Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.

butchimightbe:

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

white people were all for politics until black people got involved, now they hate political correctness.

When watching a show I don’t think ‘Well politically correctly there should be two more minorities’

I’m thinking ‘This is suffocating, this isn’t what life is like, why do i not exist, why do my friends not exist, what the fuck is with this idealisation of one type of person?’

If you genuinely want to begin a romantic relationship with a black woman, do yourself a favor. NEVER utter these words.

i liked a white guy & he said “yeah, i’d date a black girl”

i told an this asian girl who was my friend at the time what he said and she said “it’s because he’s gay and black women are so masculine”

millions of real existing people fall in love with straight men. what the fuck

im still thinking about this. they dont just befriend and hang out with straight men, they get emotional about them. they think ‘this person is the best thing that ever happened to me’. i think there was a time when this phenomenon made sense to me but now it does not.

I don’t even know why I’m still into men tbh.

im right there with u like it goes against all the logic

I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations.

Feminism doesn’t mean female corporate power or a woman President; it means no corporate power and no Presidents… Challenging sexism means challenging all hierarchy —economic, political, and personal. And that means an anarcha-feminist revolution. Peggy Kornegger (via inclusivestreetstyle)

The black power movment failed black women…

radicalmenofcolor:

Black men trying to seek equality with white men and/or or outdo white men at their own games.

And in the process, either make our relationships some mirror to or gross exaggeration of white American cultural tropes and gender norms.
More control, more criticism, more pressure on black women.

If you talk about black feminists as “race traitors” without talking about THIS sh*t, then you’re some piece of work.

navigatethestream:

the idea that black folks need prominent black male music artists to acknowledge the oppression black people face circles back to severely flawed models of movement building that comes out of black history 

in both instances we’re relying on black men to lead or speak for our communities and only when they’ve attained the power, money, status, recognition necessary to be in that position to make the impact we perceive they can.

and yet when it finally happens and they actively choose not to, instead opting to say things many of us don’t agree with, we collectively act disappointed, ask ourselves how this happened, and then go back to waiting for another black man to “lead us once again” or “speak for us once again” 

its one thing for flawed notions of black leadership to pervade our social justice and organizing strategies 

its a whole other ball of wax to let it seep into pop culture 

because people latch on to that shit

i mean think about it

think about how many white liberals will make fun of hermain cain and other black republicans because in their minds why would a black person supposedly go against their own self interests by joining the republican party 

but then subsequently don’t bat an eyelash when people like Pharrell talk about the New Black, a concept that is inherently post-racial. will go so far to endorse it and defend it like nothing is wrong

cycles of politics help people like Hermain Cain fade into obscurity. conservatives of color are recycled more times than coke bottles by their political parties because even the political analysis with no anti-oppression praxis can usually poke holes in their logic, and once that happens, once they fall out of public favor and the jokes become stale, the party drops them and moves on to the next hopeful show pony 

but pop culture operates on a different cycle where the folks saying shit we don’t want them to say are given more air time. collective memory functions differently in a way that keeps the momentum going 

so no matter how much people point out the fuckery of Pharrell, Kanye, Lupe, Nas, Russell Simmons, whoever, people will hardly notice or not even care because they’ve become hit makers. they’re in the public eye purely for their entertainment value, for the ratings they draw, for the revenue. and in many respects they become untouchable by their own communities. at that point the only people who have the power to knock them down are the white people who put them there in the first place 

and why would they ever want to knock down a person who says "The new black doesn’t blame other races for our issues. The new black dreams and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation, it’s a mentality.It’s either going to work for you or it’s going to work against you and you’ve got to pick which side you’re gonna be on. You choose to be on." 

why would white supremacy want to knock down the person who takes “mind over matter” and fuses it with “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” 

its a mantra that’s pure gold in an era that considers itself “post-racial”
