If you wear a hijab, niqab or even burqa, don’t expect me to take you seriously if you tell me how free and liberated you are.

"I’m going to withhold giving you the respect you deserve because I disagree your choice of dress, most likely because I’m an ethnocentrist, an Islamophobe, and an imperialist."

Anonymous asked: White mother Catalina Clouser got high, left her baby on top of her car, took a drive and the baby fell off. She ended up getting probation. Black mother Shanesha Taylor left her two kids in her car while she went to a job interview and is being charged with child abuse. Both cases were in Arizona and we all know how wonderful Arizona is when it comes to civil rights. My (now EX) friend says that Catalina's case is irrelevant and that Shanesha's punishment fits the crime. Is he a racist?

Of course he’s fucking racist, and fuck everyone for pretending this racist-ass legal system is even remotely fair.

Anonymous asked: Will the U.S. dollar officially collapse on July 1, 2014 and H.R. 2847 will go into effect? Then America will be living under the imposition of martial law by the federal government? WHAT'S HAPPENING???

edwardspoonhands:

HR 2847 puts regulations on offshore banking tax loopholes. People who have lots of money believe that, because rich people and large companies NEED tax loopholes in order to feed their private planes…all of them will run screaming from America as soon as it’s enacted, thus destroying the entire American economy. 

Actually they don’t believe this, they just want everyone to think that closing down their tax shelters will destroy the economy so we stop doing it. 

The American economy does not depend on offshore tax shelters, we’re going to be fine.

Eh, I don’t like when people be like “black girls watch out cause white girls getting booty these days” cause to a black girl’s ears it kinda sounds like “watch out because your only value is your fetishized body and once that’s gone you’ll truly be worthless”
