if you have to say im not racist/transphobic/homophobic ect. before you begin your sentence you should probably just shut up
why do white people use the argument “some black people were sold into slavery by other black people so black people are either as guilty as we are or more so”. white people bought people, enslaved people, raped people, forced assimilation on people, relocated people, tortured people, and continue…
So there was this survey where they ask people questions. The question they chose was “who are the most under represented group?” and this white dude had the nerve to say “white straight males”.
CultureHISTORY: Emmitt Till - (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955)
Today would have marked Till’s 73rd birthday. Sadly his fate was resigned to history when he was brutally murdered at the age of 14 while down in Mississippi visiting relatives in August 1955. The horrendous hate crime became national news and one of the major catalysts for the Civil Rights movement. It’s been reported that Rosa Parks admitted that this boy’s death was on her mind when she refused to give up her seat four months later in December of the same year.
For those who don’t know this vital story in Black (and American) history, Till was brutally slaughtered and thrown in a shallow river by two white men who thought he had disrespected a white woman by merely speaking to her. When his body was returned to his mother in Chicago, she was so distraught and angry that she requested an open casket for his funeral. The pictures were awful but they helped to galvanize the greatest civil rights movement of the 20th century.
If you believe people with dark skin are ugly you don’t deserve to ever be taken seriously.
