24 year old Latino originally hailing from NY but now making his life in Western MA. Learning to fall in love with many things again, including myself and the area that I hated for so long. Educated. Motivated. Determined. Not much stands in my way and I work hard for the things I want. I reblog and post things that call out to me. As you can see I am very eclectic.Don't be afraid to message me (really dont be haha)

It took Katara about .532 seconds to take zuko down
it’s still going down in Ferguson. The police are still orchestrating the fuckery. Our people were still out there protesting. This shit is REAL and is STILL happening. I applaud my people for standing up!

We are gypsies 😛
No you are not
PLEASE stop using the word ‘gypsy’ in relation to bellydance! It’s a horrendous slur that is used NOW to dehumanize and express hatred by Neo-Nazis and white supremacists against the Rromani.
“Using the word “Gypsy” is not only inaccurate but perpetuates the continuation of stereotypes that portray Roma as beggars, swindlers, and thieves; thus the phrase: “I’ve been gypped”. The romanticized image of the “Gypsy” is alive and well in song lyrics, novels, costume parties, musical groups, and other forms of cultural imagery: “They are exotic women in colorful skirts, dancing in sensual swirls. They are dark en with smoldering eyes. They are carefree spirits playing the tambourine.” 1 They dance by campfires, travel in caravans, tell fortunes with crystal balls or Tarot cards.
But as VOR president Sani Rifati writes:
“I won’t play you a sad song on my violin. I do not have a bandana. I do not have a golden tooth. I do not have long hair or a golden hoop in my ear. I am just trying to speak up for my people:
- to tell you about their suffering and the persecution they’ve endured throughout the centuries
- to ask you to fight against ignorance, prejudice and stereotypes
Simply put, as a place to start: please call me Rom.”
You’re actually racists. -Donya
