Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
omg i fucking love this
It’s like in the second to last gif the owl is saying “I got kissed by a really cute boy”

but why is no one talking about how pretty this owl is……??!?
No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.
OMFG NEW EXPERIMENTS
HOW IS GRAVITY EVEN REAL
OKAY LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING
Gravity acts on every part of an object, that much is true. However, what’s going on here is so much more complicated than gravity. The spring compresses because its shape means the rings want to be together. I’m sure we all know Newton’s Third Law: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - that is to say, for every bit of gravitational force bringing the top of the Slinky down, there is an equal amount of tension force bringing the bottom of the Slinky up. The bottom of the Slinky doesn’t move because the force of the rings bringing themselves up to meet the ring above them pulls it up at a rate equal to that of gravity.
TLDR: the Slinky is just that cool.

I don’t usually post things like this or ask for help but we really need it. This is my little cousin, when she was 4 she suffered a 2 and a half hour long seizure that left her in a coma. She woke up with severe brain damage. She lost her eye sight, ability to talk and she lost all control of her body. She has to slowly relearn everything all over again.
We have found a specialist in the US that offers a therapy that awakens the brain to gain back the things she’s lost. This therapy is crucial for her to get her life back. We live in Canada and the treatment is expensive so we’re doing all the fundraising we can. If you can, it would mean everything to us if you could donate, every little bit helps. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog to get this post out there. Thank you if you read this, I love you! x
guys, please read this, reblog this, and if possible—donate to help this sweetheart out. I sincerely hope everything will go well with her and ill be keeping her in my prayers xx PLEASE REBLOG, EVERYONEguys please, even if it’s only like a dollar, it would help out a lot & I’ll personally thank you and return a favor if you’d like.
Now HE is a role-model
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
they criticize him because they aren’t brave enough to emulate him.
Wow, this is awesome!
So, you know, you mention the Tupamaros as a “robin hood organization” and don’t mention that they were a Marxist group, because that word is scary to liberals.
And the post kinda glosses over that the country was at the time, under a military Junta.
Jose Mujica is so much better than this photoset
Oh my god if you’re going to judge someone’s cosplay you better learn your fucking shit because this is Duela Dent you goddamn assholes.
