When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. 'So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.'

^ Are you fucking kidding me?!

wow really? what the fuck do y’all think is gonna happen if you use the same door as my poor Black ass? you think you might be forced to pay a living wage?

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

The death on Friday of a New York City man after an apparent chokehold on the part of police has prompted an investigation by the Staten Island District Attorney’s office and caused Mayor Bill de Blasio to postpone a vacation while he talks with community leaders.
A passerby captured the interaction between Eric Garner, 43, and police on video, and the tape shows Garner saying at least eight times “I can’t breathe” as police appear to push his head into the ground. Garner, an asthmatic who weighed between 350 and 400 pounds, later died.
Police said Garner was resisting arrest and they suspected him of attempting to sell untaxed cigarettes. Witnesses told the Staten Island Advance that he’d just broken up a fight.
A representative in NYPD’s press room referred all questions to a press conference earlier Friday by de Blasio and Police Commissioner William Bratton.
During the press conference, de Blasio called the death of Garner, a married father of six and grandfather of two, “a terrible tragedy.”
"Chokeholds are prohibited by the New York City Police Department and by most departments," Bratton said during the press conference.
Along with the district attorney, police internal affairs also will investigate, Bratton and de Blasio said.
In the videotape, Garner is seen standing on a sidewalk in front of a store as two undercover officers appear to question him.
"Every time you see me, you’re messing with me – I’m tired of it," Garner says. "I’m minding my business officer, I’m minding my business. Please just leave me alone."
The conversation continues until Garner says, “Don’t touch me,” at which point an officer behind Garner appears to put him in a chokehold. Garner sinks quickly to the ground and four officers are on him, subduing him.
Garner says “I can’t breathe” at least eight times as an officer appears to mash his head into the sidewalk.
Police called paramedics and Garner died of cardiac arrest at Richmond University Medical Center, in Staten Island, the NY Daily News reported.
"When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time," Esaw Garner, Eric Garner’s wife, told the NY Daily News.

I’m fucking fuming. A friend shared this on FB but I guess I didn’t realized the man was killed. 
Still think we live in a post racial society? This man was fucking murdered by the NYPD. And I won’t be surprised at all if nothing is done about it/the officers retain their positions.

PREACH IT GIRL

have you ever heard about condoms or other methods “to not get pregnant” girl

Have you ever heard of pregnancies as a result of rape and abuse? Have you heard of the failure rates on contraception?

Have you ever heard of adoption agencies or police stations that you can literally drop your child off at for free if you can’t/won’t take care of him/her?

Have you ever heard of the thousands of children that just get circled through social services/foster homes because there are too many kids and not enough families to adopt them?

Have you ever heard of the millions of parents wanting & waiting to adopt those children because they can’t have kids on their own?

Have you heard that a report by Unicef says there are 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide, and this is not including abandonment, or sold children. It is estimated that 5760 children become orphans every day. So to try to make the case that it’s the responsibility of someone with a uterus to give birth against their will because other people want children is bullshit and absolutely ludicrous. 

Bam

Fucking bam

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Cleopatra was black, she was as black as Cicely Tyson. -Paul Mooney

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.
