"There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start."
CULTURAL GENOCIDE: Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)
I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off.

is this from something because all i can think is rival cheerleaders from different schools meet during a game and fall in love but then Romeo and Juliet shit goes down, nobody even cares that youre in love with another girl Jessica we’ve always known you were gay, BUT WHY IS SHE FROM OUR RIVAL FUCKING SCHOOL???
THEY’RE WEARING EACH OTHERS SCHOOL COLORS ON THEIR SOCKS TOO CUTE IM DYING
"I like beginnings because they’re so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there’s always more to come."
