PSA.

I just saw one of my friends on Facebook share the exact image in question with the caption “I’m sure Michael Brown is innocent and just misunderstood. I’m sure he is a pillar of the Ferguson community.”
It is alarming how fast misinformation can spread, this needs to get out as QUICK AS POSSIBLE

Even sadder is that, if it WERE him in the pic, people really think that that justifies him being murdered

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

Just some actual daily reminders:

  • All white people do racist things without being aware they are
  • All straight people do homophobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All Cis people do transphobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All men do sexist things without being aware that they are.
  • Saying things like ‘some men’, ‘some cis people’ absolves the blame of individuals and only seeks to comfort those with privilege and power.
  • When a post says ‘some X’, the X will always assume that they are not because THEY ARE NOT AWARE.

And most importantly,

  • It’s called metonymy, when anyone who is oppressed makes an exasperated statement like ‘i hate straight people’, they are substituting straight people for the concept of a system and a culture that teaches, incentives, and legitimizes homophobic acts and normalizes homophobic acts so that straight people constantly do honophobic things without realizing it and that’s really fucking annoying.

And just as important,

  • The concept of sjws dehumanizes marginalized people and categorizes them as an ‘angry and emotional’ stereotype and only adds to the oppression of marginalized people under the guise of being ‘fair’, while the only thing you are doing is cushioning privileged people from their own ignorance and privilege.

the OP was wrong anyway… 

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people who don’t actively speak out and fight against racism as well as recognize white privilege and take steps to correct it are too.
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people who don’t actively speak out and fight against homophobia as well as recognize hetero privilege and take steps to correct it are too
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people who don’t actively speak out and fight against transphobia as well as recognize cis privilege and take steps to correct it are too
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men who don’t actively speak out and fight against sexism/misogyny as well as recognize male privilege and take steps to correct it are too

The Nat King Cole Trio — Too Marvelous For Words (1946)

You’re much too much
And just too very, very
To ever be in Webster’s dictionary

And so I’m borrowing
A love song from the birds
To tell you that you’re marvelous
Too marvelous for words

Being white means never having to think about it.

these colors look so good on her.

i have to tell you, i’ve never liked her colorful full wigs, but the short pink cut is everything.

Oh shucks! Is it inconvenient to love black culture right now? Where did all y’all go? I swore all of you said you believe we are all equal and gotta stop seeing race cause we all bleed red. Please! Come on and join us! Standing up for justice is way more “hardcore” than listening to Jay Z uncensored if you protest until the sun sets. It will be really “edgy” and “hip” to hit the “ghettoest” parts of Ferguson right now! Who’s down? You should braid your hair up and slick your fully-adult baby hairs for some of the peaceful protests, and rallies.. it’ll be so cool, my “nig”! Come on! Let’s be black now!
