“Tunnels were used in the Warsaw Ghetto to smuggle food and weapons. They were also used by the Vietnamese when the US bombed them to pieces. Why are people so surprised that when you cage people in or bomb them, that they seek refuge underground?”—Diana Buttu (via america-wakiewakie)
“Palestinians are being dispossessed and exterminated exactly as were the Indigenous peoples of North America. On occasion Israeli officials have said that they are only following America’s lead in clearing the land of undesirables. This is my take on what is one of the West’s great moral failings: As Zionists have endeavored to teach the world for decades, Israel is not subject to criticism. Only Jew-haters, anti-semites, and people who want to gas Jews and boil them in oil criticize Israel. Israel is above criticism, because Israelis are God’s Chosen People and despite being God’s Chosen People suffered the Holocaust. This means that the Israeli government, like the one in Washington, can do whatever it wants and remain above criticism.”—Israel Is Stealing and Murdering Its Way Through Palestine (via azspot)
“Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.”—
This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa
"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).
"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).
Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.
why can't it be "lets talk about how beautiful everyone is"??? Why is it just one skin tone? Everyone is beautiful no matter their complexion because social boundaries shouldn't separate how we think of ourselves. We're all human beings, lets all be beautiful together. Lets not leave of appreciation of some "races" as we try to appreciate the beauty of a certain section of people. (this is not hate please don't yell at me, just my opinion)
girl if u don’t get outta my inbox with this ‘we are the world! let’s all hold hands and pretend certain skin tones aren’t considered more desirable than others!’ NOW BACK TO WHAT I WAS SAYING
