*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)
*we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.
AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”.
When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?
If color didn’t matter, you wouldn’t need to point out that this is your black friend to prove a point.

"Suitable to be part of the cosmos
With my eyes closed, I see you clearly
Combined lifetimes with like minds, your lovelight shines
Bright the apple of my eyesight
The tender kiss that whets my appetite
My mighty Aphrodite, the flame that ignite me
Your name just excite me
Your eyes so alive they aright me
Cause you are so beautiful
You don’t even know the length I would go
To make absolutely sho’ you is respected and protected
And never neglected, I hope my prayers is accepted…”
- Blackstar, “Beautiful”
The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.
There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.
I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.
She is literally one of my favorite people and a huge inspiration to me. She might be a heck of a lot shorter than me (literally 10 inches shorter), but to do what she can takes some serious strength and endurance. I can’t do half of what she does today, but one day I will.
This is badass!!!!
Someone finally made it!
She is/was a beast!!!!
AHHH I watched that one! She’s amazing
My dad and I both watch this show, I was screaming the whole time she was JUMPING through the obstacles that she was clearly at a disadvantage for, since she’s 5’0 and 100 pounds.
My dad texted me “Just watched Kacy. that had to be one of the most phenomenal things I’ve ever seen”
She’s such a badass, I love everything about her!
