So um……what did you think would happen?
His safety fedora wasn’t on properly.
On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.
Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.
People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.
Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.
she deserves to be re-blogged.
she’s so goddamned inspirational
this makes me want to cry

Yeah, i don’t normally make shit like this, but I feel like this needed to be said.
Because why is it okay to hate the majority on this website, but the minute someone says something about a minority (which is just as wrong), they’re bombarded by so much hate that they often delete their blogs?
Let’s look at ourselves, guys. Hating an entire group for the actions of a few, or for something that they literally cannot help (i.e. the color of their skin), isn’t helping anything, and is pushing away the equality that we often say we want so desperately.
"Tumblr hates to admit"
You made a generalization
not that I disagree with you but you
made a generalization
in a slideshow about being against generalizations
*many people on tumblr hate to admit
this is a very legit post okay? Racists are racists. Not all white people. Anyone can be racist (Ex: an asian person is racist towards hispanic people, that is RACISM, anyone can be racist). A Homophobic person is homophobic, not all christians, many are. not all. Muslims, Jews, and even Atheists can be homophobic! Sexists are sexist. Not all men are sexist, many are, not all, WOMEN can be sexist too (against men or women).
Well actually, reverse racism is not a real thing. Racism comes for a place of power and being a minority takes most of that power away. Me calling white people stupid does nothing more than hurt their feelings. Yeah it’a immature but it has no real effect. But a white person calling a minority stupid is different because it is back by years of stereotypes. Years of disenfranchisement. And exercises the inequality that still exists today. So you may say “Racism is Racism” but the power different is clearly not the same.
"Yveltal is based on the Hawk Veðrfölnir or the unnamed eagle. According to the Poetic Edda, the unnamed eagle resided at the top of the world tree Yggdrasil."
"Xerneas’s appearance is based on the four stags Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór. According to the Poetic Edda, the four stags resided in the trunk of the World Tree Yggdrasill and ate its branches and fresh shoots."
"Zygarde is based on the Níðhöggr. Níðhöggr is the the serpent from the Poetic Edda which resided at the bottom of the world tree Yggdrasill and gnawed at its roots."
