You cannot be racist to white people

just like you can’t fire your boss

because you don’t have that power

Keke Palmer geting emotional in an interview with Raven Symone (x)

This is very important. I’m glad both of them had this moment. Raven has been working and grinding longer than most of us have been able to talk and walk. She deserves all the praises.

Its been four/five days since I started this gofundme donation site to help out me and my friends, who are depressed, penniless, and threatened to be evicted.

And yet, this is all that’s happened. Really tumblr? Is that the best you can do? I have come begging and pleading for help, and yet all I get is my close friends reblogging my first post over and over and over and it going no where.

One person, one close friend, donated that $15. Out of 127 people who have visited my page, only one friend had the heart to do something.

Please, for the love of all things holy and unholy, I beg of you, go donate to my gofundme page. Reblog this post. You have no reason not to. Reblog the original post, if you feel like reblogging that one instead of this one.

I need donations and reblogs. If you can’t donate, reblog. If you CAN donate, reblog too! I need you guys, I really really need you guys to do this for me.

It takes five seconds to reblog this post. And what you’re doing by reblogging it means more to me than you can imagine.

For the past few months, I have been promoting commissions on Tumblr because I’m going through a fairly dark stage in my life. I’ve just started living out on my own and I’m in a town where it’s near impossible to get a job anywhere. At this point in time, it would be futile to get a summer job since it wouldn’t last very long, so my only method of income is through commissions. I’ve created signage for my regular hand drawn and pixel commissions, but yielded little to no interest. Other people on Tumblr are in a similar spot as I am, relying only on commissions as a means of keeping up with bills and getting food to eat. It’s approaching the middle of the month and I currently have $38 to my name, just a little over $200 short of my intended goal. And no matter how many times I post my information, no matter how many times I bring up these offers, no matter what I do and how I go about presenting it…there’s not a lot of people who are interested. There’s honestly no point in posting these kinds of journals if nobody’s going to take time to realize that there’s artists who need money to survive. It sickens me that some people out there can be apathetic, not caring that someone out there with potential could be facing starvation or homelessness because they’re not given a chance.
This is my job. This is a labor of love and it’s the only thing that will keep me afloat. It helps me buy food. It helps me buy things I need to take care of myself. It helps me keep a roof over my head. I NEED COMMISSIONS IN ORDER TO SURVIVE. IF I DON’T I WILL BECOME HOMELESS. I HAVE NOWHERE TO GO IN THIS TOWN AND I WILL PROBABLY DIE IF I END UP ON THE STREETS. I don’t know how else to explain this.
Unless I start seeing results for potential new commissions, this will be the last journal I am going to make. Otherwise, this is no longer worth my time and effort to promote commissions here on Tumblr. I’m tired of asking nicely. HELP ME.

One year later, Rachel Jeantel graduates high school, blames herself for racist juryJuly 15, 2014
Rachel Jeantel never expected the amount of scrutiny placed on her when she was pushed into the national spotlight last June when she took the stand as the prosecution’s ‘star witness’ in the trial that found George Zimmerman not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin. 
From the moment she flashed across our television screens, Rachel was consistently teased and tormented because of how she looked and the fact that she, at the time, could only read at a third grade reading level.
She recently sat down with CNN and revealed that after the trial ended she partially blamed herself for the verdict.

CNN: Were you blaming yourself when George Zimmerman went free.
RJ: A little bit.
CNN: Did you think you should have said something different, or acted differently.
RJ: Yeah, act different.
CNN: You think the jurors didn’t take you seriously?
RJ: They judged how they talk how they look, how they dress.
CNN: And they were judging you?
RJ: Yes.

In the year since the trial, Rachel has worked hard to turn her life around and to keep a promise she made to her friend Trayvon — which was that she’d graduate high school. She told CNN that she was able to use the stress of the trial to motivate her to complete her goal of graduating high school, saying
 “I kept my word to Trayvon that I would do this.”

Congratulations, Rachel! You are not responsible for the ignorant racism/classism of those not-guilty-voting jurors. Stay strong. <3

Rachel was so freaking brave. I hope great things happen for her.
