pizzaforpresident:

listen, i’m sorry that your culture is destroyed and that you all seem to suffer from alcoholism but we didn’t steal your land and we sure as hell didn’t do this to you

MY CULTURE HAS NOT BEEN DESTROYED YOU IGNORANT ASSHOLE. MY CULTURE IS VERY MUCH ALIVE.

we bought this land

LOL

like 300 fucking years ago

LIKE DOUBLE FUCKING LOL

get the fuck over it, get a fucking job, become a functioning member of society and shut the fuck up.

You are the one who needs to get over your pissy fit on Tumblr. I am a motherfucking functional member of society. I have a fucking job. I go to university. And it wasn’t paid for by anyone but student loans.

i have to work and go to school full time to afford to eat, you whiny cunts get free education, tons of race-specific scholarships, free housing etc etc

I have to go to work and take out extra loans to afford to keep a shitty roof over my head. I have student loan debt that paid for my education. You get tons of race-specific scholarships, too. Any that aren’t the leftover ones thrown at us non-whites. Again, I have to pay for housing. What a silly fucking claim you ignorant shit.

my family had to put off our disney world vacation by a year to pay for my braces

if we were native my braces would have been free

Aww, poor little white boy didn’t get to go to Disney World on time. :””(. You still were able to pay for your fucking braces. Again, not a guarantee for Natives. I sure as fuck didn’t get braces or regular check-ups.

like fuck

idk

im annoyed

just gfuiahguihsg

In conclusion - suck a fuck you loser.

Edit to add: I’d still be a “functioning member of society” if I was jobless and not in school. But damn this motherfucker pissed me off.

^ commentary.

nothing i can say is going to make anyone see anything differently because all the people offended come from aboriginal backgrounds and they don’t see the shit that goes on here so this is the last post i’m making about this and everything else is being deleted pronto 

YEAH WE ALL KNOW YOU’RE THE *REAL* OBJECTIVE ONE HERE. [/sarcasm]

also, hiding your bigotry does not un-bigot you.

“If white American feminist theory need not deal with the differences between us, and the resulting difference in our oppressions, then how do you deal with the fact that the women who clean your houses and tend your children while you attend conferences on feminist theory are, for the most part, poor women and women of Color? What is the theory behind racist feminism?”

-Audre Lorde (via soydulcedeleche)

But not all white feminists utilize people who do clean their houses. Let’s remember that. 

(via pour-moi)

hopefully thats sarcasm. :/ white feminists…please remember women do 3/4 of the worlds labor, MOSTLY WOC!!!! that means most if not all the shit you get at any supermarket or any kinda shop, really, has a really high chance of having been grown, picked, made by some cruelly underpaid WOC. whether you can afford a housekeeper or not. white women are still preferred for most jobs. no WOC ever gets paid as much as white women either. white women are everywhere you look as the standard. never forget that.

(via soydulcedeleche)

Yeeeah, cleaning houses is a concrete example, but also a metaphor for the work that women of color do that is rendered invisible. If you insist on keeping the quote literal, who cleans up at those feminist conferences, which are often held at universities, and who cooks the food for them and cleans the bathrooms? But beyond that, the point is to understand upon whose backs is something like white feminist academia possible.

“I don’t have a housekeeper” is a lot like “My ancestors didn’t own slaves”; neither one takes you out of the picture.

lost my MOJO!: every butt hurt native in the god damn world is sending me fucking hate for ranting about a regional problem

pizzaforpresident:

if you live in the united states or australia: nothing i said applies to you, shut the fuck up
if you’re canadian but not residing in thompson, manitoba: nothing i said applies to you, shut the fuck up

if you’re native, live in thompson, and have a computer to read my blog on, then you have no reason to be offended because obviously nothing i said applies to you, shut the fuck up

there’s a huge difference between being racist and having continuous bad experiences with the same groups of people

also i don’t understand how it’s racist for me to say those things but it’s perfectly fine for you to say “oh poor little privileged white boy doesn’t get to go to disney world”

you don’t know me, my socio-economic background, or my fucking race for that matter. so shut the fuck up because you’re making yourselves look stupid.

See that bolded part? Take your own advice, fuckwit, and stop talking about people you obviously know nothing about.

Pizza, in addition to the commentary above, here’s a protip for you: racism that doesn’t happen directly to me or in my immediate vicinity is still racism. The surge of vitriol you’re experiencing can be described as “a unified response against racism”.

