White Americans have a criminal history; they have a criminal nation. The nation is built on criminality and murder and exploitation. It is a part of their collectible psyche. The United States is a mafia government. No one has done more damage and degradation and murder, rape, and robbery than Europeans. Therefore, in order to escape confrontation with their true criminal nature they must accuse others of being criminals. What we call projection. They must become obsessed with the criminality of other people. And Black folk become those other people.

"You call the Indians savages, so you can behave toward them savagely." That’s the function of stereotyping. If I call you a criminal, then I can treat you criminally. "I don’t owe you justice. In fact, shooting you in the street is justice. We know you’re already a criminal, why should we bother to take you to trial?"

Currently in cinemas: white men standing dramatically near scenes of disaster

Wait… why is Noah white?

I thought the same about the Spartans, ahah.
Also that Pompeii movie poster is misleading THERE IS NO PYROCLASTIC FLOW.

Okay, I have to publicly laugh at Pompeii because it’s such a beautiful example of how history is far more dramatic than the ‘dramatized’ movie depictions.
In reality, Pompeii was buried by a pyroclastic flow. So, an ash cloud heavy enough that it sinks in air and flows down slopes fluidly, at temperatures over 1000 C (1800 F), at speeds of over 300km/hr. Read that temperature again. That’s minimum - it could have been as high as 2000 C. People literally melted, exploded, and boiled to death when this thing hit. The famous mummy-like corpses we see were the ones on the outskirts and higher ground and managed to avoid the worst of the heat - then slowly suffocated to death on the cooler ash waiting for help.
So filmmakers chose flying rocks over the most gruesome natural disaster in recorded history, either because they thought an ash cloud was boring and flaming rocks were far more interesting, or because what really happened was literally too horrific to show on a screen.

Dude pyroclastic flows are utterly terrifying to watch and look really awesome in terms of VFX.

but also none of these dudes should be white. Like yeah pyroclastic flows are AWESOME, but. None of these dudes should be white.

We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work. By

Tulsa OK 1921: US Government Bombs US City



National Guard troops patrolling the streets armed. Thousands of black people held in a convention center. Hundreds of black dead, with bodies piled like wood. That was not New Orleans, that was Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June 1921.On May 30, 1921 a young black man named Dick Rowland, stumbled into a white woman, while entering an elevator. He was accused of assault, and arrested the next day. Newly rich from oil Tulsa, was a Ku Klux Klan town. Rowland was sentenced to be hanged. The Tulsa Tribune called for a “Negro lynching tonight.”The white mob was surprised when they were met by several dozen armed black men, dressed in their World War I uniforms. This led to a racist three day destruction of the black neighborhood of Greenwood. The Red Cross reported 300 mostly dead black people.Greenwood called “Little Africa,” was a relatively wealthy community. White mobs, many deputized, destroyed every house, store, church or school. The mob met resistance from an armed black population. Governor Robertson declared martial law. The National Guard arrived with machine gun mounted trucks, and airplanes hovering over Greenwood. It was the first time an American city was bombed from the air, by the US government.Over 6,000 black people, were round up and held in the convention center and fairgrounds, as long as eight days. The homeless were shuttled into a tent city, where typhoid and malnutrition took over. Blacks were allowed out of the convention center, with a tag, with an employers name. Thosands fled the city.Attempts to turn Greenwood into an industrial zone were unsuccessful. For several years, it was deprived of paved streets, running water, and garbage collection.See: Tulsa Reparations Coalition and thank you to Internationalist Group for presenting this story in your newspaper.

Shit they don’t teach you in school.



"You should just get over it guys"

My grandma lost her parents during this.

When y’all get on that Black Buying Power shit and start shaming Black Folks asking “We don’t have xyz like the next race.”……remember our government bombed us, a wealthy prosperous Black City…was bombed. Another prosperous Black town Rosewood, was destroyed because of the “black man rapist” stereotype…..stop acting like we never built our own communities we did, but don’t ask us, why they’re not still standing.
