Poor father sells all his land so 13-year-old daughter can enroll in microbiology master’s program in India
In a country where many girls are still discouraged from going to school, Sushma Verma is having anything but a typical childhood.
The 13-year-old girl from a poor family in north India has enrolled in a master’s degree in microbiology, after her father sold his land to pay for some of his daughter’s tuition in the hope of catapulting her into India’s growing middle class.
Verma finished high school at 7 and earned an undergraduate degree at age 13 — milestones she said were possible only with the sacrifices and encouragement of her uneducated and impoverished parents.
“They allowed me to do what I wanted to do,” Verma said in an interview, speaking her native language of Hindi. “I hope that other parents don’t impose their choices on their children.” (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)

Welcome to the new internet. 
It is very possible, after today, for the internet to be separated into tiers, like cable, forcing you to pay extra to access certain sites. The world wide web won’t be so world wide if you can’t access certain sites because you don’t want to pay an extra $50 to access it. 
Paying attention now? 

Don’t forget to add your voice! www.savetheinternet.comOr read more on npr.

Guys, this is important.
I repeat: THIS IS IMPORTANT.
Sign the petition and pass it on!

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN IF WE DON’T DO SOMETHING TO STOP IT. NET NEUTRALITY IS A BIG FUCKING DEAL AND IT’S THE ONLY REASON WE’RE ALL ON HERE TODAY.
Not only does it make it harder for people to afford/access certain websites, but it will make it harder for small businesses and amature websites to continue running online. They will be expected to pay service providers in order to make their site accessible to the public. So this WORKS BOTH WAYS when it comes to hurting online freedom and communication.
tl;dr this will RUIN THE INTERNET AS WE KNOW IT so please sign and do everything you can to help please and thank.

Don’t you dare ever tell me skin color doesn’t matter. It does.

Jet Magazine. Wonder what year this was, and how many times this happened, cause you know this wasn’t the only time it happened. White sociopathy in full effect.

This is from September of 1955. Those kids are probably still alive. Damn.

But I thought mixed babies got rid of racism. (sarcasm)
