If someone can be kicked out of school for copying a paper, a person should be kicked out of school for raping another human being.
White women (and a lot of non-Black WOC) would be better off recognizing that the only reason they get so offended when hearing “Black is beautiful” is because their entire self-image is built around being the epitome of beauty (and thus womanhood).
You are literally built up as the epitome of beauty/womanhood while Black women are positioned as the antithesis of it. To hear the group you believe (and most often this belief is subconscious) to be the antithesis of beauty, actually claim ourselves as beautiful (and thus worthy of love, respect, humanity) is shattering to your very fragile egos.
That’s why y’all stay in folks inboxes (on anon no less) talking about “we’re all beautiful.” But I don’t see you protesting Calvin Klein or anyone else in the fashion/modeling/makeup industry for more inclusivity of Black and Brown women. But we all beautiful, right?
"We are very saddened to learn of the passing of Mabel Williams, the legendary African-American activist, who, with her husband Robert F. Williams, fought for and carried out the right of armed self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan, militantly represented the liberation struggle of her people during exile in Cuba, China, and Africa, and continued her active lifelong engagement in social justice struggles upon their return to the US.
Mabel Williams was born June 1, 1931 and transitioned Saturday, April 19th, 2014 at her family’s home in Detroit. There will be a Saturday homegoing in Detroit on April 26th, 2014 and she will be returned to Monroe, North Carolina shortly thereafter according to her son John Williams.
The Freedom Archives is honored to be able to offer these audio and video selections as a special tribute to Mabel Williams—the legendary African-American freedom fighter who we’ve had the good fortune to work closely with on several documentaries and events. Mabel Williams has made lifelong contributions in her own right and this needs to be recognized and celebrated. Yes, she was the lifelong comrade and companion of her justly famous husband Robert F. Williams—and she was with him every step of their courageous way—in Monroe North Carolina where, as NAACP leaders, they and other activists organized for racial equality and dramatized the right of self-defense against the vicious attacks of the Ku Klux Klan—with Mabel defending her home, Robert, and her two sons with shotgun and determination.
While she often downplayed her role, Mabel, among many other activities, illustrated and wrote articles for their influential newsletter The Crusader, narrated and selected music for their radio program from Cuba, “Radio Free Dixie,” collaborated on the famous book, Negroes with Guns, was a strong voice for her people in Canada, Cuba, Mexico, Moscow, China, Japan, Vietnam, Europe, and Africa, and met with revolutionary leaders, such as Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, and Mao Zedong,
There could be no more fitting tribute than to highlight this woman whose militant anti-racist internationalism is powerfully expressed in her lifetime of dedicated energy around the world, then returning again to the Empire from which they had been exiled, and where she continued her social activism. We hope these selections from programs of the Freedom Archives and from an interview by Walter Turner on his radio program “Africa Today” provide insight into the lasting liberation legacy of Mabel Williams.”
lesbian: there is this problem with straight feminists that they speak over lesbians and refuse to critically examine how their feminism is heteronormative
straight feminist: hmmm interesting… i personally haven’t noticed that though! actually i don’t think it’s an important problem we should fix and definitely not the fault of straight women in particular… thanks for sharing your perspective :)
Your whole “hearts not parts” bullshit is so fucking homophobic, Just fucking admit that most of you guys are creepy straight people who fetishize homosexuality. You can keep the drag parties and sparkly glittery avantgarde ladygaga androgyny just get your whiny asses out of our spaces with your god damn annoying straight PiV-worshipping horseshit.
people who prey on underage
girlspeople (online or offline) are absolute slimy little shitbags and deserve to be thrown off a cliff into a pit of lava.
Fixed it for you.
oh fuck off dude, come back when we have an entire culture built around male infantilisation and sexualisation of young boys but until then i’m not fucking around with your depoliticised gender neutral bullshitMen are such shit. They’re even more pathetic when they attempt to erase or minimize the existence of the Heteropatriarchy and their own participation in it, as well as the benefits they reap from it.
one hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.

"I am an Inuit seal meat eater, and my fur is ethical," wrote Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, bundled in a sealskin coat, pants and boots. She also wrote a letter to DeGeneres and posted it online.
Samsung vowed to donate $1 for every retweet of DeGeneres’ celebrity-packed Oscars selfie to a charity of her choice. She raised $1.5 million for the Humane Society of the United States, which campaigns annually against Canada’s seal hunt.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s website calls the seal hunt “one of the most atrocious and inhumane acts against animals allowed by any government.”
The Inuit have long defended the hunt as a sustainable practice, deeply rooted in Inuit culture, which helps feed people in a region plagued by hunger.
"The meat feeds families, which is important to an area where many households have identified that they face issues of food insecurity," said Sandi Vincent, who posted her own sealfie Thursday.
The pelts also come in handy in the cold northern climate and provide a needed source of income, she said. She also countered the idea of the hunt as “inhumane.”
"In Inuit culture, it is believed seals and other animals have souls and offer themselves to you. Humanely and with gratitude we accepted this gift," she said, reminiscing about catching her first seal at age 15.
White vegans— particularly celebrity “crusaders”— need to just shut the fuck up forever and leave Indigenous people alone. This is how white liberals and hippies attempt to justify calling Indigenous people “savages”. Shitheads.
