this is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen
I have to assume that most of these notes are calling the image out on its ridiculous, moronic bullshit because otherwise … whattttt the fuck
that’s racism and that’s sexism because when you enslave or marginalise or oppress a group of people throughout the entirety of human history because of their race or because of their gender … it’s because of their race or their gender
it’s not “being unkind” when white people tell black people that they’re worthless it’s part of a pattern that has been going on for like thousands of years where white people decided that black people were an entirely other species that they could enslave and kill and rape because they basically thought they WEREN’T human beings and woah guess what, that kind of shit doesn’t just go away, the effects of racism are still everywhere you look
you don’t get to suddenly decide that racism and sexism are over when they’re very clearly not over
… as demonstrated by this image promoting racism and sexism
If your view of the world matches the logic of the picture: don’t talk to me.
“I respectfully remind you sir, that we have been the most patient of all people.”
-Letter from Jackie Robinson to President Eisenhower of May 13, 1958
After he retired from Major League Baseball, Jackie Robinson went on to champion the cause of civil rights from his position as a prominent executive of the Chock Full o’Nuts Corporation.
Robinson had grown increasingly impatient with what he regarded as President Eisenhower’s failure to act decisively in combating racism. In this letter dated May 13, 1958, he expresses his frustration and calls upon the President to finally guarantee Federal support of black civil rights.
Recently the following quote by bell hooks was shared and reblogged on tumblr over 350+ times:
“White supremacist power is always weakened when people of color bond across differences of culture, ethnicity, and race. It is always strengthened…
I made a series of Calming Bunnies (based off of the Calming Manatee meme) for my friend Gab, who isn’t a huge fan of manatees!
We can always use more bunnies, I think.
Hysterical panic attack trauma sobbing about this right now oh my god this is everything.
everyone needs to see these!
I’m already obsessed with bunnies. This just killed me.
Black women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see Black women. White women wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see women. White men wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see human beings.
I don’t know if you guys saw the episode of Kitchen Nightmares, or if you’ve seen anything from their facebook meltdowns. But Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona openly admitted to stealing their servers tips! So if you could please publish this, it’s a link to a petition to get them investigated by the US Department of Labor, and hopefully the resulting legal action will ensure that everyone who worked there gets compensation for the lost tips.
Not only do they steal tips from the servers, they are verbally abusive to their staff and customers. This was all shown on the Kitchen Nightmares episode, as well as many reviews from people who’ve eaten there. I’m sorry that this isn’t exactly a Robin, but I’m hoping that if you guys publish it, it’ll get the remaining signatures it needs (which is about 800 more at the time of submitting).
Ramsay talked to a former waitress there, and the waitress said she’d seen 50 people come and go in her year and a half there. The husband admitted that it was more. So please, Robins, let’s help the Robins who suffered at the hands of Amy’s Baking Company hopefully get back the tips that are rightfully theirs!
[I also don’t know what to tag this as, but considering the verbal abuse I’m using the trigger and violence tags.]
YOU LITTLE PUNKS REALLY NEED TO FUCK OFF FOR ONCE. NEVER HAVE I OR MY HUSBAND STOLEN TIPS FROM OUR SERVERS. YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM. YOU KNOW WHY DON’T YOU HAVE A CUPCAKE? YOU’RE TOO BUSY WASTING YOUR LIFE AWAY ON TUMBLR NOT HAVING A REAL JOB. BIG WOW KIDDO. I’LL BE SURE TO ALERT THE POLICE AND FBI COMPUTER CRIME UNIT OF THIS BLOG AND HAVE IT REMOVED. HAVE A FUCKING GOOD DAY.
((I have no idea what this is about, but when I read “YOU LITTLE PUNKS”, I busted out laughing. That is all. Good day.))
Gaslighting is a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory,perception and sanity. Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.
