It’s really hard to say that nothing will happen. Remember, Nixon was super popular. Beginning impeachment hearings changed that. Now, obviously, today’s GOP are a bunch of shitstains, so there is the possibility that they won’t do anything, but it’s not 100%.
I second your take. I’m also a white woman and have noticed in both others and at times myself saying that I want everyone to be treated fairly then getting annoyed or frustrated when they are/I am, in fact, treated fairly. Systems that seem equitable but really benefit you because of race can make even the most…
White privilege is intoxicating. I am half Mexican and fiercely identify as Latina. I present as white. My sister looks a bit more ethnic (usually mistaken for Persian). I often have to check myself about my view of the world based on how I am treated. As an example, I was telling my sister and husband (AfAm/…
“I don’t see color” secretly means “I don’t mind being around POC, as long as I don’t lose my place at the front of lines.”
Don’t blame you. I’m a white woman with a POc husband and friends from diverse backgrounds back home, now living in Toronto (I think I read 60% of us are immigrants in this city). I’d like to think i’m Cool and with it but it’s so easy to have a blind spot when it comes to yourself. The UK is wrestling with this right…
May I just say how relatable I find all of their tossed up messy buns?
I think I am now on my 3rd cold in two weeks, so hopefully this one does not land me in the hospital like cold #2. On the plus side, I’m still on antibiotics for the sinus infection from cold #1, so presumably I won’t get a second one.
I finally got to sprawl out in my own bed and I woke up with a crick in my neck. I’m not sleepy but I’m having trouble getting started today.
Came in to work a half hour ago, only to discover that the software I use for 95% of my job is down. So.......internets it is!
That’s exactly what happened during a segment on Marriane Williamson, everyone agreed with her and she kept talking over people and acting indignant.
I think #3 is for all the dumb-ass parkers that come after you. The world is rife with people who park on the line, over the line, hanging half out of the space, across two spaces and sometimes in a spot that isn't even a parking space. I park defensively, planning my exit strategy on arrival.
I think the addendum to that rule would probably be any lonely person is susceptible to scams and cults. Our need to belong is strong, and if you don’t have a good support network in place of friends and/or family, then you could very easily fall prey.
$5,700? I could have told those people all of those things for half that price.
After the NVXIUM, or however it’s spelled, scandal broke, I read an article where a psychologist says everyone is vulnerable to scams and cults because of our need to belong. It’s just a matter of which one you would fall for.
It’s time for my pre-vacation/seasonal changing of the hair!
I like really basic games that I can play while I actually focus on podcasts, so I play mah jong and sudoku. Prollllly not what you’re looking for, lol.
I feel like she kind of got pushed into making a pride anthem to demonstrate her allyship, but she’s also probably not the best person to write one. The lyrics are clumsy for sure, and the message isn’t exactly revolutionary. But I think the sentiment is probably sincere and I love the representation in the video,…
