I remember having an argument with a friend about how this needed to change; how we needed more POC’s in political spaces, well more representation in all spaces... but she didn’t get it... she told me the system that was in place had been working out just fine for all these years... then I said - Yeah For Who!?! We are no longer friends 🥺! #thisismyamerica Regrann from @defineamerican • Photo by 📸: @emilyshur •
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer for all Americans, and stroke is also a leading cause of death... BUT for #poc below are 3 major #health epedimics that need IMPROVEMENT. Not a conserted marketing effort to push more poison and push you to become more unhealthy:
High blood pressure Obesity Diabetes We need less salt. Not more Just my two cents.

I Woke up to 2 lovely comments calling me a sack of shit. Ironically this is why I do what I do. Because there still exists a sizeable global population That will react to a person who is not slim in this manner. I was body shamed while on the wheelchair at Changi airport, at dinner in a restaurant at Samui, upon my Arrival back to Singapore. It never ends. Some people are too afraid to say it to your face, but they allude it. Some of these people are people you have known all your lives. Others are complete strangers Who believe they have a right over any woman’s body. The thing is, what I woke up to today is a perfectly normal way to wake up every day. Except there is nothing normal about waking up To being told that you are an aberration. That you are hated. And I want my family here on Instagram to know - this is why being a person Who does not care about beauty standards can be tough but it teaches you a lot. It liberates you from everything that you have been told to believe about your Specific place In society, in your communities, in the world. Don’t stop speaking up for what you stand for. Do not to be afraid of the reactions and do not pay mind to senseless hate. you know better. #effyourbeautystandards #fatisnotaviolation#fuckfatphobia#fatwomenofcolor#fatandfree#igsg#plussize #bodypositive#southasian#losehatenotweight#woc#intersectionality#saggyboobsmatter#beyourself#selfacceptance#fatacceptance #plussizesingapore#poc#indian#blogger