I don’t know if you saw my previous response to your whinging, so I’ll repeat it here: if you can’t handle being torn up from all sides when you post a racist opinion, maybe you shouldn’t be on the internet.

this is the whiniest fucker i have seen on tumblr TO DATE!

it’s been like three days and shit and he’s still got buckets of tears about he had to go to disneyland late.

WHY ARE YOU SO MAD BRO?

you make your own life hard by continuing to act like a willfully ignorant asshole and blame the internet for not playing nice.

“If working women earned the same as men (those who work the same number of hours; have the same education, age, and union status; and live in the same region of the country), their annual family incomes would rise by $4,000 and poverty rates would be cut in half.”

(National Women’s Law Center)

Just for all those people who keep trying to claim that paying women the same amount as equivalent men is an unimportant issue to society.

(via lucypaw)

aaaand again no one talks about race in this quote, despite the article. what working women vs what working men? because if we’re talking about white woman vs white man theres only like a .25 diff…but if youre talking about hispanic or native american women, white men literally make TWICE as much. every time people put these facts up with no acknowledgement of how much more white women make compared to everyone else, its fucking bullshit.

white feminism loves to campaign on salary equality talmbout “where are my .25” while conveniently forgetting that itd be much more stark of a figure if they measure WOC against white men. where is my motherfucking DOLLAR! wtf? but why point out how privileged you are, right? its only about equality for white women in the end.

(via soydulcedeleche)

Right? Plus I rarely see an explicit mention of the fact that the median income of white women is higher than that of either black or latino men. So…all that about how racism is settled but no one cares about sexism? Bullshit.

Finding the statistics for the first time of median income broken down by race, sex, and education, and seeing that white women outearn men of color, and yet never hearing that fact from white feminists, was my first wake-up call that white feminism really isn’t interested in me. Steinem & crew can keep their shit.

It’s also true that this does not account for the fact that we’re only talking about cis people.  Trans people earn even less and have even higher rates of unemployment than their cis counterparts.  This also is true for the disabled and so on.

The strangest/scariest/funniest/ saddest thing about intra gender/class/ race interactions to me is the consistent threat of violence that masquerades as gentility/ breeding

It’s horizontal maintenance at it’s finest, backed by th hammer of the unsaid.

Be nice to me, I’m trying!!!!

( you’re lucky ANYONE is trying, you know what happens when people like me don’t care right)

It’s only…… NO BIG DEAL

( How dare you challenge, something that gives me pleasure? How dare you point out my noble intentions aren’t enough? Everyone else does it?)

Let me show you …..

( see this book/accolade/ degree? It carries with it the finest hegemony this system has to offer! I can call upon it to end you/ erase you/ kill you and you resources)

It’s Stockett’s sweet note , that really says the only truth that matters is mine and I want you to know that

It’s not cold or ” bitchy” or nasty . It’s the way to make threats when you know you don’t have to do your own dirty work?

Yes! That syrupy sweet poison that often produces White Woman’s Tears as a call to arms against the big mean women of color in feminist conversations. 

[post image: animated GIF (link to GIF).  it wouldn’t replay, so this is only a partial description.  photo is of Troy Davis, a black man with a thin round face and a small just-grown beard.  he wears big round glasses.  text reads “STOP THE EXECUTION OF TROY DAVIS!”  corner has text “amnesty international” and logo (barbed wire wrapped around candle).]

7 of 9 Witnesses say my Brother is Innocent. Stop Troy Davis’ Execution on September 21st.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

My brother, Troy Davis, has been on Georgia’s death row for 20 years despite strong evidence of his innocence. His execution date is now scheduled for Wed, Sept 21. He has a hearing in front of the GA Board of Pardons & Parole two days beforehand.We need to tell the Board strongly and clearly: There’s too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

The case against my brother Troy consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even at the time of the trial. Since then, seven out of nine witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony.

Many of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against Troy Davis. Here is what one had to say:

“I got tired of them harassing me, and they made it clear that the only way they would leave me alone is if I told them what they wanted to hear. I told them that Troy told me he did it, but it wasn’t true.”

We need to tell the Board strongly and clearly: There’s too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

just to reiterate

Seven out of nine witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony. (though according to the gif it’s 6 out of 8)

Many of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against Troy Davis.

also they never found a murder weapon, DNA or fingerprints linking him to the crime and THEY LET THE GODDAMN ALTERNATE SUSPECT TESTIFY AGAINST HIM.
