Tuesday afternoon, Ferguson protesters march in downtown St. Louis, from City Hall to the US Courthouse.
This is super important
"Money won’t make you happy"
Yeah, financial stability is just horrible
After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel
#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice
Y’all make fun of a baby’s natural hair, and then you dog out black women who wear sew ins and weaves.
Because y’all call Blue Ivy’s hair unkept, and then say Beyonce is a fake bitch for wearing sew ins and what not.
It’s not about hair. You hate black women period.
You can’t help loneliness. Because there will be times when know that you have friends and family who care but you just can’t bring yourself to reach out to a single one of them. Because you’re lonely.
And you’ll tell them later about it. And they’ll go,”Why didn’t you call? You could have called.”
But you just don’t know how to explain that sort of loneliness that had you completely convinced that you were utterly alone. -Yagazie
If you’re racist towards people of color and claim to want gender equality you are excluding women of color from your values. Which means you want equality for white women. That’s not feminism. That’s racism. End of story.
We always have to worry about whether or not a guy “likes black girls.” always, With white men, Asian men, Black men, or any other kind of men, that’s always something we’re forced to take into consideration. It’s so disheartening navigating the dating world as a black woman (cis, trans or otherwise) no matter how attractive you are.
and then when you do find the guys who are, you have to worry about fetishization and constantly checking them about their misogyny.
The phrases I always hear from the guys I date, which are mostly black men tbh are: “I’ve never dated a black woman before, but I like you because you’re not like the ghetto/ratchet girls.” ”I love that you don’t wear those gross weaves and stuff” “Yeah you’re black but you don’t really act black” “You’re kind of like a black white girl”
Like these are supposed to be compliments! Like they expect me to gush about this gross ass shit. It’s so exhausting, so damn exhausting and I have given up hope.
Yes!! No matter what race the guy is I always need to confirm. Like just so u know I’m black? That’s cool, right?
