You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… oh, fuck it.

GET TO KNOW ME MEME3/10 movies » Fight Club (1999)

"Warning: If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don’t you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned- Tyler."

meredith and derek meme + [4/9] heartbreaking moments.

I’m gonna see that my wife is cheating on me with Mark, who happened to be my best friend. It’s just so pedestrian, common and dirty, and cruel. Mostly just cruel. I left, came out here.

Things I Need White People To Understand

black-culture:

  • Slavery didn’t end with the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. is not a cudgel to be used as a Yes-Man for any reverse racism propagandist.
  • Reverse racism does not exist.
  • "Post-racial" < ————- miss every last one of us POC with that shit.
  • Racism didn’t end with integration, voting, interracial marriage, POC being on tv, POC being in politics, POC being in films
  • Colorism is a direct cause of racism.
  • Internalized-racism equates only to a POC bearing a racist mentality to their own individual race(s).
  • Interracial marriages and relationships are not the cure for racism.
  • Biracial/multiracial children are not the cure for racism or colorism.
  • Adopting children of color while saying that their race, ethnic designation, and culture don’t factor into who they are and are either unimportant or irrevelant to their existence is not okay.
  • Fetishizing POC is not okay.
  • Fetishizing POC can go beyond sexual terms:
    Touching POC hair or skin without their permission is not okay.
    •   "I just want to adopt a ton of asian babies!"
    •  ”Indian people have such ____ eyes I wish I had them!”
    •  ”I love the way Latin@s speak with their accents.”
    •  ”Black girls with good hair are what I live for.”
    •  ”I wish I were [ Black / Asian/ Latin@ / Indian / Native & Indigenous] because then I could BLAH BLAH BLAH or be BLAH BLAH BLAH.”
  • There is no such thing as good hair. Stop shitting on women with naturally kinky hair.
  • A woman rocking her weave is just as valuable as woman rocking her natural.
  • You can still be racist and be married/be in a relationship with/have children with/have a relative or friend who is a POC
  • A POC can internalize racism for their own races and perpetuate white eurocentric beauty standards as well as respectability politics
  • Respectability politics and tone policing does not prove any point and only further enables racism/bigotry/ and colorism

  • Being bullied by a POC does not mean you’ve experienced racism
  • POC can not be racist  We can be prejudiced. There is a difference between the two. Run to your dictionaries if you want but unless you are a POC and have experienced racism first hand you do not know what it feels like nor do you have a grasp as to the magnitude of it in your everyday lives or just go here for this wonderful slideshow that explains why not in depth: http://wocinsolidarity.tumblr.com/post/53341129027/and-even-a-bonus-slide-for-any-remaining-queries
  • Being victims of racial profiling applies only to POC
  • The umbrella term POC refers to the multitudes of races and ethnic designations that are not White. That being said the varying groups of people who are Black, Latin@, Asian, Native & Indigenous have their own  layers of racial diaspora within them each with differing languages, dialects, cultures, traditions, politics, economic, and racial conflicts and issues. WE ALL SUFFER OPPRESSION BUT NOT ALL OF OUR OPPRESSION IS THE SAME. It may not be the best term to credit each individual race and or ethnic designations but it is the most understood, try though in conversations to be specific.
  • Traveling is not the cure for racism
  • Transethnicism is never okay.
  • Cultural appropriation is never okay.

  • Latin@ is an ethnic designation.
  • African American Vernacular is a real language with differing dialects depending on the regions a person is in.
  • It is up to POC and POC ALONE as to whether or not we choose to reclaim racial slurs used against us as terms of endearment for our own individual race(s)
  • POC don’t want apologies on behalf your race. We want you to use your privilege and take action within your communities to help dismantle racist and discriminatory agenda.
  • There is no such thing as the race card.
  • Starting off sentences about how you aren’t a racist but [insert your unnecessary opinion or thought as a white person] has already condemned you to be one
  • POC don’t owe you any justification or answers. There are books in libraries. There is the internet. DO THE RESEARCH YOURSELF.
  • If POC do take the time to answer your question READ IT. LISTEN TO IT. THEN READ IT OUT LOUD AND LISTEN TO YOURSELF. We have said exactly what we wanted to say, that is the only answer you need from us. Ask another POC if you must but do not keep pushing they same question on them either.

  • There is a difference between cultural exchange and cultural appropriation. Learn it.

  • I don’t have anything more to say. Let the swarm of unfollowing and inbox hate commence. I’ve said my piece.

My depression tends to spiral out of control. It just needs a grain of doubt to get started. I lose all confidence in the future, all my energy and motivation dissipate. What is left behind is a sad shell of a person lying flat on his face, unable to summon the strength to do anything productive.
