Australia’s history of racism towards Aboriginals is absolutely disgusting.
Until the mid-60s, indigenous Australians came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an indigenous Australian meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.
To this day, Australia breaks every code of the Geneva Convention when it comes to indigenous Australians and their human rights. The “public housing” that the government has given them are one-bedroom shacks with no running water, no electricity and no gas, that entire families are forced to live in. These shacks are in communities in the outback, as far away from “civilised” society as possible. Out of sight, out of mind.
Indigenous Australians that live in the city are commonly forced to live in very dangerous and derelict areas that the government gives very little funding towards. Redfern in Sydney is a highly indigenous Australian populated suburb that is rife with crime, unemployment and horrendous living conditions. The government does next to nothing to help these people, either.
Whenever riots have broken out as a result of incredibly low morale, the police and the government are very quick to point all the blame at the indigenous Australians and say that they are the cause of their own problems, rather than looking at what the actual cause is.
Unemployment rates amongst indigenous Australians is astronomical. Crime rates are astronomical. Suicide rates are extremely high within the indigenous Australian community. Death from inadequate living conditions and inadequate health care is common. Brutality towards indigenous Australians is common.
The way many indigenous Australians are forced to live is equivalent to that of what one would expect from a third-world country. Indigenous Australians are considered by the UN to be one of the most horrendously marginalised groups in the world.
And how does the government amend all of this? With a national “Sorry Day”, where white people plant a hand in some designated area of soil as a token of their white guilt, and then continue going about their white privileged day.
On top of that, white people here commonly bitch and complain about how “good” indigenous Australians have it and how “thankful” they ought to be to the white man for improving their quality of life. Meanwhile, indigenous Australians have lost almost all sense of identity and culture because of white colonisation.
What is left of Aboriginal identity and culture has been nearly completely destroyed. And most people in this disgustingly privileged country do not give a single god damn fuck.
Australia is a disgusting country when it comes to racism. I am disgusted by my own country.
This story, although sad, sounds all to familiar.
El 6 de diciembre de 1914 las tropas comandandas por Francisco Villa y Emiliano Zapata llegan a la Ciudad de México. Son ovacionados por la población mientras desfilan frente a Palacio Nacional; el presidente provisional Gral.Eulalio Gutiérrez ofrece un banquete para recibirlos.

BUT WAIT THOUGH.
how you gonna put rihanna in between miley cyrus and justin timberlake??
especially when the clip of rihanna in question is her video for pour it up, where there are LITERALLY NO MEN IN THE VIDEO? even the dollar bills she throws have her face on them?????
how are you gonna include rihanna for twerking, but exclude selena gomez for shitting on desi women, brooke candy and iggy azealia for appropriating black culture, lily allen for demonizing women of color (which in the clip you showed of miley, she was doing? she was smacking the ass of a dancer of color)
white feminists are so quick to shout OPPRESSION OF WOMEN! when their fellow woman is being “slut-shamed” (can we just not use that term anymore? high school is over. lets cut the cutesy bs and call it what it is: misogyny) but continually ignore their own racism (and more often than not cissexism/transphobia — we’re not gonna talk about how rad it is to see a transwoman playing a transwoman? oh wait she’s not a part of your shitty white cis club so who cares???)
we can criticize rihanna about many things, but her twerking in her music video is LAST thing we should be talking about — especially when rihanna isn’t “objectifying herself” nor is she catering to any male gaze nor appropriating black culture (because i mean helloooo she’s black??)
ugh white feminists i stfg

This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
She told it how it is, perfectly.
