PSA: Big corporations putting feel good feminist messages in their advertisements wont result in women’s liberation as much as it will result in goading liberal minded folks to buy more shampoo or whatever. There’s no point in fawning over these commercials.

Study finds: White children far more negative about interactions with different races than Black children.

Is anyone actually surprised though?

These are the children of the adults who were raised by the people who fought to keep Jim Crow alive. These children are being raised by the offspring of men and women who lynched black people for sitting on the wrong side of a restaurant; the very people who fought to keep segregation alive and killed Martin Luther King Jr.

So by all means, I doubt we needed a study to prove this fact true.

To add to the above argument:

Even if the child is raised in a household where race is NOT a topic of discussion the child will still pick up on Racial Micro Aggressions.

If you have never spoken ill of black men, yet you clutch your purse or lock your windows when one is around; your child will notice that and process “black men are dangerous”. If you discuss how you don’t like when people get tans and have darker skin your child will process “dark skin is ugly” and it doesn’t help that the mass media the child is watching also projects this notion that white is the standard of beauty and those who do not adhere are deemed ugly and unworthy. If you don’t associate with people of color or keep any relations short and brief?; your child will too.

Many parents fail to realize that their children are ALWAYS watching them, always. Just like baby ducks following their mama, a child follows it’s parents. It’s a survival tactic for a child to copy the adult and bring the caregivers characteristics into their own being.

You may think “oh he didn’t say anything” or “he’s playing he’s not listening to my conversation”; but he is. Which is why many people turn out like their parents or develop similar parenting styles.

But racism is over. This is real deep yall.

I liked the part where they discused how black parents make sure to have their kids aware and prepared for discrimimation and diversity bc its v v v true! Parents of color in general are v involved and most of the children of color i know have had “the talk’ about race and what to expect

A new paper on sexting among adolescents … called ‘Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don’t … If You’re a Girl’… [finds] that both girls and boys send and receive naked or semi-naked pictures of themselves with some regularity, but only the girls are socially punished for it. ‘Boys in our study described girls who did send sexts as ‘sluts’ or ‘insecure,’ whereas they characterized girls who did not send sexts as ‘prude’ or ‘stuck up,” University of Michigan researchers Julia Lippman and Scott Campbell write in the Journal of Children and Media. ‘This indicates that sexting is a lose–lose proposition for girls; regardless of whether or not they sext, their behavior is evaluated in harsh—and often sexist—terms.
And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.

Saturday Chores #5, June 14, 2014
Grayson and I were out of town for a few weeks to celebrate the occasion of our marriage, but when we returned, there were still lots of people and lots of signs.
This marks the first (and probably only) time our slogan was approved by the others. I learned about how Jesus will come back and slay everyone who is a disbeliever, including Grayson and me. That doesn’t sound very nice but I did tell the guy that if he liked the sign he was welcome to stand beside me. He walked away. 

This is pretty great.
