The cultures of people of color are either packaged for consumption or called upon to fill cultural and spiritual voids of Eurocentrism.

That shit blew my mind and made understanding cultural appropriation way clearer for me.

Irish have been slaves for over 700 years and Slavs/Celts have been slaves periodically for almost 2,000 years, and dreadlocks have been in European History for over 10,000 years doesn't it sound kind of whiny and bitchy complaining about how horrible white people are, when most of the white people including myself immigrated from Europe well past the age of slavery in the US to protect themselves from being enslaved themselves? Get over yourself, fucking racist.

murderwhitepeople:

First I need you to ask yourself who oppressed the Irish and their tomato-faced brethren and then ask why you’re telling me about it. Could it be that you don’t actually give a shit and just want to use it to silence a PoC who critiques white supremacy? I think that may well be the may case.

I must say that this is my first personal meeting with the lie about Celts wearing dreads but fret not, we’ll have that righted in a minute.

First I implore you to read this.

But if clicking off your porn for a short while is too hard then I’ll just give you a short quote that even your bigoted mind should be able to comprehend. 

"Gauls, the Celts, the Saxons, the (Visi-, Ostro-) Goths, the Vandals, the Angles, and just about everyone North of what is now Italy. All those tribes had traditions of plaiting hair. They also, did nothave the same traditions of cutting hair that the Romans did.”

Furthermore, to dismiss some of the most brutal crimes committed against a people (slavery and imperialism) as ‘whining’ just shows what an insensitive little piece of shit you are. How can you think that is whining? How is discussing the horrors of conquering and brutalising innocent people ‘whining’? Or stealing people from their homes and LITERALLY WORKING THEM TO DEATH JESUS FUCKING CHRIST DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT SLAVERY WAS?

It doesn’t matter when you immigrated, it just means that whities before you already planted the seeds so you just get to sit under the tree now. You still benefit from white privilege, you over-emotional brat. Accept it.

Wow, you Ladies and gents must really love white people. I mean, dedicating a whole page to our race? That's such an honor. Thank you. XOXO

whitepeoplesaidwhat:

did you give yourself a pat on the back for this one?

You gave yourself a high five for sending this didn’t you. OMG so clever

This is your blog

that shit says “A safe place for Europeans/ American-Europeans/ Canadian-Europeans/ Australlian-Europeans/ ECT…to find joy and beauty in their race.”

White people need a safe space now?

Pale faces need a safe space? Was the entire globe not safe enough for you so you decided to make a blog with the same white people we all open magazines and see

with the same mayo wonder bread sandwiches we see on tv, in movies, on billboards, defining beauty everywhere we go, 

But that wasn’t assuring enough for you so you made a blog because white people already don’t have enough

Tell me why your blog look like i google searched crackers?

Why your blog look like i google searched white bread?

You better shut your dumb ass the fuck up because I’m the last one for you to try to get smart on, okay?

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Cleopatra was black, she was as black as Cicely Tyson. -Paul Mooney

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.

sinidentidades:

When people refer to English as “universal,” they always seem to wonder how it came to be so “universal.”

They discuss how it’s “borrowed” from all these languages but don’t make the connection of how this language was violently implemented during occupations and colonization campaigns which led to the few, often bastardized, “borrowings” of words from the region’s native language(s).
