why the sky is dark at night 

We are surrounded by on all sides by stars. They literally fill the sky all around us, but if this is the case, shouldn't our night sky be lit up with stars? Yes, we should, except!!! Those stars are so far away that their light hasn't reached us yet! So now you know why the sky is dark at night, even though we're surrounded by stars.

how to tell if a lime is ripe, this may surprise you! 

Oh here’s a fun fact about limes: they’re ripe when they’re yellow! A green lime is actually unripe. I am not sure why stores stock them green, maybe so you can tell them from the lemons!

how to tell whether a watermelon is ripe 🍉 

It’s really easy to tell if a watermelon is ripe! First off: thumping doesn’t help, and weight isn’t really a good indicator. But that’s okay because the easiest way to tell is by color. Look for a spot on the melon that’s lighter in color than the rest of the rind: this is the spot that was touching the ground while the melon was growing! If that spot is white, the melon isn’t good yet. When that spot turns yellow, the watermelon is ripe!

how to tell if a pear is ripe, this will change your relationship to pears 

None of you know how to ripen a pear and that’s okay! I am here to help. A perfectly ripe pear is one of life’s great joys but most folks don’t know how to identify one! So they get a bad rap.

The thing is, pears ripen from the core outward, so by the time the flesh is soft on the outside it’s too late! What you want to do is feel the flesh right around the stem, when it's soft the pear is ripe. Try it! 🍐

Give black people your extra money.

Let black people be themselves.

Stop calling the cops on black people for existing.

Stop putting your feelings over people's humanity.

so it's extremely disrespectful to see a non black person with their hair "matted" calling them dreadlocks. how do you claim to be woke at all about anything if you intentionally chose a hairstyle that literally means "fuck white people" ??????? from the point of view of slavery????????

Zack boosted

when black people first started wearing our hair in dreadlocks intentionally, it stood as a direct symbol of black pride and anti white supremacy. since we knew the white people thought it was horrible, we wore it to reclaim and have pride for the beauty of what our hair can do. it's interesting, now, that having dreadlocks still bothers white people to the point where we're barred from jobs, told to cut them in schools, and expected to upkeep them in eurocentric ways.
