I’d like to correct this:
“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.
I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.
I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.
I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.
I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.
I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”
reblogging for the comment
I did, but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.
fucking BOOM ^
These comments are perfect.

Yay, finally someone made this a GIF! It’s from her documentary about her album 4, Year of 4. She had everyone write their favorite songs from the album (to narrow down the final selections) and she tried to peek at Jay-Z’s list. He wouldn’t let her. They’re so cute.
J had his hair long here because he has a ritual where he grows it out when he’s working on an album. And I will never forget his EPIC line from The Blueprint 3, “What We Talkin’ ‘About”:
Still they can’t’ focus on them, they be talking ‘bout me
Talking ‘bout what I wear, talking ‘bout where I be
Check out my hair, these ain’t curls these is peas
‘Peasey head’ still get paid, I’m combin’ through G’s
Please, we ain’t focused on naps
Cause I don’t run rap no more, I run the map
I like this because some people were literally were calling him “nappy head.” Though the brunt of the burden of Black hair politics falls on Black women, Black men don’t escape it completely. Black men also used to relax/conk their hair, were mocked for their hair, are currently denied some jobs based on their hair and some celebrity Black men have texturizers today. Also, Black men have hair rules to follow at certain HBCUs.
There’s a lot of politics here. Sometimes it really needs to just be hair, however difficult. I said the same thing about Bey recently.
(Yeah…I really did just get all of this from a single GIF. Y’all know how I roll…LOL.)
Sundays are one of the main reasons why I want a boyfriend because what does anyone even do on a Sunday like if I had a boyfriend I could do him
or OR YOU CAN GO TO CHURCH ON A SUNDAY AND GET THAT DIRTY MIND CLEANSED BY THE LORD
do most american world maps seriously have america in the centre?
WE DO HAHAHAHA
Are you fucking kidding me.
In Chinese maps, Asia is in the center. Which nation is centralized depends on the map’s origins.
In Canada, our maps are cut through the Pacific, so we don’t offend anyone.
sometimes i feel like canadian stereotypes go too far and then this happens
Australian maps are upside down so Australia is above everyone else
it got better
I’m sure I wanted to reblog this. Didn’t know if I did. Doing it now.

Pop Culture Crayons
Artist Hoang Tran creates tiny sculptures using large-size Crayola crayons, the artist delicately hand-carves them into pop-culture icons.
Respect to all the beautiful and loyal dogs assisting soldiers all over the world. Past and present. National Dog Day.
Doggles are cool as shit
Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
She is so amazing. Just stops, surveys the obstacle in front of her, and goes for it.
