A photo campaign explores the diverse experience that black students at Harvard have to face. ”Our voices often go unheard on this campus, our experiences are devalued, our presence is questioned” — this project is their way of speaking back, of claiming this campus, of standing up to say.

Anonymous asked: A friend of mine (who's a PoC latina) made a comment recently on tumblr about finding it annoying when white people speak Spanish (she doesn't know any Spanish). I'm white so I tend to accept that she's right when she's uncomfortable about ethnicity/race issues, but this made me feel weird. I understand that there's always danger of appropriation but this is the US and we live in NYC and speaking other languages, especially Spanish, is useful. Could you talk a little about your thoughts on this?
White people speaking a foreign language would be seen as “wordly” “cultured” and “cool”
latinxs or a (poc in general) are told to “speak english because this is america” called spics or other racial slurs, etc. People have been ostracized for speaking their native language and/or having an accent. This has led to some families not passing down the language or their culture down to their children in order to “assimilate” and to avoid as much harassment as possible. And then when we dont know anything about our culture or speak the language, we’re told we are not authentic, our identities are questioned, that we are ashamed of our culture, that we arent “really __” or people say stuff like “look shes white and she knows more spanish than you! shes more latinx than you!” and thats not a good feeling to have. -e

Jezebel has an article about Iggy Azalea and it’s called “Hey, Where Did All the Women MC’s Go?”
It’s like they’ve never heard of Azealia Banks or Angel Haze…
Maybe they’re just looking for their female Eminem/Macklemore.

How many white people does it take to screw in a light bulb? None. They’ll hire a person of color to do it and then complain that we’re stealing all their jobs.

Anonymous asked: These oppression blogs are really pathetic. All you do is whine. Maybe the problem is too many white people give a shit about poc, because poc obviously don't give a shit about whites. Whites are getting tired of the guilt trip. Blacks can't help themselves so they get crafty and fabricate this bullshit about "oppression." Give me a break.
and I continue not to give a fuck about white people because of this.

Anonymous asked: You're being inconsistent in what you say say. You blogged about the criticism that you got the other day, in which you said,"all white people are racist." Nobody is denying that western culture does have some racism ingrained into it, but it doesn't follow that that racism will inevitably be expressed by a white person, nor that such a person will adopt such characteristics into their disposition. Your statement "all whites are racist" is in itself unfounded and racist. Stay free.
there are only three kinds of white people. racist white people who know they are intentionally and knowingly racist, racist white people who don’t know and deny they are racist, and racist white people who know they are racist and are entrenched in the difficult process that is unlearning their racism and actively positioning themselves against white supremacy. that’s it.
that’s literally it.

How the justice system is supposed to work:
All are innocent until proven guilty.
How the justice system really works:
White people are innocent until proven guilty.
People of color are guilty until proven innocent, even when they are the victim of a crime.

white people only care about nothing but themselves and it’s surprising how much I have to reiterate this
