afro-dominicano:

remember that there are people planted in both parties to make sure there’s always some kind of civil unrest between the opposing two or three or what have you. that includes deploying sensationalist articles meant to drive up more hate between two nations and break down any possibility of solidarity. because divide and conquer is still in place. just make sure you fact check before you talk about something so you don’t end up fueling the very engine you wish to destroy.

“what if the aborted baby could have cured cancer???”

oh my god what if the last egg I bled onto a kotex product could have cured cancer??

oh my god how am I not birthing every possible egg I produce, lest one of those resulting babies be the person who cures cancer/AIDS/creates world peace????

what if that baby could have been a musical artist described by pitchfork as “liberace with a metalcore twist”????

how dare i not be pregnant/birthing all the time always?????

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

NYC in the 1980s.

Love.

Memories.


After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame  of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.

“Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”

theclothdiary said: Lmao the producer of Exodus claiming that there is still a 'debate' on the ethnicity of ancient Egyptians is like defending the white washing in The Last Airbender by saying there's still a debate on the ethnicities of Sokka and Katara. The proof of their 'ethnicities' literally couldn't be more obvious, but cool let's just pretend like it's not.

White people will do anything to avoid having to admit that black built amazing structures like those in Egypt.

They be like:

"WOW, these are amazing….welp had to have been white people because even though Egypt is in Africa and there are literally zero traces of white people anywhere near here, and we haven’t found a single white looking person in the tombs or in the writing on the wall, black people could not have accomplished this much amazing. So white people must have came over, built them than disappeared into thin air. Logic." 

No one said white people built Egypt, just Egyptians.

White people say whites built Egypt at least 8 times a day. Miss me with that bullshit.

Linkage? Because there’s only one erroneous claim I see made about Egyptians that doesn’t come from the early 20th century, and that isn’t it.

What are you talking about. I don’t hoards links to the hundreds of shitty white people i see on this site claiming that Egyptians are white. Go find them yourself, i’m not your google. I don’t need to “prove” my experiences to you.  

Saying they were not “black” (as in subsaharan African in appearance) by modern standards is not the same thing as saying they were white.

and that’s not what people said. black doesn’t have one appearance. Egyptians are fucking black, get over it. stop fighting so hard to claim shit that aint yours. and get the fuck off my post with your white supremacist bullshit. 

You can go fuck yourself if you’re going to try to sensationalize what I say with tumblr buzzwords. The consensus among anthropologists is that ancient Egyptians were ethnically related to Berbers and Nubians. Another consensus among anthropologists is that modern-day distinctions of race are arbitrary and have no validity in classifying people from antiquity, but if we’re going to be discussing this, no, they would not be the dark-skinned people tumblr wants them to be. North Africa is absolutely *African*, and ethnically diverse, but largely phenotypically distinct from Southern Africa. They are *NOT* white either, but there are more distinctions in the world than black/white (though none with any basis in science).

you do know there is such thing as light skin black people right? they are still BLACK, black does not mean dark skin. African people are fucking black, you idiot. whether light skin or dark skin, they are BLACK. black people are literally the FIRST people on earth, life started in africa and it didn’t start with white people. No where on tumblr did anyone say they were dark skin blacks, we said BLACK. Do you even know what black means? black is a very broad umbrella term for anyone of african decent. Honestly there is fucking proof all over Egypt

do those look like white people to you? 

image

oh look more brown people

image

shocker! more fucking brown peopleimage

*mind blown*

image

You can try and sit here and talk anthropology all you want, but the Egyptians made it pretty fucking clear what their people looked like.

And you’re on MY post sweetie, you don’t get to tell me to go fuck myself when YOU inserted yourself into MY post. 

No one? Well, I’m going to hold myself to the same standard as you by not taking the time to dig up a link, but the original claim that dragged me into this whole bullshit charade was that they were specifically dark-skinned black people and that art had been intentionally altered to display lighter skin tones/had typically “black” noses removed to hide their blackness, when most of N Africa is phenotypically different from the rest of Africa. Egyptians are phenotypically closer to Berber people than to subsaharan peoples.

And again, I never said they were white. Reading comprehension.

Then why the are you still talking?

You’re dismissed

Who invited you anyway?

I’m convinced you just want to argue then when shit gets hot, retract all statements, log out and go hide in a corner

I haven’t retracted a single statement. Again, thanks for playing.

Where is this statement that states they were dark skin? You talk about reading comprehension yet i don’t see that statement anywhere. You are equating BLACK with DARK, which is false. 

LMFAO didn’t i tell y’all he was going to try and make an excuse for why the Egyptians portrayal of themselves is inaccurate because white people said so? 

omg look at this fucking white boy: ”24. M. MISANTHROPIST, POSITIVIST, ATHEIST.”  

AND he said “thanks for playing”.

you can’t make this shit up. bc if you did it would inevitably be based on at least 1000 fuckboys you’ve met.

i’d be laughing if this weren’t the sort of motherfucker out there teaching teaching in our schools.

They won’t let us have SHIT.
