"A white college student from a private college goes into a poor neighborhood and volunteers four hours a week and that’s considered exemplary. [Whereas] a poor kid who lives in that community and takes care of all the kids in that neighborhood four hours every day is not seen as a volunteer."
Patricia Hill Collins (via ellomaria)
Ha this is so relevant to people at my college who win “service awards” for tutoring a child a few hours a week versus people who live and work in those communities who don’t win them(via wretchedoftheearth)
I wonder if White “Rastas” know that the Rastafari movement explicitly states its against Whiteness.
