i am ashamed to be white

if Hamilton had come out during the Glee Era, this is what the episode basically would be

- Opening scene: ND in the classroom talking among themselves. Schue walks in wearing full period costume. Everyone is confused and a little ashamed. Schue tells them he’s discovered they’re all failing history, and one of them tells him history is just SO BORING. 

 - cut to a scene of somehow all the kids in the same class in various stages of unconsciousness while a Professor Binns type teacher drones on about the war of 1812. 

- Schue assures them history is TOTALLY COOL, informs them about Hamilton, tries to white rap his way through either Guns and Ships or Yorktown. Santana makes that “why am I surrounded by white fools” face that she always makes. Hamilton is the assignment this week, even though COMPETITION looms in the future, but when have they ever actually practiced before the week of? 

- Blaine has been super friendly with some guy from Dalton or from Hairgellers Anonymous or something, is constantly liking his posts on FB. Kurt sings “Burn” over a montage of Blaine ignoring him in ridiculous situations that no one would ever be on their phone during. 

- Rachel has decided this week is one of the weeks where she’s aggressive about becoming a star, sings Satisfied. 

- Tensions are getting high, so Artie flawlessly white boy raps through “What’d I Miss” while Mike dances, to lighten the mood. 

- The kids are learning about Hamilton, but Schue is worried they’re not REALLY learning the point he’s trying to get at. 

- Probably the Unholy Trinity sings “Schuyler Sisters” 

- Schue walks back in on the kids excitedly talking about the show and/or history in general. Smiles that smile he smiles when he thinks he’s a good teacher. “See you guys? History is now. You’re the founding fathers. You’re the underdogs. Your time is coming, you just have to wait for it.” 

- New Directions: YEAH! 

- The group sings “Wait for It” in the auditorium either in full costume, or wearing just vaguely matching outfits. Finn takes lead, but Mercedes comes in on the middle solo. 

- They all smile at each other at the end, while Schue makes that face again. 

- Sue is in the background glowering that ND has managed to not fall apart yet again.

[ 10th December 2016 ] wew hello everyone! here is this week’s spread that I whipped up in 30minutes (surprisingly) before I had work and was away from home for 5 days ;-;
I’ll be away for camp next week so I won’t be as active but I’ll try to queue some posts so y'all don’t miss me too much (who am I kidding)
*ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT YURI ON ICE???? ITS THE BEST ANIME EVER MADE WITH THE BEST MAINS AND I CANNOT GET OVER IT* *I’m also sad that haikyuu season 3 is over omg I CANNOT wait for season 4 kekekek*
have a good weekend!! 💕✨🔥

Well, it’s over.

I can’t even feel sad or angry. I’m just…numb.

Please know that if you voted for Trump or Johnson, you voted against my welfare as a woman and a human being, and the welfare of every non-white, non-Christian, LGBTQ, low-income, female, and disabled person in this country.

I hope you’re very proud of yourselves.

If this is the kind of mentality that makes this country “great,” then tonight I am ashamed to be an American.

Day 1 of Trump

Muslim student brutally assaulted by two Trump supporters in Louisiana. Hijab ripped off. Day 1. [x]

This happened in Napa Valley last night at the gas station & left them all in tears. [x]

White students @ Southern Illinois University (@SIUC) decided to put on blackface and pose in front of a Confederate Flag to celebrate Trump [x]

This happened in Delaware. [x]

This just happened in Indiana. [x]

This happened at a high school in Minnesota today. DAY 1 of Trump. [x]

So, me and my friend had to make a cereal box for a business project. IDK how, but we ended up doing this, and like most of the class didn’t know what Yugioh was. I feel so ashamed and disgusted. I cannot believe these people, people who I consider to be my peers, don’t know of the beauty that is the Blue Eyes White Dragon.

@hanatrulyi marched tonight and will march tomorrow for many reasons. these are just a few.
i march to show the world that i’m ashamed of who is now in the white house.

i march for the marginalized, our most vulnerable citizens, because i believe everyone should have the same rights and opportunities regardless of color, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.

i march because the first executive order trump signed today may leave millions of people without healthcare.

i march because a man does not have a right to touch my body without an invitation.

i march for anyone who has been abused and called a liar.

i march because i am ashamed of a president that brags about sexual assault.

i march because i am ashamed of a president that has bullied a POW, a deceased muslim soldier’s family, a disabled reporter, a civil rights icon and many more.

i march against a president who believes the climate action plan is “harmful” and wishes to eliminate it.

i march because i believe in protecting our earth and do not approve of an administration that is targeting water, endangered species and national parks.

i march because when good people do nothing, bad things happen.

stay safe tomorrow! 💕🌎🌍🌏💕

Dear Tumblr:

I am not ashamed to be white. Telling me that I am a monster just because of my skin colour and what some white people have done in the past is the most pathetic excuse to victimise yourself. I wasn’t born in the 50s and I have never stated anything about segregation being a good thing.

If this offends any of you Tumblrinas, you can go fuck yourself.

!!!!!!!!!important!!!!!!!!!!!

