let’s put all of this into prospective for a moment.
if you believe in racism against white people
if you do and still believe in racism against white people
get off this planet
Geez this brought tears to my eyes.
Taken from the October issue of Ebony Magazine; I’m pretty sure it is readable from the photos I took. The first sentence of this article is extremely poignant;
"This is not a pleasant conversation to have with you because, in a sense, it is an acknowledgement that we have not created a world for you where this talk isn’t necessary."
Read that. Then read it again. And again. And marinate on that for a bit.
I never much care of people reblog stuff I post, but I hope people reblog this, because it’s pretty important on a lot of different levels.
-Marissa Alexander has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. Marissa is the victim here. Her husband beat her while she was pregnant. After yet another beating, Alexander fired a warning shot which traveled through a wall and into the ceiling. That shot saved her life. Prosecutor Angela Corey did not take into account that Marissa Alexander: Had a court injunction against her crazed husband,Had Given Birth 9 Days Earlier,Was trained to use a concealed weapon and earned a concealed weapons permit.

that’s beyond disgusting
but white people wanna say ‘it’s just halloween’
'black face is just a joke'
So the students at Lycée Victor Hugo are building barricades outside their school this morning. [x]
Just in case you’re still wondering - high school students in Paris are protesting about foreign students being deported!
A fifteen year old Roma girl called Leonarda Dibrani and her family were deported to Kosovo earlier in the month, which has sparked demonstrations all over Paris. Basically, people are angry about the anti-immigration rhetoric of some in the interior ministry (cough Manuel Valls cough) and the case of Leonarda, along with that of another student who was deported to Armenia, has pushed things over the edge.
SO YES BASICALLY BAD THINGS ARE HAPPENING TO ROMA STUDENTS AND THE REST OF THE STUDENTS ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT AND CONSEQUENTLY, BARRICADES.
I’m trying to get as many people as possible to report these two, because they basically jumped onto that post about the girl who did blackface on Twitter and they’re attacking anyone who says anything bad about the white girl. They told me I should be hung, misgendered me, etc. I can handle that. It’s the subsequent posts that were alarming.
All of them should be taken off of our money.
Americans complain about politicians today yet continue to worship the ones of history like they were any fucking different than the pieces of shit we have in Congress/White House today.
George Washington owned hundreds of slaves. Pennsylvania had a gradual abolition law… but, oh… Washington got around that. The Washingtons would rotate their slaves in and out of the state every 6 months so that the slaves could never establish residency in Pennsylvania (called “dower slaves”). He sent weapons and money to the French slave masters during the Haitian Revolution… and he signed the Fugitive Slave Act, which allowed White slave masters re-enslave freemen (I guess he had just cause since his own slaves were also running away…Henry Washington, Oney Judge, Hercules…). Fuck him.
Abraham Lincoln was racist. He didn’t intend on freeing a damn soul.. and if it weren’t for the pompous idiot Southerners who were stupid enough to think they could secede and the work of Frederick Douglass and other abolitionists, Blacks would probably still be slaves today. And in the first place, Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in rebellion states, meaning, the states Lincoln had no reach or control over. “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races” Fuck him.
Whitescholars try desperately to make Alexander Hamilton seem like a good guy. Idgaf if he spoke out against slavery sometimes, he owned slaves too. He owned another human beings’ life! He did support Toussaint Louverture in Haiti though. Maybe if he would have lived longer, he would have done more to redeem himself and this nation, but he got shot in a duel and died.
My fellow Tennessean Andrew Jackson was Hitler. He murdered Natives and stole their lands. And, slavery was the source of all his wealth. Of all the men on our currency, he is the most despicable and vile.
Ulysses S. Grant… Fought for the Union army. Tried to squash the KKK (but failed).. tried to enact a Civil Rights Act. Nothing bad about him, right? Wrong. He also owned slaves. And his infamous General Order No. 11 expelled all Jews from Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi (his area of military control). Under his presidency, Little Big Horn happened. Natives in the West were murdered and their land stolen under his watch. He mitigated his government’s Native policy of brutality. Fuck him.
Benjamin Franklin spoke about “liberty” but owned slaved for most of his life! Yeah, right before he died, he became an abolitionist … but what can we make of that when he also wrote that the importation of slaves will “darken” the American race, which should remain “lovely” and White. He was a huge anti-Semite. He argued that Jews should not be allowed in the country. Fuck him. And as much as America likes to slut shame, it’s odd that they put an international hoe like Franklin on their money.
Thomas Jefferson was a racist piece of shit. Nearly every fucking Black stereotype that we have to endure today can be found in Thomas Jefferson’s writings. How the fuck can you write “All men are created equal” and own slaves and believe Black people to be inferior at the same damn time? He wrote shit like Black women have big sexual appetites like primates in African jungles…. and yet at the same time, he’s fucking raping Sally Hemmings, his dead wife’s sister and his slave.
And Americans worship these men. They worship them. It’s disgusting. Until they take these politicians off U.S. money, the U.S. will continue to be the sham it’s always been. The American nightmare it’s always been.
And to any apologists out there.. who think “Well.. it was a different time.. blah blah blah.” Please, save me your naive cliched responses veiled in the racism of YOUR time. There were many people out there who didn’t believe what these men believed. There were many people who didn’t do this stuff. They spoke out against this stuff. The men themselves knew they were full of shit the moment they signed the version of the Constitution that didn’t have the slaves freedom included in it. They knew they were full of shit just like you know you’re full shit of shit today as you sit back and watch the prison industrial complex claim Black and Brown lives and as the military kills thousands of people abroad and you utter not one peep until Paula Deen is fired… then you’re outraged. Fuck you too.
A Wyoming newspaper reported that the KKK has “seen a rush of recruits due to the presidency of Barack Obama—mostly men in their 20s and 30s, angry, violent and ready for action.”
A Montana recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan named John Abarr met in Casper, Wyoming, last weekend with members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. It’s believed to be the first such meeting in history and was called by the Casper branch of the NAACP because the KKK has been distributing flyers in the economically depressed Wyoming coal town of Gillette, where there has also been a rash of hate crime recently. A few days before the meeting, Abarr, who ran unsuccessfully for Montana’s US House seat in 2011, tweeted the following:
Get Active and move to the Northwest Aryan Homeland and secure the existence of the White Race and a future for White Children— John Abarr (@TheHoodedone33)
Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, told the Associated Pressthat the meeting was “outrageous and counterproductive” as it “gives legitimacy to the Klan as an organization you can talk to.” At the very least, it was awkward. Here are the six most uncomfortable moments:
1. “Next Question.” From the Casper Star-Tribune: "A certain amount of segregation is a good thing, [Abarr] says. White police should stay in white neighborhoods and black officers in black neighborhoods. Color-blindness doesn’t even make sense. Interracial marriage? No. It’s better if the races are kept separate. Completely opposed. ‘Because we want white babies,’ he says. The line hangs in the air. Next question.”
2. “What I Like to Do is Recruit Really Radical Kids” From the Star-Tribune: "[Abarr] says he’s seen a rush of recruits due to the presidency of Barack Obama—mostly men in their 20sand 30s, angry, violent and ready for action. ‘What I like to do is recruit really radical kids, then calm them down after they join,’ he says. Sometimes recruits will decide Abarr’s Klan isn’t hateful enough and go somewhere else. As long as recruits look white and think white, that’s good enough for Abarr, even though some potential recruits have ‘confessed’ to him they’re quarter Mexican.”
3. “Just Terrible” From the Star-Tribune: “Beatings of black men in Gillette? Those are hate crimes, Abarr agrees. Something must be done. Talk to the police. His tone is clear: Who would think of doing such a thing? Just terrible.”
4. “I did not give it a green light” From the Star-Tribune: Rosemary Lytle, president of the NAACP Colorado Montana Wyoming State Conference, says the meeting wasn’t even supposed to happen in the first place. “In fact, I did not give it it a green light when it was proposed,” she told the paper. “The appropriate chain of command would have started with my approval.”
5. Getting Insight Nevertheless, “Abarr told The Associated Press on Tuesday he filled out an NAACP membership form so he could get the group’s newsletters and some insight into its views. He said he paid a $30 fee to join, plus a $20 donation.”
6. “I’d Love to Shake Your Hand” From the Star-Tribune: NAACP member Mel Hamilton, in summing up the meeting, says: “I’d love to shake your hand tonight and truly believe that you have good will towards all people, and I can’t seem to come to that point.”
"to legitimize the klan as an organization"
gotdamnit white people leave
he doesn’t care that there are violent white ppl who leave his group because he isn’t hateful enough because they’re white and believe in his supremacist bullshit
Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley - U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use ‘Hiroshima’ Tactics for ‘Total War’ on Islam.
The commanders, lieutenant colonels, captains and colonels who sat in Dooley’s classroom, listening to the inflammatory material week after week, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the U.S. military.
Please read that again:
The historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina[’s] destruction.”
He also said:
Saudi Arabia [should be] threatened with starvation. Mecca and Madina destroyed. Islam reduced to cult status.
This is Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley’s Joint Staff Forces College presentation on “A Counter-Jihad Op Design Model” (.pdf) that calls for violent measures in a war against Islam. If this is the mentality of an individual providing lectures to the army, imagine the impact he has on those listening to him and following his orders. I don’t know what to say anymore.
I would like to see them try.
Just in case you needed to be reminded that much of the US’s and the rest of the West’s foreign policy in the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa is rooted in Islamophobic-xenophobia and military-imperialism. (via the-uncensored-she)
but whatever support the troops right? the army is great right nothing racist about American amirite?
[Dave] Chappelle wasn’t having a meltdown. This was a Black artist shrugging the weight of White consumption, deciding when enough was enough. This isn’t the first time Chappelle has done so and it isn’t the first time his behavior has been characterized as a meltdown.
There is a long history of asking African-Americans to endure racism silently; it’s characterized as grace, as strength. Chappelle’s Connecticut audience, made up of largely young White males, demanded a shuck and jive. Men who seemed to have missed the fine satire of the Chappelle show demanded he do characters who, out of the context of the show look more like more racist tropes, than mockery of America’s belief in them.
When he expressed shock that he’d sat there and been yelled at for so long, people yelled they paid him. They felt paying for a show meant they could verbally harass him, direct him in any tone of voice, as though they’d bought him." — Dave Chappelle Didn’t Meltdown (via brashblacknonbeliever)
