Anda dando vueltas este video de Tiktok, donde esta joven se espanta x la letra de la canción "Duerme Negrito", a la cual vincula directamente c/ la esclavitud.
🔺Hace tiempo q existe una línea pseudoprogresista q promueve la autocensura en la industria de la música. #AbroHilo
En junio de 2020, el trío americano country pop, Lady Antebellum, a cargo de éxitos como "Need You Now" (ganadora de un Grammy) y "What If I Never Get Over You" anuncia su cambio de nombre de -Lady Antebellum- a -Lady A- ¿El motivo?

El trío alegó públicamente, que la palabra "Antebellum", en su nombre, hacía alusión al estilo arquitectónico de las casas donde vivían (Sur de EEUU). Pero al ser una palabra de origen latín que significa: "antes de la guerra", #Sigue

Warum Twitter mir nicht mehr gut tut, ein Thread:
Das Wichtigste zuerst: Meine TL sieht aus wie sie aussieht, weil sie für mich gemacht wird. Sie ist ein Spiegel dessen, was ich hier so lese, like, schreibe.
Ich bin also an meinem Problem selber schuld.
Früher war Twitter lustig.
Wir wollten uns mit Mett abreiben, hegten einen Fickwunschverdacht oder machten lustige Wortspiele, oder was mit Katzen, was auch immer.

@CarterCritiques and @LOSteelers. I listened to your podcast on the #blacklifematters roundtable. I found it incredibly powerful and moving. I believe there is power in sharing our experiences just like any other traumatic event. I wanted to share one of my personal experiences.
I grew up in Connellsville Pennsylvania. My mother was in the Army so we stayed with our grandmother a lot. The guy who lived below us would shoot up at the house with a rifle as we played in the yard. He a Caucasian male. He would threaten to burn our house down while we slept.
We called the police and they did nothing. I didn't realize at the time how afraid I was all the time. It become normal. That same police department ended up having it's officers busted about 20 years later for corruption. All the officers on the force were Caucasian.

#GeorgeFloyd [of blessed memory] and matters arising.
Pls watch this video!👇
Thanks so much for sharing this. From what I read about Abraham Lincoln in particular, I've always known that he was a reluctant "emancipator" of slaves. We have to cut him some slack in the context
of the time he lived, however. The rest did not surprise me. The US army was still segregated under President Eisenhower to a large extent, while JFK was a beacon of hope.
In the end, though, like the callous murder of George Floyd has shown, black folk have always been given
the short end of the stick since the beginning of time it seems. The cultural significance of protests such as those we are witnessing today may have originated from the American civil rights movement of the 1960s, but they are still very relevant event today. It is important to

In het #fvdjournaal zei Baudet vandaag dat hij de #blacklifematters demonstraties beangstigend vindt. Mijn advies is dan ook: laten de #blacklifematters demonstraties nog even aan blijven houden.
#racisme is 👉🏼Hiddema die wat vooroordelen uit het vakjargon van de psychologie graait, in een poging Akwasi te beledigen. #Baudet reageert instemmend, breed glimlachend #fvdjournaal

Feit 👉🏼 dit laat zien dat #blacklifematters een morele revolutie is.
#fvd heeft de afgelopen 24 uur €798,- betaald aan @Facebook om leugens, xenofobe berichten ["De massale immigratie bedreigt alles wat ons lief is."] en racistische boodschappen ["gevaarlijke radicalen als Akwasi"] onder miljoenen Nederlanders te verspreiden. #blacklifematters ImageImage

THREAD: The Disgusting Culture of Self-Racism in our Own Homes.

“Don’t drink tea - you’ll turn black.”

“Don’t go in the sun. You’ll darken and no one will marry you.”

“Wash your face with milk to become whiter.”

A True Story.

An acquaintance once told me a story:

She says, “I once walked in on a friend crying in the bathroom. She had cream all over her face, hands and neck. Different products. She was about 10 years old. She was trying to wash the color of her skin away.”

At ten years old, this girl felt so ugly because of her skin color that she felt the need to apply creams.

And who convinced her of this? Not a police officer or any troll hiding behind a screen on the internet.

No. It was her own family. Her own relatives. Her own blood.

Meanwhile, in India, news anchor uses #BlackLifeMatters to do some good old dog-whistle journalism.

@Memeghnad went through the painful experience of watching this debate so you don't have to. Special mention to @KentROSystems for powering this crap.…

George Stinney Jr, di origine africana, fu la persona più giovane ad essere condannata a morte in Stati Uniti nel Ventesimo secolo. Aveva solo 14 anni quando fu giustiziato sulla sedia elettrica. Thread #blacklifematters Image
Fu accusato di aver ucciso due bambine bianche, Betty di 11 anni e Mary di 7, i cui corpi furono trovati vicino alla casa in cui l’adolescente viveva con i genitori. Image
All’epoca, tutti i membri della giuria erano bianchi. Il processo durò solo 2 ore, e la sentenza fu annunciata 10 minuti dopo.
I genitori del bambino furono minacciati e fu loro impedito l’accesso a corte, per poi essere espulsi dalla città Image

Hallo @derspiegel,

warum wollt ihr in einer Stunde mit einem Mann diskutieren, der George Floyd nach seinem Tod als kriminellen Cracksüchtigen beschimpfte und die Lüge verbreitete er sei an einer Herzattacke gestorben, weil die Polizei ihn etwas zu hart angefasst habe?
"nachdem" nicht "weil" die Polizei in zu hart angefasst habe.

Anderes Statement: "When a violent crackhead has a heart attack it‘s not „tragic“!

Es ist verantwortunglos von etablierten Medien solchen Personen eine Bühne zu bieten.

Das ist die Veranstaltung um die es geht. Zunächst waren nur Weiße eingeladen, @derspiegel hat die Kritik daran aufgenommen und dann noch @stephanpalagan eingeladen.

A few months ago my dude was looking for a tote bag to carry some things to the post office. I gave the biggest bag I had which happened to be bright pink and red. He saw the bag and immediately asked for another one. When I asked why he just insisted on a different color bag.
His insistence annoyed me and I started in on him fussing about it being sexist and homophobic, even to reject a bag based on thinking it’s too effeminate!
He let me fuss at him for a minute and then finally she said “Baby, please stop. That’s not it!”
He said “I’m a 6’3 Black man. If I’m walking down the street with a bright pink bag I could look like I stole it from a woman - which could attract police attention. I’m never trying to give these cops a reason to stop me. Ever.”
Never occurred to me.

If you are a Christian that means you're a person of freedom & justice. I want to see other ppl fighting for the justice of unarmed black men being hunted down and slaughtered.
