Black kid prollums

note-a-bear:

liquornspice:

I feel like I talk and people don’t hear words.  Black people speak on their other identities and experiences and folks just glaze right over it.

“We must be sensitive to people’s traumatic reactions. You Negroes need to stop yelling at me!”

“You triggered me when you called me dumb after I was racist at you! You must have compassion for people after they are triggered, so stop yelling at me!”

“Queerness is important. You wouldn’t understand, as a Black person.”

“I’ve got a brand new idea! What if we think of people like monsters or machines?  Hush up, slave-descendant Negro, this has nothing to do with you!”

“We need to talk more about what it means to be multi-racial. Black people, you should sit this one out and let us talk.”

Everything becomes a nothing when it’s transposed onto a Black body.  Trauma isn’t trauma when it happens to a Black person.  Experiences disappear if they happen to Black people.

None of this is new. People much more well-versed in this than me have more things to say. But it’s becoming clearer to me every day how I really am the anti-human.

Just needed to bold for emphasis.

I drew this “Field Guide to Cultural Appropriators” for a zine about white privilege that Oscar and I just finished! So much problematic shit goes on at my school…

That “Middle Eastern” belly dance garb is, in fact, tribal belly dance costuming. Tribal belly dance borrows from many different cultures…Turkish, North African, Romani, Indian. It’s not appropriating anything, it’s inspired by it. 

I’m legitimately wondering why you sound so defensive about this post (particularly the part that references people who steal other people’s cultures and mix them all up together). Unless you are one of those people, what’s the problem?

Tribal bellydancing?

LOL. This was veganfemme’s hilariously overly defensive response to me “Because I’m a tribal belly dancer. And the problem is people like you asserting that it is STEALING when it’s not. As I already stated, American Tribal Style belly dance is inspired by many different styles of dance from many different cultures. You can call it stealing, I’ll just call you an asshole.”. It’s even more funny because my question wasn’t necessarily that accusatory (then again, if you ARE a fucking piece of shit cultural appropriator, then I guess it automatically pisses you off that I called you out), and then I’M THE ONE that got called an asshole. It’s great because the response alone proves I was right in the first place. WIN.

So damn transparent, that veganfemme… Why can’t people just admit when they’ve done/currently engage in appropriative acts? Oh, right, cause it would mean they have to apologize to people, fess up to being wrong about something, & then re-evaluate themselves. All that reflection just to avoid further hurting already marginalized groups is hard work, man!

Lesbian Couple Tackles Homophobic Heckler

pompadoursandpincurls:

cassket:

Last weekend 22-year-old William Adam Lane spotted a lesbian couple embracing in a bar in Bellingham, Washington. He decided the only appropriate course of action was to drunkenly shout homophobic comments at them and smash the rear window of their car. Unfortunately for him, the women were total badasses. One tackled Lane and pinned him to the ground while they waited for help from a bouncer nearby. Lane was arrested for malicious harassment, which is a hate crime, and even though the women were unharmed, they may be able to press assault charges because he threatened them.

YES. BASH FUCKIN BACK.

What happens in neighborhoods where the self esteem

has been over shadowed by the decay
and the children no longer play the way they used to.

Where young boys choose to follow figures that had no father figures.
A place where lives have been reduce to mere names on a nigger wall
a lot of dead shames on a nigger wall
‘cause most of my childhood friends died over some dumb shit.

It’s like we all on some slum shit
What happened to that “We Shall Overcome” shit?
Nigger, where I’m from, shit, they done torn down the projects
And took away neighborhood sports.

It’s a place where little black boys put on jerseys and shorts.
Dream big about stardom on fine hard wood courts
but await to the harsh reality of the strip unfinished inner city floor
where life splinters.

Cold winters are sheltered by crack houses
instead of recreation centers that they claim to not have the paper
to keep open for operation.

The deconstruction of the black family has been in
perpetuation ever since Willie Lynch has set his theory in motion.
Decharacterization was his sole promotion.

Therefore, if you take the basketball out of his face and
put the coke in its place he’ll still score.
What’s a young boy to do when he doesn’t want to do wrong but there’s
a lock on the right door.

When he has the heart of a soldier, the aggression of a prize fighter
but no one has taught him what to fight for, see
most our families are fatherless and quite poor.

