White people using henna isn't "stealing other peoples cultures" you're idea are incorrect and racist. It's perfectly acceptable to strip people of their culture and identity but when someone is genuinely interested in an aspect of someone else's culture all of a sudden it's "cultural appropriation". That is racist and hateful. Wears all one.

lolololololol no we are all not one. 

& yes u can call me racist because I hate white people that ever condemned me because of the way I dressed or looked. Being the only Indian in the whole school, there was no one to back me up then so I all I did was cry about it but not anymore. 

& I’m a united states citizen now, I have freedom of speech so I can say what ever the fuck I want to especially since its true that white people are stealing my culture. It’s not called being “genuinely interested” if 5 years ago, you were like “ew” at my henna and indian clothes but suddenly you get to these unis and get your henna on and indian clothes because suddenly its cool to you and so boho chic. 

I doubt anybody "asked you that" You tumblr assholes just like to make up things so you can cry "cultural appropriation" as if you are some kind of fucking spokesman for all indians. You want notes? Do something cool. Don't just make your race into an accessory.


first of all, I did not make that for notes. It literally happened to me yesterday in class and I just posted about it. I logged on and I was surprised the post actually blew up with notes. 

Cry “cultural appropriation”????? Yes, I cried that everytime some white asshole made fun of me in school at every single thing about my culture. I couldn’t wear bindis or wear regular indian clothes because I was called names from the time I got on the bus to the time I got out of school. 

I am a spokesman for all indians, all indians are spokesmen for all indians. We want you “tumblr assholes” to understand that just because you find my culture suddenly cool, does not mean you can erase everything that us Indians have been crying about for past years and make my cultural aspects your norm accessories. STFU and go get a life.

Nineteen things I’ve learned before I turned nineteen.
1. Always carry $5 and a lighter with you (even if you don’t smoke).
2. Ask every person you meet how their day is going. Genuinely ask with the soul intention of learning how their day is. Ask the coffee shop employee. Ask the person next to you in line at Walmart. Ask your distant friend. Ask everyone.
3. Take many photos of yourself. Take photos of yourself when you’re happy. Take photos of yourself when you’re sad. Take photos of yourself because there are millions of trees in the world, and we all look at the same sky, but there is only one of you.
4. Stay in contact with your parents. Try not to hate them. They are the reason you have the ability to feel anything at all. Try not to hate your parents.
5. Opening your skin will not set your demons free. Open your heart. Open your mind. Open your hands.
6. Nobody knows anybody completely. That’s okay.
7. Be gentle, but be aggressive. Take a stand. Nobody hears your voice if you stay silent.
8. Respect everybody. We are all humans trying to survive. We all deserve respect.
9. Wearing black will ALWAYS make you feel better about yourself.
10. Always give tips, whether it be a couple extra dollars or a piece of mind. You never know how much you could be helping someone.
11. Change is the only thing consistent in life. Do not allow that bother you. Embrace chance and move with life, whichever direction it chooses to take you.
12. Smile often. Smile at strangers. Smile at your friends. Smile when nobody is looking and you’re alone in your bedroom. Smile when somebody is rambling to you.
13. Body image means nothing. Your body is merely just a seatbelt in the car. Your body is here to protect you. You choose the direction you go, and your body will not hold you back. Only you can hold yourself back.
14. Don’t hold grudges. Don’t allow yourself to hate anybody. Forgive them. Learn to love them for the person you never got to see them to be. Believe that a beautiful human exists in that person. Wish them well.
15. Drink orange juice. Lot’s of it.
16. Don’t allow the opinions of others to choose your destiny. We are all simply trying to live our own life.
17. Sing all the time. Sing off key. Sing in a silly voice. Sing like you’re on stage. Sing no matter who is around. Singing is breathing for the soul. Sing.
18. Take time to think. Write your feelings down. Write letters to the people you love. Texting is overrated and not as heartfelt as a nice handwritten letter.
19. Live for yourself. Breathe for yourself. Do everything in your life for nobody but you. This is your life. This is it.

If I tell you my problems and you reply with “oh everyone has problems, not just you.” I don’t think I want you in my life. 

My dad has been so mean to me since he came back from india. Before I used to be like his “son” too and I would do all the hard work outside to help him. But ever since he saw all these stick figure cousins of mine, he came back and makes fun of me all the time and leaves me out in his work we used to do before. He always calls my sister to do them because he thinks Im not strong enough. My parents even support me not eating to lose weight.
