earlier today i was thinking about the thousands of girls who post videos on youtube reviewing makeup and talking about their fav products and making tutorials and how no girl has ever once done it just to impress men like literally that whole community exists just for girls because it’s something that so many of us enjoy and yet men still think that we wear makeup for them
So you understand that little white girls seeing only thin white girl’s being showcased, praised and adored, can fuck them up. But you don’t get why Black and Brown kids seeing white faces constantly is a problem. Okay.
the american flag is historically a rallying cry for imperialism, genocide, the international suppression of democracy, and the violent reproduction of capitalism. elevating patriotic symbolism and allegiance to national identity above human liberation is actual fascism. unconditional faith to the ideology of national heritage and national pride is fascism. p sure burning the american flag is a historical necessity.
“We got rid of tuition fees because we do not want higher education which depends on the wealth of the parents.”—Gabrielle Heinen-Kjajic, Germany’s minister for science and culture. Germany Just Abolished College Tuition Fees (via x09)
“The Incas, the Aztecs, the Mayans, all dark-skinned Indian people, had a highly developed culture here in America, in what is now Mexico and northern South America. These people had mastered agriculture at the time when European white people were still living in mud huts and eating weeds. But white children, or black children, or grown-ups here today in America don’t get to read this in the average books they are exposed to.”—Malcolm X (via american-radical)
i was going through the pho tag (without the accents, which i know now is BS) and i found this and let me just say, dude, this blog is teaching me a fuckin thing or two. from a white girl food lover, thank you so, so much. god knows we need someone to put us in our place when it comes to food appropriation.
i don’t do this for you
i do it for my parents and grandparents and their parents and for vietnamese cultural integrity
and no, i don’t think it is my job to put you in your place. i don’t put in emotionally draining work so that you can evolve
the onus should not be on me. it should be on you. to check yourselves and your peers
i understand the intention behind this ask, but this mentality really annoys me
this blog is not white-centric. stop thinking it is. not everything is abt and for you.
