Maybe I’m searching wrong, but I can’t find anything about fancy old buildings built in Africa, like giant churches and state buildings plastered everywhere from Europe. I tried looking for specific countries but still nothing. Surely they’re not all destroyed?
Well, if you’re searching for “Africa”…then yeah, you’re probably searching wrong? I mean, I’ll act like stating the obvious isn’t necessary…? Because…?

This is so general, I don’t know quite how to answer you but I’ll do my best, I suppose.

You probably need to be much more specific. Basically you want the equivalent of European Medieval-y type castle buildings? They’re pretty much all over the place…

For fancy Christian churches with painted interiors, try searching “Copt” or “Coptic” (these are Zagwe dynasty, I believe):

Here’s Saint George’s Church in Addis Abeba:

And Bete Giorgis in Lalibela, Ethiopia:

I mean, there’s no order to this, I’m just throwing stuff out there at random. If you want, there’s a Wikipedia page for World Heritage Sites in Africa here. There’s another Wikipedia page for Architecture of Africa here.

This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.

Why Shane Dawson Is Racist

  • Why Blackface Is Racist

  • Brief Highlights of Modern Day Blackface By White People

Being Latino is not a cultural identity but rather a political one. Being Puerto Rican is not a racial identity, but rather a cultural and national one. Being Black is my racial identity. Why do I have to consistently explain this to those who are so-called conscious? Is it because they have a problem with their identity? Why is it so bad to assert who I am, for me to big-up my Africanness?

My Blackness is one of the greatest powers I have. We live in a society that devalues Blackness all the time. I will not be devalued as a human being, as a child of the Supreme Creator.

Although many of us in activist circles are enlightened, many of us have baggage that we must deal with. So many times I am asked why many Boricuas refuse to affirm their Blackness. I attribute this denial to the ever-rampant anti-Black sentiment in America and throughout the world, but I will not use this as an excuse. Often Puerto Ricans who assert our Blackness are not only outcast by Latinos who identify more with their Spanish Conqueror than their African ancestors, but we are also shunned by Black Americans who do not see us as Black.

Nelly Fuller, a great Black sociologist, stated: “Until one understands the system of White supremacy, anything and everything else will confuse you.” Divide and conquer still applies.

First problem: if you work for a “boss” as in having healthcare through your company, you pay this thing called a premium. As in, you pay. You pay money.

Let me repeat that again: You. Pay. Money. For. Your. Healthcare. Coverage. You don’t just check a box saying “yes I want healthcare coverage” and boom, you never pay a cent.

Your boss does not “provide it for free.” You pre-pay for it EVERY MONTH whether you use your healthcare for birth control, cancer treatment, mammograms, a urinary tract infection, a routine physical, meds for your pre-existing condition (Thanks ACA!) or NEVER GO TO THE DOCTOR AT ALL.

Reason number one that I need not just feminism and sex education in schools but BASIC FUCKING HEALTHCARE RULES TAUGHT IN SCHOOL INSTEAD OF REQUIRING ME TO TAKE THREE YEARS OF FUCKING FINDING THE MEANING OF X. I CAN FIND THE BASIC MEANING OF X BY THE END OF YEAR ONE. TEACH PEOPLE HOW FUCKING INSURANCE, LOANS, HEALTHCARE, ETC. WORKS INSTEAD!

Also reason number one that people need to be taught what “pre-paid” means.

This is the exact same nonsense as calling social security an “entitlement” when it is 100% funded by deductions from our own paychecks.

This, and all the above commentary, only touches the surface of all the ways this graphic is fucking ridiculously misinformed and wrong, btw.

It is EXTREMELY early in the morning here, i’ve already been up for a bit and I have a meeting at 7am sooo.. I’m just going to stay up a while then nap later I guess, whatever.

I’ve always known that me and my face is all over the internet, and that people say gross shit about me all of the time. That’s fine. I expected it.

However, someone alerted me last night to the fact that these people who dislike me - the anti-sjw bloggers, the white supremacists, 4chan and reddit etc,. have decided to go further

By submitting pictures I post of my baby sister and cousin to pedophilic image boards. Boards sexualizing Asian children or “lolicon” manga. This was a blatant attack at me, as not long after I was alerted to the images, they were removed due to violation of the board’s rules (apparently even pedophiles have some).

In addition to that, a lot of my pictures (and pictures of me with my best friend) was being posted around in various places, asking people to attempt to doxx me, etc. Tumblr included. I also saw a person who decided to write a graphic “fanfiction” of how he wants to pull my eyes out of my socket and fuck me in the “empty bloody socket”.

Mhm.

