"Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t magic. Adorn your hair with stars and laugh in their face"

why can't it be "lets talk about how beautiful everyone is"??? Why is it just one skin tone? Everyone is beautiful no matter their complexion because social boundaries shouldn't separate how we think of ourselves. We're all human beings, lets all be beautiful together. Lets not leave of appreciation of some "races" as we try to appreciate the beauty of a certain section of people. (this is not hate please don't yell at me, just my opinion)

girl if u don’t get outta my inbox with this ‘we are the world! let’s all hold hands and pretend certain skin tones aren’t considered more desirable than others!’ NOW BACK TO WHAT I WAS SAYING

LET’S

TALK

ABOUT

HOW

BEAUTIFUL

DARK

SKIN

IS

HOW ABOUT WE STICK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND MA!!!!

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:

Those were my EXACT thoughts.

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.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

from Becoming a White Ally to Black People in the Aftermath of the Michael Brown Murder

This hurts me so much

Me too, love. Me too.
