My first experience with racism that I can explicitly remember is when I was in the third grade, 8 years old. Isaac was a white boy in my class and I remember we were partners, identifying specific parts of the globe. He stares at me and then looks down at the desk, turns the globe around so that Africa is face up. He points to the country of Niger and looks at me. "That's what you are," he says. I reply, "Yes, African-American," but he shakes his head and says, "No, a nigger. You're a nigger."

I really like this picture.  Whenever we see pics of people doing black girls hair, there is always frowning and angry faces like its such a struggle.

Here the little girl is smiling and content while her mother(??) is gently and patiently tending to her hair.

It’s nice.

What is Supernatural even about?

White people fucking up the world.

supernatural what an original concept

saintgee:

whites refusing to identify police brutality as a race issue &let us grieve as a people because they want us to continue to view some white kid shooting up a white school in a white district as a national tragedy…as if kids dont get shot by the dozen in Chicago every weekend

when it’s time to own blame they don’t want to make it about race…oh but if it’s black on black…

"Anglo-American justice"

He just put his foot in his mouth, big time.

llmaooo I just……

the thing to understand with this — and im talking from the position of a white person who has lived among & even been a part of republican groups in the past — is that this is not a slip of the tongue. this is not a slip of the tongue.

He’s going to backpedal here (IF he gets called out on it), but he didn’t misspeak, don’t let him say he did.

He didn’t accidentally reveal anything. Lt. gov Peter Kinder absolutely believes and is willing to publicly state that its ~~anglo american civilization~~~~~~ that is responsible for Justice and Laws and Democracy. This might not even seem like a Controversial Statement to him, and is the natural extension of the (equally fucked up and fucking Wrong) “we should preserve what our Founding Fathers wanted and the systems They Set Up founding fathers founding fathers founding fathers” argument/train of thought.  

Reblogging for commentary. Thanks.

Yep. He’s a Republican, and he knows that code word is going to energize his voter base. 100% on purpose.

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!

the joker

I’m in an editing lab where I’m trying to do an assignment due next week and there are these two loud assholes talking, watching YouTube vids at full volume and squealing in a way that I’m guessing is laughter and they keep staring at me

I’m pretty sure that’s not what this area is for??? But what do I know? It’s not like I’m a senior or anything.

And I don’t need pure silence or anything, but a little bit of respect for others would be nice.

I'm going to talk to the head of the department about this bc I will be starting my senior project next semester and I refuse to tolerate this fuckery you should only be in here if you're doing work we have plenty of common areas on campus for you to fuck around in like. why pick the quietest place on campus to be an asshole??? school i cannot wait for this week to be over

My state is enforcing that anti-black law where you have to your ID to vote and can’t register at the polls

There’s been these people on campus offering voting registry and they hold up signs telling you so as you walk past. When I walked past, the white woman put down her sign and avoided eye contact.

but you know. light skinned niggas don't experience racism unless they are with darker niggas or at least that's what a non black person told me once school racism
