"I don’t feel safe anymore in my own home."

Chilling words spoken by a young Latino girl, living in the state of Arizona, who posted a video documenting her recent assault this past Thursday. (September 11th, 2014.)

Meet Brenda Villavicencio, she is the recent victim of a hate crime attack on her and her family in their own home.

So basically, these racist (14/16) year old girls think that they can FORCE their way into her household with the power of THEIR FATHER and ATTACK THIS YOUNG GIRL AND HER FATHER (WHO WAS USING HIS BODY TO PROTECT HER 3 MONTH OLD YOUNGER BABY BROTHER AND HIS 13 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER) BECAUSE SHE CALLED THEM OUT ON THEIR RACIST BULLSHIT AND REFUSED TO FIGHT THEM, IN FEAR SHE WOULD GET KICKED OFF OF THE SOCCER TEAM.

This girl literally had to get a knife from inside to threaten them to leave. YET THEY STILL HAD THE GALL TO THROW A CHAIR AT THEIR HOUSE, BREAKING THEIR HOME’S FRONT WINDOW AND YELL OUT SEVERAL DEATH THREATS BEFORE FINALLY LEAVING.

You can watch the video above to learn more, which is Brenda explaining the situation after the fact, and you can see the cuts and injuries on her face from the encounter.

The police refuse to do anything other than file some meager irrelevant charges that are going to be dropped with no justice. Apparently, they do not see this as the horrifying hate crime it is.

There is currently a petition to have the authorities actually investigate their family’s assault, it’s only asking for 2,500 signatures, probably because they doubt that people will care enough about this sort of thing. Please help them at least get the 205 left needed, I believe this family needs justice. They need to feel safe.

POC here in the U.S. are literally being assaulted for no fucking reason, and it’s being allowed and ignored because we’re not worthy of being saved in the eyes of those who are supposedly “sworn to protect us."

This violence needs to stop.

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

Everyone talks about how different Aang and Korra are so I decided to make a thing based upon that.

OMG what an asshole! What a terrible person, driving like a jackass! He could've killed someone! How could y'all care if he's hurt? SMH fans are so biased! He's practically A MURDERER! I hope he goes to jail, then dies, then goes to jail again in hell! Scum of the EARTH!

You don't know what happened! Oppa isn't like that. She probably did something to make him mad. It was probably just a fight. We don't know his side! She's probably just lying for attention anyway. I'll always believe in you, oppa! Fighting! #StayStrongOppa
