History textbooks should all be titled “White Fanfiction.”
White Male Fanfiction.*
No, I said White Fanfiction and that’s what I meant, or did you forget how you learned in school that Susan B. Nigger Hating Anthony is an American hero? My status as a black man does not erase my male privilege, and white feminists love to point that out every five seconds, so I think it’s about time y’all started to accept that your status as women does not erase your white privilege. Do we need a history lesson about how many lynchings took place on the basis of a black dude looking at a white woman, or how the race riots on the beaches in Australia against middle eastern men was because one of them whistled at a white woman?
parkperch asked: Sometimes I get the feeling that white people are missing something rather more important than melanin in their skin. I'm having trouble coming up with a word that covers it but it's something like connectedness or contentment or mutual aid or shared identity -- whites seem to only have it when they're oppressing nonwhites or stealing their culture.
white people are missing empathy
Southern trees bear strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
Strange fruit hanging from the popular trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant south
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop
Strange Fruit by Abel Meeropol
A Tale Of Two Hoodies - a controversial painting by artist/activist Michael D’Antuono.
Inspired by the Trayvon Martin case, this painting symbolizes the travesty of racially profiling innocent children and how present day prejudices affect policy.

My culture is not a fucking fashion statement.
This is not indie or sexy it’s racist and offensive.
“These fictions create confusion when they meet reality, these fictions can also cause harm when they replace reality. Today, there are 4.1 Million American Indians in this country, and many of them [like me] are urban. In fact, New York City has 100,000 American Indian people, while here in Albuquerque there are 33,000 American Indians. Now, we do not look, act, behave or believe in the same things, in fact, there is no one way to look or act, or to be Indian. We are diverse as the five-hundred and sixty-two sovereign nations.” – Professor Nancy Marie Mithlo, Chiricahua Apache, at the TEDxABQ Women Conference speaking about Cultural Appropriation and Hyper-sexualization of American Indian Women
“Native Americans have fought hard to be allowed to have cultural identity — a basic right that was outlawed by the government until relatively recently. So yes, seeing a spray-tan sexy Pocahontas raising her hand in “hau” is more than an annoyance. It trivializes the fight that my parents and grandparents devoted their lives to. It trivializes my life and my sense of self. And I refuse to believe that any decent person would tell me to move on, to get over it, or to be flattered by it. My great-grandmother is not a Halloween costume. This shouldn’t be so hard to understand.”— Itacawin
