’s ok because there’s more Mandarin and Spanish speakers in the world. It really depends on the teacher too on how you learn. For my exams in French and Spanish, I’ve had to write a paper using everything I know. It’s really based on the set curriculum by the government. You’d think that a country with no official language would strive to make learning languages a big deal but they don’t. Not necessarily learning Farsi or Zulu, but at least Mandarin and Spanish since they’re the most spoken.
