“Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be.”

Seriously how I feel around all my skinny inlaws . I love them but they are all very slender and make fat comments constantly. Then the one extremely tiny girl says how rude she finds it when she hears people gasp and comment on how thin she is. Totally understandable feeling….but you’d think it would pave the way to realizing that you guys do much the same thing.
if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people
these anons are like, "can i be racist in the rain? can i be racist on a train? can i be racist in a box? can i be racist with a fox?"
How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?
i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…
The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS.
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored
Everything about Ferguson makes me want to hulk smash things! And you have some white people basically cheerleading the shit, then you got people that “don’t think the kid deserved to get shot” but are literally more worried about minorities treating them the way we treat minorities. Like really? That is your fucking takeaway from this shit? “Glad it isn’t my white ass!”
I know that the vast vast majority of people were not rioting and were not violent - I don’t want to spread that BS…but if they were, could you fucking blame them? How fucking much do you expect people to deal with before losing it? White people might do worse if AppleBee’s discontinues their favorite appetizer but when people are righteously angry over this BULLSHIT you want to start critiquing their response? Jeeeeesus.
“And there it is. A nearly all-white crowd chanting to a nearly all-black crowd, “Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!” Contemporary racism encapsulated by an attempt to package it as support for the police, exposed by calls to shoot black men.
There are no words.”
– Ferguson protesters chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot!” Darren Wilson supporters replied, “Shoot!” (via brutereason)
I can’t believe it is almost September already! I hope it stays nice for as long as possible so I can sit on my porch with my laptop. It is so relaxing and I can smoke and it doesn’t smell like cat pee/rat cages that need cleaning.
Check out this news coverage of a Oklahoma City cop who's been raping people on the job: "Police say the women were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, but it's not clear if race played a role in the alleged crimes." What exactly would make it "clear" that race "played a role"? (P.S. Fuck the police!)
Seriously, what’s it take, Media?
Did they mention Ferguson at all at the VMAS? I only watched a few performances after it ended because I was busy tonight.
I heard MTV sent reporters there to interview people specifically to show on the VMAS but they didn’t…shocking, I know. But did they do anything at all to raise awareness with that huge ass platform that was only worth watching because amazing black women fucking killed it?
