Im pretty sure I walk past a lot more cops than that
Mixed-race fetishization is an issue that needs way more awareness as it is extremely harmful to all POC. Because there are people who date interracially just so that they can have “pretty mixed babies”. So not only do they fetishize monoracial POC, but they also objectify and sexualize their own offspring and if you don’t think that’s fucked up then I don’t know what to tell you.
really awesome steps for anyone who’s white but wants to maintain their dreadlocks!
- take a shower
- shave your head
- apologize to everyone you’ve ever spoken to
- find good homes for any animals that may have hidden in the nest on your head

Let them be naked on the earth. Let them taste weird things and teach em to respect all other creatures. Show them how to gently move bugs back outside and never let them pour salt on slugs. Don’t let them hear you utter a single word of judgement for others. Simply explain that those who you don’t get along with are on a different different path than you, and that’s okay.
Let them climb trees, even if it makes ya nervous. Build earth altars and celebrate the seasons and the flow of earth’s cycle.
Teach them about their bodies, tell them the real names for their body parts and how they work, and how to feed their bodies to honor them best. Don’t shame them for things like sexuality and nudity.
Feed them fruit with coconut cream for desserts and let them pick their own veggies from the farmer’s market or the garden that you’ll then cook together.
Read stories, build faery homes, and cultivate their imagination. Turn off the screens. Let them sleep snuggled in the warm nest of your arms if that’s what they need. Ask them what they dream about and never make them feel that those dreams are too big for them.
Oh please this has been going on forever 😒😒😒😒😒

Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.
All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.
Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.
In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”
Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.
It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.
With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.
How to handle the language barrier
German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.
What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.
This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.
If Americans don’t reblog this, then y’all need help.
okay but I’m black? how I’m suppose to even enter Germany
