I got into Tuskegee University tho! I’m so proud of myself! it’s not Spelman but its definitely reassurance that I can make it into a university!

I’ve considered that school after Spelman. But it’s in the middle of nowhere in…

@blxck-since-97 I’m sending mine on the 19th. I’m scared I won’t be accepted because my transcripts aren’t as competitive, course wise. But their admissions are holistic so we never know. My service essay is about 800 words. Are you applying EA or ED?

DUDE. SHE MANAGED TO GET A FUCKING 75% SURVIVAL RATE OUT OF A DISEASE WITH A 70% DEATH RATE.

She is so fucking impressive. Like imagine you’re trying to stop your entire family from dying while not catching anything yourself. Fatu Kekula is a goddamn inspiration.

As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?

I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.

But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?

do not let white academia fool you into thinking that

  • the greatest authors that were and ever will be are white men
  • every great philosopher came out of europe
  • mathematics and science were at their highest point when used by white men
  • the most beautiful city in the world is paris
  • colonialism was a golden age
  • europe is the pinnacle of civilization

Update pakistan; 
1. They are stopping people from giving blood to protestors who are bleeding out
2. They are forcing doctors not to report number of deaths and injuries
3. They have hit people with real steel bullets instead of rubber one’s
4. They are sending severely injured people home without giving them proper treatment
