Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Reblogging this to explain why there are people of color upset about this hideous, hideous display:
I am a man of color who wears locs. My hair has been loc’d since 2005. It is clean, I maintain it monthly, moisturize it weekly and wash it as needed (this can be multiple times a month if I’m feeling athletic and trying to get my fitness on). It is loc’d to the root. I went through the early loc’ing phase when I was in college but AT NO POINT did it look dirty, unclean or unwashed.
DAILY I have people who try to connect the dots between my hair and my race and use that against me. I have people (COWORKERS) who’ve thought I was a drug dealer (I barely drink) and have people who classify me as a thug because of the way I wear the hair God gave me.
People (white) who come up to me and tell me how they”dreaded their hair for a few months but cut it out because it was so dirty, you know what I mean?” I wear my hair pulled back in a neat ponytail 97% of the time because I know all this hair makes white people nervous. Imagine if everytime someone saw you they assumed you were dirty, simply because they tried to do something you did (locs) and failed because their hair texture wasn’t correct, and instead of realizing that maybe it was just their situation, they’ve decided to apply that to everyone they meet.
And this nasty, unwashed young woman who feels the need to rebel against something (probably a shower) is sitting up proclaiming to the world that she has locs?
White privilege at work. Not only would I be unemployed if I had the audacity to traipse into my job looking like the inside of a drain, but I would immediately be classified as more of a thug than people already THINK I AM.
That’s why we’re upset. Black women can’t even wear their hair the way it grows out of their heads without it being a national scandal, yet this unwashed, unclean, clearly disturbed individual whose friends obviously have not informed her of the error of her ways will walk out in public and people will not only accept her, they will applaud her for being so different and unique.
Women like this are DIRECTLY affecting my life in that almost everyone I encounter has a friend or a cousin who is her and has given an entire LEGION of people a bad rap.
This is why cultural appropriation is harmful: when we do something and excel at it, are professional about it, look good doing it, it’s worthless. But throw it on a white body doing it the most lazy, bastardized, mediocre way ever and suddenly not only is it OK, it’s amazing! And so much better! 
*PS It really does look horrible. 

I WANT TO PRINT THIS OUT AND HAND THIS OUT TO EVERY WHITE KID IN ALL OF CALIFORNIA

This is so important and so difficult to stomach at the same time because I was one of those white people for two years (except I kept my hair very very clean, but that’s irrelevant). And here’s what’s so sickening about this — I had no idea. I had no clue that anyone would be upset by my hairstyle choice, that I was stealing from someone’s sacred ways, that I was participating in blatant racism. Cultural appropriation was the #1 reason I ended up combing them out. It felt awful, and it still feels awful to think about how many people I offended over that two year period, but it’s the truth. I am incredibly sorry for that time of my life and I wish I had the knowledge that I do now before I started that process. It wasn’t until after I combed them in that I began reading up on appropriation, then the ball dropped and I knew I couldn’t live with myself if I kept them. It’s so easy to think “it’s just a hairstyle,” or “but I’m just appreciating them!!!” or “white people had dreadlocks too?!?!?!” but you’re really missing the point. do your research. read some books. swallow your pride, and comb ‘em out. It’s a shitty, shitty feeling, but every single white person and white person with “dreadlocks” needs to know this. It doesn’t matter how good your intentions or honest your heart, don’t do it.
The Difference Between Cultural Exchange and Cultural Appropriation
Cultural Appropriation Tumblr’s Dreads tag
Can’t white people’s hair loc naturally?
My culture is not a trend.
Take it from someone who’s been there, denied it until I was blue in the face because I refused to see my privilege, and finally realized how in the wrong I was.
sidenote: a perfect example of how white people have taken something sacred from people of color and turned it into a trend/fashion statement - search the “dreadlocks” tag and count how many people of color results show up compared to white people…………

Very important.

The Mountain Goats | From TG&Y

Out behind the Safeway just before the flood,
huffed some cans of spray paint
and begin to vomit blood.
One more night in this town
is gonna break me, I just know.
Hang on to your dreams ‘til someone makes you let them go.

Stumbled on down Indian Hill,
tail between my legs.
Sick taste in my mouth,
Folgers crystals and hard boiled eggs.
If I can’t run away tonight,
I don’t know what I’ll do.
Hang on to your dreams ‘til someone beats them out of you.

Do what you have to do.
Go where you have to go.
When the time comes to loosen up your grip, you’ll know.

Called my friend in New York,
three thousand miles away.
Half-way through her metamorphosis, nothing I could say.
Poured my small resentments like rare and priceless gems.
Hang on to your dreams until there’s nothing left of them.
