I honestly never thought I’d be doing this, but I’m in a situation where I don’t know where else to turn to.
Fifteen days ago, our electricity was turned off. My dad stopped paying the bills, and we now owe 3,698 dollars. The late fee for turning on the lights is 78 dollars per day. So we now owe 4868 dollars and counting.
We cannot pay this amount of money. My mom can’t go to work because of her depression, and because she is the only one who properly takes care of us. My dad cannot be trusted around us kids alone, considering he has a very strong past of being abusive to all of us. My dad refuses to go to work. He hasn’t for months. We have no hot water, electricity, heat— nothing. And it’s starting to get really, really cold here.
I live with my dad, mom, eight year old brother, thirteen year old sister, and elderly grandmother. It’s fucking terrible over here, guys. We went to Social Services every day for a week, and they have given us their final answer:
They will not turn on the lights for us so we can get the required money. They will not, and we cannot try again.
We don’t have enough money for food— we are completely out of food, drinks, everything edible. We will not be able to come up with the money any time soon.
And it’s taking a tole on everyone. My thirteen year old sister has been talking about suicide, my mom’s depression is at an all time high, my little brother constantly talks about running away, and my depression is trickling back, too. I don’t know how much longer we can last, I really, really don’t.
I can’t go into work. Not only am I in the most valuable grade of high school, being a junior and the SATs coming up, I have a list of medical issues that hinders me barely able to go to school, much less able to go to work.
We need help. Even if it’s just enough to buy dinner— we need help. And you guys are the only ones who can help us.
Here, you can send us money, even if it’s just five dollars, or a dollar, anything you have, to my PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, please, please help. If not, signal boost this to people who are in the position to help. I’m scared that one day, my mom won’t be here, or my little sister, or when I won’t be able to do this anymore. I’m scared for my little siblings, for my mom, for me. I’ve already lost a siblings. I cannot lose two more.
Please, please, help. If you have any questions, send it my way on my:
E-mail (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org),
Or send me an IM on AIM (diessomniumx).
I won’t be able to answer to it right away, obviously. We have been living at Starbucks for fifteen days.
If you guys can send us money, or signal boost this, I will honestly be forever grateful to all of you, I honestly will.

This is the shit I have to deal with when I’m nice. When I’m polite. When people tone police me and tell me “if you weren’t aggressive you might get people to listen.” I GET FUCKING LAUGHED AT. BECAUSE I’M NOT HUMAN TO THESE PEOPLE. MY FEELINGS DON’T FUCKING MATTER. Fuck you. Fuck everything. I’m done with tumblr.
AND I’m not hiding her fucking name she wants to be a racist she can own up to it.
And THIS is why I hate when people go all tone police on PoC and telling us to be more calmer and nicer. Because when we decide to be calm and saying it nicely, all you ever get is this shit, either laughing at us, telling us to shut up and mind our own business, or that we are to uptight and should fuckin assimilate. It’s why I don’t give a damn anymore about being nice to people when I call out on racist shit anymore because all you get back is shit like this.
Hun if I can give you a hug right now I would. *hugs* And you know what? More than half the time I see people claiming, “I am a gypsy” and saying how it isn’t a slur most of the time they claim things like oh my great great grandmother was a gypsy so I am one to and it isn’t a slur! Or, those people might be but raised in the U.S. or Canada and they claim that it isn’t a slur and that they are sick of people saying it is when all of the oppression died off and has been in the past. Ya fuck no bitch it isn’t in the fuckin past, Romani are still being fuckin persecuted today and get treated harshly, and going all, “gypsy isn’t a slur! my friend who is one claims it so I can use it too! oh they aren’t oppressed anymore its all in the past! it’s a FASHION statement!” Fuck every last fuckin one of you who say and believe this racist shit.
Wow, she even still has it up, wtf
So did anybody else notice the swastika in unicode in her desc or was that just me…?
I don’t see what the big deal is. It’s a personial opinion. If you’re Romani and want to identify likewise as “Gypsy”, then go for it.
Your opinion doesn’t matter unless you’re Romani, and no Roma I know calls themselves willingly “gypsy” because it’s a racial slur. We have our own language, we don’t need to be using gadže language to describe ourselves. Especially if the word has so many negative connotations.
MY OPINION DOESN’T COUNT? ORLY? :D
Go fuck yourself. (:
Seriously? San tu Rom? If you’re not Romani then yes, your opinion doesn’t count. It’s that simple. Why are white people always so aggressive when we tell them to stay out of our spaces?

TW: Rape, Murder
A Texas man accused of raping a 16-year-old girl used social media to lure her to a meeting, abduct her from her school and drive her to a river, where he killed her to keep her from testifying against him, police and a family spokeswoman said.
The man insisted in a jailhouse interview Monday that he only wanted to talk to the teen and prove his innocence but said he was overcome by “demons” once they were face-to-face.
Franklin B. Davis, 30, of the Dallas suburb of Irving, was charged with capital murder Sunday in the death of Shania Gray. Gray was last seen alive Thursday afternoon at Hebron High School in nearby Carrollton. Her body was found Saturday in a secluded area near the Trinity River.
Carrollton police say Davis confessed to arranging a meeting with Gray under false pretenses, driving her to a trail near the river and shooting her twice with a .38-caliber pistol. According to an arrest affidavit, Gray fell into the river and called Davis by his nickname: “Why, Wish?”
Davis told police he then stepped on her neck until she stopped breathing, the affidavit said.
Carrollton police spokesman Jon Stovall said in an email that police believe Davis killed Gray because she was about to testify against him.
A spokeswoman for Gray’s family, Sherry Ramsey, told The Dallas Morning News that Gray met Davis when she babysat his two children. Ramsey said that later, after the teen declined many requests to babysit, Gray told her grandmother that Davis had raped her.
The crime was reported to Mesquite police, and Davis was charged with four counts of sexual assault of a child. The trial was scheduled to start next month.
Ramsey said Davis had warned Gray he would kill her if she told anyone about the assault.
According to an arrest warrant, Davis contacted Gray through social media and pretended to be someone else in an attempt to get information about the sexual assault case. Davis then used a pre-paid cellphone to set up a meeting with Gray at her high school on Thursday.
Davis told WFAA-TV in a jailhouse interview that he tracked Gray down because he wanted to prove his innocence in the sexual assault case.
“I needed to get some kind of evidence, some kind of proof myself to show I did not have sex with her and that she’s lying,” Davis told the television station. He said he didn’t intend to harm Gray but was overcome in the moment.
“I was fighting demons,” Davis told the station. “It was like a different person was in me. It wasn’t me.”
Davis told authorities that Gray was surprised to see him but got into his car when he told her he wanted to talk to her about the sexual assault case. He said he then drove her to the remote area.
Stovall said police believe Gray was killed within an hour after she was picked up.
