"Students of color are allowed to enter the classroom but never on an equal footing. When they walk in, they are subject to the same racial stereotypes and expectations that exist in the larger society. Students of color do not have the advantage of walking into a classroom as individuals; they walk in as black, brown, [yellow] or red persons with all the connotations such racialization raises in the classroom. They do not walk into a classroom where the curriculum embraces their histories. They walk into a classroom where their histories and cultures are distorted, where they feel confused about their own identities, vulnerabilities, and oppressions. There is no level of liberal reforms that can alter these experiences for students of color without directly challenging the larger systems in society."

Woman: I have been abused by all the men I've been with.

Men: That's your fault. You should have made better choices.

Same woman: I don't want to be with men because of the abuse I have suffered at their hands. I'm worried it will happen again.

Same men: HOW DARE YOU NOT TRUST US, YOU MANHATING BITCH?

"The white man made us many promises, but he only kept one. He promised to take our land, and he took it."

THIS

WHERE IS THIS FROM ?

It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

-huffs and puffs-

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.

"Research confirms that while the majority of drug users and sellers in NY are white, 90% of the people incarcerated under the Rockefeller Drug Laws are African American and Latina/o. The same is true across the country: while 2/3’s of the regular crack-cocaine users in the US are either white or Latina/o, 82% of those sentenced in federal court for crack-cocaine offense are African American."
