Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here.

THANK YOU

I have a cat that was declawed then abandoned. I can’t imagine her pain, confusion, & loneliness. I don’t blame her mistrust of other cats; we’ll never know what poor Molly went through

Racists. Can't live with them, can't live in their neighborhood unless you meet their arbitrary standards of skin color.

This is kind of long, but I feel you.

In this episode video blogger Laci Green explains the practice of victim blaming, how it works and why it is such a serious problem both online and offline.

I never asked Tolstoy to write for me, a little colored girl in Lorain, Ohio. I never asked [James] Joyce not to mention Catholicism or the world of Dublin. Never. And I don’t know why I should be asked to explain your life to you. We have splendid writers to do that, but I am not one of them. It is that business of being universal, a word hopelessly stripped of meaning for me. Faulkner wrote what I suppose could be called regional literature and had it published all over the world. That’s what I wish to do. If I tried to write a universal novel, it would be water. Behind this question is the suggestion that to write for black people is somehow to diminish the writing. From my perspective there are only black people. When I say ‘people,’ that’s what I mean.

—Toni Morrison (via writingquotes)
