Memorize this fucking image and then think about how you’re treating us in land that was originally ours
pinches gringos calling us illegals BYE
But what about the native nations that were here before our gente Mexicana claimed the land as Mexico? No one ever seems to want to talk about that anymore. You’re leaving out so many groups who took care of these lands before it was Mexico: Ohlone, Pomo, Miwok, Paiute, Diné, N’de, Tohono O’odham, Zuni, and so many others. Soy orgulloso de ser Mexicano, pero tambien hay que recordar que antes que estas tierras fueran Mexicanas there were already native peoples here. And let’s be honest, Mexico’s history of treatment of indigenous people isn’t pretty, even after its “independence”. We have to stop talking as if this land always belonged to Mexico people. These lands were indigenous before someone decided to plant the Mexican flag here(and later the U.S.) n claim ownership of these tierras.
I saw this the other day on twitter. Smh.
Hmm. This is alarming. It makes me rethink my values and my affinities.
Okay, so niggas wanna act like there weren’t no strippers back in the day? Y’all wanna act like black strippers aren’t revolutionary in their own right? Y’all wanna act like black woman can’t be both images at the same time? Huh? Y’all wanna act like black women have “lost their way” and it’s a cause for all this shaming? Y’all wanna act like they are less than as black women because they don’t got an afro and an ankh?
word i was thinkin the same thing. even in the most revolutionary of times there are people on the other side who remain enslaved by the system.
Gtfoohwtbs fantasies about pro-black ass-shaking well-read twerking-for-the-hood-Jesus-and-the-cause type strippers being a reality. Self-respecting sisters and hoes don’t exist in the same body.
So…Josephine Baker is a fantasy? Feel free to pick up an actual history book instead of spouting misogynistic ill informed bullshit.
Please don’t associate hoes who fight for dollars with woman who fought for their rights.
Please stop being a worthless specimen of douchcanoe.
strippers, adult entertainers, and sex workers have been fighting for our rights long before your ignorant ass crawled to your laptop to show the world how little you know
Josephine Baker, civil rights movement, French resistance volunteer during WWII
Marsha P. Johnson, one of the leaders of the Stonewall riots, co founded S.T.A.R., which in part provided housing for homeless trans and queer youth.
Eartha Kitt, civil rights movement, anti apartheid, blacklisted for decades due to anti war statements made to the first lady
And btw, these women fought for their rights with signs, with their voices, with their bodies. They fought for their right to work, to be safe, and to be respected, whether it’s while they’re half naked or at a protest or both. You don’t get to decide what rights are important, and how we fight for them.
“Being an Asian American adoptee in the US means nothing and everything. It means being an unbalanced equation in America’s weird racial math. It means being a completed puzzle with missing pieces. People project their views of race onto you, and you bounce them back distorted, like a fun house mirror.”
Happy Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage month, everyone! Check out my piece on being a Korean American adoptee at Beyond Hallyu.
Indigenous Canadian Women Are Suffering a Murder Epidemic
Last week’s discovery of the body of Loretta Saunders, an Inuit student who disappeared while working on a thesis about missing and murdered Native Canadian women, sparked calls across the country for action. NGOs say violence against Aboriginal women and girls is reaching epidemic levels — and around half of the murder cases remain unsolved.
On February 13, NWAC delivered a petition to the House of Commons, signed by over 23,000 Canadians in support of the call for a national inquiry.
Next time you want to say “Canada’s such a nice place! Nothing bad happens in Canada!” please give a thought to this.
When my cousin went missing the RCMP literally said to my aunt, “Who cares? It’s just another Indian.”
The people paid to help and protect Canadian citizens did not give a single shit about the suffering and agony of my aunt because her kid was “just another Indian.” She was just another whore hanging out in the Downtown East Side. Never mind she was a daughter, mother, sister and cousin.
Later we found out she was a victim of Robert Pickton and she was never coming home. But she wasn’t just a victim of Willie- she was a victim of the institutionalised racism and sexism in this country. Something millions of people still fight against daily.
This morning my family had a scare when a young cousin of mine had been missing since yesterday after school. All I could think about is what happened last time one of my family’s members went missing and how apathetic the people who were supposed to help us were. Luckily she’s been located and is unharmed and I didn’t have to worry about the RCMP impassivity again.
