empowerment for the lady do-gooders, believers, brave hearted, young, colorful, & those that are truly different.
A mile in everyone’s shoes.

This idea came to me in the middle of a dream, my best ideas typically do. Work with me though people.

What if you were only identifiable by your soul? What if everyday, everybody woke up a new looking person on the outside? I mean a new face, skin tone, gender, race. Ya know, all those pesky little things that stop people from seeing you a certain way or only seeing you a certain way. Everyday you would wake up with the same mind & soul, but just a new body & in the place of the world where your body is from. A different body each day equipped with the skills & knowledge to play your position of the day.

Just imagine, going to sleep an African woman dying of AIDS, waking up an Irishman, & going to sleep the next night as a child dying of starvation. Or what if me, an 18 year old African American girl woke up as an 18 year old Chinese immigrant worker girl. But this goes on everyday until you die. Talk about perspective. Imagine all of the things that would be possible if that were possible: there would be no more racism, sexism, world hunger, & poverty. Nobody would look at someone & judge them because it could be just the next day that they become them. There would be a new level of empathy & sympathy. Imagine going to sleep in a completely healthy body & waking up in a cancer stricken one. Try living in the body of a pregnant woman or an elder with arthritis. You would truly have to seize & be grateful for every moment. What would you do to make it count & help the world?

If it were me, say I was a billionaire for a day, i would donate half to the poor & the other half to research. Who knows, the next day I could end up in poverty or sick. Changing into someone new everyday, it would be bound to happen anyway.

It would only be when we die that we change into who it is we truly were.

Sex Without Commitment

In today’s culture sex is glorified in the aspect that as long as you are legal & know what you’re doing, it is perfectly acceptable to have as many partners as you desire. But do you see the fault in this accusation?

Do you believe you are hurting yourself with “just hookups” whether you have feelings involved or not?

I have the worst lower back pain while sitting down. Why!?!?

your baby is low inside of you & pressed up against your spine. My son tore my back up when I was pregnant!

indigenous people of the Amazon mixed their waste with soil and fertilized the soils of the rainforest.

white people in Europe threw their shit in the streets and spread disease to the americas.

Everybody else in world knew the basics of a clean ass, but we’re savages…

*sips tea*

And they still have the audacity to call us savages.

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.

i finally put some thoughts into words // thedeathcats (via taint3ed)
Q: this could be random and unnecessary, but it am always wondering why white people like choose trendy foods and hip foods or whatever? like who sits down and is like "ok white people, I command all of you to obsess over macarons and tapas and quinoa..."

White people have been Columbussing for centuries now and i don’t think any of us could tell you why other than white supremacy, manifest destiny, racism, etc, etc
