Salut.: Benevolence in systems of oppression does not mean the system does not exist

vagabondaesthetics:

This comes up a lot. When discussing a system of oppression it will always come up, sooner or later, that someone in the oppressed group has some form of privilege over the oppressor group because a negative connotation is in some way beneficial to the group or an individual. For example, someone…

There’s nothing I could add to this to make it more perfect.

REVOLUTIONARY WOMAN OF THE DAY: Lucy Parsons (circa 1853 – March 7, 1942) was a labor organizer, socialist, and legendary orator. Lucy was of Native American, Black, and Mexican ancestry, born in Texas as a slave. She moved to Chicago where she was a key organizer in the labor movement and also participated in revolutionary activism on behalf of political prisoners, people of color, the homeless, and women. She said, “We [women] are the slaves of slaves. We are exploited more ruthlessly than men.” We salute Lucy Parsons, known by the Chicago Police Department as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters”. Know your revolutionary women’s history.

Know what’s so funny about this? How the blue-eyed White folks know this is an exercise (as in not real life!) and can’t stand taking the shit people of color deal with for a couple of hours before they’re screaming and crying and storming off. They know it’s fake, and they still can’t deal!

Yet these are the people who are supposedly so much smarter than me, so much more reasonable than me, so much more civilized than me!

She. Goes. IN on these white folks. GOES IN.

I know that some of you follow me because you occasionally learn something between my awkward personal posts. 

I’m sorry this isn’t captioned, but if you’re able to, please watch this, esp. if you’re non-POC. 

reblogging to watch when i’m done with my chores.

ahh this is awesome omg everyone needs to watch this old white lady lay it down

BEAUTIFUL.

Everyone just HAS to watch this. 

Oh wow.

This is a very important video. Some might not agree with these methods, but it is immensely powerful, and frankly, I believe it’s quite necessary.

I think this is something everyone needs to watch.
