senorganjito said: what would you like me to do? i'm sorry if i sound really useless, but i honestly just don't know where to start :/
Of course you don’t sound useless.
1. There is a master post recently put on this blog that you refer to with a lot of small action things you can do
2. KEEP TALKING ABOUT THIS. Keep tweeting. Keep up the vines. Keep up the photos with our hands up. Instagram, Facebook, whatever your platform we need to keep the narrative ours and not whatever CNN is doing.
3. If you can, donate. If you can’t tell as many people that you know that they can help Ferguson by donating.
4. Find our if there is any local organizing wherever you are. If there isn’t find some friends and family to create awareness via photos, videos, rally.
5. Keep in mind you don’t have to make a lot of noise for you to be useful and necessary to the revolution. We are all just snowflakes in an avalanche. Just. Stay. Woke.
For some of us who grew up in Latino families, anti-blackness was firmly instilled in our minds from a young age

“Pride” season is upon us, and it’s no secret, except perhaps to white people, that gay pride parades are very white, hollow things. They usually take place in “gayborhoods,” which are usually affluent communities predominated…

The fact that trans women have just been completely booted out of this conversation on police brutality smfh…
In 2008, a black trans woman was severely beaten by police and was preparing to sue the Memphis Police Department. She was killed execution style shortly after and no one has yet to be arrested.. Her name was Duanna Johnson. Remember her name…

There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state. The other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

Daniel Radcliffe answers 73 questions with Vogue Magazine
This is a starter list I made with people in mind who A) Don’t have any makeup, and/or B) Have not had access to makeup before. Makeup is expensive, and unfortunately, even this list is beyond what people can comfortably spend. However, for the same price of a palette (most of which will set you back $50+), I’ve compiled a start-to-finish shopping list that includes everything from the makeup to the tools to the cleaning products.
Below the cut is a full list of products + links, a dupe list (most if not all of these items are dupes for high end brands like MAC, NARS, and Make Up For Ever), and a coupon code. Note that for this cart, I am using a current promotion on the E.L.F website; If you are not able to make this order before the promotion expires, don’t worry, because E.L.F has several similar sales every month!
[Also, a quick note: Everything on this list is from E.L.F, one of the few drugstore makeup brands that is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They also have the highest concentration of high-end dupes. The site/their international sites ship to several countries, but in some cases, it would be less expensive to order through a local online drugstore beauty supplier/on ebay/have a friend in the US ship it to you. I’m not affiliated with E.L.F, I’m just a fan]
