BUT THIS DESERVES A CAPTION LINKING TO THE SOURCE.
This is from Hyperbole and a Half, an amazing webcomic ran by a woman named Allie Brosh. It’s the source of the “all the things meme” (not that she planned that) and also just a flawless comic. For a couple of years, Allie was the artist/author of hilarious, flawlessly relatable comics. Then she disappeared for several months (like, almost a year). People started to wonder and worry. Then bam, she posted something called Adventures in Depression. It was…the most heartbreaking, funny, relatable, sad, beautiful thing I may have ever read on the internet. Then she disappeared for over a year and showed back up to post Adventures in Depression Part 2, where these panels come from.
What makes Hyperbole and a Half so amazing is that Allie is an idol for a lot of people. She was a funny, sweet, quirky, dorky young woman figuring life out just like all of us—and she fell into a depression like some of us do. What makes Allie so special is that she wrote about it. She fucking delved bravely into her story, her illness, and she talked about it. She didn’t set out to be an inspiration but her Adventures in Depression comics are literally the best way I have ever seen someone describe depression (and I frequently direct people there if they ask “what’s it like” or “why not just be happy” etc.) Allie’s so real about it, and she talked about it in such a real, relatable way. She doesn’t ignore it or hide it or sugarcoat it, though I’m sure it’s extremely hard for her to have mustered up the might to talk about this demon.
I dunno, I’m rambling. But just…seriously…do yourself a huge favor and read her comics. I just feel like they deserve more than being a random funny sad-true post on tumblr without a source.

This is why I have absolutely no patience for white men complaining about how their long hair isn’t socially acceptable—Native men were banned from having their hair long on threat of death, and for Native peoples, long hair has cultural significance that goes beyond the typical white dude’s aesthetic interest in growing his hair out. Asian men also forcibly had their hair chopped off (re: Chinese in California, for example), and there’s a long history of stigma against men with afros; for MOC to have their hair grown out is, while an aesthetic choice, also a cultural choice and in many cases can be seen as part of the day-to-day struggle against racism and colonialism. Long hair just does not carry that meaning for white men, and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna sit there and listen to them complain about how marginalized they are because they choose to have long hair because they think it looks cool (and let’s face it: they’re bitching because women don’t wanna date them—which could be for any number of reasons, or they’re whining about other more wealthy and powerful white men not taking them seriously; I don’t give a fuck about any of those struggles).
Not to mention the fact that white men created the very same system of sexist heteropatriarchy which defined long hair as feminine and made it socially unacceptable to the general populace in the first place. You don’t get to systematically destroy and marginalize an entire gender, assign that gender narrow physical characteristics and ideals of beauty, reappropriate and reuse those beauty ideals (usually feeding from racist romanticized colonial ideals of Nature and indigenous peoples anyways), and then complain because people don’t like your choice of hair style, like somehow you, the white dude, could ever be marginalized in any context.
omg i needed to see this post about long hair :c

The Legend of Korra Art Book,
Pages 10 - 17 for Book 1
[All the text I tried to type out, past the cut. (Things in brackets) are usually stuff I couldn’t read/look up properly.] [By the way, it’s implied that pages 8 and 9 have a spread painting.]
Can’t wait for this book! :-D
So you can be proud of being black, hispanic, or asian, but you can’t be proud to be white? Wtf is wrong with society?
white people are behind the worst genocides in history what your sus ass got to be proud of? the invention of graham crackers?
idk pretty sure we invented toilets or something
bitch we invented the soap to clean your filthy asses dont talk shit
Actually, white people invented the following;
Theory of Evolution
First one’s in Space
First one’s on the Moon
The theory of Natural Selection
The Jet Engine
The discovery of DNA
The discovery of the Atom
The discovery of Cells
And yes, a white person did happen to invent the graham cracker.
If you want to cling to every invention that white people are responsible for throughout history as if it’s some sort of accomplishment of your own, then you should also accept responsibility for all the disgusting things that white people have done, correct? You can’t just claim the things that make you look good and disregard the history that makes you look bad. Take it all or leave it all.
Geography- The oldest known world maps date back to Islam in the 9th Century B.C.
Automobile- automobiles were base on chariots created by the Indo-Iranians.
Electricity- Nobody invented electricity, pendejo estupido. Electricity is a natural phenomena.
Computers- Computers were based on the abacus, created by the ancient Sumerians.
The Piano- The piano is based on string instruments created in ancient Mesopotamia.
The Wormhole- Einstein discovered this, and given that Einstein was a dedicate member of the NAACP and called racism America’s “worst disease”, I’m sure that he would not appreciate you using his discoveries to promote white supremacy.
Theatre- The earliest recorded theatrical event dates back to 2000 BCE with the “passion plays” of Ancient Egypt.
The Jet Engine- This is based on rockets invented by the Chinese in the 13th Century
The Discovery of the Atom- Atomism dates back to India during the 6th Century BCE
The Camera- Photographic cameras were a development of the Camera Obscura, a device dating back to the ancient Chinese.
The U.S. Constitution- The earliest known code of law dates back to the ancient Mesopotamians. The American Constitution is based on the Iroquois “Great Code of Peace”. And given that the original U.S. Constitution was used to enslave and murder thousands of people, maybe you shouldn’t be so proud of it.
Democracy- Based on the Sanghas of India during the 6th Century BCE
Republics- See above.
Nice try, white person. Practically everything you guys invented comes from PoC
Have fun with your Graham Crackers tho
