    The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

    and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human

    India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

    After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

    It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

    a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)

    That’s exactly the appropriate response.

    15 questions white people will never have to ask themselves

    Many white people may never truly understand why incidents like the Michael Brown shooting infuriate blacks and other people of color — even when it’s clear that race plays a large, looming role in how the situation snowballed to the 18-year-old’s death.

    This is in part because white people can move through daily life without constantly thinking about how their race will be perceived.

    Suddenly you’re 21 and you’re screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good

  13. God. I know everyone complains about how they don’t know how to be an adult, but today the reality of that hit me.

    -I got a $95 bill from my doctor’s office because my parents haven’t paid off their insurance deductible. (Or I used up the available deductible? I don’t really know how insurance works.)

    -The minute I walked in the door, I had to fix our router and modem because my mom didn’t know how. 

    -I still have forty pages of The Federalist Papers to read before class tomorrow, and my lit professor still hasn’t uploaded the reading we are supposed to do before tomorrow’s class.

    I am feeling so underprepared and so low on time but I don’t even know what I can do about it. I’m feeling in over my head.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

You can’t work fast food without being monitored on the job. Seriously, guys, wake up.

I work in leisure and I’m on camera pretty much 24/7
