PSA: The kitchen table is not also a bathroom, closet, and library. People eat there so, things like your hair brush, shoes, clothes, and large stacks of books and papers shouldn't live there. Again, THIS IS A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE EAT. To my roommates and anyone else, now you know.

#26855 I'm in a super rough spot right now.... I have super controlling parents and its made me spiral into severe anxiety and depression. This time last year they said my grades weren't good enough to stay at Purdue, so they pulled me away from what felt like my true home and everyone I cared about. Now a year later, They're pulling me out of my new school even though I have a 2.98 (which is pretty good for Aerospace engineering at this school). I just am so frustrated and sad as I realize Im saying goodbye once more to a school I started to love and call Home. And saying goodbye to all my new friends. They're stopping funding for school fully after this year if I dont reach their goal GPA and idk how I'll fund college after this. I feel like Ill never be good enough and that Im a failure.

#21147 So I'm just here to remind everyone that
1. Due, dew and do are different words.
2. Words that refer things that are plural *can* be treated as plural (i.e. "My family are happy to hear from you," "Nickleback are a terrible band."). I know it seems kind of wonky but trust me it is grammatically correct.
3. They are spelled prescription, peripheral, prerogative and grammar. Not perscription, periphrial, perogative and grammer.
4. Orientate is not a word.
5. You is both singular and plural. You all, you guys and y'all are a waste of breath.
Final point I'm going to make is if you plan on becoming an educator, please don't make these mistakes when correcting students papers.#makeamericaliterateagain

I just realized how fucking meaningless my last relationship was and how none of my "friends" actually remember me when it matters

It's not "divisiveness" that's the problem. Racism is not a mindset, a belief, or a property of an individual.
Certain individuals might act racistly, but racism, like fascism, is lodged deeper, in the unconscious. It's in our language, our ideology, the very way we see the world. The stolen land beneath our feet becomes home, the slaughter of black bodies by police becomes the rule of law, imperialism in the Middle East becomes human rights. In every one of us lurks the ghost of a colonial authority, a proto-fascist, inhumanity in all its horror and force. You can't be not-racist.
You have to be anti-racist.
Remember Eichmann, the boring, unexceptional, petty bureaucrat who did his job. Eating your lunch quietly won't stop history. You cannot satisfy yourself with merely abstaining from racist thoughts and behavior when the world around you bleeds black and brown blood. Inaction is a meager virtue.
When every institution of our state is penetrated throughout by racial violence, from schools to immigration to drug enforcement, it cannot be enough to satisfy yourself with personal virtue. That is the first lesson of History: that it is not about you. The humanity of those who suffer, have suffered, will suffer, demands something greater of us.
And that something greater might not be SWN. However, SWN, issues of efficacy, tact, or tactics aside, has brought to light the extent to which we still cling dearly to this fragile notion of non-racism. If we ask ourselves why five minutes at dinner have provoked such a response, what nerve they touched, what sort of answer do we find?
"A splinter in the eye is the best magnifying glass available"
We find that it attacks our ego, the illusions that allow us to function day-to-day despite the crushing universal violence of our world. It offends us because we want to believe we're already good enough, it insults us because we we are too proud to admit that we too, like everyone else, are racist. The challenge of moving the world forward lies not only in confronting the institutions of stone and flesh, but those of the mind as well. No matter how many of the correct positions you hold you must confront the racist in yourself.
We cannot shy away from self-criticism, history will not let us.
