if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure
if you had to take time off school you are not a failure
if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure
your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them
Elena Chernyshova - Days of Night - Nights of Day (2012-13)
“Days of Night - Nights of Day is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170,000.
The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.
Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.”

Fuck the police. Especially fuck the Auburn PD
"Misty was afraid of the Auburn PD officers with good reason," he said. "In an incident prior to her disappearance, the Auburn PD came to pick up Misty on an involuntary transport to the ER. She was cuffed and placed in a police car. Some of the officers began to taunt and tease her while she was in the car. Because it was dark they couldn’t see that we, her family, were outside our apartment just across the street witnessing this behavior.
"They were tapping on the window making faces at her. Misty was crying and she told them, ‘You can’t treat me like this. I’m a movie actress and I will use my connections to expose you.’ Then another officer walked up to her asked, ‘Are you a movie star? Then why don’t [you] complain to George Clooney!’"
Racist, ableist, violent pigs
Remember her name and face.
Too many Native women don’t get their stories shared. Too many Native women are forgotten.
Remember her. Remember them.
Rest in peace, Misty.

I literally crave affection. It’s not about sex. I crave somebody to cuddle with me, and to lay their head on my lap. I crave kisses, holding hands and running my thumb across theirs. Just looking at someone and thinking “how did I get this lucky”.
People who dismiss whites as being “cultural appropriators” forget that part of OUR culture is to explore, to learn as much as we can about the alien, the strange, and try to understand it. And then once we do, we debate and share, so that group thought can help clear up some of the rough edges. This is why Europe explored and colonized the world, not some “privilege”, and it’s why all those of non-European descent in Western countries benefit from such a society, one that tries to continue rather than remain as it always has been. They joined us and melded into our culture. So I’d really appreciate it if people would stop looking down on us for our curiosity and delight in exploration, in learning and trying and experiencing.
man, all those poc living in Western countries sure are benefiting from white culture! institutionalized racism is SUCH a blast! and yeah, all those non-westerners definitely decided to join up with whites, they totally weren’t raped and enslaved by whites! and they certainly didn’t have their own cultures forcibly taken from them and destroyed! so glad that debate and group thought made it so that those ‘rough edges’ of imperialist entitlement, greed, and complete ignorance didn’t literally cause genocide.
nothing like the good ol’ classic White culture of literally carving up continents, creating the modern slave trade, creating a system of races to help verify and legitimize white supremacy and to prove why dark skinned people were sub-human, the decimation of entire cultures, forcing immigrants and natives to abandon their culture and take ‘proper’ names and literally force their children to be more ‘white’. Also the destruction of native books and history, bringing back black and indigenous folks in chains to be put on display in zoos for your white ass ancestors to oggle and laugh at, , the fucking Aboriginal people were allowed to be kept *as pets* by white Australians. What about all of the desecration and theft of important artifacts that are *still* sitting in rich white museums to oggle??? What about the continuation of the old systems of racism into this week, continuing to destroy native landmarks and minimize native rights and all of the native women who have disappeared these past few months?? The continuation of exotifying and marketing cultures that whites seem to feel they have ownership over, the prison industrial complex, the excessive police brutality and harassment of brown and black bodies. But you’re right, this IS just white culture, but sweetie, it’s not ‘joining you’ or any kind of consensual agreement when you have no fucking choice. Get your fucking racist imperialist genocide friendly ass together and actually open a legit history book. Google things. Look up ‘slavery’ and ‘western genocide’. Go for it.
