“Let me talk like an old man. Young people, be careful. Beautiful things are disappearing every day. Be careful. You don’t need to be [shopping at fast-fashion stores], especially young people. They are beautiful naturally, because they are young. So they should even wear simple jeans and a T-shirt. It’s enough. Don’t be too much fashionable. The brand advertising is making you crazy. You don’t need to be too sexy. You are sexy enough.”

Happy birthday Susan B. Anthony!
February 15, 1820 - March 13, 1906
In 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed the bill authorizing the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin.  The U.S. Mint officially released the coin on July 2, 1979.

Yes yes… Susan B. Anthony. 
I don’t like her. I don’t like her at all. And, here’s why. 
She fought very strongly to end slavery in America. Cool! But, as soon as Black men got the right to vote, and women still didn’t, she revealed her racist self. Anthony wrote and said tons of racist shit after Black men got the right to vote:

“The old antislavery school says that women must stand back, that they must wait until male Negroes are voters. But we say, if you will not give the whole loaf of justice to an entire people, give it to the most intelligent first. If intelligence, justice, and morality are to be placed in the government, then let the question of woman be brought up first and that of the Negro last.”  (1869 letter to Frederick Douglass)

When Blacks were being lynched, Anthony didn’t say a word. When issues concerning Blacks were brought up, she declared them “dead questions of the past.” That’s the reason why the NWSA (National Woman Suffrage Association) was started. It was a split from the American Equal Rights Association because Anthony, Elizabeth Stanton (another feminist hero who thought it was disgraceful that “Patrick [Irish immigrants] and Sambo [Blacks] and Hans [German immigrants] and Yung Tung [Chinese immigrants]” would make decisions, via the right to vote, for women like herself.), and others wanted to basically be racist.
And, Sojourner Truth was stuck in a bind. She had stood with Anthony fighting for the end of slavery. And when that was over, she was alienated by Anthony and the White women she had thought herself to be equals with. She was confused and sad. And so was Frederick Douglass. 
When Anthony was race baiting and being racist while discussing what “women” need and want.. she defined what a woman was… and her definition excluded Black and immigrant women…just like when Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich talk about “Americans” today.

“dead questions of the past”… hmmm… sounds SO familiar.

Bolding mine.

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.
One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
 ”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter Emily Weyer aka Milly Makara was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at 951 229 3394. Thank you in advance”. -JILL WEYER

"I had this feeling suddenly. I get this feeling a lot, but I don’t know if there’s one word for it. It’s not nervous or sad or even lonely. It’s all of that, and then a bit more. The feeling is I don’t belong here. I don’t know how I got here, and I don’t know how long I can stay before everyone else realizes that I am an impostor. I am a fraud. I’ve gotten this feeling nearly everywhere I have ever been in my life. There’s nothing you can do about it except drink some water and hope that it subsides. Or you can leave."
