june has had enough
june strikes again
#ITooAmHarvard is a project by Black students at Harvard to speak out about the racism that they experience in their daily lives as students. It will also be a play.
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
Fuck with a nigga tho 😂😂 whispered cause my mom and dad are literally in the next room lol 😂💁
Arizona bill to DISCRIMINATE against gays
This pisses me off soo much. So I was watching CNN with my dad who is just as upset about this bill as I am. One of the dumb ass senators of Arizona came on studdering, mindlessly talking about how this bill is not discrimination it’s to protects other peoples religious beliefs. What in the FUCK?!…

- Ku Klux Klan
- The War on Drugs
- Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo
- How white racism grew out of slavery and genocide
- How whites still benefit from slavery and genocide
- White anti-racism
- The Southern strategy
- The rape of black slave women
- Madison Grant
- The Indian Wars
- Human zoos
- How the Jews became white
- White flight
- Proposition 14
- Homestead Act
- Tulsa Riots
- Rosewood massacre
- Tuskegee Experiment
- Hollywood stereotypes
- Indian Appropriations Acts
- Immigration Act of 1924

And so on. No fear of running out of topics: there is more than one a day! I am sure my commenters can come up with tons more, probably some big ones that are not coming to mind at the moment (I did not list slavery, the abolitionist movement, the civil war, Reconstruction or Lincoln since they are, in fact, covered in history class, however poorly).

The length of this list is astonishing
I only wish I could say it is astonishing….
This motivated me so hard today. We actually get the honor of granting wishes for Make-A-Wish every now and then… And I just can’t get over the idea that someone would use that wish to meet the guys and I. These opportunities are some of the most incredible things we experience as Paramore.
BatKid!!! What a little hero!!
Make-A-Wish Foundation made this kid’s dream come true. What a wonderful thing that has happened.
I love the make a wish foundation! My dad got to help a little boy be a solider /MSG for the day. The little boy even got to shoot the guns with the soldiers and ride in a helicopter. It was amazing.
Hi lovely followers and non-followers! Well a little about me, eh? So today as I was listening to the new JCole album, hints the song playing in your ear right now (; anyway we have this like dock in the living room and as I went to get up a wire cord jumped out and decided Hey, lets trip Teona today. As fast as I had stood up I tumbled! Hit my head on the edge of the couch and my cut foot from Jamaica (long story lol not really) on the glass table. I laid for a good 20 minutes wallowing (is that a word?) in my misery. and my sister's dogs were attacking me. Ehh. Hi! my name is Teona White and I'm a clumsy misread misunderstood confused adolescent lol or something to that extent. My father is in the military and I'm the only "kid" left at the house. I'm at the point where I'm really wondering what it is I'll be doing in life. Well, I guess thats it for now. Oh wait and I just moved to Houston from Colorado soo let's see how this goes.
