Salute to the enduring spirit of the children of the slaves…

A lot of the men and women that had to endure this are still alive. Don’t let white people act like this is the distant past. It’s not.

This is my history.

I made a video about Lady GaGa and her cultural appropriation of the burqa. If you understand cultural appropriation then just skip to about 2:00.

I’m not gonna pretend that I’m the most educated person on social issues, and I am happy for people to correct me and disagree etc.

But yeah if you feel like watching a video of me ~~~~~trying~~~~~ to be intelligent HERE YOU GO.

This is the most awkward fucking video I have seen in my life.
Like yoooooooooooo, you think you got the charisma for a vlog bb?
Coz  I don’t fucking think so.

I ignored you. Then you reblogged my post twice. Then you sent me an ask and I ignored that as well. Now you’re reblogging other posts.

I criticised a pop singer. Not you. And now you’re insulting me? Okay great.

GO ON GIRL

Racism is not in your intent. Your intent is immaterial in how racist your actions are. This isn’t about you BEING a racist. It’s about you DOING A THING that is racist. Your intent doesn’t change it. Your ignorance of its meaning doesn’t change it. It’s got nothing to do with you as a person and everything to do with the meaning of your action in the context of sociocultural history.

When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.
A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way. (via evelarysa)

White people love to claim that PoC are “defensive” and “sensitive” but they’re the ones who automatically think every tweet/post/article about race or racism is talking about them personally. You don’t even have to say “white people” and they’ll think you’re talking about them.

University of Utah research backs up the argument that bisexuality is Not just a phase: Though 62% of gay men once identified as bisexual, nearly as many bisexual men — 56% — had once said they were gay, professor Lisa Diamond found. More women switched From calling themselves lesbian to calling themselves bisexual than vice versa.

Some white lady on Hoarders said her life basically collapsed when the Indian Government wouldn’t let her adopt a little Indian girl and I got to thinking…

Whenever I’d hear white people talk about adopting brown children, it always sounded like a fetish.

Especially Ethiopian children.  There are soooo many blogs circulating about that.  What gets me are the entries where they talk about doing that child’s hair, even sometimes doing the same hairstyle to one of their biological children to make it look ‘cohesive’.

Nail on the headdddddddddddd

I always love re-blogging Laverne Cox. Not only because of her eloquence, intelligence, kindness, and beauty, but also because her voice might be one of the most important in the fight against hatred in the U.S.A. today. What she has to say is crucial to the growth, peace, prosperity, and freedom of all of us. If you have the time, please watch this video.

Wealth is not the inevitable result of hard work, and anyone who claims so has made a stupid claim. Wealth results from the trading of products or services that other people value and demand. Wealth also results from the accumulation of these profits, and from having sufficient material resources to satisfy one’s own demands. Wealth is not inevitable. Nothing is inevitable.
