MICHELLE OBAMA, at the DNC. (via inothernews)
LAST TWO SENTENCES GOT ME ON FIRE. To me, that’s THE basis of most PoC cultures. It’s all about giving back, sharing, connections, community—alla those buzz words. When Michelle says it, I believe it. If Ann Romney says it, it’s horseshit at best. Why? Because she’s white, and white/western cultures have ALWAYS been about “self-reliance,” “striking out on your own,” “YOU BUILT IT ALL BY YOURSELF,” and “bootstraps.” All those words and phrases? Read SELFISH. Read CARELESS. Read THOUGHTLESS.
Especially when you realize they didn’t build shit and then when everything was built they shut everyone else out.
