"Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process.

Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter what neighborhood he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, ‘No, where are you really from?’

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination."

Sonia Sotomayor, on why pretending that America is a colorblind, post-racial society does not make it so (via wocinsolidarity)

This is Sotomayor echoing the musings of Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama himself (among others) in the most ornamental possible way.

Referencing “race” as it relates to social equality is moot, at best, because it reduces a conversation about the differing cultural tenets that shape our world to an issue of demographic percentages.

In fact, one might argue that what’s really being said is: “It’s racist if I think I see too many White people.” And that is indicative of a much larger problem, no matter how eloquently one might dare to say it.

The contrast of the two dissimilar acts isn’t the only thing of note here. As the sign indicates, The Sex Pistols did play at The Longhorn Ballroom in Dallas on a January—the 10th of January, 1978 to be exact.
That night, Pistols bassist Sid Vicious taunted a woman in the crowd, who responded with a head-butt that brought the show to a grinding halt. While the hooligan Londoners were likely ill-informed about how Texans tend to handle themselves when provoked, tensions in the band (amplified by Sid’s heroin use) also didn’t help their cause.
The Pistols’ U.S. tour lasted about two weeks. Sid would be dead a year later.

i just want a boy who touches me distractedly

like sitting watching a movie and he just kinds of drags his fingers over your skin while watching and he doesn’t have a motive he’s not trying to tickle you or be sexual with you he’s just touching your skin and feeling the shape of your bones under that skin like it’s physically comforting for him to know that you’re there right under his fingertips

oh fuck i didnt know girls liked when i did this

Same here. I’ve sometimes thought that even the slightest affable, no-strings-attached touch might bother her. Of course, that’s likely because I’ve wasted a lot of time and energy on some real hardcore patronizing self-centered major league bi-ches. So there’s that.

"If you worship your enemy, you are defeated. If you adopt your enemy’s religion, you are enslaved. If you breed with your enemy, you are destroyed."

King Polydoros of Sparta (reigned 741–665 BC). King Leonidas, the most famous of all Spartan rulers, descended from the same dynasty and succeeded Polydoros 175 years later.

It seems any gains are beset by unforeseen hindrances that keep my fitness goals just out of reach. So I respect workout warriors like this because they definitely had to overcome—sometimes a little, oftentimes a lot—in order to reach their potential. Hopefully I will join their ranks one day.
