A white woman is promoted: Whose dick did she suck?
A man of color is promoted: Oh, great, I guess we have to “fill quotas” now.
A woman of color is promoted: j/k. That never happens.

"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.
Race horses are often given a variety of drugs to MASK PAIN, control inflammation, & enhance performance:http://peta.vg/1fe6
Three thoroughbreds die EVERY DAY in North America because of terrible injuries sustained during races.
STOP PUSHING HORSES PAST THEIR LIMITS.
It’s not just race horses either. I knew a young man who once worked with dog maintenance at a greyhound track. The animals were often fed only AFTER races, in order to encourage their speeds - the faster they ran, the sooner they’d eat. Many were quite literally left for dead when they passed their racing days. After not even a year of working there the abuse and neglect was so heart wrenching he couldn’t take it anymore, and left for a new job. Fortunately that particular track is now closed, but animal racing is still alive, well, and legal in our society. You don’t want to see dog fighting because it’s cruel to the animals, why would you want to glorify another form of cruelty?
The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.
This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).
This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.
