N.O. lawyer transforms Whitney Plantation into powerful slavery museum

BY MIMI READ

WALLACE — At Whitney Plantation, one of the antebellum estates that line the Great River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, the architectural centerpiece is a Creole-style main house where hand-painted ceilings are adorned with flowers and vines. Out front are a matching pair of pigeonniers and an alley of oak trees whose branches theatrically drag the ground.

It’s easy to imagine a typical moonlight-and-magnolias tour unfolding here, with guides in hoop skirts expounding on the antiques — except that Whitney’s owner, John Cummings, will have none of that.

“Who in the hell built this house?” Cummings thundered recently while ferrying a couple of visitors around Whitney’s 250 acres in a golf cart through the rain. “Who built this son of a bitch? We have to own our history.”

That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school.

This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…


men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.


THE NOTES ON THIS


because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.” 

BUT THISTHISTHISTHISTHIS

so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT

Forever grateful for this post for removing the shame of going into a different store and finding that the pants do not fit me even though I am WEARING the “same size” pants right that moment.

when i worked in retail, i tried to explain this concept to customers all the time, and they always got angry with me like i was lying about how ridiculous women’s sizing is.

I work in a clothing store and out of nowhere they decided to scale ALL of the women’s sizes down. No warning. They didn’t even tell us, the people selling them! Just all of a sudden everyone (including myself) had to go up a size. Total voodoo, not even consistent within the brand. The number literally means shit.

I used to be a brand specialist in a department store, and I can tell you why they do this. You go from store to store and try on a billion jeans, and then you finally find a brand and style that you like, so next time you need jeans, you go to that one. It’s forcing you into brand loyalty, since the average person doesn’t have time to shop every store in the world

imagine stabbing someone with this knife.

it would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.

if you want information it is

and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin

why would you stab a PERSON when you can have TOAST?

there’s the hufflepuff
