Hi :) I'm Jess
I'm from LA; I complain about it even though I love my city.
I love going to concerts
I love love love music
(see section below)
I mostly post about my favorite musicians here, like Arctic Monkeys & The Strokes. I admire many others that you'll see pop up in this blog.

Regarding my previous post

Once I was at Starbucks sharing a table with my roommate. My plan was to study there all day (like I often did). So I got there earlier than 6am to secure a table for my roommate and me. There were at least 4 other tables around us and several others on the opposite side. Sometime in the afternoon a group of white girls came in and saw all tables were taken. What happened next really got me so mad. They went directly to our table and asked when we were leaving. When I said we would be there all day they went “ugh” & left Starbucks. I took it personally bc out everyone they came up to us then left. I looked around and most of the people around us were white, my roommate and I were the only Latinas. So these bitches not only offended me and my roommate but also fucked up my concentration for the rest of the day.

Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life. Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.  In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and ‪#‎stopracism‬.” -Roukaya Mabizari

this is so fucked up


This is fucked up. This dumb bitch was explicitly racist that way you can spot the cunt easily. I think about my college experience and the times I experienced implicit racism. When you know it is there and you just experienced it but it happened in such a way that could be brushed off as something other than racism.
