It’s cold out there today. Are you fighting off the cold with some Vitamin C? Today’s post talks about some curious propaganda posters and advertisements during the Second World War from the Florida Citrus Commission that featured the U.S. Navy.

    yoisthisracist:

    Don’t you love it when racists write in with their weak-ass, patronizing sarcasm and think they can successfully accuse me of being racist against white people? Don’t worry, I got, like, one white friend at least, they said it was all good.

    PS. Fuck off, seriously.

Australia.

The sad thing is, this has been going on for ages.

My grandpa was telling me that his family were spat at on the street and called “Fucking Dirty Wogs” and “To go back where they came from” because they came here from Italy. My dad was beaten up at school for being a “Wog” and then he was the only one who got in trouble with the teacher. I was bullied relentlessly at school for being a ” Fat Wog” as well, and this was like  a few years ago by some stupid fucks who think they were so fucking smart.

And now that hatred as moved onto the Asylum Seekers again (you’d be pretty fucking ashamed of Australia in 2001-2003 after the 9/11 attacks) and even before that in Geelong the Sudanese community was treated like shit simply for being refugees.

Its a cycle of viciousness and the Government only encourages the behavior. It needs to stop now.

Never realize there was this dark side to Australia.

That’s horrendous.

My eldest paternal first cousin is Australian. He called me a “fat nigger” when I messaged him on Facebook asking how he was. We are no longer in touch. He lives on the other side of the world so it hasn’t caused any family drama but I really hope he never visits again. I’m glad that my Gran never found out, I think it would’ve probably killed her.

The thing that really amazes me about racism in Australia is how open and shameless people are about it. New Zealand has its own fair share of racism, but I feel like we’re a little more embarrassed by it.

Australia: we are a country AND ALSO an entire continent but “fuck off we’re full”

not even racist Japan has used that line against immigrants, and this is one crowded archipelago

Chick-fil-A Uses ‘Tomahawk Chop’ to Profit off Racism Perpetuated by Native Mascots, By Danielle Miller

If you didn’t already boycott Chick-fil-A for their anti gay statements now you may have even more of a reason for their racism against Native Americans. Chick-Fil-A created a giant robotic cow (40 feet high and 15,000 pounds) next to a giant coke bottle with a picture of a tomahawk. The cow’s arm moves to do the “tomahawk dance” but it looks more like a nazi gesture. A simple search on google shows plenty of pictures and videos of the cow; it wears signs with different messages such as:  “Chopping makes hungree 4 chikin” “Chop on chikin luverz chop on” “Chop burgerz outta yer diet”.

Chick-fil-A is a company that has proudly presented its Christian values.  Chick-fil-A’s tomahawk cow is highly problematic when you consider the history of religious violence Christianity has had with Native Americans, the attempted termination of Native American cultures, as well as attempted extermination of Native Americans was committed in the name of Christianity.

This modern perpetuation of stereotypes continues to be an act of cultural conquest as well as a strategy to dehumanize Native Americans to justify other acts of economic conquest. Native mascots, as well as dances like the tomahawk chant, continue to contribute to these issues and do nothing but perpetuate ignorance and racism.

I do not even want to entertain the “honor” argument on this issue, but it will be addressed since that is the most frequent excuse for racism against natives in sports. In no way do I see how the tomahawk chant could be an honor to Natives. It references the history of scalping and perpetuates false savage stereotypes. The act of even perpetuating stereotypes, and such a graphic dance and chant, is primitive and beyond disrespectful.

The fact that children are witnessing these atrocities is unacceptable.  Fake tomahawks are being sold at games. What a way to market racism and violence to children and sports fans.

apparently this cow has been in Turner Field for years, so even before Chick-fil-A’s homophobia became an issue this should have been a red flag

moot for me (no Chick-fil-A in Japan) but never eat there. Ever.

Jew throwing wine over a helpless palestinian muslimah

Look who the real terrorists are!

Don’t they ever think that this is what happened to them a while back let alone for centuries throughout history. You’d think they would have a bit of empathy.

The streets were mostly empty. I stopped to photograph some settlers marking the Jewish holiday of Purim. They were passing around a bottle of wine, toasting the holiday, nothing out of the ordinary. I noticed a Palestinian woman walking along the shut-down stores. A group of settlers were walking in the middle of the street in the opposite direction when one of them took a step towards her. I instinctually raised the camera.

She didn’t scream or stop, she hurried up the street and vanished around the corner. I was left angered and saddened — as if the wine hit me.”

Via The New York Times

I hope to see the day that Palestinians can live in peace and build a real country. Mandela freed South Africa from apartheid, but the world continues to accept the apartheid inflicted on the Palestinian people every day.

For anyone who doesn’t know, wine is a drink that is forbidden by the Quran because it intoxicates people(to the best of my knowledge, someone who is actually Muslim could probably explain the subtleties better.). So this is a really dick move.

That is correct, anything that intoxicates is forbidden for Muslims.

Hey Tumblr, let’s talk a bit about anti-Semitisim vs anti-Zionism, since there appears to be some confusion on this network.

Criticizing Israel’s government/policies/etc is anti-Zionism. It’s OK. I’m not a Zionist myself because I remember what my Jewish relatives and ancestors have gone through, and repressing other peoples is very uncool.

Anti-Zionism criticizes politics, not a people. Same as I might not agree with how the Chinese government deals with Tibet, but I don’t automatically assume every Chinese person is on board with the occupation - something Tumblr is very bad at doing re: Jews (assuming we all are Zionists).

Anti-Semitisim is using the word “Jew” as an all-encompassing label like the OP did. “Look at this Jew.” Not “Look at this Zionist” or “Look at this Israeli.” Just Jew.

And most Jews would find this abhorrent, like I do. That whole area of the world is fucked up, and I don’t feel much affection towards it. Muslims and Jews are literally from the same blood, and I see no value in oppressing a cousin. But hey, if Ireland sort of got its shit together, we can too.

However it’s time for Tumblr to realize not all Jews are on the same page re: Israel, and “Jew” can be a harmful slur in the right (wrong?) circumstances.
