what it feels like:
Hey everyone, I know I’m a little over a week late posting these. But when I checked twitter and saw what happened to one of my favorite musicians, bloodorangeforever, at the popular lollapalooza festival, I was absolutely outraged.
Shame on you, Lollapalooza. Way to continue the institutionalized racism everyone faces every day!! wOW I can’t wait to never attend your festival, end of story.
And shame on you, Wall Street Journal, for misquoting Dev’s tweets to make him sound less well-spoken, to illicit that well-known response in people that he’s just ‘another uneducated thug.’ (not their words, but the words of many non-black people about black men currently)
DO NOT STAND FOR THIS MISTREATMENT. IF YOU SAW ANYTHING AT LOLLAPALOOZA PLEASE TELL SAMANTHA/DEV. THANK YOU.
I don’t think you’re ready for freddy.
dirty kichiku megane confessions: i want midou takanori to PUNCH saeki katsuya IN THE FACE many times and leave him for honda
update: im still a wuss about heights so I can’t handle rollercoasters that are tall or anything involving me 50 feet in the air
once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it
One of my closest friends, driftingthroughthevoid, is falling on hard times financially, and she is in serious need right now. Her electric bill is around $600 this month, on top of her roommates both moving out recently, and she can’t afford it on her own. She is not a frivolous person; she even decided not to go to school because she doesn’t want to deal with student loans, and she never makes random purchases (unless food and gas are “random”). I am making this post to ask if anyone can help her out to please either reblog this or donate anything you can to her paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for anything you can do!
white people: made fun of on the internet
black people: profiled in real life and can be killed for looking out of place in a neighborhood
yeah i feel u it really does go both ways
Just because you believe one is worse doesn’t make it okay to do either
believe? where do personal beliefs come into play here. call me old fashioned but i’m pretty sure being murdered is still objectively worse than being fun of.
