Iran’s Female Ninjutsu Warriors
"A report in The Atlantic said about 3000 to 3500 women in Iran regularly change from their traditional garb and dress up like ancient Japanese warriors to train in Ninjutsu to become Kunoichi, meaning female ninjas.
According to Reuters, these women are getting trained in independently run clubs throughout Iran working under the supervision of the Ministry of Sports’ Martial Arts Federation.
Ninjutsu, a Japanese martial sport, is reportedly getting popular among Muslim women in Iran as part of a revolution against misconceived notions about the role of women, powered by the patriarchal society of the country”.

5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
