Weird Tumblr Themes

I'm Claudia. 21. NSFW. I blog about fatness and depression and anxiety and my life, which is a combination of the three. I'm white, cis, and I consider myself bisexual (but sexually fluid towards all people) If you need TW, message me and I'll do my best! Call me out.

lusitanoqueen said: How can I respond to people who get mad because POC get scholarships related to their race? A lot of my white friends are angry because according to them "white people have to work hard to get to college but POC (they usually use more derogatory terms though) get everything handed to them" and I don't know how to explain to them why they're wrong.

Well you can hit them with some facts

  • More Evidence That Colleges Are Giving Money to Those Who Need It Least Scholarships are more generous for wealthier families

  • this post is helpful so is this charts and information here image
  • "Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race." —  The Distribution of Grants and Scholarships by Race Source

  • Entire Archived “Affirmative Action” tag

  • Entire Affirmative Action Tag Discrediting That
    1. When some white college applicants wonder if they are not getting into competitive schools, because so many of the spaces go to minorities, they are connecting their individual experience up with a conception of the larger social structure… When you look at the data, you will realize that it is absolutely impossible for most college rejections to be due to affirmative action.

    • Hard Truths: Affirmative Action  — (racismschool)
    • Ten myths about affirmative action
    • "Why is it people always get so upset about Affirmative Action but not about legacies? For some reason we’re ok with the historically advantaged having a leg-up over the rest of us, but not the historically disenfranchise" — (bohemianarthouse)
    • Your friends are attributing a lack of merit to People of Color. They’re assuming we have no capability of earning anything and that we just get everything as undeserved handouts that are for no reason. They’re actually a direct reaction to very recent and still presently continuing active disenfranchising discriminatory racist legislation and entire systems and structures in unfair bias and benefit towards white people that have existed for centuries and are not being dismantled as years continue

    Where’s your friend’s complaint about that..? Where’s your friend’s complaint about how all the white people my dad’s age had unfair access to schools over Black people while Black people were fighting for civil rights legislation and had to leave school to protest to have their humanity recognized?

    Why isn’t your friend upset about my parents having dogs sicked on them by the police and having the Police commissioner drive through their neighborhood in a military tank to instill fear in Black people? Why isn’t your friend mad that my parents were the group of the first Black kids to go to their high schools and how much of an extreme unfair advantage that meant for the white students over my Black parents..?

    How do people forget history so quickly…?

    The breakdown of who gets scholarships are as follows:


    White: Scholarship Recipients-798,400 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$1,891 Million
    Black: Scholarship Recipients-129,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$345 Million
    Latino: Scholarship Recipients-103,900 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$236 Million
    Asian: Scholarship Recipients-52,800 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$186 Million
    American Indian: Scholarship Recipients-19,000 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$56 Million
    Native Hawaiian: Scholarship Recipients-6,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$30 Million
    Multi-Racial: Scholarship Recipients-40,200 Total Private Scholarship Funding-$156 Million

    So my question is, why are white people getting scholarships just for being white? Right after you answer that, please tell me why white people are getting MORE MONEY on their scholarships just for being white? Seems unfair. We have to stop this affirmative action. (Oh and just in case you’re all people who see a Tumblr post and REFUSE to see the source within that post, here is where those numbers came from: Bloop! Bloop!)

    • It’s so bizarre how when Affirmative Action is brought up, it more often then not ALWAYS leads to this specific dichotomy between the capable white person vs. an incapable minority - and it’s always this comparison. ( reverseracism )

excuse me, you identify as HETEROSEXUAL????? Uh. Don’t you know that word was MADE UP, by some German Journalist in the early 20th century in A LETTER????? I get you’re all trying to be “special snowflakes” but HETEROSEXUALITY. IS. NOT. REAL.

lolsob the notes for this post are full of people going “don’t you get all words are made up at some point!!!”. You’re so close to getting it… So close…

It’s on the verge of tragicomedy.

ted:

"And sometimes in class I might pause the intellectual-sounding flow to ask, ‘Yo! Why dese books neva be about my peoples?’ Yes, I have decided to treat all three of my languages as equals because I’m ‘articulate.’"

Jamila Lyiscott responds to the pseudo-compliment that she is “articulate” in her powerful spoken-word essay “Broken English” from a recent TEDSalon in New York City.

skelletonclique:

Reminder than “trans” and “man”/”woman” are separate words.

✗ - Transwoman

✗ - Transman

✓ - Trans woman

✓ - Trans man

You don’t say “blackwomen” or “tallmen.” Adjectives shouldn’t be attached to their nouns. Trans women and trans men are still women and men and by attaching the adjective to try and make a new word, you are othering them and making it appear as though they are “not really men/women.”
