The usual teenage rant about how I can't wait to get out of Rhode Island, a state too small to entertain my adventure-seeking self. The beaches are nice and all but I'd like to go live on my own in a city and have time to take long walks and lots of pictures, thanks.
Every year white people add 100 years to how long ago slavery was. I’ve heard educated white people say, ‘slavery was 400 years ago.’ No it very wasn’t. It was 140 years ago…that’s two 70-year-old ladies living and dying back to back. That’s how recently you could buy a guy.

Slavery in the territory that is now the United States lasted more than 330 years. We will be 330 years removed from slavery in the year 2195.(via fishingboatproceeds)
