White people are so angry for no reason
"Our rights are all equal now" <— White people never cease to crank out gems such as this.
Make no mistake about it, NO ONE is criticizing you for what your ancestors did, we are criticizing you for what you all are doing now..

TUMBLR, I NEED YOUR HELP!
1 in 6 American women and 1 in 33 American men will face attempted or completed rape in their lifetime. We live in a culture that accepts this.
Rape culture is the normalization of rape, in which people are taught don’t get raped instead of don’t rape, in which we are taught that “no” really means “yes,” in which rape is something to laugh and joke around with friends about, in which victims are demonized and rapists glorified. A victim is put on trial rather than the rapist, and the rapist is supported by the community, by strangers, and even by prominent politicians, who talk of “legitimate rape” and “making mistakes” and how “boys will be boys” without ever mentioning the victim.
In a survey conducted of students from 53 high schools across New York State, only 5 mentioned learning about rape and consent in sexual education classes. Those who had little to no sexual education overall cited clothing, drinking, promiscuity, and flirting as the main causes of rape, rather than rapists themselves. Similarly, these respondents also stated that consent could properly be given by those who were underage, intoxicated, or had been coerced; they also tended to believe the harmful stereotype of rape occurring primarily by strangers late at night – an idea that leads to the invalidation of thousands of people’s experiences and the belief that if a rape did not happen in those circumstances, it didn’t happen it all. Only 78% stated that consent was something that was freely given by an individual of age who was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and had not been coerced.
This is what we are trying to change. Consent is mandatory, at all times, in all situations. Yet few people realize this or understand what it means: something that is freely and enthusiastically given by an individual who is of age and who has not been coerced or under the influence of drugs.
We want to combat this.
By signing this petition, you can help raise awareness for the importance and necessity of teaching about consent in schools and help to combat rape culture amongst teens. Please, sign it, spread it, share it, and most importantly, teach everyone you know about what consent is and why everyone needs to be aware of it.

- Hillary Clinton offers a statement on Michael Brown and Ferguson. 19 days later. Next she’ll offer her thoughts on Rodney King and Vietnam.
- Despite the despicable timing, Hillary Clinton’s remarks were actually on point. She critiqued the system and didn’t blame the victims.
- Rather than preaching unwarranted calm or drawing false racial equivalencies, Hillary Clinton put a spotlight on social injustice.
- Instead of attacking the protestors, Hillary Clinton rightly pointed to the frayed relationships between police and community.
- And, perhaps most importantly, Hillary Clinton addressed the elephants in the room: white privilege and institutional racism.
- In honesty, Hillary Clinton offered the type of commentary that many of us were quixotically expecting from President Obama.
- The only problem with Hillary Clinton’s comments is that they were cynically timed. She waited until the political stakes were much lower.
- Hillary Clinton’s statement reflects careful triangulation and calculation driven by political interest rather than genuine feeling.
now that i have your attention, remember that capitalism is killing our nation
