Guttmacher Disproves Antiabortion Activists Myth RE: Black and Hispanic Women
With nothing being off limits for Anti-choicers, I’m sure everyone has heard their claim that abortion targets “minorities” by putting abortion clinics within Black and Hispanic communities.

I had to travel to the rich part of town, full of white ppl, to get my abortion.

The Pakistani women who make footballs for the World Cup earn a paltry $100 per month. [x]

At least they are employed

Many of them earn below $100. Many of them have families - often consisting of 5-7 individuals - that rely directly upon on the meager income they generate from this extremely demanding job so them being “at least employed” doesn’t protect them from any kind of economic and social precarity and it doesn’t shelter them from unemployment because labor here is cheap and readily available; the worker is dispensable to the employer/company. So the “at least employed” comment from you was not only stupid but very telling of your piss-poor understanding of wages. I understand many of you love football and will go as far as shoving it up your ass to show your dedication to it but the next time you decide opening your mouth about these workers, consider this noble thought instead: Shut the fuck up.

Bloody Friday: 12 children among dozens killed in Israel’s merciless slaughter
July 19, 2014

The death toll from Israel’s assault on Gaza continues to rise rapidly.

At least 61 people, at least 12 of them children, were killed on Friday alone, the second day of Israel’s ground invasion of parts of the Gaza Strip, and the twelfth and bloodiest day since Israel began bombarding the territory with airstrikes and land-based and naval artillery.

Eight members of a single family, the youngest six months old, were killed when a missile struck their home.

By Friday evening Gaza time, 296 people had been killed and more than 2,200 injured since the Israeli bombardment began, according to Ma’an News Agency

But any death toll reported in the media is quickly out of date, as the numbers keep rising.

Eighty percent of the fatalities are civilians and half of the injured are women and children,according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

At least 58 of the dead are children, according to Dr. Ashraf al-Qidra, the health ministry spokesperson in Gaza.

Gaza residents and journalists have reported heavy and indiscriminate shelling across the coastal strip.

Journalist Mohammed Omer is using his Twitter feed to provide an almost real-time account of the horrifying toll of the Israeli attack.  

Several Gaza residents have told The Electronic Intifada that they are without electricity for most of the time.

Massive destruction continues: 1,780 housing units have been destroyed or severely damaged in Israeli bombing, according to OCHA.

Eighty-four schools and six health facilities have been damaged in the attacks and another 13 health facilities are unable to operate, OCHA states in its latest update.

The number of Palestinians seeking shelter at UN-run schools has risen to 33,500, or 11,000 more than the previous day.

Human Rights Watch said this week that Israeli air attacks it investigated “have been targeting apparent civilian structures and killing civilians in violation of the laws of war.”

The group called on Israel to “end unlawful attacks that do not target military objectives and may be intended as collective punishment or broadly to destroy civilian property.”

Citibank Pays Up, Finally - COLORLINES

disciplesofmalcolm:

"Earlier this week, Citibank agreed to pay the largest federal civil penalty to date for their role in hawking dodgy subprime loans to consumers—disproportionately people of color—and then lying about their creditworthiness to potential investors. It is the latest sign that the collapse of the housing market six years ago continues to reverberate. Citibank’s admission of de facto fraud on Monday means that it will pay more than $7 billion to settle outstanding claims against its loan activities.

The announcement is bittersweet. It may in some small way go to help the nearly 4 million families at risk of losing their home right now. But the settlement comes too late for the nearly 13 million families, many black and brown, who’ve faced foreclosure since the crisis began. And despite the fact that Citibank will pay a historic cost for its wrongdoing, only a fraction of the total amount will go to help victims of the bank’s activities. Just $1 out of every $4 will go directly to help modify loans or help build new housing for affected communities. Most of the rest will go either to the U.S. Treasury and state coffers.”
