And we’re not going to be debating all these gosh darn proposals. That’s all we do in the Senate is vote on things like raising the minimum wage — Mitch McConnell, everyone. (via think-progress)

1. As an individual who cannot experience racism you may not claim racism is over or not real. Stop.
2. Just because you don’t realize you have privilege doesn’t mean you don’t. Stop claiming your whiteness doesn’t protect you and promote you. Stop.
3. If someone tells you what you have said or done has hurt them or is offensive to them, your first reaction should not be to defend yourself or claim the accuser is over sensitive. Listen to them. Learn. Stop.

I was challenged by a friend to do the ALS #icebucketchallenge. I’ve chosen to participate by donating to both the ALS Association and The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. I think this is an excellent opportunity to not only support and raise awareness for those who suffer from ALS, but for all of us to get involved with an organization that we are passionate about and want to help. I challenge everyone to get involved with their community and help others in any way you possibly can whether that be by willingly having a bucket of freezing cold water dumped on your head, volunteering at your local animal shelter or food bank or just helping someone across the street or holding a door open for someone. Together we can make a difference.
