Not surprised when a binder clip is worth more than a donation from its 'designer'

Same people posting black squares on insta are the same people who’ve been having garden parties for the last 10 weeks.

Think people are getting it confused aren’t they? That was just one of the donations he made wasn’t it? He’s done like $20,000 worth so he said.

folk are very strange - there's people I follow who I know couldn't give two shits about issues such as poverty, inequality, racism, sexism (etc.) every other day of the year, yet they jump on these social media bandwagons like no tomorrow

I fully support the ideals of black lives matter but I honestly don't feel like I know enough about the cause or do enough campaigning towards racial equality the rest of the time to be able to get on this social media trend without feeling inauthentic and guilty

plus it's absolute jokes seeing guys I know who vote conservative joining in with this BLM stuff

Yeah support the movement in general but don’t like the ‘you must support this or else’ vibe so I will mourn the death of an innocent man in police hands in my own way and make my own judgements on what I can do to further equality. I don’t need some instathot giving me a list of books to read to get educated

glad everyone else sees this the same way i do. don't like the fact that there remains police brutality in america, and that an innocent black man was killed. but i also dont like the fact that stores, businesses etc are being looted and fucked over because of it

and every dickhead on my instagram thinks their helping solve racism by sharing a black square - fuckheads.

That tweet though. It's the same mega corps like H&M that donated half a mill. Capitalism cares y'all.
