Things that I like or just things I believe are worth mentioning... Enjoy? ♥
Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.
I will always re-blog this
Hence why they’re called cowBOY. “Boy” was a common title/nickname for men of color (usually black men) used as a way to demean and infantilize them.
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.
It angers me, breaks my heart, pisses me off, makes me see red and scream at the top of my lungs while crying …… If you search Latina on tumblr almost every fucking post is Porn ad or a ass shot. Is this representative of what Latin is and means to the masses? We are not objects. STOP OBJECTIFYING US ! We are Mothers, sisters, lovers, friends. We are creators, entrepreneurs, activists, and people of faith. Latinas stand up be seen!
People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers” your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.
You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.
if your “pro-black woman” movement does not include hoodrats & ratchet black women, because “theyre not queens/theyre setting black women back”, your movement is bullshit and I want no part of it
any movement that segregates my sisters into “good and respectable” and “bad and deserves disrespect” categories is harmful and bullshiterious
