I’m not a model, the camera just went off
So you telling me that the U.S has completely cured the American doctor with Ebola in 26 days and he’s being released today. While Africa has been dealing with it since the 70’s and they are still looking for a cure?
Because it wouldn’t be ‘profitable’ to help Africans right? Even though the US has been stealing from the continent for centuries??

Bring that heat, baby sister!
Mo’ne Davis Lands the Cover of Sports Illustrated
Posted by For Harriet
13-year-old Mo’ne Davis has captured national attention with her impeccable pitching. Her athleticism led her team, the Philadelphia Taney Dragons, to the Little League World Series where they have handily won their first two games.
Davis is the first Little Leaguer ever to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Ayyyyyye Philly! I can definitely get tickets to see them play
No, it’s not.
Saying that someone is hispanic/latinx doesn’t say anything about their race. A Latinx person can be of any background.
(Also, not every Latinx likes using the term ‘Hispanic’, because of how it ties us to identifying with our Spanish colonizers, and because it excludes non-Spanish speaking countries and individuals. ’Latinx’ is a more inclusive term.)
i can’t tell you how many times i’ve spoken up about harassment only to be told to “learn to take a compliment”.
since when do “compliments” intrude on my space? what kind of “compliment” makes a person feel unsafe or threatened?
harassment isn’t a compliment. know the difference.
Rape culture was intertwined with colonization from the very beginning. Rape of Native women was one of the colonizers’ tools of oppression. None of this is new. This is older than America. When we talk about rape culture in America, we are talking about something that has a legacy wrapped up in the genocide of Native peoples. This does not affect only Native American women; this affects all American women.

Is it racist that a white, 20 year old unarmed kid was shot by a black cop on Monday, Aug 18, 3 days ago and its no where in the news? Oh wait, it happens all the time, its just not newsworthy. Sucks to be white.
Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).
But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.
So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”
this gives me life and inspires me to step up my lipstick game
