I used to be really embarrassed when my parents would mess up their English but as I got older I realized my parents know Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, AND English.

They’re way smarter than I am. So I started to chill.

Somebody start talking about how immigrants are dumb because they can’t speak English properly. I’d fucking like to see you try and even remember four different languages, you elitist and racist fuckbaby.

Anonymous asked: "The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century." this is, in no way shape or form, even mildly close to being even slightly true. please prove me wrong with a source other than a dry erase board around someone's neck. even though i realize that's enough proof to sway the opinion of the ever-legitimate SJW.

Aw, boo hoo— you called me a derogatory name that’s meaningless outside of Tumblr/Reddit/Urban Dictionary. How you wound!

Now this is one of two responses I’m providing to you anon-ratfucks tonight because: 1) I’m not your teacher, 2) Google is your friend, and 3) you fuckboys (and girls) never learn one way or another, so why waste the time. BUT, for my folks out there who actually care, here’s some stats that took less than an hour to gather on the internet (re: #2).

Recorded Lynchings in the US (likely under-reported):

Total of lynchings of Blacks over listed period: 1,568

Rate of murders annually: 58 per year

Total of law-enforcement killings of Blacks over last decade: Unknown because stats are intentionally manipulated, under-reported, or simply untracked

Rate of murders Annually: Also unknown; estimated at least 96 from independent analysis of FBI stats on ‘justifiable homicide’; upwards of 300 or more from individual auditors

So actually, you’re right— from what little data the corrupt police state actually reports, the police kill MORE Black folk today than lynchings in the early 20th century. Feel free to respond, but if you do, try to be less of a ratfuck punk, and actually show you’re real profile instead of anon. Also: you can take 20 seats now.

1901 wasn’t a good year for white people.

But every year was a shitty year for black people.

But isn’t that pretty much the summary of “Black in America” on any topic. I gotta laugh cause otherwise… 

I’m gonna go ahead and head-off the inevitable response here to the comparison of lynchings and police brutality. People will say that some or all of the police killings were justified because the victim committed a crime/was suspected of a crime, whereas the lynchings were random, but that’s not the case at all. Most lynchings came about because a rumor spread that so-and-so had done something wrong and the community took “justice” into it’s own hands and killed the person. Often these rumors were totally false, or the alleged crime was something like: “looking at a white woman wrong”. But the fact remains, both police brutality today and lynchings in the 20th century operated under a veneer of legitimacy, because the victims were claimed to be criminals, who “had it coming.” Whether or not they actually did it, and the fact that the victims were never proven guilty in a court of law—wasn’t important.

Thus, the phenomenon is the same, lynchings basically continue to this day, but they’re mostly committed by the police now rather than civilians (though there still are civilian-perpetrated lynchings too, see Trayvon Martin.)

I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy.

I think we share a goal, but I prefer to think of it in terms of the rising up and coming together of all people so we can care for eachother and our planet, rather than our own personal growth.

I said I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy. I did not stutter.

So this guy on Etsy, username “Elevated Wierdo” aka Toby James has this picture up advertising his t-shirt for profit. This person consciously knows that their image depicts the image of the iraqi prisoner who was being tortured by american troops. I had asked him to remove this picture.
the conversation went as follows:
Me:Hey why does your picture look like the one that was leaked from the Iraq prison camps where many Iraqis were being tortured by American troops? If you are unaware of what I’m talking about, the attached image is that of an Iraqi man who had a bag over his head and had wires attached to his hands and was told to stand on a box. The Americans then told him that if he even moved a muscle that “the explosives” he was standing on would blow him up. So could you please remove the image of you wearing the shirt that has similarities to the photos from Abu Ghraib. Thank you and i hope you understand
Them:i am aware of the similarities. I took this photo to remind people that this did happen and still does to this day. i understand that it can be found offensive or make people uncomfortable. I am sorry if it does. I try to make people to think….hopefully for themselves. I understand why this photo makes you uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable for the same reasons. If you look on my site I also have pictures of me in Mickey Mouse shirts blindfolded and binded. I have racist postcards from the past and books about “retarded” people. Along with such items I sell books on philosophy and religion, classic literature and other books that will make people think. 
Me:then why are you capitalizing on this image? This is not an art form if your intention is to sell t-shirts. The fact that you are wearing a cat t-shirt that says “i don’t do mornings” while in this pose is not making anyone analyze anything about the events that took place from that prison. If anything you are making a mockery of the iraqi people and the people who suffered at the hands of american troops. I think you really need to evaluate what you are trying to do with this picture.

He is refusing to take the picture down and i would really appreciate it if i get some Tumblr support and pressure him into taking this picture down. 
Thank you.
