I am going to scroll down the eid tag & like everyone’s pretty outfits!
My eid is tomorrow :(
'it's okay because we raised money and we know it's racist and i'm not in it'
you are a motherfucking professor at a university and teacher in high school…and you honestly thought that logic was okay?
UPDATE: I got a message from her daughter saying
Did either one of you start a tweet about that picture with 6700 comments? Are you trying to get a teacher, who I know had impacts on both of you, fired!? The principal addressed my mother that there were accusations on twitter calling her racist and saying she needs to be fired??? Idk if either of you did this. And certainly you’re entitled to your opinion. And if the act of painting a face black is racist so be it. But Robin, the most accepting and liberal person I know, is not racist. She has been in tears all day. I would ask you of either if you started this tweet to take it down. And think about who you’re hurting here. My mother is not racist. And she loves her job and teaching others. She even loved teaching the both of you. So once again, think twice about your accusations.
this was posted on her timeline.
and here is a video of everyone who did blackface and their names are on the end.
She never issued an apology. She also told me and another girl to shut our liberal mouths and that everything wasn’t an issue. She backed out and started saying ‘it wasn’t a mockery.’ and that they did ‘hard work…to help others, not capitalize.’
Boost the fuck out of this. Do not let a woman who openly defends black face educate students.
I have screenshots of further comments before she deleted but they’re on my phone.
Signal Boost Granted!!! you go Victoria.
Whats the twitter linked to this
White people. This is why nobody likes you.

I said it was
Keeping it real at its finest. I respect it.
Finally some truth.
I respect him acknowledging his white privilege
using the power of privilege for good~
If you have,
Food in your fridge,
Clothes on your body,
A roof over your head,
And a place to sleep…
You are richer than 75% of the entire world.
If you have money in your wallet,
A little change,
And can go anywhere you want…
You are among the top 18% of the world’s wealthy people.
If you wake up this morning with more health than illness…
You are more blessed than the million of people who will not survive this week and die.
If you can actually ‘READ’ this message and understand it…
You are more fortunate than the 3 billion people in the world.

Life is not about complaining of pain and sorrows.
It’s about a thousand other reasons to thank ALLAH SWT!
THE WICKER WRAP!!!

Nigerian artisan ojo obaniyi from ibadan has applied his skill in weaving in an unusually creative way to advertise his business.
obaniyi, who has practiced the craft for 20 years, has covered the interior and exterior of his volkswagen pickup with raffia palm cane,
including the entire car body, the wheel caps, chairs, steering wheel and dashboard in an effort to attract attention from passersby.
obaniyi says of his handiwork:
’I wanted to prove a point that it is not only the educated elite that can make positive changes in society. we, the artisans also have talents to
effect a change and make a positive impact in the society. that is why I decided that I too must do something that will make people to recognize
me and know me across the whole world and by extension prove to the world that african and indeed the entire black race have very talented people.’
