Brown Girls in the Rain

This blog is a safe space for women of color. We blog about racism and ignorance we ourselves have experienced and skin color related social issues happening elsewhere in the world.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.

Love Moko. Her song Your Love is addicting, and her style is so pretty. Just felt like she’d make a great Sailor Moon. Also was inspired by Asieybarbie’s sailor moon redraws as well when doing this.

I’m gonna cry because I love Moko too and I love Sailor Moon and this is absolute perfection and everyone should just SEE THIS THEN LIKE IT IMMEDIATELY OK.

West Papua - The secret war in Asia

The forgotten land of West Papua is under brutal Indonesian military occupation. Its tribal people are being slaughtered, and their unique environment destroyed. But the world is doing nothing to stop it. In 1963, in violation of international law, Indonesia occupied and colonised the West Papuan homeland in the western part of New Guinea. Since that tragic event the West Papuans are asking for a fair referendum about their independence. At least 100.000 indigenous people lost their lives in this secret war.

What Being Imprisoned Taught George Takei About America
When George Takei (georgetakei) was only 5, he and his family were imprisoned in an American internment camp. While it might seem that World War II would challenge his faith in America, hear George talk about what he learned from that experience, his parents, and a segregated Japanese-American army battalion.

30 DAY X-MEN CHALLENGE:

Day 8: Dust

Alias: Sooraya Qadir

Powers: Dust can transform into a cloud of sand or dust. In this form she can propel herself through the air at great speeds. This form makes her particularly dangerous, as the microscopic edges of the sand particles act as tiny blades, stripping the flesh off an opponent. She can use this form to move through cracks and crevices, allowing her to venture where others may not be able to. According to several people, Dust’s dust form is very hard to detect and effect telepathically. Dust’s main weakness is water, but has also been shown to have a vulnerability to air. Even though Dust can control her dust cloud, it can be controlled by others who have abilities such as Telekinesis or Aerokinesis. Dust’s dust form is resistant to magic, according to Belasco. She is also weak against fire, as shown when she was turned into glass, as sand turns into glass at extreme heat.
