why my little brother is an asshole
I’m not crying because of you; you’re not worth it. I’m crying because my delusion of who you were was shatterted by the truth of who you are.
It’s always been you even when I didn’t want it to be, even when it broke my heart over and over again. It’s just always been you.
White People: “You blacks need to get over what we did to you. It was so long ago and it wasn’t even that bad. So what if us honest hard working christians could attend a lynching after church, where’s the issue in that?”
this shit was happening like 40 fucking years ago. hell this shit STILL HAPPENS
The fact that he has on a u.s. army sweatshirt is just …..
history is incredibly fucked up and the 1943 race riots in Detroit were incredibly fucked upbut the second photo is much more clear about the interactions between these three. Source on the 2nd photo was an issue of Life magazine from the time. They were helping him to safety.
Well done Tumblr. You posted a picture without context and made two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.
THIS IS AN EXACT REPRESENTATION OF MEDIA MAKING YOU SEE WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO SEE
Fuck you tumblr.
More often than not, what we’re told or shown is either incomplete in detail or taken out of context. It’s what you don’t see - what people choose to hide that really matters. We have increasing power to check the validity of what we see and ought to do so.
This is why I’m always suspicious of everything on tumblr.
this is why you should never, ever, EVER believe ANYTHING on tumblr.
Or the media
I think the point is that we never bat an eye and feed on everything they throw at us. Someone showed us what we didn’t see, maybe we shouldn’t trust the media as much as we do and actually research things ourselves..
Good Guy Burglar
no you don’t understand.
he fully knew that he’d be arrested for breaking and entering but he still reported this.
he know he’d go to jail, but he put human decency before his own freedom and called out this disgusting sexual perversion.
and if you don’t think that’s the tightest shit ever get out of my face.
This halloween please say no to these costumes please just say no they are fucking insulting and Dia de los Muertos is NOT HALLOWEEN I REPEAT NOT HALLOWEEN THIS IS NOT A COSTUME PLEASE STOP TREATING IT LIKE ONE
TO ALL THE PEOPLE GETTING FUCKED OFF AT MY POST. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I MADE IT. FOR YOUR PINCHE GUERO PENDEJX ASSES. “WE DO IT OUT OF RESPECT,” MY ASS.
this is capitalism ripping through my memories i hold so sacred. Memories of walking through the streets of Chapala after school with my grandmother, and the smell of plants for the preparation of the big event. Memories of memories of memories
This is capitalism and white supremacy destroying, erasing and making new… something that has connected me with my elderes and ancestors,
This is whiteness telling me my body, our gente is unwanted, dehumanized and conditioned to death but at the same time extracting a part of my identity and wearing it as a mask.
This is a mask made of our dead and torn bodies… this is literally a mask made out of ripped bloody flesh. The flesh of migrants who die every year trying to cross.. the flesh of people who become criminalized and confined behind bars. The bloody flesh of torn bodies from years of exploitation in sweat shops, fruit and vegetable fields, dish washers.. domestic workers…
this is our flesh ripped out cleaned, pampered and styled to fit a white face.
