I'm not a frequent blogger. This absolutely pissed me off.
First, I want you guys to read it. Some people were saddened by it, and others were angry and frustrated. I'm supposed to somehow understand that the police forces are just as racist and backwards as the goddamn skinheads?
(For whoever thought it was TL;DR, a native family got fucked over by the police after a bunch of racist assholes attacked them on the freeway.)
Now, I don't think I could ever live in a state where this type of shit is acceptable. I wish these kind of people would stop inbreeding, so innocent people can stop getting fucked over like this.
Come on, people. I don't see how anyone at all can find this acceptable. Does it look like we live in the dark ages? Are we still treating minorities as slaves, sending them to the back of the bus, and denying them their human rights? I don't fucking think so. A lot of racism and hate is still going on, but this is just horrible. This poor man and his family have been traumatized by the ignorance and stupidity of Nevada (and yes, I mean Nevada, not just the skinheads responsible.) I know it might seem nosy or improper of a person to plant themselves in other people's business, but if I were to see a man getting beaten on the side of the road, I'd stop, call the cops, and try and help those poor people defend themselves! I might not be as strong as a person can be, but by God, I would try and help these people. The fact that no one at all even attempted to chase these men away shows how cowardly people are.
I don't think the people passing by realized the severity of the attack. Johnny Bonta, the man being attacked, was denied hospitalization and instead was sent to prison because of "battery with a deadly weapon" against the men attacking. Mind you, this family was pursued and unarmed when their attackers cut them off on the freeway and started the altercation. Bonta was reported to have multiple stab wounds IN HIS NECK. Instead of a hospital, he ends up in prison. A guard even blatantly told his wife, he'd need an "Indian doctor" to treat him.
This kind of horrible act really burns me. In the city, if someone were to see an innocent person get a beating for no reason, you'd bet your ass there would be bystanders ready to help out a friend. (Then again, some city folk can be downright cruel themselves, but usually, we're pretty civil.)
I really hope something is done about this. I hate not being able to help, but I really hope those assholes are brought to justice.
“You hear those cops coming? They’re not going to help you. My daddy is a cop in this town, and nothing is going to happen to me. You fucking niggers are going to jail.”
This corrupt system needs to be dismantled, and it needs to happen now, before more people get hurt or killed at the hands of a cops son. This just isn't right. I do believe that if the super of the force were, you know, sane, the father of this child would be discharged, and the child would be imprisoned.

I had an editorial assignment from my Journalism teacher to write an article on how bitchy girls are. This started because one of my friends who had lunch during my journalism period started a discussion on how horrible girls are and what they're willing to do to "stay the head bitch."
We ended up dragging the conversation to my Statistics class, where two other girls decided to give their stories on what they've dealt with when it came to mean girls. Now, you might wonder what the point of me explaining myself is, but hear me out.
All week, I've been watching movies: A Cinderella Story, Daddy Day Care, White Chicks, to name a few. In every movie, there's at least one girl who tries to hurt another person. I just find it absolutely horrible that girls are portrayed so cowardly in movies and television shows. Ever seen Gossip Girl? Neither have I, but I'd assume that those girls are bitches.
Now, I hadn't even thought of this article since I finished it, but I just recently returned to Xanga. The first thing I like to do is check out the featured blogs from other sites (You know, Datingish, Autisable, etc.) and I came across this little bit: I'm The Cool Girlfriend
I wouldn't have anything against this if the author hadn't been so, well, naive. I'm saying guys shouldn't be checking out other girls if they're already dating a good one, but that's beyond my point. When it comes to these kinds of articles, I read between the lines and skip to the comments. Girls from all over, and even some anonymous started attacking the author. I'm not saying it wasn't called for (because seriously? Some things just need to be said) but this just completely proves my point.
If ANYONE tries to complain at how hard I was on girls, or how badly they're generalized, go to a random Lovelyish article or Datingish article and read the comments.
Girls are bitches. That's all I have to say.
...Or more simply put, The conversation I had with my friends Keyla, Desi and Jasmine about how bitchy girls are.
There's something wrong with girls these days. Not just girls in our school, but in general. They're catty, untrustworthy, and overall unpleasant. For example, if a girl meets another, she'll most likely end up betraying the other because of the one she met. Girls that were once good get corrupted by popular girl's influence, and then turn bad themselves. Girls have made a mark in our society as being two faced, phony and deceptive. They end up holding grudges for gosh knows how long and over petty reasons.
