Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness
As are toiletries!
I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.
Cotton is best. Always cotton
Anonymous asked: People magazine put Lupita whatshername on the cover as the most beautiful woman. Politically correct just like the Oscar she received?
A magazine can put whoever they wish on the cover. Calling anybody the most beautiful woman is risky and very naive. She is very beautiful for a black woman but I doubt she is the most beautiful black woman out there.
It has nothing to do with political correctness. It’s just a magazine being silly. Not an award.
I dislike her beyond words but not everything she does is bad. As of late she is just a mindless, characterless puppet to the media.
"Beautiful for a black woman"….says the girl who looks like last weeks lasagna.
I wish I had time to unpackage all that that is involved with “For A Black Woman”, but I’m gonna walk that one off. I just hope that OP gets her life together. Tearing down Lupita… did that do anything for you? Lupita’s representation in a magazine… does that oppress you? SOMEONE THINKING SHE’S BEAUTIFUL… how does that impact your day? White people still “set the standard” of beauty in these parts. Calling this magazine’s decision “silly” and “nothing but political correctness” is MUCH MORE DAMAGING than I think you could wrap your mind around. But like I said, I’m gonna walk this one off.. because folks on Tumblr are going to drag you around enough. I’m not going to call you ugly. I’m not going to make fun of you. I am going hope you see the light that, just because your bigoted mind can’t see beauty where beauty is ABUNDANTLY prevelant, you don’t write off your impending dragging as “SJWs on the Attack”.
Oh… and mindless? She’s a MFA graduate from Yale. Get your shit together.
Fucking……. “for a black woman.” I feel sorry for you

This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
White people will spend 2 hours googling fan fics on Dr Who but expect us to explain racism to them in 30 seconds or less
Anonymous asked: I'm a white woman living in Japan with my husband and his family. Our children have access to a wonderful range of Japanese language children's books but almost all the English language titles friends and my family have sent from the USA are so focused on white little boys that it breaks my heart. My oldest son has gotten old enough to start asking why there are only white people, not people like him, are in the those few books... (con'd)
(Con’d)I would like to expand what we have with positive images of PoC instead of letting those books we own harm him any more. My question to you (and maybe your followers could help out too!), is do you know of any good picture books or children’s books in English that represent Japanese / Japanese diaspora positively and accurately?
Maybe other followers can chime in here, and I would also suggest the Asian-American section of this booklist: http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/how-choose-best-multicultural-books
