Off to basic.

curtis-ballard:

Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.

AND DON’T

FUCKING

TELL PEOPLE

THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING

BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT

JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING

Eevee, Flareon, and Vulpix together by request. You’re lucky I found this, usually it’s almost impossible to track down pictures of multiple Pokemon together unless they’re related to one another in some way (ex. Umbreon and Espeon, Ninetales and Arcanine, Latios and Latias, the starter Pokemon, Plusle and Minun, the butterfly Pokemon, etc).

The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen. 

I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves. 

Part of what I like about this is that the hatred was solved by kindness. Everyone he meets is nice, or at the very least decent. Of course we know it doesn’t work this simply in real life - he probably would’ve been cruel to quite a few people, and vice versa upon learning about his racism, but I think in terms of smaller-scale issues this kind of scenario is totally plausible (since I fear a member of a group as powerful and frightening as the KKK or the Nazi party would probably take a bit more than kindness to change their ways).

A homophobe finding out her best friend is gay and subsequently meeting all of his really nice queer friends, with none of the “political agenda” or “perversion” she’d assumed they would have. A sexist being sent to a summer camp populated by mostly girls, and learning very quickly through campfire discussions that their plights of catcalling and sexual harassment aren’t nearly as rare as he’d once thought. These are things that can and do happen.

Nobody’s mind was ever changed by meanness or a snide tone.
