this is the most important thing right now.
If Latin America had not been pillaged by the U.S. capital since its independence, millions of desperate workers would not now be coming here in such numbers to reclaim a share of that wealth; and if the United States is today the world’s richest nation, it is in part because of the sweat and blood of the copper workers of Chile, the tin miners of Bolivia, the fruit pickers of Guatemala and Honduras, the cane cutters of Cuba, the oil workers of Venezuela and Mexico, the pharmaceutical workers of Puerto Rico, the ranch hands of Costa Rica and Argentina, the West Indians who died building the Panama Canal, and the Panamanians who maintained it.

Can i preface this with: If Latin America (and AFrica) had not been pillaged FIRST by bitchass Europe the european industrial revolution would have been shit and also your food would STILL be bland as fuck. Where did you get all that labor and wealth from to finance practically everything? Italian food sin tomates? NOPE. Fuck y’all

Please Prove My Mother Wrong

timeisanillusionandsoarepants:

I cannot believe I am doing this but…

my mother just said that if a girl wearing a stereotypically slutty outfit and she is raped it is partially her fault AND that in the bible it is not blatantly written, but implies that women are inferior to boys.

She also thinks  I am the only person in this world who thinks she is wrong.

******PLEASE REBLOG IF YOU AGREE WITH ME SO I CAN PROVE MY MOTHER WRONG!*******

Being around you makes me think of hell and all the reasons I belong there.

"I think it’s about time that we represent all women on the catwalk because that is a part of fashion. The way I see it, there’s no wrong way to be a woman."

I think a wonderful symbol of the Tibetan culture is the behavior of the stray dogs around their monastery. Most everywhere else I’ve traveled, stray dogs have been very skittish around humans. Here, they seemed right at home.
