Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

Being a cis man who supports feminism does not entitle you to a place in women’s spaces

We claim those spaces for a reason, and it isn’t to give voices to different men.

Full recap once I get back to my laptop, but seriously, the police are ridiculous as fuck with this VonDerrit Myers story. Just admit it: your racist vigilante brother in arms gunned down this kid in the street.

#staywoke #16times

White people will believe a man was wearing a cloaked hoody, jumped out an invisible bush and fired 3 shots at a cop from a sandwich before they believe racism still exists

Ughhhhhh this is fucking VILE

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

Things to marinate on this “holiday” weekend

I always get confused at first when people say this needs to be taught in schools everywhere, because this basically IS the history class I grew up with in Northern Manitoba. Like, pre-colonial Native history, the history of both settlers who were hostile to natives and the ones who cooperated fairly well with them and how that created the entirely new and unique Metis culture, and the history of Louis Riel and his rebellion was stuff we were learning as far back as grade five. Native studies focused primarily on precolonial native history and mythology and deconstructing native representation in the media is a mandatory class to get a high school diploma from our school division up there.

Makes me remember not to take that kind of upbringing for granted.

Reminders for National Coming Out Day:

k-pagination:

-If it will endanger you directly, don’t feel obligated.
-If it will endanger you emotionally and mentally, don’t feel obligated.
-If it will create a toxic environment, don’t feel obligated.
-If you are just not ready, feel no shame. You’re not obligated.

Being “in the closet” is not shameful. If you want to argue with me on this, take it elsewhere; that toxicity will not be permitted here.
