If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other.
A CERTAIN drama has become familiar in the United States (and some other advanced industrialized countries): Bankers encourage people to borrow beyond their means, preying especially on those who are financially unsophisticated. They use their political influence to get favorable treatment of one form or another. Debts mount. Journalists record the human toll. Then comes bewilderment: How could we let this happen again? Officials promise to fix things. Something is done about the most egregious abuses. People move on, reassured that the crisis has abated, but suspecting that it will recur soon. The crisis that is about to break out involves student debt and how we finance higher education. Like the housing crisis that preceded it, this crisis is intimately connected to America’s soaring inequality, and how, as Americans on the bottom rungs of the ladder strive to climb up, they are inevitably pulled down — some to a point even lower than where they began.
i mean don’t you think it’s interesting that white feminists are PISSING THEMSELVES over the (barely noticeable) merida redesign and starting petitions and emailing disney and kicking up this huge fucking fuss
but when it came to pocahontas’ outfit becoming even MORE inaccurate and racist and mulan getting the shit whitewashed out of her and turned into a ~*~delicate oriental pearl~*~ instead of a warrior it was like “yeah that’s bad, also the glitter is tacky. gee whiz”

First you’ll need a pitcher (plastic or glass your choice) then you’ll need some koolaid mix: flavor (red or purple), water (preferably alkaline) and at least a large cup full of sugar.
Mix ingredients. Stir and add sugar until you can feel the diabetes and the 500 years of oppression
Then serve chilled.
And there you have it: reverse racism also known as it doesn’t exist.
Stay pressed everyone.

We live in a world in which some of the people we are closest to are often not near us at all.
When we document our day-to-day existence in photographs and Instagrams, these people are absent. Their presence in our lives is absent in our digital memories.
Photographer John Clang’s series Being Together seeks to correct this. Using Skype and projectors, he captures families visually as they are virtually.
“In these images,” Clang told me over email, “I am marking the time for these families, enabling them to remember these strange moments of togetherness with the technology presently available. The picture doesn’t stop here, it lingers on in their memory. It embraces the intimacy and closeness of a family, no matter how far apart they are.”

This has me in tears. All the feelings.
You’re not the only one.
My life currently. I miss my family.
