How does someone elses culture exist simply for the liberation and ‘empowerment’ of privileged white women?

Belly dance does not exist for you to find yourself, ignite your passion, rediscover your womanhood, or embrace your sexuality.

yasserkhan:

The FBI used the no fly list to coerce Muslims to be informants and spy on other Muslims. This is just one of the many low level tactics that they use in order to get individuals to comply with them for their own agenda. To top it off none of the guidelines that they “abide” by are transparent to…

the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato.  sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great

i needed this, thank you.

Ron tripped dazedly toward Harry and Hermione. “You’re okay,” he mumbled, before Hermione flew at him and hugged him tightly.
"I thought - I thought -"
“‘M all right,” said Ron, patting her on the back. “‘M fine.”
"Ron was great," said Tonks warmly, reliquishing her hold on Lupin. "Wonderful. Stunned one of the Death Eaters, straight to the head, and when you’re aiming at a moving target from a flying broom -"
"You did?" said Hermione, gazing up at Ron with her arms still around his neck.
Always the tone of surprise,” he said a little grumpily, breaking free.

Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining.

HIGH SCHOOL



This is how to run a stick of Chapstick
down the black boxes on your scantron
so the grading machine skips the wrong
answers. This is how to honor roll. Hell,
this is how to National Honor Society.
This is being voted “Most Likely to Marry
for Money” or “Talks the Most, Says the
Least” for senior superlatives. This is
stepping around the kids having panic
attacks in the hallway. This is being the
kid having a panic attack in the hallway.
This is making the A with purple moons
stamped under both eyes. We had to try.
This is telling the ACT supervisor you have
ADHD to get extra time. Today, the average
high school student has the same anxiety
levels as the average 1950’s psychiatric
patient. We know the Pythagorean theorem
by heart, but short-circuit when asked
“How are you?” We don’t know. We don’t
know. That wasn’t on the study guide.
We usually know the answer, but rarely
know ourselves.

Anonymous: what are you tryna say exactly with you "Lupita livin in a J Law world"

kanyewesticleandthepeasants:

If you’re referring to my tweet - it basically just means that while Lupita and Jennifer are both incredibly talented actresses - Lawrence will continue to get leading role after leading role and will probably play leading lady in several movies in one year and Lupita will get a leading role…umm…well…once every 5 years maybe…if we’re going by Hollywood’s track record. 

Basically “a Lupita Nyongo girl living in a Jennifer Lawrence world” is a woman of color living in a world where it’s nearly impossible for her to acquire the same level of success as a white woman despite being equally talented.

-

But I feel like society is changing and while I know Hollywood will still be partial to white actors and will continue to cast white actors as “default” I hope Lupita can achieve success in the thousands and thousands of endorsement deals she gets for being the classiest woman in Hollywood because lets be honest, right now it’s her and Angelina Jolie and everyone else is a commoner.
