ooj:

for those of you that have never heard of it, StoryCorps is a nonprofit project of sharing and listening to stories from people of all different backgrounds and beliefs in america.  the stories range from a fond conversation between a mother and her adopted queer son to gripping and sincere painful memories of losing loved ones.  possibly my favourite part about the project is how remarkable it feels to really listen to people.  they have a small (but growing!) collection of animated versions of the stories on their youtube, and then the full 50,000+ recordings on their website.

they also have a wonderful 20 minute animated story compilation.

Sexism 60’s

jesus???????????????

What the fuck was wrong with men in the 60’s?

advertising is important as it’s the historian’s best resource for identifying the values of an era. but yeah, these were fucked. the 60s was generally as fucked as the 50s. people forget that. 

It literally says ‘men are better than women’ in bold type, what the fuck. I knew this was a thing, but that is a lack of subtlety I couldn’t have written into a spoof…

This is the generation that spawned most of our parents… People our parents’ age run Washington. Starting to make sense?

When you look to the past, the struggles of the present become a great deal more clear.

Hey Everyone, just an FYI…. This is not over. This is not exclusive to “our parents generation”

IM SCREAMIBG WITH LAUGHTER THESE GIRLS ARE MY HEROES

SHOTS FUCKING FIRED

For anyone not familiar with how modern country sounds, these girls are calling out ACTUAL songs like making blatant references to ACTUAL lyrics from other songs on the radio.

And its fucking FLAWLESS OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING.

One of the reasons I stopped listening to country was, when I was a kid, the radio was full of songs by women and songs that talked about women like they were actual people.

Now so many of the songs dont give women a personality, just describe things about them like their legs, their lips, how they look in your truck. Its just SO much objectification.

My sister just showed me this and its ADSFHASDFKLLKFH she even said she heard it on the radio im so happy

"I aint your tan legged juliet" IM SCREECHING

I might be in love please send help

BLESS THIS SONG…this is why I stopped listening to country..this is fucking perfect and legit.

THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.

Happy Columbus Day!

Yesterday I attended a protest against Columbus Day in Los Angeles. The rally started on Olvera Street across the way from Union Station then  to the cathedral in downtown L.A. We stood in front of the church for a half an hour, preaching of what obscenities the church allowed against the indigenous people of the Americas. The church was also built on sacred land.

While we were there, there was a group of white people staring at us as we protested on the other side of the street. A little whitey mocked us while the ignorant white girls sneered. An old white man we nicknamed Skip shouted “Boo!” while our words were said through the microphone of the injustice the church brought upon 100 million people.

Later, we marched with our signs held high to the Columbus statue in Grand Park of downtown L.A. It was set there in the park in 1976 (first picture of the set), the plaque stating the Columbus discovered America and is a “legend among immortals”. We returned to Olvera street where there were dancers celebrating the indigenous people that were once here.

It was hot but it was worth marching for this—to change Columbus Day  just as Seattle has done. There should be no holiday marking a terrorist and murderer. 

Happy Indigenous Day!

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
Forget Columbus. (Forget Bartolomé, another European colonizer the Oatmeal has been making quite popular.) Solidarity in the struggle for decolonization!
