Let middle school flashbacks begin…


"For anyone who wants a simple proof that Palestine existed before 1948, here’s a coin from 1927 worth 10 Mils (this currency is no longer used). Also note that the word “Palestine” is written in both Arabic and Hebrew indicating not only a Jewish presence, but a prominent one. Jews and Arabs DID live side by side in peace. The Zionist idea that they cannot coexist is an absolute fallacy." -Sarah Aly ———> Nora Tehaili <——— Instagram: http://instagram.com/noratehaili Twitter: https://twitter.com/noratehaili

Civil Rights Movement vs Ferguson Protests

1964 … 2014

Shout out to Al Jazeera straight up showing a video of their reporters getting tear gassed during a live interview of the Ferguson police chief denying that they are tear gassing journalists.

‪#IfTheyGunnedMeDown‬ which picture would they use? Frankly, it doesn’t matter. As a person who reaps the benefits of white privilege I am allowed to learn to shoot a gun and be photographed with fire arms and suffer no repercussions against my character. And my story would be very different from Michael Brown’s. It would vastly differ the stories (if told) of the Black people killed every 28 hours at the hands of police force or vigilantes. My story could easily show both pictures and label me as a dog lover and personal safety enthusiast. Whatever my actions,it is likely I could be excused. 
Ultimately, I am nowhere near as likely to find myself at the wrong end of an officer’s gun as the marginalized people of color in this country. A big part of bringing an end to the unjust systems of racism that run this nation has GOT to be white people recognizing these privileges and safety nets. We have to realize that we live in a world that has offered no safety nets for the people of color we live with. We can fuck up and bounce back. We can walk safely down the street in a hoodie. We can simply pass by a cop without fear of getting shot. While the rich, white people who run the NRA are constantly lobbying for the gun rights of every man, woman, and child, UNARMED Black KIDS are being gunned down in the STREETS by the very people we expect to keep them safe. As a white person, I pledge to stand up for the rights and safety of people of color in this country. I pledge to never shy away from the hard conversations—the ones where white people really have to digest exactly how privileged we are, and the expense that privilege comes at. I pledge to call out racism when I see it. I pledge to never be complicit with the racial bigotry happening around me. I pledge to always work to detox my own self from the racist culture I have been saturated in since birth. And, in the words of Mia McKenzie, I pledge to PUSH BACK against my privilege. 
The rights/safety of people of color is not an issue that is theirs alone. It is the white community’s burden to take it upon ourselves and combat this shit when it happens.

Stop ignoring POC autistics.

Stop ignoring female and genderqueer autistics.

Stop ignoring autistics with other disabilities.

Stop ignoring autistic adults.

Basically stop ignoring people who don’t “fit” your idea of what an autistic/aspie person “should” be.

Agreed

#IfTheyGunnedMeDown Confronts How Minority Deaths Are Portrayed In Media

Following the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen on Saturday, and the ensuing media portrayal of his death, Twitter expressed outrage in the form of a hashtag: #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

I have to give credit to whomever came up with this idea. Look at the way the mainstream media depicts black teenagers, with or without hoodies and the casual justifications that go along with. It is telling and absolutely terrifying that what you’re wearing in a given photo is enough for American society at large to write off your murder something either inevitable or justifiable. It’s a putrid thing to dehumanize a group of people based on this, and yet, there are so many examples it’s damning all the same.

I think the biggest turn on is knowing you turned someone else on.

People when talking about online activism that challenges their prejudiced notions: Why don't you get out in the real world and do something?? Whining on tumblr and the internet doesn't change anything!
Same exact people discussing the internet in every single other instance: The internet is such a powerful tool it really brings us together in so many ways and connects us, it's the most essential tool for spreading information and changing things the most immense way because everyone is on the internet, social media has really changed the world.
