I don’t have enough money for my basic needs.
Working 40+ hours just to pay my rent
Now I don’t even have a single cent
Tuition is high, I gotta pay for books
Oh i’m so broke and I don’t wanna look
I popped open my wallet, no funds to count
my credit declined and my check just bounced
Oh, there daddy, daddy betta bring that TAP
Oh, baby, baby where my FASFA at?
Mostly white people this, white people that, white people…..
You know there are more coloured people in the world than WHIte folks?
You know that all people fight, rape, harass, mutilate.
You know that you telling me I can’t wear something because of my skin colour is just another form of oppression?
I’m sorry but I’m not sorry, the past is in the past… All you have is the NOW, all I have is the NOW.
So instead of you celebrating your culture and running a blog or some sort of awareness outreach for your culture you are going around policing who can wear what and why without any tangible, realistic argument.
What is this doing for you?
What have you gained?
What has your culture gained?
Being afraid of being yourself because you may or may not be harassed is just, well, it’s living life in FEAR. Not LOVE.
Spreading love and hope and being free, that’s where we need to be.
This girl thinks that people should go out and stop other people from oppressing/appropriating their culture and is having a meltdown about someone telling her she shouldn’t wear a bindi SMH #WHITEPRIVILEGE
My dream rn is to be lying on a beach, stoned and eating mangoes.

actually figuring out what’s at the root of all your problems is a really good feeling
fixing it is another story

quimmiq is the inuktituk word for the canadian eskimo dog (canis familiaris borealis), which after four thousand years in canada’s arctic faces imminent extinction, in large part due to a policy of eradication by the royal canadian mounted police meant to force the inuit into government settlement. brian ladoon, whose dogs we see here near churchill, manitoba, has been breeding quimmiq for over forty years and is largely responsible for maintaining the species.
so it was with much trepidation that brian noticed a group of polar bears, who eat quimmiq, approaching his dogs one day in 1992. though most of his dogs became quite defensive, one of them playfully ventured up to a polar bear and the two got on like old firends. every year since, the polar bears will stop by ladoon’s place to play with the dogs on their way to the newly iced over hudson bay.
these photos were taken by famed arctic photographer norbert rosing, who just happened to be with brian on that day in 1992. the canadian eskimo dog is still on the verge of extinction, with estimates of three hundred or less left. "the last dogs of winter" is a 2011 documentary on brian ladoon’s efforts
