White people in America are a trip… they exterminate the Native American and then try to dress just like them. What kind of necrophilia is that?
As we launch this initiative, we are making bold promise.
It is a promise — to today’s kindergartners all the way through to our high school seniors:
You now have the opportunity to attend two years of community or technical college completely tuition-free when you graduate from high school.
Cerrar los ojos no va a cambiar nada. No va a desaparecer simplemente porque usted no pueda ver lo que está pasando. De hecho, las cosas aún serán peor la próxima vez que los abra. Ese es el tipo de mundo en que vivimos. Mantenga los ojos bien abiertos. Sólo un cobarde cierra los ojos. Cerrar los ojos y tapar los oídos no hará que el tiempo se detenga.
When Black women try to establish themselves within the white world, there’s a cruel irony they often have to face. It’s okay if white people make use of Black English to spice up their phrases and seem “cool,” but if Black women want to be respected and taken seriously, they need to adhere carefully to Standard English in “white” settings. Although psycholinguists have established that Black English is a respectable and viable dialect, numerous women say that they are routinely diminished, discounted, or distrusted simply because of what they say and how they say it.
It’s not accidental at all that children’s films challenging sexism are ALWAYS set in the distant past and usually involve conflicts that are not relevant or particularly value challenging to today’s U.S. audience (corsets and otherwise constraining clothing, arranged marriages, etc). These plotlines often situate sexism as a problem the modern world has solved.

"These plotlines often situate sexism as a problem the modern world has solved.” Wow. This… is so important.
I just saw Frozen and liked some feministy things about it, but dammit, this sure is true.
