I said a thing on Twitter.
this is a great thing
Yes. This. Yes yes yes.
literally my fav post
The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them

I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference

If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?
I’m not racist man, I’m just right-wing
Plus reverse-racism is totally a thing
It’s not about power check the definition
Slavery wasn’t an evil thing, just asset acquisition.
How come I can’t say “nigga”, it just means brotha!
And ain’t I a brotha from anotha motha?
I didn’t use the ‘er’- so its a total difference.
You blacks give good white people such hindrance :(
'We can't handle spicy foods' ? Your jokes make me sad
See, if I joked and called you a “nigger”, you’ll be mad
You black people think we are always out here to ruin your day
Look, 'not all white people', …mmkay?
I can say “nigga” ‘cause of freedom of speech
And y’all always forget what MLK preached!
White privilege ain’t real ‘cause my life is hard
If you want to stop racists, don’t play the race card
Blacks can oppress. Shoot, they’ve oppressed me
I was the only white kid and the blacks were so mean

The first time I fell in love it was not pretty
I was a canvas for a broken boy with paintbrush hands that left hues of purple and blue along my skin like a treasure map, begging and pleading for someone to find his secret and save him from himself.
The first time I fell in love I smashed all the mirrors
and sat on the floor and bled out until my hollow veins ached with the want to feel your touch and my head screamed out “idiot, idiot” but when I closed my eyes I couldn’t tell the difference between fists and lips and I wondered when I stopped being able to tell them apart.
The first time I fell in love it destroyed me
He threw words at me like daggers, hoping one would hit and nick a vein and I would bleed out at his feet. He fed me a diet of glass shards and harsh words, etching them into my skin like morse code. He took my voice, ripped it out and stuffed my lungs with cotton and gasoline; one small step and it’d ignite, burning me to ash.
The first time I fell in love, it was the last."
