Raven-Symoné just posted this image on her Facebook and polish, it’s made me MAD. This is what I write about it on Facebook:
——————————-
As an African this image is infuriating to me personally.
1) Africa is a continent, not a country
2) Africa has prosperous, beautiful big cities with wealthy, comfortable, happy people as well as people in dire states of need.
THERE ARE EMPOVERISHED PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND THEY ALL NEED OUR HELP. This common image of Africa as ‘Land of the Charity Cases’ makes me furious. You think of Africa and it’s all pitiful starving children, tears, hands extended, begging for your spare change and off cuts. I feel like Western Asia often gets tarred with the same brush. Charity is needed in Africa like it us needed in Asia, Europe, The Americas, Australasia, all over the world. I’m not saying STOP giving to charity I’m just saying that there are millions of people rich and poor in Africa and they demand respect not pity. We aren’t begging for your damned ice water, we are looking for ways to build pumps and wells in our villages. We don’t wan the food your child won’t finish at the table, we want the means to grow and buy our own. Africa is striving for Education, improved infrastructure, to create wealth for all of us that desire it, to create a future that isn’t war torn and tumultuous. We are more than just your ‘I’m such a good person’ trump card, we are millions of lives and languages and backgrounds and faces that are all grouped together, called primitive, with our hands twisted to look outstretched and begging.

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. 
According to an IRIN report in 2005, 82% of arable land in South Africa is still owned by Europeans and those of European descent through colonization.
Yet a lot of people be giving away dresses and bibles to “Africa” as a sum of thinking that is going to solve the problems persisting in specific countries in Africa.
Can we stop homogenizing the experiences of an entire continent for white saviour complexes please?

You are not helping the situations long term, and you are also continueing the racist perpetuation of Africans as “backwards”, “starving”, and “unable to fend for themselves”. When they are very much able to do so if it wasn’t for colonization and white supremacy, which you continue to perpetuate through unsustainable aid, and painting the picture of the “poor Africans”.

the fact that anthony mackie had to more or less beg for a role for like 5 YEARS until marvel had to tell him to STOP is really saying something about this whitebread franchise and their reluctance to cast poc

In the coming days we’ll find out who leaked the photos and which room of the house they did it in and which weapon they used, but those details are just a different kind of pornography for people who would rather know the caliber of a mass shooter’s guns instead of the names of his victims

he wasn’t counting on how little traction it would have, and they picked a big hill to try it out -

"fuck fuck FUCK i FUCKED UP—"

luckily for the world, sam was recording; a vine consisting of just bucky whizzing through the screen yelling obscenities goes viral within hours. it’s tagged #hecallshimselfthewintersoldier, and steve doesn’t stop laughing about it for days.

ii-wayoflife-ii said: Hey x wow loving your blog, but do you really think you can destroy hate with hate? It can't be all the white people, its just a majority of them. But love this blog anyway x

angrywocunited:

Um…..

We don’t hate white people, we hate white supremacy

We want to dismantle and eradicate white supremacy in our communities. 

There is a difference. -G

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

A good pole dancer could probably kick some major ass too, just saying. I mean, I know I sure don’t have the strength to do that.

Right, take something that was made FOR sex workers, that strippers get stigmatized for and turn it into an olympic sport that muggles can participate in while actual sex workers are still getting stigmatized and discriminated. 
Take the history of pole dancing and community behind it (which consists of SEX WORKERS) for the gain of muggles. Take something that strippers work on daily not by class but by teaching each other while at work and use it for non sex workers to profit off of.
Cause you know, this doesn’t happen all the time.

I know I just reblogged this with my own call out, but a. I’m not a sex worker and b. this is a lot more precise.Just fucking DON’T

    PSA FOR CIS FOLKS:

    skepticalspectacles:

    When a trans person tells you it’s okay for mistakenly using the wrong name or pronouns, it means the instance is forgiven or dismissed and the conversation can move on. In reality, it still hurts but we say it’s okay because we understand you are making an effort to get it right. This is not an invitation to stop making that effort. You are not the exclusion to the rule.

    everybody on here always acts like some criminal mastermind when in reality 40 of you guys told me to smash it with a rock and at least 3 told me to seduce it

    HOW COME WHEN HARRY GETS BITTEN BY THE BASILISK IN CHAMBER OF SECRETS THAT DOESNT DESTROY THE HORCRUX IN HIM SOMEONE ANSWER THIS???

    Because…

    Because… Shoot.

    Can we get JKR on the phone ?

    yes let me just pull out her number real quick hang on yes hello 911 can i speak to jkr pls

    Because he doesn’t have a horcrux inside him - he IS the horcrux (I think. Been a while)

    He has to be destroyed (ie die) for the part of Voldemort’s soul to die - and the phoenix saves him, thus preserving the horcrux.

    right?

    Can we stop pretending harry potter has a coherent plot and logical characters?
