“but your opinion was different a month ago”
oh my god, you’re absolutely right
learning, growing and changing the way you think is completely unnaceptable
i’m sorry for not being immutable
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤

American newspapers just seizing the opportunity to have a little fun with slavery. Totally accidental and/or harmless.
In other news: microaggressions are common verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile or negative slights to marginalized groups. (via Donovon X Ramsey)
What do you think? Catchy headlines or microaggressions?
The last two I could write off as just lazy editing
The first two? Motherfuckers playing games
All of them are intended to demean. You could shorten the film title to “12 Years” just as easily and actually more descriptively, but throwing the word “Slave” around with “master” and pictures of Lupita Nyong’o is a way of re-emphasizing how US society views Black people.
