the-movemnt:You may have seen this comic floating around. It’s by artist Marie-Shirine Yener who created it after hearing numerous stories from friends about enduring anti-Muslim harassment in France. Yener also became more sensitive to injustice after being ridiculed for another aspect of her identity.
ablackwomansurvivingrape:the-movemnt:When Pretoria Girls High School in Pretoria, South Africa, put restrictions on how women could wear their hair, they probably didn’t expect this response. But the students are not taking these covert racial tactics lightly.
smallswingshoes:nativepeopleproblems:astrape:nativepeopleproblems:This isn’t an isolated insolent. A year or so ago I noticed Franchesca reblogging from GodGazi (sp?) and gently messaged her explaining why he’s violently antisemitic and would she please not reblog from him anymore. She deleted her reblog, but never answered the ask, privately or publically. At the time I didn’t think much of it but as others have said, this isn’t the first time she’s used the Holocaust as a rhetorical device. It’s at the point where I’m not comfortable supporting her anymore, which is really disappointing for me, but I don’t feel like her circle is a safe environment for me and my mom’s family.
birdmoosegirl:legally-bitchtastic:the-movemnt:where is the lie? (x) Please stop using the Holocaust as a rhetorical device. Stop playing Oppression Olympics with it. Stop lying about how everyone takes the Holocaust so seriously unlike [x tragedy]. It’s antisemitic and anti-Romani and really fucking old.
the-movemnt:we sat down with @chescaleigh to talk about The Nightly Show being canceled, the importance of comedy that tackles real issues and her hilarious viral video “Shit White Girls Say to Black Girls.”
oddhour:for the self-conscious beginner: No one makes great things until the world intimately knows their mediocrity. Don’t think of your writing as terrible; think of it as preparing to contribute something great.
profeminist:Salon: What I’ve found remarkable about Larry Wilmore, just as a viewer – and I don’t mean just with “The Nightly Show,” I’m also referring his work on “Black-ish” and especially with Issa Rae – is that I have not seen a producer promote women of color as prominently as he has.
