    I HOPE ZAYN LEAVES THIS TWEET UP FOREVER

    I HOPE HE DOESN’T LET THE BACKLASH PHASE HIM

    I HOPE HE ALWAYS REFUSES TO LET PEOPLE DILUTE HIS RELIGION AND WHITEWASH HIM

    I HOPE HE IS 100% UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT STANDING UP FOR WHAT HE BELIEVES IN

  • "It is reported that Maya Angelou has likened racial microaggressions or petty humiliations to “small murders,” in contrast to the blatant forms of oppressions called “grand executions,” in which the lethal nature of biased acts is obvious (Greene, 2000). Microaggressions have the lifelong insidious effects of silencing, invalidating, and humiliating the identity and/or voices of those who are oppressed. Although their lethality is less obvious, they nevertheless grind down and wear out the victims.

    Studies reveal that a lifetime of microaggressions takes a major toll on the psychological functioning of marginalized groups in our society (Constantine & Sue, 2007; Crocker & Major, 1989; Herek, Gillis, & Cogan, 2009; Lyness & Thompson, 2000; National Academies, 2006; Pierce, 1978, 1988, 1995; Salvatore & Shelton, 2007; Solórzano et al., 2000; Steele, Spencer, & Aronson, 2002; Symanski, 2009). When speaking about the Black experience, for example, microaggressions have been described as “offensive mechanisms used against blacks”; they are “often innocuous,” but the “cumulative weight of their never-ending burden” may result in “diminished mortality, augmented morbidity, and flattened confidence” (Pierce, Carew, Pierce-Gonzalez, & Willis, 1978)."

    I want activist communities to complicate their ideas about Islam and Islamophobia.

    The response to the Western neocolonialist, Orientalist, patriarchal, and racist idea that “Muslim women need to be saved” (by white people) is overwhelmingly the opposing claim that, “Muslim…

    Mardin, 1915: one night, the Turkish police round up all the Armenian men in the city, including the young blacksmith, Nazaret Manoogian, who is separated from his family. Years later, after managing to survive the horrors of the genocide, he hears that his two daugthers are also still alive. He becomes fixated on the idea of finding them and sets off to track them down. His search takes him from the Mesopotamian deserts and Havana to the barren and desolate prairies of North Dakota. On this odyssey, he encounters a range of very different people: angelic and kind-hearted characters, but also the devil incarnate.

    The Cut, directed by Turkish-German Fatih Akin, and starring Tahar Rahim, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

    there is nothing we, collectively, as the star trek fandom, could do or put here on tumblr that would in any way surprise william shatner, because i mean this is a fandom in which somebody cosplayed a giant vulcan penis and did an interpretive dance while in the costume and this happened decades before tumblr began tumbling. i think the real question here is, can tumblr handle william shatner

    Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

    • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
    • Honest social commentary
    • Targeted to the college age demographic
    • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
    • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

    Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

    • White people calling it racist
    • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist
