why people are poor

We live in a chaotic world where it’s difficult to understand the rules. Because why are some people poor and other people rich? Why do some people have to be refugees, while others are safe? Why are some people spit on on the street? And why is it that sometimes, even though you try to do something good, it’s still met with hate? It’s not weird that people give up. That they stop believing in the good. But thank you so much for not giving up, Sana. Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. Each and every one of us is a part of the big chaos. And what you do today, has an effect tomorrow. It can be hard to say, exactly what kind of effect. And you usually can’t see how everything fits together. But the effects of your actions, are always there, somewhere in the chaos. In a hundred years, we may have machines that can predict the effect of every action, but until then, we can trust this:
Fear spreads. But..
But fortunately, love does too.
—  Jonas, Skam 4x10 final speech

SKAM S04E10 Clip 8 - Dear Sana

[Incomprehensible chatter]

SANA: He’s the one who bought the toilet paper rolls.

THE GIRLS: Oh! That’s right!

VILDE: Where did they end up?

BOY: I just sold them to some friends at the Mosque. Nothing big.

EVA: Oh, okay.

BOYS: Eyyyy!

ESKILD: Eid mubarak! Eid mubarak.

SANA: Hi!

ESKILD: Hi!

SANA: Welcome.

ESKILD: Thank you and I just wanted to say Eid mubarak!

SANA: Eid mubarak!

ESKILD: Eid mubarak

SANA: Ohhh, how nice the two of you look!

ESKILD: Thanks! I’m the one who chose the outfits for tonight. I went to Grøndland and did some shopping. Yes.

SANA: Hijab and everything?

ESKILD: Hijab and everything. And I brought a little present! I brought a gift for the hostess. It’s two boreks that I put in a nice box.

SANA: That’s very nice of you.

Why I Love Black People, Reason #8,372.

So last night, some poor intern at Yahoo probably lost their job with this tweet.

Learn to proofread, Beth!  Anyway, Black Twitter was not bout to just let that slide and the GOLD going down in the #NiggerNavy hashtag has me crying.  Now, I know some of my white friends/readers are slightly uncomfortable reading that hashtag, and that just means you were raised right.  But Black America has enacted a brief – very brief – reprieve where you can read and even chuckle about the n-word without collapsing into a puddle of guilt.  Note, this reprieve is not extended to speaking or typing, so I bet not see none of y’all’s handles on Twitter trynna participate.  I already know Buzzfeed is probably finding one of their many Black folks to compile a list and blur out the i-g-g in each tweet so they can post it and catch those clicks real quick.

And tell your Trumpublican cousins to stay out of our hashtag with their whining about how racist it is that we can say it and they can’t.

Edit:  I don’t check for Buzzfeed so I was wrong.  I mean, yes, they already made a post, but they didn’t blur anything.

  • 16 Year Old Me: Why are people poor? There's enough food and shelter for everybody.
  • Conservative Parents: You're too young to understand. Go to college.
  • Goes to college. Acquires bachelors in political science. Reads books and essays for a decade on structural poverty: Turns out poverty is a man-made creation structured to maintain a hierarchy of power. Vast majorities of people have little to nothing because the top of the capitalist hierarchy deploys state violence to horde wealth.
  • Conservative Parents: Bla bla bla, liberal commie-talk. A college degree don't make you smarter.
  • Me: Liberals and communists aren't the same thing.

I don’t understand why people are angry that Ariana canceled her tour?? That poor girl witnessed an explosion in front of her own eyes. At her own concert. She will feel a huge weight of responsibility for the tragedy because all of the victims came to see her. They came because of her. She’ll be sitting there asking herself “Why me? Why my concert? Why of all places and times did they choose my concert?” She will blame herself for leading children to their deaths. This tragedy will affect her mental well-being for the rest of her life. Let me reiterate: She watched people die.

Frankly, I would be highly concerned if she didn’t cancel her tour.

I lost some really pricey headphones today and I’m coming back tomorrow on campus to check if I left them in one of my labs I hope they’re still there pls send me good luck

why did nt people have to ruin fucking fidget spinners they had a purpose to ease anxiety and help people who pick their skin or pull their hair as a nervous habit and now theyre being banned from schools because the fucKING NT PEOPLE ARE JUST TREATING THEM LIKE TOYS WHY THE FUCK DO THEY HAVE TO RUIN EVERYTHING OH MY GOD

EDIT: And I’m not saying NT people can’t enjoy the fidget toys/stimming in general. If you’re one of the people who quietly uses their fidget toy/stim toy in class without bringing a bunch of attention to yourself, then you’re fine and I’m glad you’re having fun with it!!

It’s the fucking shits who buy the stupid light up spinners and do “sick tricks” with it and bring a ton of attention to themselves/try to talk to others about how cool their fidget is in the middle of class when the teacher is teaching.

not to mention the teachers who arent educating themselves on these fidgets and just automatically assuming theyre a toy/distraction when in reality they can help their students focus better and actually improve in class!

THOSE people are the reason why these poor kids who aren’t doing anything wrong with their fidgets aren’t allowed to bring them to school anymore. THEY ARE NOT TOYS!!
