"Now, for the first time in its billions of years of history, our planet is protected by far-seeing sentinels, able to anticipate danger from the distant future – a comet on a collision course, or global warming–and devise schemes for doing something about it. The planet has finally grown its own nervous system: us." 
- Daniel Dennett ( We Earth Neurons )

This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.


This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.

The one billionth quest

All the men’s look at me.
Do they know? Can they sense my sadness?
Are they well aware of my mission
Did women also fight for them?
With love and sadness voyage for them?
Did some take a train, a plane or a boat to meet their love where they thought he’d be?
Did they hope he’d be there pacing?
Were these men’s at work and did they light up to see them?
Perhaps they loved each other underneath it all.
Or was their irritation clearly marked on their faces at the door?
Was it over?
Did they dream of piglets and could not survive the wait?

Anonymous asked: i used to think that you had to be polite to racists but then i realized that there's literally no reason to do that.

By letting them spout their racist shit without reaction, they only learn that it’s acceptable.

"People want the rugged authenticity of being different without actually being punished for it — and I understand why they do it. I recognize the insecurity. Just a decade ago, my peers were flinging words like “terrorist” and “faggot” to me in the halls of our high school. Now I’m “trendy” and “fierce.” Either assessment rings lonely and desperate. How they are tremendously afraid of being insignificant. How the fantasy of race that they have projected on my body makes me have some mystic power they are jealous of. They are afraid of boring. They are afraid of being nothing. They are in a constant state of falling — grasping for all of the bindis, beards, dashikis, gauges that they hold on to to feel relevant. And what hurts the most is that when they do it, it magically becomes beautiful. It becomes a beard worth $8,500 and not a beard worth five bullets. When the white body wears our scars, they finally become beautiful.

Every brown boy has a story about the hair. Pluck it out of him. He’s used to it."
