Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

What is it?
At any time on Thursday, April 24 groups of three or more across the country will gather for conversations on mental health. After texting “start” to 89800, groups will receive polling questions, discussion topics, and facilitation suggestions via text message from Creating Community Solutions. No personal information will be stored.
Why do it?
Mental health is a critical issue in the US, but it is surrounded by stigma and misconceptions. It is a topic that can be difficult to give a voice to. Join Text, Talk, Act to have a candid dialogue about actions we can take to strengthen mental health on campuses and in communities. Polling results will be incorporated into the Creating Community Solutions report to policymakers.
Even if you can’t participate, please reblog this to spread the word.
The effort to end the stigma on mental health is personally important to me. I’d like to give everyone who participates something in thanks, but I can’t. Send me an ask if you decide to participate, and I’ll choose a winner for a $50 Amazon gift card with a random number generator on the next day, Friday April 25. If you’re chosen I’ll just ask for a picture of your or your friend’s message log to prove you did it. Just send me an ask and text in on Thursday to enter.

*gordon ramsay voice* what the fuck is this
The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.
Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)
It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.
I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit.
Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.
Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.
"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)
Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
