"The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It’s simple: to master money, you must manage money."
- T. Harv Eker
My students are limited in many resources at home and at school because of the low-economic area they live in. As their teacher and role model, I want to ensure my students are on a path to being successful adults. Many of my students because of their disadvantaged backgrounds have little to no opportunities to learn about financial literacy. They spend their allowance or parents’ earnings on toys or snacks without thinking about the consequences of these small expenditures can add up over time.


It is important to teach students the value of saving money early on to save for important things in the future such as a college education. The possibilities are endless when my students can use a Mac Book Air laptop to access online financial literacy activities. The students will become financial literate as they engage in games and activities that teach them about budgeting, credit/debit, and saving.
I am requesting a Mac Book Air laptop to teach financial literacy in a fun 21st century way to my students. Studies have shown that students who are financially literate become financially responsible young adults regardless of income level.

In 1923, Rosewood was a primarily Black town in Florida. One day a White woman living in a nearby town had been beaten and robbed. Afraid they would find the real attacker who was her husband, she told police and her town residents that it was a Black man. Immediately a mob of White men and women took to the streets to find the so called attacker. The first Black Man they ran into was Sam Carter. He was tortured relentlessly until he admitted to participating in the White woman’s attack. After being forced to admit something he did not do, they shot him in the head in front of his wife. This was not enough and they continued their reign of terror. The mob traveled across town killing and burning down any and everything they saw in their sight. They burned houses, stores, and almost all the BLACK CHURCHES. Eventually the Black town residents had enough and they began to fight back but this did not amount to much because the Mob had grown too big. The most disturbing event of the entire standoff was the murder of a 4 year old Black girl. As the little girl lay over her mother’s dead body crying, two members of the white mob grabbed her by her ankles and threw her into a nearby burning building. Days later after the town was deserted and things calmed down, the mob returned to check for survivors and burn anything else they had missed.  The Rosewood Massacre is something that is rarely spoken of these days. Over 150 Black Residents were killed; many of their bodies found hanging from trees. Very few of the Black Residents managed to escape and others would never return to the land they had spent their whole lives developing. White people have committed the most atrocious acts the world could ever imagine against Black people. Don’t ever let them convince you to forget.

This is what they call fun and games. Go look up the origins of the term “picnic” and then look up “gator bait.”

I present the most badass gifset on Tumblr.

Legitimately turned on by this

This is the best thing.

Oh my god

I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.

Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.

Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so fucking cool.

(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best damn Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)

Almost every Black person knows that talking about racism or even mentioning race gets them attacked. To think that Black people attempt to get through life “playing the race card” shows that a person is out of touch with reality, willfully ignorant or brazenly obtuse.

Black people have to bite their tongue and suffer and silence because the ramifications of speaking about racism are just too severe.