So we miss out on meals as well as kisses and hugs
You’ve got the audacity to cut the funding for the
facilities to keep us off the streets
then ask us Why we sell drugs?

But imagine if niggers put down their dice and guns
and picked up their daughters and sons and
put a little love right there where the hate is.

Imagine if niggers had chance to become accountants
before being taught what the difference between wet and dry weight is.
Imagine if these little inner city kids had the same type of schools
as these little rich kids had way out there in the sticks.

Imagine if niggers had the chance to
learn chemistry for real before we learn how to whip 7½ out of six.
Imagine if these little black girls could go to that dance for free
and learn to love the dream of that Broadway show.

Imagine if she wasn’t forced into a game where you assume a
filthy name to put your soul and ass up for show.
Imagine she was taught to love herself, imitate no one,
demand and demonstrate respect when she walks though the door.
Imagine if she watched the tellie and saw herself during the prime time hour instead
of the four o’clock video whore.

Imagine.

"Now, just as there was in Teddy Roosevelt’s time, there’s been a certain crowd in Washington for the last few decades who respond to this economic challenge with the same old tune. “The market will take care of everything,” they tell us. If only we cut more regulations and cut more taxes – especially for the wealthy – our economy will grow stronger. Sure, there will be winners and losers. But if the winners do really well, jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everyone else. And even if prosperity doesn’t trickle down, they argue, that’s the price of liberty.

It’s a simple theory – one that speaks to our rugged individualism and healthy skepticism of too much government. And that theory fits well on a bumper sticker. Here’s the problem: It doesn’t work. It has never worked. It didn’t work when it was tried in the decade before the Great Depression. It’s not what led to the incredible post-war boom of the 50s and 60s. And it didn’t work when we tried it during the last decade."

Therefore I am mad and will name call because I have no real logic to show you that I am not doing what you say I am doing.”

What you said in the bolded. I a,m just sick and tired of watching bellydancing be held up as a way for white females to find their womanliness or what the fuck ever in the first place. And any damn thing with “tribal” in the middle of it where white people are concerned makes me pretty fucking wary to begin with. 

Um, folks?  When it comes to this tribal bellydance stuff?  You CANNOT get in the way of anything these ladies think is “empowering” to their femininity. Seriously. No matter how liberal, progressive, down with being an ally: they will come for you with Professor Morariarty’s arsenal if you question their empowerment activities.

(Which women get to be empowered about their femininity and how is another topic entirely.)

Here’s my take on the Native American dispute
These are a few of my authentic (and not-so-authentic) Native American and Mexican accessories. I have made a few of these, gotten them from antique stores, and a few even came from the mall. But hear this:
I am as white as can be and I wear all kinds of (authentic) Native American jewelry and clothing. I wear feathers and moccasins and Pendleton and ponchos and Taxco and Zuni. I make traditional loom-beaded pieces and I make dream catchers. Before you say that I’m ripping off an elegant culture with my trashy hipster demeanor, consider that I have studied the cultures I am representing quite a bit. I collect antiques and have therefore acquired the knowledge and understanding of the pieces I own. I understand the power and significance of each of these things, of the animals, totems, patterns etc. and I am probably not the only white person who does. Just because I am white and I’m dressing in this style does not make me ignorant. I have a great amount of respect for Native Americans. However, the stuff they sell at Forever 21 and H&M can be justified - take a step back and realize that it is only a fashion trend. It may not make any sense, but it doesn’t really have to because some of these things are interpretations on the classic style of Native American dress. This trend originated in the 1960s with the “hippie” movement and has faded in and out to now. 
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guys.

Oh man here we go again..
“I studied it lol so I know it and I have a right to it, I’m just committing cultural appropriation be flattered goddammit, it’s just a fashion trend no way is it continuing the genocide of your people! why cant you guys just shut up already and accept that the demeaning and cultural appropriation of your people is perfectly normal and should be accepted!!!1!1!”
I hate everything.

The bold is why no one gives a fuck what you think and why your opinion really doesn’t matter.

“As a white person, let me tell you why you Native Americans shouldn’t be offended by all the offensive things I do. I’m obviously an authority. Obviously.”

