im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
It’s this lack of positive representation for latinos that photographer Eunique Jones Gibson is seeking to address with her project, "Por Ellos, Sí Podemos." Gibson photographed 31 Latino kids ages 2 to 14 for an empowering series that pays tribute both to the trailblazers who broke ground for the community and to the kids who will one day pick up the reins.

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make the least, they pay the most.
Probably the worst types of people are the ones that shut you down to make themselves look cooler than you, for example if you get excited and squeal and they’re like “woah what was that..” or if you talk loudly because you’re passionate about something and they say “relax dude wow” and then give a look… Like fuck off stop trying to act so cool and collected. You don’t seem more mature you just seem fucking boring and monotonously placid.

As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT.
And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it.
I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well.
The girl in the hands dress just completely fucked me up..
If these pictures disturbed you imagine the effect on the children actually going through these situations.
don’t criticize what anyone is eating.
don’t criticize what anyone is wearing.
don’t criticize anyone’s body.
there are so many problematic things about that.
just because someone is or appears to be a cishet white male doesn’t mean that they can’t be insecure about their body.
just because someone looks like part of a privileged group doesn’t mean they are, because they could be a closeted member of an oppressed group.
just because a problem like body image issues mostly affects an oppressed group doesn’t mean you should treat privileged groups as if it’s impossible for them to have that problem.
this is NOT one of those “don’t fight hate with hate” posts, i don’t believe in that at all, but it’s really important not to use someone’s privilege, actual or apparent, as an excuse to violate basic human decency; there are plenty of ways to fight oppression without resorting to low blows like attacking someone’s body image.
This is what a lot of people, black and white, believe and think
OPRAH AND BARACK OBAMA EXPERIENCE RACISM ALL THE TIME!!!!!!
Those were the worst two examples you could choose.
Slavery was never completely abolished and people are being enslaved “as punishment for crimes”.. and cities and schools are as segregated as ever.
lmao the most powerful man in the world regularly gets death threats and can’t seem to get secret service worth a damn.
the most powerful woman in the world can’t even go in a store to buy a damn handbag.
holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
