==========

I would like to post the official numbers from the centers for disease control and Federal Bureau of Investigation
In 2013 there were roughly 32,000 deaths from guns.
19,200 were suicides, thats 60% of what the media reports as “gun violence”
960 were accidents
1280 were justified homicides
10,560 were actual homicides
The FBI reports that approximately 80% of homicides are directly gang on gang violence
That leaves 2112 in a society of 312,000,000 people

Now lets do some basic math
>You have a 0.000102564% chance of being shot
>0.00000984% chance if you arent a gang member or planning on killing yourself

The United States has a staggeringly low rate of gun violence. Period.

Tom Hiddleston films scenes for the new horror movie ‘Crimson Peak’ in Toronto on April 17, 2014 [HQ]

the-unpopular-opinions:

As a Black person it annoys me that almost no attention is given to the Middle East slave trade, which by most estimates enslaved and killed even more Africans than the Atlantic slave trade. The best non-ideological estimates say 19 million Africans died in the Middle-East slave trade. (Just like in the Atlantic slave trade, during the Middle East slave trade for every one person who became a slave many more died in the capture and transport process) In today’s population numbers 19 million is the equivalent of 360 million people dying, making it one of the worst events in human history.
The reason people mostly ignore the Middle-East slave trade is because it was perpetrated by Muslims, and some people are uncomfortable criticizing Muslims.
The Middle Eastern Slave trade predated the Atlantic Slave trade, and continued long after the Atlantic slave trade had been abolished. (And the Middle Eastern slave trade was only abolished by outside pressure, not from within) In fact, in the countries of Sudan and Mauritania enslavement of Black Africans by Arab Muslims continues to this day.
In my experience Muslims either don’t talk about slavery in Islam at all or try to whitewash it by saying slaves are theoretically supposed to be treated better in Islam, but the truth is Islamic slavery was often just as brutal as European/Americas slavery, and as I mentioned it ended up killing even more people than slavery in Europe/Americas.
Slavery is embedded in Islamic law and history. In fact, the Prophet Mohammed himself was a slave trader and slave owner, who owned dozens of slaves including female sex slaves. The Koran also institutionalizes and allows slavery in several verses (Koran 33:50, 4:24, 16:75, 23:5-6, 8:69, 24:32)
I understand that these days most Muslims don’t support slavery, but the silence and whitewashing of slavery in Islam really annoys me, especially since some slavery is still going on in some Muslim countries.
TL;DR: It’s wrong the Islamic Slave Trade gets almost no attention, especially since it killed even more Africans than the equally-evil Atlantic trade. Muslims need to admit the role slavery has played in the Islamic religion and their history, and should fight the slavery that still exists in Muslim countries and stop ignoring/whitewashing it.

Yale Undergrad Community Service Organization Rejects Pro-Life Group

So Yale’s community service umbrella organization just rejected a pro-life group because it’s work helping pregnant women who choose to carry their children to term apparently didn’t qualify as “social justice.” The hypocrisy of the left is astounding.
