Opening Our Closed Minds: In conversation sometimes we can get stuck in our own ideas. I think it’s important to ask “Why [do you feel that way]?” before we bark, “No [that’s not so]!” One should be willing to listen to both sides, allow the conversation to continue, allow room for discussion, allow your eyes to be open to different perspectives, and make conclusions from there. Listen to the voices that are not often heard.

Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I’m so scared my mouth will get me in trouble like this one day… just “I know my rights…” pisses them off because it’s said by a person of color and then they bring violence into the equation.

SLOW CLAP.

HERE’S WHAT ‘YELLOW FEVER’ REALLY MEANS

"All my ex-girlfriends are Asian."

If you’ve ever come across this charming come-on, you’ve probably been exposed to yellow fever

For her full rant watch the video here.

This is why I fucks with you Yvette. (x)

For extra win, here’s her response to random disgruntled white woman #52:

 “It’s 2014, not 1960 get over it already.”  -#52

“What horrible price are white people currently paying Melissa Hammersley? Are their wages or chance of career advancement affected? Do their children lack opportunities? Is it impossible for them to get a fair trial or equal jail time for the same crime? What has been SO hard for white people since Slavery times that black folks should allow them the right to use the N-word freely? I’m baffled. 

I’m sorry you, in particular, are struggling so hard with the idea that its use is NEVER acceptable by caucasians in particular but I have now completely tired of your contributions on this topic on MY page. Feel free to continue raging against the unjust treatment of blacks towards whites and the “get over it-ness” of it all on YOUR page. God bless.”  - Yvette

Feminist Frequency on race and casting for The Hunger Games

think HARD about that: not only did they white-wash Katniss, they EXPLICITLY PROHIBITED WoC TO AUDITION FOR THE ROLE OF KATNISS. Smells like blatant racism.
