Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks
Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.
No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip…
1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.
2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.
3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.
4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.
5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.
6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.
7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.
8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.
9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.
10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.
You do understand there are black trash hillbillys right? There are black people who are poor with no privilege. Black people who’s moms were on crack and have men coming & and out every day. Being white is a privilege being poor isn’t. You can be black and poor, then you have to deal with both racism and classism.
See, this is exactly what I mean when I say “people sit in their ignorance.” This type of question shouldn’t even be asked. White privilege is privilege for being white. That’s what it is.
Many white people will see the word “privilege” completely tune out the word “white” before it (as it applies context) and then complain to someone using faulty logic. It’s ridiculous. I can’t stand people like that I really can’t stand it.
In 0.35 seconds, this asker could have answer from googling but they take pride in being ignorant, somehow they think that they’re superior and that they’ve stumped people with no thought logic.
Whenever I come across something like this, a great post I saw comes to mind: “White privilege does not mean your life isn’t hard. It means that your life is not hard BECAUSE you are white, the way an individual’s of another race might be.”
Exactly.Not to mention white trash is a racist term against black people
White Trash = You’re a deviation from regular white, which is pure and untainted, so you are trash, you’re off brand white
Meanwhile for black folks…
Black = Trash, regardless, doesn’t matter if you’re rich or Oprah, still trash because you are black, no need to say “black trash” or make a special category
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
we’ve moved from sex accessory in a white man’s arms to fashion accessory slung on a white woman’s shoulder whoooooo
The Supreme Court upheld Michigan’s ban on affirmative action Tuesday, but not without a blistering dissent from Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Sotomayor said the decision infringed upon groups’ rights by allowing Michigan voters to change “the basic rules of the political process … in a manner that uniquely disadvantaged racial minorities.”
"In my colleagues’ view, examining the racial impact of legislation only perpetuates racial discrimination," Sotomayor added. “This refusal to accept the stark reality that race matters is regrettable. As members of the judiciary tasked with intervening to carry out the guarantee of equal protection, we ought not sit back and wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society.”
The court’s 6-2 decision upheld a voter-approved change to the Michigan state Constitution that prevents public colleges from using race as a factor in its admissions. As the AP noted, the ruling provides a boost for other education-related affirmative action bans in California and Washington state.
ABC News pointed out that Sotomayor has been open about the role affirmative action has played in her personal life. In her memoir “My Beloved World,” Sotomayor wrote that it “opened doors” for her.
"But one thing has not changed: to doubt the worth of minority students’ achievement when they succeed is really only to present another face of the prejudice that would deny them a chance even to try," she wrote.

Of course. Asia and Europe aren’t even a separate landmass, after all.
Here are some links to give you a broader perspective on the kinds of people who would have been in Medieval England, Europe overall, how and why they got there, and how long they would have been there for.
Western Europe via Venice (trade gateway)
Black and Asian Performance in British History (V&A Museum)
P.S. Asian people in Medieval European art are usually “marked” that way via clothing, not physical characteristics.
P.P.S. There’s a good bit of evidence that a character like the one you describe would not have necessarily been perceived as physically “other” or “different” by Medieval English society; but you’re writing for people reading this story now. Probably keep that in mind.
Also, an Asian woman as a Robin Hood type character would make a fascinating story and a lot of sense! Many Asian nations/regions have a long tradition of women warriors.
- Khutulun, Wrestler Princess
- Queen Sondok
- Queen Manduhui
- The Trung Sisters
- Lady Hö’elün
- Shagrat Al-Durr
- Empress Chabi
- Sorghatani Beki
- The Great Khanum (and eight princesses)
- The Katuns (Queens) of Mongolia
One more fun thing: Trotula of Salerno, who revolutionized Medieval medicine by and for women, synthesizing knowledge flowing out of Asia and the Middle East regarding medicine and specifically gynecology. In Medieval Europe, some of the most well-known people of color were physicians, because African and Asian medicine was pretty revered.
It all depends on what kind of story you want to tell. You can have some pretty epic Merry Men and Women, too!
- Environmental racism is the geographic relationship between environmental degradation and low-income or minority communities.
- The people populating areas within 2 miles of our nation’s hazardous waste facilities are by majority of color.
- Racial disparities of color exist in 9 out of 10 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regions.
- Existing laws and land-use controls have not been adequately applied in order to reduce health risks for those living in or near toxic “hot spots”.
- African Americans are 79 percent more likely than whites to live in neighborhoods where industrial pollution is suspected of causing the greatest health dangers.
- A Commission for Racial Justice study found that three of the five largest waste facilities dealing with hazardous materials in the United States are located in poor black communities.This study also showed that three out of every five African American and Latinos live in areas near toxic waste sites, as well as live in areas where the levels of poverty are well above the national average.
- Poverty-stricken Native American communities face some of the worst toxic pollution problems in the country.
- “Approximately half of all Native Americans live in communities with an uncontrolled toxic waste site,” according to the Commission for Racial Justice.
- Living near toxic waste facilities and in low income housing affects almost every aspect of life including food, water, and air. Homes, schools, and workplaces are deemed unsafe because of environmental hazards in the buildings, which are dilapidated and outdated.
- Children of color who live in poor areas are more likely to attend schools filled with asbestos, live in homes with peeling lead paint, and play in parks that are contaminated.
- These same children are nearly 9 times more likely than economically advantaged children to be exposed to lead levels so high they can cause severe learning disabilities and neurological disorders. 96 percent of African American children who live in inner cities have unsafe amounts of lead in their blood.
Malcolm was a prophet.
It really fucking annoys me when people be arguing against diversity and fair representation in media by saying shit like "It shouldn’t be forced"
Um no. You know what is forced?- WHITENESS
Yet I don’t hear you complaining about that thoooo
