Bronx Firefighter Danae Mines Becomes 1st Woman Featured In FDNY Calendar of Heroes via GOOD BLACK NEWS

Danae Mines is an 11-year veteran with the FDNY and is one of New York City’s few female firefighters. Next March, Mines will also be the first woman the first woman featured in the FDNY Calendar of Heroes, even though she was initially told the calendar honor was only for men.
“I was told that it was all guys,” Mines, who is assigned to Engine Co. 60 in the South Bronx, told the Daily News.  “They said if I made it in the calendar, I would look like a pinup girl.”
But that didn’t stop her from attending an open call and breaking the gender barriers.  “I wasn’t going to let anyone tell me I couldn’t do what I wanted to do,” she said. “I was determined.”

You workin’ the same shitty jobs as we are, driving the same shitty cars, throwing around the same sad slurs for 400 years pretending you’re the great-grandchild of Aryan Royalty when your momma would’ve been a milkmaid in Sweden and your daddy face deep in cow shit.

Anonymous asked: Out of curiosity, if racism is described as discrimination and prejudice directed against someone of a different race and many census bureaus (including the US bureau) define white as a race, then how can you justify the notion that racism against white people doesn't exist?
