This is messed up.
A mother found out that her twin sons—one of whom is blind and has autism, the other of whom is wheelchair-bound from cerebral palsy—were being seriously abused by their father and his girlfriend. When she refused to let her sons go back to that abusive home, a warrant went out for her arrest. Now, she needs your help.
It’s important to note that Audre’y Eby is Rosebud Sioux, while her ex and the ex’s girlfriend, who are accused of the abuse, are white. In other words, there is a near certainty that race is a factor in all this.

gangstajonah asked: I agree with what you say about how people shouldn't just like a race based solely on the fact of the unrealistic beauty they show in the media. There are good looking people of all races and also not so good looking in all races but is it fetishizing if you prefer a certain race because you like their features knowing that not all of them look like some beautiful godly person? Is it wrong to have a preference in what type of person you like not just in personality but in looks as well?
fetishization isn’t based on just features though, plus it’s wrong to assume all people of a certain country have the same look. i look a lot different from my korean friends, but to fetishizing guys we’ve met, we’re interchangeable. it’s dehumanizing. not to mention race is a social construct and if we’re going to apply the limited social construct of race onto asians, asia is a vast place and malaysian people look different from chinese people and chinese people look different from vietnamese people.
fetishization isn’t just about a harmless preference. it’s about projecting your desires and preconceived notion onto a person based on their heritage.

Anonymous asked: I don't understand that ask that you reblogged because at first it was "Europe makes white man go everywhere" and then at the end its "Africa is nothing without the colonization or Africa" like... how do you get an ask like that wth
Yeah I don’t know I’m literally amazed that there are people in this world who actually believe in that fictional line of history.
Anonymous asked: Can you explain why Europeans were much more technologically advanced than the indigenous populations of Africa? I mean, these cultures hadn't even invented sewage systems, which is something the Romans were able to design and implement in 800-735 BC (a long fucking time before "the white man" colonized it)... I mean fuck, without "the white man", they would probably still be in the fucking bronze age.
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
Your magical (read: white supremacist) idea of a purely 'white' Rome never existed.
The Minoan culture on the island of Crete between 1500-1700 B.C.E. had a highly developed waste management system. They had very advanced plumbing and designed places to dispose of organic wastes. Knossos, the capital city, had a central courtyard with baths that were filled and emptied using terra-cotta pipes. This piping system is similar to techniques used today. They had large sewers built of stone.”
In case you needed further clarification, neither the Minoans nor other (later) Greeks were ethnically uniform. They also had the first flush toilets, dating back to 18th century B.C.E. They had flushing toilets, with wooden seats and an overhead reservoir. The Minoan royals were the last group to use flushing toilets until the re-development of that technology in 1596.
Oh, and look the Mayans had indoor plumbing, acqueducts, and pressurized water too. I mean, you can ignore that the area Mayans lived in had little to few rivers, no lakes or standing water, nor other sources of running water, while simultaneously dealing with monsoons and flooding due to one of the heaviest yearly rainfalls in the Americas.
Classic Maya even used household water filters using locally abundant limestone carved into a porous cylinder, made so as to work in a manner strikingly similar to modern ceramic water filters.
Of course, by this time millenia later none of your precious “white people” had developed any methods besides shitting in pots.Continuing, the earliest archaeological record of an advanced system of drainage comes from the Indus Valley Civilization from around 3100 B.C.E in what is now Pakistan and North India. By 2500 B.C.E (almost 5,000 years ago), highly developed drainage system where wastewater from each house flowed into the main drain.All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.It was made from bricks smoothened and joined together seamlessly. The expert masonry kept the sewer watertight. Drops at regular intervals acted like an automatic cleaning device.
Filters for solid waste.Sorry, what were the British doing up until like, 200 years ago? Shitting in the streets? Oh yeah.I mean, I could get into how by the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600 B.C.E.), China had sophisticated plumbing including pressure inverted siphons.
Or into the city of Amarna, Ancient Egypt. Or Persepolis, Persia and the Achaemenids in 600 B.C.E.But, I mean, it sounds like the only one still in the Bronze Age is you.
I love it when people bring facts to white supremacist logic.
