Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.
people are fucking disgusting, I hope the original artist is doing okay now because they are an amazing person to draw this.
DO YOU GUYS HAVE THAT ONE FRIEND THAT DOESN’T THINK SHE’S ANYTHING SPECIAL BUT SHE’S BEAUTIFUL AND FUNNY AND WITTY AND EVERYTHING AMAZING THAT YOU COULD EVER WANT IN A PERSON BUT SHE DOESN’T SEE IT AND YOU JUST WANNA TAKE HER AND SHAKE HER AND SCREAM IN HER FACE ALL OF THE AMAZING THINGS ABOUT HER JUST SO SHE WILL APPRECIATE HOW ABSOLUTELY LOVELY SHE IS
someone could be thinking this about you right now you never know
|Me:||Talks about thing I like|
|RL friends:||I don't really care. Let's talk about things I like. They're a lot better. I mean, the things you like suck.|
|Family:||God, you're a geek. Why can't you like normal things? Now shoo, I have more important things to listen to.|
|Internet friends:||I know, right? I love that thing too! I'm so excited!|
|Me:||Talks about feelings and personal problems|
|RL friends:||Oh, okay, but that's not /that/ bad did I ever tell you about the time that this one thing happened to me and it was 3290259059059x worse?? Why don't we talk about my feelings? They're more important.|
|Family:||Oh god here you go again with your teenage angst! Please shut up already.|
|Internet friends:||Oh my god. I am so, so sorry. Are you alright? Do you want to talk about it? I sort of understand in a way, but this isn't about me, it's about you. Just remember that it gets better. Don't give up, please. I believe in you.|
|Me:||Talks to internet friends|
|Family and RL friends:||Why do you go online and on your phone so much? God, what are you, antisocial? What's your issue?|
|Internet friends:||Don't worry, I'm here for you. I wish I could hug you right now.|
australia’s got a lot of fucked up shit going on but at least we can say our last mass shooting was 18 years ago
because after it happened we placed higher restrictions on gun ownership
because that’s the logical fucking thing to do
the worst thing is when you have crumbs in your bra
also when there are crumbs in your keyboard and the keys wont work right
the two most important things in every girl’s life
the boobs and the laptop
