Holy shit finally, this looks so fucking funny.
I remember my trip two years ago, to San Francisco. I took a cab to this bridge while my sister was on a conference call. I stood there for about two hours, looking down, people watching, and wondering how far down the water was. A girl sat next to me, and asked me, “You’re not going to jump„ are you?” I smiled and reassured her I wasn’t. That I was just a tourist. She then said, “You look a lot like my sister. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to make you uncomfortable. But I had to ask, can I hug you? You just look so much like her.” I felt awkward at first, but then I realized. “She jumped?” This girl’s face just crumpled, and she started crying. I hugged her, without a second thought, and for some reason I apologized. Not sure what else I could say. She goes, “Those were the last words she ever spoke to me.”
And I will never forget this girl, her name was Ariana.

What dafuq? This is so stupid and ignorant. We white people need to suck it the fuck up and accept the fact that we have privilege WHICH MEANS WE TAKE TIME TO SPREAD AWARENESS OF UNEQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR SOCIETY AS WELL AS DOWNRIGHT RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION PRESENT ALL AROUND US
Unequal opportunities based on race? I can agree with that… Just not in your context. Being white, I have access to fewer scholarships than a minority. I had to join the military just to be able to go to college at all.“Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population.
Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race.”
BUT WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL NEED BASED SCHOLARSHIPS????
It debunks the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships. The reality is that minority students are less likely to win private scholarships or receive merit-based institutional grants than Caucasian students. Among undergraduate students enrolled full-time/full-year in Bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities, minority students represent about a third of applicants but slightly more than a quarter of private scholarship recipients. Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.
REMEMBER THAT TIME YOU STARTED PARROTING RACIST MYTHS INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY FACT CHECKING?
One of my favourite things about tumblr is whenever some jackass with a self-congratulatory handle like “commonsenselibertarian” says something ridiculously ignorant in an appeal to the received wisdom of the day, and gets his ass handed to him.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THIS WOULD BENEFIT THE AMERICANS ON TUMBLR. THEY COULD ACTUALLY SEE THEIR FRIENDS THAT LIVE ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THIS PLACE IS TOO GODDAMN BIG TO NOT HAVE A SYSTEM LIKE THIS.
AMERICA’S TRAINS ARE DECADES BEHIND OTHER COUNTRIES’ RAILWAY TECHNOLOGY. IT’S AN EMBARRASSMENT AND WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIX IT WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
