A Little bit of all the things that are treacherously terrestrial to me

 

zelinkfangrrl:

Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?

If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.

Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation] or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.


I am alone. 
The world which shook at my feed, and the trees, and the sky have gone. And I am alone now.
Alone.
The wind bites now, and the world is grey, and I am alone. Can’t see me. Doesn’t see me. 
Can’t. 
See me.

I am alone.

The world which shook at my feed, and the trees, and the sky have gone. And I am alone now.

Alone.

The wind bites now, and the world is grey, and I am alone. Can’t see me. Doesn’t see me.

Can’t.

See me.

Save this one for a night when all you want is for your brain to let you rest. Too often I go to bed, my body exhausted, my mind unable to stop moving. Luckily, there’s this masterful version of “Once Upon a December” from the (highly underrated) animated movie Anastasia. It’s a perfect piece to guide you to a peaceful slumber, because this music? It’s the stuff of dreams.

From the Lab - Another goddamn beauty box, but this one's made of SCIENCE

thepeacockangel:

So you all know how much I love beauty products (more than any sane person should) and so I’m trying out a new one where you get fancy full sized skin and haircare products with super advanced ingredients so that’s pretty cool.  You should try it out too.

This is a resource post for all the Good White Person™s out there. You know, the ones who say things like “It’s not my fault I’m white! Don’t generalize white people!”, or “I’m appreciating your culture! You should be proud!”, or “Why do you hate all white people, look I’m a special snowflake who’s not racist give me an award for meeting the minimum requirements for being a decent human being”.Well, if you are actually interested in understanding racism and how it ties into cultural appropriation, please read instead of endlessly badgering PoCs on tumblr with your cliched, unoriginal arguments and repeating the same questions over and over.

Reporters confirm that police & advisors concealed the identity of Darren Wilson until he could delete all social media & move out of state.

Wow though. Darren Wilson, Ferguson’s PD and the rest of his and their supporters are an extra special breed of scumbag. What incriminating shit did he have online that needed to be swept under the rug so quickly?

I guarantee you there was some racist shit on his facebook

And it’s sitting around somewhere, still, just waiting for a subpoena. It’ll come out, it’d better come out. I’m just livid that murderer is being shielded from public scrutiny while the innocent child whose life he ended for walking outside in broad daylight while Black is being defamed.

i can’t wait until that stuff he tried to delete resurfaces because nothing is ever deleted on the internet. in fact, plenty of ToS for social sites tell you they’re gonna keep your data, not to mention the cached copies the savvy could dig up on their own, i’m sure
[popcorn]

especially on facebook. and even if it’s not subpoenaed, you can bet your bottom dollar that anonymous will be on that shit forthwith

In fact, somebody better tip Anonymous off to dig ALL THAT SHIT UP.

Over the past few days I’ve been thinking about how vile and disturbing the social media of the few cops that have made the news in Ferguson and how their twitter feeds and facebook posts going viral were more damning than their behavior broadcast across the airwaves over the past few weeks. Nobody that noxious can keep it hidden for long…the problem being the social consequences of giving them badges and guns.
