A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community.
…..I’m so afraid for this baby. I wonder how they are treating her considering they didn’t want a black child to begin with

if y’all aren’t including Jewish people in your social justice then you’re doing a shitty job.
if y’all are actively excluding Jewish people in your social justice then you probably shouldn’t call your activism that.
today i met a christian guy who tries to follow the rules of the bible really good and i asked him if he is against gays because of Leviticus 20:13 and he told me no, he doesn’t because of Matthew 7
and he added that he would never judge anybody on their beliefs or way of living because only god can judge the people
this guy man
That would be *actual* Christianity for you.
This is true Christianity people just saying
this is a war-cry from 60 years ago that is still being shouted today.

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.
Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.
It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
The 90s were a time of PEAK makeup looks for black women. I’m not here for airbrushed beauty blogger eyebrows and super contoured noses tbh. Why aren’t we aiming for Laura Winslow and Myra here? Why aren’t we trying to look like we should be in a Foxy Brown or En Vogue video? The maroon matte lip is powerful.
Myraaaaaa 😍😍😍😍 RIP 🙏