These are the exact words people use when I try to explain why the keffiyeh (worn wrong) around the neck of a non-Arab irritates and frustrates me to the point where I must look away or battle the urge to strangle them with it.
“We know it means a lot to your culture. We’re just appreciating your culture, We’ve read about it in books, and understand you. It’s just a mainstream trend now, all the places are selling them; it’s just a hipster scarf, no big deal. Why are you so upset?“

"They call themselves conservatives but that’s not it, either. They don’t want to conserve what we now have. They’d rather take the country backwards – before the 1960s and 1970s, and the Environmental Protection Act, Medicare, and Medicaid; before the New Deal, and its provision for Social Security, unemployment insurance, the forty-hour workweek, and official recognition of trade unions; even before the Progressive Era, and the first national income tax, antitrust laws, and Federal Reserve. They’re not conservatives. They’re regressives. And the America they seek is the one we had in the Gilded Age of the late nineteenth century."

"Misogyny is a systematic and institutionalized form of bigotry and oppression that permeates through every aspect of our society in ways that can be obvious or more subtle (rape culture and its perpetuation can be obvious or subtle and can sometimes be difficult for a man who has never felt its effects to detect, but either way it’s horrifying.) Misandry is not systematic and it is not institutionalized. The distrust or hatred of men is a rational reaction to misogyny, which is ubiquitous and static. Statements like “can’t we all just be friends?” assume that there exists a level playing field. Until this level playing field truly exists, statements like these can easily be dismissed as childish, naive, shallow, frivolous and boring."

My Blu Tinted Glasses: This is what oppressed people hear when you talk about how being yelled at for being oppressive bothers you.

This is what oppressed people hear when you talk about how being yelled at for being oppressive bothers you.

pompadoursandpincurls:

dumbthingswhitepplsay:

“Stop before you get angry that I am the 40th or 50th person to spout oppressive crap at you since your day started early this morning. Think about me. What if I, the person who is adding onto the avalanche of 40 or 50 people who regularly contribute to your daily torture, have feelings about anger and yelling? I know you are probably thinking about how you can’t take it anymore, but you really need to think about ME and MY feelings. I didn’t mean to be the 40th or 50th person to give you crap today. You’re blaming me for what other people did to you. You need to treat each person individually, even though it’s the culmination of ALL of us that left you in the shithole you are in.

You need to hold YOURSELF in and not curse at me, because that hurts me, and we all know who it is all about. (It’s not you.) I know I hurt you first without warning and you spent your day being hurt by others who are like me without warning either, but really, I am the person who matters here, and I personally don’t think I deserve to receive the backlash that you have meted out. You need to deal with me on MY terms, because MY terms are the terms that are important.

If you curse at me, I will call you verbally abusive and call you a bully. It’s not as if your people aren’t known for being SO hostile already, but I am going to be further oppressive by telling you that you are being too hostile. Instead of leaving the conversation and dealing with MY issue, that I caused by not being responsible and educating MYself on how I oppress others, I am going to continue to oppress you by telling you that I matter, regardless of you. And you need to accept that. Or else I will continue to contribute to your oppression by forcing my dialogue on you. And you are not allowed to be angry about that, either. You hostile verbally abusive asshole.”

One teachers approach to preventing gender bullying in a classroom

togetherforjacksoncountykids:

“It’s Okay to be Neither,” By Melissa Bollow Tempel

Alie arrived at our 1st-grade classroom wearing a sweatshirt with a hood. I asked her to take off her hood, and she refused. I thought she was just being difficult and ignored it. After breakfast we got in line for art, and I noticed that she still had not removed her hood. When we arrived at the art room, I said: “Allie, I’m not playing. It’s time for art. The rule is no hoods or hats in school.”

She looked up with tears in her eyes and I realized there was something wrong. Her classmates went into the art room and we moved to the art storage area so her classmates wouldn’t hear our conversation. I softened my tone and asked her if she’d like to tell me what was wrong.

“My ponytail,” she cried.

“Can I see?” I asked.

She nodded and pulled down her hood. Allie’s braids had come undone overnight and there hadn’t been time to redo them in the morning, so they had to be put back in a ponytail. It was high up on the back of her head like those of many girls in our class, but I could see that to Allie it just felt wrong. With Allie’s permission, I took the elastic out and re-braided her hair so it could hang down.

“How’s that?” I asked.

She smiled. “Good,” she said and skipped off to join her friends in art.

