Are you talking down to me because I’m a young Latina? Does my sex and the color of my skin really offend you, sir? Things I wish I could ask the “rich” rude white men (via muchacha-mala)

You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.
Every time I see this photo, I seethe.

I guess my feminism and my race are the same thing to me. They’re tied in one to another, and I don’t feel an alliance or an allegiance with upper-class white women. I don’t. I can listen to them and on some level as a human being I can feel great compassion and friendships; but they have to move from their territory to mine, because I know their world. But they don’t know mine. Sandra Cisneros, Chicana Feminist Thought (via okbesko)

Hell yes

Virgo are one of the signs most fond of reading, often drawn to literature or journalism. This stems from their ruling planet of Mercury, the planet of learning and communication.
