Reasons to dye your hair bright and unnatural colors
- Because you wanna
- Being punk rock
- Looking hella cute
- Small children’s reactions
I honestly, honestly think that is some of the reasons why the race parties are such a horrible fad on college campuses. They are carrying on what we did in elementary school. Let’s make culture a party! Everyone bring your cultural food and put on a costume! The racism is present and good percentage of the participants are really expressing deep rooted racism. But some truly don’t want to “understand why it’s wrong” when they are re-enacting what we used to do with culture in elementary schools. Culture was supposed to be fun. “I don’t understand why you are mad now? I thought culture was a party!” Party’s over kids. Put down the head-dress."

As one of our members says,
“I’m 25 yrs old, but my body feels much older…how will I take care of my children when they are older, and my body is broken down.When my body’s all used up, they’ll dispose of me (fire me or deport me). I’ve been coming here to pick berries since I was 14. I’m 25 now. This company has taken my youth, and it will take my children’s youth.”
We’re not just here for the stoop labor, we are part of the community.
We deserve to live long and healthy lives too, so we can see our children and grandchildren grow up healthy."
okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
