ギャル一番!ギャル最高!Tsuyameki (艶めき) is an uncommonly used word in Japanese that comes from the verb 艶めく-- which in relation to objects means to sparkle or be shiny and in relation to women means to be alluring or sexy. It's one of my favorite words in the language and I've used it to name nearly all my newer blogs and accounts the past couple years-- in response to which my husband said I couldn't have picked a more gyaru word-- And he's probably right.

the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know about the commodification of chinese women

A mini documentary on sex trafficking of Native women, with particular focus on Minnesota (Native women & girls are frequently sold on the shipping boats that travel around the Lakes, and have been for decades).

"People don’t see Native American women as humans. They see them as punching bags. Or something novel, like a new toy—it’s fun at first, but afterwards you throw it away." —Sarah El Fakahany, Sexual Assault Advocate at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center

This is very sad, I didn’t know that the Native American women and girls were part of sex trade and prostitution.

it is a very big problem, much bigger than many people realize or want to admit, even among Native communities. if you go to a truck stop anywhere near tribal communities late at night, you will see young Native girls who have been trafficked. Minnesota, Arizona, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Oregon, & Washington are particularly bad. here’s some more resources on sex trafficking of Native women:

At the peak of slavery in the US,  only 1.6% of citizens owned slaves.

on the actions of a mere 1.6%

"so you can stop basing your hate for the white race on the actions of a mere 1.6%" 

idk how accurate these numbers are but the distaste for white supremacy and institutionalized racism towards african americans from the 19th-21st century isn’t merely based on the population of people that did the actual whip cracking? and just because 1.6% of the population were actual slave owners doesn’t change the fact that the overwhelming majority of americans through their inhumane treatment paved the way for a system of oppression that is still in effect today. You’ve also conveniently left unmentioned the number of slaves in america at that time—4.5 million. 

You can’t possibly try to brush off the treatment of slaves and the dehumanization of an entire race as the actions of “a mere 1.6%”
those who are benefiting from this paved road of oppression are still responsible for combating the system, and that number is now much larger than “a mere 1.6%”

Exact.

For one thing many white people couldn’t own a slave, but renting or ‘hiring out’ a slave for a cheaper price was a common occurrence in the South. Even people who did not own plantations sought to have slaves as a source of income.(x) (x) (x)

Also, while only a small amount of the population owned a slave, a large amount supported the institution of slavery and the culture that accompanied where black slaves knew their place. The culture created laid the foundation for Jim Crow, for the anti-blackness and oppression that was to come. 

The the distrust and strong feelings aren’t based on less than 2 percent of the population because it wasn’t exclusive to them nor did it end with them.

So blatant, hurtful and disrespectful. I really wish that things like this no longer happened……..U look to have fun on a simple app and this is what you get. I hope you don’t mind me sharing this motherlymarq…….Boycott this app.

It’s because there aren’t many colors so they chose the closest one to your skin tone. Honesty I don’t get why this offends you.

You probably don’t get it because you’re a racist.

I’m not racist I’m just stating that that game doesn’t have very many colors and the darkest brown isn’t that dark and whoever drew this realized that it was closer to that fucking color.

The lengths you are going to defend blatant racism is quite embarrassing. There are actually 2 different browns available in addition to numerous color packs, but the person specifically chose black and gave her large white eyes and big read lips. THIS IS A RACIST DEPICTION OF BLACKNESS. Don’t act like this racist asshole was trying to be “accurate” by choosing black instead of brown for this disgusting drawing because there “aren’t a lot of colors”. You realize people are making legit works of art on this app but you really feel the need to speak up and play devil’s advocate for a racist? 

THIS. IS. CLEARLY. A. MINSTREL. CARTOON.

Disney’s The Jungle Book cast so far: Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Ben Kingsley as the voice of Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of Rakcha, Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Kaa and Idris Elba as the voice of Shere Khan (x x x x)

YO, THIS IS A REAL THING THAT IS HAPPENING

And not only is the cast amazing, but the film is going to be a mixture of live-action and animation (a-la Mary Poppins). Neel Seth (Mowgli),is going to be the only live-action actor and everyone else’s characters will be animated AND I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

can’t say i approve of those dreads, but i’m envious of that grim bag

white peopledreads:facepalm

Manx Sheep skull, high five!

seconded all-around

a) I don’t give two fucks what you think of my hairstyle; also you don’t know what you’re talking about;

b) It’s not a Manx sheep it’s a Jacob sheep get your fucking old world Ovidae straight you puerile little shits.

People who make cultural appropriation comments about white people with dreads are uneducated idiots. Saxons, Celts, Picts, Vikings and many other european cultures had dreadlocks centuries before rastafarian was invented. Not to mention several other races/cultures including native americans and egyptians also had dreadlocks. Plus im pretty sure no divine being came down and gave a copyright on dreadlocks or any other hairstyle to any specific group or race… also your hair looks amazing so who cares.

^ finally someone said it.

Yes, finally an uneducated person will use their ignorance to defend white dreads. It’s about time. It’s totally never happened before.

Native Americans do not have “dreadlocks”. Some southwestern native men twisted their hair into long hair rolls and stiffened them with clay and paint. Just because that looks like dreadlocks doesn’t mean they are.

Picts, Gallic, and Celtic hairstyles were absolutely not dreadlocks. There were traditions of matting, plaiting, and braiding hair. For Celtics, they were called gleebs (or glibs) which were matted and then caked with mud or clay. For Gauls, they were noted for always washing their hair in limewater to make it heavy and coarse. Again, looks like =/= actually is. Vikings were exceptionally clean and washed their hair and beards daily and used a multitude of combs and other personal grooming tools. 

White people wanna make these claims to justify their dreadlocks but yet not know the actual history of their hair. Funny how that is.

cool and relevant ppt presentation but jsyk, the term “ethnic cleansing” is a gross euphemism for “genocide”.

THIS. Thank you. This isn’t a “conflict,” this isn’t a complex issue. I was discussing it with a friend earlier - if you want to put this into perspective, view it as the modern day creation of the United States. What could only complicate this, is that it’s condoned legally and promoted through state-sponsored programs.

You’re literally the most racist piece of shit to come on here.

Subsidized housing, free medical care, etc will never compensate for rape, murder torture, theft, and cultural assimilation white people have forced on them. Especially when some of them are need that type of aid because of the legacy of imperialism.

if you want a nice body, go get it. if you want to become a lawyer, study your ass off. if you want nice hair, pick a style and get it done. stop being afraid and motivate yourself. find yourself. find your happiness, because it’s out there waiting for you.

thanks for this, I really needed the motivation! Now I have a huge selection of nice bodies to choose from in my basement, once you go out and get the first two or three the rest just seem to fall into your lap! :)
