Hey! I chose between Smith and Drew when I was applying! I’m a senior at Smith now so won’t be here for much longer, but would be happy to chat with you if it would be helpful!
RETURN THE GAYZE: a breakup letter to stanford university -
you are eighteen — give or take a few
shots of espresso and one night stands —
and you are sandwiched in the backseat
of the car with the six suitcases you somehow convinced your mother
to let you pack for college — let’s call it,
being upfront to your roommate that you are
Transwomen @ Smith: Thank you. -
So. It’s been a while since I’ve written you all, folks. As far as I know, this will be the last update letter I will write you.
I guess this is it, for now. There’s no chance I can go to Smith College, as the administration has returned my application without reading it not once—but two times…
In light of the racist and homophobic events occurring at Oberlin College, we’ve created a banner for Smithies to sign in solidarity with their struggle. We hope you’ll stop by the SGA Office on the second floor of the CC between 9 and 5 Monday thru Friday this week to sign.

In March 2009, Webb said on the Senate floor, “Let’s start with a premise that I don’t think a lot of Americans are aware of. We have five percent of the world’s population; we have 25 percent of the world’s known prison population. There are only two possibilities here: either we have the most evil people on earth living in the United States, or we are doing something dramatically wrong in terms of how we approach the issue of criminal justice. — Adding prison reform to the national to-do list - The Maddow Blog (via aboriginalpressnews)
One White man named Lincoln who supposedly fought the Civil War to solve the race problem and the problem is still here. Then another white man called Kennedy came along running for President and told Negroes what all he was going to do for them if they voted for him. And, they voted for him, 80%. He’s been in office for what is now 3 years and the problem is still here.
When police dogs were biting Black women and Black children and Black babies in Birmingham, Alabama, Kennedy talked about what he couldn’t do because no federal law had been violated. And, as soon as the Negroes exploded and began to protect themselves and got the best of the crackers in Birmingham, then Kennedy sent for the troops. He didn’t have any new law. He sent for the troops when the Negroes erupted that he had at the time when the whites were erupting.
So, we are within our rights with justification when we express doubt concerning the ability of the White man to solve the problem. And also, when we express doubt concerning his integrity, his sincerity, because you will have to confess the problem has been around for a long time and the White man has been saying the same things about it for the past hundred years, [meaning] there’s no closer a solution than there was a hundred years ago. — Malcolm X (via knowledgeequalsblackpower)
