"A white student may feel discomfort when it’s pointed out to him how he has benefited from structural racism, but to compare that discomfort to discrimination is a false equivalency. Hurt feelings hurt, but it is not oppression. But hurt feelings can be bad for business. And a lot of powerful people think colleges should act more like businesses. When they do, students act more like customers. And our likely customers might not be amicable to discussions about structural racism. If the customer is always right, then the majority share of customers is more right than the minority."

Minneapolis professor Shannon Gibney: Reprimanded for talking about racism. (via sociolab)

Capitalism, as a system of oppression, is dependent and interlinked with White Supremacy. We have to overthrow both systems if we want liberation.

Janelle Monae “Electric Lady”

I’m pretty sure this song is already up on this blog, but I just saw the official video and HAD to upload. The video is filled with Black and women of color, natural hair, and Black culture. I <3 Janelle Monae so much I officially stan for her.

Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.

so now wanting a female superhero who has always been big, tall and muscular to *not* be forced into the Hollywood beauty ideal is “closed-minded” and “ignorant”

because there obviously aren’t enough rail-thin women being forced down our throats on a daily basis, we have to do the same to a freaking Amazon

well done bro please don’t ever speak to or about women ever again

so i had this east asian lady come through my line with a bunch of WIC checks and i was working the 15 items or less lane but whatever. in total, she only had about 30-something items which normally would take me about 2 minutes to ring up (i’m one of the faster cashiers), but it takes a long time…

You are fucking awesome tbh
