"Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs."
Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)
And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”. No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.
it cannot POSSIBLY be acceptable to have so many feelings about your own work
Anonymous asked: vegeta's reaction to periods. You know you want to
the first time he wakes up in bulma’s bed covered in blood that isn’t his he shakes her awake all like “woman i think i sleepwalked again and murdered something pls help me look for the body before your mom finds it and scolds me i hate it when she does that”. bulma just calmy explains where the blood comes from. vegeta thinks this is metal as fuck. he immediately strikes conversation on this new subject they have in common. “oh so you bleed out for 5 days without dying ? dude my record was 4 days on planet frieza-X45 I GET YOU SIS GIMME A HIGH FIVE”
"I maintain that every civil rights bill in this country was passed for white people, not for black people. For example, I am black. I know that. I also know that while I am black I am a human being. Therefore I have the right to go into any public place. White people don’t know that. Every time I tried to go into a public place they stopped me. So some boys had to write a bill to tell that white man, “He’s a human being; don’t stop him." That bill was for the white man, not for me. I knew I could vote all the time and that it wasn’t a privilege but my right. Every time I tried I was shot, killed or jailed, beaten or economically deprived. So somebody had to write a bill to tell white people, “When a black man comes to vote, don’t bother him." That bill was for white people. I know I can live anyplace I want to live. It is white people across this country who are incapable of allowing me to live where I want. You need a civil rights bill, not me."
Stokely Carmichael, setting shit straight and placing responsibility for the “race problem” squarely where it belongs.
The very language in regards to civil rights in this country is embedded in white supremacist ideology. How many of us have been duped into accepting the fallacious notion that whites have “given” blacks rights? The notion itself presupposes black inferiority while failing to acknowledge the root problem: white racism. Change the language, change your mind.
Pair with “Racism is the white people’s disease”. Ya’ll brought on the problems.
