"I’ve got one of those bucket lists. I want to drive a race car. I wanted to join the Air Force, but that was just so I could jump out of an airplane, with a parachute— but not from too high though. Just medium high. I also want to go up in a balloon, because that looks fun. And also I want to do that thing where you’re holding onto that kite-looking-thing while it goes through the air. Then I want to catch one of those big fish with the thing coming out of its nose, where they have to strap you to a chair so you can reel it in. My friend says I’m too old for that, but I think I can do it."

BECAUSE Mexican mass culture is antiblack and colourist as fuck (just look at telenovelas). So much so that Afromexicans in Mexico City are thought of as “costeños” and “just really dark” erasing of their African identity (this I know from growing up there) and mexican people whose indigenous features are more visible, continue to be discriminated. 
Whites/white-passing Mexicans are mainly middle/high class almost all of the time. Most of our barrios have been historically poor, where less-white looking Mexicans were relegated to. 
Basically same shit, different country

don’t romanticize basic rights 
it’s not attractive that a man is a feminist 
it’s not sexy that a man finally realizes the prejudice against women and how very oppressed women are 
it’s common sense

We’re celebrating Indigenous People’s Day in affirmation of what should be self-evident: much of what we know and enjoy has been made possible by atrocities committed against others. In order to truly move forward, we must acknowledge these crimes and make whatever reparations are possible.
Christopher Columbus’ “discovery” of America was followed by the genocide and enslavement of tens of millions of native people. His actions led to the transatlantic slave trade and centuries of violence and discrimination towards indigenous people. Yet we celebrate him as an American hero.  
We applaud Seattle and Minneapolis in their recent shift away from Columbus Day, as well as Berkeley for first making the change in the early nineties. It is our hope that these are the first of many. Please join us in celebrating Indigenous People’s Day and moving towards a more honest, inclusive future.

Right now, people in Liberia – and other countries affected by Ebola – need more aid and more medical staff.
That’s why – as well as providing life-saving kit – we’ve joined a bunch of charities calling on governments worldwide to support health volunteers keen to join the fight against Ebola.
The UK Government’s already encouraged NHS staff to volunteer. SHARE this if you believe more countries should follow suit.
