This is me and one of my good friends.
Just so we’re all clear on what we just read. Black people make up 22% of the poor but only 14% of the government benefits. Meaning, 8% of poor Black people are not taking government benefits when they need them.
While, white people make up 42% of the poor but receive 69% of the government benefits. Meaning, there are white people who are classified as middle class who are receiving government benefits.
…but welfare queens and stuff.
LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT!
Black people make up 22% of the poor BUT only 14% of the government benefits.
White people make up 42% of the poor BUT receive 69% of the government benefits.
This needs to go viral.
This is essential piece of information revealing racial bias AGAINST Black people in receiving government benefits.
Never again do I want to hear about White people living in poverty.
Never again do I want to hear about Black people living on government benefits.
Reblog this. Over and over again. POST IT ON EVERY SOCIAL MEDIA SITE WHERE YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT.
Anonymous asked: The tweets are FAKE.
Whoa. Chill out. I figured that out after a little more digging.
Anonymous asked: friendly reminder that Yahoo is going to let Tumblr continue to operate as an independent business, and that they're not going to do anything to the site (◡‿◡✿)
I keep seeing a ton of Yahoo tweets about changing the site. I have no idea if it’s legit or not, so it’s just a little bothersome.
Fucking hell. I just googled a bunch of shit on Yahoo acquiring tumblr and how they “hope to attract a younger and more trendy audience”
Younger? More trendy?
You mean the shithead kids that are running around screaming “SWAGGA” and talking back to their parents like it’s cool????
This place has been so so safe for me. I’ve met so many wonderful people and if Yahoo fucks with that I’m going to be a little more than upset.
Forgetting to take your bra off when you get into bed and then having to do some fucking weird exorcism move to get it off and stay under your blankets.
Like I don’t even have a gif for this that sucked so much.
