A quote from
Things I did not know, but should.
This is a post that might save a life.

We’re only taught symptoms that occur to men
(via kindredsmile)Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.

I said it before and I’ll say it again: if Jesus can be portrayed as white, surely Annie can be black.
I’ll go see that movie as many times as necessary for it to be on top of the box office.
"Black girls aren’t named Annie" LOOOOOORD
White folks are REALLY starting to get on my nerves…
Lupita is EVERTHING.
