Be wary of those who apologize for how you feel instead of apologizing for what they did to you

Just a  reminder: You don’t owe it to anyone to prove that your experiences are real.

Having to stand up under constant interrogation and “debate” about your own existence is not a fair tax for being able to exist in a public space.

It’s okay to talk to people you relate to, and share experiences, and not give “skeptics” who are miles away from knowing what you’ve lived through the time of day.

These people want you to think that you owe them, that there’s a price for saying that abuse is real, that oppression is real, that your brain is real, that your identity is real, and that price is allowing them to aggressively and continually try to convince you those things are NOT real.

They’re wrong, and you don’t have to.

My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.

Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!

"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.

precious angels!

Every Main Character Magical Girl

Dec. 1966- Aug. 2014

THIS IS MY POST, IT WAS MADE FOR ME

 I know it would be tedious as fuck, but I’d love to know allllll of these

this was exhausting to watch

^^^ Seriously. Goddamn.

But I want a list of all of these. I know some (Sailor Moon, Pretty Sammy, Carcaptor Sakura, PMMM) but it’d be nice to have a name. Maybe there’s a Wikipedia article dedicated to that.

It’s not fair for him to even be on the show. Who’s gonna beat him? Seriously?

Yeah he’s gonna win.

I can’t get enough of this.

I’m sure he gets tired of it but I pray he does The Carlton at least once though. This shit was week one though? Everyone else needs to just quit haha.

This is the first week? I’d just quit if I were in this season. LOL

Everyone should just give up tbh

black excellence.

The only reason why I’m watching this show this season.

1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

Hi! I’m Rabbie, I look like above ^. I’m 21, I go to college, and I’m in a tight situation.

The amount of money I get per week is 0 dollars, because my parents have disowned my financially. I am actively looking for work, and I have several mental disabilities. I really love to draw so I’d like commissions more than donations but like, I’m not in a situation where I can afford to be picky.

There is a donate button on my tumblr page HERE and I’ve also got commission info HERE.

Please signal boost this if you can!

FCKH8 posted a statement on their blog yesterday in response to the Colorlines article that questioned the motives of their “I’m over racism” t-shirt and viral video. If you’re not caught up, here’s a rundown of how this whole thing started.

The post is of course, predictably defensive,…

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
