This post is dedicated to all of the kids that were involved in the Civil Rights Movement. The kids who suffered through police brutality and race mobs to give us the freedom that we take for granted today. Many didn’t know what they were fighting for; many didn’t know how big the movement was; and many didn’t know if they’d survive to see another birthday or milestone of life, yet they still chose to stand against their oppressors. Salute!

My response to a racist and ignorant post (top picture) that I saw on Facebook.
The following are all examples of peoples whose livelihoods were destroyed by European settlement or conquest. Most of these “neighborhoods” are discussed more in depth in the Racism: A History series that can be found for free on YouTube which was ironically done by the BBC.

Well said, good sir.

2. Picture of the last full blooded Tasmanian family.
3. Pictures of women and children who were punished for the men in the families not meeting rubber quotas in Belgian occupied Congo Free State.
4. Picture of a woman who was made to walk the Trail of Tears.

anytime white people have moved in, they have left a trail of pain, destruction, mutilation, rape and murder
but they afraid of brown people moving in?
