My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhané.
Quvenzhané Wallis (then age 9) correcting an AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie” instead of learning how to pronounce her name. Never forget. (via thechanelmuse)
is it racist when someone says i hate white people?
Yeah, I heard this is why white people make less money, are disproportionately targeted by the justice system and have fewer educational opportunities.

Keep on coming out of the dark, gremlins. Just keep exposing yourselves….
I just called Memorial Hospital. I spoke to a “Shane” @ 10:55 am Central time 8/19. He said that the hospital is aware of Guthrie’s comments and are addressing them.
I told Shane that until Ms Guthrie’s employment services with he Hospital are terminated they should expect their phones to be bombarded by calls and their inboxes to be be stuffed.
Hit these craccas in their goddamn pockets. It’ s the only language they respond to with any common sense.
I suggest you all get on this phone campaign.
"purge them" this fucking white demon
Racists seeing movies about dystopian futures like “Hell yeah, there’s hope for a great future, let’s do all that stuff!!!
in discussions about white privilege and racism, do you think it's better for white people to shut the fuck up and give the floor to a PoC or to use their position to shed light on privilege etc. I know different situations call for different things, but generally what's your point of view?
We’ve addressed this a lot. I don’t believe white people should leverage their white privilege to try and speak against white privilege, as that makes absolutely no logical sense. I do believe white people should listen, spread the word, and correct the behavior of their white peers, but the #1 absolute most important thing a white person should do is to critically examine their own behaviors and prejudices, making sure they are not perpetuating racism in their own lives.
Don’t think about it as “How can I stop other white people from being racist?” Thing of it as “How can I stop myself from being racist?” That should be your first priority.
