Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Pocahontas is arguably the most inspirational Disney princess.Maybe it’s because her story is true.My sister is TOO inlove with ‘Colours of the Wind’and personally I prefer ‘Just around the Riverbend’ but hey,that’s just me :-P
the disney movie horribly bastardized a real womans life, if you wana know her story look up the real thing not the white fanfiction
*hard squint at OP*
Hahaha omg. If the movie had followed history it would have been nothing but the Powhatan saving the Brits from starvation again and again, the Brits kidnapping and gang raping a twelve-year-old Pocahontas when they wanted even ~*~more food~*~ from the Powhatan because they were too lazy to grow it themselves, (yes, John Smith raped her, too), and then this poor little girl being forced to marry one of the men who may or may not have been the father of her child by aforementioned rape before dying two years later of disease.
Yup, that’s inspirational… About as inspirational as Auschwitz!
Carlton dropping some real shit
The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
when people give me compliments I feel like a vending machine trying to accept a wrinkly dollar and it’s just really frustrating for everyone involved
I’ve never related to anything more in my life
