    a lot of ppl seem confused on what cultural appropriation is so lemme break it down

    IT IS NOT: enjoying food from another culture, enjoying music from another culture, learning about another culture, or learning another language

    IT IS: using another culture as a costume, wearing religious articles as accessories when you are not a follower of that religion, using a race as a mascot, disrespecting religious or cultural practices.

    theloveofyou said: I just read your post about the Nigerian zionists.... Do these same Nigerians not realize that Israel itself doesn't even like blacks? Or is it completely okay because they're the chosen people? These people treat African migrants like crap, keeping them in concentration camps, spitting on them, telling them they're not wanted and people have the audacity to support a state like this? I'm Christian but I'm not stupid. This is not Gods plan and this is just disgusting. They're blind, honestly.

    atane:

    Not to mention that long before they settled on Palestine, zionists put forward a plan to carve out a piece of East Africa as their “homeland”. See Uganda Proposal.

    That obviously didn’t happen and history went in a different direction, but just imagine the kind of mess that would have been if that plan came to fruition. Occupiers are a scourge and religion does not excuse it.

    I don’t know what to say to the Africans who side with occupation and colonial settlers. Most of them are doing it out of faith and not politics, but that’s no solace. Are their memories short, or does their faith blind them to justice? Maybe it’s a bit of both.

    Christian zionism isn’t just an African thing, but Africans of all people should be more sensitive towards those with occupiers and colonial settlers with the heels of their boots on their necks. Especially Southern Africans. Africans have experience with this sort of brutality. There is no such thing as a fair colonial settler and occupier. By default it is hostile. By default it is violent against the indigenous.

    All I can hope for is that one day some of our African brothers and sisters will wake up from their slumber. Their position is distressing and inhumane. Given the injustice Africans across the continent have suffered, we should know better.

New photo from Gaza today looks like actual hell on earth

What is going on in Gaza at the moment is the most disgusting thing i have ever heard. When I hear people actually justifying what is going on by saying things such as “they are all terrorists anyway”, it honestly makes me shudder that people are so blind to ACTUALLY BELIEVE that babies, families, innocent and ordinary people are “getting what they deserve. These people are trapped inside a small area, no way of escape or safety, being horrifically massacred. People say “it’d be different if it was here”, if it was happening here (which it eventually will be the way shit is going) then YOU would be praying for help from ANYONE who actually gave a shit.Fucking open your eyes to what is going on you racist, ignorant fucks.
sorry for ranting, it’s important.


yes !!!

Sia Bintou spent more than 10 days in MSF’s Ebola treatment center in Guéckédou, Guinea. There were many times when the medical team thought she would not make it, but Bintou beat the disease. Here, staff congratulate her as she is discharged. Right now, Ebola patients have been identified in more than 60 locations in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. MSF is the only aid organization treating people affected by the virus.

    white girls who want my culture’s bindis and saris and henna 

    take my skin colour too

    and my dark brown lips

    take my self-hatred because i don’t fit into the euro-centric ideals of beauty

    take the oppression too

    take the history of colonization that has devastated my country

    and the drones that currently devastate my country

    take all the bad stuff too

    not just the pretty, shiny, sparky bits

    take the ugly, dehumanizing and shitty parts too
