"

She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?

Hate crime stats in the US…
Source: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2014/04/15/when-it-comes-to-hate-crimes-atheist-victims-are-rare/

this shit is real, it’s happening and we need to talk about it

So I went back to the source data for the OP and made a graph that’s adjusted for the percentage of the U.S. population in each religious group.
I couldn’t find the property crimes/crimes against persons break down used above, just a single combined number. Nevertheless, the results highlight things a bit. 

It should be noted that anti-person crimes happen less often but also have a potential to be far worse, and using visual estimates of the first graph (and the fact that there are twice as many Jews as Muslims), Muslims and Jews have fairly comparable chances of being victims of anti-person crimes.
The two meta-categories (things/people associated with multiple religions, things/people associate with a religion other to the perpetrator) don’t really apply to this graph, so I couldn’t include them.
So yeah, in ground breaking news Antisemitism and Islamophobia are major things in the US. Anyone wonder whether US military support for Zionist Israel is anything more than a flexing of imperial power should probably look at this and think again. 
That said, I would guess the contradiction between foreign policy and domestic hate crimes probably reflects a higher level (but still a minority) of violently aggressive antisemites, but a full majority of the population not really thinking of Muslim lives as being worth caring about? idk.

"You are enough. Paint it on your mirrors, on the back of your eyelids, drown it in your stomach, sing it in every word you say. You are never too much. Eat your food, sleep eight hours, walk like you love yourself. You are enough. Say it in your sleep, mantras to carry you through your day. There is never enough of you. You are a thirst that is never quenched. I crave you when you’re away. I love every piece of you. But I cannot make you love yourself."
— Michelle K., You Are Enough.  (via cold-winter-days)


"[To Kill A Mockingbird’s] moral centre resides in a white male redeemer. That might account for some of its popularity and longevity, [but] it also defines and – to an extent – limits its moral and ethical vision. […] Both the strength and the weakness of the book is that it is, in the end, a book about white people."
— Walter Johnson on Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.
