    Never not reblog

    One thing that always bothered me about that picture of mulan, more than the obvious artifice which is pretty out of character, is the colour of her outfit. The general consensus seems to be that mulan took place in the Northern Wei dynasty, but during the Tang Dynasty which preceded it, the colour yellow, especially bright yellow, had become the exclusive domain of the Emperor. And in those times disrespect to the Emperor could cost you your head at best and the lives of you and your entire family at worst. So, y know, maybe don’t put her in yellow clothes.

    well this is horrifying

    But people still try to write off racial income inequality as a myth? Because I’m pretty fucking sure this speaks volumes. This is a micro version of the way the government operates. This is a small scale example of the ways in which institutionalized racism operates and is upheld.

  5. I feel like I confuse the hell out of people when I need to go be a recluse for a bit and write or think. I’m an extrovert, yes, but I can’t even think with all this figurative and unfigurative noise, goshdarnit!

    I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:

    - White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.

    - Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 

    - Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.

    - African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.

    - Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 

    - White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.

    White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
