May is scary

"They smell less if one blows them out"

This quote speaks volumes.

She is literally challenging fire.

Five Myths About Crime in Black America—and the Statistical Truths

In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.

That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.

❝ To me feminism is not simply a struggle to end male chauvinism or a movement to ensure that women will have equal rights with men; it is a commitment to eradicating the ideology of domination that permeates Western culture on various levels—sex, race, and class, to name a few-and a commitment to reorganizing U.S. society so that the self-development of people can take precedence over imperialism, economic expansion, and material desires. (Hooks 1981, 194) ❞

I texted C last night to ask her if I’ve evolved in the past year or so. She said I did and that my ideas have intensified and that I became nicer. I’m changing,and its probably why I’m losing my friends. I’m changing. I’m going to try my best to get through the next month as school intensifies and they’re finishing the syllabus. I’m going to need the strength before I recuperate in June. All the best everyone x
