Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x
Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x
3% of Canada’s population is Indigenous women, but 60% of Canada’s missing persons list are also Indigenous women.
i remember one time the simpsons made a joke about fox news and they got so insulted they tried to sue them but the court was like “this aired on ur network u can’t sue urself”
what did vincent say when he lost his car in the parking lot
“where did my van gogh”
the correct pronunciation of “gogh” is “goff”, you uncultured swine
people who say blacks instead of black people are just in a hurry cause they have a white nationalist meeting to go to

I don’t think you guys know just how powerful this scene was. Literally when I was in the audience I could just see a lot of the women of color affected by this scene. A lot of us have gone through this self denial and self hate through the effects of white beauty standards and beliefs forced down our throats.This was the first time I had ever seen something that I had personally felt before portrayed on the screen and it put tears in my eyes. If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. It’s out on dvd/bluray/streaming
Oh my God I need to see this movie. I have gone through this scene exactly, down to trying to rub the color out of my skin in self-loathing.
