Thankful that I have food to post, a camera to have taken this picture, a phone to be typing on and people that I want to share this moment with. It is appreciation of the small things that make life brighter and the appreciation of everything that make you happy.
“I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. [some whistles and cheers from the audience] Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to.” Chris Rock
Well, America in a nutshell
“The black man gotta fly to get somethin’ the white man can walk to.”

i feel like an open book.
just imagine a room full of dads all wearing polo shirts and sneakers telling awful jokes to each other and they all find it hilarious
Oh god my dad would be in that room
you walk into the room and go: “dad please let’s go home i am hungry”
and they all turn around collectively and chant: “HI HUNGRY I’M DAD”
