Friendly reminder that anyone born between 1985-1998 didn’t get their hogwarts letter because Voldemort’s ministry wiped out the record of muggleborns
In regards to my unsavory work experience today, I have a lot of this in my inbox:White People: PEOPLE HAVENT USED BLACKFACE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS!!!1!1!1 You are exaggerating!Stop making something out of nothing!
And so on…
Oh, really? I think you need both a history lesson, and some quick look at some of your relatives FB accounts.
We are not a costume. Cultures are not a costume.
Making a mockery of cultures is racist.
Blackface is racist no matter how you slice it.
And if you think otherwise, then it is simple, you are also racist.
no, painting your face black is not racist, but using it with racist intent IS racist
yall should be fucking grateful that we have painted ourselves brown to look like you
It is truly astonishing how dense people can be.
And we should be grateful? For what? For your racist actions? For your people throwing your Africa themed parties dressed as if there are no white people in Africa? For you dressing as dead black children for whatever sick reason?
You CANNOT wear a race as a costume. It’s racist. You’re racist lol.
Do you guys see this ignorance? Lmao!Why in the ever living hell would we want you to dress up like us? You’re plain boring and frankly are some of the most overly presumptuous people to walk the planet. You’re the only race that tries to steal everyone else’s culture while consecutively claiming that everyone wants to be you. Go sit your ignorant ass down you insolent fucking swine.666slay
In some fucked up logic that they have, they think they’re complimenting us. But NO. It is anything but a compliment.
People with this logic appropriate anyone that they think is “exotic” (which basically means non-white) and think that it’s okay. And it’s not.
They stay saying that racism is in the past, but they continue to do the same things that their ancestors did to oppress us then, now. And it’s really sad. I pity them, their immorality, and the families that raised them to be ignorant cretins.
& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism
What the FUCK
White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!
But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.
The thing is:
White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.
They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.
But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.
Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
abolish the concept of ‘passing’ & start accepting that theres no specific way any gender has to look to be valid

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
