Some face sketches I did today while trying to fight against a minor art block uhh
at the edge of the world
at last, let me die
with my face tilted, free
up at the endless sky
(“I’d rather nobody else kill me but you, corporal.”)
(the au where eren’s last request is to die on the beach oh god mfw i finished this I’M NOT CRYING IT’S JUST RAINING INDOORS ON MY FACE)
My wife and I are thinking of adopting and shockingly found in Texas, the cost for a white infant was $35,000 and the cost of a black infant was $17,000 – these are published numbers on private adoption websites.
BUT OMG RACISM DOESN’T EXIST!
That is seriously disturbing.
That’s not even like, a minor difference. Jesus.
And yet people don’t wanna hear it when I say black bodies are LITERALLY devalued.
I HEARD this is because there are more available black babies than there are white ones. So it costs more to have a white child. You know like in economics. If there isn’t a lot of a certain product it’s going to cost more and all.
Even if that last comment were true, that still doesn’t replace the fact that adoption agencies are segregating children by color. That’s still them saying, “We have a surplus of black babies so we’re going to drop the price,” as opposed to, “We have a surplus of babies so we’re going to make EVERY adoption cost less.”
