The ONLY reason white people really believe black pride is white hate, is simply because white pride IS MOST DEFINITELY black hate (along with all the other colors)

Eat what grows from the rich soil,

#heforshe is so great love the continuation of making women’s issues about men love how nothing can exist unless it’s through men love it

  • women: can u not touch our butts without knowing if we're okay with it? kthx.
  • men: modern feminism has gone TOO FAR. we already gave you THE VOTE and JOBS and now you're OPPRESSING US by assuming we're all RAPISTS. PATRIARCHY IS NOT REAL B/C NOT ALL MEN.
  • Everyone is looking at you looking at him.
    Everyone can tell. He can tell. So you
    spend most of your time not looking at him.
    The wallpaper, the floor, there are cracks
    in the ceiling. Someone has left a can of
    iced tea in the corner, it is half-empty
    I mean half-full. There are four light bulbs
    in the standing lamp, there is a fan. You
    are counting things to keep from looking
    at him. Five chairs, two laptops, someone’s
    umbrella, a hat. People are talking so you
    look at their faces. This is a good trick. They
    will think you are listening to them and not
    thinking about him. Now he is talking. So
    you look away. The cracks in the ceiling are
    in the shape of a whale or maybe an elephant
    with a fat trunk. If he ever falls in love with
    you, you will lie on your backs in a field
    somewhere and look up at the sky and he will
    say, Baby, look at that silly cloud, it is a whale!
    and you will say, Baby, that is an elephant
    with a fat trunk, and you will argue for a bit
    but he will love you anyway.

    He is asking a question now and no one has
    answered it yet. So you lower your eyes from
    the plaster and say, The twenty-first, I think,
    and he smiles and says, Oh, cool, and you
    smile back, and you cannot stop your smiling,
    oh, you cannot stop your smile.

    Your essay should be short enough to be interesting but long enough to cover the point, like a skirt.

    I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’
