I hate it when people act like anger invalidates a cause, because when it comes down to it the privileged are the only ones who can afford to remain calm.
When the privileged are angry they’re; passionate, invested, patriotic, of spirit and righteous.
When the oppressed are angry they’re; savage, incapable of rationality, primitive, beastial, juvenile and violent.
Tone policing ain’t nothing but shifting goal posts towards dehumanization.
PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST
19 month old Khalid has a rare form of blood cancer and has been placed on the bone marrow transplant list. He has just six weeks left to find a match, but it’s proving difficult as he’s mixed race (half white, half desi). His father is a 50% match, but for the best chance of him recovering he needs a donor who is a 100% match.
If you’re of the same mixed ethnic background, living in the UK, and are willing to be tested for a match for baby Khalid, contact his parents here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1420679168150549/?fref=ts
It’s super important that ethnic minorities and mixed race people register as there is a huge lack of matches for the ethnic minorities suffering from blood cancer.
Yeah pls reblog this post
SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE!
The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

men don’t get to decide what is misogynistic
straight people don’t get to decide what it homophobic
cis people don’t get to decide what is transphobic
white people don’t get to decide what is racist
people in positions of power
