I'm under the tunnel, I'm holding my breath.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson 

Race is constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it.

The man in the picture is Rachid Nekkaz, a French-Algerian businessman living in France.

He heard about the niqab ban in France. Then he announced that he will pay all fines for women who wear the niqab - not just in France but “in any country in the world that bans women from doing so”.

He opened a fund of € 1 million. Then he said, “My sister, go out free wherever you want and I will pay the fine for you”

Allahu Akbar, May Allah reward him.

Take note FEMA this is how you properly do activism to help women who cover themselves.

Fucked…. 

I hope that this image travels the world …“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.

Movies and different forms of media always make having a job look like a constant party. Which it could be if you had other people supporting you.

But it sucks if you do not. I don’t need all of this free time if it’s not making me any money. I don’t need this free time if I can’t afford to do anything with it. I can’t borrow money from people and tell them I’ll pay them back because I don’t know when I will be able to. This combined with other things has made this summer the worst that I can remember. I’m stressed out to the point of being sick and finding little to no joy in living.

OKAY you don’t have to like beyonce but don’t you DARE say she is overrated. 

this woman has been working at it since she was A CHILD 

this woman is one of the most WEALTHY, POWERFUL, CREATIVE, TALENTED, VISIONARY, LEGENDARY, ICONIC, WORLD RENOWN, INDESTRUCTIBLE PERFORMERS IN THE PLANET 

don’t you dare say the success of a MOTHER, WIFE, PERFORMER, ARTIST, WOMAN OF COLOR is not well deserved just because you don’t like her.
