How exactly does one make friends without being an awkward kid?

if youre white and get offended at reading ‘all white people are inherently racist’…then youre not tight about it being said youre tight bc its true…..if you werent racist or had racist thoughts or tendencies you wouldnt feel the need to defend yourself, your actions would defend your character. if you refuse to reflect on that statement then sorry but you can chalk up ignorant on the list of things you are too. not my fault.

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

"How do you bring a Black child into a world that plots their destruction before they leave the womb? How do you explain to a Black child that their life is a crime, that they will be hated for existing? How do you weight your own love heavily enough to stand up to every force that tells a Black child they are unlovable by definition? How do you bring a Black child into this world?”

talib kweli made a fantastic point in his interview with don lemon when addressing white people who try to use black on black crime to justify the unjustifiable act of killing unarmed black youth. why do people act as if there arent organizations set up in the black community to help fix these issues, and why do people ignore the facts?

Semi-moved into my dorm room.

As of right now I like the placement of everything but since my two other roommates don’t move in until Saturday things could be a bit temporary in terms of placement.

But all in all it’s pretty fucking dope!
