Tram Depot by Julian Kaesler on Flickr.Via Flickr:
The former Rozelle tram depot, located in Glebe, New South Wales, is the largest remaining tram depot in Sydney. 
Constructed in 1904, it reached peak capacity of approximately 200 trams from 1918, until its closure in 1958. The depot now contains some of the last trams to have operated on Sydney’s original tram network.
Over time the shed and trams have been heavily vandalized and covered in graffiti. It was recently announced the entire site had peen purchased to be redeveloped for medium density housing, so the future of the sheds and trams is unclear.

I will never apologize for being fat and wearing clothing that fits to the curves, rolls, flab, and folds of my body.

Is there not one about the war bonnet?

Bringin’ this back.

Not only because Halloween is coming up, but because the lovely golden-zephyr was gracious to make one about Romani “costumes”!

Remember, as this-is-not-native reminds us, there are endless cute, sexy, funny, even offensive costumes that don’t perpetuate racist stereotypes. There is really no excuse.

I’m not racist but I need to say this…

dearwhitefolk:

itsamessinmyhead:

African Americans need to fucking STOP pulling the slavery heritage card!
I’m Native American.
You know what that means? My people were mass murdered, raped, kicked off our own land, converted and guess what?
WERE THE VERY FIRST FUCKING SLAVES IN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE IT WAS OUR LAND FIRST!
You learn about The Trail of Tears in history class for about a week. WE GET ONE SMALL WEEK IN ONE CLASS. WE DON’T GET A FUCKING MONTH! You don’t hear me going around saying “Is it because I’m indian?” “You don’t get to speak to me like that, youuuuu don’t know what my ancestors went through”
First off, neither do you because you live in the 21st century.
Second off, your own people sold one another to the white men so look in the mirror and be pissed.
Third off, get the fuck overt it. You get free fucking college and benefits because of what your ancestors went through even if you’re like 1/16. I’m fucking 25% Indian but i don’t get benefits so shut the fuck up because my race got fucked harder! There is no excuse to be racist towards all white people now because all white people were once racist towards your ancestors. Past is the past, especially when it isn’t your very own past.
Slavery was fucked up.
Racism is fucked up but people need to stop pulling the race card in order to get rid of racism.
Best way to do that is picture everyone as your favourite color, that way they are all lovely and equal to you. It isn’t until you get to know them on the inside that you get to turn them to your least favourite color. I see everyone as lime green until you piss me off, then you become an ugly ass yellowish/orange color!

Dear White Folk,
Saying the phrase “I’m not racist, but” is a clear indicator that you actually are a racist.

Dear White Folk,
There is no such thing as a Race Card which gets us out of any situation.

Dear White Folk,
Colorblindness is a facet of racism.

Dear White Folk,
Good for you if you have Native American heritage, but you’re still white. Being 1/8th Cherokee or whatever or less doesn’t count. You don’t get to play the “Native American Race Card”.

Sam Greenlee on modern black filmmaking. Listen to these words! Digest them and take them as nutritional supplement to that chaos that is called modern day media.

If you want to be a rich ho, go to Hollywood. The Bling Blings are looking for a white audience.

I don’t write for black bougious intellectuals. I write for the people where I live.

There is no excuse now for black people not to be making their own films.

If you want to work for white folks, take what they got to give you, put the money in your back pocket and stop whining. And if its painful get out. You can’t have it both ways.

Once upon a time they used to own slaves. Now they just rent them.

name after reaching the holy land of Mecca: El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (hajj: the pilgrim, malik: the king, shabazz:Origin Further information: Tribe of Shabazz. A 1994 article in The American Muslim claims that the name is from the Arabic words شعب sha‘b, “a people”, and عز ‘azz, “to be mighty or glorious”. There is also a similar (but etymologically unrelated) Persian name, Shahbâz, meaning “royal falcon”. Indicating “royalty and nobility”, the name is popular with Bosnian, Turkish, Indian and Pakistani Muslims.[1]
In his book Message to the Blackman in America, Elijah Muhammad wrote that all Blacks are descended from an ancient tribe by that name:)
