It’s no secret that slavery didn’t end after the Civil War and instead evolved into something known as Slave Codes.

The laws were designed to maintain the same system of White supremacy that occurred under slavery. States and cities used the law to arrest mostly Black men for vagrancy, among other minor infractions, and put them to work picking cotton, farming, and building the nation’s infrastructure through a convict leasing system.

The laws allegedly went out the door after World War II, but the U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday released a damning report that revealed a modern-day version of the codes operating in Ferguson, Mo.

The report comes in the aftermath of angry and ongoing protests that erupted after 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teen, was shot and killed last summer by White Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Wilson was cleared in…

Kids React to Gay Marriage

I was surfing around the web, mainly YouTube, trying to decide on my last post for today. I’m so happy to have found this video. To me, it’s genuine, candid, truthful, sensitive, logical and all-telling.

“I’m a senior citizen. I married the love of my life in January 2015!! Waited all my life for it to be legal under the eyes of human law.

It’s endearing and gives me hope that the new generation, coming up … will be open and free of prejudice for marriage equality.

That is … if no prejudiced person gets to them first. All of their reactions touched my heart! …. and the hope is definitely there!!

Rock on!!!”

When the this video was filmed, there were only 14 states where it was legal for LGBT couples to marry. At the time of this post, that number has risen to 37. Only 13 more to go. There’s no stopping this wave.

NationW

TheFineBros showed 13 children between the ages of 5 and 13 two different viral proposal videos – one of a man proposing to a man, and another of a woman proposing to a woman – and filmed their reactions.

K1K2

Some of the kids were definitely a little bit confused at first.

K3

But for the most part they thought the videos were really cute.

K4K5

And didn’t quite get why these adorable proposals would upset anyone.

K6

This was the face that one kid made when he found out that only 14 U.S. states allow same-sex marriage.

K7K8

When asked what they think about giving gays the same rights as married couples, but not the title, they were pretty frustrated.

K9K10

All in all, they were very open-minded.

Ringling Bros. Circus eliminating elephant acts amid public concerns

POLK CITY, Fla. – The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will phase out the show’s iconic elephants from its performances by 2018, telling The Associated Press exclusively that growing public concern about how the animals are treated led to the decision.

Municipalities have passed ordinances banning the use of exotic show animals or tools such as bullhook

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus didn’t really get a conscience.

Instead, they started to get worried about getting poor.

This morning the largest circus company in the U.S. told AP reporter Tamara Lush that it would phase out all elephants of its shows by 2018.

But it wasn’t necessarily because of public outcry over the use of bullhooks, an handling tool that animal-rights groups say is a form of torture; or the generally questionable decision to force exotic animals to perform.

Waddle all the Way …. “Penguin Fail”!!

Fauna: An Adorable Blooper Reel of Penguins Slipping on Ice

For Penguin Fail, above, the filmmakers behind the BBC documentary Spy in the Huddle combed through their mountain of footage to capture the most awkward and hilarious moments. With nearly a million views since the video went live on YouTube earlier this month, they have a viral hit on their hands.

You might think that these aquatic birds would be surefooted on icy terrain but they slip and tumble just like us bipedal humans. Luckily, thanks to their round construction, they seem to bounce rather than collapse. Some even seem human when they recover: They collect themselves, shake it off, and then look around to see if anyone else noticed. 

Some of the penguin’s-eye-view shots in the film might have been captured with the “snowball cam,” one of many “spycams” John Downer Productions used in the making of the film.

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have counter-shaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers.

Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.

Although all penguin species are native to the Southern Hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Galápagos penguin, lives near the equator.

Kim told reporters that he was angry over ongoing annual U.S.-South Korea military exercises. North Korea called the attack “righteous punishment” against the U.S.

But it wasn’t necessarily because of public outcry over the use of bullhooks, which animal-rights groups say is a form of torture; or the generally questionable decision to force exotic animals to perform.

“We’re not reacting to our critics,” Ringling parent company president Kenneth Feld told Lush.

Instead, he said, cities and counties have begun passing what he referred to as “anti-circus” and “anti-elephant” ordinances, and the cost of fighting legislation in each jurisdiction was beginning to mount.

“All of the resources used to fight these things can be put towards the elephants,” he said.

The most recent such ordinance came just a…
