Okla. cop charged with assaulting 8 black women; NAACP seeks hate crime charges
 An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with raping or sexually abusing eight black women, and the NAACP is asking the U.S. Justice Department to file hate crime charges.
Officer Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, was charged with 16 counts, including first-degree rape, sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy, indecent exposure and stalking, ABC-affiliated KOCO-TV reported.
Mr. Holtzclaw is accused of raping at least two women while on duty and forcing several women to expose themselves and perform sex acts to keep themselves from being arrested.
The alleged victims, all black women, ranged from ages 34 to 58. Police suspect there may be more.
Anthony Douglas, president of the Oklahoma NAACP, told KOCO they plan to ask the U.S. attorney general to review the case and elevate the charges to hate crimes.
Friends and family say Mr. Holtzclaw is a victim of false accusations.
A Facebook page called “Justice for Daniel Holtzclaw” has more than 500 supporters. A GoFundMe page under the same name has raised more than $7,300 from nearly 40 donors for Mr. Holtzclaw’s legal fees.
“Daniel Holtzclaw will be vindicated, and will prevail,” the page states.

Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.

when someone asks what its like to be young these days

There’s a stereotype that black people are lazy. I don’t know if that’s true, but I know white people went all the way to Africa to get out of doing work.

This is my sister, Heather. 11 years ago she was born with Spina Bifida. Spina Bifida means you are born with a hole in your back affecting your spinal cord. She has been in a wheel chair since she was about 3.  She has never truly been able to walk without assistance. She has gone through 19 surgeries and the 20th is coming up in December. We have contacted “Make A Wish Foundation” and we are waiting to go through the process. Her biggest wish is to meet the cast and crew of Supernatural (her favorite show) in Vancouver on the set.  Could all of you sweet supernatural fans help support Heather, on the pursuit of her BIGGEST WISH EVER!!! You can help by reblogging this, spreading the word, or sending this to any cast or crew of SPN. 

Thank you for the love and support.
