The Whitest Kids U’ Know x

I really spent four years in the states thinking this couldn’t possibly be a real thing but then I graduated and everyone knew the pledge of allegiance PERFECTLY and then I realized how true this gifset really is. If you say something enough as a kid, it’ll never leave you. The thing tho, is that normally, kids know lullabies, and songs. Not a poem about mindless patriotism.

REBLOGGING FOR ALL THE FUCKING TIMES I GOT IN TROUBLE, MAINLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, FOR NOT SAYING THE WEAK ASS PLEDGE!

SAME! I used to “baaaaaaa” during the pledge in middle school lol

I also refused to say the pledge starting in middle school. I always got in so much trouble even though i respectfully stood and stayed silent. I wasnt disruptive or anything.

I didn’t get in trouble per-say, but back in high school I refused to do the pledge and got some pretty dirty looks from my teacher.

In the fourth grade, I sat behind a black boy who crossed his fingers behind his back when we said the Pledge. Back then, I didn’t understand why. Other than that one boy, I, and no one else I knew, ever,
ever questioned the Pledge, not even to ask why we did it. In hindsight, that’s actually pretty damn scary.

They finally made it a thing where we can’t be punished for not saying the Pledge. I haven’t even stood up for the damn thing in six years. People give me funny looks and I just think to myself, “At least I’m not the one mindlessly following a country that can’t even get its own shit together before policing the rest of the world.”

I’d always say the version from “Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson.”
http://www.deceptology.com/2012/01/how-to-fake-pledge-of-allegiance.html No one caught on until high school, and my law teacher heard me. She laughed so hard she had to sit down. She didn’t make us say it again after that.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film without warning of what’s in it. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

"There are so many possibilities for POC movies, princesses, and characters. Since there are already so many white characters, I hope that Disney stays focused on POC for a while. Like, no more white princesses for a good 50 years. I really hope to see a Japanese or an Egyptian princess one day"

Tf??? Why did the question describe slave labor like that??? That’s so fucking disrespectful.

Reasons why I refuse to teach in a school with a forced curriculum…all public and private schools
I am here for homeschooling and non profit schools
As a history teacher I will be forced to sugar coat the bullshit that White folks did
The explorers, the colonizers, the pilgrims, the founding fathers, the KISS MY ASS. 
I REFUSE to teach my students that BS.

I really loved the little mermaid as a kid growing up so I had the warped perception you became a mermaid when you entered the water ahaha. This is me learning to swim with my cousin! This piece is for a gallery show at work.

Seasame Street: Color Of Me

"My skin it is a dark dark brow, it’s like a chestnut horse
Horses are so beautiful, you know that’s true of course
So brown’s beautiful and I’m beautiful, as beautiful as can be
I love my skin, love my brown skin, dark brown, that’s the color of me”
