Cleaning out my photo booth. I’ve had this macbook all 3 years of law school and it’s so FUNNY (and embarrassing) to see how I used to look. From blunt cut bangs to colored contacts and faux nose rings and natural hair and twists and glasses….I changed a lot.

Yh I’m creeped out by how Ariana Grande is sexualised and also made to look like a child simultaneously. Whoever is marketing her needs to stop it.

Like I agree that I’m creeped out by the way people sexualize her but we shouldn’t shame her for the way she looks. If I’m being real I haven’t seen her being marketed as some creepy sexy baby, people just perceive her that way. She has a baby face and dresses the way she likes which is age appropriate because she’s 21. In regards to her hairstyle, whatever. She said once that her hair was damaged so she wears it up but either way thats her business. Instead we should focus on how grown men (far too old for her) talk about her sexually and how people make jokes about her being a child (especially pertaining to her relationship with Big Sean.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive.

Scan, share, give away your old text books. Do whatever you can to keep these greedy jerks from making their obscene profits at the expense of our ever-deepening debt.

The desperate white girl who results to racism to fit in with the Black people

- Jess

UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh

She is the type of white girl that says things like

" I went to afropunk and everyone there was so nice."

" They liked what i wore."

" What do you mean cultural appropriation? I  come every year and no one bothers me."

backwashed-barrel and I saw her getting her photograph taken and could not believe it. The photographer was white, too. A white photographer at a Black music festival photographing a white woman appropriating other cultures. Yes.

Exploiting black culture and appropriating it at the same damn time.

why does she look like Riff Raff

cause all white people look the same

is that unclefather

she is managing to appropriate at least three cultures at once i am truly amazed

I saw her!! this drove me nuts.

like we made it very clear you and your white dreads are not welcome here afro punk. not “greasy matted limp nasty ass white fake ‘dreadlocked’ hair punk” y’all have enough places for you!!!! give us this!!! keep your cultural appropriating asses away from our places!!

Somebody said they thought this was Kimmy Gibbler😭

The whites must be stopped!

The worst thing about this is, Afropunk was created bc white punk kids are racist and exclude Black people from their shit…now they infiltrating.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

used to intern for afro punk. we were told to make our graphic design campaign “less afrocentric” and more inclusive to white people….

The graphic design work was then outsourced to white latinas.

The organization makes me sick. They routinely push eurocentric beauty standards, and the founder knows jack shit about the African American Experience because *gasp* he is not african american. He is guyanese and british (and rich) (and being sued for not paying employees).

Go to a show during the year, and it is a sea of white faces. Go to battle of the bands, and watch a 10 piece band with one black member (who isnt even the lead) win.

Do not support uncle toms. If afro punk can’t be for those of the diaspora, then I fail to see what the point of the organization is.

Stop supporting corporate funded appropriation just because a few pretty black people are involved.

well now I’m not sure if I’ll bother going next year…

panic/anxiety attack

pushed-too-far:

chris-sid:

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

thuggamane:

Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard! These racist authorities need to be exposed!

7 lies we have to stop telling about African-American female students

There is a myth that African-American girls generally fare better than African-American boys — that they somehow have it easier. This creates a potentially damaging narrative that may ultimately prevent society from truly empowering these young women.

Here are seven myths that we need to stop repeating when it comes to African-American women and the achievement gap.

BLACK IN ASIA

Thailand

The Mani people are the original homo sapiens that travelled from Africa and settled in Thailand. They are the original negaritos who moved with other Africans like Andamanese of India, Aetas of Philippines,Semangs of Malaysia  to their present  residence in Thailand. They were there before the other ethnic groups came to form the Thai kingdom. Anthropological studies has revealed that the Thai Mani and Malaysian Semang were the first modern humans to enter the Malay peninsula. They remarked that "the original people of the Malay Peninsular that about 4,500 years ago the Proto-Malays moved south from the Yunnan province area of China into Southeast Asia where they met the Negritos who, for a long time, may have been the only modern humans to live in this area" 

The name Mani is of Mon-Khmer origin and means “human being,” and they speak Tonga language. The Mani or “forest people” as other Thai people call them lives in  the jungles of southern Thailand, in the Banthad Mountain Chain and around the Malaysian border in the provinces of Trang, Phatthalung and Satun.  They are facing extinction and currently their total population is about 300. The Banthad Mountain chain became a base area for communist insurgents during the 1970s and thus a battle ground between communist guerillas and Thai government forces. Especially during the years of 1975-1977, the insurgents were battered in ground and air attacks. The Mani suffered terribly during this war with government forces frequently mistaking the smoke of Mani camp fires for insurgent activity. Those living in Trang and Phatthalung provinces had to move to the sanctuary of Thoungwan district in Satun province.

The Philippines

 The Aetas  are the aborigines of the Philippines who were called negritos by the Spaniards at the time of their reign in the Philippines because of their darker skin color. It is the tribe inhabiting the eastern parts of Luzon and called in different names: Agta, Ita, Ati, or Aeta. About 20,000 of them are spread throughout the country. Their majority can be seen in Pampanga and Zambales while others inhabit the coastal fringes of Northern Luzon, and the mountains of Negros, Samar, Panay and Leyte. As a result of their nomadic life, they live in houses built out of grass and tree branches to easily vacate upon scarcity of surrounding food.

Aeta according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country

Malaysia

 The Semang are a Negrito ethnic group of the Malay Peninsula. Lowland Semang tribes are also known as Sakai, although this term is considered to be derogatory by the Semang people. They are the indigenous peoples of this area.They have been recorded to have lived in Malaysia since before the 200s Common Era (CE). They are ethnologically described as nomadic hunter-gatherers.

The Semang live in autonomous local bands consisting of an elder male (usually the leader of the group), his wife, their sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Their religious beliefs are complex and include numerous deities. Shaman-priests practice magic, foresee the future, and cure illness.
