Ahhh, why do people give you such a hard time. -________- I think you're splendid.
Thank you so much!!! I really needed this message.
Ugh, I don’t even know. I haven’t come on tumblr much at all lately because it has been just SOO negative for a long time now, and I decided hey, I’m in a good mood, I’ll come on and see whats going on…nope. Bad choice. I’m so tired of it.
For the record, I do not have a problem with interracial dating. I myself have dated outside my race MOST of the time, I am a product of interracial parents who were both mixed race themselves. Don’t start spinning my words around please.
I barely even touched on that topic, in that ask. But I have every right to complain when I go out and try to have a good time and the only girls getting attention are the drunk white ones. If you would have seen this place you’d understand what I meant by that. It bugged me because my friend and I were getting creeped hardcore by dorky white guys, while the men we were interested in were busy with the bleach blondes wobbling around in cheap heels.
Why the fuck does it concern you if "brown dudes" date white girls? You preach all this shit and then say something backwards like that, yeah ok
Thanks for reminding me why I haven’t been on tumblr much lately.
I’m not going to get into this right now because I’m extra bitter about this native guy I’ve been talking to that just started dating some crazy Irish chick he met online that clearly has a native fetish
My friend’s bf’s car was broken into, so when we came out and walked to the car we found a brick laying on the ground, door dented, driver’s window smashed, and another brick laying on the hood that had cracked the windshield.
We had to wait around for over 2 hours in the freezing wind and rain for the tow truck
I got in a fight with this girl for discussing how racist and stupid Arizona is
It was a huge mess. I am still not sorry, since I didn’t say anything that wasn’t 100% fact. I think she was pissed that my friend and I also discussed the police brutality she and her brother had to endure a few years ago, the racist comments she would get when she went out with her ex (she is black, he was white), and our opinions on how almost all the brown dudes in the clubs were dancing with trashy white girls.
This girl had also claimed to be Menominee, but couldn’t answer any of the VERY BASIC questions I asked her, and got pissed when after telling me she’d be working for IHS I’d said “good luck”…what the fuck ever. I could go on and on about this, but it made me mad for all of sunday, and I’m pretty much over it now.
I hate when people fetishize other races especially natives (because obviously). I can understand a genuine interest and what not but there’s a point where it’s going way too far and becomes obsessive. I understand some people become obsessed with things easily but it still bothers the shit outta me when people obsess over other groups of ACTUAL living breathing people. It’s sickening honestly.
“And don’t presume I don’t do anything for the Indian struggle. Because my very existence is a big FUCK YOU to the hundreds of years of genocide. My dedication to learning and being true to my language and culture is radical and when I’m able to pass it all on to OTHER Cherokees it will be the biggest protest and act of resistance of all. You and others like you pushing tired and false stereotypes about us though…y’all are part of the problem.”—Svnoyi (via velocicrafter)
When you have to finance your own birthday party. #NativeProblems
For my 18th birthday, I financed a trip for my mom, sister, and I to go to Mall of America…it was just great when I left my purse at a restaurant on the drive home and we didn’t notice until we were at the gas station and I was supposed to be paying lol.
You know what is sad? Some of these ignorant and racist fools who say they are Native, might actually have Native American ancestry. Not all, but some. Who knows, maybe someone in their family was forcefully removed, relocated, or adopted out. It’s sad what they have become.
It’s sad, they’ve missed out - they didn’t get to grow up learning about the awesome and beautiful culture that their family comes from.
It’s sad, most of these people are so far removed from the culture that they wish they were actually a part of it. They grasp for whatever they think would bring them closer to it, without actually learning the truth, without actually trying to understand. They cling to stereotypical images of what they think it means to be Native: feathers, headdresses, dream catchers..
It’s sad, because they don’t know that by using these damaging and stereotypical images the way they do, they perpetuate the cycle of racism towards Native Americans. When faced with the truth, instead of realizing and accepting that they truly don’t understand, they lash out and use their mostly unknown heritage as a defense.
It’s sad, because now they become the random Native American friend that all the racists refer to when giving the argument, “I have a friend that’s Native American, and she thinks it’s okay.”
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”— Mohandas Ghandi (via clandestinegalaxy)
