What Makes Languages Change? How Culture Shapes Our Words
Q: When you say it doesn’t “borrow,” do you have an example?
A: The word they use for automobile means “that it has wrinkled feet,” which is, incidentally, an example of how the words you have reflect your culture. If you’re a tracker, you’re going to be noticing the tire tracks—the focus of that particular word. And the word for telephone means “you whisper into it.”

"Already known for being an outspoken advocate of 'justice without fear or favour,' she launched an investigation into allegations that then mayor Rodrigo Duterte was running death squads in Davao in his popular anti-crime campaign.
"She continues to campaign against the reintroduction of the death penalty. This month she was honoured by the US publication Foreign Policy as one of its top Global Thinkers of 2016, for her willingness to 'stand up to an extremist leader'."

Tamir Rice family attorney says expert reports have 'tainted grand jury process' | US news | The Guardian
RT : New: Expert who wrote Tamir Rice report publicly suggested officer was justified before he was asked to review case

"On Monday Chandra, the Rice family attorney, accused McGinty of 'making no effort to secure justice' for Tamir and said that the boy’s mother, Samaria, thought the prosecutor should step aside to allow outside authorities to take charge of the case.

“'Ms Rice has always been wary of the prosecutor but gave him the benefit of the doubt,' he said. 'But she now believes that because he has tainted the process, a special prosecutor would be best.'"

Tamir Rice: The story behind the senseless killing, character assassination, and resulting cover-up
"the police told what appear to be at least five lies about what happened.
1. Police said that Tamir Rice was seated at a table with other people.
2. Police said that as they pulled up, they saw Tamir Rice grab the gun and put it in his waistband.
3. Police said they got out of the car and told Tamir Rice three times to put his hands up but he refused.
4. Police said that Tamir Rice then reached into his waistband and pulled out the gun, and was then shot and killed by Officer Timothy Loehmann.
5. Timothy Loehmann was described as a rookie."  dailykos  tamir_rice  news  lie  police  crime  death  killing  media  timothy_loehmann  child  gun  racism  anger  911  video  audio  cleveland  ohio  america  chris_hayes

Face it, black people. Michael Brown let you down. — Culture Club — Medium
"A man was born under magical circumstances, lived among the poor and sick, and performed miracles. He was sentenced to a brutal and unjust death, which he accepted, because it was for the good of his neighbors — even those that hated him. He was, literally, perfect.

"Maybe that’s why the recent revelation that Jesus may have had a wife is so controversial. People are angry about this, but they shouldn’t be. After all, what’s the matter with having a wife? If you believe, it doesn’t change anything, at all. He still performed miracles. He still died. He still came back. He’s still God’s son. You can still pray to him.

"But maybe the issue is that as a (formerly) Puritan society, we need our saviors to be spotless, to be clean. Perhaps that’s what all the fuss is about."

The World Cries for Newtown's Children, but Few of Us Think About Dead Brown Babies | Your Black World
“People believe that little white kids in the suburbs have the right to live.  They have the right to be happy.  They have the right to peace.  When it comes to black babies in urban neighborhoods, people don’t believe these children deserve to have similar rights.  When people say things like ‘I can’t believe this would happen here,’ they are effectively saying that there are some neighborhoods where these tragic outcomes are far more acceptable.  I reject this notion entirely, and it is reflective of both white supremacy and classism.”

Robert Ben Rhoades: The Truck Stop Killer: Newsmakers: GQ
"I spent a week on the road in Appalachia, visiting truck stops, interviewing the older truckers and waitresses. At first, I would ask about the girl in the Dumpster, but no one had heard of her, so I asked if there had ever been any women found in truck stops. Wherever I went, I was told nothing "like that" ever happened, which was remarkable given the numbers of bodies the FBI had tracked over the past thirty years. The newspapers were equally silent. It seems our profound fascination with serial killers is matched by an equally profound lack of interest in their victims. One library archivist explained that I was looking for the kind of news nobody wanted to read. The girl, he said, "wasn't one of our own. She was a drifter." I'd never heard the word "drifter" used in earnest. It touched a nerve I didn't know I had. I had been a drifter."

U.S. Accused of Using Drones to Target Rescue Workers and Funerals in Pakistan
CHRIS WOODS: Even CIA agrees that it’s killed at least 50, and perhaps as high as 60, civilians. Their figures and ours are very different, and I think that’s based on how they interpreted "civilian." But nevertheless, CIA agrees that they’ve killed 50 to 60 civilians. There’s not been an investigation into a single one of those civilian deaths, and there’s not been a cent of compensation ever paid to anyone who’s been killed accidentally in Pakistan. And that’s a problem. When you have a covert intelligence agency running a military campaign, your accountability effectively collapses. And I think it’s worrying.
