food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.

the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die

French Friend: well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -

American Friend: THOUSAND?

French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

My favourite bi-weekly event is occurring on such nice days recently; 
Last time it fell on the day when Joan Rivers died, this week it falls on the scottish independence referendum, where we are all talking about the role of smaller states in the revolution, or whether there is a role at all, or what the indyref means to the left, ah, i love it i love it i love it
The rules are simple; Be commie scum, post a selfie, use the tag #commie selfie day.

CULTURAL GENOCIDE:  Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)

Despicable.

I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off. 

Fuck

god I was like hardcore craving Peking duck earlier today but I just ate some yebeg wat and I’m so satisfied with everything in my life right now

"All of which makes $15 an hour sound too high. Hardly. Over the last half-century, American workers have achieved productivity gains that can easily support a $15-an-hour minimum wage. In fact, if the minimum wage had kept pace over time with the average growth in productivity, it would be about $17 an hour. The problem is that the benefits of that growth have flowed increasingly to profits, shareholders and executives, not workers. The result has been bigger returns to capital, higher executive pay — and widening income inequality."
- Today’s NYTimes editorial, Redefining the Minimum Wage (via femocracy)

TO BE HONEST.

curvesincolor:

If we are keeping up with American inflation, then the minimum wage in this country should be set at $21.75 an hour with a guaranteed 40 hour work week. 

But who are we kidding, this is America and this country ONLY supports guns, white people, money, and capitalism.

Urban Outfitters Offers ‘Vintage’ Faux Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt | TPM
Popular clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has taken heat for selling a faux blood-stained, “vintage” sweatshirt evoking the Kent State University shootings of 1970.


The mocked-up sweatshirt appeared on the retailer’s website Sunday evening. It appeared to be a reference to the shooting of college students by the Ohio National Guard in May 1970, complete with splotches of fake blood. The company’s website never described it as a reference to the shooting, however.
The product immediately invited backlash on social media.
By Monday morning, UrbanOutfitters.com listed the item as “sold out,” and any attempt to visit the product page displayed a notification without an image of the sweatshirt.
On Monday morning Urban Outfitters responded with an apology, addressing the sweartshirt’s bloody apperance.
"The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray,” the statement read.
