its name is the University of al-Qarawiyyin

the woman’s name was Fatima al-Fihri

failing to mention the names contributes to the erasure of the accomplishments of people, and especially women, of colour throughout history

once again: her name was FATIMA AL-FIHRI

"…and is sometimes referred to as the oldest university, although some scholars dispute whether the term can be properly applied historically to institutions outside the European model” - wikipedia

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

I’m going to vomit
where the fuck is our president

Fetishization of Lao women. Because we are “valued" for our: 

  • "Exotic" looks.
  • Supposedly traditional values. 
  • Docile and gentle mannerisms.
  • Very good with tasks such as cleaning, child-bearing, etc.
  • Because they think we won’t fight back. 

How can somebody, especially a foreigner (and even a Lao men), even try to understand a Lao woman as if she is a special specimen of an animal? Or how Lao women’s bodies (even Lao children) are used for the sex tourism industry, constantly violated and abused? And how half of tourists and expats that arrive in Laos only came for our women since their “American” ladies, etc. are too “unmanageable” and “newfangled”? Are we merely trophy wives? Your sex dolls? Your punching bags? We are not for sale. We are not for your disgusting fantasies
