Drugs, Jail, and Memes: ethiopienne Pro-tip: white privilege doesn't mean white people have perfect lives. It means that white people do not have to deal with institutionalized, systemic racism in addition to their everyday problems. It means institutionalized, systemic racism does not cause white people's everyday problems. If your first reaction is to be angry and comment why this is wrong, take a deep breath, slowly read the post again and wait for the words to sink in. Think about what this is saying and try to deeply consider what this means, especially coming from someone who is not white. No one is saying white people have perfect lives, don't have problems, or even that there's no way they can be bullied-discrimanated against because of how they look. The difference is that racism isn't just a feeling or thought, it's INSTITUTIONALIZED and SYSTEMATIC, which means that you have laws (Jim Crow, housing discrimination, voter ID laws-voter discrimination, redlining), history, powerful figures, etc etc etc against you, not just individuals being rude to you. Yes you can be white and poor, you can be white and be bullied, you can be white and have problems. It's just that these problems are NOT reinforced by or due to a historic, systematic, institutional oppression based solely on your race-ethnicity. In the US for example, the country was built by white men with laws for white men. Over time, many of these laws have changed: ex. everyone has the legal right to vote now, slavery is illegal, Jim Crow laws no longer exist. Unfortunately, these laws don't just end; they evolve. All people can vote, yet voter ID laws disproportionately prevent people of color in poor communities from voting. Slavery is illegal, yet black men disproportionately fill jail cells and are exploited for their labor while privatized prisons profit off their incarceration (see: war on drugs, or "13th" on Netflix). I can list examples like those two all day, but the point is that people of color continue to face institutionalized, systematic racism that has legal & political backing and an entire history causing and justifying it. White people do not have to deal with that, hence the term "white privilege." And, again, no one is saying white people don't have problems. That's not what "white privilege" means.

College, Girls, and Memes: cience | guff.com This woman proved the existence of dark matter Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬ In the spirit of today, @Science wanted to honor Vera Rubin, an amazing American astronomer! How’s that for alliteration? She was born in Philadelphia and grew up with an interest in astronomy. Rubin eventually earned her BA in astronomy from Vassar College and tried to enroll in the graduate astronomy program at Princeton, but they refused to send her a catalogue because women weren’t allowed in the graduate astronomy program...until 1975. Let’s let that sink in for a second. She ended up studying at Cornell University, learning quantum physics from Richard Feynman and quantum mechanics under Hans Bethe. While studying the Andromeda Galaxy with fellow astronomer Kent Ford, Rubin noticed that objects on the outer parts of the galaxy were spinning at the same speed as those on the inside, which was antithetical to the belief objects at the center of a galaxy move faster than those on the outskirts. It turns out that she discovered the existence of the unseeable stuff that affects the movement of galaxies! . . Give a shout-out to your favorite women in the field of Science in the comments below. πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬β¬‡οΈβ¬‡οΈβ¬‡οΈ .
