Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
Break thru the glass ceiling
Gorgeous girls with marley twists.
This last week has taken a toll on me. My face is breaking out so bad. Ugh. So glad I only have a day left until break.
i don’t do anything on this website except stay in my lane
find God in the darkest of nights and the smallest of lights.
this gif pisses me off
