THIS. IS. NOT. OK.

Cultural appropriation = Cultural genocide.

White people: PLEASE do not do this. You have no idea how offensive it is to PoCs…

Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.
I am not Indian. I have no ancestors from India.
I am a mixed race First Nations person whose history is rooted in the Dene people from Canada and the Aztec people in El Salvador.
Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M

While you’re at it don’t dress up as pirates either because pirates are not a costume. Pirates are not a trend. Pirates are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. 
I say we just ban costumes over all so we don’t offend any group of people, because we all know; If you are offended, you’re always in the right.

Case 237618361318 of white people not getting it. - Mod M

A history lesson you won’t get in school

It’s bad enough when people claim you won’t learn this stuff in school when we all learned about it in school, but the damn gif graph is sourced to a fucking school in the gif itself.

Michael Vick got a 32 game suspension for hosting dog fights.

You get a, minimum, four game suspension for marijuana.

Nowadays in the the league, if they even THINK you hit someone with the intent to hurt them on field, you’re looking at a five game suspension and a fine.

But Ray Rice can literally knock out his fiancé and he gets a two game suspension and commentators saying “she shouldn’t have provoked” him and that “he’s really a great guy”.
