“Within each racial/ethnic group, women earned the majority of degrees at all levels in 2009–10. For example, among U.S. residents, Black females earned 68 percent of associate’s degrees, 66 percent of bachelor’s degrees, 71 percent of master’s degrees, and 65 percent of all doctor’s degrees awarded to Black students.”

as you can see black women earn the majority of degrees by proportion, making us the most educated group in america.

emma watson just learned how to pronounce feminism 3 days ago and now she think she can tell us what beyoncé’s visuals were about when she just like all the other whyte feminist™ missed the point entirely. more than likely because they lack the understanding of that key word intersectionality and dont get that things that are usually considered negative for white women when it comes to representation are not the same for black women and bey’s choices in the visual album reflected more of what black women needed to see.

she doesn’t get that black women want to see themselves as beautiful and sexual devoid of fetishization from the white gaze, she doesn’t get that we want to see ourselves as powerful and yet still vulnerable with out the stereotype of being the ‘angry’ or ‘strong black woman’ 

and its like there are things one should critique bout the album of course the ‘eat the cake’ line, among other things but its so telling that the whyte feminists are always so focused on lowkey or out right shaming her for looking sexual. which is weird bc isn’t feminism was supposed to be supportive of women being allowed to express their sexuality as they please?

like the point of those visuals was her celebrating herself and her sexuality, her beauty, her vulnerability and other things about herself on her own terms. like how do you not get that?

and how she decided to come for bey when you got all these desperate whyte pop stars being called feminist icons despite the fact they claim to not like feminism and shyt on it at every chance they get.

but ok sis i guess you thought u was sayin something.

"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

This man was a pure genius.

The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.

And the black woman ain’t even in the picture

It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

Does anyone remember this 12 year old little WHITE girl who was murdered by two BLACK kids? She was lured to one house so they could steal her bike. Her body was stuffed in a trash can by the two boys. No? Don’t remember? Probably never heard of it to begin with? That’s because it was never marked as a hate crime because she was white. The president didn’t make a personal call to her family to apologize for what happened. Celebrities didn’t give a shit. One of the kids got released with only six months served.
Tell me again that this country isn’t fucking biased.

Shut the fuck up and cry more you dumb bitch~Tae

Omg your argument is so valid! Thanks so much! I have seen the error of my ways, you’ve made me see the light! Thanks you sweet angel, for proving over and over again how ignorant this site can be!

Hun. We could give you a bunch of reasons why you need to stop comparing black people’s murdere to white people. But you wouldn’t care.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Translation: OP can only have sympathy for a white victim. But check this shit out though! http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/08/police-shootings-michael-brown-ferguson-black-men

Okay please explain to me how this isn’t considered a hate crime yet every single thing that ever happens to a non-white person, is….?

You just said they lured her so they could steal her bike… in this case, she had something they wanted. You also probably didn’t go to that link, which should’ve given you huge perspective.You ASSUME it was a hate crime, and admitted that they didn’t say it was, and had no proof of it. And if I’m not mistaken, this story made national news, really fast. Let’s be real on something though: Racism, was created by who? white people. And why would such a thing even be? Because believe it or not, racism, is a benefit. Racism is power. Racism is taught, internalized, and perpetrated to keep white people up and non-white people down. Let’s be even realer: many white people, the problematic ones, in America go about racism in three ways: either choose to ignore it and not talk to their children because they believe ignorance is the solution rather than educating themselves, subconsciously exposing themselves and their children to internalized racism with racially prejudiced ideals and biases, or are the legit KKK, Neo-nazi Confederate flag enthusiasts.Subtle racism is more common these days. Have you seen that viral YouTube video titled “Diet Racism”? Really interesting, but just in case you haven’t:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdyin6uipy4 
But you can’t sit here and try to say black and white people share the same struggle. That the media covers our murder or crimes/shortcomings in the same fashion. What this story and the others like Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Sean Bell, John Crawford, Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, the list goes far on, don’t have in common is that with this girl, she was missing for days anayway! Police had no idea who the suspects were for days. A full on investigation was set in place for this girl, immediately, and when found the suspects were apprehended immediately. 
With the black victims, not only were most of them murdered by police, but it took outrage and alarm from the public for them to even begin an investigation! If there was no outcry, who’s telling if anyone would’ve known or not. Plus, with every single one of the murders of unarmed black people, the police knew exactly who the suspects were and did nothing!!! Most of the time because the police did it! No money or fundraisers were given to the murderers of Autumn, thousands of people weren’t trying to justify her murder. Scandalous or controversial pictures of her were not displayed in the news to tarnish her reputation.
Since the beginning of America’s transformation black people have literally been treated like less than dogs! Motherfuckers never loved us! So for you to say this country’s biased as fuck, you’re absolutely right about that, because it was initially created for the greater good of who? WHITE PEOPLE! Don’t you fuckin dare try to compare this story with what racist, sick, inhumane genocide has been going on since Europeans set foot on this soil! DON’T YOU DARE TELL ME THAT RACIAL INEQUALITY DOESN’T EXIST, BECAUSE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT YOU TRIED TO SAY WITH THIS POST! DON’T YOU DARE TELL ME BLACK PEOPLE THAT KILL WHITE PEOPLE ARE GIVEN A PASS AND A PAT ON THE BACK, OR DON’T SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES! SO SO MANY LINKS ON THE INTERNET, ON TUMBLR ALONE THAT PROVES YOU WRONG BUT NAH, WHITE PEOPLE ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED BY THE DOZENS OUT OF RACISM AND NOBODY CARES HUH??? WHITE PEOPLE GETTING KILLED FOR NOTHING AND PEOPLE ARE PAINTING THE DECEASED AS CRIMINALS AND JUSTIFYING THEIR MURDERS HUH? POLICE ARE SWEEPING THEM RIGHT UNDER THE RUG HUH??? GET TF OUT OF HERE WITH THIS IGNORANCE!

