Aang deals with cultural appropriation - (x)

As usual, we have an sjw post full of notes and an inability to tell the whole story. I mean, why mention something that could invalidate your post in the first place?

You forgot, OP, to mention that Aang got mad and was at a time in his mentality where he thought that the four nations should remain seperate and should not mix. (That’s racist/nationalist, remember?) It was Katara who had to remind him that, if that were true, they couldn’t be together.

Aang later realizes that he was wrong and being fucking selfish. And guess what? He goes on to not only accept them, but also go as far as welcoming them into his culture and teach them about it.

except aang is trying to revive his culture and poc are trying to stop white people from stealing theirs??? this addition is a false equivalency made by an anti sjw and i expect better from you all to realize this

h0odrich:

aversion of responsibility for their actions, usually redirecting blame on you, often for ‘being too sensitive’, belittling your feelings, use of fear to manipulate situations, threats of violence against you or them, repeated false apologies and repeated actions that they’ve apologized for, making you feel guilty because ‘they’re struggling to do their best’ but it’s usually at your expense, completely rejecting the claims of the aforementioned and telling you that ‘they are more than a textbook definition’

Homosexuality is unnatural! It says so in this book where snakes talk, people come back from the dead, a guy walks on water, and a virgin has a baby.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
