I’m half Puerto Rican and South American (Colombian and Ecuadorian). My skin is pale, but 99% of the time people will look at me and assume I’m Latina because pf my facial features (don’t ask; it’s pretty dumb). Anyway, this white guy had my number and would blow up my phone always wanting to hang…
When asked why white male Southerners have turned to the GOP, Carter said: “It’s race. That’s been prevalent in the South … . Ever since Nixon ran — and ever since Johnson didn’t campaign in the deep South, the Republicans have solidified their hold there.”Republican proposals, such as cutting food stamps and assuming the guilt of minorities and the mentally ill who are in jail, appeal to the rich, he said.”Those kind of things just exalt the higher class, which is the whites, and they draw a subtle, but very effective racial line throughout the South,” Carter said.Carter also rejected interpretations of the Biblethat are used to oppress women. He said individuals can find verses that belittle women but also many that pronounce the equality of all people.”So, you know, you could find verses, but as far as Jesus Christ is concerned, he was unanimously and always the champion of women’s rights,” he said. “He never deviated from that standard. And in fact he was the most prominent champion of human rights that lived in his time and I think there’s been no one more committed to that ideal than he is.” President Jimmy Carter
Thus far, my sorors and I have been working hard to spread the word, from our “Teal Tuesdays” (teal is the official color for the commemorative month), to sharing statistics and facts with the student body, to our whiteboard campaign. It was great to see my peers willingly join in and express themselves, as we worked to raise awareness about SAAM. :)
This is just a few of the MANY photos we have taken, posted, and shared…and from what I’ve been informed, our movement has been picked up by the Deltas and our sorors at Bethune-Cookman University, as well.
