Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

i’m not muslim, but i think it’s extremely upsetting how the term ‘jihad’ has been misinterpreted & co-opted by reactionaries. the term essentially means ‘self-determination’, but the West uses the interpretations of reactionaries as representative of the term to demonize Islam and the concept of jihad as inherently malign

White men make up approximately 36% of the population, but commit 75% of mass shootings. What would be called terrorism by any other skin tone is suddenly some mysterious unnamed disease. We as a society are perfectly happy to further stigmatize mentally ill people, who are far more likely to be victims of violence than commit violence, in the service of protecting white supremacy and male entitlement. —The “Mental Illness” We Refuse To Name: White Male Entitlement | Constituative Outsider (via baemim)

Today on the MBTA, someone called 911 over a lady puking on the subway, claiming she was from Liberia and had Ebola. After they had stopped train service on the Orange line, and escorted her away with a horde of cops and medical responders, it was finally established that she was actually of Haitian descent.

The Ebola epidemic is going to spin off into full-on hypochondriac racism really fast, mark my words.

Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.

This doesn’t even count as cultural appropriation

This isn’t a person robbing a culture, to hell with the others

This is a child born right next to that culture

Who was embraced by the people and taught how to do some of the things they do

Which is not the same as cultural appropriation

No cultural appropriation. Just something really beautiful.

I love the picture where she’s cuddling a frog.

Don’t send her to school when she is older.

… no, but wait a minute… This young girl is not indigenous, she was born from French parents. This is glorifying a white body in Africa and tokenizing her as ~amazing~ and ~beautiful~. I highly doubt the majority of you would reblog this photoset if it was of an indigenous African girl instead. Then again, a photoset of an indigenous African girl with white wildlife would be pretty orientalist.

This isn’t cultural appropriation. It’s the Western gaze glorifying the presence of a white girl in Africa. It honestly astounds me that people find this ~fascinating~ when so many indigenous groups mostly in Subsaharan Africa spend their childhoods growing up among wildlife… but no, they’re seen as “primitive” and “barbaric”, where as this is “really beautiful”, primarily because of how it’s a white body.

What’s even more disgusting is that this young child could not have possibly had any idea, at least at the time these pictures were taken, of how she is being used and contextualized to further white supremacy and captivate the Western gaze.

the kid is having a nice time

this is no way glorifying a white body in africa???? it’s a bunch of parents photographing their child and they have decided to share it with the world

There are several articles that have been written about her, and there are even documentaries about her. What is so fascinating about her? What is the big deal? So many indigenous African children grow up around wildlife, but none of them have been glorified or publicized nearly as much she has. Instead, they’re usually seen as “uncivilized”. There would have no problem if her parents kept these pictures for personal purposes. How this has been displayed to the world through articles being written and documentaries being made with interviews of her, and how she has been glorified for being a white girl growing up among African wildlife is what I have a problem with. Let me make clear that I am not implying that she’s whatsoever at fault for being the subject of these photos. Not at all. I’m accusing her parents of basically selling-out their daughter and allowing her to childhood to be treated with particularity for being a white girl among African wildlife.

i know that big tex’s burning wasn’t an arson but the allegory attached to this image and the burning of big tex is still great and accurately depicts my feelings towards white texan chauvinism
