when i was seven going into the second grade the week before school i psyched myself out and made myself nervous and forgot the alphabet so i stood in front of a mirror for 3 hours crying reciting the alphabet OVER AND OVER AND OVER and 12 years later i’m still trying to figure out how that happened

"I’m a traffic cop. It’s a job. Somebody’s got to do it. I don’t even represent myself when I’m working. If I was representing myself, I’d let everyone off with a warning. I represent a system. Did I design the system? No. I just enforce it. It’s not for me to decide the system. We elect the people who decide the system. When I write a ticket, everyone tells me a reason that they don’t deserve it. If I gave a warning to everyone with a reason, I wouldn’t give any tickets, and the system wouldn’t work. I don’t get any joy by giving a ticket. And I’m not upset if you beat it in court. It’s not personal. It’s my job."

“My grandmother always told me: ‘It doesn’t matter if you’re crippled, blind, or crazy. All this world cares about is how you survive. As long as you don’t do drugs or go to jail, you’re gonna be fine.’”“What do you mean by: ‘The world only cares about how you survive?’”“The only thing people care about is if you’re working, and if you’re paying your taxes. I worked for the city for six years. During the time that I was working, I was Mr. Matthew Phillips. The moment that I wasn’t able to work anymore, I became a social security number.’”

This is not okay. We aren’t being racist either, your being racist, making fun of of for having dreads because of the COLOUR of our SKIN. Its mean. And we are not stealing culture, we are inspired by it. Besides its just a hair style. You don’t have to bully white people for having dreads. We aren’t doing anything wrong? whitepeoplestealingculture Does anyone agree?

- JESS

White people need to shut the actual fuck up.

hair look like wet dog and yall still wanna keep playing around with styles not meant for your hair texture
