This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like

All the awards.

DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!



This is perfection in a campaign

I love how they included a situation where a guy could’ve gotten raped. People don’t seem to realize that males get raped too. It’s less common, but it happens. That is what sets this campaign apart from others.

Michonne Cosplay test by a friend of mine! I think it’s already pretty awesome. Go visit her Facebook page ♥: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Purple-Candy-Cosplay/294657134029793?fref=ts

Oh, dear.  Someone needs to tell this girl that blackface is never okay.

narulein nope. your test is pretty racist. Blackface not acceptable under any circumstances

Ugh, STOP DOING BLACKFACE.

There’s a link to this woman’s facebook, everyone go tell her how fucked up this is.

Can somebody explain, and I mean this in the most genuine curiosity and because I actually don’t understand. If the cosplay is not racist in any way and a pretty close depiction of the character without exaggerating features done with no malicious intent why it’s not okay and still deemed racist?

Because being black gets people killed in real life and we cannot just wipe it off to save ourselves
because blackface is steeped in minstrelsy
Please just google blackface and you’ll quickly find articles as to why
why can’t you accept if a black person is saying something is racist, that it just is?

will white people ever learn though? is it ALWAYS the duty of POC to sit them down like little children and explain to them? Like they’re so fucking privileged to point where nothing even phases them, they can’t even be bothered to use their brains to surmise whether something is incredibly offensive. I don’t give a shit if you’re “genuinely curious” you’re just ignorant as fuck. I’m so tired of this ugh  USE YOUR BRAINS

Once Again, Stats Show That Black Girls Are Not ‘Just Fine’

A NEW REPORT TAKES ON INEQUALITIES THAT FURTHER HIGHLIGHT THE NEED FOR A ‘MY SISTER’S KEEPER’ EFFORT FOR OUR YOUNG WOMEN AND GIRLS
By MONIQUE W. MORRIS
Did you know that Black girls are often steered away from rigorous math and science courses in high school, which has later repercussions on their experiences in college and beyond? Or that, compared to White girls, Black girls receive less support from teachers to engage in physical activity? And that Black girls are suspended from school at a rate that is six times higher than their White female counterparts?
These statistics are included as part of a compelling new report, Unlocking Opportunity for African American Girls, released last week by the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF). The report presents a powerful description of the conditions affecting the learning and economic opportunities of Black girls and young women, offering not just a snapshot of current conditions, but a discussion of how Black women and girls have shaped the nation’s commitment to equal educational opportunity for all children.
Black women are often thought to be “fine” in our dominant discourses on education. However, this report suggests that our communities need to pull back the layers a bit more to uncover the discrimination, bias, and victimization that plague the learning environment for too many Black girls in American schools.

Michelle replied that the dangers of the Presidency were not novel. “I don’t lose sleep about it,” she said. “Because the realities are, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station”—certainly the first time that this particular demographic truth has been enlisted as a reason to be optimistic about a black man’s prospects.

#what a heart-breaking reality we live in

She 100% right.

when white people make black people jokes

mainly because when black people tell black jokes it’s like “don’t all black mommas be like…”
and white people telling black jokes are like “what’s the difference between a dead nigger and a lazy nigger?…”
