i just wanted to clarify some things

artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.

saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t want it bastardized is probably the stupidest stance on this subject you could take. if all artists followed this line of reasoning, there would be no art on the internet. 

when an artist posts their work, they are trusting you to enjoy it respectfully. and when you betray that trust either knowingly or unknowingly, it’s like saying the artist’s time, skills and thoughts aren’t worth anything.

you are NOT entitled to an artists work just because they decided to trust you enough to share it with you.

an artist is within their right to feel upset that someone has used their work in a way they never intended it to be used. they are within their right to ask for it to stop and not happen again.

just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.

This is a great comeback for all of that “I don’t see race.” BS

AND YOU BENEFIT FROM IT EVERY DAY

Tweet by @chefnegro says: “White people wanna talk about ‘I don’t see race.’ YOUR ANCESTORS CREATED THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCT OF RACE SO BITCH YOU BETTER SEE IT.”

“You don’t owe people the person you used to be. You don’t have to talk to people who are speaking to the old you. If they want to drag old you out, and you’ve already left that person behind, they don’t get to talk to you. When you’ve gone from weakness to strength, you don’t owe a show of your former self to someone who just can’t wrap their head around your change.”

Boys will really go out of their way to make a girl seem “crazy” if they feel guilty about something.

I have this theory that resting bitch face is actually just every girl’s face in its natural state, and it only seems rare and mean b/c most women are conditioned to be in constant state of smiling and using facial expressuons to subtly submit to people around them

Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.

“When Gap changed its Twitter background to the picture of Sikh model Waris Ahluwalia, many commentators claimed a victory not only for social media, but for South Asians and Muslims as well. One blogger claimed the change was “to show solidarity and support” with those who were offended by the racist graffiti. But if solidarity simply means changing a Twitter background, then we have not only failed in some fundamental way in understanding the politics of that term, but we have also relegated our identity to merely that of a consumer. Gap has purposefully chosen to demonstrate solidarity with its brown consumers, but not with its brown factory workers. We have compromised our sense of racial solidarity for consumer solidarity, a solidarity between a corporation and its consumers that invites a racialized minority community to become rightful customers. Yet this image of inclusivity means little when the actual practices of the company continue to exclude Bangladeshi workers from having basic human rights. Changing a Twitter background is easy. Seeing through the smoke and mirrors, organizing to put pressure on Gap and policymakers, and demanding better working conditions for sweatshop laborers in Bangladesh–that is hard work.”

I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat  the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.

"I thought that love would conquer all and skin color really didn’t matter. I had to learn the really hard way when they almost killed you."

yo fuck these white moms who be putting their Black kids in danger because they wanna be on some post-hippe everything is love and sunshine bullshit. that’s fucking child endangerment.

I HAVE to say something because don’t blame the mother for teaching their child to be color blind… blame the POLICE. 

White people (especially you allies), please remember that color blindness is YOUR PRIVILEGE & OUR NIGHTMARE. Because of the way YOUR ancestors set up the CURRENT society, visible POC will be treated as LESS THAN HUMAN, EVEN BY YOU. If you don’t believe it just take a look at the responses you give to people of color - you dismiss our facts/proofs/claims/feelings about the racism that exists because YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IT. YOU HAVE INTERNALIZED RACISM SO MUCH THAT YOU CANNOT SEE THE FORESTS FOR THE TREES WHEN YOURE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT. Do NOT tell us who to blame - doing that makes an individual as controlling and violent as the very system itself and spits in the face of all the black people and POC that have experienced brutality and death at the hands of whites SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY EXIST.
