missalexlarosa Good Morning America.
The Civil Rights Movement is happening NOW. It's not just a short section in your U.S. history book. The fight for civil rights is real and alive! When your future grandkids are in school and asking about the civil rights movement in 2015, you get to choose NOW whether or not you will have a meaningful and powerfully story to tell. Educate yourself on the issues! Stand up for justice and equality! Go out and protest! Avoid ignorance at all cost! Be able to say, yes I was part of that movement!

missalexlarosa People have been talking about the importance of size diversity for a while now! We've seen it in the #ImNoModel campaign, created in response to @lanebryant 's #ImNoAngel campaign, where @themilitantbaker calls out the brand for not showing a single roll, stretch mark, or blemish. We've seen it in the recent @buzzfeed article "This Is What Plus-Size Clothes Look Like On Plus-Size Women" by @klchirico and @iamsheridanw that went viral! We've seen it in the growing popularity of plus size bloggers like @gabifresh @everythingcurvyandchic and @garnerstyle who help customers of similar shapes and sizes visualize how these garments will work on a visibly plus size body and how to look badass while wearing them!
I love being a #VisiblyPlusSize model! I'm a size 16 and I actually look like a size 16 in my photographs lol! I think it's important for brands to hire models who are sizes 16, 18, 20, etc. so their customers can get an accurate idea of what the clothes will look like on them! It's so important for plus size women to see themselves represented in the media and that definitely includes fashion.
I commend companies like @courtneynoelleinc @modcloth and @monifcplussizes who work with models size 16+. I thank you as a #VisiblyPlusSize model and as a customer! #AlexLaRosa #PlusModel #VPSmodel

"Before you call the young people 'thugs'... We should ask America why we allow our children to live like animals." - @tamikamallory

Beautiful People,
I am certainly not an advocate for violence in any way. It's what they want. It's what they want to report on. It's what they want to spin as the reason why they are killing us when in fact it is their own systematic failures, racist & fearful views that suddenly give them the power to take our lives. We MUST stand together and respect our communities. There is no other way. With that said, I would be a liar and a fool to not understand the passion, pain and hurt that my sisters and brothers are feeling. I too feel it. We must understand what is truly happening. You cannot create a war on the people decade after decade after decade and time after time literally get away with murder and then be surprised when this happens. Truly look at the history of #Baltimore alone. This did not start with #FreddieGray. This has been the same struggle between law enforcement and the people for years. I'm on the phone with the people. I'm sending prayers. I'm with and for yall. I beg of yall... Let's be with and for each other. And yes... #BlackLivesMatter. #PrayersForBaltimore #RIPFreddieGray #StopPoliceBrutality 🏿🏿🏿️

missalexlarosa Perception is reality. This was Baltimore 2 days ago. Where were the news cameras then? Praying. #Baltimore 6d
  •   theericarenee The news cameras were there. This photo is very deceiving. The riot had already started. 6d
  •   tcwave2002 @missalexlarosa Covering the earthquake aftermath in Nepal. 6d
  •   grahamman_b @tshidi_lee1 We've always been under attack in this country unfortunately. The only difference now is that there are millions of people with pocket sized cameras and easy access to global distribution. It's the same blame game going on the same deflection of accountability for heinous crimes committed against our people that it's always been still happening. Part of me hopes this tumultuous time will yield a better tomorrow, but the realist in me says whatever gains are made now will again be eroded away 10 years or less from now like all that change that was supposed to come from 60's and 70's. 6d
  •   missalexlarosa @theericarenee oh man. I'm just praying and hoping that this somehow doesn't end up more deadly than it already is. 6d
  •   theericarenee Agreed 6d
  •   rentemspoonz I can tell you first hand from living in St. Louis that the news doesn't show up until the fires start, or windows are broken...They don't want the real story, they only want the sensationalized one... 6d
  •   aphatmac Right 6d
  •   six2sicksider The news does not/will not cover or care about the truth. But the news is not the problem. The problem is the sheep who believe what the news tells them. For once we come together and revolt against an entity responsible for murder(erick garner, ezelle ford, Kelly thomas) indefinitely, terrorism and embezelment..... and all of a sudden they become victims. 6d

missalexlarosa Bloods, Crips, and Nation of Islam members come together in nonviolent protest in Baltimore! This is what you won't see on the news! #Baltimore #blacklivesmatter 6d
  •   missalexlarosa @kathiebooo No it doesn't, but unfortunately it gets attention. I means war and violence was how the American revolutionists separated themselves from England to even start this country. The people rioting in Baltimore are completely disenfranchised and desperate for change. These folks don't have much to lose? Why not fight back if there's a chance of change. It's an unfortunate situation inequality has gotten us into. I'll be praying. Hopefully you will be too. 6d
  •   grahamman_b @kathiebooo The problem is that Black men have been largely "in control"while being bludgeoned, while being falsely accused, while being murdered, while being told none of this was actually occurring by white people for DECADES. Now that the video evidence is appearing in skids there's still little to no change as if everyone knew what was going all along, especially Christians and they never lifted a finger and many are moving into spin doctor mode attempting to claim that the mountains of video evidence are "mischaracterization"? For some people this is just too much and while I don't agree with violence I certainly empathize with the anger and frustration. God has not intended for ANY group to be subjected to this much murderous hypocrisy. 6d
  •   kathiebooo I've told you I was praying. But yes they do have a lot to lose. The only they really have is their LIFE. This is nothing more but borrowed time that we live and they are wasting it doing something displeasing to God. Ya know..? To me it's not a cope citizen or black white thing. It's these kids out here raised up wrongly by their parent to think that this is ok to put their lives in danger u know? The last thing we need is more kids dying behind something we will never be able to contain. I am praying for the good cops, kids, and innocent people of the community that are scared to death right now. If someone breaks into their home and tries to assault them they can't even call 911 ya know ...bc too much is going on down there. It's so sad. Smh. So many people are going to get hurt tonight. 6d
  •   kathiebooo Right @grahamman_b judgment day is coming and I just feel for these kids being misled. God says don't fight evil with evil. It's better to suffer for good doing than evil doings. 6d
  •   kathiebooo @missalexlarosa I just tagged u in a video it's kinda funny and look like something they'd catch me doing my kid if they were out there 6d
  •   missalexlarosa @kathiebooo you did say that. I apologize. I agree with your sediment. And I have many of the same worries as you. But I'm just urging you to look at all of the social, political, and institutional reasons that the riots are happening. It's way more than bad parenting. And when you look at the greater picture it is a race thing. And a class thing. And a power thing. That's why I suggested those reading materials. There's a lot of great information there. 6d
  •   missalexlarosa @kathiebooo ha! The video! I'd be doing the same thing lol 6d
