“We should all take the time to appreciate the cast of Supernatural!!!”
*lists only the male actors*
Urggh, the number of times on my dash that I see people creaming themselves over the white male actors who make it to all the cons and are going ‘see guyz how much we love even the actors who were only in 4 episodes 3 years agooo aren’t we the best fandom everr’ and i’m like NO… you’re conveniently leaving out the poc and women who strangely don’t make a lot of cons ever even if they played equally significant roles

“Kiera Wilmot made an honest mistake, but the police were trying to throw away her life with a felony. After the community stood up for the girl, the charges were dropped, and she was allowed to move on with her life. Well, her greatness is really starting to shine, as she was recently granted several extraordinary opportunities through scholarship offers she has received.
Dr. Christopher Emdin, a professor of education at Columbia University, says that the schools are now very similar to prisons in terms of how they are structured, and how the inhabitants are treated. Kiera overcame her situation, but there are thousands of kids across the country who aren’t so lucky. Maybe it’s time to attack the system that is attacking us.
Check this out from Gawker:
“Kiera Wilmot, the 16-year-old honor student expelled from her high school after she allegedly ignited a chemical explosion on school property, received a full scholarship to the U.S. Space Academy, courtesy of a NASA veteran who, as a teenager, was accused of starting a forest fire during a science experiment.”
The lessons here are simple: Black kids have potential, and we can’t allow this system to destroy them. Also, hard work always pays off, especially when it comes to education. Dr. Boyce Watkins and Minister Louis Farrakhan recently held a forum called “Wealth, Education, Family and Community: A New Paradigm for Black America.” In the forum, Dr. Watkins and Min. Farrakhan both agree that African Americans are going to have to think differently when it comes to deciding what it means for your kids to be educated.”
Just when I feel like all hope is lost :) may she grow up to become another awesome woc scientist, we need more of those too.
I’m really glad that she is going to have the opportunity to blossom, and that the Universe allowed for a miracle.
