TheGreatWhiteCockroach

“A little primer on how to be a good ally:

First, DON’T demand that those you are supporting produce proof of the inequality they are working to resist.

DO recognize that the shield of your privilege may blind you to the experience of others’ injustice.

DON’T offer up your relationship with a member of the marginalized group as evidence of your understanding.

DO be open to learning and expanding your consciousness by listening more and talking less.

DON’T see yourself as the Kevin Costner in “Dances with Wolves” or the Tom Cruise in “The Last Samurai.” You are NOT the savior riding to the rescue on a white horse. DO notice that you are joining a group of people who are already working to save themselves.

DO realize that the only requirement you need to enter ally-ship is a commitment to justice and human equality.

”—Melissa Harris-Perry (The MHP Show for March 30, 2013)

hagiographiies:

padarnaa1aat:

This white couple from Australia had twins via surrogacy (in Thailand) and, upon finding out that one of them had Down Syndrome and a myriad of health problems, abandoned him there. They travelled back home with only the other twin and haven’t even fully paid the surrogate, who was left to take care of the baby.

White people have no fucking souls, truly. 

this is such fucking evil shit, truly.

SAW THIS ON THE (NHK WORLD) NEWS, WAS SO UPSET. THIS WOMAN IS TAKING CARE OF THE TWIN ALONG WITH HER OTHER CHILDREN AND WAS SO HURT THAT THEY COULD SPLIT THE BABIES UP LIKE THAT. WHITE AUSTRALIANS = ACTUAL HUMAN GARBAGE.
