“What Kind of Life Will My Child Have?” Answered By Folks Who Know

“The best part? Everyone in this video has Down syndrome. And they focus on the good things — reminding people, especially parents who might be worried about what the journey of parenting a child with Down syndrome will be like, that people who have Down syndrome can do all the important things that any parent values. They can go to school, travel, work, make friends, and express their love for their parents, friends, and family. They’re honest about the fact that it can be hard—but isn’t parenting always hard?”

This video comes at an especially significant time considering the recent story of a mom leaving her husband and son because he was born with down syndrome.

LAPD celebrate Michael Brown’s killing with racist song

TW for Racism and continued police violence against Michael Brown

A retired LAPD officer held a fundraiser where about half of those in attendance were on the force. In the salon article below there is video of the following song being sung;
“Michael Brown learned a lesson about a messin’
With a badass policeman
And he’s bad, bad Michael Brown
Baddest thug in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog.

Two men took to fightin’
And Michael punched in through the door
And Michael looked like some old Swiss cheese
His brain was splattered on the floor

And he’s dead, dead Michael Brown
Deadest man in the whole damn town
His whole life’s long gone
Deader than a roadkill dog.”

Just another ‘bad apple’? Looks like he’s not falling far from the ORCHARD
