Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women?
like honestly baffling

MSU lets them all go. Every. single. time. Unless you’re an athlete, you do not matter. I wish I would have gone to Midnight Madness to witness this. My heart goes out to everyone that has to live this nightmare. #wemattertoo

This picture has qualities that I wish I possessed

The set @ Marc Jacobs F/W 2014-15.

I live in a conservative/unfunny town, so this type of thing is almost unheard of

    Why can't white people have pride

  • Black people: *raises fist* Black Power!* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
  • Latinos: *Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
  • Asian: people: Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
  • White: White power! *considers every other race inferior*forces other races to give up cultures*spreads disease*commits genocide against a race of people because they're different and have land* Steals said land* kidnaps other race of people* enslaves them* brings them to said land* calls it the land of the free* rape,tortures, experiments, kills enslaved people* frees these people for political and financial reasons* dons white hoods terrorizes these people for over a century* takes pics smiling and having a picnic while these peoples bloody and charred bodies hang from trees* Makes souvenirs of these people body parts well into the 60s*sterilizes and experiments on these people without their consent up until the 70s(hell, probably still going on)* Creates beauty standard that no else can live up to* white washes history so that history begins with white contact and we have to do our own research to find out what really happened*Claims to be the only civilized race*
  •  And that's just scratching the surface of American history. History tells us that y'all just don't know how to have white pride without some kind of craziness ensuing.Why not just have national pride? Y'all know where y'all came from.
