"If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things—help and comfort and laughter—and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all."
― Frances Hodgson Burnett (via psych-quotes)

Fact# 5857: Henrietta Lacks died in 1951. The tumor that killed her has been alive and growing to this day. The tumor is immortal and was used to progress the Polio vaccine and is the jumping point for most human cell research to this day. Scientists have grown some 20 tons of her cells.

They forgot the part where they took the cells and grew them without her consent.

They also forgot the part where to this day her family and still-living descendants have not received any compensation for the use of her stolen cells.

They also also forgot the part where she was Black.


This is a book you need to read.

Thank God We Solved Racism…

This epitomizes why the politics of respectability is so pointless and a ridiculous way to solve racism.
O’Reiley himself claims that if black men dress right, stay in school, and etc that they will be treated with respect. And yet, he blatantly disrespects a Columbia Professor dressed in a suit by reducing him to a cocaine dealer. This is how white people work. They give conditions for you to be treated with humanity, but even when you meet those arbitrary conditions you’re still treated as less than human.
And black people need to become wiser to these tactics. Because then Don Lemon wouldn’t have made the silly statements he made. 

Bill O’Reily strikes me as some kind of sick joke

"This is how white people work" You’re inferring that all white people act the same way is racist as well. I would have agreed with you fully if you had not said that one little phrase. Now all I can see is that YOU are racist towards white people. Which would put you in the same boat as Bill O’Reiley.

Reverseracism is a myth. Racism is institutional. ALL white people benefit from racism. Most of you participate in subtle racism and if you don’t, you still benefit from racism. Most of you are ignorant to the fact that the world is not a ‘post racial’ society. Most of you are either : active bigots, timid bigots, fair weather bigots.
Active Bigot – “All-weather bigot" – Example: Openly racist and makes racial remarks regardless of audience.
Timid Bigot – prejudice but afraid of the consequences of discrimination.
Fair-weather Liberal (Reluctant Liberal) – Discriminates without having personal prejudice. Will not call out another person for being racist, will usually laugh at racist jokes/actions. These people almost always think they are not “racist”.