JERUSALEM, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Israel announced on Sunday a land appropriation in the occupied West Bank that an anti-settlement group termed the biggest in 30 years, drawing Palestinian condemnation and a U.S. rebuke.

Some 400 hectares (988 acres) in the Etzion Jewish settlement bloc near Bethlehem were declared “state land, on the instructions of the political echelon” by the military-run Civil Administration.

Israel Radio said the step was taken in response to the kidnapping and killing of three Jewish teens by Hamas militants in the area in June.

"The goal of the murderers of those three youths was to sow fear among us, to disrupt our daily lives and to call into doubt our right to the land," it said. "Our response is to strengthen settlement."

The notice published on Sunday by the Israeli military gave no reason for the land appropriation decision.

Peace Now said the land seizure was the largest announced by Israel in the West Bank since the 1980s and that anyone with ownership claims had 45 days to appeal.

A local Palestinian mayor said Palestinians owned the tracts and harvested olive trees on them.

Israel has come under intense international criticism over its settlement activities, which most countries regard as illegal under international law and a major obstacle to the creation of a viable Palestinian state in any future peace deal.

Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, called on Israel to cancel the appropriation. “This decision will lead to more instability. This will only inflame the situation after the war in Gaza,” Abu Rdainah said.

"By declaring another 4,000 dunams as state land, the Israeli government stabs (Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas) and the moderate Palestinian forces in the back, proving again that violence delivers Israeli concessions while non-violence results in settlement expansion," it said.

Peace Now official Hagit Ofran told AFP that the legal basis for such land confiscation goes back to an 1858 ruling by the region’s Ottoman rulers.

"We are afraid that Netanyahu will carry out a lot of expansion because of the pressure he fells from his right wing and the feeling that the (Gaza) war did not end up with many successes," he said.

IQALUIT, Nunavut — A head of cabbage for $20. Fifteen bucks for a small bag of apples.

Fed up and frustrated by sky-high food prices and concerned over widespread hunger in their communities, thousands of Inuit have spent weeks posting pictures and price tags from their local grocery stores to a Facebook site called Feed My Family.

Holy hell.


WHAT IN THE FUCK? This shit is not okay.


ughhslfkajsdlf gross gross gross
64.99?????


These people are starving for a reason.
Conservationists
have been starving
these people
to death for years.


Reblogging for the extra articles. 
Also… I might show up to this protest and support them. 


Pay attention to this stuff, please, followers who haven’t heard about this!  This kind of thing is completely erased in news media.


This is really fucking important.
This is why I don’t respect anyone who blindly supports the anti-sealing protestors. Because for a lot of people, it’s the only affordable option.
It’s not just Iqaluit. In Nain, Labrador this problem has been going on for ages and nobody does anything about it. $47 for a ham and $17 for a block of cheese. In Rigolet, Labrador, a loaf of bread costs $7. Here’s another picture of an Iqaluit food price changing before your very eyes.
The NNCP is starving people, reducing their food choices, and keeping people on EI poor. This is so, so wrong.

How can we help? I joined the group and checked out the website, but I didn’t see anything that can be actively done (other than raising awareness, which, of course, is great).

Excellent question! If you read through the group (which is here, for anyone who missed it), there are people talking about some ways to help.
Look at the latest news on the Feeding My Family website to see what the priorities are and how you might be able to help.
If you’re Canadian, call your local MP and ask to discuss this issue and express your concern.
Look up ways to support putting pressure onto airlines to charge fair rates (a $1000 plane ticket should be from one coast to the other, not a few hundred miles).
Research and learn what you can about food sustainability. For a start, how about learning square foot/metre (French intensive) gardening or container gardening and starting to practice it yourself? Share these techniques with friends and family. Get good at it so you can teach them to others who have poor food security in your own area.
For the love of God, stop signing “anti-sealing”/”anti-hunting” petitions and supporting Greenpeace’s actions without understanding the complicated, nuanced situation in the North.
Watch the FB group, because people there mention direct donations and ways to help the organizations actually on the ground there.
For example, one person is starting up a donation project/fundraiser.
Look at what organizations like FoodShare are doing and support them.
There is so much to be done. Sharing news articles and stories, lists of resources, donation and fundraising pages, and knowledge about food security is critical, but there’s a lot more work of all sorts.
