hoppskotch asked:
Okay so I hate to always come to you for these questions but you're the only outspoken, patient SJW blogger I know of. I'm worried that I'm not doing enough or that I don't know the full scope of the Ferguson issue. I understand that it's fucked up and beyond unacceptable, but are there ways I can educate myself on the true severity of these issues? Sorry if this question isn't something you're willing to answer, I understand, but thank you for reading this far. Have a nice day.

Actually I wouldn’t call myself an SJW blogger at all since I don’t actively align myself with an organization or charity group — I just like to have discussions about important topics that effect me and other oppressed groups, while at the same time (hopefully) encouraging other people to do the same. I also thank you for understanding that while I don’t mind educating people from time to time, it is something that I choose to do and shouldn’t be required of me.

But yeah, I could literally be here all day talking about what’s going on in Ferguson right now and unfortunately I do not have the time to really go in, so here are some helpful links to some really resourceful posts that other awesome people have made:

- Here’s one with a timeline of events and a short recommendation list of people to watch who are actively updating events happening in Ferguson

- Here’s another talking about the recent autopsy of Mike Brown’s body that was recently released to the public (TW: death, murder, descriptions of gun wounds)

- Here’s a really thoughtful one about what white people can do to help out and be a good ally to black folks

- And here’s a last one with a link to a fund that’s been set up to help bail out protesters that have been arrested if you’d like to donate

I also highly recommend that you keep watch on twitter, particularly on #Ferguson, since people are continuing to live tweet events as they’re happening.

Hope this helps you and anybody else that is interested in doing their part for the people of Ferguson. : )

yes, my name means uncle in filipino: Reasons why the "positive" racism, "model minority" stereotype for Asian Americans can be damaging:→


fromonesurvivortoanother:

  • Any standard that is unrealistic and homogenous is inherently damaging by creating inhuman expectations.
  • This is especially true when Asian American socio-economic status, although higher on average than other non-white groups, can actually vary hugely between…
