Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.

"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

“The reason that the government keeps old Black Panthers in prison is not because they fear that they will engage in violence or to just punish them, but rather because they fear their effects upon the youth, who are seeking leadership and will fight.”

"A mistake is only irreparable when you can’t bring yourself to admit you were wrong." - Unstuck Point of View

some of us don’t know how to sincerely apologize…some of us don’t care to learn either. irreparable mistakes aren’t necessary if we really care.

The other day on the way to work, I took a cup of day old coffee from the fridge that my SO had left untouched the day before.  It was 5:45 AM.  I was going to be trapped at work.  It was his day off.  I took the coffee.  YES, I DID.

So in return I got:

Two text messages inquiring about coffee

A missed phone call with a voice mail left about coffee, the previous days events and being ungrateful.

Two emails.  One telling me to mooch off someone else.

Two more text messages.  His last text read:

Mister: “Okay I may have overreacted but I was pissed about that coffee”

Ok.  Coffee crazy person who I have to ignore while I wait for my SO to take that body back over.

A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.

"This is not a publicity stunt"

This is a good man.

"…but you don’t act black so you’re fine."

translation: you just gave me brownie points for not fitting your stereotypical view of how black people should act.

I’m flattered.

I would just reply, “well, I was cool with you when I realized you really don’t smell like a dog.”
