He saw I was watching “Who Do You Think You Are?” (this episode’s subject is Spike Lee), and he scoffed and sat down to watch. I just knew there was going to be trouble. I was right. The show mentioned that slaves were considered 3/5 of a human, and it went sour from there
Dad: Oh shut up. Quit throwing it in my face. Me: How are they throwing it in your face? Dad: I already know this stuff, they don’t need to keep talking about it! Me: Yes they do! What happened to African Americans was horrible! We all need to know about it so it never happens again! Dad: Yeah well, they don’t need to throw it in my face. Me: Dad! They’re not throwing it in your face. Even if they were “throwing it in slave owners faces” they still wouldn’t be throwing it in YOUR face—you’re Irish, Swedish, Norwegian, and Scottish. None of our ancestors were here before the civil war! We didn’t own slaves! Dad: Whatever they need to stop bringing it up. Me: "Bringing it up"?! Dad! It happened! It was fucked up! We have to talk about it. Why don’t you get this angry when people bring up the Holocaust? Because they weren’t black? I bet you’re fine with what’s happening in Arizona. Dad: I am. You wanna know the reason you had such a hard time finding a job. Look to Mexico. Me: OH MY GOD. Dad, I was seeking jobs that require I have a good grasp on the English language. Illegal immigrants take the jobs that make them invisible, where they don’t have to deal with people. They’re not taking our jobs. Even if they were, that’s not the point, Dad. What’s happening in Arizona is unconstitutional. You can’t ask someone for their papers because you think they’re illegal. Racial profiling is against the law! Dad: Yeah well, you don’t see Mexico treating their immigrants any better. Me: I don’t care about Mexico. This is America. Like it says in The Statue of Liberty “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”! This is America, not Mexico. We don’t let that happen!
No, I’m totally fine with being in Hufflepuff. People in Hufflepuff are genuinely good.
"Students belonging to this house are known to be hard-working, friendly, loyal, and non-judgemental. It may be that due to their values, Hufflepuffs are not as competitive as the other houses, or are more modest about their accomplishments." [via]
It’s not that I’m not smart, I’m just not competitive
I work for Megan Fox. Just curious, why don't you like her?
Oh man. Oh man. So many reasons. I never watched the Transformer movies, so she didn’t bother me until she started doing interviews where she said things like “I think people are born bisexual and then make subconscious choices based on the pressures of society. I have no question in my mind about being bisexual. But I’m also a hypocrite: I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I’d never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man.”
How can you be bisexual and biphobic at the same time? For the many other reasons Megan Fox is not my cup of tea see this site.
