Sad and Free

a sinking ship

A Vancouver charity, RainCity Housing, is converting city benches into pop-up shelters for homeless people. And by giving homeless people in this rainy city some dry coverage and a place to rest, RainCity is putting London’s anti-homeless spikes to shame.

Racism in advertising.
This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.

This makes me sick

I have never seen any of this marketing… What the actual fuck?

You never see any of this marketing because these advertisements are only for countries like India/Pakistan (most of southern Asia) aka countries that have only brown people in them. So companies like Dove pretend to be all pro women loving themselves in the West so they seem ‘forward thinking’ or whatever, but show their true colors in poorer developing countries like mine that are willing to buy this shit.
Don’t buy their ‘feminist’ acts for one minute.

And all your friends and sedatives, mean well but make it worse. Every reassurance just magnifies the doubt, better find yourself a place to level out…

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’
