No, this is why women survive longer than men.

this hurt to look at

actually it’s true. in sociology we learn about the fact that men participate in more risky behavior to prove masculinity and this is a way the patriarchy hurts men and pat of the reason the life expectancy is longer for women

Jesus Christ, I wasn’t going to reblog this but then that last one was just so WHY WOULD YOU that I had to

Are they toasting bread?

I showed this to my husband. For just about every picture, his response was “What’s wrong with that?” I’m not sure how to take that.

The last one. What.

okay so uhhhm, i know most of you will think this is just for attention, well it’s really not, i’m honestly so serious about this guys..
The past few months have been very tough for me & my sister, so we’ve decided to get together and do this for my mum, the texts above are my sister & my mum, my dad not long ago passed away due to severe damage to his lungs, mainly caused from smoking, yet my mum still smokes, and it brings me to tears, honest to god..
all I’m asking for is for you guys to get this to 30,000+ notes, whether that’s by reblogging or liking, it wouldn’t only help me out, it would save my mum from a lot of future problems which would mean the world to me, because she’s my world right now, I love my mum.
if you can help, then thank you. You’re basically saving a life, and making another’s happier, which is lovely, I couldn’t ask for more, I’ve always asked her to stop, and she’s always said no, this is my ONLY chance, and you can help out, please.
~also if you have time, can you please check out my blog & maybe follow.~

If this succeeds, I’ll quit too.

More Than the Message: Media, Safety and Attribution in Online Activism

seekingwillow

I think they’re threatened

seekingwillow:

It’s ridiculous. It’s utterly ridiculous.

But I’m beginning to have a thought, everytime I hear something along the lines of; “You don’t need a pride parade, black history month, Asian history/new year’s week, this that and the other - just celebrate being HUMAN.”

I’m beginning to have the thought that the people saying so represent the voices of those who are flat out PISSED that in the face of all the oppression thrown at us, various groups still find something to celebrate, still form community, still remember who came before and honor them. Yes, in some instances some things are forgotten (The First Pride Parade Was Transgender Women Of Colour Rebelling Against White CisHet COPS!). But still…

'Celebrate being human'

Forget your past, your history, your struggle, and every half-inch of triumph. Stop being comfortable being different. Stop finding the good with the bad we dish out. Give it up. Give it ALL up.

I said recently there’s this SHOUT to ‘Assimilate Already!’, among other things.

And I’m seeing it here too. “Stop holding on. Stop remembering.”

They so angry, yo. They so angry that we refuse to cut off parts of ourselves for majority approval. That we believe we can be acknowledged as human, and have our culture, our history, our heroes; our songs, our stories, our communities.

We’re supposed to strip to the bone and come grovelling, and we don’t.

And they’re so angry.

Cause they didn’t fight. They stepped on people. They rushed in for that acceptance, cutting and cutting until there was almost nothing left. And rather than reclaim it, rather than be angry at their own actions (historic or not), they just want to turn around and bully and go ‘We ALL have to lose in order to win and we refuse to let you ‘win’ without (the same kind of ) loss’.

Every; “Why you got to put black in there.”

Every; “Why you picking up for those people there.”

Evey; “What does PoC even mean. Solidarity my ass.”

Every; “Pshh intersectionality.”

Statement of Concern from Arizona Critical Ethnic Studies

The members of Arizona Critical Ethnic Studies are deeply concerned by a recent incident involving an Arizona State University (ASU) police officer and an ASU faculty member. We call for a swift and thorough investigation into this matter.

On the evening of May 21, 2014, Dr. Ersula Ore, a professor in the English department at ASU, was walking home from campus after teaching a summer course. Dr. Ore, who is African American, was stopped and questioned by a male ASU police officer patrolling the area in his vehicle. After a short exchange with the officer, a brief physical altercation ensued in which Dr. Ore, who was wearing a dress, was forced up against the officer’s car and then onto the ground, fully exposing portions of her lower body to the public. Eyewitness accounts of the incident, including video evidence, support Dr. Ore’s assertion that the officer did not clearly inform her regarding why she was being stopped or inform her of her rights, and engaged in excessive force during her detention. Despite these questionable circumstances, however, Dr. Ore has subsequently been charged with felony aggravated assault on the officer, among other charges.

We are troubled by the responses of the media, University, and ASU Police Department about this incident. Media versions have presented a sensationalized, one-sided story that differs substantially from Dr. Ore’s and eyewitness accounts. Officials at ASU, in response to questions about the incident and possible racial profiling, have sought to distance the University, stating that 1) because the incident occurred on a public street between parts of campus, it was technically “off campus,” so Dr. Ore was a private citizen; and 2) although they will comply with any investigation, there is no evidence of racial profiling. We find these responses insufficient. First, the officer involved was an ASU police officer and the University is responsible for the conduct of its employees, including its police force. Second, whether as a private citizen or as a member of the ASU community, Dr. Ore has the right to expect dignified and humane treatment by ASU’s police officers. ASU, as a public institution, has a responsibility to ensure this occurs. Third, ASU has not undertaken a thorough investigation into the matter, so how can officials claim that there is an absence of racial profiling? In a state and metropolitan region in which racial profiling has been proven to be widespread, the ASU administration’s lack of concern for the well-being of an ASU community member of color is unacceptable.

Given that the mission of the ASU Police Department is, “To enhance the quality of life by providing a safe and secure environment through professional and proactive law enforcement services in partnership with the University community,” this incident clearly warrants further inquiry from ASU.  We ask the ASU administration to conduct a comprehensive investigation into this matter as well as an audit on the conduct of its police force vis-à-vis racial profiling.  How can ASU ensure a safe, secure, and just environment for its faculty, students, and staff if it disclaims any responsibility for the actions of ASU police officers? The following questions should be starting points for its audit: In the ASU Police Department, what training is in place to ensure that its police officers are knowledgeable and well-trained to be in compliance with laws prohibiting racial profiling and excessive force? What monitoring systems exist to ensure accountability? How does the department respond to racial profiling complaints?

Dr. Ore, the ASU community, and the broader public deserve a full and just investigation into this incident.

Arizona Critical Ethnic Studies is a network of college and university educators and independent scholars throughout Arizona.

No black person is ever safe.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

THIS is why black people can’t respect cops..they aren’t here to protect us…

Maiherpri, Buried at Thebes, Valley of the Kings, New Kingdom 18th Dynasty, 1427-1392 BC 
Maiherpri was buried in the sacred burial sites, with other Egyptian kings at Thebes in the Valley of the Kings.
Question: How much longer will the Egyptians (the people of Kemet) be portrayed as White? 

Had to reblog to pass on some knowledge

Looks like Barkhad Abdi

LOOK AT ME. I AM DE PHARAOH NOW

The thing though is that this guy was Nubian, not a native Egyptian.

And, what *exactly* is a native Egyptian? 
Apparently being an Egyptian noble and being buried in the Valley of Kings isn’t enough to be considered Egyptian now. Lol. Ok.
I must have stepped out of line. Excuse me. Go ahead… yes native Egyptians were the first whites in Africa. They must have migrated there across the Mediterranean Sea from Whitesenburg, Europe. Race mattered in ancient history… and Maiherpri must have gotten in the Valley of Kings as apart of an affirmative action program. 

I cannot breathe
