white people will get worked up about a dog being pinned down by a cop pig bastard but scroll past 40 photos of cop pig bastards doing the same shit and worse to people of color and be like “but not all cops are bad”
Many Richmond public schools are in a state of embarrassing disrepair. Many of our buildings are aged but some are worse off than others.
Carver Elementary School has a rodent infestation.
At Fairfield Court Elementary School a ceiling tile fell on a student.
The ceilings at Thompson Middle School leak tar tainted water.
Armstrong High School has been infiltrated by both rodents and snakes.
These conditions continue to worsen as time passes and are simply disregarded by school officials, City Hall, the mayor, and many others. Funds could be allocated to repair our dilapidated schools (as was done for the Redskins training camp) if those in charge saw it as a priority. Instead however, the officials of Richmond brush off the needs of RPS students. We are not their priority. They fail to see the value in our education or even our general well-being. They must be reminded of our numbers so that they may see our value.
Join walk out on April 28, 2014. Help us show our city the faces of those they neglect.
**For students of Open High School we will walk out of class at 8:30 and walk together to city hall. If you do not attend Open please meet us in front of city hall at 9:00 for the protest. Feel free to bing posters or signs but remember this is a peaceful protest!
today has been such a stressful and sad day that my back is flaring up extra hard to remind me that chronic pain is also something i have to deal with today

i’m deeply uncomfortable with all men who try to convince me to think something other than what i feel about something that is informed by my lived experiences and trauma.
if you believe that your work as a white anti-racist is to simply prove how unlike other white racists you are, you are totally wrong and need to re-evaluate some things

do you like this photo? do you believe that all people should be able to access reproductive health tools such as abortion when they seek it? especially when they are poor? a single parent? not wanting to carry their pregnancy?
share this hot photo and make a donation to the Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project, an abortion fund providing services to those who seek them in the state of Virginia!!!
RRFP is still ~$25000 from its goal this year that makes up their annual budget and makes it possible for them to provide monies for abortions!!
look at these photos!

WE ARE ACTUALLY THE CUTEST
i feel like i used to have such creative hair. i’m at such a standstill right now and it’s really upsetting me because i could just keep shaving off all of my hair but i actually *want* long hair right now, the in between is just very blech.
but i have this strip in the back i’m sure i’m gonna get rid of. like it’s got to go because i look like a douchebag.
wait is that a thing
yes! i’ve had ppl i’ve been w/ tell me this and i’m just like… wait, who did you just fuck just now?????
i’m really, genuinely switchy when it comes to sex and i think i’m really good at being told what to do and initiating when i want to/am asked to. but i still identify strongly with being a bottom because it’s important for me not to feel bad about wanting to be submissive - especially when i have a lot of trauma around being forced into submission.
i hope the fuckers who say that bottoms don’t care about their partners’ desires and pleasures never get laid again because this bottom does not care about y’all
