"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything."

Dedicated to all my fellow retail employees

All of these are oh so painfully true.

I used to work at McDonalds and literally every single one of them has happened to me. Ergh.

Price tag: “2 for $3”
Customer: “so can I get 1 for $1.50?”

Fuck the customer

neil-gaiman:

…participate in the ice bucket challenge, of course. When your wife challenges you, that’s the wisest course of action.

So the cops lied about the tear gas (tried to say it was only smoke bombs, despite people’s eyes and throat burning). Anther person has been shot. Many people have been arrested.

this takes ten minutes to do: cut tomatoes and put them in a pot with some water and a bouillon fish cube (or veggie cube), put the heat on so it starts to boil. Then crack a couple of eggs into a small bowl and stir them until they are clear. Now; drip small amounts of the egg blend into the boiling water - they will stiffen into egg lumps (lumps that the chinese call egg flowers). The last thing you do is adding rice noodles into the soup with some chili pepper and wait until they are soft. You can also put some vinegar on it before you eat it, but not too much. :) 

EDIT: my friend Xin told me I should have fried the tomatoes in some oil first to make the colour of the soup more red, which is more typical for chinese ramen. Next time :)
