Really bad cramps. Can’t move. Help me.
Can someone find the fucks I used to give so I can apply them to this semester?
I put things in my calender so I don’t double book myself.
What do I end up doing?
Double booking myself.
I could cry.
Do we all face stereotypes, of course. The question is, do all stereotypes carry the same weight ?
they don’t hear you though
right? “white girls like starbucks”, “white people all have money”, etc. are not harmful, oppressive, life-ruining stereotypes and the fact they argue to make that comparison is indicative of white privilege itself.
Here’s the difference:
Black people are criminals: Results —->Renisha McBride shot in the face asking for help, Trayvon Martin shot just for walking down the street, Amadou Diallo, Rekia Boyd etc.
Latinos are illegal immigrants: Results ——> innocent people being deported, families being split up, students being kicked out of school, etc.
White people are bad dancers: Results—-> Folks laugh and move on.
The end results are what determine whether or not a stereotype is harmful.
Let’s not say being murdered or having your family split up is the same as someone laughing for two seconds and moving on. Let’s not do that.
I struggle between getting to be at 10 pm every night because I’m tired and know that a bedtime is best for my health and working late into the night to get all my work down because if I pull all-nighters now, I won’t later on in my life.
