A boy of nine who was found hanged is believed to have killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school.

Aaron Dugmore – thought to be one of the youngest children in the UK to commit suicide – was discovered in his bedroom after being tormented for months, his parents said.

They said Aaron was threatened with a plastic knife by one Asian pupil, who warned him: ‘Next time it will be a real one.’

He was also allegedly told by another pupil that ‘all the white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.

Racism is a two way street.

Now don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.

No one, not matter their race, religion, sexuality, gender identification or physical and/or mental capabilities or appearance should have to commit suicide over shit like being bullied. NO BODY! Especially a fucking 9 year old child!

This is problematic.

Racism is not a thing against white people.

Racism is power + prejudice.

What happened to him might have been horrible. It might have been highly prejudiced, but it was not racist.

It is not your place, as white people, to attempt to define what is racist and what isn’t.

Please, spare us your white tears..

Who had the power? Who had the prejudice?

The answer to both is not “the white kid”.

And just like all arguments, this avoids the fact that the power+prejudice theory originates from a white jewish woman.

Racism: defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior or superior.

Don’t try and tell me that white people cannot be a victim of racism. You’re a fucking idiot.

Judith Barsi was born in Los Angeles, California to two immigrants who had fled the 1956 Soviet occupation of Hungary.  Her mother dreamed of her daughter becoming a successful Hollywood actress.  It soon became a reality as Barsi was a bit small for her age and had the advantage of being able to play roles of younger children.  This helped propel her career and she soon became a television staple.  She starred in over 70 commercials during the 80’s.  She often worked with Lays chips and Biz Bleach detergent.  She also appeared in numerous television shows and movies.  Barsi is probably most famous for lending her voice for the character of Ducky in the film The Land Before Time.  She also played Anne-Marie in the animated classic All Dogs Go To Heaven.  As Judith became more famous her father gained a deep sense of manic jealously and paranoia towards her.  He was mentally and physically abusive throughout her lifetime.  On July 27, 1988, Jozsef Barsi took a gun and murdered Judith and her mother.  He then dosed the bodies, himself, and the house with gasoline and started a fire.  Judith’s grave stone reads “Our Concrete Angel – Yep Yep Yep,” referring to her character Ducky’s catch phrase.

Women convicted of witchcraft in China

(via you-can-take-my-breath--away-de)

During 1983–85 American archaeologist Dr Johan Reinhard directed three surveys of archaeological sites on the summit and slopes of the mountain of Llullaillaco at the border of Argentina and Chile.

In 1999 on Llullaillaco’s summit, an Argentine-Peruvian expedition found the perfectly preserved bodies of three Inca children, sacrificed approximately 500 years earlier.

According to contemporary writings by Spanish priests, these children were participants in capacocha, a sacrificial rite that occurred in celebration of key events in the life of the Inca emperor.

The mummies are those of a 15-year-old girl, nicknamed “La doncella” (The maiden), a seven-year-old boy, and a six-year-old girl, nicknamed “La niña del rayo” (The lightning girl). The latter’s nickname reflects the fact that sometime in the 500 year period the mummy spent on the summit, it was struck by lightning, partially burning the preserved body and some of the ceremonial artifacts left with the mummies.

La Doncella, pictured above, was found wearing a magnificent headdress, which meant she was probably an aclla or Sun Virgin. That is, she was chosen and sanctified as a toddler to live with other girls and women who would become royal wives, priestesses, and sacrifices. She also wore a brown dress, and was buried with several statues. Her hair was braided elaborately and she had a few white hairs, perhaps indicating emotional stress. She and the others are believed to have been drugged with chicha, a maize beer, along with coca leaves, before being abandoned on the mountain.

Some of the boy’s clothes contained vomit mixed with blood, suggesting that he may have suffered from a pulmonary edema. It is believed that he died from suffocation. He was the only one of the mummies to be tied up, and a piece of cloth had been pulled around him tightly enough to crack his ribs and dislocate his pelvis.

Lightning Girl’s body was hit by lightning sometime after her death. She wore a headdress with a metal plate over her brow. She was buried with jars which were made around Lake Titicaca and Cuzco, showing how far she may have traveled. She is the only one of the three whose face is turned upward.

Two breast implants removed at autopsy. The one on the left was perforated by the same trauma that resulted in the woman’s death.

April 20th, 1999 tape - roughly 30 minutes before The Columbine Massacre


Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold are in the family room of the Harris home. Eric is filming. Dylan is wearing a black baseball cap on backward, exposing a “B” embroidered in white on the back of the hat - the Boston Red Sox logo. He’s wearing a plaid shirt, either dark blue or black with white; the shirt’s untucked. He’s wearing black BDUs (military-style pants) tucked into military-style boots. There are several bags on the floor, including a large maroon one.

Eric:“Say it now.”

Dylan:“Hey mom. Gotta go. It’s about a half an hour before our little judgment day. I just wanted to apologize to you guys for any crap this might instigate as far as (inaudible) or something. Just know I’m going to a better place. I didn’t like life too much and I know I’ll be happy wherever the fuck I go. So I’m gone. Good-bye. Reb…” 

Dylan takes the camera then and begins filming Eric. Eric’s also wearing a plaid shirt that’s either dark blue or black with white, with a white t-shirt on underneath. His lower half can’t be seen.

Eric:“Yea… Everyone I love, I’m really sorry about all this. I know my mom and dad will be just like.. just fucking shocked beyond belief. I’m sorry, all right. I can’t help it.”

Dylan: (interrupts) “We did what we had to do.”

Eric:“Morris, Nate, if you guys live, I want you guys to have whatever you want from my room and thecomputer room.”

Dylan adds that they can have his things as well.

Eric:“Susan, sorry. Under different circumstances it would’ve been a lot different. I want you to have that fly CD.”

Eric: (eventually) “That’s it. Sorry. Goodbye.”

Dylan: (sticks his face in the camera) “Goodbye.”

The tape ends with a brief glimpse of a sign on the wall of Eric’s bedroom, someone’s arm partially blocking it from sight. It’s the letters: CHS along with a drawing of a bomb with a lit fuse and, in bold black letters, the word “clue”. Eric and Dylan then went to Columbine High School and killed 15 people, including themselves.

Archaeological News: Tracing a Royal Y Chromosome

Researchers last week developed DNA evidence to help identify the remains of a skeleton found under a parking lot in Leicester, England, as those of Richard III, the last English king to die in battle, in 1485. But the researchers’ work is only half-done. They have made a strong but not conclusive link through the female line, and are now turning to the male side for corroboration.

Turi King, a geneticist at the University of Leicester, found a match in the mitochondrial DNA extracted from the parking lot skeleton and that of two living descendants of Anne of York, Richard III’s sister. About 1 percent of the English population carries this type. Mitochondrial DNA is bequeathed exclusively through the female line.

Chris Tyler-Smith, a geneticist at the Welcome Trust Sanger Institute near Cambridge, said the mitochondrial DNA type identified by Dr. King was “rare enough to be interesting, but not rare enough to be conclusive.” Read more.
