Today, the 70th day of this nightmare, some may wonder why we have yet to stop – to stop chanting, stop marching, stop occupying .
But we have not yet found peace because we do not yet know justice. Therefore we, together with our allies, will continue to occupy the streets and the American consciousness until the book is closed.

Let’s just appreciate that I’m reblogging this from a funny text posts themed blog. Neil has made it that far. He’s Tumblr famous now.

White women have the privilege of being able to ignore, mock or deride women of color and still be taken seriously as feminists.

Women of color have no choice but to treat white women with nothing but deference and respect if they want to be taken seriously as feminists.

Do you see the double standard?

white feminists needa learn that wearing wtvr u want just doesnt stop at crop tops and shorts. let desi women out in salwar kameez. let muslim women out in hijabs.let african women wear caftans. let women of color out in public without getting harassed.

takingbackourculture:

white feminists out here think freedom is showing your skin in western clothes and then turn around and insult/harass WOC when they wear their cultural/religious clothing because they want to “save” us from “oppression”

Ferguson protesters take their message to the Rams game!

Monday, October 13th

This is SO amazing and important! Critiquing the capitalistic exploitation and dehumanization of Black athletes in order to entertain and deepen the pockets of white people is such a great way of discussing why Black people only matter when they benefit white people/ the white gaze but are so easily disposable off the field/court/arena. And even then, to what extent are Black athletes appreciated when sports leagues will still use Black people to be the face of violence when it’s convenient to deter criticism of rape culture & misogyny in sports, white athletes, and the white men in power.

in which The Incredibles is a perfect example of a thing that drives me crazy

rubyvroom:

The icky subtext in The Incredibles is actually really valuable in how it sheds light on that particular kind of story. The velocity with which the story goes from “hey, you people with a whole lot of extra power over everyone need to wield it more responsibly and stop hurting…

YES. THIS. I have been saying this for years!!!
