Up and over

Last week at the International Meeting of Black...
White person (bursting through the door): Don't worry everyone; I'm here! Sorry, I got stuck in traffic, but I finally made it. That's right. I'm a white person! Please, hold your applause. I'm here to help you in the fight against racism. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm sincere, caring, and enthusiastic and ready to help in any way I can.
Black woman: Um, well I guess you could start by--
White person: Hey, I've got an idea. Let's all dress up like Trayvon Martin and march down main street! We'll call it "One Million Hoodies" and we can all go out and by Skittles and Arizona Teas and make speeches about white privilege.
Black woman: I don't... I don't think that'd be--
White person: Hey, I noticed one of your pamphlets said "End White Supremacy." First thing's first, we need to change that. I don't know, the phrase "white supremacy" sounds like it might alienate white people. How are we supposed to end racism without white people's help?
Black woman: You know white people created racism, right?
White person: OH THAT IS IT. YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER END RACISM UNTIL YOU LEARN TO BE NICE TO WHITE PEOPLE. HOW DARE YOU BE SO CRUEL TO SOMEONE WHO JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU? I AM SO OUT OF HERE. GOOD LUCK ENDING RACISM WITHOUT ME. YOUR FIGHT IS NOW FUTILE.
Dion: Now watch white people argue with this post and successfully miss the entire point.
longdivisionnnn: videohall: Wow that’s amazing, I thought it was fake after seeing them draw on the paper. That alone is ingenious. this is. SO COOL.
animalsbeingdicks: Being the new kid at school was never harder than at lunch time.
incandescentquill: as-cool-as-i-am: youarenotyou: frrrass: thestoryofabipolarbear: You are a person with bipolar disorder. You’re a person with schizophrenia. You’re a person with OCD. You’re a person who is depressed. You’re a person with psychosis. You’re a person with a mental illness. Your illness doesn’t define you. You are your own person as much as anyone else is. This is...
I was like “haha, I wonder what it looks like to search for the ‘personal’ tag on tumblr.”
yomommasofat asked: You remind me of Beret Guy from XKCD.
hanasaseru asked: Compliment! Puppyfaceyou are fun to talk to and I like your hair!

"rap and hip-hop isn't meaningful or complex!"
2Pac: And since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman and our game from a woman, I wonder why we take from our women. Why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think it's time to kill for our women, time to heal our women, be real to our women. And if we don't we'll have a race of babies that will hate the ladies that make the babies. And since a man can't make one, he has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one.
Jay-Z: Silly rappers, because we got a couple Porsches, MTV stopped by to film our fortresses. We forget the unfortunate. Sure I ponied up a mill, but I didn't give my time. So in reality I didn't give a dime, or a damn. I just put my monies in the hands of the same people that left my people stranded. Nothin' but a bandit, left them folks abandoned. Damn, that money that we gave was just a band-aid, can't say we better off than we was before.
Kanye West: Is it genocide? 'Cause I can still hear his momma cry, know the family traumatized. Shots left holes in his face, 'bout piranha-size. The old pastor closed the cold casket, and said the church ain’t got enough room for all the tombs. It’s a war going on outside we ain’t safe from, I feel the pain in my city wherever I go. 314 soldiers died in Iraq, 509 died in Chicago.
Mos Def: When the average minimum wage is $5.15, you best believe you gotta find a new grind to get cream. The white unemployment rate, is nearly more than triple for black so frontliners got they gun in your back. Bubblin crack, jewel theft and robbery to combat poverty and end up in the global jail economy. Stiffer stipulations attached to each sentence. Budget cutbacks but increased police presence. And even if you get out of prison still livin join the other five million under state supervision. This is business, no faces just lines and statistics from your phone, your zip code, to S-S-I digits. The system break man child and women into figures. Two columns for who is, and who ain't niggaz. Numbers is hardly real and they never have feelings but you push too hard, even numbers got limits. Why did one straw break the camel's back? Here's the secret: the million other straws underneath it - it's all mathematics
Lupe Fiasco: I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit. Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets. How much money does it take to really make a full clip. 9/11 building 7 did they really pull it. And a bunch of other cover ups. Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts. If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut. The school was garbage in the first place, thats on the up and up. Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust. You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough. If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the fucks”. Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such. And that aint Jersey Shore, homie thats the news. And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth. Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist. Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit. Thats why I aint vote for him, next one either. I’ma part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful. And I believe in the people.
(arinwolfe) This RIGHT HERE is why I *refuse* to have a genre biased. Rap may not be my stomping grounds, but it has just as much power as alt. rock or punk. Every genere has its place.
strong as you all are you can’t stand the sight of blood if there’s not a frame around it. you mill and murmur with your dinner plate eyes affixed on a carmine splatter affronted at its stark plainness it should have a matte finish and a tasteful border or a four-line stanza to make it more palatable. bloody as you all are you can’t stand the sight of your own blood if...

Post response to this John Scalzi post and his numerous follow ups after the post went viral. Useful for the flower analogy, but even more so for the list of suggestions for “What am I supposed to do with all this privilege?” Some REALLY well-put 101 stuff in here, especially a link to a good takedown of the “female privilege” trope.

Tips for Flying Commercially
Reposted because friends pointed out that my ‘read more’ cut destroyed all the actual text. Thanx everybody! ^^` I wrote this e-mail to a friend of mine, who was going on her first flight. I thought I’d share it with Tumblr just in case it might make anyone else’s airport experience easier or more convenient. Some edits were made to make the text less specific, but links...

fuckyeah-nerdery: Oh my god, that is amazing. So… do people actually hate Kim Kardashian for a reason, or is she just loathed because she doesn’t ‘deserve’ to be a celebrity and made it big because of a sex tape? Like, has she done anything loathsome, and is she actually a measurably worse actor than, say, Nic Cage? I am asking this honestly. I sorta wondered the same...
Weird Myths About Privilege Rhetoric
Marginalized people want you to feel bad and guilty for being white, cismale, heterosexual, born into money, etc. Marginalized people believe that they are automatically better than privileged people. Privilege is a direct measure of how good your life is. The most privileged person in a conversation is automatically wrong because they lose at oppression olympics. Hating the impact of...
