As a White person
As a white person I will recognize my privilege that I received at birth. I will stand up when I see others are being wronged because I am in the position, and I will use my privilege to bring other’s oppression into the light.
As a White person I will not apologize for someone else’s wrong doings in history and I will not take responsibility for another persons racism.
As a white person I will stand up for humanity
"on behalf of all white people i apologize for—-"
Shut the fuck up you do not speak for me or anyone else.
Go lick the buttholes of other whites with guilt instead of trying to speak over entire races of people.
This. This so much. Get that shit out of here.
All over the ‘white people’ tag i keep seeing black people claiming white people sold them into slavery first… get a little educated guys. Slavery began in Africa. Your own people sold your ancestors into slavery TO the Europeans and other people of other races. White people didn’t just come over and take ya’lls ancestors away and then sell them to slavery. I’m not saying it’s right,but I’m saying it didn’t start where ya’ll keep saying it did. White people are not %100 to blame. Watch the video.
93% of Black victims are killed by Blacks (BJS, 2011)
I’ll just leave this here. food for thought.
Apparently in America I’m not considered white. I’m considered Albanian or European. Just wow. What even is white in America?
Apparently I’m not either. I had a woman of color ask me if I was white one time. I said last time I checked I am. I’m half Irish & German. She said ‘Oh that’s why. You don’t look white’. I wasn’t sure if she was being serious or if she was playing with me.O.o
Nobody is probably going to read this shit and if they do they’re probably going to be offended about something, but I’m gonna put it up here anyway.
I was just on the ‘white people’ tag and the only thing I can say is what. the. fuck. As a white person let me just say it’s tragic what happened to mike brown. I feel sorry for the situation in general. I feel for his family. I however am not going to sit here and claim I hate my own race. I’m not going to apologize or say I love black people just so they’ll forgive me. Why? Because to apologize is to admit to something I never did or had any part of. I have no guilt because I did nothing wrong. If you didn’t take part in slavery, actively beat, bully or kill a black person, or participate in any sort of action that oppresses black people, then don’t sit there putting down your own fucking race or try to get rid of whatever fuckin guilt you seem to have. You’re not helping a damn thing when you do that.
Do you think black people really want nor care for you hating on yourself or your race because you feel sorry for them? Nope. Actions speak louder then words. If you really care about the racism, oppression, and other such things then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Do something to actively help them by spreading awareness and by teaching with knowledge. It’s the same as with anything else. Women didn’t get their rights, black people didn’t get their rights, and the LGBT community isn’t getting it’s rights and stopping the oppression by sitting by and doing absolutely nothing but feeling sorry for people and talking a bunch of shit. That serves absolutely NOBODY. So, if you genuinely give a shit about what’s happening to these people then actively do something about it instead of sitting there talking a bunch of shit about how sorry you feel and about your own people.
Also, those who seem to believe racism isn’t a thing amongst anybody, you’re so dead wrong. There is racism all around the world towards other people and towards our own people every. single. day. So to sit there and act like racism isn’t a thing is to be blind. It is definitely very real and very much happening. However, what I will say is that for black people to sit and act like there’s no such a thing as racism against white people just as there is white people against black people is equally as wrong and makes them just as blind.
I can personally say that I’ve been racially discriminated against and harassed by black people, intimidated by black people, almost killed by a black girl, physically harmed by a black boy, and had black men make me fear for my own life. There’s probably going to be a black person who’s gonna say ‘oh that’s just some rich privileged white girl crying racist’. Yeah, well I’m here to say I’m not by any stretch of the imagination. I grew up as a white female in a predominantly black and Hispanic area in Mississippi going to a underfunded predominantly black and Hispanic school and my family was working poor. Nobody gave a shit about me when a black girl almost backed me off of a hill because other black students told her I stole her purse. I didn’t do it because I didn’t even know who she was nor did I carry a purse. I’m not saying this because I want anyone to feel sorry for me, but I’m saying it to make the point that racism towards whites from the black community is very real just as the reverse is also real.
