    The day was June 19th, 1865, when the enslaved African-Americans in Galveston, Texas, finally heard the news that they were finally a free people, almost three years after President Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

    While I am promoting my T-shirt design, I would like to share a post just read "I want to take some time to express a moment of humbled appreciation and profound gratitude for the countless black revolutionaries who worked to abolish explicit slavery in the United States and free themselves and each other. The incredible bravery and sacrifice of every single one-- the teachers, the guides, the rebels, the protectors, the activists, the mothers-- echoes through the generations. I will spend my life trying to appreciate the weight of this struggle.

    The United States is still enslaving black people through mass incarceration, and contemporary abolitionists are still active in this fight. For other non-black folks in solidarity with this struggle, please take some time with me on Juneteenth to reflect on this history and commit to the ways in which you can aid the fight against slavery and work to end policing incarceration, and white supremacy.

    Revolution is not an event, but a continuous process"

    Happy Juneteenth Day. Stay Free. Hope For Freedom

    okay i fold, bobaluke and bobadinluke do intrigue me, specifically because Boba is now in charge of Tatooine’s foremost crime syndicate and Luke is from Tatooine and is going to have Opinions about this

    specifically, Luke is the first freeborn Skywalker in many generations, his father was a slave, his grandmother was a slave, slavery was all around Luke growing up. it’s impossible that someone as kind and empathetic as Luke wouldn’t have strong feelings on the subject. his feelings on Boba at first amount to “that bounty hunter that took Han away >:(”. but then who steps in and fills the power vacuum created by Leia strangling Jabba but Boba Fett, brother to millions of slaves and with his own complicated views on all that and he and his people start cleaning up slavers, start removing slave chips, and Luke is like Really. THIS is the man that brings the rains to Tatooine? Boba Fett? Really? I GUESS

    #bobaluke #and if it's bobadinluke then din is there to make sure they don't come to blows bc the feelings here are intense #[luke voice] they say slavery will end when rain falls on tatooine... OR BOBA FETT TAKES IT OVER I GUESS #posts by me

    sometimes i wish the fallout series was a more obscure so right wing scumbags wouldnt flock to it in droves but there is something to be said about niche games with absolutely dogshit communities

    #txt #im mostly talking about a game called kenshi #it's another post-apoc game which i can really only recommend if you like a challenging experience at least at the start #its politics are underbaked and it has a dim outlook on the human condition #though this can mostly be attributed to the open-ended nature of the game #and the fact it was mostly developed by one guy over a period of twelve years #tonally id almost compare it to fo1 though kenshi takes place on another planet #a lot of the creature and environment designs are really compelling. there's a lot of room for lore analysis #but you know what else there is? a slaver nation made up of racist religious zealots! #and can you fucking guess which nation is ''''ironically'''' memed about by fans the most? :) #<- screaming #the smaller rebel factions are much more compelling ideologically and because the two major factions are bastard slaver nations #but because one of those factions is a deus vult-type religious nation who hates women and and other species #white guy gamers '''''''''''''''ironically''''''''''''''' identify with them the most #uncannily similar to how idiot redditors will rp as legion soldiers unprompted #these tags are so fucking long lol. just wanted to vent #if you do for some reason want to play the game cw for slavery murder cannibalism etc like i said dim outlook on the human condition #fortunately you cannot become a slaver yourself which is a relief

    So, we’re still going to execute people... but someone who supports pedophilia and slavery is serving 192 months??? This is an issue that deserves national attention. Isn’t it obvious enough? We can’t control people. 

    Pass the Equality Act. Punish people who commit crimes of police brutality. Abolish white supremacy. Indefinitely. Period. 

    Extreme poverty and discrimination is not justifiable so don’t use it as an excuse to not act. If you did your job, people would feel safer.

