There is something about poverty that smells like death. Dead dreams dropping off the heart like leaves in a dry season and rotting around the feet; impulses smothered too long in the fetid air of underground caves. The soul lives in a sickly air. People can be slave-ships in shoes.
Zora Neale Hurston, Dust Tracks on a Road: An Autobiography (New York:  HarperCollins, 1996), 87. (Originally published 1942)

Anonymous asked: There are many white people out there who are racist but there are so many who aren't too.. You're just grouping them all together, and it's the worst feeling when people accuse you for being racist no matter the reason why.. I don't think being racist towards whites helps in any way, it just makes you look bad

Says the white person who benefits from their privilege regardless.

Literally the first thing I see when I open tumblr. White people, it’s too early for your shit

Right like stop being a fucking whiny baby and just accept that you can never experience racism. Me disliking you will never harm you… I dislike you by default but that is NOTHING like being oppressed by default. Just stop!

Petty and clueless and always trying to be included.

"Even though the facts are laid out, I still wan’t to tell oppressed people what they can and can’t feel! It’s not fair! I’m not used to being told no! 😫"
