I’m so tired of the “omg I’m white passing n the mean brown n black kids hurt my feelings!!!”
That is not the same as racism u fuckin pendejx
And at the end of the day… U will leave school and enter a world where your white skin will give u all sorts of privilege and all your cracker dreams will come true
"All ur cracker dreams will come true"
IM SCREAMING PLS
For real. White-passing latinxs, youhave got to do better. Always tripping like “just cuz my skin is light doesnt mean ______”. Shut the fuck up already. It means a lot of things. Mostly it means u need to shut the fuck up and listen.
You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.

i am seriously not exaggerating or joking when I say the #1 sign of an abusive person is how they respond to an attempt to assert boundaries
i’m not a psychologist but i got my degree from the school of hard knocks ok and that is really the common denominator
don’t trust anyone who tries to argue with your need for them
Seriously. Pro tip: if a friend repeatedly asks you to spend time with someone who you’ve said you don’t feel comfortable around and puts you in situations where you have to be near that person, or tells you that it’s your fault or that you’re giving off a ‘weird vibe’, they’re probably not actually your friend.
Surprise LIMP WRIST set at Fed Up Fest tonight. So many beautiful queerdos, so many posi vibes. We’re playing with DISTRACT FUTURE and SIN ORDEN tomorrow at Ex-Mount Happy. (at Laundry Mat)
This looks like it was so incredible. So proud of every friend, acquaintance, hometown heroine, and fave band who was involved.
White supremacy is the “ethnic” section of the hair aisle. It’s the “African-American” section of the bookstore that’s mostly romance novels for some reason. It’s the prison-industrial complex. It’s Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra.
It’s the fact that most of the wealth and power in the western world sits squarely in the hands of white people. It’s any part of society that treats white as the default and everything else as “other.”
White supremacy is a holdover from the days of colonialism and slavery, but it’s been largely upheld by people who either pretend it’s not there, consciously sustain it, or reinforce it to survive. Respectability politics falls in the latter category.
