My name is Sacha, I'm 20 and I'm a 2nd year art student. My posts will mostly consist of homestuck, one piece, random art, things I find funny and so on and so forth. I really should get around to making an art blog. Someone remind me. So Hi nice to meet you :D. OH AND IM FROM KIWI LAND SO THATS EXCITING.
i don’t normally post porn sorry
I do, and this is much better.
Eli and I were having lunch and decided to look at the Halloween store next to the restaurant.
We FOUND a bunch of “racist product” stickers and also FOUND that these stickers were put on some of the racist costumes in the store.
How strange to FIND such a thing! A+ anti-racism work!
It’s almost as if the store clerks who are going to get in trouble for this and are going to have to peel it all off and answer to questions from confused costumers while they are confused as well are the ones feeling the backlash from this.
Not even the companies that make the costumes or the people that order or wear them. But innocent employees. Funny how that works.
Think before you act, seriously. You could’ve at least asked for a conversation with the manager about the costumes instead of just sticking powerwords on there hoping that that’ll magically solve the issue by itself without any added explanation.
But I have a feeling that this is more about giving yourself a pat on the back than it is about actually helping or educating people in the first place. Because this isn’t helping anyone.
People do shit like this in the bookstore where I work all the time — we had people rip pages out of Obama’s autobiography, move Bibles into the fiction section (I bet people think they’re being super clever when they do this! GUESS WHAT I’VE ONLY SEEN IT APPROXIMATELY A MILLION TIMES), and hide Ann Coulter books in cabinets.
I once had someone turn all the Twilight books around so that their spines were facing inward, and then come back and do it again THREE TIMES after I fixed it.
Even if you work retail at the nicest place in the universe where you would never be yelled at or fired for failing to catch someone who is messing with your product, vandalizing products means that they often become marked unsellable, which cuts into the store’s bottom line which usually means cut hours for the workers there. Note that the people who actually make the merchandising decisions — hell, even the managers at the store who make payroll decisions — will probably see nothing more than a slight inconvenience.
So basically don’t do this, it’s not going to make people less likely to buy or sell the product, it’s mostly going to make life hard for a bunch of people who probably don’t like the Ann Coulter books or racist costumes any more than you do.
I get what they’re trying to do, but they’re not making any change by adding more stress to the lives of the employees at these stores. Write a letter to the fucking Spirit company, don’t fuck with the little guy.
ugh no seriously shit like this doesn’t do shit to the companies making the products
just makes a bunch of upset employees have to waste their time and take a lower paycheck
I think we’re getting to the point where social justice is bad for the economy now, because people are losing their jobs because other people want to make statements about race and gender. “Clever” folk need to seriously consider that working class people need the jobs to survive. Having time and means to do a funny prank does’t make it okay, because your actions cause problems for the people around you.

While I was living in China, I always dreamed of going to see Joey Pang or Wang at Tattoo Temple in Hong Kong. Joey has a 2 year waiting list, while Wang’s is 6 months. I kept putting it off, and now I’m back in the States. :(
The lesson, kids, is do no procrastinate!
Learn more about the amazing Ms. Joey Pang here
absolutely stunning. I’d totally wait that long for something from one of them
Holy shit these are so fucking beautiful I want to cry.
I WOULD WAIT TWO YEARS FOR THIS HOLY WOW
The time our entire design class dressed up for Halloween as the design teacher (who notoriously almost only wore grey sweaters and always had a cafeteria coffee in hand).
I remember him walking down a super long empty hall and we all just turned the corner at the other end and started running towards him and he ran away yelling “FUcK YOU GUYS” and in retrospect I almost can’t believe he didn’t suffer a heart attack.
Pretty sure we won a pizza party for best costume that year.

i literally can’t imagine a scenario where a person wouldn’t want these
