Saw this posted on my facebook this morning and just had to share. It continually amazes me how many people here on tumblr and elsewhere in the world continue to think the answer to racism is more racism…or that racism against white people is somehow “justified” or “doesn’t count as racism.”
Not only do white people think you’re full of shit, but so do your fellow POC.
Watch the video it is really good.
get outta here, birdie!!
I was just watering my plants when suddenly the camera turned on I’m not a model I swear
Sir that is a hamburger.

iT KEEPS GETTING BETTER EACH TIME
"Went to the store, sat on Santa’s lap.
Asked him to bring my friends all kinds of crap.
He said all you need is to write them a song.
Now, you haven’t heard it yet, so don’t try to sing along.
No, don’t sing along.”
So this is what trust looks like.
Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”
My first thought was “So this is the face of supreme idiocy”.
What if we exchanged the bow and arrow for a rope and then had each of them stand on ledges positioned behind them with some sinister and lethal pits just beneath the ledges? Would that work as a sufficient metaphor for trust?
Mutual trust, sort of? But if they are both in peril, then each one is also working towards their own survival as well.
But the arrow thing doesn’t work because it would be too easy for a hand to slip and loose the arrow, and if you fall back slightly too quickly then the tension would end up snapping the string back too fast and loose the arro anyway, and just…. No. That is not good thing.
True. My first thought when I saw that was “I hope neither of them suffer a sneeze.”
The scenario I presented included societal punishments which can be lethal to the mind and potentially to the body. It falls short when considering all possibilities of things that can both increase trust and snip it into pieces.
So accustomed I am to shooting arrows that my brain automatically played through the next motion of the arrow… Which was to plough into that poor woman’s neck.
From what I can tell, it might pierce the outside of her neck if it doesn’t pass right by it. It doesn’t look like she is holding it center to her body. That proximity would also allow the arrow to pass right through her neck as well.
It isn’t a large chance, but she could potentially make it unscarred, or at least minimally wounded. They likely had a emergency crew on standby anyways.
In order for her to maintain her balance it has to be pretty centred, as far as I can see. Also, the trajectory of an arrow as it leaves the knock is not a straight line, and that riser has no button so that arrow is heading left straight into her trachea.
Pulled any farther than we see in this gif and it could pierce her flesh properly, though if it was not pulled any farther then it would merely dig itself into her rather painfully without causing too much damage.
An emergency crew is not what is required. What is required is a healthy respect for sharp sticks that travel at high speeds. :P
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

It’s like when you were little and you found out your mom’s name isn’t really Mom
What?No, My mom’s name is still mom.
story about a girl I know: when she was 7 her teachers had to call her mum and they asked what her mum’s name was and she was like “uhhh… mum?”.
