I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

If you sell your body and have sex with complete random strangers, why the hell do you deserve respect? You don't respect yourself enough to not have sex with everyone. Why should I respect you and your work?

Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]

"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."

Sorry but this also shows the complicated problems with white people adopting babies of color/from other countries. Would these girls be subjected to most of this otherwise?

^WOW. I guess this also shows the problem with white people having children with partners of other ethnicities/nationalities. I guess everyone should just breed with their own race huh? THAT would solve the problem. Oh wait! That already happened and the people advocating for those laws turned out to be racist pricks! You are implying multiracial families are bad. Just because they illuminate that we are NOT in a postracial society does not mean that they are necessarily the problem. Ugh.

its weird society sees people with tattoos and modifications as being unclean and poor when in reality its so expensive to get those things in the first place and the aftercare is strenuous and daily and in reality modified people are probably the most hygienic and well off people you’ll meet

amen.

The cultures of people of color are either packaged for consumption or called upon to fill cultural and spiritual voids of Eurocentrism.

That shit blew my mind and made understanding cultural appropriation way clearer for me.
