It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.

Catering to western students in the vast land of Canada, the Banff Academy of Magical Studies is a sprawling château-style structure nestled comfortably in the snowy peaks beyond Lake Louise. The students have opted for stylish layered knitwear in place of traditional wizard robes, and are often named some of the most fashionable amongst the international wizarding community. Every winter, students would don their warmest clothing and spend hours outside casting adhesive charms on the walls of the academy so falling snow would later stick to the exterior, transforming the school into a frozen palace.

Lily was known for being a kind-hearted and talented witch, becoming Head Girl in her final year at Hogwarts. She also was an all-time favourite of her Potions Master, Professor Horace Slughorn, who noted that she was witty and charming, as well as having a knack for potions. Remus described her as having a habit of seeing the best in others, even when they could not see it themselves.
Science Penguin [x]
i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight
And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”
SO HAPPY TO SEE SCIENCE PENGUIN ON MY DASH.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.
they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting
ummm this isnt quite true. she was allegedly having sex with him in her car w the door open in view of several ppl. one of them called the police and they came to investigate.the police asked for both of their IDs she refused to give up her id and he gave up his id. this led to her arrest. im still not sure why there was the assumption of prostitution and that of course could have a racialized reason.and i listened to the audio of the arrest and i really didnt like the tone of the police officer during the whole thing like there was this racist vibe he was definitely giving off but he was basically following procedure. and as more concrete footage of the whole thing has emerged she’s become very silent
She did have to show her ID because they had probable cause…but how can you not think this incident is racialized? But she claims she wasn’t having sex with him/that there was no indecent exposure. And clearly, regardless of his defense of his actions, he was being a dick.
I don’t see how that wouldn’t have a racialized reason, honestly: Black women are often viewed as being promiscuous and detained on suspicions of being sex workers. Do you really think this would have happened to a white woman? Do you think people would have called the cops in the first place? Do you think he would have been an ass?
What concrete footage? Audio recordings of her talking to the cop? I’ve seen nothing proving she was having sex. Just that she was ~*playing the race card*~ lmao
Just a word about CA and IDs. According to CA law, you are not required to show law enforcement your ID unless you are operating a motor vehicle. CNN has been grossly misinterpreting this law on their reports. CA is not a “stop and identify” state. It’s one of those laws that is on the books but hardly any law enforcement obeys because most people simply hand over their ID willingly.
So even if the cops had probable cause to ask for ID, they have to tell her what it is. Most cops never do this. They just say, ‘i have probable cause” and then get pissed if you dare ask what they suspect you of.
It should also be noted that most cops will automatically suspect you of being up to something nefarious just because you refused to show ID, and there’s the cop’s “probable cause”. Isn’t that convenient. You are damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
As far as the allegations of them having sex in the car, it seems to be another case of people working to discredit a wronged black person. The person who banged on their car window while they were kissing called the police and reported they were having sex in the car. That doesn’t mean they were having sex. These “witnesses” knew if they exaggerated what was going on the cops would get there faster. Why? Because that’s how racism works.
And even if they were having sex in the car (which is illegal) why would the police assume SHE was a prostitute? They couldn’t be a couple having an afternoon delight in their car? No, the cops assumed she was a prostitute or maybe the nosy nellie who tipped them off used the word prostitute?. Either way, the assumption was a Black woman was doing something way more illegal than her White husband, even tho’ they were engaged in the same activity (be it kissing or sex).
Lastly, we must note that her husband said “i have her passport” when they were first stopped. That should have been sufficient for the cops. But no, they went to demand and ID from her, and when she asserted her rights to refuse without probable cause, the cops got pissy. If all they wanted to do was ID who she was, they didn’t they ask of the passport from her husband? Because they are racist assholes who wanted to fuck around with a Black woman.

House Ghost- Confident Cruz
Once a proud Mestizo man in the Mexican Army, he now spends his days confidently recalling the events leading up to his death. Never failing to include each and every individual detail up until the moment of his death. He is proud that he fought for Mexico and for the land of his ancestors against white invaders. When talked to he will talk about Mexico as his proud homeland with nothing but glory and love for his home. Anytime a student has their history incorrect or twisted with the glorification of ‘settlers’ he will quickly and sternly correct them on who the invaders were, and who’s land belonged to who. He will not tolerate lies and false information of the accounts of his people and the basis for the fighting of his territory. However if asked about his military days he will more than likely start rattling off from childhood of admiring his strong father to his days as a soldier. He also enjoys teaching those who are interested in his culture and tries to get as many students interested in Dia de les Muertos.

