The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

I probably reblogged in the past, but here it is again in that case.

Hello! So I absolutly love your Groot art, and so does my wee daughter. I'm making her and my son some t-shirts this week (since we cant find an Elsa one for little boys) I was wondering if you would mind if I used the picture for her shirt? If you do mind, its no biggie. I wont use it. I just thought I'd ask. Anywho, I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful art!-Amber

Hello =] Thank you so much for asking! As long as you aren’t mass producing them for profit or claiming credit, I don’t mind if you want to use it for a personal thing ^_^ I’d love to see pictures when you’re done and thank you for all the art love! : D






Apparently, this was the guy who was deported for being too handsome.

Suddenly, I understand.

Pretty sure it’s not just women they should have been ‘worried about’ not being able to—what was the wording? Control themselves?

That guy is hot.

I’m straight as an arrow and a Jew and I’d let him do things to me so vile they’d make Moses rise from the dead and punch me in the throat.

At which point, Moses would take a look at that guy and ask to join in.

this post is wild

Hi! I just wanted to let you know I wrote a one-shot for your piece featuring Bucky and Rocket ("I Need This"). I have a link to my FanFic account on my blog- my username on there is Wings Of Sanguine, and the story is called "Silver Suede" (since Peter's fave song is Blue Suede and Bucky's arm is made of metal.) Anyway, I hope you like it!

Ohmigoshohmigoshohmigosh!! I am always so honored to hear of my art inspiring other bits of creative happiness! It was so awesome thank you!!! °˖ ✧◝(○ ヮ ○)◜✧˖ ° *dances happily to the Awesome Mix*
