my school took away a ton of my financial aid and I have 17 days to get 1300$ and I can’t even get a JOB

so my mom is trying to get this weird parent loan and basically if it doesn’t all work out

I won’t be able to afford my school anymore and I will have to move back to Texas and go to…

update:

i got two more donations from people (THANK YOU) and I sold some of my personal things that had value (aka like the half my coin collection that was worth anything (which makes me wanna cry)) 

also my mom got denied a loan to help me but because of that they gave me back a very small amount of my financial aid

i’m still applying for jobs but i haven’t heard from anyone yet

i now need just 568 dollars and i will have enough for my payment this month (the payment is due on the 27th by 7 pm)

if i can make it through this month and get a job really quickly, i think i’ll be able to make it through the rest of the year

(i will have one more (small) payment next month and then i will have all of november + december + january to work and save money, plus money from my birthday and christmas, before spring payments start, so i think i can be okay if i can just get through THIS)

please please please if you can donate anything at all, it will be a HUGE help. if you aren’t in a place where you can spare anything, i understand, but if you could, PLEASE boost this.

anything you guys can do to help, i will be grateful beyond words

my gofundme is www.gofundme.com/collegeforheather

i also have a paypal and if you message me i can give you the email for that

thank you so so so much to everyone who has been reblogging this for me and ESPECIALLY to those of you who have donated. i honestly cannot express how much it means to me that people who i haven’t even had the good fortune to MEET, would actually care enough about my situation to help. y’all are magic.

thanks.

hey guys

I have seven days left

I’ve got an interview lined up for a job but it won’t happen in time for me to make this payment

I don’t really have any options left, other than this

if I miss the payment they add on a 200$ late fee, and I still have another payment next month

if you can help or boost this I will be immensely grateful
thanks to everyone who’s been helping so far

or were you referring to the other black people dressed ” respectfully ” during that time period that were being attacked with fire hoses and dogs? or maybe the ones getting lynched while white people stood under them, smiling and taking pictures? 
or was it the ones that stood alongside MLK, dressed just as nicely, that got blown up inside of a church?
racism has nothing to do with how ” respectfully ” we dress. it’s about race.
stop making excuses for them you piece of shit.


oh yes. up until the 1990s, when black men began wearing the sagging pants style (which originated in prison and prison culture leaked out into the population because so many people were getting locked up because of the “war on drugs”), white people REEEALLLY respected black people.
who knew? a few extra inches of boxers and basketball shorts showing has made allllllllllllll the difference. people are getting shot down for nothing by the police and the threshold between first class and 2nd class citizenship was pants this whole time.
pants. 
and here i was thinking they just were racist and had been indoctrinated to believe in and uphold white supremacy over power.
it was a simple miscommunication on how to wear your pants.  
someone go tell trayvon martin’s mom it was pants.

I am a black woman in a college town that is 93% white and has the other distinction of being the “rape capital” of America. At my job, I am paid minimum wage to deal with over 150 needy white locals and tourists a day. I could submit to this blog with every shift, but this particular interaction…

talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.

The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.
