Stains were a patchwork of mistakes you couldn’t get rid of. They showed the world your real self, even the parts you didn’t want it to see.

So many men have internalized the lie that they have uncontrollable sex drives, and no way to control their anger. They aren’t ashamed of their abusive behavior because they see it as a something natural to them and maybe even central to their masculinity. It’s scary as hell.

Holocaust survivors and their descendants accuse Israel of ‘genocide’ 
More than 300 Holocaust survivors and their descendants have condemned what they described as Israel’s ‘genocide of Palestinian people’ in an advert in the New York Times
Aug. 24 2014

Dozens of Holocaust survivors, together with hundreds of descendants of Holocaust survivors and victims, have accused Israel of “genocide” for the deaths of more than 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza since the conflict erupted in July.


In an open letter released by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and published as an advert in The New York Times, the group calls for a full economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel over its “wholesale effort to destroy Gaza”.
“Genocide begins with the silence of the world,” the statement reads, “We must raise our collective voices and use our collective power to bring about an end to all forms of racism, including the ongoing genocide of Palestinian people.”
The statement also condemns the United States for its financial and diplomatic support of Israel.
The signatories express alarm at “the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever pitch.”
This condemnation was designed as a response to a widely-published advertisement from Nobel prize-winning author Elie Wiesel that condemned Hamas for its “use of children as human shields”.
The statement reads: “We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel’s abuse of our history […] to justify the unjustifiable.”
Of the 327 signatories, 40 survived the Holocaust and the other 287 are descendants of Holocaust survivors or victims.
Recent today reports refer to the destruction of an high rise office building in the southern town of Rafah, and the bombing of an apartment building in Gaza City amid attempts from the Egyptian government to establish a durable ceasefire.
More than 2,100 Palestinians, including 500 children have been killed in the conflict, according to Palestinian health officials and UN figures. Israel has lost 64 soldiers and four civilians.

According to your criteria, I’m not African

yo anon, fuck off with your bullshit. you have no goddamn place to tell someone what race/ethnicity/etc someone is.

haha what? if you wanna talk about people being mixed, why don’t we say that europeans are mutated africans. after all, the first humans came from east africa. but besides: europeans are just as mixed. if you have fuller lips, curly hair or a flat/small nose I’ll claim that your ancestors got mixed with africans. which makes you potentially not purely european. ka-ching. (which you would think is stupid, right?). and then again (to bring even more stuff into this) europeans are not the only people who can have fair skin. that occurs among all races. just as blue and green eyes or straight hair. thus your skin/eye colour, face are not determinential of your race but you see, I’m assuming again, ain’t I? because you might be a poc, as by far not all british people are white. and that btw is a big problem I personally have with tumblr, 1.assuming people’s race by judging where they are coming from (europe has many inhabitants who are poc, white expats might be livign anywhere from iran to kenya and from japan to chile), 2. dividing the world into people of colour and white people as if that is a straight line. but come one, look at eastern europe, south africa or any area that has been colonialized: you’ll find not only ‘recently’ mixed people but a lot of people who just are ‘in between’ and let me tell you that being white passing/not white enough yet not ‘coloured’ enough isn’t a cake either. sure the ‘real’ poc have it much harder, because they are being singled out much faster because of their looks, but if you’re not really either, then you’ll end up not being wanted by either ‘team’ and that sucks. please note I’m not here to diminish the struggle of poc! just wanted to add this, as it often gets overlooked/forgotten and the binary that is often made on tumblr is a pain in the ass.

Did you know many African countries continue to pay colonial tax to France since their independence till today and They are obliged by France to put all they money into French central bank under French minister of Finance control It’s such an evil system even denounced by the European Union but France is not ready to move from that colonial system which puts about 500 billions dollars from Africa to its treasury every year Take the Example of Togo After the independence of the country, France asked the small and poor country to pay for the benefit they’ve got from french colonisation The reimbursement of that so called “colonial debt” was close to 40% of the country budget in 1963 and Till today, 2013, Togo and about 20 other African countries still have to pay colonial debt to France African leaders who refuse are killed and During the last 50 years 45 coup were committed in Africa by French mercenaries and proxies