As Keyla put it, girls only have best friends for seasons. This is because of gossip and abuse from other girls. If a group of friends all claim to be "best", it's usually untrue, and there's always a "head of the pack." Girls actions and friend groups are like those of the wild: there is always one girl on top, and others trying to claw there way into her seat. This makes the weaker ones of the group insecure, and the ones who think they have power over others even more insincere and conniving. If one girl finds out another girl's weakness, they attack, and the girl is no longer a part of their group.
Girls are also very quick to fight. In school, no matter where you are, there is always the he-said, she-said situation. In these situations, girls are likely to fight each other over rumors. This is usually because girls take a lot of things said about them to the heart. Gosh forbid one girl tries to confront the one she believes started the rumors about her; because girls work in packs, the one confronted would get defensive and usually have the group speak for her, may it be with words or nails. It's a mess, but if there's a boy added to the equation, you can guarantee girls will get even more vicious.
One thing our group mentioned plentifully is that girls alone are cowards. Girls choose to hide behind the anonymity of wall writing and rumors. They would choose not to confront the person, but to talk badly about the person to a friend, most likely another girl. Desi said, with the utmost seriousness, if you have the balls to talk about me behind my back, have the balls to say it to my face. Girls need to own up to their truths and lies, because it makes them look cowardly when they don't.
Girls fight over the pettiest reasons; guys, dirty looks, and words said through the rumor mill. Girls shouldn't have to ever fight another girl over something a boy has done to her. Jasmine distinctly put it, if he was straying and you couldn't hold on to him, don't hate the girl who took him, hate the guy who strayed. One of the biggest things that irritated our group was girls talking about what other girl's wearing. This especially resonated with Desi, who told us of her 7th grade experience when her house burned down. There was a group of girls who would make fun of her on a daily basis because she only had a number of clothes, and no money to buy new ones. The worst part about these kinds of stories is, if the person bullied breaks down in front of their tormentor, it's ammo in their weapons. If you cry, it's weakness, and a ruthless girl will not hesitate to pounce.
Girls are highly judgmental. They will just to conclusions and automatically think that whatever they believe is right. Middle school for girls is usually the worst. There is always that one girl who has to deal with two friends that hate each other. They demand that she take a side in their arguments, and when she stays a neutral party, they both stop being her friend. It's especially rough when two girl friends who are really close fall out, because then everything that you've told that person becomes public. When kids are small, they think they know everything and they act like they're doing what's best for their former friend.
There's always a point where girls discover that hanging out with guys is a better option; there's less drama, barely any rumors, and when guys have a problem, they give and take a punch and it's over with. Girls, however, will judge that girl to no ends. Simply put, if she's hanging out with guys, she's having sex with all of them. This happens even beyond the immaturity of middle school. Keyla recalls visiting her friend from her old school, and going to his graduation. There, she saw her ex boyfriend, who she is still friends with. Now, there were other girls from Kelvyn Park there, but she didn't want to sit with them. She felt as if they were being immature and embarrassing, so instead, she sat with her ex boyfriend's family. These girls began to tell her current boyfriend, Kevin, that she had been lying about where she was and who she was with. They had even went to lengths as to say she went out with her ex's family, when she had left with her friend that she went to see.
With girls, the story is always different. As a group, we decided that we wouldn't go out of our way just to ruin each others lives. Girls who do are usually hiding ulterior motives, and usually, it's a boy.
Between girls, trust is broken, and everyone, regardless of gender, begins talking about who's doing what. Girls in general are jealous creatures. Girls need to begin trusting others, especially their significant others. They shouldn't talk about what their ex has gotten them or done. They also shouldn't get territorial at the mention of their boyfriend's ex. There is a reason they broke up and why he's dating you. Girls shouldn't be so quick to get crazy over guys.
There was a point in this entire conversation where we just agreed that there should be more Christina Fernandez’s in the world. According to Christina, she’s never had a negative encounter in her entire school experience. The point behind all this was not to publicly bash girls or to shamelessly promote Christina, but to explain to girls that what they’re doing is wrong, and that being head of a group of friends won’t make you a better person. You are in control of who you become and what you do. Don’t make the wrong choices when it comes to other people. You have the power to make life for girls good or bad. Use it wisely.
