    Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.

    While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.

    The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.)  While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself.  Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self.  And THAT is a huge problem.  Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening.  She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.

    And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it.  It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.

    George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

    "Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014). 

    Full Episode (apologies, The Daily Show website does not have the best video player). 

    To Be Takei documentary official website. 

    - Mod Dawes Sr. 

    This is why the pledge don’t mean shit to me. Or the Fourth or any of that other hollow horse shit.

    This is in my Economics textbook

    This is fucked up

    if you couldn’t SEE how fucked up this is, let me put this into even more perspective for you.

    a male with no high school education still makes more than a female with 9th-12th grade education (no diploma).

    a male who is a high school graduate still makes more than a female with an associate’s degree.

    a male with a bachelor’s degree only makes about ~$2000 less than a female with a fucking doctorate’s degree.

    tell me again why feminism isn’t important.

    I am personally offended to the highest degree

    "The wage gap doesn’t really exist." Fucking yeah right.
