Because I fear that many AsAms today are forgetting our history of solidarity with black lives and black power.  

We must not forget.

Effort to protect farmworkers from sexual assault gaining momentum 

Isabel, 30, has been working on Florida tomato farms for many years since she arrived from Guatemala. Her experience in the sun-soaked fields has brought a steady paycheck, but she has also seen co-workers experience sexual abuse and sexual violence.
“Before, we would hear about a contractor or supervisor who would take women to a private place, to the edge of the field, and we understood that sexual assault is what was happening,” she said. “Now, we aren’t hearing these stories in the same way we used to.”

Today in Solidarity: Justice for Eric Garner Edition (8.23.14)

(Source: socialjusticekoolaid)

The cultures of people of color are either packaged for consumption or called upon to fill cultural and spiritual voids of Eurocentrism.
Solidarity is an act, a series of acts, a lifetime of choices and self-education, a deeply felt human compassion, NOT a button on your goddamn denim vest. Or, even really a matter of identity, when it comes right down to it.

“I wanted to say, ‘Hey ladies, you’re beautiful,’. Hopefully, this changes things and maybe it won’t change things, but I love it.” - Nicki Minaj on the Anaconda music video

Wait…when is anybody glorifying the less curvy body?

guurrrllll, they really are. and it catches you off guard, but its there

this is just a little sus. I want to fully agree but I’d love the musical references that support this claim :)

I feel like she was hinting at miley cyrus, iggy azalea, and other lames like them. i’m also thinking about how in her video, all of the women are curvy and thick in all the right places. i would love to have some big girls in there cuz dudes are glorifying curvy bodies, skinny bodies, but never fat bodies.

but ykno that’s my own agenda n such.

The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them

The amount of people who can relate to this makes me equally incredibly sad and immensely angry
