Do you feel vulnerable? You’re not alone. Don’t miss Brené Brown’s full talk on the power of vulnerability.

Relevant to my interests…

I got to see her speak live last year and she’s amazing. She gave life examples and “lessons” we’ve all heard a million times from a different perspective that made you really stop and think about things.

Tumblr HELP!

My Laptop is DYING! I need a replacement.  I want something portable, and it needs to have the number keypad on the side as well. I use it for home, but I do a lot of work from home, so I’ll be running Office probably as well.  What do you recommend?

"Shut up and go home, and maybe you can have justice"

Seems to be a common theme amoung white people on the comment section of the local newfeeds on Facebook.  Also, to me, is EXACTLY what racism is nowadays.

A person, who gets to enjoy priveledge in every aspect of life, everyday; is hatefully telling the oppressed to shut up and not be angry about an unarmed boy being killed by a police officer, and MAYBE something might happen.

Yesterday, I didn’t allow myself to read ANY comments.  It’s disgusting, and I don’t even know what to do.

The lead prosecutor’s mom, dad, brother, uncle & cousin all worked for St. Louis’ Police Dept & his dad was killed by a black guy. #ConflictOfInterest

I just signed, you should too.



One of the small quibbles (among many much larger quibbles) I have with the way this is unfolding in most of the media is that Ferguson is consistently referred to as a suburb of St. Louis.

Technically this is true: it’s outside the St. Louis city limits. But culturally speaking, most people from St. Louis would probably not think of it as a suburb.  It’s part of the County, which makes it more like an outer borough (which is not something you’d ever hear a St. Louisan say—they’d just say it’s in “North County.”).

Calling Ferguson a suburb of St. Louis is kind of like calling Brooklyn a Suburb of New York.

This has been a cultural lesson for you about St. Louis. Next week: toasted ravioli.

i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because: 

  1. i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live 
  2. most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person 
  3. im not a pissbaby

my white friends that have reblogged this give me life

4. Sometimes I am a shitty white person and the jokes remind me to FUCKIN STOP

KKK leaders headed to Sullivan, MO I am assuming to fuel the fire. This seems really bad. I feel sick right now…
