I used to hate looking at pictures of myself. I used to hate taking pictures of myself and having them taken. Over these past two years I’ve begun to grow out of that and have begun to love myself unconditionally. It feels good to be vain sometimes because at one point and time I couldn’t even look at a picture of myself without pointing out a flaw. Now, I can point out what I love about myself, I don’t fight compliments when they are given. I’m learning to love me, and it feels amazing

but the white people who are suffering are not suffering because they are white
yeah I said
Black London: Life Before Emancipation by Gretchen Gerzina (1995)
A glimpse into the lives of the thousands of Africans living in eighteenth century London.
don’t romanticize basic rights
it’s not attractive that a man is a feminist
it’s not sexy that a man finally realizes the prejudice against women and how very oppressed women are
it’s common sense
The Ebola Virus attacks normal healthy cells and converts them into zombie cells which then attack the remaining cells and so forth. The cells end up eating the body from with in.
The whole zombie apocalypse analogy was/is a reference to this pandemic.
The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible. In a time when Islamophobia only seems to be on the rise in the West, a practice that is so personal and diverse has become a warped and misunderstood part of a flat and monolithic picture of Muslim women.
Can we all just once again laugh at how badly white people want to white-wash Kemet (ancient Egypt)?
This was years ago but this thought came up. The picture above is supposedly—to white people—how King Tutankhamun looked like. This is a reconstruction of this young pharaoh who ruled in an advanced civilization 3,000 years ago in Africa, where—no matter how hard they want to ignore this fact—humankind began.
Apparently, the Swiss who created this reconstruction, claim that the famous King Tut belongs to a certain genetics profile group that “… more than 50 per cent of all men in Western Europe belong, indicating that they share a common ancestor”.
Apparently white people love to believe they came from the Caucasus mountains, where the blood line of King Tut—again a young pharaoh who ruled in Africa—started 9,500 years ago, according to these Swiss cheeses.
Of course these Swiss army knives don’t have that much proof to back up that theory. It’s ridiculous what white people will say to make sure that Ancient Egypt wasn’t created and ruled by Black people.
P.S: What about these depictions of King Tut during his time three thousand years ago?
That last gif….
Bill. Fucking. Nye.
Can’t go wrong with him. He is the shit.
All lost in a book. Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.
