Bad, Feminism, and Memes: ls it Racist? Racism is... Systemic oppression Reinforced by society Harmful to a group of people Based on history of power, oppression, and inequality Racism is not... Simply about hurt feelings x Only an issue of being offended Just a rude statement based on racial bias Reverse racism is not real. The sociological definition of racism is power+prejudice; thus you can be prejudiced against someone, but without systemic power, it's not "racism" (it is still bad and wrong obviously). We use the sociological definition of racism, since sociologists study society and things like racism and discrimination 🙂 same reason we use scientific definitions for scientific phenomena and not just default to a basic general dictionary definition. If you are white and this upsets you, please think about history and the evolution of society. No one is saying white people have easy lives with no problems or that things are handed to you...just that racism is a SYSTEMIC issue that has to do with who has and has previously had power. And that ending slavery doesn't automatically make everyone equal. It's pretty easy to see that racism is still hugely prevalent today (look at the recent events in Charlottesville, the way people talk about people who are Muslim, the rhetoric around immigration, or anything Trump has ever said about any minority), so instead of debating about whether or not it was racist when a person of color was mean to you, why not focus on fixing these systemic issues and making the world a more equitable place for ALL people 🙃🙃🙃🙃. (Also I generally don't like turning off comments but things get hella messy whenever I post about racism, particularly reverse racism - I am assuming this is from people who follow me and are younger, maybe that live in mostly white areas and don't interact with POC and have never thought about racism??? - or y'all are just racist in which cause pls unfollow because feminism is not only about white women 🙄)

Friday, Jay, and Jay Z: Gloria Carter Opens Up About Coming Out on Jay-Z's Song, "Smile" @balleralert Gloria Carter Opens Up About Coming Out on Jay-Z’s Song, “Smile” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nearly three months after GloriaCarter’s emotional revelation on her son’s highly anticipated “4:44” album, Jay-Z’s mother is speaking out about the entire ordeal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I just finally started telling (Jay-Z) who I was. Besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live,” Carter said on the D’USSE Friday podcast. “So my son started actually tearing. ‘Cause he’s like, ‘That had to be a horrible life, Ma’. I was like, ‘My life was never horrible. It was just different.’ So that made him want to do a song about it.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the song almost didn’t make the cut, as Carter wasn’t happy with it at first. Jay-Z spit lyrics that were so direct and to the point, that Carter became hesitant about the release and subsequent exposure of her personal business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I was sharing myself with ( JayZ), not to share myself with the world. I don’t know if I’m ready for that,” she recalled. However, things took a turn when Carter revisited the words that she’d written for Jay-Z. Her words turned into poetry and eventually became the poetic break on “Smile,” that Jay-Z allowed her to speak for herself on the track. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I was never ashamed of me,” she said. “I’m tired of all the mystery. I’m gonna give it to them. I don’t have to worry about anybody wondering if I’m in the life or not. I’m gonna tell them. So now that I told you what do you have to talk about? So now maybe you can focus on the phenomenal things I do.”

Anaconda, Life, and Memes: @Standup911 During a robbery, the bank robber shouted to everyone in the bank: “Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you.” Everyone in the bank laid down quietly. This is called “Mind Changing Concept” Changing the conventional way of thinking. When a lady lay on the table provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!” This is called “Being Professional” Focus only on what you are trained to do! When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA-trained) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in primary school): “Big brother, let’s count how much we got.” The older robber rebutted and said: “You are very stupid. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. Tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!” This is called “Experience.” Nowadays, experience is more important than paper qualifications! After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. But the supervisor said to him: “Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”. This is called “Swim with the tide.” Converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage! The supervisor says: “It will be good if there is a robbery every month.” This is called “Killing Boredom.” Personal Happiness is more important than your job. The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million. The robbers were very angry and complained: “We risked our lives and only took $20 million. The bank manager took $80 million with a snap of his fingers. It looks like it is better to be educated than to be a thief!” This is called “Knowledge is worth as much as gold!” The bank manager was smiling and happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this robbery. This is called “Seizing the opportunity.” Daring to take risks! So who are the real robbers here. standup911 fuckthesystem

Memes, Scream, and Focus: IF YOU LISTEN TO YOUR BODY WHEN IT WHISPERS, YOU WIONT HAVE TO HEAR IT SCREAM PROJECT APPINES Regram @projecthappiness_org ☜ 20 minutes of meditation has been proven to lower stress hormones of upwards of 800%. Stress is arguably the number one cause of disease in our world as it encumbers our immunological system across the board, making other illnesses achieve a foothold and spread from there. Lowering said stress hormone levels is therefore our primary focus as a novice meditator. There is really no point doing mantras, mudras or chanting before this has been self-mastered, this feeling of abundant stillness, this centering. Yes, a mantra can still alleviate the conscious foci to remain centered. And yes, a mudra is an expression of meditative intent that when used properly can greatly alter the experiences during the meditative state. But before we are solemly calm, these things are mere "unknowables", the mind cannot know these assistants, for they are not "knowledge" to be applied, they are vehicles of consciousness more so, and you wouldn't strap a toddler into a spaceship before he learnt some spatial awareness, would you? So just sit. Breathe. 🙏 Focus on the sensation of drawing breath. ⚜ The sensation your body has to go through in order to do so. ☥ This will bring you to the center, from which point you will be able to understandably apply whichever vehicle or auditory imbiber. ✡ 1ove 💓 awakespiritual meditation still water upon the infinite ocean create the wave awake spiritual ascension enlightenment

Memes, Ups, and Control: Rotator Cuff Muscles CHAOS PUSH UP TUTORIAL Infraspinatus Teres mino Subcapulars @dr.jacob.harden TAKE YOUR PUSH UPS UP A NOTCH . Yesterday we looked at a progression to get your first push up. Today I want to go the other way and show you how to make it more difficult. . Many people move on from push ups after they build a strength base in favor for more heavily loaded movements like the bench press. But the push up still offers a lot of benefits, especially for the strength athlete.🏋️‍♂️ . I like to see push ups in my athletes' prehab programs because they offer something unique over our other horizontal pressing movements...the scapula continue to move. I see a lot people with an inability to control and move their scapula freely. Part of that is because most of our traditional training movements have our shoulder blades pinned down and back and we never move them.🚦 . The push up keeps the shoulder blades moving, so they are a great way to maintain that scapular control. . 🌋This variation, termed the Chaos Pushup from @smittydiesel, is one of my favorite ones to use as it's a good bang your buck exercise. Not only do we work the scapular motion, but we force the rotator cuff to engage harder and dynamically stabilize our shoulder joints. Quality over quantity here. Focus, control, and don't let yourself get sloppy. . Tag a friend who needs some shoulder prehab and share the wealth! . Prehab101
