Any updates on Ferguson? Are they still protesting? Has there been any progress?

Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

  • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
  • Honest social commentary
  • Targeted to the college age demographic
  • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
  • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

  • White people calling it racist
  • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist
Fuck white people and what they think.

[trigger warning: sexual assault, rape]

Wagatwe Wanjuki was sexually assaulted by another student while attending Tufts University. But instead of punishing her attacker, the school asked her to leave.

Wanjuki, 27, is the woman behind the widely trending Twitter hashtag #SurvivorPrivilege.

According to Huffington Post Black Voices, Wanjuki took to Twitter shortly after the June 6 publication of George Will’s Washington Post editorial in which he decried the Obama administration’s focus on campus sexual assault and suggested that being a survivor of sexual assault has become “coveted status that confers privileges.”

Annoyed by Will’s disregard for the reality of sexual assault survivors, Wanjuki responded with these tweets.

Wagatwe is awesome, and she also has a ton of debt from her time at Tufts that she’s trying to pay off while she’s finishing up her degree elsewhere. If you’re able to donate, I can hardly think of a more worthy person to redistribute resources to: http://www.gofundme.com/a7m0sk

YES! Help Wagatwe pay off her loans!
