this was taken at the Museum of London, Docklands - it has a large section about London’s role in slavery, and how slavery contributed to modern racism. 

I think that a lot of museums are finally starting to try and take a more proactive stance on how they present their exhibits and information about them.
For more on this kind of arrangement, I high recommend taking a look at these submissions from xanthy-m on the Swedish Historical Museum:

Anonymous asked:

if an author writes a book with mostly white people does that make the author racist for not including diversity in the books?

lookatthisfuckingoppressor answered:

I’m not going to speculate as to the intent or motives of a nonexistent hypothetical author. The phrasing makes this almost seem like a question meant to bait me.But lack of representation is a real and important issue. If an author finds themselves writing worlds filled with nothing but white people: that’s a thing they need to question and address. It could mean they have racist biases, have influences who do, or have never questioned the ways society makes people of color invisible except when convenient. Ultimately the motive isn’t as important as the fact that there will be one more person writing worlds where people of color don’t matter or don’t exist and that does real harm.

And in case this is bait: yes. They’re super racist and their writing style is tedious and derivative.

samanticshift:

Not specifically about this (baiting) ask, but:

People who only write books about white people, men, heterosexual people, etc, almost always say something like, “there’s no reason for the character(s) to be [part of marginalized group],” but never stop to wonder why they need to be part of a privileged group. Or they’ll say something like “the characters are universally relatable,” in which case why the fuck wouldn’t you make them diverse? It doesn’t matter, right? Your character would be just as relatable if they were Black as they are now, right?

I’m sick of people thinking you need a particular reason to include diverse characters but don’t need to justify the existence of privileged characters. It’s almost like those people are just bigots who consider whiteness, maleness, heterosexuality, and cisgenderedness the “default.”

Maybe I’m wrong, though. I mean, it could all be a coincidence.

anxiety.

Or, you know, you could just stop saying sorry.

I take it you don’t have anxiety.

You can’t “just stop saying sorry”. You do something, something so little, like accidentally bump into someone. You feel horrible about it. Your brain starts panicking and you have trouble trying to breathe. You stutter an apology. They say it’s okay, but you accidentally do it again, and you apologize again. They just say “Aha, you can stop saying sorry.” And you feel horrible that you’ve probably made them angry or upset, so you mutter out an apology for the third stupid time, and they just say to stop saying sorry. Stop saying sorry. 

You can’t just tell someone to stop saying you’re sorry.

I want that comment on flyers so I can hang them in my school

reblogging this one for the GOOD commentary.

assuming shes average height. her boobs appear to be about 1/3 her torso and average torso of a female being 22.6” her boobs are about 7.5” long. a foot is 12 inches. theyre moving at 5,600ft aka 67200 inches a second. her boobs are flopping 8960 times a second.

8960 flops per second would result in the shockwaves from her breasts emitting an 8960 Hz tone, which is actually a very shrill noise within the range of human hearing. You can enter 8960 into this website to hear an audio sample of what her breast-tone would approximately sound like