    I have raised you to respect every human being as singular, and you must extend that same respect into the past. Slavery is not an indefinable mass of flesh. It is a particular, specific enslaved woman, whose mind is active as your own, whose range of feeling is as vast as your own; who prefers the way the light falls in one particular spot in the woods, who enjoys fishing where the water eddies in a nearby stream, who loves her mother in her own complicated way, thinks her sister talks too loud, has a favorite cousin, a favorite season, who excels at dressmaking and knows, inside herself, that she is as intelligentand capable as anyone. “Slavery” is this same woman born in a world that loudly proclaims its love of freedom and inscribes this love in its essential texts, a world in which these same professors hold this woman a slave, hold her mother a slave, her father a slave, her daughter a slave, and when this woman peers back into the generations all she sees is the enslaved. She can hope for more. She can imagine some future for her grandchildren. But when she dies, the world—which is really the only world she can ever know—ends. For this woman, enslavement is not a parable. It is damnation. It is the never-ending night. And the length of that night is most of our history. Never forget that we were enslaved in this country longer than we have been free. Never forget that for 250 years black people were born into chains—whole generations followed by more generations who knew nothing but chains.
    You must struggle to truly remember this past in all its nuance, error, and humanity. You must resist the common urge toward the comforting narrative of divine law, toward fairy tales that imply some irrepressible justice. The enslaved were not bricks in your road, and their lives were not chapters in your redemptive history. They were people turned to fuel for the American machine. Enslavement was not destined to end, and it is wrong to claim our present circumstance—no matter how improved—as the redemption for the lives of people who never asked for the posthumous, untouchable glory of dying for their children.

    On May 20, 1865 General McCook read Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation during a ceremony in Tallahassee, officially ending slavery in Florida. That same day, his jubilant troopers raised the U.S. flag over the state capitol building. Tallahassee was the penultimate Confederate state capital to rejoin the USA.

    A paint inspired by Francis bacon,

    The goal of my project was to re-design a stool that we have in class and make it into a real concept for a design or include it in a painting based on a well known artist or designer. I went with Francis bacon because i LOVE his art, i made a long description of who he was and how i made this painting based on him (won’t upload it because it’s long and it’s in french🥖)

    White nationalists/imperialists be really still pushing the "WhiTe pEoPlE EndEd sLavEry" "aFriCans s0lD EaCH OtHErS As SlAvES!!" narrative as if yall didn't enslave and kill each other BY MILLIONS less a century ago AFTER slavery was allegedly abolished... SMH ...the holocaust? Communism?? ....hellooooo???

    like, can we just agree there's not a single race above messing up and killing and enslaving each other or are you still hellbent on trying to act like you were the world's civilization champion?

    #also stop trying to act like yall were heroes for ending slavery after profiting off it FOR CENTURIES #it's just bc of the industrial revolution machinery started getting more efficient than slaves so they started to be less useful #slaves were extremely pricey #capitalism doesn't care about morals only money #papi watch#papi truths

    May 3rd, 2021

    You aren't happy. No matter who you are, you must fulfill your own needs; both physical and psychological. You target innocent people because they know right from wrong. We don't want to do your bidding. We aren't here to protect you from the law. If you're corrupt then turn yourself in. If you don't know how, then manifest justice. Prayer and spirituality is a safe space and privilege that doesn't belong to criminals. Violence is not the answer. Religion is not a solution to everything. I don't care if you turn people away from your church, but if you do, you must also turn away violent people. 

    There's really no other context for discrimination besides justice. Justice depends on the safety of human beings. Black people, females and LGBTQ+ people deserve protection. Equality is part of safety. Nobody has said that police work is inherently good, and that's a mistake. That is how fascists and nazis have corrupted our conscience over time. They're perverts and they want to redefine right from wrong. LGBTQ+ people and oppressed groups like Black people and the feminist ancestors of immigrants and slaves who reclaimed their land ESTABLISHED right from wrong. There is no civil society that can be created and supported that existed just to benefit one stereotype of a man. 

    You don't realize it, but you're all the same without the rest of us. Sometimes, you do have to conform, and maybe you're not a kid anymore - it doesn't matter. You shouldn't have to wonder what the difference between right and wrong IS. You're not supposed to kill anybody, or assault women and gay men. You're not supposed to bully your peers. You're not supposed to corrupt your life and your work with threats, addiction and abuse. You are needed. It is not always a privilege and it is never an illusion. You actually have to be qualified.

    Why do people know what's happening to me every, single day? Is my abuser spying on me right now? Is that all that matters? You really don't think there's any other problem here? Maybe one that is more appropriate to debate than my exploitation? (You're sexist. You're paranoid because you don't think consent is a human right. This is what needs to be said.) Nobody likes somebody just to complain. Feminism is not a joke. Shut your mouth and stop abusing people. Anti-semitism is a crime against humanity, rape and child abuse is a crime against humanity. You deserve to be in prison. I'm not comfortable. I'm not racist. You're a pervert. This has nothing to do with love. Stop pretending to have rights and get an education. You're afraid of women and you hate yourself. You never deserved to feel another person's touch. I hope you die alone.
