Indians [Native Americans] deserve to not have water rights on their own lands because they’re all drunks anyway.

Anonymous asked: My parents never gave me any money. In fact, I moved out my senior year. I'm about to start college with a full ride scholar ship to a decent school because I took hard classes and got all A's. It is possible. In fact, I find it offensive that you don't think people like me can have success.

Piss off, I got a full ride too, doesn’t mean I could afford shit like notebook paper, and food, doesn’t mean I could afford shit like warm clothes, or clothes that fit when I became so skinny, and borderline anorexic, from not being able to eat. I haven’t even fucking finished because even when you get a full ride, even when the university tried to cover you and get you to graduate shit happens. I got raped, and my grandparents fucking died, because a fucking doctor didn’t read what my grandpa was allergic to and my grandma couldn’t afford to get her infected tooth treated and died of septic shock. I didn’t have finances to cover shit like therapy or meds, I’ve been off my meds since and now I’m extremely in debt from medical bills because I have kidney stones and sometimes you can very literally die if you don’t go into the ER because of them, and I had to withdraw because at the end of the term I was sick, anorexic, depressed, and traumatized, now I owe my university 10k before I can fucking transfer somewhere in the state I got stuck in due to wanting to be at a funeral of those I loved. 

I got straight fucking As, all across the board, which is why I ended up withdrawing because I was afraid of fucking up my GPA and losing everything, in the end I lost quite a lot anyway. So good for fucking you, you’re a piece of shit anomaly, so am I. What the fuck does this prove for the majority of people that get fucked over by the education system, and the finance system. What the fuck does this prove to anyone. That you made it? I don’t give a single fuck. Talk to me after you finish college you little shit. And tell me why first generation students have a more difficult time completing college at all let alone on time, or are you even first generation I don’t even give a shit, you don’t know what you’re talking about and you’re about to enter a cold reality.

be-0kay-darling asked: Your "what can I do with an anthropology degree" post was super helpful!! Thank you so much for that. I can find better information from from fellow tumblr blogs than most professors I talk to!!

You’re so welcome!

I also found that my professors were vague about what career paths there are for anth degrees-besides doing research ir becoming a prof.

I myself work in business and have found anth to be very useful when dealing with the public and upper-management.

“But we are not here concerned with hopes or fears, only with the truth as far as our reason allows us to discover it. I have given the evidence to the best of my ability; and we must acknowledge , as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his godlike intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system - with all these exalted powers - Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.”

It’s that time of year again.
Just say no to racist costumes people.
Blackface is racist.
Dia de Los Muertos “costumes” are racist
Costuming off of someone else’s culture is racist.
Do your part in making this Halloween season enjoyable for everyone!