So, I have decided that i’m not posting anymore selcas.

People calling me a tr*nny, etc. and spreading my pictures all over the place was never a concern of mine. I knew it’d happen and if nothing else, I welcomed it.

However, apparently I thought even the white supremest garbage that despised me would have common sense enough to not tamper with the CENSORED pictures I would post of my family.

But, I was wrong. These people who believe i’m a “racist”, that I promote “white genocide”, retaliate by doing the only thing that actually upsets me - sexualizing and promoting the rape of children.

I’m going to repeat that.

They think i’m racist against white people.

So they decide to sexually abuse children to get back at me.

I’m not dense; I know a big part of what got me my popularity and notoriety is my face. Like I said, being called slurs was fine. Being threatened with rape, etc. was fine. Those creepy Asian fetishizing blogs jacking off to my pictures, was fine. But they know the abuse of children is something that gets to me and naturally, to prove that i’m a BAD HITLER PERSON, that’s what they tried to do.

My pictures are still around, I will post more in the future perhaps, but i’m going to be more careful about what I do most. I just instinctively thought that even the worst racist garbage would leave babies alone but nope, Asian babies like Asian person are not human to them and are therefore open to abuse. A few of these images have been removed after being repeatedly reported for posting without consent. I don’t know if more are you there. I don’t want to know.

But anyway.

That’s it for now.

there are no words for this. I’m sorry Jun.

Yet people still use the sorry ass excuse of “Oh it’s the Internet” or “Oh it’s 4chan!”

Like it’s fucking right to subjugate those close to you, it’s a fucking disgrace and these subhuman parasites deserved to get hounded down, whoever did this shit.

do you ever get really creepy subs who immediately want you forever and want your attention whenever they can have it?

Well yeah of course, the amount of addresses, ssn, addresses, and all other kinds of info you don’t give to a stranger, that I have on guys is ridiculous. They want to be owned and monitored and watched and texted and honestly, when you think that through, it has nothing to do with you at all. They want all the attention focused on themselves, they don’t want to serve they want to be watched and to know someone is there whose taking the time out to give a shit about them. 

Basically a really perverted fucked up way for a guy to not feel the pressure of loneliness crushing their soul, which it inevitability will. 

Stay away from creepy subs who demand a lot of attention.

Since everyone is shedding light on Sam Pepper for all of his sexual harassment towards women in his videos, I think we need to visit a topic that has never really been fully brought to everyone’s attention. Which is Shane Dawson.

Aside from his obvious blackface:

image

image

image

He has so many “characters” of hispanic and african american descent that are horribly offensive. He tacks on offensive “ghetto” accents and tangled cheap wigs and gives the characters the stereotypical racial persona’s like prostitutes, criminals, maids, cholas, etc.

Just a random example of one of his characters that is a maid with an offensive hispanic accent who he depicted having sex with a dog 

image

He was made popular for his character named Shanaynay who he’s played for years, every video the character is featured in contains extremely racist content. She’s depicted with a “ghetto” accent who makes horrible jokes. I mean there are countless videos of that character and every single one of them contain racist, homophobic, sexist and just outright offensive slurs and jokes. Just go to youtube, type “shane dawson shanaynay” and dozens of videos will pop up and i guarantee each one will have extremely offensive jokes and content.

image

In character or not, Shane’s videos always contain rape jokes, molestation jokes, racist jokes, sexist jokes, pedophilic jokes and homophobic jokes. Whether he’s in a costume and wig while doing it or just him out of character speaking. I actually lost count on how many times this man has said “F**got” over the years.

I am just making this post based on personal experience watching these videos and I am 100% sure there is way more horrible stuff so if you have anymore to say about this please feel free to reblog and add it on because I didn’t even go into depth of his videos and this is what i found with just about 10 minutes of searching things up. 

Shane has been making youtube videos for over 5 years now and he’s slid by with no repercussion or consequences of his seriously offensive actions.

I this dream where I was seeing some really weird shit that other people couldn't see, it was freaking me out. Suddenly you were there and you grabbed my face and said can you see them now? And I said yeah and you told me "don't pay attention to them look at me" so you and I just stared at each other for a while and then you ask if I could see them still and I said there was only one but it was okay because I knew that one??? Then I asked if I could thank you for your help with ice cream (pt 1~)

(pt 2~) And you were like yeah sure!!! Then because it’s a dream we magically walked out my front door even though we were outside and you were like “what the fuck?” and I was like “yeah sorry it’s a dream so it kinda doesn’t make sense.” And when I realized it was a dream I woke up. I just thought it was interesting :P

so then you never paid me back with ice cream…?? Dream Ten is disappointed.
