White People: The Middle East is so barbaric. They’ll cut off a person’s hand just for stealing!

An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“[video]

Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.

Diana Prince 

this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?

Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).

thank you for the links and correct info, leggy

If you struggle with self-care and see this, stop what you’re doing

rosecoveredtardis:

  • Have you eaten in the last 4ish hours?
  • Have you had something to drink today?
  • Can you have something, even if just milk or water or cup’o’noodles or toast with something yummy on it, if you haven’t, please? 
  • If you have any injuries, can you please take care of them for me
  • Also please take any meds if you should and haven’t, yet?

Whatever you have or haven’t done today just know you’re super strong and I am so proud of you

Okay you can go back to blogging now~ <3

In the final analysis, the term “Judeo-Christian” is nothing
less than a blatant coup d’état, a forced misappropriation onto
the face of a new religion of what rightfully belongs to a much
older one. The term “Judeo-Christian” is therefore not only an
oxymoron, it is outright sacrilegious, a dishonor to the millions
of Jews who were tortured or killed for their refusal to convert
to Christianity, and, by association, wrongfully links the Jewish
people and its ancient scriptures as accomplices to centuries of
Christian slaughter and oppression of other indigenous peoples
as well via Christianity’s sorely misguided and misapplied
interpretation of the “Old Testament.”

Gershon Winkler, The Judeo-Christian Fiction (2008) Lulu Press. (via here-lies-andalusia)

Exactly.

"Judeo-Christian"—another phrase to add the "never, ever say in discourse with Jews" list.

Why do white people own so many pets?
Because we’re not allowed to own people anymore.

What is the scariest thing about a white person in prison?
You know he did it.
*****
how many Chicago cops does it take to change a light bulb? None, they just beat the room for being black.”
*****
A good looking 50 year old white man is trying to get laid on reality TV. What show are you watching?
To catch a predator.
*****
Why do white girls travel in groups of three or five?
They can’t even
*****
What do you call 64 white people in a room? A full blooded Cherokee.

from various reddit threads

at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke.  nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.

white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response.  tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.

hoganddice:

He also stood before the pharisees and told them they were all hypocritical idiots who needed to shut up and leave people alone.He also told one of his disciples to steal a donkey for him, when asked what to do if somebody tried to prevent this theft he replied that they should tell whoever interfered that the son of god told him to do it.Jesus was not a polite, gentle man. Jesus was a fucking badass revolutionary.People need to remember that in an accurate movie about Jesus he would probably be played by Samuel L. Jackson and his dialogue would probably involve frequent use of the word Motherfucker.

i would totally go to see that movie.
