people's republic of

73% of Dominicans are mixed race (mainly of European and African descent). Only 16% are White European. Dominican is a nationality and an ethnicity, has nothing to do with skin color or hair type. Ya black, honey. I did a project on the Dominican Republic in high school for Spanish class and anti-blackness there is off the charts. No one wants to be black and the Haitians are hated because of their blackness, yet most Dominicans are at least partially black. It’s sad.

why Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is the best game;

  1. you can literally make your character either gender, as sassy as you want, nice, evil, and ask literally everyone for money, all while actually being extremely oblivious to everything 
  2. mission vao
  3. hk-47 is literally the best companion to ever come out of a bioware game
  4. you spend 1/5 of the game beating a gang up and literally just trying to find an engine for your swoopracer so you can save your friend/gf bastila
  5. did i mention mission vao, the coolest 14 year old twi’lek you will ever encounter
  6. literally the old republic, non of the skywalker™ bullshit for you
  7. so much story and characters to love
  8. literally the first thing in star wars to have a canon lesbian
  9. shes a cat babe too and so sweet and tragic too
  10. you get a wookie friend too
  11. you spend 30 minutes talking to a child on your ship who speaks mandalorian, trying to learn her language while an actual mandalorian is less than 10 meters away from you
  12. darth revan is a fucking babe and the original cool sith lord and first bro to wear a mask and hood (fuck you kylo ren)
  13. ????
  14. literaly so good go buy it it wont cost you anymore than 10 dollars on steam and literally any computer can run it its from 2002 

that is all go buy it 

Being Haitian

Out of all the West Indian countries Haiti is always looked down upon and slandered. They do not talk about Haiti the way they talk about Jamaica, Trinidad, or Bahamas etc. every other island is always associated with beauty & riches; while Haiti is associated with everything negative like Voodoo, poverty, & corruption. Every single island has their form voodoo yet no one talks about that, Jamaica can be pretty damn rough, I mean each island has their own problems..You can’t be beautiful & be Haitian bc apparently were ugly, & poor. Growing up I used to get bullied for being Haitian. I mean we’re constantly shit on but Lemme clear it up though, Haitian People ARE NOT symbols of poverty. We’re Fucking human beings. Hard working people. There is so much beauty, culture, & riches on that island. From the food, music, to the beaches…Haiti was the First & ONLY BLACK NATION to gain its independence from colonial oppression; Haiti Led a REVOLUTION That made the U.S & France hate on them. They’ve been through years of oppression, continuous hatred, devastating disasters & still hold true to their very words of “UNION FAIT LA FORCE”, But we’re the poorest country ?! Nah we been runnin shit Haitian, Black & Muthafuckin Proud of it ✊🏾

Damn! Damn! Damn! Every year he forgot. Well, no. He never forgot. He just put the memories away, like old silverware that you didn’t want to tarnish. And every year they came back, sharp and sparkling, and stabbed him in the heart. And today, of all days …

It’s almost the Glorious 25th

You’d like Freedom, Truth, and Justice, wouldn’t you, Comrade Sergeant?’ said Reg encouragingly.
‘I’d like a hard-boiled egg,’ said Vimes, shaking the match out.
There was some nervous laughter, but Reg looked offended.
'In the circumstances, Sergeant, I think we should set our sights a little higher–’
'Well, yes, we could,’ said Vimes, coming down the steps. He glanced at the sheets of papers in front of Reg. The man cared. He really did. And he was serious. He really was. 'But…well, Reg, tomorrow the sun will come up again, and I’m pretty sure that whatever happens we won’t have found Freedom, and there won’t be a whole lot of Justice, and I’m damn sure we won’t have found Truth. But it’s just possible that I might get a hard-boiled egg.

John Keel, Dai Dickens, Ned Coates, Billy Wiglet, Horace Nancyball, Cecil Clapman and (sort of) Reg Shoe
