So it turns out that my (always going to be) baby sister is having her labour induced soon. This time next week I’m going to be an auntie and I’m currently 130 miles away from them!! :(
Hey you know what would look great on my blog?
If this post exceeds 20K I swear
You guys are not allowed to start reblogging this again no no no
Which one of you little shits keeps bringing this back
saw this on facebook and i had to post it. gave me the chills.
Why is a show like this necessary? It makes me ashamed that the presenter goes out and congratulates the people who ‘speak up’ like they should be rewarded for doing the right thing, infusing a reward-based-personality in the (more malleable) minds of people who see this.
Strive to be more like the people who were filmed, and just be nice for the sake of being nice, do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. In my honest opinion race/skin colour has nothing to do with anything! So what if you have darker skin than me, if you are a decent person then I will treat you like a decent person, and vice versa if you you treat me like a dick then I will treat you like a decent person (I’m British, we’re too polite for our own good) but I will hate you in my head. The tone of your skin only defines where your ancestors have come from and nothing about you. Like that first woman said; I wouldn’t care if you were purple!
At what point do the crochet fairies come and finish off all of my Christmas presents and leave more yarn while I’m asleep?
People might be getting their presents next xmas instead! I’m serious about this, my classes don’t finish until 5pm on the 20th and I’ve got a deadline this Monday that I only just found out about!! Why couldn’t I just have money and buy presents like normal people do?
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
