THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.

the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die

it’s just like so weird cause a lot of tumblrisms are clearly stemmed from aave and then killed by non-black POC & white people hence their constant misuse and eventual overuse, until black people come up w more terms to use 

terms like

  • basic
  • prayer circle
  • thirst/thirsty/the thirst
  • (example) game on point
  • (example) game strong
  • slay
  • shade
  • bruh
  • hunty
  • bae
  • stay in [pronoun] lane

etc etc etc

stop usin aave just because you learned it on tumblr

you’re still not entitled to it and you’re especially not if you just use it to seem hip and cool and funny

cause what it boils down to is that you don’t use it for expression and you were not raised to speak like that, nor do you live around people who speak like that— you just use it to be funny in front of your friends and that’s the thing I don’t like

this is a good post and im going to go ahead and add that the very popular word fuckboy is aave and existed pre tumblr in the black community stop using it

Cis people need to stay the fuck out of trans conversations that are about internal issues in the community. In fact, they need to bar themselves from ANY conversation about trans people that trans people are having. It’s great if you want to call out other cis people on their transmisogyny and transphobia, but don’t you fucking dare rear your ugly little head into a discussion about trans people meant for fucking trans people.

You as a cis person do not get to decide who the fuck is trans and who isn’t. I honestly don’t even give a fly fuck if you’re pushing truscum, tucute, or non-truscum ideals. I don’t give a fuck if you’re even agreeing with me on an issue—you shouldn’t even be opening your god damn mouth.

You as a cis person do not get to decide which members of the community have it worse, whether it be trans men trans women or non binary folk. You’re a fucking cis person, you’re one of the reasons why our ENTIRE FUCKING COMMUNITY GETS PICKED OFF ONE BY ONE AND MURDERED LIKE VULTURES SNACKING ON CARRION.

You as a cis person do not get to say which pronouns are valid and which are not. You’re a fucking cis person, your community has been devaluing mine constantly, your community has always be dictating the proper behavior of mine, your community has always been pronouns policing, gender policing, and actually policing my community for the longest fucking time. You. Don’t. Get. To. Say. Shit.

You as a cis person do not get to question and control how we identify. I don’t give a fuck if someone uses nounself pronouns and that pisses you off or if you’re debaiting how great nounself pronouns with a trans person, you do not get a say in how that person identifies. I don’t care if that trans person has dysphoria or not—you are not the judge, you will never be the judge.

You’re a fucking cis person for Christ’s sake. Not sorry to say it, but you opinion literally means shit to me and my community. I love some of you so dearly, friends and family, fellow peers and celebrities, but jesus. So sit down and listen, ask questions in a respectful manner if you have them, and for the love of god don’t interrupt a trans person, don’t talk over a trans person, never interject on a discussion about trans people being had by trans people.

Why don’t most superheroines look like this?

Because most comic books are drawn by men.

Reblogging for artistic reference.

Yes. Artistic reference is why I am reblogging this.

This is why I hate it when people draw the likes of Wonder Woman or Power Girl or She-Hulk without making them muscular because ‘that’s not feminine’. Because clearly, you know, it bloody well is.

Totally reblogging for the artistic reference. Definitely.

artistic reference my ass i’m reblogging this because she’s fucking beautiful and her body is inspiring. also she so cute
