I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.
The homeowner at 22 one is killing me.
This meme makes me so angry because it’s so on-target.
I am screaming
this isn’t even funny to me it just makes me want to find the nearest baby boomer and deck them in the mouth
I reblog this every time because it always re-ignites my anger.
I feel you sphynx-prince.
Raven-Symoné just posted this image on her Facebook and polish, it’s made me MAD. This is what I write about it on Facebook:
As an African this image is infuriating to me personally.
1) Africa is a continent, not a country
2) Africa has prosperous, beautiful big cities with wealthy, comfortable, happy people as well as people in dire states of need.
THERE ARE EMPOVERISHED PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND THEY ALL NEED OUR HELP. This common image of Africa as ‘Land of the Charity Cases’ makes me furious. You think of Africa and it’s all pitiful starving children, tears, hands extended, begging for your spare change and off cuts. I feel like Western Asia often gets tarred with the same brush. Charity is needed in Africa like it us needed in Asia, Europe, The Americas, Australasia, all over the world. I’m not saying STOP giving to charity I’m just saying that there are millions of people rich and poor in Africa and they demand respect not pity. We aren’t begging for your damned ice water, we are looking for ways to build pumps and wells in our villages. We don’t wan the food your child won’t finish at the table, we want the means to grow and buy our own. Africa is striving for Education, improved infrastructure, to create wealth for all of us that desire it, to create a future that isn’t war torn and tumultuous. We are more than just your ‘I’m such a good person’ trump card, we are millions of lives and languages and backgrounds and faces that are all grouped together, called primitive, with our hands twisted to look outstretched and begging.
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
According to an IRIN report in 2005, 82% of arable land in South Africa is still owned by Europeans and those of European descent through colonization.
Yet a lot of people be giving away dresses and bibles to “Africa” as a sum of thinking that is going to solve the problems persisting in specific countries in Africa.
Can we stop homogenizing the experiences of an entire continent for white saviour complexes please?
You are not helping the situations long term, and you are also continueing the racist perpetuation of Africans as “backwards”, “starving”, and “unable to fend for themselves”. When they are very much able to do so if it wasn’t for colonization and white supremacy, which you continue to perpetuate through unsustainable aid, and painting the picture of the “poor Africans”.
just the vehicle I need for the zombie apocalypse
I like that everything but the tiny little blue bug gets destroyed
This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it’s the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover.
So i gotta do the thing again.
Apparently the rumors are true - I just may have this “addiction” bullshit the people speak of.
I try to stop. I swear to god I try. Half of me really wants to. Maybe even 3/4s of me. And that same portion sees that I made more moves in 30 days of not using drugs than I have in the last 6 years of my life. And they also are screaming that this is why I haven’t been eating again. I choose to consume drugs in place of food. But that 1/4. That thing is fucking strong. And it is tricky. And it just sweeps right in and it fucks up my entire perception. And it says no but look at it this way. And it becomes what I believe. And I will believe absolutely anything to experience something other than what is happening right in front of me.
I know people say it’s just a lack of will power. And I know that I have even said that it’s a lack of will power. But what it is is a possession of will power. I do have will power. I have stronger fucking willpower than 99% of the people I have met. And when this “addiction” strikes, it climbs in the drivers seat of my will power, and it goes wherever the hell it wants.
So I went to a meeting tonight. I don’t plan on being a cheerleader for NA again any time soon, but what I’m doing isn’t working. I have to accept that.
This is stupid and hard.
