Not to mention the whole damn town gets cursed
he doesn’t just DIE, he’s lynched because the Gaston-equivalent sees them together and the whole town is horribly racist and that’s why she starts killing people
I WILL DEFEND THESE TWO TO THE GRAVE
it is amazing to know that 300,000 people are with me on this
Me flirting: So do you think Dumbledore’s over protection of Harry to the point where it harmed more than helped him stemmed from a desire to compensate for being so careless about the life of his sister and abandoning his brother when he was supposed to be the head of the family?

Angela Y. Davis at the University of Chicago - May 2013
worth watching every moment
Angela Davis on how the prison system promotes transmisogyny, the gender binary, and normativity, as well as racism.
I was here this was AMAZING
hanging out with friends who are quite different from yourself and drinking sweet cheap wine and watching mindy and when harry met sally, slam poetry youtube videos, scrolling through old photos of our past selves, reading out loud the highlighted passages of junot diaz and nikki giovanni that we keep on our bookshelves. beautiful enlightened women. women i am so fortunate to know.
Starting a list for my final year at uofc.

When you say you’re a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.
Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.
Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.
It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.
It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.
It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.
Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women.
I hope you know the weight of your words, or that you at least make efforts to understand.
today i was like, wouldn’t it be a super idea to drink a ton of trader joe’s wine, eat a box of caramels, a banana, some grapes, and start watching the O.C.
and it was.

"It’s tough to be a journalist in this country. I’ve been arrested four times. It’s very difficult to get information. Government institutions are forbidden to talk to you. Ordinary people are extremely suspicious, because they think you might be security services. But it’s very important work. People need to know where the oil money is going, who’s benefiting from the contract, where the proceeds are being used. The ordinary person doesn’t know, and has never before needed to know. For decades, people have been conditioned to the idea that only government officials can make decisions on their behalf. It will take some time for the country to learn individual responsibility. It will take time and education to teach ourselves. But I believe that education is like cleaning yourself. And I think if you come back in fifteen or twenty years, this will be a very different country. With education, the spirit of being hostile will vanish.”
