Immigrants. First generation.
Almost a thousand people in West Africa die from ebola and nobody bats an eyelash, yet 2 white people in the US contract it and miraculously a cure is released and given to them because they’re an “extreme circumstance.” Satire is dead and real life is a dystopian hellscape

My favorite quote. (via sleepy-bat)
If you’re going to throw out your opinion on the Central America refugee crisis but you don’t want to / aren’t going to critically examine the U.S.’s role in fueling this crisis or the U.S.’s role in the creation and spread of transnational gangs and drug demand and trafficking that the refugees are fleeing
You can sit right the fuck down.
American narcissism is telling immigrants that they should be grateful to live here, when it’s, more likely than not, some form of American interference that destabilized their home nation.
It hit me pretty hard that I no longer have any access to UNC affiliated online services. Wanted to log back onto Sakai to look up an article that talked about a particular reproductive health condition we discussed in one of my classes last semester. For the life of me, I can no longer remember its name and it is pissing me off. Someone posted a link about a health condition similar to it on facebook and it reminded me a lot about the health condition that was discussed in that article. My Sakai username and password is no longer valid, so I can’t access that article or anything else I want :(
