Every single word of this.
This is honestly such real shit. Every word of it. Second to last frame hits a lot (I really hardly ever considered the possibility that there was such thing as not-spectatoring).
this is the realest shit on this website
Everyone needs to read this and understand how fucking true every word of it is. This was my entire life for over 30 years. That is depressing to think about now
A college student from Queens got more than he bargained for when he splurged on a $350 designer belt at Barneys â when a clerk had him cuffed apparently thinking the black teen couldn’t afford the pricey purchase, even though he had paid for it, a new lawsuit alleges. “His only crime was being a young black man,” his attorney Michael Palillo, told the Post.curated by Nubian Drifter
Dude prolly had his receipts and the bag, and everything.
And he STILL GOT CUFFED
and people wonder why Black folks don’t trust any kinda system
They stopped him and asked, “how a young Black man such as himself could afford to purchase such an expensive belt?” They KNEW he bought it. They just didn’t believe he used his own money. How could he, a young Black man, afford a $350 belt. Aren’t they all jobless and lazy? He showed them the receipt. He even presented his ID and debit card. Security insisted it was all fake. Yes, even the receipt from their own cotdambed store. Because as we all know the only way Black people can have money is if we stole it from some innocent hard-working White person, right?
This is why racist stereotypes are harmful. Because they have real-life consequences for POC.
bolding for emphasis
I hope he’s suing them for every penny they’re worth.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK
Have you ever stood in a line for WIC? PREGNANT WOMEN WILL WAIT AS LONG AS SIX HOURS with noisy toddlers to get their coupons for free proteins like cheese and dry beans. DRY BEANS. They can’t otherwise afford this necessary food to meet their monthly protein requirement to have healthy babies.
Do people honestly have any idea what sort of a problem food is in this country and how many children don’t have regular access to healthy meals? Do they know how many pregnant women don’t get the proper nutrition?
Fuck you Republicans.
I’m not even tagging these posts “politics.” This is basic humanity; it’s not me being a liberal—it’s me being a decent human and these congresstwits being INHUMAN.
When I tried to explain this to my friend in Canada she assumed I was making this up, because no one could be that cartoonishly evil.
THIS is why Jon and Stephen are more credible than any other news report, in my opinion…..
So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
My dream is to do something like that for someone - someday
