Happy Black History YEAR!
loving how my old history teacher talked about them like a terrorist group
boost me up
Wow okay so for those skimming, there’s a memo up there from THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI that sets a mission to LIE about the good things the Black Panthers were doing, spread rumors of them being terrorists, and terrorize the communities supporting them.
If you think the Black Panthers were terrorists and you’ve never heard of the community-building, it’s because there was a literal government conspiracy to make you and people 45 years ago think that way.
i’m reblogging again (bolding mine), because people need to fucking know this. especially white americans.
This is true.
And we in the military are told the Black Panther Party is on the same level as the KKK and we’re not allowed to join it or go to any rallies or events hosted by the BPP.
I almost laughed when I saw it. I’m sure a few of the old-head Black chiefs laughed too.
This is the legacy of colonialism and white supremacy at work.
When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to fuck her if there were no laws in the way.”
You can’t deny that is fucking scary.
Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.
Just because someone’s comfortable talking to you about their autism doesn’t mean they’re comfortable talking to everyone about it.
Don’t out autistic people without their consent.
i want to wear your hoodies and stay up talking about the universe with you until 3 am and i want to hold your hand and kiss your face and hug you when im sad and have marathons of our favourite shows
