AN UNPRECEDENTED UNITY MOVEMENT BETWEEN GREAT PLAIN TRIBES IN A NO HOLDS BARRED RESISTANCE OF KEYSTONE XL
Compare the best of their days with the worst of your days; you won’t win. With your standards so high and your spirits so low, at least remember … this is you on a bad day, you on a pale day. Just do your best and don’t worry. The way you hang yourself is oh, so unfair.
See the best of how they look against the worst of how you are and again, you won’t win. With your standards so high and your spirits so low, at least remember … this is you on a drab day, you in a drab dress. Just do your best and don’t worry. The way you hang yourself is oh, so unfair.
It would not be tolerated to portray black-faced, kinky-haired cartoon characters cavorting around a stadium while spectators chanted parts of Negro spirituals or used the “N-word” for or against a particular team! This usage, or any similar stereotypic usage would be recognized as inappropriate, rude, untrue, and unjust. Why, then, do millions of Americans, many of whom consider themselves without prejudice, miss the point when there are complaints, demonstrations, and outraged requests to have the Native American symbols removed from the mascot realm?

Just a few features of my anxiety
- Me: *gets on bus* omg everyone is watching me and judging me and they're going to laugh when the bus starts and im not sitting down, omg dont put your ticket in the wrong way or everyone will judge you and laugh at you.
- Me: *goes to pay for shopping* omg what if I dont have enough money? *counts money out 20 times* what if I look stupid, or say the wrong thing? am I standing in the right spot even? What if someone else wants to get past and im in the way, omg.
- Me: *says hey to someone online* omg, they arent replying, holy shit why am I so annoying? what if they tell their friends how annoying and lame I am? Why am I like this, holy shit.
- Me: *meets someone new* What if they dont like me and dont want me to be around, I shouldnt have met them, im going to be a burden, they're probably critisizing me right now, why am I the way I am?
