Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

If you’re looking for a way to do something for the people and community of Ferguson, perhaps write a check to their library. 

The address is to the library, this information is from their director, and they don’t have a way to accept anything other than a check at the moment.

We’ve seen what a sanctuary the library has become.

Campus Pride, a national organization supporting LGBT college students and groups, has released its annual list of the top 50 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities in the United States.

In years past Campus Pride has only featured the 25 top-ranking schools as shown by the Campus Pride Index, a tool the group uses to assess LGBT-friendly policies and programs at colleges across the country. This year, 56 schools achieved the maximum rating of five stars. There’s been high demand for information and schools everywhere have been taking strides to make friendlier campuses, so this year the list is expanded to a top 50. 

Just last week, the Princeton Review released its own list of LGBT-friendly and unfriendly schools, and there is very little overlap. Campus Pride says the difference is that its list is created “for and by” LGBT experts in higher ed. 

Click the link above for more info about how these schools were chosen, or click its name below for more details about its rating. Until then, here’s the list:

Amherst College
Augsburg College
Brown University
Central Washington University
Connecticut College
Cornell University
Dartmouth College
Emory University
Harvard University
Indiana University
Ithaca College
Macalester College
Northern Arizona University
Oberlin College
Oregon State University

Books. People have no idea how beautiful books are. How they taste on your fingers. How bright everything is when you light it with words.
