'Breaking Silence' is the first of its kind in documenting American Muslim women’s stories about their sexual assault experiences.
Help fund the project!!! Some really great rewards for pledging!
keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.

Some of us have a very childish attitude. You hear some Black people say, “I don’t look at color.” “I don’t see the world in color.” A person victimized in terms of their color and they don’t see it. And it’s such a foolish, illogical statement. It’s sort of like a child that closes it’s eyes, and because it doesn’t see believes it’s not seen. And so we often think because we don’t see color, the world doesn’t see us as colored. And because we don’t see ourselves as Black, the world is not going to look upon us as Black. Foolish, stupid kind of thinking.
And so they have some people who think then, if they don’t see themselves as African, or they don’t see themselves as Black, they’re not going to be treated as Black, but that very case itself illustrates that problem, doesn’t it? It’s like some people who think they get degrees they’re going to be protected. You know that kid that got killed the other day in the park? And a lot of people were alarmed, “Oh, he went to a Black private school and he got a full scholarship,” as if that would had stopped the bullet. And so those of you who get these degrees, when these people start attacking you, do you think they’re going to stop and ask you, “Where did you get your degree from?” “DMCC, let me off!” No, no. They’re going to see your Black skin and they’re going to lay it on you the way they lay it on anybody else. As a matter of fact, if the system works right, it’s going to be the educated ones that get it first.

You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.
Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)
i remember even just a year ago, i’d see pictures all the time of people with captions saying “i’m ugly” and stuff like that
but now, just about every day on my dash, it’s gotten to be like a thing where people will say “my hair looked super cute today” or “i’ve been feeling so body positive lately”
how awesome is that

Everybody eating but us.
But at the rate we’re waking up to the importance of group economics we are destined to return to greatness.
Esteemed filmmaker Spike Lee came under fire recently for being outspoken about the gentrification currently taking place in Brooklyn, New York. One of Lee’s complaints is that the new neighbors in these revamped cities and neighborhoods don’t have any respect for the culture and history of the cities they are now flocking to (x).
For many people, Brooklyn is synonymous with hip hop culture. Brooklyn has given birth to some of largest names in rap music such as Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Mos Def, and multiple others. However, much like the city it became popular in, rap has taken a cultural shift within the past few years, largely due to the many white hip hop artist that have become popular.
traces0fmylipstick and some more. I just went to candy land gurl.
These are cute! That site is the devil. Got me wanting to chop my hair off! Lol.
Shit like this makes me want to cut my hair. Then I remember I have a big ass head & need hair for camouflage
^^^ Same :(
long at the top & short all over.

All of the above mentioned things
I loved my hair when it was short and straight, but I had to be at the shop every week to get it curled and reshaped up because I just don’t know how to do all that. It was 35 dollars every time.
thinking about a colored tapered cut, but upkeep :(

This is such a boss pic.
If I had a posse- we would look like this.
They all look so epic. They literally look like they’re about to take down an army and come back victorious.
In ten years I want a movie about them.
