today i accidentally dropped my pencil and when i reached down to get it i had this really awkward hand touch with a guy that was going to pick it up for me and he goes “oh i see how it is” with a flirty face and i panicked so i just blurted “i’m a lesbian” and then he got really quiet
if this gets to five hundred notes i think i’m going to throw myself off a cliff
I really hope she didn’t throw herself off a cliff
i have a special folder for photos of small dogs snoozing on large sleeping places
I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
