In direct violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, the state of South Dakota takes Lakota children from their families and their communities and places them in non-Native foster care homes. South Dakota does this while state-licensed Native foster care homes sit empty. Why?
Follow the Money. Lakota foster care children are indeed “money-makers” for the State of South Dakota, which classifies ALL Lakota children as “Special Needs Children”, thereby authorizing the State of South Dakota to collect up to $79,000 per child, amounting to some $65 million in federal monies per year for the state.
The Lakota People’s Law Project is working with the Lakota tribes in South Dakota to put an end to this injustice. Five tribes have submitted Title IV Federal Planning Grant Applications to implement their own Child and Family Services Programs and have federal money redirected to the tribes rather than through the corrupt state systems.

…I had NO idea this was going on.
There should be SOME safeguards against children being classified as “special needs” based on race.

everyone else: stop being so full of urself
things we said in school

Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.
and thank you
