Louis C.K. (via 30thcenturyboy)
Slavery in the territory that is now the United States lasted more than 330 years. We will be 330 years removed from slavery in the year 2195.
It blows my mind when people deny that the effects of slavery can still be felt today. Oh, you think that 330 years of slavery has no effect now that it’s been abolished for 140 years? What world are you living in?(via iamayoungfeminist)
