Have you ever lost something and thought, “if I could just open a portal to another reality where I haven’t lost it, I could steal it from me and get it back”?
How do you know that’s not the reason you lost it
This is the exact plot of Fringe
Stop with the constant crying over black people. No, it’s not racist for white people to wear dreads or sing rap. Black people aren’t the special snowflakes Tumblr believes us to be.
You’re undoing the civil rights and making MLK roll on his grave. It’s not the job of a teen white liberal who is annoyingly politically correct to say what WE black people think and should or shouldn’t be offended over.
The fact that you completely ignore black-on-black violence and only start crying when a white person kills a black person show how actually racist you are, being only anti-racism when it helps your bullshit agenda. You also wish to segregate whites from black people “to avoid cultural appropriation”? What is this, the motherfucking Apartheid? Screw you. You’re no different from white supremacists. Sometimes I wonder if there’s a game called “Stormfront or SJW”.
Quit the fucking white guilt too. You’re not responsible for the bullshit that happened over two hundred years ago. This is not Communist Russia where you could be arrested for a crime your dad commited. You’re not responsible for the actions of people that died centuries ago. Oh, and that “PoC” label is also pretty fucking racist.
And if you assume this was written by a white person, congratulations, you’re basically calling black people retards that cannot disagree with your shitty and biased opinions. I wonder who’s the real racist. We can’t solve our problems if you keep trying to undo all progress we’ve already done.
Martin Luther King hoped for a world were people were not seen for their differences in skin color but instead for the differences in charactor. Unfortunately we dont live in a post racist society. Minorities are still facing racism, sexism, and classism in all of the major institutions. By not acknowledging why this is or being “blind” to color, we are eliminating a groups of people’s experiences. Doing so is just another form of oppression. The fact that this particular race was inslaved by another particular race (and the residual effects today) are important. It is important for people of color to be able to look at their history and understand where they come from; considering you wont find an accurate depiction in any text book.
I personally believe that people should feel white guilt. Not because your family did or did not own slaves but because of the institutionalized marginalization of groups of people that you benefit from every single day. You should feel bad that you dont have to worry about the same things that others do- like being less likely to be able to wear a hoodie at night without being shot- because you are play in a role to keep those social norms intact.
Yesterday was the 57th anniversary of the arrest of Rosa Parks. 57 years ago Rosa refused to move from her seat to the back of the bus.
It was only 57 years ago that it was legal to tell someone just because of their skin color they had to give up their seat. Discrimination like this was widely accepted, it took one brave person to stand up and fight it.
Yesterday President Obama visited the bus Rosa Parks was arrested in. It’s a powerful photo.
Don’t forget the recent past.
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes…
NOTE: About the front door it is entirely possible that it was simply already opened and it was just slightly offscreen from what part of the room (that is also Gamzee’s sleeping area) we could see. A point about his apparent lack of self preservation within his living space could still be made depending on how long you could imagine he spent futzing around with an open doorway before going out to check up on his lusus.
What we can know from this:
-Gamzee expects to be attacked right outside of his hive
-Gamzee on sopor is a decent enough fighter to be able to defend himself against other trolls
