Study finds: White children far more negative about interactions with different races than Black children.

Is anyone actually surprised though?

These are the children of the adults who were raised by the people who fought to keep Jim Crow alive. These children are being raised by the offspring of men and women who lynched black people for sitting on the wrong side of a restaurant; the very people who fought to keep segregation alive and killed Martin Luther King Jr.

So by all means, I doubt we needed a study to prove this fact true.

To add to the above argument:

Even if the child is raised in a household where race is NOT a topic of discussion the child will still pick up on Racial Micro Aggressions.

If you have never spoken ill of black men, yet you clutch your purse or lock your windows when one is around; your child will notice that and process “black men are dangerous”. If you discuss how you don’t like when people get tans and have darker skin your child will process “dark skin is ugly” and it doesn’t help that the mass media the child is watching also projects this notion that white is the standard of beauty and those who do not adhere are deemed ugly and unworthy. If you don’t associate with people of color or keep any relations short and brief?; your child will too.

Many parents fail to realize that their children are ALWAYS watching them, always. Just like baby ducks following their mama, a child follows it’s parents. It’s a survival tactic for a child to copy the adult and bring the caregivers characteristics into their own being.

You may think “oh he didn’t say anything” or “he’s playing he’s not listening to my conversation”; but he is. Which is why many people turn out like their parents or develop similar parenting styles.

Please please please please please PLEASE!

When you talk about racism in Europe DO NOT confuse it with xenophobia.

Yes, there is prejudice against people who have white skin. No, it is not racism. It is not based on their RACE, but on the fact that they are from another place/culture.

Racism and xenophobia are different things, they work differently, they exist for different reasons, and every time I see another person saying, “but in Europe RAcISm AffECTs WHitE PeopLE toO?!?!?!” It makes me want to hit something.

you-make-me--brave said: Are you aware that Hamas has refused all FOUR ceasefire negotiations? FOUR. How many did Israel agree to? All four. Death is a terrible thing but unless you want the entire world to explode into chaos the terrorist group aka Hamas must be defeated.

standwithpalestine:

Oh lord. 

You’d love that, wouldn’t you? You’d love for Hamas (you know, the democratically elected government) to accept ceasefires which don’t include dismantling the world’s largest open-air prison and lifting Israel’s illegal blockade on Gaza. Why should Palestinians accept going back to food insecurity and living like prisoners again?

Let me remind you one of the ways in which the Zionist government punishes the civilian population - in the words of senior Israeli official Dov Weisglass: “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.”

Also, did you have the same reaction about Israel as above when they rejected Hamas’ proposal for a 10-year truce

but unless you want the entire world to explode into chaos” ( ͡°_ ͡°)

The Pansexual Project

wingsofsammy:

Hi everyone! I have a project that has been in my mid for a while, and I want to make it happen. But for that, I need the help of the tumblr people to signal boost the project. Here’s some explanation.

I want to make a video to show people that yes, pansexuals exist, and yes, we should acknowledge them. So, fellow pansexuals, here’s what to do if you want to participate, and raise awareness against pan erasure:

  • Film a video of yourself saying your first name, your country, and “I am pansexual” in your first language (if your first language is not French of English, it would be nice from you to precise what language you are speaking so I can translate it).
  • Send the video to this email address: thepansexualproject@gmail.com
  • Don’t forget to add your tumblr url in the email if you want me to send you the link of the video when it’s done!

//IT IS GOING TO BE POSTED ON YOUTUBE, SO IF IT IS NOT SAFE FOR YOU FOR YOUR FAMILY OR FRIENDS TO SEE IT, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE//

I would like to have at least 20 to 60 people participating, but I don’t have many followers, so this is why I need as many reblogs as possible. So please, even if you don’t want to be part of the video, or even if you’re not pansexual, your help would be highly appreciated! Thank you for everyone who’s willing to help!

What compels someone to put autoplay music on their blog? Everyone knows that everyone hates it but some people do it anyway, why?

standwithpalestine:

Israel puts on a show for the world’s media by reminding them over and over again how they tell Palestinian civilians to “evacuate” (which is an insult in itself since they’re not allowed to leave Gaza due to the illegal blockade), but the reality on the ground is that they tell Palestinians ‘we will kill you no matter where you go - you are our targets’ by bombing all the places they’re taking shelter in - ambulances, hospitals and UN schools.
