He must be getting paid by Israel.

Once again, Caucasian does not mean white, and using it to mean white is actually racist.

There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.

THANK YOU. Don’t call me white & don’t equate my people to whiteness.

well my personal question if i were so bold would be what do they pass as and act like once they get to the U.S. but y’all know i dont like to cause trouble

(via so-treu)

I know this is a rhetorical question and you likely already know the answer, as would anyone not suffering from serious denial, but the vast majority of literal Caucasians would be considered phenotypically white in the U.S. and the ones who wouldn’t would probably be mistaken for some other ethnicity and potentially oppressed on that basis as opposed to their actual ethnicity… I’d also say that even outside of the U.S., most would identify as white and align themselves with whiteness. Like I don’t have any studies to back this up, I just have some Armenians/Georgians in my family, etc.

Idk there’s probably a lot more to this but the whole Caucasians are not white thing is just…..incorrect in many ways. They’re white in Russia (the main place they’re oppressed) too, they’re just seen as an inferior type of white.

zerogoukki asked: ok sorry for sending you like 50 messages on the topic, but i feel as someone who has done really extensive reading it's kinda my responsibility to educate. anyhow, it seems like you're falling for this illusion that this is hamas vs. the israeli government. it's not. this is israel trying to destroy the palestinian people completely. hamas is the perfect scapegoat for the israeli government when palestinians are literally being ethnically cleansed. this ceasefire is not a cease-cleansing.

Why does Israel want to ethnically cleanse Palestine?

For undisputed access to their land

And tbh if they succeed they will keep expanding and do it again

In addition to land, Israel wants to be a Jewish state which is kind of hard for them with so much of the indigenous Palestinian population still being around. Like Zionism literally calls for it.

"A racist woman is not a feminist; she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can.

A transphobic woman is not a feminist; she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others.

A woman against reproductive rights — to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist; she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others.

An ableist woman is not a feminist; she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it."

Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.

Did Igbohistory quote the person who actually wrote this? As I read this, I had the feeling that I’d read the exact words before and not from Igbohistory. In fact I believe that I shared a link to the original essay on my tumblr years ago but I can’t find it now, I will sha…

I was taught this in my African History class, and since then i stopped referring to my people (Yoruba) and other ethic groups of Africa and the world as tribes. This large groups of people are nations with strong rich history and deserve to be respected as such. 

i do hope that igbohistory doesn’t claim that this is their own work, and they simply forgot to cite where the information comes from. 

I updated! I made a mistake pls, it was very similar to another essay I’d read but not the same.

I BEEN saying this, YES.

'Tribe' is a white anthropological word meant to diminish.
