I have a few issues with this fake FB page, and this is one of them. While this is a super adorable picture, I’m not sure why it was captioned like he was helping some less fortunate soul, when he’s actually holding his girlfriend’s nephew, and he’s on vacation with their family. 

#it’s probably because he’s surrounded by people of color?#fail

I’m into native american men because they’re tall, dark, and an endangered species.

Umm.  I think the OP is a little confused about a few aspects of basic biology.  We’re modern humans, aka - Homo Sapiens.  Actually, if the OP is of European descent, chances are that they have up to 4% Neanderthal DNA.  That actually is a different, albeit extinct species.
This being said, I find it very troubling to see this sort of language.  From the moment of first contact with Europeans, they have claimed that the indigenous peoples are not human.  This claim was the foundation of so much fuckery that I don’t think I need to spell it out here.

also hey what’s up “ethnic fetishist”? that’s just a fancy word for a specific kind of racism which is, y’know, not the least bit sexy and, sadly, not remotely endangered.

I actually love Tara :)However, I do dislike Bonnie. Yes, she has a interesting story and CAN be a great friend to Elena but at the same time she happens to be so annoying and I find her selfish. :) 

Selfish? How the hell is she selfish? Please tell me more on that.

That’s just how I feel about her. I’m not trying to actually offend anyone. I just feel that she is hard on Elena for things sometimes, things Elena can’t control. Like when Damon turned her mother, yes she had the right to be upset but at the same time she could have been thankful her mother wasn’t killed (and she shut Elena out for that, but yes she did come and help Rick when he needed but she wouldn’t talk to Elena which wasn’t fair) It’s just how I feel. Other than things like that I actually enjoy her character. In fact I loved her with Jeremy and thought that he was the best match for her but I think it’s unfair that she doesn’t give him another chance. Just little things like that annoy me about her. Like I said, other than the little things like that, I actually do kinda like her. The first season I absolutely adored her. But to each his own. :)

You think it’s unfair how she doesn’t give a second chance to someone who cheated on her with a GHOST? Jeremy is lucky that Bonnie still cares about him. Elena is an idiot who lets Stefan and Damon do shit and hurt people. Did she call out Damon for killing Abby? No, she made out with him a few episodes later. Did she ask Bonnie if she was okay? No. She called her to do some spell. In 3x21, when Bonnie came with Damon to the Gilbert house after almost dying, Elena stayed uptairs paiting. Bonnie is the only one in TVD who has a normal reaction towards things. Everyone else is idiotic. Elena is still friends with benefits with the guy who fucked her mom and killed her brother. Caroline keeps drawings from the guy who ruined her boyfriend’s life and hurts all her friends. Matt stills hangs out with the people who killed and covered his sister’s death. Jeremy doesn’t say shit that Elena is still around the guy who killed him. And Bonnie should be thankful for what? Her mother left her again. Her Grams is dead. And all because of what? The vampires Elena let into their lives. Bonnie has no one. Elena has the Salvatores and the whole town willing to do anything for her.

    THIS /\ YOU A GENIUS!!!!!
And rinoaacat Bonnie Had All The Right The Be Mad At Elena After Damon Turn His Mom Did You Even See The Episode, Well Bonnie Ask Elena The Say Nothing To Elijah And She Run Tell It To Him For What Cause THAT BITCH WANTED AN OTHER VAMPIRE DICK TO RUN AFTER HER PETROVA GOLDEN VAGINA!!!! BONNIE HAD EVERY RIGHT THE BE MAD AT HER AND IF I HAD RUN THE SHOW I WILL HAVE MAKE BONNIE KILL EVERY FUCKING ONE WHO HAD A THING THE DO WITH HER MOM BEEN TURN!!!! AND BEGINNING WITH YOU LITTLE FAVORITE CHARACTER!!!!



I’m still stuck on the fact that both shows went out of their way to make the vamps former slave owners (in Bonnie’s case the Salvatores owned her ancestors!) and then tried to act like the women were wrong to be upset about it. This is why I can’t fuck with either fandom.

Tara mentions it Bonnie doesn’t even twitch.

Yeah, that just adds to my reasons to loathe TVD.

If a black person killed in a racially motivated murder and the first thing out your mouth is “what about the white people” I probably hate you.

