Let me make something very clear, women do not need to look to men for self worth. Please, please, please. Just don’t.
We don’t need to cover up when it’s hot out. We don’t need to dress “sexy” if we don’t want to. We are by no means responsible for a grown man’s behavior. We accept no blame for “distracting” men. Our fashion choices, from short shorts to sweatpants, do not need the approval of men. We are not something for men to look at. We are not bodies for strangers to judge.

We are women, and we don’t owe men a damned thing.

You just want to continue with white supremacy. Not every white person is a supremacist. I know you're not one. After a while it comes off as offensive.

a.) how is showing what white people are doing wrong continuing supremacy?

b.) what you’re saying isn’t even true, here are just a handful of many posts i’ve reblogged with white authors included helping the cause [x] [x] [x] [x]

c.) white people are the problem, there’s no getting around that. and as a white person it’s tempting to shy away from that but i won’t, i acknowledge it.

So I’m reallly happy that I was able to change my work schedule, I’ll be able to attend the We Will Not Go Back March for Eric Garner in Staten Island. The march is this coming Saturday, August 23rd. March line up is at 11AM so we have to plan accordingly.

If any of my followers are in Bergen county and want to get there together please send an ask my way! It’s fine if we haven’t talked much IRL I won’t think you’re weird you guys are my favorite for knowing me in a way you wouldn’t otherwise and I’m trying to take the bus from Elizabeth but I can drive some of you to Elizabeth yeah?

If any of my followers aren’t in my part of NJ but want to attend know that there are buses from Brooklyn and Elizabeth you can try to get on with the link below.

If any of my followers are getting there by themselves but attending come say hi.

And if any of you have strong opinions about what my sign should say this time around, send an ask. 

Let’s MOBILIZE yeah?

If you’re looking to protest tonight under events called ‪#‎NMOS14‬ or‪#‎DayOfRage‬ know that #NMOS14 wasn’t created to protest, it was created to mourn. The hackers anonymous hacked and took over ‪#‎NMOS‬and arranged #DayOfRage protests in the same places. Listen, I have rage. I am angry. But honor the fallen by being peaceful tonight, respect the community organizers that are making these events happen. Peace tonight, rage soon.

i’m oversharing my last post like crazy but those words are worth nothing if they’re not read. i feel like i’m just screaming WHITE PEOPLE READ THIS. they read it. like it. and then don’t share it, and i fear stop talking about it or thinking about it which defeats the entire purpose. 

come on. help me out, read it and share it. we have to be responsible for our own whiteness.

radioactivevikings said: Wow pressed the ask button before I could ask. Okay correct me if I am naive but can Obama do anything about the ferguson issue? Or am I just hopeful.

Let me say first my problems with Obama are far beyond what he can or can’t do as far as Ferguson is concerned. Obama is more hawkish than most liberals or leftists realize and there are a lot of issues I have with him. I’m glad he’s president as opposed to McCain or Romney, OBVIOUSLY, but I am not his defender by any means. 

That said, no. There’s nothing he can do right now. It pisses me off like crazy that he won’t at the very least show some anger, but there’s a federal investigation of Mike Brown’s case right now and if any POTUS says anything about any federal investigations it can be seen as tampering. So I begrudgingly have to admit his hands are tied.

Once he can do something though, I doubt he will. After Zimmerman was acquitted it’s not like he was suddenly open and honest about how much race impacts every aspect of life in America. Obama refuses to use the word “racism” for fear of dividing an already divided country. 

To sum, I recognize he can’t do anything right now but I expect nothing. He’s been a big ass disappointment.

I’m now getting some ugly messages on anon. I’m going to see a movie tonight and I’ve decided to leave my anon on, but if I come home to any more hate I’ll be shutting it off for a good while.

I’m not going to publish these asks. I’ve ignored the users and I just didn’t want to look at them any longer than I had to. But let me make something clear as shit. CRYSTAL FUCKING CLEAR.

I am not trying to be a person of color. I make a point to avoid appropriative behavior exhibited by people like good old Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. If I’m appropriative I apologize and change my behavior. THAT is “trying to be a person of color.”

I’m not calling all white people racist. I’ve been accused of being self-loathing and some other uglier ways of saying this. I’m just acknowledging that white people are the ones in power therefore we are part of the problem.

I do not think I am a special snowflake. I understand that I have to raise voices of persons of color, not my own. This is against my nature because I’m just very opinionated but I’m trying. I don’t think I’m the best white person ever.

I’m not a secret white supremacist? I don’t even know where that one came from, honestly. 

And as for all of the other ugly offensive words thrown at me honestly fuck you. You’re clearly racist fucks and you are the fucking problem and I’m done here. 

I’m going to a movie. Don’t send me hate, because all I’ll do is ignore it and shut off my anon.

Are you seriously back with this shit? 

No. I’m absolutely not. I’m a white girl who recognizes her privilege and wants to end it. 

I just reopened my fucking anon and more of this? Quit it.
