Feel free to ax me a question or two.
lenadreamsingold: Maybe one day my Blackness won’t be questioned.
White people: Race is a social construct, so you really shouldn't get offended so much, since you aren't actually black.
Dion: Totally. And laws are just social constructs, so when I punch the next white person who says this to me in the mouth, its not actually assault.
Black women are the most BEAUTIFUL thing God has...
Tomorrow is April Fool's Day.
livelovereblog: BELIEVE. NOTHING. TRUST. NO ONE.
This Life Builds Me This Life Kills Me This Life Builds Me This Life Kills Me
Shit Racist White People Say to Black and...
White People: Yeah, we did the Natives real dirty. We won the land fair and square! You guys just weren't developed enough!
Indigenous People: -_-
White People: What'd I say? I'm totally not being racist, but you guys didn't have civilizations.
Indigenous People: Iroquois Confederacy? Cahokia? The Mashika? Aztecs? Mayans? The herbal medicines of our ancestors are the backbones of modern pharmaceutical industries. Sustainable farming? Us. Masters of musical styles you haven't even heard of? Us. The U.S. government system? Y'know, where you exert power from a central authority into smaller units? Yeah, that's us too. Where do you think the word "caucus" comes from? Us. Astronomy? Us. Anesthetics? Us. Most of your staple foods you take for granted? Us. Almanacs? Us. Flying machinery? Us. Having a BBQ party? Us. Basketball? Us. Embalming? Us. Advanced architecture? Us. Your ancestors would have died it if weren't for us. Yet you claim everything our ancestors did was built by aliens.
White People: But, like, genocide isn't new to human history.
Indigenous People: It's the only time in history when genocide destroyed and displaced hundreds of cultures in an entire *creed* of people spanning two continents and a collection of islands. Our blood and labor is the backbone of the modern world.
White People: ... Oh.
Indigenous People: Yeah. OH.
White People: Get over it, niggers! Africa was just ass-backwards! We took you guys from the jungle tribes and educated you!
Black People: -_-
White People: What'd I say? I'm totally not being racist, but you guys didn't have civilizations!
Black People: The West African empires of Ghana, Mali, Songhai? How about Kemet? Kush? Kanem-Bornu? You raided Africa for its natural resources, stripping it of produce and people to feed your fat egos, and you still are. Backbone of modern music? Jazz, rock n' roll, the Blues Scale? Us. Irrigation? Us. Astronomy? Us. First iron-smelters? Us. Earliest expressions of realism in art? Us. Picasso was inspired by West African artworks. Us. Embalming? Us. Alchemy? Us. Flying machinery? Us. First successful Caesarian Section? Us. First successful cataracts? Us. The Greeks transplanted all the knowledge the Kemites ("Egyptians") and Kushites gave them; Religion, architecture and science, and that is the source of the Western World. Yet you claim everything our ancestors did was done by aliens.
White People: But, like, slavery isn't new to human history.
Black People: It's the only time in history that worldwide slavery was inflicted across an entire *creed* of people spanning a continent large enough to swallow some of the world's largest countries, displacing and destroying these people for centuries. Our blood and labor is the backbone of the modern world.
White People: ...Oh.
Black People: Yeah. OH.
