    One misconception outsiders have about Haiti, or any so-called “third world” country, is that poverty is all there is. Reality tells a different story. People live, die, get married, lose their virginity, graduate high school and college, dream and strive in Haiti. There are, in fact, many possibilities.

    Haitians are humans, not symbols of poverty. But you shouldn’t have to go to Haiti to find that out.

    Just your daily reminders:

    • Racists are a problem
    • White people are not
    • Homophobes are a problem
    • Straight people are not
    • Transphobes are a problem
    • Cis people are not
    • Sexists are a problem
    • Men are not

    And most importantly,

    • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

    lmfaoooooooooooooo Yes!

    Lmao!
    How can I be racist if I work with blacks
    How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
    I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.

    i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
    i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
    the west lost its way with no room for clemency
    If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

    i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
    my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
    plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
    don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…

    I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
    Living in the past and white people blaming
    I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
    If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?

    Independence day speeches are a dime a dozen in our country. This time, however, it was different. I have never been more satisfied with a speech by the Prime Minister on the occasion of India’s Independence day. 

    The PM spoke at length on many issues that our nation is plagued by. However, his speech was also remarkable for the announcement of some of the solutions that we will attempt, to mitigate these problems.

    Here are a few excerpts:

    • Politicians haven’t made this nation, parties haven’t made this nation, governments haven’t made this nation. Instead it is the farmers, scientists and common people who have built this nation
    • I want to ask parents, when daughters turn 11 or 14, they keep a tab on their movements. Have these parents ever asked their sons where they have been, who they have been meeting? Rapists are somebody’s sons as well! Parents must take the responsibility to ensure that their sons don’t go the wrong direction
    • Message to Naxals: Let’s abhor violence and walk the path of peace
    • India’s sex ratio is 1000 boys for 940 girls. Who creates this disparity? Don’t fill your coffers at the altar of the mother’s womb. People feel that sons will take care of them when they are old. But I have seen aged parents in old-age homes or single daughter taking care of old parents.
    • We are rolling out a Jan Dhan Yojana that will connect the poor with bank accounts. They will be given a debit card. Every account holder will be provided with Rs 1 lakh insurance
    • From automobile to pharmaceutical to satellite to plastic, I am telling the world, ‘Come, Make in India’
    • You may wonder what kind of PM talks of toilets and cleanliness from the ramparts of the Red Fort. But I have come from a poor background; I know the situation on the ground
    • To this end, starting October 2, on Gandhi Jayanti, we set a four year target to bring about a change. MPs must use their MPLAD funds to set up toilets in schools; so should corporates
    • Many programmes are running in the names of PMs and other leaders. Today, I announce a Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. Let each MP adopt a village and take care of its sanitation, education and other needs. Make model villages
    • I can assure you. If you work 12 hours, I will work 13. I am not your Pradhan Mantri, but your Pradhan Sevak
    • To our SAARC neighbors: Let’s give up fighting each other and instead work to ensure that we are a force to reckon with

    ———-

    Best wishes to India on her independence day. May our hearts and effort prevail.
