I re-blogged a picture of a little girl, dressed as Tiana, hugging the face actress who plays Tiana at one of the Disney Parks, and noted that everyone should have their princess. And a few people have now contacted me basically going “no, only straight white people can have princesses if you…

After this dialogue exchange, I turned to my husband and said “Did Community just sum up all the problems with [non-intersectional/white] feminism in less than a minute [without using Britta as the Straw Feminist]? Holy crap.”

A Texas prep school teacher who stands accused of molesting a black first grade student claims she’s completely innocent. Her proof? She’s a racist.
Well… that’s one way to protect yourself. I guess…
As if sexual abuse has nothing to do with hatred, violence, and domination.
He was injured in the blast and was running away like everyone else. But a bystander thought that was suspicious and tackled him. Police grilled him and ransacked his apartment. The new York post calls him a suspect immediately. Drudgereport links it under a screaming headline. World media pick it up. Everyone thinks he’s behind it. But. It’s. Just. Not. True.
I like how an innocent, injured, and scared man was tackled by bystanders, taken into custody, and defamed in the international media just for his skin color and his audacity to run from a fucking bombing and this warrants one tiny paragraph in an article about how “vigilant” they’re being in their investigation.
all of the ignorant, racist fucks on tumblr need to read this
Hitler as you’ve never seen!
German girl giving flowers to Hitler, year 1942.
Hitler … feared, hated, utopian, killer, appointed by history as the greatest cause of armed conflict the world has ever seen.
Jesus fuck, it REALLY shouldn’t really come as a revelation to anyone that Hitler was polite to a little blonde girl on at least one occasion. Liking one group of people okay does not mean you are incapable of dehumanizing, torturing, and murdering millions of other people who belong to other groups.
Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety in the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centres, women’s refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says, ‘Oh, I’m not a feminist’, I ask, ‘Why? What’s your problem?’

the feminist movement has supported wars (afghanistan to liberate the poor brown women, anyone?) and the cruel medical use of the bodies of women of color (history of how the pill was developed, anyone?) and the murder of trans women (the transsexual empire, anyone?) among other… failings, shall we say, to put it lightly
feminism as an institution has colluded with white supremacy, with heterosexism and cissexism, with ableist power structures, with imperialism to bring “liberation” to white, western, christian, cishet, abled, thin women at the expense of women who can’t climb that ladder and cling to any part of that power structure as easily as they can
anyone who feels that feminist is a dirty word because ~ew won’t the women just shut up~ is a misogynist, plain and simple. but to pretend that there is no reason to eschew the label of feminist erases the violence done to many women in the name of feminism.

i hope beyonce buys the production company that shows girls and shuts it down bc of this tweet
To ask this on Twitter too? I mean. This is the sort of thing you talk about… not on social media first. /o\
Guys, I’m not one to rush to defend Lena Dunham, but you get that fake tweets are a thing, right?
I thought the same thing but its actually true—she deleted it and tweeted that she wasn’t making fun of beyonce
so yes. lena dunham is fucking scum
Take this piece of trash out.
I just…what the fuck?
Every time I settle back into my warm, cozy bubble of ignoring Lena Dunham’s racist ass, she pops up on my dash being even more ridiculous.
WTF is wrong with this woman?
April 4, 1968
The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on this day in 1968 remains unsolved and that’s how the US government wants to keep it. The murder was investigated by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI (who in all likelihood had something to do with it in the first place) and most of the documentation from that investigation will remain classified until 2027. A subsequent Congressional report conducted by the House Select Committee on Assassinations is similarly sealed until 2029.
James Earl Ray was pressed into a guilty plea during a three-hour hearing in order to avoid the death penalty. Three years later, Ray claimed that the assassination was a conspiracy orchestrated by somebody known only as “Raoul” whom he met in Montreal. Two separate ballistics tests failed to match the lethal bullet to the alleged murder weapon. The King family supported Ray’s call for a retrial, but he was never granted one.
When Ray died in 1998, Coretta Scott King said: “America will never have the benefit of Mr. Ray’s trial, which would have produced new revelations about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., as well as establish the facts concerning Mr Ray’s innocence.”
The King family filed a lawsuit in Dr. King’s wrongful death which went before a Memphis jury in 1999. The historic three-week trial concerning the murder of one of the most important figures of the 20th century was not covered by US mainstream media which thrives on covering celebrity courtroom dramas in lurid detail. The jury confirmed the existence of “Raoul” and concluded that Martin Luther King was assassinated by a broad conspiracy which included agents of his own government. And that’s all we know for now.

Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest person to ever receive a nomination for an academy award, and y’all over here talking about how she shouldn’t have puppy purses.
can y’all just let this child wear what she wants to? seriously, she’s fucking 9, let her wear what she fucking wants without critiquing her like she’s a fucking adult
she did not get dressed for you, she got dressed for her. she likes puppy purses? let her fucking have them, jesus fuck
Attention fellow white people: This child could walk around everywhere dressed up in a Darth Vader costume and she would still be an adorable, beautiful, incredibly talented little girl who deserves every bit of the acclaim she’s getting, as well as the right to dress like a child in public. No one should have a goddamn word to say about her accessorizing choices except “Aww.”

yep another reason why white feminists really need to shut the fuck up and GTFO with their white-savior mentality bullshit.

-@girljanitor writes post on quinoa, the guardian steals it, and soon after, girljanitors post is brushed off and the guardian article taken from her is linked, to demonstrate the “importance” of the cause
-i make a post on dra. Evangelina rodriguez, anthony otero lifts it for his huffington post article and proceeds to link me as “unsubstantial” though I said more than him.
Observe the erasure and devaluing of more marginalized voices, and elitist overvaluing of plagiarist fuckers with socalled cred.
Honestly, this shit is ridiculous. Apparently mining our blogs for ideas and then selling them off is good fucking business.
The fact that someone actually linked to you saying “i got the idea from this person but they didn’t write ‘anything substantial’” still has me fucking fuming.
Intellectual property theft like WHOA normalized and fucking congratulated and CELEBRATED if you’ve got “legitimate” “credentials.”
Shame these mofos publicly. Shee how well-backed they are then. Attack the income and see what happens, that’s my recc.
Boosting the fuck out of this and I recommend everyone who sees this to do the same.
What does this infographic tell us?
Racism is institutional.

They’re now saying that if you’re not an important cog in the global financial system, you can’t get away with anything, not even simple possession. You will be jailed and whatever cash they find on you they’ll seize on the spot, and convert into new cruisers or toys for your local SWAT team, which will be deployed to kick in the doors of houses where more such inessential economic cogs as you live. If you don’t have a systemically important job, in other words, the government’s position is that your assets may be used to finance your own political disenfranchisement.
Also note that charities have had their assets seized for more tenuous alleged associations to terrorist organizations than was proven/admitted to in this case.
After seeing yet another person on this site talk about how easy Black people have it and having someone invite themselves into the Racism School Facebook inbox to tell me how horrible Black people are and that I was lying about everything I wrote here, I decided to take a closer look at what it…