This Goes Out To My Mother

I’d like to thank my mom for never making it unknown to my sisters and I growing up that we are half black because of her. To never be ashamed of that. Discrimination against any other race was never tolerated because it would be hypocrisy and self hate since we are no Blanca Nieve (Snow White, lol). I am honored to come from such a beautiful, afro-centric culture in a specific region of Ecuador. When I’m in the motherland I look up to all of my older generations and take in their wise teachings on life and noticing the variety of beautiful shades of brown in my family. Seeing the bounce of my mothers curls, the curves we have, the food we taste, the music that sinks into our blood and fills our hearts, it all gives us so much pride to be black in latin america. It’s the best of both worlds.

yo at my artists of color!

I’ve got a 2017 challenge for you:

This year, don’t be afraid of creating things that look like you, sound like you, remind you of your own experiences. Even if you feel like you need to make your characters, your plot, your background as white as what you see in the media, no one can make something as unique as you! Your experience is valid, your emotions are valid, and you sure can put that on paper, or music, or on a screen!

This year is the one where we make our own experiences shine!

Dearest America. Yes, I am being funny. Yes, I am making fun of the ones that voted for the tangerine asshat.

You see, us South Africans have a terrible habit. We deal with times of shock, sadness, upheaval and dismay through one method: Humour.

We know…. we understand what it’s like to be ashamed of your president. We ourselves live in a country ruled by a misogynistic illiterate corrupt criminal. And you know what? We’re still here.

Hang in there America. Be what you are despite who is sitting in the white house. Persevere. And if you need to, laugh.

As a white American I’m utterly ashamed of my country rn. Just because injustice isn’t happening to you doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I am absolutely terrified for every minority, and really, every person in this country. I’m so sorry. Please do not kill you self we can do this we can power through this I believe in you!

A message to non-Americans

I am a 16 year old white female. I am American.
I am ashamed of my country.
America is a melting pot. We pride ourselves on the fact that our country was built by many groups of people.
Look at us, we just elected a bigot.
Please, we Americans are not all Trump. Please, don’t think of us that way.
I will fight for women. For LGBT. For Muslims and blacks and hispanics and Jews. I will fight.
This is not my America. My America is accepting. I’m so scared because I’m still in a high school with predominately Trump supporters until 2019. I am scared for my future.
Please, don’t think we’re all like him. We are nothing like Trump.

You are still non-gay and you're probably not that dark skinned anyway, so you still have privilege. I just love it how just because you're not white you think you can disrespect gay people and our spaces with your cheap heteronormativity.

What? *looks over her blog, sees Woodland Realms, ah that’s it. Misinterpreted the woods. * I am so sorry, maybe looking through by blog triggered you with all of the erected trees that are so close together. So phallic. I’m in their gay space I wonder!

My gods! I didn’t realize forests were gay.. Hm. I’ll look into this immediately. I’m so sorry for posting so much gay forest porn. I’m ashamed! ASHAMED!

True Sam Confessions: In the 1980s I owned a white linen suit which I would wear with pastel tee shirts and deck shoes with no socks à la Don Johnson in Miami Vice.

I am so ashamed.

went to an arangetram today and finally found the perfect opportunity to reclaim the bindi. it took me a very long time to be comfortable doing this. as a second generation indian girl in america, i found myself again and again being ashamed of wearing my salwars, eating my idlis and dosas in public, and even listening to the latest hindi/tamil music because white culture had shut who i am (and the background behind me) down because it didn’t fit their standards. and that was the problem. so i lived about 16 years of my life afraid to show off my culture and not feel embarrassed for assimilating my traditions. and now here i am 18 and proud. so here’s to my desi girls that are finally starting to realize their worth through their culture and starting to be proud of their heritage. here’s to my desi girls that reclaim the bindi the right way, the only way.

I’m frankly a LOT ashamed of the women of my race right now. The loudest Trump supporters/”Well, we have to accept Trump” that I have heard have come from white women. The same women who claim that they “don’t need feminism” because everyone is equal.

BITCHES, WHERE?!
Where is the equality when white women aren’t paid as much as men, and women of Asian, Desi, Latinx, and African descent aren’t even paid as much as we are?

When we have to walk down the streets and worry about being raped, but women of color have to worry about it at higher levels?

When crimes committed against disabled women are atrocious and when skin color is factored in, guess what, it’s WORSE?!

When I, along with several other thousand women, need birth control TO SURVIVE BECAUSE OF PHYSICAL CONDITIONS?

When LGBT+ women are more at risk for abuses and violations?

Frankly, I am ashamed to be a white woman right now. I am ashamed to be a member of a race that let down all of my PoC sisters. I am ashamed that women would turn on other women in such a vile way. I am sickened that you would cast a vote validating people who deny your very personhood.

And for what little it may be worth, I am so fucking sorry that this happened. To anyone who has been terrified by the results of this election, I am, too.

But to others who have greater reason to fear than I do, please, feel utterly free to talk to me. I will do my best to help in whatever way I can.

Be safe.

Be smart.

Be in numbers.
