Here We Stand

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!

Across the United States, there are 556 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native nations. Each one has it’s own unique history and culture. American education has not bothered to tell us that Native people lived in peace and effectively governed themselves before the Europeans came along. American education has not informed us that Native Americans have been slighted ever since, not even being recognized as citizens (despite the fact that they were here first) until the 20th century. 

But we don’t have to push these facts aside. We can stop celebrating a man that began a genocide and a terrible theft of land and culture, and start celebrating Indigenous Peoples for their rich history and their equal contributions to society.

To all Indigenous Peoples out there: we’re glad you’re here!


We will stand with you in your continued battle to be recognized as legitimate human beings instead of the stereotypes perpetuated by Columbus and those that came after him.

Listen I don’t care what the Boruto manga says Naruto is everyones dad and he’s super invested. Shows up to all the academy PTA meetings. Sits in the front row to cheer on Inojin at the spelling bee. Has tea parties with Himawari and her stuffed animals. Hosts Sarada’s favorite book club every thursday night. Oh Shikadai fucked up? Shikamaru, Temari, and Naruto are very disappointed.

Hidden Figures Cast wins the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

Taraji P. Henson: Talk to me, God. Listen. This film is about unity. We stand here as proud actors thanking every member of this incredible guild for voting for us, for recognizing our hard work. But the shoulders of the women we stand on are three American heroes: Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson. Without them, we would not know how to reach the stars. These women did not complain about the problems, their circumstances, you know, the issues. We know what was going on in that era. They didn’t complain. They focused on solutions. Therefore, these brave women helped put men into space. We cannot forget the brave men that also worked with us. God rest his soul in peace, John Glenn. This story is of unity. This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins every time. Thank you so much for appreciating the work we’ve done. Thank you so much for appreciating these women — they are hidden figures no more. Thank you.

the ultimate ships challenge: [1/10] kisses: snow white & prince charming

What makes it even better, today our story starts anew.

Bison were hunted almost to extinction in the 19th century and were reduced to a few hundred by the mid-1880s. They were hunted for their skins, with the rest of the animal left behind to decay on the ground. Here we see a poacher standing on a pile of an estimate 100,000 Bison skulls.
