Never forget…Dorothy Counts being mocked by an entirely white audience on enrollment day at Harding High School. September 4th, 1957
and they call US savages
Never fucking forget
The people in this photo are SOME OF YA’LLS GRANDPARENTS. Not your great great great great grandparents. Your GRANDPARENTS. Your dad’s dad.
Possibly someones parent as well!
Its even worse than mere mocking. This is the full story:
In 1956, forty black students applied for transfers at a white school. At 15 years of age, on 4 September 1957, Dorothy Counts was one of the four black students enrolled at various all-white schools in the district; She was at Harry Harding High School, Charlotte, North Carolina. Three students were enrolled at other schools, including Central High School. The harassment started when the wife of John Z. Warlick, the leader of the White Citizens Council, urged the boys to “keep her out” and at the same time, implored the girls to spit on her, saying, “spit on her, girls, spit on her.” Dorothy walked by without reacting, but told the press that many people threw rocks at her—most of which landed in front of her feet—and that many spat on her back. Photographer Douglas Martin won the 1957 World Press Photo of the Year with an image of Counts being mocked by a crowd on her first day of school.
More abuse followed that day. She had trash thrown at her while eating her dinner and the teachers ignored her.The following day, she befriended two white girls, but they soon drew back because of harassment from other classmates. Her family received threatening phone calls and after four days of extensive harassment—which included a smashed car and having her locker ransacked, her father decided to take his daughter out of the school. At a press conference, he said:
It is with compassion for our native land and love for our daughter Dorothy that we withdraw her as a student at Harding High School. As long as we felt she could be protected from bodily injury and insults within the school’s walls and upon the school premises, we were willing to grant her desire to study at Harding.
Ok, y’all need to stop because this is getting embarrassing. I’m starting to lose my temper.
So just because in all your 16 years you have never gotten sick doesn’t mean that vaccines aren’t necessary. I’m 25 and I have never been in a car accident- that doesn’t mean that I don’t have to wear a seatbelt or check my mirrors when I change lanes. Your personal experience- and the experience of any one individual unvaccinated person- DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING. AT ALL. PERIOD. If you weren’t as selfish and clueless as the vibe I’m getting, you’d thank your vaccinated classmates and fellow citizens for your streak of good health. Your height to weight ratio has nothing to do with vaccines or sometimes even if you are healthy, ps.
You don’t wanna put ‘shit’ in your body? Cool. Don’t. But stay the hell away from the doctor’s office or the ER if you or someone in your house comes down with something, because the only way to fix it is to put ‘shit’ in your body to keep you from dying or having chronic life-altering after effects. And obviously the latter isn’t a priority.
Actually… You don’t trust vaccines? Fine! Why stop there! Don’t use inhalers to prevent status asthmaticus, don’t use birth control pills to prevent unwanted pregnancy and help horrific menstrual cramps, don’t use aspirin to help a headache, don’t use chemotherapy to cure cancer, don’t use insulin to keep type 1 diabetics out of fatal comas, don’t use neosporin to keep your skinned knee from getting infected.
Because if you don’t trust the science behind vaccines, why trust the rest of it?
Theoretically, what conditions would be necessary to sustain artificial nuclear fusion as an energy source?
Asked by anonymous
Currently, the problem with nuclear fusion is that there isn’t yet a chain-reaction mechanism that could create a self-sustaining fusion reaction. This is why fusion reactions either produce uncontrollably large amounts of energy with a large-scale trigger, as in fusion bombs, or— as of now, at least— produce less energy than the trigger itself on a controlled scale. Research is still ongoing to find ways to achieve “breakeven”, the point at which fusion produces more energy than is consumed in igniting the fusion fuel in the first place.
Currently, controlled fusion research has two major branches: inertial confinement and magnetic confinement. Magnetic confinement uses magnetic fields to confine the hot fusion fuel in plasma form. Inertial confinement attempts to create fusion using a radioactive pellet, known as a target, that undergoes a reaction when hit with a laser. The major issue with both is being able to deliver the trigger energy to the fuel with enough accuracy and power to start and sustain fusion without creating instabilities that reduce the efficiency of fusion.
