I don’t know what this is or why it exists, but it is wonderful in my eyes.
we can all agree that plus size fashion and clothing options have steadily improved over the last decade- like, when i was in high school, my options were lane bryant or thrift store menswear (and i wore a proud mixture of both, with a shaved head, and generally looked like shit, but thankfully i…

1. Paula Deen’s actions and words go faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar beyond saying the N word. And they are much more recent and pervasive than this meme lets on. Totally disregarding the truth here. She has privilege and power and used them to be racist. She gets no sympathy. And I haven’t heard one good apology from her. Furthermore, why is her apologizing worth letting her off the hook for her actions and words?
2. I don’t know about the Lil Wayne incident, haven’t heard about it until this and even after reading up on it i’m not convinced that it’s actual stomping. But burning or stomping on the flag is protected speech under the first amendment and isn’t hate speech directed at a group of people for the color of their skin for the purpose of continuing centuries of oppression. The flag has often been used in a variety of ways to protest policies of the US government, both formal and informal. I wouldn’t ever chose to do it, but the beauty of America is that you are free to do it. His record label is free to do what they want, but the fact that they haven’t done anything speaks to the fact that he isn’t being accused of hurting anyone in any way whereas Deen’s actions directly impacted people.
i could use a meatball sub for similar reasons right about now.
