Ayad Brissam Karim, from Iraq, holds a picture of himself taken before his “accident.” US helicopters attacked the vegetable field where he played, leaving him blind in both eyes and with burns to his face.
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.

One year ago today, one of the women I love most passed away. My grandmother was one of the most influential people to me growing up, she was like a second mother to me, she took us in, she basically raised us alongside my parents, and at the end of her life she fought an intense physical battle. Although I’ve accepted what is I still pray for her (it’s the least I can do) and wish you would all do the same.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon. My really good friend’s father just passed away. He was a beloved teacher and scholar for our community, and his last words were the shahadah.
Please make dua for him and his family and that they be reunited in Jannatul Firdous, ameen.
The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

Don’t do it. You and all y’all know good and well that is NOT her.
Yesss Imma use that “its too hot to talk” excuse from now on.
“A little bit of Monica in my life,
A little bit of Erica by my side,
A little bit of Rita is all I need,
A little bit of Tina is what I see,
A little bit of Sandra in the sun,
A little bit of Mary all night long,
A little bit of Jessica, here I am…”
If you don’t know this reference, you’re definitely too young for me.
You know you sang it in your head.
I sang it in my head holy shit
"A little bit of you makes me a man aaaaaahhhhhh"

WHEN WILL YOUR FAVE???
I don’t understand how all Muslims are called terrorists because of what one group of 19 extremist men did 13 years ago.
But white people aren’t called terrorists when they invaded their countries, killed millions of civilians, when they shoot up schools, shoot up movie theaters, and kill random POC. Isn’t that something.

this hits home so hard
May you weave peace into the intricate fabric of Pakistan,who in recent times, has gotten tangled in the discomfort of this Dunya—- let it be so that every thread of injustice and chaos is overwhelmed by love and compassion. Let it be so that every Muslim…
