Things don't change, we just notice them less. this picture has shook me to my core. what can i do to help?
women for sale in the market in libya, we are against s***e trade. if you are against s***e trade share!
"slavery ended over 150 years ago. move on." yet, you won't take down mass produced effigies of those who fought to keep black people enslaved, even though, as you say, we should be moving on. yet we still force black kids to go to schools named after soldiers who fought to keep their ancestors enslaved. how does that not turn your stomach?? yeah, and everyone totally stopped drinking alcohol during prohibition simply because it was illegal, just like how you totally don't smoke w**d because it's illegal.(/sarcasm)
if you think the suffering ended because it was illegal to own people, you're lying to yourself. if you think the abuse and oppression isn't bleeding into the present day, you're being willfully ignorant. there's not a neutral zone to be had here. you're either helping or hurting. just because you don't understand or haven't experience that that point of view doesn't make it not real. #racism#beapartofthesolution#helpingorhurting#slavery#blacklivesmatter#fuckmaga#fuckthepatriarchy#justsaynotowhitesupremacy#beanadvocate#racismwontjustgoaway#havetheconversation#racismisreal
