feliciashanay: And you can disagree and argue about the way Nicki dresses all day; even try to convince others that that’s not how a “barbie” should look but the truth of the matter is that our bodies are nothing to be ashamed of. Whether it’s natural or it’s something added on/taken off by…

joshunda: For this kind of goodness and more: You are a storyteller and people will need your stories. Don’t stop writing them down. You have incredible discernment—use it. Do an inventory as often as possible and purge relationships that don’t add to your life, because they will inevitably subtract from it. Don’t hold on to dead or toxic relationships. Friendships only matter in quality,...

*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.

gradientlair: I recently read an interesting piece by Alyssa Rosenberg on Think Progress where she mentions: The number of African-American television writers has grown much more slowly in the same time period [1999-2000 - 2011-2012 television seasons], rising from 5.8 percent to 6.5 percent of overall…
