“Hang the eucalyptus upside down by tying it to your shower head with twine. When you run your shower, the steam will rise up towards the eucalyptus, filling your bathroom with the most refreshing, relaxing scent. Plus, the added greens are lovely on the eyes. You’ll definitely feel a little closer to nature.”

Hey hey remember when Beyonce made “Why Don’t You Love Me?” and Sade made “Babyfather” and both videos subjectively occupied vintage femininity while deconstructing gender, race and class and white feminists were like ‘LOL that’s not new or interesting’ but Lana Del Rey makes a self-insert Kennedy fanfic video and suddenly they’re all writing theses about her eyeliner wings
THE MYTH THAT “MINORITIES” GET MORE SCHOLARSHIPS DEBUNKED SINCE 5EVER
This is something that comes up time and time again like clockwork.Here’s a”just the facts” post.
Racists LOVE this tired old saw. The problem is that it’s complete and utter bullshit, it always HAS been, and IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF REALITY.
Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population.
Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL NEED BASED SCHOLARSHIPS????
It debunks the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships. The reality is that minority students are less likely to win private scholarships or receive merit-based institutional grants than Caucasian students. Among undergraduate students enrolled full-time/full-year in Bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities, minority students represent about a third of applicants but slightly more than a quarter of private scholarship recipients. Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.
STOP PARROTING RACIST MYTHS INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY FACT CHECKING
So stop saying this shit. you’re just plain fucking WRONG. Also, racist.
Can we just take a minute to think about how, if I were to put up an identifiable nude picture of myself, on my own blog, taken in my own bathroom, it could come back around an ruin my life?
Let’s just think about how, no matter what I do with my life - become a teacher, a lawyer, a scientist, a professor - a photograph of my naked body could render largely null and void the value that others would be willing to give to me.
It would not matter if I were a virgin - it would not matter if I meant them for a lover’s eyes only - it would not matter whether or not I did it for money - my own naked body could actually ruin my life and my work.
Can we just think about that? That is powerful, and not in a good way."

Solution to the US immigration problem:
Give all the foreign aid we’re currently giving to the Middle East (Egypt, Israel, etc) to Mexico, to help them clean up so that it becomes a safe place for people to live in work. Let’s give some economic stimulus to them, because if Mexicans are economically stable, they can be a consumer of US made manufacturing, and they won’t find it necessary to illegally cross the border just to keep from getting killed.
And while we’re at, let’s legalize marijuana so the cartels have less power.
Fool, do you have any idea about the size of the Mexican economy?
México is one of the world’s largest and most productive economies and its one of the worlds most populous industrialized nations whose quality of life in Latin America is only surpassed by a handful of small, economically specialized nations. Do you have any idea about the sum of money it would take to make México “economically stable?”
Never mind that in the past decade, México has outpaced the US, Europe and Japan in growth and that Mexico is one of the world’s largest exporting countries.
The issue of unauthorized immigration from México has to do with structural inequalities that are made worse by the United States’ economic manipulation and asymmetric benefit under trade agreements like NAFTA.
The issue of unauthorized immigration in México has to do with the United States’ negligence and complete disregard for poverty, racism and illness in its own population within its own borders.
Never mind that while México is the source of the majority of unauthorized immigrants in the US now, it is no longer the main source of clandestine migration into the US—if you believe otherwise you are likely uninformed or a racist.
Economic stimulus! Lord Jesus, pinches gring@s.
Ya’ll really have no idea about what’s going on in your own neighborhood.
César I love you.
Also, marijuana is like, petty cash to cartels. Legalization wouldn’t even make a dent.
the way I see it, “black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other
