86 years ago today (1927) Gutzon Borglum began defacing the sacred BlackHills with Mt. Rushmore.

Everyone must remember that “Mt. Rushmore” (the Black Hills) does not legally belong to the federal government, and especially not to South Dakota.  It was acknowledged as belonging to the sovereign Lakota Nation in the Sioux Treaty of 1868.  The federal government STOLE the Hills from the Lakota, breaking the law they wrote with their own hands!  The US is a repeat criminal but no one holds them accountable!

never fucking forget.

The Problem With Little White Girls (and Boys): Why I Stopped Being A Voluntourist  →

gurlgoestoafrica:

In case you’re interested in hearing from a reformed Gurl - here’s Pippa Biddle’s experience. Worth a read.

White people aren’t told that the color of their skin is a problem very often. We sail through police check points, don’t garner sideways glances in affluent neighborhoods, and are…

Drunk text me. Text me when the music is loud and there are girls dancing around you and you’re not quite coherent and you’re not quite yourself. Drunk text me that you love me or that you miss me or that I’m on your mind. Let the alcohol tell me all the things you won’t say sober.

Ferguson residents return for another day of protesting to find that overnight the police had ripped up their signs and threw them in the dumpster.

This is an apology letter.

I’m sorry for bumming so many cigarettes from you.

I’m sorry for keeping you up that one night when I had that essay.

I’m sorry for kissing you.

for sending you nine mean texts in…

Even though John Crawford III was only holding a BB gun he picked up—IN A STORE THAT SELLS BB GUNS. Even though it was an open carry state. Even though he was on the phone when police officers opened fire on him. Even though he was shot in the back. Even though the cops lied and were caught in a lie because of the subsequent video. A grand jury who, when added together, obviously didn’t have half a gnat’s brain, declined to indict the officers.  The message here?  It has been, is, and always will be open season on black people for as long as white supremacy is the philosophie du jour. 
(H/T Chad Goller-Sojourner)

Don’t even feel that surprised.
I am numb.
And that’s perhaps the worst part- that these kinds of injustices feel common and expected. Smh.

I cannot be tolerant of white people anymore. I tried. I’m not sorry. In lieu of this, fuck you white people. And yeah I know you “didn’t ask to be born white”

(9.23.14) — Another morning in Amerikkka. Somebody thought it would be fun to desecrate the Mike Brown Memorial early this morning. I… I really can’t even. #staywoke #farfromover

Here’s a picture of some cops watching the memorial burn although there seemed to be no police at the scene when the fire department arrived.

weirdtrip said: I did report her and she was sent home instantly. Thank you for your concern!

Sounds silly to say, but that was really brave of you! I’m Indian and I rarely have the courage to speak up about things like that when they happen to me
