The world’s 85 richest people have as much wealth as the world’s 3.5 billion poorest.

This statistic was recently released in United Nations report that uses Oxfam figures. It’s also a huge wake-up call for anyone who doesn’t consider income inequality a major issue in global politics. (via micdotcom)

Income inequality is the ONLY issue of importance.

Solve that one problem, and everything else becomes easy to handle.

Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.

Well this was just beautiful

Disney movies (and others like it) taught us how to love, how to cherish life and how powerful death can be. At a young age, these were very important lessons.

House Republicans who voted against final passage of the Violence Against Women Act are taking credit for helping renew the domestic abuse legislation.

The lawmakers’ desire to have it both ways reflects the irreconcilable tension between wanting to appear on the right side of an extremely popular issue and wanting to preserve their credibility with conservative groups who vowed to punish those who voted for VAWA.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a potential Senate candidate in 2014, said in a statement that hesupported the bill because he understood “the importance of reauthorizing VAWA.”

“I supported this legislation because I know how important it is to empower women in difficult situations,” King said. “If a woman is at risk, she should know that she has a place to turn for support and assistance. I supported VAWA in 2005, 2012, and today I voted in support of the House version to see that victims of domestic violence and sexual assault have access to the resources and protection when they need it the most.”

What King didn’t mention is that he voted against House passage of VAWA. Instead he voted for a more modest Republican substitute, which failed. Had his final vote carried the day, VAWA would remain expired and its reauthorization in limbo today.

Hi! I was wondering if you or your followers have any suggestions for good novels that feature non-white protagonists and main characters, taking place in any country, culture, or time period. I just finished one about a woman in Afghanistan, and I'm currently reading one about a Chinese immigrant and another about a young girl in Iran. I am having trouble finding more diversity at the library. Do you guys have any suggestions, resources, or links to a master post that could help me? Thanks!

These are the books I read over the month of July! :) 

I waited to answer this one because we had answered a similar ask like the day before we got this one. I’m just gonna repeat again - there are TONS, millions, of books written by People of Color out there, so answering an ask like this is really hard because we’d be listing stuff forever. 

I also wanted to be cool and show off the books I read because it seems like a thing people do (also taking public transportation to job interviews all summer has its perks lol so much reading time!) I’m just gonna give a sentence or two about each book below, from left to right. I tried not to put in spoilers (most of the summary info can be found on the backs of these books):

Redefining Realness byJanet Mock (memoir) is Janet’s personal story about growing up as a Black trans girl. The book covers her childhood and young adulthood, and she shares so many of her experiences with family, environment, self love, and survival. 

!Yo! by Julia Alvarez (fiction) is about Yolanda García, a Dominican writer who is a bestseller. The book is written in the POV of her family, friends, mentors, etc., and all tell stories about Yo in different periods of her life. It’s like a follow-up to How the García Girls Lost Their Accents but can be read by itself.

Seed to Harvest by Octavia Butler (aka the Patternist series) (science fiction). My copy had four of the novels in the series, placed in chronological order of the universe: Wild Seed, Mind of My Mind, Clay’s Ark, and Patternmaster (there was a fifth, but Octavia hated it so much she refused to have it reprinted). This series basically follows the narratives and history of what humanity becomes (two warring races, one of which has telepathic powers and the other which are a hybrid of human-alien beings) and how it happens. Almost all of the central characters are Black. 

Ash by Malinda Lo (fantasy) is a retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale. Ash, the main character, is basically split between the fairy world and her reality, forced to be a servant to her stepmother. She ends up falling in love with the King’s Huntress, and she has to make all these choices about what she wants vs. her duties/promises she’s made.

Huntress by Malinda Lo (fantasy) is in the same universe as Ash, but takes place centuries before. These two girls (Kaede and Taisin) have to go on a journey with the prince to the Fairy Queen’s land to figure out why their own world is dying. They have this massive adventure and also fall in love with each other. Lo has also said that the world is inspired by Chinese and Japanese folklore. 

Followers, read anything good lately?

"Debt is a trap, especially student debt, which is enormous, far larger than credit card debt. It’s a trap for the rest of your life because the laws are designed so that you can’t get out of it. If a business, say, gets in too much debt, it can declare bankruptcy but individuals can almost never be relieved of student debt through bankruptcy." .. (Noam Chomsky)
