do people say “bad neighborhood” for cities next to all-white high schools where the boys are getting high every day and raping girls? do they even say “bad neighborhood” for cities with large kkk meetings? or is bad neighborhood a strictly anti-black code?

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.
Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.
casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.
Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.
what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!
#and it focused on female friendships!!! her best friends were never less than her!! and older female best friends!! and didn’t pit her against vivian but had them grow into close friends!!#THE MOST IMPORTANT FEMINIST MEDIA OF OUR TIME
Yea I feel the same everytime I put hispanic on the application. I wonder if I put black and white will I get the job.
'Crazy'? Not at all. This is every day White Supremacy. WHen I got hired (I have an extemely AngloSaxon name, like literally my first and last names are synonymous with.. anyway, everyone in my family has very Anglo names), my boss, a very WASPy young ditz, casually told me how she looked through resumes and threw them away if she couldn't pronounce the name. As if I was supposed to find that funny. Not that it matters, but an example of a name she'd put into the trash bin? Magdalena.
My boss told me the same thing. It’s some fucked up nonsense.
