Reblog to save a life.

Yes!!!!!

Sadly, being in the humanities means that I will almost NEVER find my books for free online (since most aren’t technically text books) but this is for others, hope this helps :(

Pale skin gets stigmatized, too.

When we think of stigmatization and skin color, we often think of “racism” and “Racial discrimination”. However, what it really boils down to in many of those cases is a difference of culture, but when skin color does come into the picture, it is simply your own amount of melanin that can…

O-mie…. thank you thank you thank you…. a million thank you’s for a perfect example of what I keep having to explain to people constantly - it’s not about colour.
I just wanna throw out that there’s also a BIG difference between colonial/settler cultures, immigrant cultures and aboriginal ones that no one thinks to consider before going ‘oh well you’re white’ in relation to issues of racism, cultural appropriation and all that jazz, especially in North America (where I don’t think people even know there are EUROPEAN ABORIGINAL PEOPLES such as the Sami who are, surprise, surprise, white). 

Yep!  The Sami are awesome.  And they, even, will sometimes do a bit of touristy things up in lapland (such as sled rides with dogs or reindeer, little excursions like that) and sell their wares to outsiders.  We’ve also got the Amish, who aren’t really aboriginal, but cling to an archaic culture and co-exist just fine amidst modern culture.  

I have been sitting here pouring my frustration into a class assignment and you just summed up half the point I was trying to make. You will be cited though really only the prof/class will see it anyway. :)

I’ve been getting eternally frustrated with people telling me ‘you can’t do that you’re white’ and having to go “yes but you know I’m not Canadian, etc, etc etc, my own damn great-gran was a white witch/healer, areas of Europe (and rest of the world) have similar ideas to First Nations so I’m playing in that.” Meanwhile, this chick is also ‘white’ and wearing bloody moccasins. LOL

*Edit: I should say my art final project subject is religion, ie christianity vs pagan/shaman/ancient beliefs. I thought the issue would be ‘oh noes blasphemy’ not ‘OMG WHITE GIRL APPROPRIATION’. But anyway, yes, thanks, much love. :3

Yeah, witches, right?  Talk about persecution.  Honestly I think a lot of those persecuted as witches would have preferred slavery to being burnt alive, weighted with stones until they die, tortured, drowned, etc and so on.  People who get on the “PoC are so oppressed” bandwagon fail to realize that 1:  Slavery has existed to all races, all colors, since humankind can remember.  2:  Slavery still exists today, but is mainly targeted at young women who get abducted into the sex trafficking trade, or live in extremely oppressed countries.  I myself get tired of hearing how “priviliged” white people are when many times, we too get denied jobs, scholarships and helpful programs because of our race (I myself got denied a job because I wasn’t black, and couldn’t find an appropriate scholarship that wasn’t for black or latino teenagers when I got into college, since my grades weren’t AMAZING but my test scores were.) 

It gets so bad with law enforcement as well, where if someone calls out someone of color for committing a crime, apparently punishing them for it is “racist” and clearly we’re just “ignoring the white crime”, but if you look at FBI statistics, it’s something like…for example, 94% or something of all african americans murdered were killed by another african american.  Races tend to stick to their own for the bad shit, yet still, it’s immediately persecuted on the white cop making the arrest for “harassing” or “instigating it”, or that there was racial profiling, etc. 

sdhkjfshfks I could go on for hours, but I’m sure someone is going to call me a racist eventually.  That’s just how bad it is though, you can’t even say a simple fact here without someone calling you a racist.  There are bad white folk, there are bad black folk, and everything in between.  There are rich and poor, happy and sad, talented and not so much, but they’re all just people in the end.  And honestly, people are assholes. :C

When I lived in the states kids found out I wasn’t Christian (yey for fill in the info pages) and it was this ridiculous thing of ‘we can’t talk to you, you’re going to hell, you’re a demon, etc’ … oh ok cool, I like fire and it seems better than where you’re going. LOL

For sureeeeeee, however I have also seen ridiculous amounts of discrimination towards PoC in my life and esp with what’s going on in the states where people are RIDICULOUSLY racist against black people… like why? Seriously why? WE ARE ALL HUMAN. I would have to say I agree with white people having the easiest life setting idea… but it doesn’t mean we were all the colonial super powers who enslaved and killed so many people. I have to agree with programs being put into place to help various areas and people but people will always take advantage or not have enough or some bloody thing… not that you stop trying but you have to be aware that it’s not the neighbour that’s the problem it’s really stemming from who controls the governments (who yes are greedy white men) but that doesn’t make all white people bad either….

Then you get these things of ‘I can’t be seen as racist so I’m going to do _____’, no how about you just actually try to stop being racist? I think the point is if people are racist to you, you don’t start a contest as to who can be more racist back. We are also all prone to thinking our problems are more important than anyone else’s… which also means that we don’t want to see if the other group has problems - this is just as true of ‘white people’ as it is now with PoC and this obsession people have with screaming cultural appropriation!! and covering their ears. It’s easier to separate us all than to try and work together… I keep saying the day humanity gets the fuck over race and culture is the day the aliens arrive to take over.

Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.

The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

YUS MORE WAFRICA!

how odd there is no one crying ‘cultural appropriation’. how odd indeed.

^ if there was a white person involved they most certainly would have.

This was my first thought too, which is sad because I think that the photos are really awesome, but then the cynical side that tumblr’s made in me went: “interesting nobody’s complaining about cultural appropriation right now”.

Just shows the general hypocrisy in their thinking.

Yep.  But damn those styles are adorable. <3

… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.

Shots fired.

More like you morons completely forget your ancestors did the same damn shit and then try to change the definition of words to exempt yourself from criticism. 

Yes because PoC have set up a system where People of Color have ~poc privilege~, don’t confuse “racism” and “prejudice”.

Actually yes they have.
