literally i feel like it is not safe for black people in america and thats terrifying 

No. Do not generalize all of America. The racism is much more prominant in sourhern states. Where I live in NY I cant even remember the last race based hate crime, if we had any. We even have a black mayor. I grew up in a good school system and racism just did not exist at all. The hand full of black kids in my class were intelligent and upstanding great kids so I never saw a point in judging them because of their skin color.

omg wow they have a black mayor and a handful of intelligent black kids racism is fixed phew what was i thinking 
ofc a black mayor and a handful of black kids is totally enough to invalidate my own personal feelings and opinions about something gosh golly gee silly me

"The hand full of black kids in my class were intelligent and upstanding great kids so I never saw a point in judging them because of their skin color."

LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

thanks for invalidating your whole ALREADY STUPID statement with your own racism omg that’s rich that’s so fucking rich 

…no…race…hate…crimes…in…nyc…

what bizarro world do you live in?

'racism is more prominent in southern states' NO

racism is different in southern states but i’d like to think the people of the north have the ability, not to mention the drive, to meet the south as equals in pretty much any challenge the universe can throw at us

also i know what that ‘handful of black kids’ in your class thought of you, having been a member of a ‘handful of black kids’ in many different situations throughout my life: they didn’t like you. they didn’t trust you. they knew that if they hadn’t lived up to your standards of ‘intelligent’ and ‘upstanding’ that instead of judging them individually you would have let that color your opinions of black people everywhere, despite them being the only black people you knew. they knew you were the kind of white person who’d use them as the sadder, more flaccid version of ‘but my best friend is black’ in a discussion about racism one day

you didn’t know them, but they knew you perfectly

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.

This is awesome. 

YASSSSS!!!!


Permanently get from round you white people who try to quantify and authenticate your Blackness.

"A gargantuan figure blessed with the greatest lightness." My character grew up in the Court of Miracles, which is the 17th-century version of the modern-day ghetto. There were 12 in Paris and the one I grew up in was the biggest and the worst.I don’t know who my father is, my mother died when I was five, so then I basically had to fend for myself. Got into trouble here and there, I was a street thief, you know, a hustler of sorts. But also a romantic, someone who was in need of a family unit and love. The reason why the musketeers regiment is so important for Porthos is that it is the only family he’s ever known. There’s an amazing amount of passion and pride for Porthos in being a musketeer. The Fleur De Lis that he wears on his shoulder guard means the world to him. That brotherhood. 

Fraternity, loyalty, equality - those things are very important to Porthos. 

I liken Porthos to a human hurricane - on the inside, the eye of the storm, you’ll find peace, serenity, beauty… cross him or those he loves, the Musketeers, and you will find yourself in a tempest of discomfort. “

So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

Sometimes body modification is just a way of telling yourself “this is still my house, I paint the walls and and I hang the art because I’m the one who owns it”

Hell yes.
