on today’s episode of “what’s wrong in my life” my blanket does not cover my feet
"girls dress too revealing now days" says the teenaged boy with his pants pulled down to his knees and muscle shirt so big you can see his nipnops
TW: disgustingly blatant racism
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]
"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
i’m honestly deeply ashamed because of the harshness of our world
Wow damn this is fucking ridiculous

This is very important. It highlights the respectability politics that fueled a lot of the Civil Rights movement. It’s never to discredit Rosa Parks or Martin Luther King, but it is so important to understand that there were other people involved in this whole thing and also to understand why their names are rarely mentioned. There is a reason why the young, handsome, college-educated, MLK was recruited to play the position of the leader just as there was a reason why Rosa Park’s was made the face of the bus boycotts.
Claudette’s name should be known by more people. Teenage activists should be praised instead of mocked for being immature (as they are now) and especially a young black girl in the middle of the civil rights movement, fuck can you imagine how scary that would be?
