The people should not be afraid of their government. The
government should be afraid of their people.
Holy fucking shit is this relevant.
The government IS afraid of the people.
Which is why they indoctrinate our children into thinking in a certain manner. I mean, we wouldn’t want an uprising would we?
Example: BLACK HISTORY.
What we learn in school is the watered down version of what white people did to black people. They force feed certain black political figures down our throats while demonizing others.
Remember what happened the last time black people had access to the atrocities that were accruing in that day in age as well as the past?
That’s right: The Civil Rights Movement.

Changing it to black and white makes it look like it happened decades ago, but it’s important to point out that this photo was taken just last year. It’s not the past. It’s all around us at this very moment.
That is nearly 220 raids a day, some of which are ‘no-knock’ raids.
The increase in raids continues to produce horrific outcomes for innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire.
In Detroit, a SWAT team accompanied by a reality TV show crew, killed seven-year old Aiyana Jones as she slept on a couch.
In late May, another SWAT team nearly killed a 19 month old toddler after tossing a grenade into it’s playpen during a no-knock raid. It exploded on his pillow, tearing his face and chase open. Miraculously, the child survived.
Thousand’s of similar cases have occurred across America.
More Loc’d Brothers at Odunde in B & W
#ThrowBackThursday! Photos we took at Odunde last year. Tia and I are so excited that it will be coming back up in a few weeks!!!
I got a thing for brothers with locs.
Been looking all over for this.Honestly, can we just agree on that? Can we just agree that the price you pay for white privilege is not being allowed to say one word in the English language? It’s not that fucking hard to comprehend
I’m going to have to re-blog this like once a day or something.
Akata is just a word. Some think it's derogatory. Ok. But that's about the only shit black Americans get from Africans. Africans on the other hand get way more shit from Black Americans. Many if you still think we all live in huts and run with lions. Many still say things like 'Africans are dirty, smelly, evil. Some idiots will even blame us for slavery. Just like racist whites treat us without dignity, many of u do the same to us. So, stop whining about being called an Akata. It's just a word.
Peace and Power Answer:
So is being called dirty, smelly and evil you geek bitch. Like why do y’all come to my ask with this shit? I run a Maxwell fan blog! If it ain’t about him leave me alone!
Y’all need to let this go. Akata is a bad word. Like jeez. redbellied-piranha
They never gonna let you live lol
a) The only person doing any name calling is her.
b) she’s still trying to defend the use of that word
c) if she was an intelligent person, she’d know that name calling doesn’t resolve anything because, 2 wrongs don’t make a right.
They won’t leave me alone
I can’t for the world of me understand why they want to engage in/justify xenophobia. Xenophobic speech is up there with racist speech. They are now following this up with harassment. Their actions are in direct contravention of tumblr rules. You need to send the ringleader a polite message straight to her in-box and ask her to cease and desist otherwise, you’ll report her to tumblr administration and her blog will be shut down. It’s not going to be had for tumblr admin to weed their blogs out and block them, (seeing that they’ve been in direct contact with you on the threads hence you know exactly who they are).
Don’t argue with them, don’t give them oxygen, report them!
I don’t quite know if it’s village wife or not. I can always figure out who is sending me anon hate I just haven’t done so yet.
Whatever happens don’t let them stress you. And if you decide to report them let us know and we’ll write to admin to back you up. There’s no room for xenophobia or unnecessary provocation. If she has any grievances she needs to know how to articulate them. End of.
I most def will let y’all know. I just need to prove who it is before I report them.
yes there were some Native American slaves in the early days of US chattell slavery but the grand majority of slaves in the untied states were Black
say it with me now
Black people have only been free for 150 years
