Today started our busy season at work, so I’ve mostly been walking the floor and providing support to all of the new hires. So this one guy calls me over and asks me a simple question, I show him where to find the answer, cool. The girl next to him asks me to help her with a more complicated situation, so I start walking her through it. Tell me why the first dude starts popping off at me, talking about “if you don’t like me just let me know” and “there was a huge difference between how much you helped her and how you helped me” and “you have a problem with gay people”….. Long story short I’ve been in HR meetings all morning while upper management tries to avoid an “incident”. AND I had to come out to all these old white men which… obviously I’m out just in general but it was still awkward as hell.
I’m just really in my feelings right now. Like, no nigga idgaf about you wearing them gas station ass light brown contacts and carrying around a fake Louis Vuitton bag, I care about the fact that last week when I told you to subtract one number from another you gave a blank stare and said “….oh you mean take away?” Like………..?????? MFFW?????

I never thought of that this is genius.
When I was considering homelessness, I already knew I’d be doing this. It makes so much sense. Planet Fitness is only $10 a month so it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to afford it.
a friendly reminder
real life P.S.A..
I’ve had friends that have done this when they needed to escape their unsupportive families.
this was my entire plan when I thought I’d be homeless.
Just in case anyone needs it.
this is so important

Many people know that women make 77 cents to the dollar compared to men. But did you know that African-American women make just 64 cents to the dollar, and Hispanic women make just 56 cents? One group offers an interesting way to fix this.
I just don’t understand why all of these posts ignore that the racial pay gap also impacts men of color.
I honestly believe that this oversight is on purpose because nobody wants to acknowledge that Black and Latino and Native men are being paid less than white WOMEN. Because that would totally re-frame this pay gap conversation if it was widely acknowledged. And suddenly, there would be NO reason for white women to be front and center.
Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.
Halle Berry won and then played a bunch of bit parts or had to produce her own movies to get meaty roles…eventually turning to tv on a show she’s producing.
Denzel won and then was either typecast, teamed up with mediocre action stars, or produced his own movies to get meaty roles.
Jennifer Hudson won and her reward was playing Sarah Jessica Parker’s assistant in Sex And The City.
Monique won and disappeared because she angered people by speaking up about the bs.
Viola Davis keeps getting the broken, disheveled mom or wise friend roles… and eventually had to turn to a Black female producer on tv.
like… you can’t tell me this is typical for white actors. we talk about how shameful it is that Leo hasn’t won, but Leo has no trouble getting good, challenging, interesting starring roles. Neither do Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr…. like… come on! and yeah, white women have it harder than white men, but let’s talk about how much harder it is for Viola Davis to get a decent role than Sandra Bullock.
True ass facts.
And all these women are immensely talented and can out act all the Jennifer Lawrences, Blake Livelys, and etc.
This is why when people down a black actress for the type of roles she plays I tell them to cut the women some slack because it’s so hard for them.
I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government
