Obama on gay adoption 


yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy

Comforting to know that one of the most powerful men in the world accepts wild simplifications of actual statistics. A women does deserve equal pay for equal work… and statistics show that they do receive it. Studies show that in the same field, women make at least $0.98 for every dollar a man makes, and in some professions, they even make more. The wage gap comes from choices women make, as they tend to gravitate toward jobs in education, health, and humanities, which pay less than the jobs men gravitate toward in science and engineering.The blame for this “wage gap” should be placed on parents and teachers who promote gender stereotypes, and try to steer girls away from math and science. This video highlights and explains these points:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwogDPh-SowSick of this site and all it’s lack of knowledge.

First female black student-president at nation’s most expensive prep school is forced to resign after ‘offensive’ photographs of her mocking ‘typical white classmates’ emerge online
The former black student body president at a pricey New Jersey prep school was forced to resign from her leadership position earlier this year after she posted a series of photos on the Internet, in which she is seen dressed as what she describes to be the typical male, white student at the school.
In the photos, former Lawrenceville School Student Body President Maya Peterson is seen wearing L.L. Bean duck boots, a Yale University sweatshirt and is holding a hockey stick, which she says is representative of the typical ‘Lawrenceville boi.’
In addition to the photos, she added hashtags like ‘#romney2016,’ ‘#confederate,’ and ‘#peakedinhighschool.’
Peterson explains that the photos were meant as a joke in response to complaints made by students about her senior photos, in which she and 10 friends - all of whom were black - are seen raising their fists in a ‘Black Power’ salute. 
'I understand why I hurt people’s feelings, but I didn’t become president to make sure rich white guys had more representation on campus,' she told the website. 'Let’s be honest. They’re not the ones that feel uncomfortable here.'
Some of Peterson’s classmates, however, didn’t see the humor in her ‘racist’ photos.
'You’re the student body president, and you’re mocking and blatantly insulting a large group of the school’s male population,' one student commented on the photo.
Peterson’s response to the comment only made things worse.
'Yes, I am making a mockery of the right-wing, confederate-flag hanging, openly misogynistic Lawrentians,' Peterson responded. 'If that’s a large portion of the school’s male population, then I think the issue is not with my bringing attention to it in a lighthearted way, but rather why no one has brought attention to it before…'
Both students and faculty members felt the images were offensive, and that ‘it was not fitting of a student leader to make comments mocking members of the community,’ Dean of Students Nancy Thomas told the Lawrenceville student paper.
Peterson’s take on race has irritated her classmates in the past, as well.
In 2012, following the re-election of President Barack Obama, Peterson wrote on Facebook about how proud she was that an African-American was president - and threw in a sarcastic jab at white people.
'As a black and Latino, gay woman in the United States of America, today is a momentous day,' she wrote. 'I’m sorry to all the rich white men who have failed to elect a president that endorses their greed.'
Some of her classmates felt the Facebook post was racist.
'I’m gonna have to assume from your political beliefs and what you’ve said that you do not pay for your Lawrenceville tuition in its entirety,' one student wrote. 'But do you know who pays for that? Yeah, that would be all those greedy white men who actually worked for their fortune, not relied on the government to support them. Just saying.'
Peterson’s family paid full tuition at the school.
Peterson’s getting elected student body president worried many of her classmates, as they believed she was alienating a large portion of the student body with her controversial comments about white classmates
One former student said Peterson’s photos - and overall attitude, ‘violated the spirit of the Lawrenceville community.’
'It was hateful. It wasn’t inclusive,' the student, identified only as David, said. 'When I think of Maya Peterson, I don’t think of someone who is an avid proponent of progress or of inclusiveness. I think of someone who is hateful. She had a hateful spirit.

Lord look at this madness
I SUPPORT MAYA PETERSON!!!!

I have never felt more love for someone that I have never met than I do for this young woman.  I thought she would apologize but in the boldness of her reasoning I saw no lies.
Maya Paterson for some public office in the future?  Presidency maybe..

Blackface African parties: Silence
Native American mocking parties-Silence
Urban Black culture mocking parties-Silence
Black woman with a hockey stick-OMG REVERSE RACISM!!!
I honestly believe she was making a point and their reaction made her point perfectly. 

MAYA PETERSON 2016!

She was basically making a point.
White folks proved her point.
End of discussion.

screw president, can she become empress of Earth.
I have found my queen

She’s been one of my mutual followers on instagram and tumblr for a few years now. I didn’t even realize it was her until I opened the article. White people are just mad that she’s not scared to speak the truth. They’re mad that she’s saying and doing shit honestly and they can’t handle it. I don’t see anything racist about her actions compared to the clearly racist things they do. I’m proud of her for being so young and awake. I’m tired of these white people who think POC should just sit back and be quiet. But only open our mouths if its to entertain them or teach them how to “twerk” their backs and shoulders.

Why is she being hailed as a hero for intentionally isolating large portions of the student body she was elected to represent? How is dressing up as a stereotypical white male at her university “making a point”? How is perpetuating racial stereotypes (of any race, not just whites), going to help anyone?  She’s done nothing worthy of praise. I don’t understand half the “activists” on Tumblr…
