It instead teaches cruelty and disregard for life, as well as indicates your own need to be taught a lesson in responsibility.

This article is otherwise known as: Fish and Children

I thought this picture, however, should be passed around as it is the most confusing and awful thing I see in how modern society treats small animals.

This will talk about the role of children in the lives of small and large pets and how modern society treats small pets as opposed to small pets, as well as the consequences therein. Most of this is under the cut.

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

  • Me:

    This older generation pisses me off so much

  • Therapist:

    Why?

  • Me:

    Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.

  • Therapist:

    And?

  • Me:

    And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers

  • Therapist:

    Touche
