"Even with videotaped evidence of police destroying black people, many freedom-loving Americans remain unconvinced of a systemic problem. Maybe some day the perfect tape will be released, one in which the dead or maimed African American has just the right wardrobe, complexion, size and diction to warrant empathy."

—Jesse Williams on the death of John Crawford

The phrase “black on black crime” needs to go. 90% of all crime in America stays within a racial group yet only this one has a name.

Sorry I’ve been gone so long loves

I’ve been living life, working two jobs and going to school full time. I miss tumblr tho. So maybe I’ll be around more.

Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist.
