"But I ask you, and I always ask rich intellectual people that like to talk about Palestine, I always ask them if someone came inside your home and you asked them why are you here, they respond by saying ‘because in the scripture that God gave to me He said this house belongs to me’. You would say no get out of my house. But they ignore you and go on to kill your father, your brother, they kill your mother, they kill your uncle they kill everyone except the children and they stay in the house. And those children that they did not kill even though they cannot get back into their house every time those children pass by that house they pick up a stone and throw it at that house. Now I would ask you are those children criminals? If those children if that’s all they can do is throw rocks at the people that stoled their house would those children be criminals? The person said ‘no that is a very pathetic situation’ I said that is the condition of Palestine. There is nothing but children throwing stones and facing tanks, but that’s all they can do. And I will always say that if these children have rocks to throw and the heart to face tanks they must face the tanks and they must continue to throw stones. Because that is an act of honor, and if there are no more men to throw stones to carry on the honor of these people then the children they must continue to throw stones."

Happy Birthday Dr. Huey P. Newton (Co-founder of the Black Panther Party); because they don’t want us to know he had a Ph.D in Social Science. They want us to think he was just some ignorant, trouble-making thug.

White people will use one black/ person of color who says 

  • Cultural appropriation isn’t a thing
  • black face isn’t racist
  • the N-word is just a word
  • etc

and expect you to just accept it.

Use one white person out of millions as an example of racism and they won’t shut up about how “Not ALL white people…blah blah blah”.

because “not ALL” only applies to the majority.

see: whites, men, heteros, etc

BLOOP. BLOOP.

wait, so is she saying young white people pretend they’re black or whatever then grow up and turn white again? 

What she means is white people have the ability to exploit the “desirable”  traits of black culture. They can twerk, wear gold chains, appropriate black culture basically. BUT at the end of the they can go back to having all the advantages of being white. 

Example: Marky Mark- AKA Mark Wahlberg

P!nk

and they can be ‘redeemed’ as that was just their wild/rebellious phase. now they’ve ‘grown up’ and ‘matured’

why isn't it a problem when m.i.a raps? why is it ok to have chicano rap/asian rap/ etc? But as soon as white people try it you all lose your shit?

kyssthis16:

That’s so cute and simplistic. Did you work on this question all week or…? No one cares when white people try to rap. We care when they don’t represent their authentic selves or are plain untalented. We don’t care that Eminem is white. He’s not out her performing sonic blackface, despite being from the Detroit Metro Area. Yelawolf sounds like a southern rapper because… he’s a southern rapper. Homeboy is from Alabama. His voice is his. Hell, we didn’t even care about Bubba Sparxxx. Homeboy is from Georgia. Plus, Ms. New Booty is still a bop, so.. *shrugs*

Iggy literally sounds like something out of Malibu’s Most Wanted. Protip: that movie was not a documentary. This sheila is claiming she’s in the “murda bidness”. Homegirl grew up in Mulllumbimby, New South Wales, on a fucking farm. What the fuck was she murdering? Chickens? The hopes and dreams of her parents? What? You tell me. But she is flagrantly being dishonest and unauthentic. She sounds like all the mediocre parts of some of the premiere lady rappers throughout the years. She ain’t as cool in her delivery as Da Brat. She ain’t as raw and bold as Foxy or Trina. She ain’t as cute or skilled as Charli Baltimore. Iggy is what happens when generally mediocre white girls think they deserve to win and people who don’t know better let them. 

"The depth of isolation in the ghetto is also evident in black speech patterns, which have evolved steadily away from Standard American English. Because of their intense social isolation, many ghetto residents have come to speak a language that is increasingly remote from that spoken by American whites. Black street speech, or more formally, Black English Vernacular, has its roots in the West Indian creole and Scots-Irish dialects of the eighteenth century. As linguists have shown, it is by no means a “degenerate,” or “illogical” version of Standard American English; rather, it constitutes a complex, rich, and expressive language in its own right, with a consistent grammar, pronunciation, and lexicon all its own."

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.

But the Irish were treated badly and they’ve moved on! Race is diffferent in _______ (white country). The Irish aren’t white! Only protestants are you piece of shit! Only rich white men are white! Only other white people are white because I have no understanding of racism or white privilege!

"

As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.

According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.

Ten myths about affirmative action (via linzyxxxxx)

This is EXTREMELY blatant on college campuses. The fact that these things need to be clarified is sad.

(via newwavefeminism)

Legacy is the real affirmative action…and yet we don’t see certain types of entitled people suing to dismantle that.

(via invisiblelad)

seriously though, where’s the poor white kid outrage over legacy admissions? or did you only learn to take your frustration out on people of color?
