"The system isn’t broken, it was built this way."
sorry i reblogged this already but this exists in so many cities like taipei, taiwan sigh
This is disgusting
^Why? Why is it disgusting. You don’t know the people that live in those apartments? Maybe they give loads of money to charity. Why do you have a computer? Why do you have internet? Just give all your money to charity.
It sucks that people have to live in shanty towns, but the fact that others don’t means nothing in comparison.
If you have enough to buy a nice house, and you want to live in one, do it.
Just be sure to have a grateful heart for everything you have. Not everyone is blessed with the same good fortune as you. I’m not saying that you should not care about less fortunate people at all, but there is nothing disgusting about this picture other then the shanty town itself, and that’s not really something that can be fixed with one person, or even an apartment building full of people anyway.
If these areas weren’t right next to each other no one would say anything. People would reblog pictures of both places without a single comment. The fact that they are right next to each other is what makes this so jarring, but there are much worse places, and much better places. I don’t even know where i’m going with this rant, but the comments just made me so angry.
If you are posting for news related purposes, or it’s your own picture, or someone you know and you are sharing your experience that seems fine. But posting up pictures of someone that was brutally attacked, accidentally lit on fire, or even killed, just because you think it looks cool… that’s just sick.
Church Kidnaps Teens, Holds Them At Gunpoint As A ‘Lesson’
The fuck. What in the literal fuck. Like…. who… possibly thought this was a good idea.
Muslim people are just that… people. They aren’t all terrorists out to take over the world. They aren’t evil. I think a lot of people view them as some weird caricature of what they really are. Just like you can’t look at Fred Phelps or Joesph Kony and say that’s how all Christians are, you can’t look at Bin Laden and say that’s how all Muslims are.
Don’t judge people on their religion (or lack of it). Look at their actions, and the possible reasons for them to do those actions before you react to them.
