Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.

I’ve been there.
And our school has a uniform, I was wearing the leggings UNDER my winter skirt so you can’t even use that dumb ‘but it distracts the boys’ excuse. I was wearing more clothes than I was supposed to because Victorian winters are fucking COLD

Young girls taking action against sexist dress codes are my favourite thing.


yessss im fucking tired of school systems dismissing children from class and school to avoid drama and controversy

Anonymous asked: The leaders of the white community need to speak out about the riots at pumpkinfest. This white on white violence needs to be addressed. Savages.

MAYBE if they stopped wearing polos, yoga pants, and Uggs, they would earn our respect during this tragic crime!

Look, I’m not a reverse racist.  I have white family members and friends.  But if the white community needs to get this stuff under control, we need to make sure white children aren’t growing up in this destructive culture.

Tuh! well MAYBE if they weren’t so LAZY and did well in school they wouldn’t be such thugs! I MEAN, look at me! *I’ve* worked hard for everything I’ve gotten, they have no excuse!!!

Maybe if they spent less money on pumpkins and more on taking care of their baby-leashed kids, this wouldn’t have happened. smh
