“Einstein, when he arrived in America, was shocked at how Black Americans were treated. “There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States,” he said. “That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. And, I do not intend to be quiet about it.” And, he wasn’t.
Although he had a fear of speaking in public, he made all the effort he could to spread the word of equality, denouncing racism and segregation and becoming a huge proponent of civil rights even before the term became fashionable. Einstein was a member of several civil rights groups (including the Princeton chapter of the NAACP).Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!”

I wonder why I never learned this about Einstein in school…oh wait, I do know why.

Yeah, I mean how could you “tarnish” the legacy of one of the world’s greatest physicists by linking him to the fight for racial equality, especially since he openly calls out racism as a “disease” of the white oppressor. Of course this isn’t a bigger part of his historical narrative.

Michael K. Williams talks about an emotional moment on the set of ‘12 Years a Slave’, moving Arsenio Hall to tears.

The emotional and spiritual toll that this film must have taken on every single Black cast member…..

Lord….

The first actor from this movie to really talk about the emotional toll it took to pull these characters off. Everyone else seemed like…it’s a job.

^^^ Yes. McQueen was pissing me off with that.

June, 1964. Black children integrate the swimming pool of the Monson Motel. To force them out, the owner pours acid into the water.



And white folk wonder why

My mom was born in ‘64, kay? So, what that means is… THIS SHIT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO AND Y’ALL NEED TO STOP ACTING LIKE THE SHIT WE TALK ABOUT IS ARCHAIC AND OLD-HAT.

my mom was still in trinidad when this happened but seriously it could’ve happened to either my aunt or uncle who were 12 and 15/16 respectively

I think photos like this need to exist, not because I like the subject matter, but because it helps immortalize events that many people want to forget ever happened (and work pretty hard to make it so). It makes us face it. I’ve seen this picture before, but don’t know all the details. I hope the children in this photo were okay.

I’m always going to reblog photos like this. People are always like “Oh just get over it already”. Well, no.
No.

Reblogging this picture AGAIN. Because NEVER FORGET.

This is awful, no human being should be treated like this. However, I’d just like to point out that not all white people were like this or are like this. Many people might be annoyed by the fact that anyone with a lighter complexion is grouped in with savages such as the man depicted above pouring the acid

^Wtf is wrong with White people though?
Like, I really want to know what the fuck is wrong with y’all? I really want to know what possesses y’all to hear, see, eat, shit, and breathe nothing but White people, White ideals, and White history all fucking day long… and then when you see ONE thing circulating that doesn’t involve White people and sunshine, lollipops, and teddy bears, you feel the need to “point out” something????
THIS IS NOT AN OFFENSIVE AGAINST YOU. THIS IS SIMPLE HISTORY. THIS IS WHAT YOU DID AND DO TO PEOPLE!! And instead of fessing up.. White people have only ever denied and averted attention away from true facts of the matter. They never want to talk about what IS there. They wanna talk about what ISN’T there. Any other time, it’s exactly what’s in the photo. But only when confronted with their racism, white people look away and suddenly think, “Well.. what about what’s not there.” Is it like looking in the mirror and not liking what you see?.. I mean, wtf is that? Why did you have to poke in your little irrelevant opinion?
Sure there are “good White people.” NO DUH! But I’ll tell you one thing… seems like it’s a billion White people online ****all**** thinking they’re “good.” But racism against people of color still exists… from the economy.. to education…to the government…. to dating…  to simple online gaming… RACISM STILL EXISTS. Not only are people of color talking about it…. It is documented. It is quantitative and qualitative. 
So where the fuck are all you “good” White people?????????????????
I guess too busy trying to defend your “image”  and apparently not “good” enough to get off your “good” asses and make changes in this country. 
Here is THE ONE THING I’ve learned about “good” White people. You go to their blog…….. They sit on their asses blogging nothing but White models.. White television shows, White book characters…. White White White.. all day….and then the ONE TIME they decide to blog anything .. anything about racism at ALL…. they still manage to somehow make it about White people’s “goodness”. Oh.. everybody doesn’t do that. I can’t possibly be grouped in with those other people. I’m diet racist-lite now with Splenda.
I wish I could take every “good” White person I’ve run across online.. line them up in a row, and spit in their faces or at least physically shake them…. maybe toss a glass of wine in their face. Something ANYTHING to get them to WAKE THE FUCK UP and realize YOU ARE NOT THE  GOOD WHITE PERSON THAT YOU LIKE TO THINK THAT YOU ARE!!!!!!!! Racism is alive and prospering in the country that it built… we are living history right now. And when they look back on our present times, you will not be counted among the “good” White people.
And has the nerve to talk about being annoyed.
You don’t know what it’s like to be annoyed ‘til you had a conversation with a “good” White person about racism.
And for the record, in my entire life, I’ve met 2 racially conscious White people… and lemme tell you, they don’t derail conversations about racism so that they can put more unnecessary positive White affirmations out into the world.