Child, did you seriously say ‘red indian’ and ‘wooowoowoooo’ and think that this was not going to get a response?
Depictions like this are hurtful. 
Dressing up in redface is hurtful. Wearing ‘war paint’ is hurtful. Dressing up as another race by wearing terribly stereotypical caricatures of what you think that race looks like is not appropriate. When you dress up like this and take photos like this it adds one more images to the ponderous pile of this shit that creates the pervasive cultural notion that this is what people should think of when they hear ‘Native American’ , and IT HURTS REAL NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE. It creates, in the minds of the people that see you dressed like this, a stereotype - a caricature of what Native people do/should look like that erases us in reality and removes us from their perception of the modern world. It turns ‘Native American’ into someone wearing beads and headbands and feathers and face paint. It turns an ethnic, racial identity into a costume.
This is racism.
When you only speak about Native American people in the past tense, in certain contexts. When you only mention them as pertains to White history. When you depict them in stereotypical ways. This is how racist thought is cemented in your mind and the minds of others.
I am tired of cultural appropriation.
I am tired of having to constantly be an educator of people who largely don’t want to be educated. I am tired of being -hurt- by racism. I am tired of people who claim that they love and admire ‘Native American Culture’ but in fact know fuck all about Pan-Indian culture or the fact that ‘Native American’ is a blanket term for hundreds of hugely disparate indigenous nations across two continents and that we do NOT have just one culture.
And before you argue that you didn’t MEAN to be racist or that you were just having fun, before your many white allies rally around you to tell me how wrong I am and what a good person you are and how you are not a racist…know this:
Racism is not in your intent.
Your intent is immaterial in how racist your actions are.
This isn’t about you BEING a racist. It’s about you DOING A THING that is racist.
Your intent doesn’t change it. Your ignorance of its meaning doesn’t change it. It’s got nothing to do with you as a person and everything to do with the meaning of your action in the context of sociocultural history.
Please watch this video.
If you think that dressing up as a stereotype is somehow ‘celebrating’ anyone’s culture, that speaks to some really problematic shit in how you’ve been educated, what you’ve been exposed to, what you think you know about what Native Americans are and what we look like. And while it’s not your fault that the culture of your upbringing has handed you that shit on a silver platter and said ‘eat it’, and not your fault that you did eat it without knowing better, it’s still bullshit and it’s still hurtful. You have the Internet at your disposal. You can become educated as to what Native Americans really are like and what we really are about and why not only is that outfit that you put on not remotely like anything legitimately Native American - but that you CAN’T make a costume that’s legitimately Native American. Because we don’t all look alike. Because we’re people.
Here’s a quick checklist of when it’s ok to wear eyeliner warpaint and a shitty headband made from the feathers of Weeping Rainbow Chicken while calling yourself ‘red indian’ and doing that ‘woo woo’ shit:

Just a quick question…

deluxvivens:

moniquill:

For all the people crying that no one takes the tumblr social justice community seriously…

Where do you live that anyone takes any social justice community seriously other than the social justice community itself?

Because last time I checked any resource ever, the only people who gave a flying fuck about social justice…are the social justice community there. On tumblr. On facebook. In public forums. In media. ANYWHERE. Social justice concerns are forwarded and discussed within and defended by the social justice community. Who are taken seriously only by themselves. Because the people outside of the social justice community tend to be the people who are actively or passively perpetuating the shit that we are speaking out and acting out against.

How does the statement ‘No one takes the tumblr social justice community seriously!’ mean a single fucking thing, even if true?

this right here.

to be honest I dont like the term “social justice” b/c i think it implies some sort of movement i had to get involved in, when i learned how to think critically about race and racism issues from my parents and the community i grew up in.

for some people this is clearly theory they encounter in school. or on the internet.

for some of us it is our daily lives.

Bolding mine. This is what a lot of people need to understand. We write about our lives. That’s it. We’re not here to be studied or to give a distant academic read on oppression.

She had her fucking witch claw pointed at him but SHE felt  ”a little bit threatened” but HIS attitude.

Fuck outta here. 

this shit just keeps getting wilder. i’m just waiting for the secret service to start hurting more than these people’s feelings.

The fact that she fixed her mouth to claim that he disrespected her by walking away is just…man look, white people come get your cousins. Quick.
