This is depressingly accurate.
My friend Jalonte was stabbed to death last week and this is what a racist woman posted on his memorial page. If anyone could PLEASE help me find the contact info of her employer (her facebook page says she works at planet fitness) and spread the word that would be great. Also, feel free to message her on facebook and tell her what you think.
SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS. DON’T JUST “LIKE” THIS POST. REBLOG.
When one of my best friends died in a car accident we had racists come on her memorial page too.
Get this bitch.
We don’t protect racists around these parts.
What do you suggest I do about it?
I’m sick of feeling self-conscious every time someone brings up the burden of student loans. I dread being asked what I plan to do after graduation about paying them back. Sometimes I lie. Sometimes I make up a line about praying I find a great job or can pay off my loans by working for the government.
But I’m sick of lying. I’m sick of feeling ashamed for being privileged.
I am in graduate school and am debt free. I have Baby Boomer parents who work hard and did much better than they ever expected in their careers. They wanted to pay for my college and graduate school. They demanded to pay for my college and graduate school.
I work hard. I earned partial scholarships in college and graduate school. I work a part-time job, babysit, and go to school full-time. I am earnestly applying for jobs and I look forward to a career in public service.
I want to stop lying about the suits I buy for my internship. I want to stop saying they are hand me down’s from my cousin. I want to be able to say thank you when I receive a compliment on them. I was taught that you should always dress for the job you want, not the job you have. I want to be taken seriously at my internship and look professional—and I have the resources to buy nice-looking suits and have my hair professionally highlighted.
I’m tired of justifying my address and the backlash I receive when I tell people I am a student and live in a high-rise apartment. I’m tired of the looks my doorman gives me when he hands me my package (of work clothes) delivered from J.Crew.
So stop making me feel like I’ve done something wrong. Stop making me feel like I am less deserving. I didn’t ask to be born into this kind of circumstance and I’m tired of being judged for it.
I’m not asking for sympathy, I’m asking for people to lay off. There is always enough money in my bank account and I’m not sorry that is my situation. I understand the value of a dollar. I am not wasteful. I understand the overwhelming financial burdens of others and I highly encourage people to openly bitch about it. That blows. But your situation doesn’t change my situation. I am responsible and fortunate for the resources I have. I’ll respect your background if you respect mine.
This is a thing.
This is a thing an actual person wrote.
I’m so done with the world right now.
It never fails how people defend “privilege” as not being a choice but somehow being “underprivileged” or poor is!!!!
Dollar tree cashier cursed out.
I blame Freshalina!
WE COMING FOR THE WHITE FOLK
"What time you get off work?"
White girl thought she was baddd lmao
Da fuq I thought…..lol
White privilege is the fact that Justin Beiber’s rude, outlandish, disrespectful and sometimes border line illegal behavior is not directly attributed to him being raised in a single parent home.
White privilege is the fact that if he was black and showed this same behavior we would all be saying that he is the result of why unmarried women should not have children and how he was not “raised properly”.
Wait where is the story
To all my black brothers whom daily tell us as black women how white women are the epitome of beauty, grace and femininity and how they are the better option for you as wives and mothers to ur children because they give you all of the love, respect, and support that you deserve(unlike us untamed, angry, beasts) I want you to remember that on this day, 6 of your precious white fairies decided it was okay for a white passing asshole to stalk and kill an unarmed black teen who looks just like u..so where are ur precious “white wimmens” when it really counts?
