ANOUNCEMENT!!! VERY IMPORTANT!

ok, so, i found this video over the internet. it seem that the fox news channel did this documentary on emo/scene kids and it was f**ked up!!! i cried all the way through the video, it was so sick! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6AbIFnJ0f8

thats the fox video. and it was so inhumain. just watch it and read this:

i can't believe people would hurt kids just because of a style, this is way over the top! this should not be happening. kids are 'emo' and 'scene' because of **** that happened in their lives, not to show off!!! people just hurt these kids because they are too afraid of the emo style becoming bigger than it is now! i can't believe people would just beat people, ram people with cars and even KILL people for having a emo/scene style! emo/scene style means something to me because i support it and i am kinda emo. but who f**king cares whats on the outside?! apparently a LOT of people do! but they shouldn't! people are getting injured and killed because of people beating on the emo/scene style and i am so TIRED of it! i'm sick of people picking on others because of screamo music too! screamo has a meaning! it means that emo/scene kids can have a voice!

when i watched this fox video, i cried like hell...how can people do this just because of what they look like.

and then i found this girl's video about the fox special on emos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0KXgm9SVfE&feature=channel_page

watch it and then read what i have to say here:

when i watched her video, i cried too. she lost 3 friends because they commited suicide. it's sooo sad! i think that she is completely right about this whole "emo beat down" ****! this is wrong and retarded! everything she says in that video i agree with. this shouldn't be happening to them but it is, sadly.

i am posting this because i want some support. send the girl's video to friends and family by email or IM or anything! this needs AWARENESS! and help...and support! we need to help.

you can comment on this topic if you want. but the whole point of posting this here is because, i know all of you will understand this because your nice. you don't need to like the style but this is completely wrong and this needs awareness. just send this to anyone you know!!! please! thank you...

Jen, I need to rephrase things here.

Kids aren't emo because they had to deal with shit in the past. They're emo, because it's a lifestyle. being emo has got NOTHING to do with feeling f*cked up. Emo kids just tend to show more emotions and write deeper poetry and they tend to think about life and death. it's not about being depressed.

With that being said... I agree with you... it's totally bull how they are treated. people need to stop labeling and need to look at the inside rather than the outside. If you'd truly listen to emosongs, you'd see they're all kinda sad, but if you read my poetry it's all very sad as well. Why? Because it's a way of dealing with negativity. It's not about writing the most depressing music, it's an outlet, to blow off steam.

They style.. I dunno, it's just like rebelling against society, I guess. Wanting to be different, wanting to be unique. It's not about how you feel or who you are.

You know how you have to go to History class to learn about the past, so it won't be repeated? This is a HISTORY CLASS, dammit! I saw this in the 60's, with cops beating the crap out of the hippies and the black people, or worse....and I was just a little kid stuck in the city. It messes your head up to watch people be that inhumane. Check out Hitler,check out Idi Amin, check out the killing fields of Laos or My Lai in Vietnam, check out Columbine, or ANY OF THE CRAP THAT THE NETWORKS LOVE TO PLAY OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER... CAN YOU SAY "RATINGS?" THE TELEVISION REPS WILL BE THE FIRST TO SUPPOSEDLY CONDEMN THE CRAP THAT THEY SO AVIDLY, RABIDLY CHASE ALL OVER THE PLANET, SO THEY CAN IMPRINT YOUR BRAIN WITH VIOLENCE. Hey, why not? Everyone else is doing it, right? The last time I looked there was something called a conscience, a moral feeling, a sense that hurting others, no matter what is just plain WRONG...some people learn it in church, some people just KNOW IT. I am appalled that so many people think that they can kill or beat someone within an inch of thier life, just because they happen to look differently than the "status quo." What if your mother or brother got dressed up as a prank, and instead was attacked and murdered? FAIR? Sure...why not? I feel that LOVE is the only way to learn, or at the very least compassion. I wish there was a compassion pill that I could give out, and that people would actually have to learn it through going through something similar as any "victim", just hopefully not as intense as the "emo" kid, or any numbber of "statisiics" that we hear about everynight on the news. Why can't there be a good news channel, or at least one that evens out every negative story with a heartwarming one? There are lots of super people out there doing incredible stuff for others, for nothing...and yet we don't hear much about them. I guess they just don't pull in the ratings and the haters, do they? Be the change YOU want to see in the world, as Gandhi so eloquently put it.

thanks for the comment and rephrase, pam. it meant a lot.

well....basically, my point is that this whole emo bashing day thing and going after emos stuff is **** and i just wanted to let people know...like, awareness. all of this, it's crud...more than crud. what has the world come to?! i mean, really!

thanks, pam, again for the comment.

