"Indulge your inner Latino"
I don’t even feel as though I have an inner Latino and I have Cuban blood and speak Spanish
White people really be pushing the shits and other white people be like OH YEAH IM CELEBRATING HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH BY SOMEHOW HAVING LATINO INSIDE MEEEE BUT NOT ACTUALLY EDUCATING MYSELF ON THE FUCKED UP HISTORY OF INDIGENOUS LATIN@S (I feel like there is a specific word for that and it’s not coming to me) IN AMERICA OKAY
Them shits don’t even look like they taste accurate. Like, it’s just for a white persob to go “ooooooo, I’m being so exotic. I like extra mild salsa and tacquitos”
Your inner Latino?
Stop white advertising execs at all costs
While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.
"When you feel perpetually unmotivated, you start questioning your existence in an unhealthy way; everything becomes a pseudo intellectual question you have no interest in responding whatsoever. This whole process becomes your very skin and it does not merely affect you; it actually defines you. So, you see yourself as a shadowy figure unworthy of developing interest, unworthy of wondering about the world - profoundly unworthy in every sense and deeply absent in your very presence."
Ingmar Bergman (via sullenmoons)
This quote was on a journal my mother gave me when I was young. She had started to encourage me to write in journals to help with my overwhelming emotions. To this day, this quote reminds me that control is within my power and that the past is the past. There is little I can do about it now, but I can learn and grow from it.
I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and insomnia when I was 23. I am still going through therapy and am still have some difficult times here and there. While it is nothing compared to how it was, I know now that the most important thing to do when you have something wrong is to speak out. No one can read your mind. You have to, and its okay to be afraid.
