You need to watch this: Reza Aslan calls out the media for generalization and bigotry when reporting on Muslims.
This is so important! just today I had to call out one of my college professors for generalizing that all afghan and Iraqis “strap bombs onto themselves because that is what they grow up to believe is acceptable.” People need to stop making generalizations, if you’re going to use your opinions as a base in an argument, they should be supported with facts, and not, quite frankly, ignorance.
netanyahu is an asshole and bill maher is an asshole lol thats what that is.
but on the real: That was probably the most mentally painful interview i’ve ever had to watch in a while, because they started with referring to a bigot “comedian”, repeated the most idiotic and incorrect statements, and then showed shots of one of the biggest terrorists of the 21st century saying a bunch of junk and then asked a rational educated person to respond, which, he did an excellent job of doing. #RezaAslan
Don’t forget that there are MEN and WOMEN who cannot live free in this country TODAY because of the color of their skin and white men STILL get away with murder, LITERALLY. #ferguson #neverforget
Women were only allowed to vote in 1920, are still treated like sexual objects and there is a 23% gap in income compared to men, the poverty level is too damn high and a crazy guy just ran into the white house and got to the green room with a knife and no one knows how.
Oh and the national debt for today is about $17,844,714,374,000.00.
and about a million other things wrong with this country.
they’re worried about people getting beheaded? well, the only difference here is that they do it with guns, in the street. and over here, we call it good old fashioned police brutality. and no one is EVER reprimanded for it. So i’m getting the sense that America is okay with young black men and women being shot for no damn reason.
Dont go trying to throw stones when you live in a glass house.
Yea I was that bored when everything was ready and prepped this morning and no customers walked in for over a half hour (probably because it was thunderstorming) and these Arab-Bollywood-gangster selfies happened also due to iOS 8’s new handy dandy self timer feature.

THANK YOU <3
oh yea and i just followed like 70 coffee blogs. bahaha.
yall im just saying. i wish people could be supportive of all my awesome ideas, dreams and plans, all the time. but, i know its not realistic…or healthy. so its a good wake up call when i get weirdo haters or haterade comments (i mean i can imagine most of them are probably even unintentional) to remember that:
1. i will never be able to keep everyone happy
2. i dont need to keep everyone happy
3. to always be true to myself and what i stand for because if i tried to keep everyone “happy” i wouldnt be me and i would just be another plastic copy of some other girl.
Oh and someone dropped these off at my studio door. I asked my friend who I thought it might be and he said it wasn’t him. So thoughtful of whoever did though. And I like how everyone knows I need frames lol.
