I'd say that 80% of students currently attending a four-year university would be better served by community college.

According to some studies men and women experience violence at the same rate however there are fewer resources to help men. They stay in abusive relationships the same reasons as women do such as valuing the importance of marriage and avoiding the issue of child custody. In 2014 The National Domestic Violence recorded 6,960 interactions from male victims and in 2016 those interactions nearly doubled. Another study revealed that 16% of men recalled people at the domestic violence hotlines making fun of or dismissing them while 8% found them to be "very helpful". Even if statistics point out that women experience domestic violence at a higher rate than men that doesn't dismiss the fact that men can experience it too. Creating stigmas only hurts male victims because their situation is often overlooked or taken very lightly. The bias behind tackling domestic violence is mind boggling as we are bombarded with flyers, billboards, and posts on social media; giving us this skewed impression that only women can be victims of domestic violence. If people really cared about these victims they would not place priority on one group over another. Bringing male victims into the spotlight doesn't overshadow female victims. This should be treated as a human issue not some twisted opportunity to brag how oppressed one group of people are. More cities definitely need to follow Dallas's example and end the stigma behind domestic violence. (By the way the guy isn't "Jeff" he's the Manager of the Taylor House in Arkansas).

Terimakasih guruku yang telah membimbing kami menuju ke arah yang lebih baik. You are the best😘💞

today i shared something personal that i thought i'd never reveal in the workplace. but it's so important for we who overcome what's been unfairly thrown at us to help put an end to #stigmas by using our voices and our experiences as the powerful tools that they are. it took me a long time to realize that i'm not a victim who should be ashamed, but rather a #survivor who should feel proud of what i've overcome and how my experiences have shaped me to be a better person. and the most incredible part of sharing my not-so-shameful not-so-secret was the warmth and love and appreciation i received in return. that was something new to me, and something that will leave me forever grateful to be a part of the #vaynermedia family, and to be surrounded by such magical and inspirational #women every day. my heart is so full tonight. ✌🏻

7.21.2017 "Honestly it wouldn't be smart for me to go, but I wanna... I feel like something or someone I need is there." I searched for any other emotion I could find other than upset. Truthfully, the conference folks were fair in their pricing & their email explaining why there was no non-profit discount.
Yet, my mind was full of treacherous scenes of the conference planners reading my email & pleas via social media, mocking me for my approach & audacity to even ask. "Black folks always want a handout!" Or "See that's the reason why black business can't flourish, black folks never want to pay full price for anything!" These were some of the things I imagined happened when they saw my appeal, but they were only my imagination. This wasn't even the sidebar commentary of that one negative friend who always attacks people when you tell them why something did not go your way. It was just me, fighting not to become that negative friend to myself.
My guess was I probably felt that way because I grew up refusing to ask for discounts, 95% because I was black, 5% because I thought it was unfair.
The economic stigmas associated with being black were so strong in my mind that most times I made decisions for no other reason than to not be the "typical" black person. I bought things I couldn't afford just to convince the seller I could afford it. I gave large tips just to showcase that I wasn't "that" type of black person looking for the hookup, the one I assumed they were expecting anytime they saw someone like me walk into their business.

Looking back, I imagine that every salesperson I tried to convince probably saw right through my act. Looking back, there is no wonder why I found myself rebuilding my personal finances & working myself out of homelessness.
Although I didn't get the discount I was hoping for, the process of making a socialmedia mockery of myself served as a means to tear down the proverbial curtains around my mind & heart, allowing the outcome to shine light on some of the dark areas I didn't realize existed.
No, I won't be attending afrotech because truth is, it's not financially wise for me. But I hope you'll support @blavity anyway you can!

❝Be yourself. Don't think about what other people are thinking of you, because they're probably feeling the same kind of scared, horrible feelings that everyone does.

I know people only mean well when they tell you to stay strong, but how can you not be strong when you have no choice? Today I'll say the opposite, allow yourself to be weak and dive deep into the dark moments of not knowing where the strength is going to come from, whilst feeling at a low point. Before being a parent you are a human being, therefore surf the waves of your emotions and allow yourself to feel the burden that you carry... Being strong in a time when you dont have any strength only makes you hard, angry and bitter, and this is not the enviroment that you want to raise your child/ren in.
.

The amount of pressure that is put onto single mother's is ridiculous, we really do need to just walk around with a cape and a Superwoman sign on our chest... Until society sees the vulnerability in our situation and has a bit more compassion for the role that we play in society, the characteristics of single mother's will forever continue to be depleted... We need to be more cautious and understand the level of ones human boundaries being pushed when you are left in the position to raise your child/ren alone and be more supportive instead of blaming us for all statistical pitfalls and being judgemental... So today we speak up for single mothers around the world and say "No! Today, we will not be strong"... 🙏🏾🎬 #absentmovieuk .

Leshia Jiron is a Pueblo City Council candidate with great representation of how diversity can improve our cities and towns. If it's done correctly, legally and by giving back to the communities in which they operate, cannabis and hemp producers can add value to undeserved areas. Leisha will be joining us on October 22nd.
