Murdering Children Because You Serve Homophobia

WTH. Seriously? A four year old boy is dead now. This article came across the wire and the story is blazing around the internet: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2157903/Peter-Lucas-Moses-Cult-leader-pleads-guilty-murders-woman-28-boy-4.html

Little boy who was shot because an adult thought he was gay.

So this guy Peter Moses shot this young boy, whose name is Jadon. Jadon lived in the same house with him, his mother, numerous women and their children. These women were all “wives” to Mr. Moses, and he had fathered all the children. Except for Jadon.They were members of a religious sect (his wives called him “Lord”).

He thought Jadon was gay, and…well hell, the NY Daily News tells it a bit more succinctly:

“When Jadon struck another boy in the buttocks, Moses concluded it was a sign of the child’s homosexuality, and decided to “get rid of him,” prosecutors said.”

He took him in the garage and shot him in the head. Let that sink in. There is a four year old boy who will never grow up. Why? Because some adult was so threatened by the theoretical possibility of a future gay person in his house that he lost his shit and MURDERED him.

Oh, by the way, he had his other wives help him kill the boy’s mom as well. And in a serious twist of sexism? He will get life instead of the death penalty for murdering this baby because he’s turning on them in a deal. How nice for him. Asshat.

Of course this made me think real quick about another four year old boy. You know, the one who is also a member of a religious sect. The one whose parents and pastor have taught him to hate gays and sing about how they’re not going to Heaven. Because you see, the two things are related. When people think God says you’re worthless, it’s easy for them to act like you’re worthless. Which leads to things like a 4 year old baby getting murdered.

But just in case you are under the wildly mistaken notion that this is an isolated incident, it’s not. Come, take a little walk with me across the internet.

Zimmerman’s Bond Revoked

Gee, who would have thought George Zimmerman was a huge lier?

As most of the world knows by now, he’s had his bond revoked and has to turn himself in by Sunday. Of course he gets a ton of time to report back instead of having to come back to jail immediately like any other person. Must be nice to have friends in high places.

I won’t say too much else, just show you the actual court filing. Here in these papers, you can see the extent of the lies he and his wife told. They also have transcripts of jail conversations the two of them have had.

Enjoy!

The quest to get Wells Fargo to stop investing in private prisons continues. I’ve moved all my money out. Why not move yours too?

This story has been updated from its original version.

A group of Wells Fargo shareholders wants the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission  to force the bank to hold another annual meeting.

The San Francisco-based bank’s annual meeting last month was disrupted by protesters who were eventually removed from the meeting. Twenty-four people were arrested, according to Bloomberg.

Worldwide White Supremacy Unmasked

Whiteness as a race is a social construct that relies on several systems to stay in control of our society. Sometimes it is hidden, sometimes it is openly violent. Dr. Marimba Ani has written a book that has become a core standard read. It’s called Yurugu, and her book shows us what white culture of destruction looks like. I’m working my way through it, and recommend it to everyone.

Here she is doing an interview, and she touches on some of the concepts in the book.If you’re super impatient, the most important part starts at 3:00 in.

A more in depth interview that really lays things out can be found here:

Enjoy the videos. FYI, racism and global white supremacy are very much real things in the world. Comments left here that want to debate that point or tell me it doesn’t exist will be deleted as soon as I see them.

If you haven’t really thought much about racism, race issues, and whiteness until this moment in time, awesome. Now you can start.
