I posted this three times tonight and had three people tell me that I helped save their life. Thank you to those people who have decided to struggle through to let us enjoy the gift of one more day of their prescence gracing us all. I hope that you all reblog this, to save another few. Because we all dserve another chance and hope in life. I went to the hospital 6 times before I decided to keep my life but I hope none of you suffer that much. And I hope you all can make that scary, seemingly painful, blind, hoping, wonderful step to live.
I want to help you in any way I can. ANYTHING. I mean it. If I had had someone stay with me and text me or talk to me all night, just one time, it would have changed my life. I know how hard those nights can be.
<3,
Love,
Emily

^I love this girl more than words can express.  

foundmywaywheniwaslost: I am always here if anyone ever needs to talk/vent. You have a purpose, Please Stay Alive. <3

Not just for tonight but for the rest of your life. You have so much to look forward to in the future that if you choose to kill yourself, it will be the biggest mistake of your life. You’re going to miss out on people you’ll never be able to meet, kids you’ll never have, a partner to love or partys to go to. There’s just too much that you’ll miss out on. You deserve and have the right to be here as much as the person next to you does. You’re just a drop in the ocean. You were meant to be here and you have a purpose. Don’t ever forget that. And if you feel like you don’t, just believe in yourself because you do. If you ever feel worthless or like shit, know that I love you and those dicks that tell you shit are jealous that you’re who you are because there’s something about you that they wish they could have. Please stay strong and never give up because things DO GET BETTER.

3rd time I reblog this xx

Keep your self awake, I hope your here to stay. This day is not yet over, let me be your four leaf clover.

Reblogged it and queued it so it’ll post tomorrow too. And the next day and the next so I hope I can save someone. We all love you.

someone messaged me this morning saying it helped and thanked me, so im reblogging this again, and queuing it. stay strong guys.

Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]

This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year. 

it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.

HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I) (PT II)

So while the Chief was PR stuntin, one of his officers decided to charge through the crowd and INCITE A MELEE. I repeat, the officers got physical with protesters, and in the ensuing mayhem, used it as an excuse to whoop on some of the protesters. THERE IS VIDEO! CNN is already misreporting it as an attack on the chief. Do not let them spread that lie. These pigs have no regard, respect, or consideration for the protesters, peaceful or otherwise. #staywoke #farfromover

LIVESTREAM

Reblogged from tidwellcornertr

In my dreams I see what it means to live an existence foreign to me. I know not why I do, only the what. It scares me. Because I wake up and it feels the same. Neither my subconscious nor my true life are lucid. Nothing is in my control and I am drowning in a pool of overwhelming purple skies with embered stars scattered throughout. They sizzle to the touch. Maybe I wasn’t meant to burn bright. My flame of passion is a burnt out wick of a blue candle with the aroma of disappointment. It’s scent lingers in my nostrils like a gas stations fumes. But at least those fumes can ignite. So I bravely close my eyes now to rest in the restlessness of constant worry. Will I ever he good enough for him? Will he even consider me worthy? These answers I do not know and therefore I proceed to live an existence not my own. Living in anticipation of an event that may never come. Preparing for someone who could easily pass me by. My burden is to live in reaction of them because I am the black pawn on the board. You make the first move. Until theny he forecast is purple skies with embered stars.

Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.

When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.

And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.

The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*

The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.

the perils of trying to communicate this to white people in debates. in the many debates I’ve had the chance of witnessing, race comes up about 80% of the time, when discussing this in a diverse setting. and for whites, sometimes their mindset is ‘oh, why are they pulling the race card.’ but for blacks it’s, ‘understand that purely based off of what I look like, I will experience something totally different, give me the chance to explain.’

Actually black people are the privileged ones no cause nobody wants to be charged with being racist by not giving them a job

What you are calling “black privilege” is actually referred to as affirmative action. The mere existence of affirmative action both proves and tries to combat the existence of white privilege. From a sociological standpoint the only true privilege that exists is that of the Caucasian men in the United States. All other groups, including Caucasian women, have to live with a double-consciousness. Double-consciousness was an ethnographic term coined by the first African American to graduate with a Ph.D from Harvard, W.E.B. Dubois. It encompasses the fact that all other groupings of people besides the Caucasian male have to live under two scripts of behavior. One which is the ordinary day-to-day living, and the other is the behavior shown under the judgements and influence a person perceives others to have of them.

For example: (So as to avoid the realm of race and gender I will use an anonymous teenager.)

- A teenager among one’s peers will behave in a relaxed fashion. Perhaps reckless or informal. If a parent or an adult were to enter the situation the dynamic among the teenager and his/her peers would change. The group would take the presence of the adult into consideration, thus inherently changing the behavior of the group. The adult’s presence forms a double-consciousness.

So going back to my main point, as the lady says, “Why bring [race] up if it’s not a problem for you?” exemplifies the privilege given. White people in the workforce don’t need to be conscious of a second realm because the other realm is beneficial to them inherently. In this second realm lies the privilege. The lady does not see the problem with race because she has not suffered the consequences of not being white. The genuine ignorance is also a product of white privilege. Is the lady to be blamed or hated for her ignorance? No. She is to be educated on it. So I do not mean to demean or demonize white people in order to get my point across that white privilege exists. I simply mean to provide evidence that white privilege exists inherently within the American society and that saying “Oh my God” in a frustrated manner after someone genuinely cannot relate to the issue solves nothing. The Caucasian woman and her peers need to be educated, not blamed. Their life experience was inherent and their privilege was through no fault of their own.Teach education, don’t preach with frustration.

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.
