So much for that really feminist video she made for “Hard Out Here” huh? You know, the one that black feminists and other feminists of colour and their allies said was anything but. Where’s your god now white feminists who praised this video…WHERE IS YOUR GOD.
just because i don’t follow u back doesn’t mean i think u have a shitty blog. you might just have posts/fandoms/stuff i don’t really want on my dash. and hey, that’s fine. it’s YOUR tumblr you’re here for you and that’s goodgreatawesome
but please don’t think me not following you back means i hate u 5ever and that u can never inbox me or reply to my posts or follow me on twitter or something b/c that is not what it means at all
"aesthetic" is a very good word, important word. "i love the fifties." no you don’t the fifties kinda TOTALLY SUCKED for many human beings in America. "i love fifties aesthetic" well then, awesome. go you with your bright blocks of color and cute skirts and mini jackets and hair poufs.
So I’m going through my archives (moving tumblrs btw I’ll link when I’m done), and I’m at November 2012 and just two straight pages of untagged audio posts celebrating Obama’s victory and it’s kind of nice to relive that atmosphere, you know? Takes you back to that deep sense of relief and a moment of positivity.

The nice thing about having lived in a small, homogeneous town is that when I call to change my address for jury summons and start off with ‘I live in Canada’, the woman on the phone lets out an audible groan and just says ‘don’t worry about it, you’ll be removed from our lists’ without me submitting any of the paperwork purely since she doesn’t want to have to deal with it. :p
Shit wouldn’t happen if I lived three counties over, s’all I’m saying.
I’m an Early Childhood Education major, and I’m taking an Intro to Education class this semester that requires education majors to go to public schools in Toledo, Ohio to observe classrooms as well as help tutor the kids in the grade you are placed.
On Tuesdays, we meet in small groups and today this white girl said something so offensive it made me want to slap her. We were all talking about how some of the 8th grade girls at the school look our age—nothing offensive in that conversation. Mainly we were just saying how we felt too young. Then the white girl goes on to say, “The school we’re placed at is really ghetto. Like…all the kids in my class have some ghetto names.” And she starts laughing obnoxiously. I just stared at her, and so did this other mixed boy at the table. Then she goes on to say, “I mean some of them are cool. But some parents are just setting them up for a life at McDonald’s.” She sounded so ignorant and she thought she was being so funny. Meanwhile, my name tag is facing her and my name is Shardae. My name isn’t conventional (by white standards), yet she didn’t say anything about my name.
It kills me that she wants to be in this profession because I take education very seriously, and who wants a teacher that’s going to be judging your character off your name? Honestly, I really feel bad for any future students she may have if she actually continues in this field. She may be able to blame it on the fact that she comes from a small ass town, but that’s no excuse. You absolutely cannot provide a safe learning environment if you have such a racist mindset. It’s disgusting. I hope she finds guidance.
