I really think non-NDNs don’t get it.

That these things, regardless of your faith, are inherently so culturally important that we will — every single time — call people out for reducing us, for disrespecting us, for marginalising us, and for treating us, or our social practices and sacred items, as a joke.

If you truly don’t understand why we get so angry about this, read a book on the genocide of the NDN, how it was more than blood and bones, it was language, it was culture, it was food, it was clothing.

You don’t understand, a hundred years ago there were a lot more Native languages spoken on this continent. There were a lot more traditionalists. Two-hundred, three-hundred? There were a lot more Natives here too.

We were literally and systematically stripped of our lands, languages, clothes, and history, and then told to endure an institutionalised racism and assimilation.

Learn our history and if you still have the audacity to talk over us and demand your position is right on our issues, then you’re a supremacist, and there’s no fixing you.

whitewashing characters is a racist act of aggression against people of color

it is upholding white supremacy, it is telling us that the only way a character can be lovable or beautiful or desirable is if they look white

WHITEWASHING CHARACTERS IS A RACIST ACT OF AGGRESSION AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR

IT MAKES FANDOM UNSAFE FOR FANS OF COLOR

WHY IS THIS SO FUCKING DIFFICULT

Adam Liptak, the Supreme Court correspondent for The New York Times, tells Terry Gross about the Court’s pro-business identity

This court is the most pro-business court since at least the Second World War, and it routinely votes in favor of business in cases on arbitration, class actions, employment discrimination, injuries from dangerous drugs. The business community, the Chamber of Commerce, loves this court. If you look at all of the justices that have served in that period of time since the Second World War, the two most likely to vote in favor of business are the two justices appointed by President George W. Bush: Justice Alito and Chief Justice Roberts.


And by “pro-business,” what’s meant is restricting the rights of workers and consumers.

It’s past time for liberals to stop assuming the court will rule against bad laws nationwide, and focus on keeping them from being passed in the first place.

"Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in."
my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations. (via maarnayeri)
