1. the majority of my drive is that i actually want to make a different and a small part is because i want a certain scholarship that likes when people do these kinda things and i would like them to see that what im doing is useful to society….

     
  2. As for the group: I’m already highjacking the brain of one of my friends here to help me flesh it out + I’m most likely meeting up with another friend this friday who has experience running events (aka getting people to show up) and this wednesday I’m hanging with a friend who’s mom does social work so she may have some useful connections….

    literally in the span of a week my life became “how can i shoehorn myself into peoples lives” game

It just seems like double standards to me. Shouldn't fashion be available for whoever wants express themselves in whatever way they choose?

    lapinennoir:

    black--lamb:

    why is it ok for white people to define the standards of beauty, but whenever a black women even begins to love her natural hair it’s considered “exclusive” or “cocky”?

    why is it called “ghetto” or “ratchet” whenever i embrace styles natural to my culture but it’s “classy” and “alternative” when a white girl in Vogue does it?

    why is “being black” a phase for white people (who then can always go back to being white again and still receive the benefits of their privilege) but it’s something i need to tone down in order to get a job?

    why is it that i have/still get denied access into public places because of my natural hair and skin color?

    why is it that a black boy with a hoodie is considered “dangerous” when a white boy with a gun is called “emotionally unstable”?

    why is it that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust or Pearl Harbor but i’m supposed to get over the effects of slavery?

    why is it ok for white people to talk about their 1/3 German, 1/4 French, etc roots, but the rest of us are “immigrants” who need to “go back where we came from”?

    why is it that Ebola has been killing brown people for years, but it’s suddenly curable when someone with white skin contracts it?

    basically white people will spend so much time worried about stupid shit like why they cant use other cultures as fashion or why they cant say the n word…

    So go ahead and rock your box braids..nobody is stopping you..the rest of us will be busy dodging the system of oppression that’s forced upon us every single day…It just seems like double standards to me. 

    but i mean shouldn’t basic human rights be available for everyone???

    Everything.
