So

My husband’s sister (I guess half sister but.. I still would say sister) came over to drop off some cash her other brother owed Booga and I. She said that she had just taken him out to dinner for his birthday. She spent 45 dollars to listen to him tell her that their dad was mad because she has problems with people she works with.

This is not the first problem like this. This brother of theirs always talks about other people to people and then he tells people what people said about them. It’s a problem. But he doesn’t even get what they’ve said right sometimes.

My husband’s sister is so sweet. She would never call herself that, but she takes care of like 4 birds and 4 snakes and some rodent babies. She’s also partially deaf and deals with depression.

When her brother comes over, I will tell him if I’m around and he’s come from her place that she is welcome here and he has never relayed that message. Okay, fine, not his responsibility.

But when she talks about herself, she talks like she’s so broken that no one wants to hang out with her.

Booga and I talked with her for hours about the way that her brother and mother make her feel about herself for not being into feminine things, that she can never come out to them, and that she feels like “a freak of nature” and that she thinks about suicide all of the time.

I tried to help, and tell her that it’s not her, she is not at fault. That her dad never has a bad thing to say about her so I don’t know why he would about jobs right now. When she went home, she seemed fine. We agreed that we need to have some sort of meeting about how her brother talks shit about people and transfers alot of false information.

I can’t help but feel like I fucked up so bad. We shouldn’t have talked about those things or maybe I shouldn’t have told her anything that I did. I’m shit at lying and she didn’t deserve to be lied to.

She said she was glad to get it all out and now I’m afraid that I didn’t validate that she had a reason to feel like people treated her shitty but that there was instead a reason in their eyes to treat her shitty and I just… Fuck.

Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

THIS is exactly the kind of shit that shows how engrained racism is in people- there is literally nothing about this picture that points to her being a bad mother. Is it because she has short shorts on? A cami? She’s just a pregnant woman in a convenience store.
You would NEVER see that caption if this were a white woman. And the worst part is that nobody sees anything wrong with this. It has a ton of likes, a ton of people commenting and laughing and making gross comments that I don’t even want to post here.
I am so fucking disgusted right now.

How many white women do you see with their flat asses wearing shorts even shorter than that like I don’t understand why people do this shit. Leave her alone~Tae

"She’ll be a great mom."I guess when it’s 1001 degrees outside, pregnant women are suppose to cover themselves head to toe.


Also, I’m just gonna point something out. Who does this fuck nut think they are taking a picture of a pregnant stranger to use as a punchline?

White privilege

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

"how do I have privilege?"

wonder whats the number of people who got them government subsidies to move out to the suburbs after ww2, subsidies which also excluded black people

Why is Hermione’s skin black o_o ? I am troubled here

Why wouldn’t she be? No where in the books did it say she was white. Also, why the idea of a black Hermione trouble you so much?

Now you know you cant have Black people in headcanons unless the book explicitly says she was a colored negro afro american chocolate ebony girl….

She did have loads of frizzy curly brown hair and came back from vacations ‘considerably browner’
just sayin

Crush everyone who shits on black Hermione headcanon (and also Hermione queer headcanon).
