Aang deals with cultural appropriation - (x)

People need to stop reblogging this without the rest of the comic :^)

Part 1: Aang has a negative reaction to people who mistakenly hurt his feelings but had good intentions.

Part 2: Aang calms down and acknowledges that those people’s intentions were good and instead of being upset offers to educate and inform those people and SHARES his culture.

Good message there.

Uh no, not “instead of being upset”. He gets rightfully upset. Then realizes the other airbenders are dead and he can make more little airbenders. This is not some “better” alternative to being upset.

It is an OPTION.

You don’t HAVE to share your culture with the people appropriating it.

You do not have to educate people.

You do not exist to be someone’s teacher and to lift up others, especially not people bastardizing your culture.

My college roommate’s little brother had been diagnosed with a form of cancer originating at the nose that quickly spread to other vital parts of the body just about a year ago.

He has been fighting stage 4 cancer for quite some time, now. Occasionally I’d ask my roommate about his brother as he’d frequently skip class to drive over to the hospital for his brother’s chemo sessions, or to find alternative solutions to his cancer and each time I’d only notice the incredible amount of patience he displayed. He’s easily one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life.

They haven’t been able to find legitimate treatments that could properly work against the cancer in his body. The family is trying hard to raise the necessary funds to get him a treatment in Mexico that has demonstrated high success rates, but has had difficulty doing so.

If you’re able to, please find it in your hearts to chip in. At the very least, please keep him in your prayers InshaAllah.

Stepping on Jordans in the hood prank

this is the cardinal sin you know if u step on some jays you gonna get your ass whooped, and they need to stop coming in the hood with this bs, im sorry but the last one has me screamingggg i was dyinggg these guys are idiots

In flatbush though lmaoo they gone get stabbed or jumped

death wish

This isn’t a joke, You don’t do shit like this.

these niggas was in brooklyn on labour day??? naaaw son

This shit is sicking now they physically touching people but black people are seen as wrong for getting upset because some dumb ass white boy wanted to destroy they property for a laugh

and so many people are going to criticize the Black people for being “overly sensitive, materialistic, and violent” like these boys got called the fuck out and they’re still using it.

white people love the phrase “in the hood” why can’t whites just keep to themselves and go film these pranks “in a Starbucks” because they’re gonna get killed one day for doing this shit and then the people getting “pranked” are gonna pay consequences for white people treating them like animals and ~*~fun experiments~*~ for YouTube

and the thing is they’re not white. i think they’re either middle eastern or nb latino?

I believe they’re Arab

Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

Today in Black people invented everything you hold near and dear…


Reclaim “nude.” It doesn’t just have to be about pinks and colours that complement light skin tones, find the right neutral for you.

Sweater Weather (Acoustic) | The Neighbourhood

i like the acoustic better than the original. it was how i imagined how this song should’ve sounded the first time I heard it.

both are perfect

they’re both perfect but this one is so better in my opinion

وأصحى من الليل
.وأبعت روحي تصحيك
And I wake up in the middle of the night,
Longing for you
And sending you my soul to wake you up.
