Before the Brazil World Cup it is needed to clean up the area.
Today, Jan 9th 2014, people of a slum are expelled under police brutality.
All the efforts to build a subway line.
Nobody cares about them.
Where do they go?
They are not our problem, answer the government.
- Jim Wendler, Beyond 5/3/1 (via finding—sisu)
Imagine you’re a young white guy facing capital murder charges where you can receive the death penalty… the victim in the case is a black man… when you go to trial and step into the courtroom… the judge is a black man… the two State prosecutors seeking the death penalty on you… are also black men… you couldn’t afford an attorney, so the Judge appointed you two defense lawyers who are also black men… you look in the jury box… there’s 8 more black people and 4 hispanics… the only white person in the courtroom is you… How would you feel facing the death penalty? Do you believe you’ll receive justice?
As outside of the box as that scene is, those were the exact circumstances of my trial. I was the only black person in the courtroom."
"They rap but they don’t know what true rap is."
"They play rock, but they don’t know how to rock.”
"They’re funny when they don’t talk about being ___."
Always with the unnecessary commentary.
"The thrill of appropriation lies in accessing the perceived authenticity… Transfer to a white body elevates the action. It’s no longer primitive because while nonwhite culture is assumed to be rooted in instinct, white culture is one of intent… White people clamoring to up their cred by appropriating nonwhite culture do so hoping to be rewarded for choices that are falsely seen as inherent in people of color." —Ayesha Siddiqi
I’m sorry about this. Nobody who’s of one ethnicity should ever be allowed to enjoy things created by people of other ethnicities. Nobody who isn’t Asian is allowed to use paper any more. Nobody who is not Native American may eat corn or potatoes. You only get to do something if it was created by the ethnicity which you belong to, otherwise you’re just appropriating it and can’t possibly understand it.

I love how when people point out how white people should stop:
- claiming credit to have invented shit other people created
- only celebrating cultural practices when white people are involved while excluding the people who created it
- redefine cultural practices over the voices of the people who create them
- redefine cultural practices incorrectly, out of ignorance
….that white people assume the ONLY POSSIBLE SOLUTION is to never use them. That is to say, given the option of listening to, respecting, and giving credit to originators is so fucking impossible for them, that the only answer is that no one could use anything.
"how is that racist?"- white proverb
You cannot say that you like Pocahontas. The genocide of my people is turned into a cartoon musical with a singing raccoon.
Then shown to children around the world. Thus ensuring the next generation remains relatively indifferent to the past and present conditions of indigenous people.
