Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.

When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.

And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.

The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*

The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.

Is stress inevitable?

When I was at a dead end job and not making a whole lot of money I was stressing over the lack of money to pay for my bills/rent, now I’m at a really great paying job with tons of benefits and the most amount of money I’ve ever made but sweet lord the stress it brings is not worth it sometimes. 

All I think about on the weekends are what I didn’t get done and what reports or tasks I have due and my game plan for the upcoming week. 

Vicious cycle.

in 2003 don bartletti chronicled the 1500 mile migration route through mexico, known as “the beast” for its life threatening hazards, made by hondurans trying to reach the united states.

to avoid authorities, migrants (fourth photo) hide until the train picks up speed, risking the chance of slipping on the gravel or falling under the wheels. others, like santo antonio gamay (eighth photo) risk falling off from the fatigue of having held on for fifteen hours.

experts estimate that almost 50,000 children make this journey every year without either parent. as photographer don bartletti notes, “only the brave and the lucky reach their goal.”

but bartletti also describes how In the chiapas countryside he photographed a boy and girl race their horse alongside the train. “the fleeting scene brought a few moments of joy to young honduran stowaways who have learned to fear the worst from people along the rails.”

Qwear: Choosing the Color of Your First Suit

Are blue suits more versatile than black suits? What about charcoal suits? Does color even matter? Recently we got a question from one of you regarding what color to get a first suit:

“I’m going to be buying my first suit, but…

“I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. [some whistles and cheers from the audience] Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to.” Chris Rock

Well, America in a nutshell

The Mi’kmaq of Elsipogtog are resisting fracking on their unceded territory. Here is an article/video about the blockade. The RCMP attacked the camp today, some of which you can see in these GIFs.

This may become a serious stand-off. Some say the new Oka. There are caravans and resource deliveries being set up around Canada. Here are some links for some starting in Vancouver. (Apologies for the facebook link)

I suggest all who are able to make an appearance. One surely filled with rage. One reason Oka failed so miserably was due to the lack of resources. The state starved them out. We must not let this happen.

The top gif is brilliant. Fuck the police. Power to the people, always