I totally agree it's simply incomprehensible to see how people could really just HURT other people... and then to think that there is not even a reason in this case... it's just because they don't agree with the lifestyle they think they know EVERYTHING about when they really don't.

And I totally agree with John. This is exactly history. It's kinda like... the apartheid, but it's just not come to extreme yet, but if it continues to be like this, it just might

yeah! they think that they can just go around and hurt people like that, it's very cruel...and sad. i hope people will just forget this "emo bashing" crap and leave people alone!

i agree with john too. well said. i couldn't agree more. i mean, there WAS and IS so much violence in the world...

and i also agree with john with the whole positive news channel. they should have something like that. the news always makes me so sad.

Thanks for the link Jen, I was shocked to see the kids getting beat up just because of the lifestyle they have chose. People should be free to lead whatever lifestyle is right for them and not live in fear of whomever may disagree!!

I am a member of a group that fights against stuff like this (You have to pledge and everything).  And when I see this sort of...brutality, it saddens me to my very core.

me too. it makes me sad to think people would just do these things. but, then i have to realize every time that thats how people are...and it's never gonna change anytime soon. unless a miracle comes...but idk.

i just posted this for awareness...trying to help. i know it's not going to change this whole THING of cruelty and terror.

i wish i could help all the people in the world.

but wishing it doesn't help etheir...

i thought of emailing this topic to everyone i know but i'm afraid of what they will think. and some people just don't care! so...it's really hard, i guess. to know about things like this and feeling hopeless...like, you can't help anyone.

I believe we can change things like this.  It's all about education.  We are in a race between education and catastrophy.  Some people are scared of things that are different.  They do not understand people who are different and so they fear them and the only way they can feel better about themselves is to lash out.

To make a real difference you have to take small steps.  It's like ripples in the water, they start small but then they grow, and grow, and grow.

Can I ask, why are you afraid of what they think?  Some people yes, will react negatively but you may find people who feel the same way you do.

Oh no, it's not dumb at all   I only asked why you were afraid to see if you were worried about violence towards you.  If that is the case then obviously don't send those people the link

OH! ok, lol. thank you.

umm. yeah, i guess i am afraid of violence towards me. just a little. i think thats why i don't feel comfortable sending the link to anyone i know. LOL.

i was just hoping people would hear about this issue on "emo bashing" and send it around or something. but i'm not demanding that. i hope you guys didn't take it the wrong way! i was just asking if you could just let people know. then it would spread awareness. ya know? but you don't have to. it's ok. lol.

I looooooooove the emo/scene kid look. Boys with dark/emo styled hair, blue eyes, eyeliner, pale skin, piercings, band shirts = yum yum. haha, i've always been attracted to that sort of look. I wish I could pull it off myself! Alas, though, I just can't seem to do it.

As far as the bashing goes, though, that's nothing new. Is it right? no. But it, like all other sorts of prejudice, will probably never be completely eradicated from the world. People fear what they don't understand, which usually leads to anger/hatred of what they don't understand, which usually leads to violence and stupidity. Sad but true.

Also, I don't think you should worry too much. Most people -don't- beat up scene/emo kids just because of how they look. and, as a girl, i'm sure you'd be safer from that sort of random violence. You could always take a self-defense course if that'd make you feel safer, though. That might be a good idea anyway. Self defense is always a handy thing to know.

Stop reading my signature. Don't deny it. You're reading it. I can see you. You're giving it the casual little once-over. How rude. Didn't your mother teach you better?
