As I keep saying, this time is different. The largest march in decades taking place in Palestine right now as thousands march from Ramallah to Jerusalem in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in Gaza. Absolutely incredible. May Allah protect them all. #48KMarch #FreePalestine

I guess it’s almost official that my GF is moving in! She’ll have her own room and it’ll be way cheaper than any other options.
But first we gatta work the kinks out.
And I need a job.

Negritud en México 

Probably the documentary over Afromexicans that I’ve liked the most. Its in Spanish but it talks about not just la Costa Chica (what most documentaries about Afromexicans focus on) but about African and West Indian immigrants AND Black Seminoles, something I hadn’t seen mentioned before. Its only 11 minutes long but the full documentary is supposed to be uploaded eventually.

Also its just nice to be able to share this with my mom, she’s from Durango, normally thought to be predominantly white or mestizo, but she herself is [visibly] afromestizo. I’ve read about Black Seminoles having been in Durango and Coahuila and its just nice to be able to share this with her when I know that despite facing discrimination and racism due to her hair and skin, no one ever spoke about black ancestry. Instead, it was attributed to the an indigenous (Tepehuano and Tarahumara) ancestor here or there, more specifically “Si pues tu mama esta haci de negra por que tu tia [insert diff name every time] era india..piel negra.. pera era india,” hmm.

Wait.

Petition to get “not having had sexual intercourse with another person” to replace virgin 2K14.

But don’t reduce it to intercourse. My personal opinion is that virginity, as a social construct, is more about having sexual intimacy (defined as you see fit) for the first time.

Hmmm I agree that it is a social construct, but I think there could be a distinction between sexual intercourse and sexual intimacy. There is, I guess, a fine line but perhaps there’s a distinction that should be explained. Or explicit when we are trying to talk about sex.
I guess the point in this post is to show that virginity as a word is vague, so being specific as to what you are talking about is necessary.

Hey I'm starting to post my photography on tumblr & I would love to show the world, it would mean the world, if you took the time to check it out & follow me back? Have a nice day 🌸☺️ bisous.

Saw some of your photos! I’m not a photographer but I think you have something going here :) hey followers check them out! :)

Yes. It was just very clear that from the get-go that there was an agenda tonight to be anti-science. I've literally never read a book on social justice (working on it), but just being around the right blogs on Tumblr has given me a feel for the concepts and language. I just have a real problem when people say 'go use google' and ignore other people's access and ability AND refuse to do the same to correct their own misinformation. Absurd.

I mean I’ve been anti-science for a while not because of the jargon but because of the systems that dictates scientific research and language. But that’s neither here nor there lol

15-Year-Old African Kid Tells Madonna To Go ‘Have Sex’ with Herself →

almightykushlord:

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE

Rawwwwwww

Thanks for the suggestions, I just sent emails requesting confirmation, by the organizations that I applied to work at, that they received my application and if the position was still available.

I even asked the organization that denied me if they knew of organizations that do similar work where I might be a good fit.

The Haitian Revolution - A short Reading List (of Anglophone scholars)

"More than two hundred years after Haitian independence was declared on January 1, 1804, it remains a challenge to perceive the spirit that fueled the first abolition of slavery in the New World and gave rise to the second independent nation in the Americas. As recently as ten years ago, the Haitian Revolution (1789-1804), which created “Haiti” out of the ashes of French Saint Domingue, was the least understood of the three great democratic revolutions that transformed the Atlantic world in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. That is no longer true. In the decade since the 2004 bicentennial, a genuine explosion of scholarship on the Saint-Domingue revolution has profoundly enriched our memory of what Hannah Arendt, in her comparative study of the American and French revolutions, called “the revolutionary tradition and its lost treasure”. It is not clear to what extent this development has affected broader public understandings of the Haitian predicament, however."

By Professor Malick W. Ghachem for the John Carter Brown Library online exposition: “The Other Revolution: Haiti 1789-1804.”

* Much more scholarship could have been included in this list. To find more monographs and articles on the Haitian Revolution or, for a general reading list on Haiti, see here and here.
