It realy bothers me when blogs about Mexican culture like to put up pictures of Mexican ‘beauties’ but more than half the time they are white looking Latinas.

aztec-princesss:

did you know that Mexico is

So you’re basically saying only Mexican women who have white features are worthy of being called beautiful and of representation.

…but Black people are animals for rioting and looting after the shooting of an unarmed teenager. Here, we see a few law abiding citizens turning the FVCK up over a hockey game and millions of dollars worth of damages…but that’s none of my…naw…SEE THIS MESS for what it is.
Black people in Ferguson are being called animals and white people who riot after hockey games are called FANATICS… Wake Up.

Everything they teach about Egypt in most schools is distorted. The people of Egypt called their country Kemet not Egypt. Kemet means black land. Egypt is a Greek concept. Egypt is derived from the Greek word Aegyptos. The greeks called the kemetians  language hieroglyphs, but the people of Kemet called their language Medu Neter. Even the names we learn of the gods are wrong. Isis Kemetic name is Aset. Anubis is Anpu. Horus is Heru. Osiris is Wesir. I’m doing research to find as many of the true Kemetic  names that I can. 


i posted this 4 months ago and it has gotten over a 1,000 reblogs…So i’m sendin it back into rotation. Power of knowledge !!

The Greeks also messed up when they interpreted the religious system. The worship of one God in many forms is the deal. Not multiple Gods. They did not worship the Sun, it was the manifestation of God in the sun, the water, the moon ect. What each element represented.

Commander Vimes didn’t like the phrase ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’, believing the innocent had everything to fear, mostly from the guilty but in the longer term even more from those who say things like ‘The innocent have nothing to fear’.

ferguson rly teaches a lesson in the lengths police will go to protect each other and white supremacy. they’d rather do all this than arrest one man. 

because he is a cop, and he’s white.

they ‘have each other’s backs’ so doggedly and determinedly that they would sacrifice a town of black people for one white cop

A police officer in Georgia admits to kicking an African-American woman in the stomach while she was 9 months pregnant. No charges were filed against the officer.

Raven Dozier was 9 months pregnant when Dekalb County police officer Jared Wheeler kicked her in the stomach with his boots. She was forced to get a c-section. Thankfully, the baby survived. In an “internal investigation” Dekalb County police found that officer Wheeler did nothing wrong and followed police procedure.

And he’s completely unapologetic about it as well and no justice was served. People need to realize that police brutality is literally a daily reality for black people and that it affects black women as well.

13 days later and it’s still blank

After two weeks of protests and a violent police crackdown, officials in Ferguson, Mo., have finally released the incident report detailing Michael Brown’s murder.

Why did delivering 2 blank pieces of paper take so long?

Carlota was an enslaved woman who, along with three others, lead the 1843 slave revolt at the Triumvirato sugar mill in Matanzas province, Cuba, which spread to the Arcana mill near by. 

Matanzas was the site of many uprisings during the year of 1843. Carlota and other members of the revolts went from one sugar plantation to another in the province to liberate other enslaved Africans from July to August. By November of 1843, full scale rebellion broke out. 

The enslaved Africans revolting used “talking” drums to spread news of rebellion, relay messages, and to recruit more members for their liberation efforts. Two enslaved Africans at the Arcana mill - a man named Evaristo, and a woman named Fermina - worked to spread Carlota’s rebellion efforts to their enslaved companions. Fermina and Evaristo were eventually arrested and chained. 

On November 3rd, 1843 Carlota traveled to Arcana to liberate Fermina and Evaristo along with the other slaves at the mill. 

Carlota’s careful planning and guerilla tactics inspired other rebellion movements by Africans in the Matanzas region. Carlota participated in revolts in the areas of Sabanilla del Encomendador, Guanábana, Santa Ana and also at the San Miguel, Concepción, San Lorenzo and San Rafael sugar plantations. Enslaved Africans working coffee plantations and cattle estates were also assisted by Carlota in their liberation attempts. 

1844 became known as the “Year of the Lashes” as repression efforts from the Governor of Cuba Leopoldo O’Donnell ended in the execution of black revolters including Fermina, and Carlota. Fermina was shot in March of 1844 along with other enslaved Africans. Carlota was drawn and quartered; she was tied to horses that were sent in opposite directions to completely dismember her body. 

A monument to Carlota and the rebellion she lead was erected on the spot of the Triumvirato sugar mill in Matanzas.
