northerners who act like racism is only prevalent in the south are just as delusional as canadians and brits who think racism only exists in the u.s.

i saw these while i was out shopping today.

do not buy or wear racist, ignorant, and oppressive “costumes” for halloween.

wear literally anything else or don’t dress up at all

Strolling" is a series created by cecileemeke where she literally strolls around with people as they talk about the various issues affecting them. It’s brilliant. 

Several videos have been released, featuring Black women just doing their thing, being effortlessly fly as we’re wont to do, but this one stood out for me because Vanessa is totally someone I would drink bottomless mimosas with and not give a damn about people giving us rude looks because we’re passionately discussing free tampons. I’m so with her on this - TAMPONS SHOULD BE FREE Y’ALL.

This episode also goes a bit deeper as Vanessa discusses rape culture and her life as an actress struggling with typecasting, stereotypes, and colorism. Sort of refreshing (but still very depressing) to hear Black folks from different parts of the world noting how important representation is. Validating, even. We’re all connected.

Sometimes I wonder whether I have any real intelligence or if I just have enough random bits of surface knowledge to bullshit my way through most things.

This makes me furious.

If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.

Healthy eating has definitely become a privilege to those who, one can afford to buy that food and number two, people who have the ability to research and look into all these things. I think it’s done on purpose. It’s made hard to educate yourself on being healthy in order to keep the gaps in society the way they are. It’s like they don’t want people to be healthy and be happy. Maybe they look at it from the point of view that it would be harder to control healthy, happy people; they’d question things more. If people were more educated, people would be questioning everything in this country.
