Anyways because I was too sick to go on my service trip I’m going to try to schedule an earlier flight to San Diego and then also work as many hours as possible to make up for how much my credit card bill is about to be.
White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
Nah. I don’t really like white people that are or try to be “down”. My stepdads white friend is the coolest white guy on the planet. He’s from the hood and went through a lot of the shit we deal with. He never once even asked permission to say it. When you’re white and you’re truly a friend to a black person you don’t need a word to validate your connection. There’s no reason for a nigga pass.
HAHAHA HOLY SHIT WE WERE LOOKING AT PICTURES OF SURGERIES IN CLASS AND ALL THE GUYS WERE HOOTING AT THE SLICED BREAST ONES AND THEN THE TEACHER SWITCHED TO A PENIS PIC WHERE IT WAS CUT OPEN AND SOME 300LB JOCK DOUCHEBAG FAINTED RIGHT OUT OF HIS CHAIR BOYS ARE WEAK BOYS ARE FUCKING WEAK
NYT: What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet?
TEJU COLE: I have not read most of the big 19th — century novels that people consider “essential,” nor most of the 20th-century ones for that matter. But this does not embarrass me. There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life’s too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she’s one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too.”—Teju Cole, "Teju Cole: By The Book" A New York Times Q&A, March 6, 2014 (via jalylah)