One tutsi one huti, two mates, Rwanda.
Can you see the difference? A tutsi is tall, thin & light skinned, while a hutu is short, stout and darker skinned. I can only see a tiny difference, and that is that the boy to the right might be a tutsi because his skin does seem a little brighter than the one to the left. But in my eyes, I see two human beings, two beautiful African boys with a skin color that I deeply admire. But the Belgian colonists didn’t, they were racist narrow minded people, who helped to ruin Rwanda. 
“When Belgian colonialists arrived in Rwanda in 1916, they favored the Tutsi minority over the Hutu majority. The Belgians viewed the Tutsi as more similar to Europeans and, therefore, deemed them to be more intelligent. The clergy in Rwanda were complicit in creating and maintaining divisions between Tutsi and Hutu. Tutsi were awarded better jobs and had greater educational opportunities, a distinction reinforced by the development of separate educational systems. 
The Belgians classified them by their physical traits, too: they considered Tutsi to be tall, thin and light-skinned and Hutu to be short, stout and darker skinned. In the early 1930s, to solidify the division between Tutsi and Hutu, the Belgians produced identity cards classifying individuals according to their ethnic group: Hutu, Tutsi or Twa. These identity cards, still in use in the 1990s, led many Tutsi to their death by readily identifying them to the génocidaires.” (Read more here) 
If we study the origins of the Rwandan genocide we’ll realize it was because of white Europeans it started; the hatred between tutsis & hutus. Now I won’t blame the Europeans for the killings carried out by both these groups on one another, but if they didn’t favor one people over another none of this would have happened. If they simply didn’t make divisions between two people, who in fact are one so many lives would have been spared. But the West is still to blame, let me give you an example: “On July 29 President Clinton ordered 200 U.S. troops to occupy the Kigali airport so that relief could be flown directly into Rwanda. Ahead of their arrival, Dallaire says he got a phone call. A U.S. officer was wondering precisely how many Rwandans had died. Dallaire was puzzled and asked why he wanted to know. ‘We are doing our calculations back here,’ the U.S. officer said, ‘and one American casualty is worth about 85,000 dead.’”

A portrait of people with albinism in Pakistan.
Albinism is a recessive genetic condition which comes in several different forms, and can effect people of any race or ethnicity. 1 out of 75 people is a carrier of the gene. In order for a person to be albinistic both of their parents must be carriers of the gene. In that case, there is a 25% chance the child will have albinism, 50% chance they will be a carrier or the albinism gene, and a 25% chance they will have normal genes. It is a condition found all over the world, however like many genetic conditions it is more rare in cosmopolitan societies where people tend to marry outside their group.

asianhistory:


Qiu Jin (November 8, 1875 -  July 15, 1907) was a Chinese anti-Qing Empire revolutionary, feminist  and writer. She was executed after a failed uprising and today is  considered a hero in China.
“The Woman Knight of Mirror Lake.”
Born in Minhou, Fujian Province, Qiu grew up in Shanyin Village,  Shaoxing Subprefecture, Zhejiang Province. Married, Qiu found herself in  contact with new ideas. In 1904 she decided to travel overseas and  study in Japan, leaving her two children behind. She was known by her  acquaintances for wearing Western male dress and for her left-wing  ideology. She joined the Triads, who at the time advocated the overthrow  of the Qing dynasty and return of Chinese government to the Chinese  people. She joined the anti-Qing societies Guangfuhui, led by Cai  Yuanpei, and the Tokyo-based Tongmenghui led by Sun Yat-sen. She  returned to China in 1905.
She was an eloquent orator who spoke out for women’s rights, such as  the freedom to marry, freedom of education, and abolishment of bound  feet. In 1906 she founded a radical women’s journal with another female  poet, Xu Zihua, in Shanghai. In 1907 she became head of the Datong  school in Shaoxing, ostensibly a school for sport teachers, but really  intended for the military training of revolutionaries.
After an uprising led by her cousin Xu Xilin failed in July 1907, Qiu  was arrested in her school. She was tortured by Qing officials in order  to make her reveal secrets but did not succumb; a few days later she  was publicly executed in her home village, Shanyin, at the age of 31.
Qiu was immortalized in Republican China’s popular consciousness and  literature after her death. She is now buried beside West Lake in  Hangzhou. The People’s Republic of China established a museum for her in  Shaoxing City.
