SO THIS IS A THING THAT IS HAPPENING and i wanna be a part of it
Hey hey hey hey.
Tomorrow afternoon starting around 4 we’re gonna trend #Fornever21 in protest of the Black Panther crop top Forever 21 is selling. This is a collab between thisiswhiteprivilege, whitepeoplesaidwhat, and weareallmixedup. Some good examples we’ve come up with so far:
"Colorism *image of a rainbow under it*"
"Stand your ground *image of red stilettos*"
"Stop and Frisk (me ;))"
"Ku Klux Kute"
Also within the tweets, you can include discussion points about cultural appropriation. Start coming up with ideas and stuff now so you’ve got plenty to tweet about tomorrow afternoon. Our goals are: 1) Get the gross ass shirt pulled from Forever 21. 2) Spark a conversation about cultural appropriation.
Get excited. Get pumped. Let’s make a whole lot of noise. Reblog this a couple of times between now and then so come 4pm-ish tomorrow we’ll be ready to trend it all evening.
Less than five hours until we trend this. Remember: the hashtag is #fornever21. “West Coast Panthers” was a nickname for the West Coast wing of the Black Panther Party. Removing this symbol from its cultural context and marketing it to white teenagers as vintage and trendy is appropriative and gross. Can you imagine what they would do to a person of color if we were caught wearing the Black Panther logo?
Later tonight we’ll be posting a collection of our favorite #fornever21 tweets. Get excited!
this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)
For any Muslim followers.
DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
Please Stop Feeding Bread to Waterfowl
Feeding bread to wild ducks is incredibly harmful. Bread has almost no nutrients that are useful for the duck, so they become malnourished and more susceptible to disease. Compounding the problem is that excessive bread left in the water will rot, which leads to high levels of E. coli and even botulism outbreaks. Wild ducks need to stay wild, and artificially feeding them causes them to lose their natural instincts for acquiring food.
If you want to feed captive waterfowl, consider chopped vegetables, whole grains, or fruit instead.

This cannot be emphasized enough!
my first worksheet assignment at Hogwarts (for Charms) and I get an 80?? WHY DIDN’T I DOUBLE CHECK MY ANSWERS i will never be so arrogant again an 80 is unacceptable
at least I have good marks to look forward to in Astronomy, I beasted that essay tho
(s/o and thanks to www.hogwartsishere.com for bringing you this 100% true life update)
by the way, since we’re talking about r/tumblrinaction, i just thought you should all know that they literally encourage their users to go through these tags to pick on people, so i’d be wary about tagging stuff so it appears in these tags.
as was stated before, a lot of redditors use an entry youre featured on to send you anon hate, reblog your post to unsafe people, etc. so they might find you through these tags. a good way to avoid this is to put letters/numbers/symbols after the trigger, so you could put say #ableism 890283948 or #fatphobia djflksjdfj or #racism /// (like i do!). make sure if you do this theres a space between the trigger and the letters/numbers/symbols.
if you’d like you can signal boost this so your followers know to watch out
you know how in my about it says i’m going to Hogwarts via online classes?
SO www.hogwartsishere.com EXISTS AND I AM MAKING GOOD ON THAT
literally just finished my first assignment: roughly 200 word Astronomy (ASTR-101) essay on constellations!
