"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This
how people miss the racial commentary of this song is still so astounding to me. it’s so clearly a fuck white beauty standards song.
most white people so drunk off whiteness, they don’t even get it.
who knew though…… by 2014, white people would “discover” twerking and convince themselves that jennifer lopez and other white bitches made booty a good thing to have. lol.
they still can’t admit that black women are beautiful. they will just keep magic wand selecting all of our features as beautiful, but not beautiful on us.
I keep explaining this to white folks.

Standing precariously on the ledge of his balcony, Rauluni’s plea for asylum is marked by the State’s rejection and
expulsion; he is then inserted within a regime of political death that leads to his literal death. Everything he says and does before his ontological death underscores the facticity of his political death: he speaks, but the officials cannot hear; he gestures, but they cannot see; he pleads, but to no effect. Rauluni is a politically dead subject before his fall and before his biological demise on impact with the ground. As a politically dead subject, he has no right to negotiation and he has already forfeited any claims to human rights. Human rights are the sole preserve of the politically ‘alive’ subjects who reside outside the razor wire.
In their moment of landfall and arrest on Australian soil, the refugees’ human rights are suspended and superseded, as they are forcefully ushered beyond the juridical category of ‘the human’ into the carceral confines of Australia’s immigration prisons, where they may be imprisoned indefinitely without trial. Justice Louis Joinet, the head of a United Nations delegation that examined conditions within Australia’s Refugee Detention Centres, declared: ‘Criminals were treated better than people fighting for asylum under Australia’s mandatory detention system.’
As Suvendrini Perera has argued, drawing on a term by Tony Birch, in the process of being categorised as ‘unauthorised’ arrivals, refugees are effectively ‘unpeopled: [they are] the ones whose human suffering may not be seen or recognised."

Josefa Raulini was a Fijian man held in Sydney’s Villawood detention centre who committed suicide by jumping off a balcony on September 20, 2010. He plead for asylum, fearing would be killed or tortured if returned to Fiji. The government chose to deport him.The serco guards attempted to use force when Josefa threatened to jump: they had apparently been given no suicide prevention training. They placed mattresses on he ground at the base of the building and told him to ‘jump’. He did. He did not survive. His nephew witnessed his this and believed he was still alive but was restrained and held down by guards when he attempted to go to his uncle.
He is one of the many asylum seekers who’ve died at the hands of our government (and at the hands of the collective indifference of white australians).(via insufficientmind)
