"We live in a society that sees black kids as both less innocent and older than white children. A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that “black boys can be seen as responsible for their actions at an age when white boys still benefit from the assumption that children are essentially innocent.” The U.S. Department of Education revealed in a report that black children face discrimination as early as pre-school. This systemic dehumanization has life-altering results in the case of, say, Dajerria Beckton who was tackled at a pool party, or the life-ending case of Tamir Rice. "
"Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly on Tuesday described the #BlackLivesMatter movement as an "anarchistic group" that wants "to tear down the country."
O'Reilly's remarks are no far cry from his often offensive and controversial comments -- but his latest segment left many activists beyond outraged. Among them was #BlackLivesMatter co-founder Patrisse Cullors who joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to discuss his remarks and express her frustration.
"I watched it and was mortified," Cullors told HuffPost Live Host Marc Lamont Hill. "It's pundits like him that fuel for folks like Dylann Roof to have ammunition."

The indictment came as authorities also released a video depicting the incident on July 19, in which Tensing is seen shooting DuBose seconds after DuBose’s car rolled slightly forward.
DuBose's family praised the indictment in a press conference after the announcement. Still, DuBose's sister, Terina Allen, 42, told reporters that without the video footage her brother's death would have been written off as justified. She said Tensing's fellow cops would have corroborated his story. " ... See MoreSee Less

"In a nutshell, a Mystery Trip is when a group of friends decides on a date and a budget and one member of the group takes charge of all the planning (from flights to lodging to meals), only revealing the destination to the rest of the friends right before they leave. You rotate who plans it every year."
