Jordan and I!
Jordan and I #2!
The goal is 10,000 signatures. I’d love it if everybody could not only sign it, but spread the word. I know we can do it!
For those of you who are just catching wind of what’s going, hop on in, the water’s warm! Here’s the original post where things are explained. :-) But really, you can find all the important deets by clicking the link! xx
Reblogging to get and (hopefully) keep some momentum while circulating the petition link around Tumblr! :-)
June, 1964. Black children integrate the swimming pool of the Monson Motel. To force them out, the owner pours acid into the water.
And white folk wonder why
My mom was born in ‘64, kay? So, what that means is… THIS SHIT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO AND Y’ALL NEED TO STOP ACTING LIKE THE SHIT WE TALK ABOUT IS ARCHAIC AND OLD-HAT.
my mom was still in trinidad when this happened but seriously it could’ve happened to either my aunt or uncle who were 12 and 15/16 respectively
I think photos like this need to exist, not because I like the subject matter, but because it helps immortalize events that many people want to forget ever happened (and work pretty hard to make it so). It makes us face it. I’ve seen this picture before, but don’t know all the details. I hope the children in this photo were okay.
get off of there cat! i don’t care how cute you think you look, i need to use that. oh and my little sister wants her teddy bear back too.
the look on their faces though. its like “omfg, charles. charles, charles. THE HUMAN IS WAVING. WAVE BACK, HURRY.”
I’ve posted this so many times, but the comment makes me smile.