So, while people are sitting here blaming each other and calling each other racists and shit, neither side is any better. Two wrongs don’t make a right. In this day and age unity and equality should be an actual thing, not just something people keep sitting around bitching about and not making an action to actually do. United we stand, divided we fall.

Looking at apartments for school today, checking out full sail tomorrow
My husband goes to full sail and I might be transferring there myself. We live in one of the apartments right down the street from campus. If you want to know about any of the apartments I suggest trying to pick up a housing guide in building 3-F. It will tell you what all of the apartments are and what they’re going for. Good luck!
I feel like my heart could drop out of my chest at any moment. I have been going to this college online for my bachelors in Criminal Justice. I’m doing so well and I haven’t failed a single class. I have a 3.0 GPA. So, then why don’t I feel happy? Why don’t I feel satisfied? Everyone is so happy for me and I’m not really happy for myself. Some of it I think has to do with the fact that I’m having a hard time with a couple of instructors. The other thing that I think it is, is that I know I set an unrealistic expectation in thinking that I was going to try the Criminal Justice route again. It also hit me kinda hard in the beginning when I had made a comment about how I was going to go about getting my degrees for the field I want to be in, and they said it didn’t make sense. When I think about it I guess it really doesn’t. I guess I’m also realizing that becoming a behavior analyst is just not realistic when I really look at it. I love the law and what it stands for,but I don’t think it’s me. I think it’s something I feel more motivated to watch on TV then to actually become a part of. I don’t feel this over whelming passion or motivation that a lot of people talk about having when they’ve found something that they’re passionate about doing. I thought I did, but I’m realizing that I really don’t. I also don’t think the online thing is really working for me. I knew I was not that kind of student but I guess I thought if I tried then I nor anyone else could say I didn’t.
I think the one thing that does fit me and that I’ve always held interest in is web design. I am self taught and always motivated to sit for hours if I have to, to learn something pertaining to that. My parents and other people always said I had talent in that particular thing. So, maybe that’s where I’m meant to go? Maybe that’s what I’m meant to do. I’m looking into Full Sail now. I made the phone call and if I can transfer and work out the financial aid aspect then I may very well be going to Full Sail. We’ll see.
How I feel right now being in my 5th week of English Comp. I’m so done with it.
I’m about .2 from flipping my bitch switch with all this Michael Brown stuff. Look, that cop shot that boy cold. That cop had NO business shooting that boy that many times. It was overkill from the start. I give not a single fuck in this world how you slice it,it was wrong. That man should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for what he did to Michael Brown. I’ve seen men receive less punishment for molestation and rape then this boy got for stealing a stupid swisher sweet. IF that’s even the case. Because, from what I’ve seen and read the cop didn’t even know about the theft he committed before he gunned him down. So, the man is guilty and should be dealt with as such.
However, I am gonna have to ask all those people who keep saying ’ white people’ this and ‘white people’ that to fucking swerve. Thanks. Because just like not every person of color is the same, not all of us white people are the same. Some of us actually have some fucking common sense enough to know that regardless of a mans color right is right and wrong is wrong. PERIOD. We don’t go with the damn flock just because they share the same skin tone. So if you could please put your generalizations back in your pocket then that would be great. Thanks.

Unfortunately many times.
I want to kiss you. I want to take your face in my hands and pull your lips to mine. I want to push in to your body with so much passion that it leaves you breathless. I want to taste you. I want to run my hands through the back of your hair and down to your waist. I want to feel your heartbeat against mine. I want to overwhelm you with my kiss. I want to lightly bite your lip after pressing against it. Soft. Hard. Back to soft. Back to hard. I want to feel you smile against my lips. I want to feel your skin beneath my fingertips. I want to kiss you with such intensity that once we finish, you’re left gasping, eyes closed, lips still moving in rhythm. I want to show you how much I want you.
Every day of my life.
