Debunking more lies and racist misinformation about black men. Stop the ignorance and start to question why these myths exist in the first place, if not to demonize black men and promote the image of us as inherently criminal and violent and incapable of being educated.

RIP Charlotte Dawson

abbeeblu:

After years of cyber bullying, ANTM judge, Charlotte Dawson committed suicide. She had been so open and upfront about her mental issues. She was a huge advocate for depression awareness and today she lost her battle.
I hope this loss will make society realise just how much bullying hurts and that depression isn’t an attention seeking behaviour.

How many more lives have to be taken on their own account until something is done about trolls? The people who say horrible, hurtful things intending to provoke someone just for the hell of doing so, with no actual reasoning behind it. The fact that someone of the age of 47, a beautiful, successful woman, has taken their life due to low lifes with nothing better to do saying disgusting things is just wrong. To bully someone who has openly shared their struggles with depression and to ruin someones life behind a keyboard and screen is pathetic. To have to suffer the pure evil of social media, and those behind it, is not something any person should have to endure. Rest in Peace Charlotte Dawson. I pray you’ve found the peace you so not only craved but deserved.

I can’t believe Charlotte Dawson is dead, I’m in tears over this… How could society bully someone to take her life after being so open about her depression… She was found this morning in her home, after she hung herself…

Anonymous asked: What are your views on gay marriage?


Answer:

dreadingthedeathofdreams:

Marriage, to me, is all about love and commitment between two adults. It shouldn’t matter what race, sexual orientation or religion the couple may be, and it’s sad it does. Some people claim that the marriage of two people with the same gender, who love each other, is destroying the sanctity of marriage. However they seem to forget things like divorce, simply because its between a heterosexual couple. I am looking forward to the day it is legalized in Australia but in the meantime I support any couple in love, no matter the sexual orientation.
