Hey, I'm Sophia Alexandria McLeod. I'm single, 20, Canadian at heart, genetically human, and I play rugby for my university. I like the outdoors, lesbians, traveling, art, tattoos, and I love to lift. I can also ride my bike with no handlebars, longboarding is cool, and I blog a lot of random things.

Images of the Border Crisis in the United States.
An estimated 52,000 unaccompanied children have entered the United States from Central America since October. President Barack Obama has asked Congress for $3.7B to improve security along the border, provide better housing for the undocumented immigrants while in custody and to speed up the deportation process.
Despite the horrible conditions these children are attempting to escape, conditions that include extreme poverty and violence, the White House has said that “they expect most will ultimately be repatriated,” despite the fact that about 60% of children coming over from Central America are eligible for some kind of humanitarian protection, according to a report from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
While the problem before us must be handled immediately, it cannot be addressed without first examining it’s root causes. While our American elected officials and media would like to make us all believe that this issue is unrelated to American behavior and that it is simply the result of the inability of Central American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to protect their borders and reduce through policing their crime the truth is quite the opposite. This immigration issue that the United States is currently facing is the result of American economic and military intervention in Central America.
For decades the United States has toppled governments in Central America, fueled civil wars and most recently has escalated the War on Drugs within countries in Central America. The connection between the United States foreign policy and it’s current immigration problem cannot be ignored, every action has an effect and due to the actions taken by the United States in the past, we today see families from all over Central America attempt to flee the violence that the United States was instrumental in creating.
Spreading this like wildfire, because it needs to be seen.
This is the abhorrent state of latinos/latinas in this country. We are treated as expendable before anything else.
instead of sending them back to their homecountry with fam….fuck the system!!!!
Don’t be surprised when they bring a gun to school
that’s not even complicated you literally add 26 and 19 then simplify 2025 over 45 to be 45/1 then multiply 24 and 45 making it 1080 then add 1080 and 47 and unlock the iPad with the passcode 1-1-2-7 god bless
looks like we found ourselves a nerd
looks like we found someone capable of basic math
how is that basic math
this is basic math
the american school system
The general attitude in America seems incapable of distinguishing between “it’s okay to not be talented at math” and what it is to be talented at math. The ability to do math — any math — is conflated with talent at the subject, rather than reserving the label of talent for things that are actually beyond the most basic of maths.
This is rather simple math
I picked up my phone just now and all I could see on the screen was my face and a camera looking app I didn’t recognise, and in my confusion I managed to click a button that immediately took the most horrible selfie of me I’ve ever seen, and then proceeded to send it to the person I’m dating. I don’t know which realm of hell this particular app crawled out of but without aeroplane mode the mother of all ugly photos would’ve been unintentionally released into a very unprepared world :P
Can we take a moment
The founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, four of the greatest wizards and witches of all time …
… and they decided to have a school song that goes like,"Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts…"
I am now picturing Helga, Rowena, Salazar, and Godric all sitting around a table going “well, fuck, what rhymes with hogwarts”
