#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

I’m embarrassed and ashamed to add myself to the list of people who where taught that the noses “fell off” as a child and never once stopped to think about how incongruous that was to everything I had been taught about the Egyptian civilizations and their propensity for lasting works of art.

On 9th August 2014, unarmed 18 year old Michael Brown was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking social unrest that continues to this day. Here is a petition to prevent police misconduct.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Y I K E S DOESN’T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THIS 

Jinkies

Somebody knock her big head ass out.

smh these hoes really need to let this skinny bitch thing go like thats hurting anyones feeling  

i dont think i could not pop somebody if they tried to make this argument in my face

yike

*yawn*

SHE IS A GREAT POINT HOLY SHIT

FASHION USES SKINNY MODELS LIKE ARTISTS USE CANVASES

HOW DARE YOU BELITTLE HER VERY VALID FEELINGS

Why are thicc/chubby/fat ppl somehow unworthy of being art bc u choose to minimize our identities and purpose to sex/sexual attraction as if we could only ever be a fetish ? And honestly if ur gonna simplify this issue in the fashion industry as art when most designers choose (generally white) skinny people to model their clothing bc they find them the most attractive/appealing and “classy” which is extremely problematic along with a long list of other issues w the fashion industry’s definitions of beauty and the behaviors (drugs/eating disorders) it encourages, and then young girls being encouraged to take interest in fashion and be exposed to that, as well as it upholding/conforming to many harmful ideals forced upon people, you really need to shut up. The standards in the fashion industry are not because of artistic choices, its very much just a tool to directly reach girls/people and instill the standards of/roles set by white supremacist patriarchy. Ur dumb to think otherwise.

There is very valid critique of Anaconda/All About That Bass besides “skinny shaming (like why our value is being defined by men’s attraction lyrically)” and i doubt anyone mad about that has ever taken a radical position against fatshaming.

I’m really over this entire conversation.

skinny women or represented everywhere

and validated everywhere

you don’t have to flip through pages of a magagizine hoping to see one. You don’t go to stores and hope they even carry your size. 

It’s there. 

people aren’t using bullshit reasons to over charge your for clothing

no one is offering you tips to gain weight any time you say you are unhappy with your appearance

the health department is not determined being thin is an epidemic that causes myraid of health problems.

no one is afraid to hug you or share space with you because you are thin.

really and seriously thin people, shut the hell up. so what someone came for you in one song? Fat people have been getting come for if not ignored completely for ever.

Sidenote. thickness is a trend now. But about 20 years ago no one was checking for them either. So this whole “curvy girls get love thing” y’all can miss me with. It’s a fad for y’all (espeically white folks) and it’s only because rappers talk about it so much.

Let them know of the cultural differences of those that they will be working with. I.E non black people have a tendency to snitch about everything in life.

When it first happened to me my feelings were hurt. I was devastated. I thought my white co workers were my friends. I didn’t know that they will literally cc and bcc anything you do that they don’t like.

Let you kids know and save them the devastation.

truth!!! Experience that myself, smile in your face but quick to run & tell whenever you f up & cc’d the boss about E V E R Y T H I N G

Hope this is true. It should be cancelled really

Hire some damn folk who actually know how to handle black culture without putting other black people (black children) down.

How about we just get BET out of Viacom’s hands and put it back into the hands of Black people who know what the fuck Black culture is about. Bring back Rap City and the Youth News Groups and other social awareness campaigns that were combined with music and culture.

^^This. And if they would grow the fuck up and add even a little variety in their programming, it would be so much better. 

I haven’t watched BET in years.
I hasn’t been shit  since 106 n Park launched.

MJ got that real nigga dap lol

The baddest man around

MJ was a real nigga, though.

MJ is from Gary goddamn Indiana. I’ll put money on him being able to throw them hands on the low.

You know Joe wasn’t about to raise no punks letting other people push them around. Joe looks like the type of daddy to say “either you fight him or you fight me.”


I think he was ^
