Russian suburbs are organised in mundane repetition. There is a school, a couple of small shops, driveways with huge holes, hopelessly thin young trees and an elderly grey-haired lady concierge. How Russia’s suburbs became creative hotspots »
The thing that’s so disgusting about the murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sean Bell etc (a very long list) is that it’s not like we’re trying to figure out who killed them. We know perfectly well. We’re just trying to figure out if that black kid deserved to die. Their humanity is put on trial, like being a person wasn’t enough. Black people literally have to prove that we’re worthy of living.

HEY THIS IS THE D.C METRO!!
This. This is so beautiful.
i really had someone at work the other day tell me that only half of me could be offended at the situation in Ferguson because half of me will never experience racism (and the person was black)
that last text i reblogged is very important

Everyday I am faced with the privilege I have being a person of color with lighter skin…it may not be as intense and degrading as it was years ago when lighter skin slaves were treated better than their darker skin counterparts, but it’s still here.. Lurking around and using people of color to fight against one another.
It happens everyday. Whether it’s some shady ass statement I get about being “lightskin and pretty” to being seen as less threatening to non people of color… Lightskin privilege even comes with white people/ other lightskin people feeling comfortable enough to confide in their racist viewpoints with you because “you aren’t like the rest”(They always seem to discredit my pro-blackness due to my pale skin..once they find out I’m not down with that shit)
To believe that growing up I took that as a compliment… It makes me sick..
What makes me even more nauseous is that there are so many others who still see it as a compliment.. Who have been brainwashed into thinking we are equal to the majority.. that we are better than the minority…when in the end NO black life matters in America.
We all struggle with having our humanity recognized, but being lightskin means I get to have this false sense of it all because I’m “more acceptable”…
Now that I’m older I refuse to play into the game… It may not change the entire world, but if I am aware I can make others aware…it’s controlling us whether we choose to open our eyes or not.
I think about this constantly
honestly the most amazing 30 seconds of my life
