This is what I do.

Time to celebrate the first week back at school ending by hanging out with school friends in some hippie nonsense clothing. This makeup is almost all Sephora brand and I’m obsesssssed.

Tank: Target

Vest: Macy’s

Shorts: thrifted

Shoes: Birkenstock (I literally wear nothing else)

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

I probably reblogged in the past, but here it is again in that case.

I cannot tolerate people who say that racism is over.

I know I’m not the only person on this website who can’t help but notice that the ratio of popular posts making sure to remind fat girls that we’re not allowed to ever hurt skinny girls feelings in the name of body positivity to posts reminding skinny girls to stop shitting all over fat women and teaching them ways to include us and stop perpetuating harmful shit against us is about a billion to zero.

The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies and… everybody lives happily ever after.

Liar.
