Black soldiers have been portrayed or ignored by mainstream history. Yet, they have been at the center of every American military saga since Crispus Attacks drew the unfortunate distinction of being the first American killed in the Revolutionary War. This photo set tries to reverse that erasure.
Being the only surgeon in the Soviet Antarctic Expedition, Leonid Rogozov (27) had to perform surgeory on himself when he found out that his appendix was inflamed and could burst any moment. With the assistance of a meteorologist and an engineer (and some local anesthesia) he removed his appendix. Bad ass
And don’t trip: “we” in this case is black people, because white people wouldn’t have to have internet campaigns calling for justice. That officer would be in jail right now, not out of town on paid vacation.
meanwhile the police fill the block with tear gas. who’s protecting and serving here
This is really important
imma be reblogging this every time I see it
@OwningMyTruth: White people are more worried about “freedom of the press” than the assault on black lives and bodies
This is so disgusting. It’s racial profiling and all it does is add problems.
And this is it. This shows how so many white people think and, brilliantly, also reveals that this is what they think of as “racial profiling” since they have never (and will never) experience what actual racial profiling is like. Is this the extent of the injustice that you feel right now? That black people are calling out structural violence against our bodies and lives by white and non-black people and speaking truth to power against white supremacist power structures? A community is being occupied and militarized to assault and silence black people after Darren Wilson murdered a member of their community, but you’re the victim? Ferguson police are trying to cover this up and justify the death of yet another black person (because remember, this happens every 28 hours to black people and isn’t “random”), but it’s about you, right? Not the fact that mainstream media outlets again and again are focusing their reports on the white journalists and caring nothing about the dozens of black people who had been assaulted and arrested during the protests in Ferguson. How about that the headline of the lead trending story on Politico for the last 3 days was “Reporters arrested in Ferguson," no mention of black life or Mike Brown, no mention of the antiblackness and surveillance which are central here and have always been a part of black life, no mention of the fact that if this were a white neighborhood this militarization, silencing and brutality would be unimaginable, while it’s simply par for course in a long history of this country’s assault against black people and black life.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- white people have a huge victim complex. Black people are being assaulted, hurt and killed as we speak in a militarized, occupied town simply for demanding accountability from the police for the murder of a child in their community, and all you can say is that you are being “racially profiled” or wax obtusely about “not all white people”? How selfish and narcissistic can you be? How ahistorical is your perspective? You have enough time to write bullshit like this on tumblr, but not enough to have some damn sense and use Google and see how many articles are out there (by and large by white people) bemoaning the assault on journalists in Ferguson and giving short shrift to the black lives which were brutalized long before, during and after them? The number of comments on this post and others that I’ve gotten saying that they as white people are getting “racially profiled” right now is absurd, even with the violence against black life in Ferguson so prominently on display, and it goes to show you that for all the time you people waste saying “not all white people,” at the end of the day the vast majority of you play true to script and are the racists you try to separate yourselves from and demonize.
For white people, racial profiling is a tweet about structural racism that hurts their feelings. For black people, racial profiling could get them killed.
Can I just reblog this over and over?
Good cause I’m gonna.
This can be interpreted on so many levels
literally my life with racial anxiety
this video spoke to me yo
"…When the whole world was falling in on Steve, to find out that the one thing he thought he knew—that his bestfriend was dead—was not even true…it was just a great way to pull the final rug out from under him."
“That’s one of the reasons that this is perhaps more emotional than most comic book movies. Because we always decide, What’s the worst thing that can happen to your character? And it was pretty clear that the worst thing that can happen to our main character was: My best friend, who I thought was dead, is a killing machine.”
