HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now add Black to it, 

And think about how white people are the ones in the hiring positions, 

And white people never look at us or interact with us for longer than they absolutely HAVE to, 

So most of us are automatically marked ‘unattractive’ simply because we’re Black, 

Aaaaaand you end up with a Black unemployment rate that’s over DOUBLE that of the rest of the country, 

EVEN DURING TIMES OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY.

"I really need to get away and go some place that will allow me to clear my mind. Being here has only caused a huge build up of insanity and I’m ready to explode. I want to break everything and set everything on fire and just ruin everything that I love, because it’s all ruined me."

I’m gonna go crazy on the outside. (via artistiquesoul)
