I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me. Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.

Pretty scary that he doesn’t even recognize that this type of police mentality is a problem.

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love. 

This is very important. Know your anxiety first aid.

Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow

Designed as a supersonic interceptor against the threat of Soviet bombers attacking from over the Arctic, the Avro Canada CF-105 was an advanced aircraft boasting features that would not appear in production aircraft for many years. Powerful and efficient engines, fly-by-wire systems, and automated take-off/landing features were among the technologies that debuted in this aircraft. Designed to carry AIR-2 Genie (nuclear), AIM-4 Falcon, AIM-7 Sparrow II (nuclear/cancelled), and Canadair Velvet Glove (cancelled) missiles, the CF-105 could have carried up to eight missiles.

Development costs, the lack of interest in the CF-105 by the United States and United Kingdom, and the prioritization towards nuclear missiles over nuclear bombers led to the cancellation of the Arrow in February 1959. Nearly 30,000 jobs were lost due to the fighter’s cancellation, leading to a brain drain to the United States and United Kingdom that largely crippled Canada’s aviation industry.

Five prototypes were built, all of which were sold for scrap. The nose section of one aircraft and some outer wing panels were saved and are on display.

When I say I want to create a magazine catering to black girls kinda like Seventeen Magazine, there’s always someone to say something like “Oh why just for black girls only? why not for all girls” And I’m just like NO just no ok! And this one of the few reasons. I was scrolling on my fb today and I say this link 17 posted “7 Super Cute Hairstyles For Natural Hair” and I clicked it I don’t know why but I did, and the whole time i’m clicking next I’m just like where are the 3C,3B, 4A, 4B,4c chicks? All your black followers with natural hair does have this texture? And I like how they throw Lupita in there. Where’s the hair diversity? What are you telling girls who doesn’t have this hair texture uh? The subtitle of the article is what kills me. How am I suppose to embrace my natural hair texture when all the hairstyles I’m looking it is for people with looser hair or curls *kaye voive*  UHHH? 

What do you guys have to say?