House Ghost- One-Eyed Jacqueline Thibodeaux.
Once a proud voodoo queen in Louisiana this woman lived with pride and loyalty to her home of Zimbabwe. After being forcibly removed from her lands, brought to Haiti, and then to Mississippi as a slave. She used not only her skill in voodoo magick to escape, but her loyalty with the other slaves on her plantation. To escape the cruelty of the plantation, her and many other slaves escaped on the underground railroad. Using both her magic and cunning she was able to escape with her friends and what remained of her family from the horrors of plantation life to Louisiana where she made a name for herself with her voodoo. Becoming a highly regarded voodoo queen she then helped those with an inclination to magick to help free her brothers and sisters trapped on plantations and then giving them refugee in her home. Soon though, news of her operation spread. Using her divination skills she found of the plot to kill her and the escaped slaves, though she could only save herself and not the newly freed men and women, or save them and not herself. She made the quick choice to save them over herself, and stood her ground where she fought tooth and nail with her magick to ensure the survival of her brothers and sisters. She however lost the fight when a white man pulled a gun and ultimate shot her in the eye by sheer dumb luck. She is both a gentle, and helpful ghost who also ensures that students are well aware of the dishonor and torture she went through in the Americas. When asked for help she always seems to know that you were going to ask for help and appears to you before you have to go and find her.

Loud, boisterous, and certainly commanding students of Bearglove do not have a hard time making a name for themselves in someway shape or form.
House Ghost- ‘Doc’ Thomas Benton
Among the house ghosts he is the most resented, due to his megalomaniac attitude and his past as a serial killer. While in medschool in the 1920’s he sought any and all information to eternal youth as the drive to be the best in his field and to never die to pass on his superior knowledge. No one knows the true nature of his evil some say it was trauma others say it lied in wait. If you ask the other house ghost they will tell you that he was evil from the start and to his very core. While he was alive he under strange circumstances became a hermit, and soon dead animals were found on his land with strange markings carved into them. And then the farmer’s daughter went missing in his town. When townspeople found him he had carved strange markings on her and was mumbling in an incorherent language before tossing her off a cliff. Everytime he’s asked about his death he gives a new story each time, about the scars on his face. The other ghosts say it was one of his evil experiments done onto himself after the town found him killing the farmer’s daughter, in an attempt to save his own life.
Location of Lavaeudeen ,the Waverly Hills Sanitarium.
Built in 1910 and expanded to the enormous abandoned hulk it is today in 1924, Waverly Hills Sanitarium was opened to house tuberculosis patients as an isolation hospital. Doctors at the hospital carried out painful experimental surgeries to treat the disease, often with bloody results. One surgery of last resort involved opening the chest cavity to insert balloons into the lungs and another involved removing ribs to allow the lungs to expand. As many as 64,000 people who were admitted to the hospital died there over the years, and at least one employee is reputed to have hung herself in the laundry room on the fourth floor in the 1930s. Those who passed away at Waverly Hills were moved through the morgue and out of the hospital through the body chute that led cadavers out the back out of sight of the patients. Most of the hospital, including the morgue and body chute, remain intact today.
Or so the muggles think, with this story and the appearance by use of charms to give this school an abandoned look it becomes the hot topic of muggle ghost hunters. Allowing students to use the charms they learned in school and a bit of leg room for the ghosts. Strange occurances that are reported by ghost hunters are just your magical children having a bit of fun. When the hospital was abandoned, magical folk sought out a place to teach and form the magical youth of America. Under the guise of ‘helping mental patients’ they sent letters to families with ‘peculiar’ children to save them from the horrors of the muggle insane aslyums. As these asylums phased out the school kept up with appearances and altered the charms to make the muggles see a more and more decrepit abandoned building.
Behind the Name of the School- As a tribute to America’s very own famous voodoo queen and a desire to pass on magick the school was named for Marie Lavaeu
