"The police can go to downtown Harlem and pick up a kid with a joint in the streets. But they can’t go into the elegant apartments and get a stockbroker who’s sniffing cocaine." —

I’ve seen more drugs behind the brick walls of my private college than I have ever even heard of back home in my hood.

It’s a known fact that you will find more drugs,especially hard drugs, in the suburbs than in the hood

Omg why is Eleanor and park racist? I read it a long time ago so I don't remember

not-your-cute-little-asian-girl:

Here is a good post explaining why Eleanor and Park is racist. My personal beef with Eleanor and Park is

  1. Fetishization of biracial children
  2. Asian women are referred to as “exotic” and “dolls”
  3. Eleanor is constantly made to look past Parks “imperfections” (he’s more asian looking than his brother, he’s not masculine looking (this a deeply rooted concept of the yellow peril smear campaigns)
  4. Rainbow Rowell later made comments saying “a guy like Park” was lucky being able to find Eleanor??? What???
  5. Park’s mom is portrayed as this strange Madame Butterfly character where she is madly in love with the American GI, stays at home to raise the family, and speaks broken English.

Throw it in the trash

If you think all Black people’s blogs are “social justice” blogs, you’re racist.

I read some newspaper article recently that pretty much summed up Tumblr and the responses to it this way—privileged people who come here are shocked to see marginalized people talking about their experiences, so they think everyone’s just obsessed with social justice, rather than talking about their own lives.

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime


Shoreline, Washington, USA —
A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.
They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.
He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.
Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"
