We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed.
Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.
These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s. But the United States’s political climate is so different from anywhere else in the industrialized world that I fear we will just continue to get farther behind in education (and in % of people living in poverty) until we decide to make some big domestic investments.
Im white and i have mega curly hair... when I dont maintain it, it turns into little dreads and get knotted up. so once, I threw it to the wind and helped my hair do its thing. I got dreads since it was inevitable. I understand why its cultural appropriation but I've had a few people "call me out" on it. My hair does it naturally but I nod and agree because its easier than trying to convince people that my hair does it on its own.

First they’ll criticize our slang. Make us seem uneducated for using it, when the reality is they’re mad we can code switch. Then they’ll use our slang mockingly. Like they really don’t want to use it, but it’s so absurd they can’t help themselves. Then they’ll make money off our slang, t-shirts, cups, bracelets, etc. Then they’ll convince us it was never really ours. It’s been public domain forever.
Feel free to replace the word “Slang” with neighborhoods, and music too.”
Gross, white dreads from Lady Gaga.
“Poor Emma, when she turned eighteen, then the paparazzi just became criminals, in my view. In what other context could five men chase a woman down an alley, and it be ok?”
this so needed to be said (via littlemissmutant)
I like DanRad a lot, but I’m adding this from Sienna Miller too, because dammit, it has been said, by a woman who has experienced it, and it needs to keep being said:
‘I was a 21-year-old girl and there were times when eight large men were chasing me down dark alleys — and because they had cameras it was thought to be alright.’
