have you ever noticed that when someone makes a post or a comment about how white men suck, the white men who respond angrily are not only offended, but shocked.
shocked that anyone would make a sweeping generalization about a group of people. shocked that they would be judged for something that they can’t control.
because they have no idea what it’s like to hear that kind of stuff about oneself every single day, both blatantly and subtly.
Another NYC billboard…
This one is messed up!
It IS messed up that that billboard is stating a FACT. The fact that over one half of all African American pregnancies end in abortion. The fact that 80+% of abortion mills are in minority neighborhoods.
It IS messed up.
And yet WE are the racist ones.
yes, you are the racist ones.
where are you after those brown babies are born? do you speak up when they’re hunted down and beaten by the police? do you speak up against a system that systematically works to oppress them, making the decision to have a child so much harder because having a child is so much more than giving birth? are you going to help pay for their healthcare? schooling? housing? food? Where are you when it comes to discussing why the fuck is the system made so that PoC have less access to a better education, financial aid, work etc.
Don’t pretend to care about brown babies when they’re beaten and killed every day and you people are no where to be found.
Racist piece of shit.

reblogging for that paragraph ^^
A few years ago, I read an article where the mother of this child was actually upset at how her daughter’s photo was used.
Reminder that the claim that 80% of abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods is a complete and utter lie propagated by anti-choicers. The real percentage of abortion clinics located in predominantly black neighborhoods is 9%.
63% are located near neighborhoods that are made up of mostly non-hispanic white people. [x]
But of course instead of maybe taking a look at the reason many PoC seek out abortions, anti-choicers would rather make up statistics and cry “I’m not racist! Pro-choicers are racist because they let PoC make their own decisions!”
(I also love that these kinds of statements come straight from people who will appropriate tragedies like slavery, genocide, or the murder of PoC and pretend they’re equivalent to abortion. So not racist.)
Reblogging for commentary
Mary Brandon was attending England’s popular Notting Hill Carnival, billed as the largest street festival in Europe, when she claims she was repeatedly groped from behind by a random man in the crowd. According to her Facebook page, where she reported the exchange, she told the man to stop. He refused. “I pushed him away, exercising my right to tell a man to stop touching my body without my permission, so he took a swing at me and punched me in the face,” she wrote.
Yeah it’s pretty fucked up how people don’t realize that ideas like oh he doesn’t speak English well = he’s stupid are inherently racist and were pioneered by racists to ensure separation in academic and professional fields. The way you speak English will never be an indicator of your intelligence ever
Your white (neo)liberal western feminism in action
"Because capitalism is inherently racist, police departments everywhere serve at the behest of corporate sponsored governments — that is, in protective service of white supremacist private corporate power. As an institution police departments operate as state sanctioned gangs employed to uphold the violent, racist hierarchy of capitalism and, whenever possible, to further the monopoly of power where all violence from/by those higher on the hierarchy upon those lower can be legalized and normalized. Any deviation from this narrative, any counterviolence — or even the threat of force — by those lower on the hierarchy upon those higher is met with brutal repression. This is why cops are always present at protests. It is not to “keep the peace.” It is to protect the private property/interests of corporate power, the owners of US government, and to maintain at all times the explicit reminder of America’s power hierarchy, meaning, inevitably, black and brown people’s brutalization above all others. Such will always be the primary function of police no matter who we elect — Democrat or Republican — so long as the cement between private corporate power and government remains un-fractured. Thus we know, all cops may not be racist, but all cops replicate/enforce white supremacist, capitalist oppression."
