The Event: How Racist Are You? with Jane Elliott
WHITE ALLIES, anyone who wonders why POC make a big deal about being discriminated against, or just anyone who’s interested, PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO. AND REMEMBER THE NAME… JANE ELLIOT. White allies watch and observe how Jane rolls.
fifty whole minutes of White People Not Getting The Point
watching her do these is always so frustrating because it literally is just a whole activity of white people not understanding and leaving the activity without having learned shit
Wish I was more surprised. Even with her white privilege, it was impossible to get these white folks to listen. Sigh.
Stop what you are doing.
If you don’t want to read, I’ll explain the key bullet points, but please read them afterwords:
This is not “we didn’t protect him enough.”
This is not “the government screwed up some random detail or accidentally let his killer loose.”
The 111th Military Intelligence had a team taking pictures of his balcony during the assassination.
They brought in a Special Forces 8-Man Sniper Team from the 20th.
Memphis Police withdrew their regular protection detail from him.
A jury of 12 people, six black and six white, found the United States Government guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.
YOUR GOVERNMENT. MY GOVERNMENT. THE GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE, SHOT AND KILLED DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING. And the media never reported the case.
MLK was ASSASSINATED. By a government YOU PAY FOR.
I hate those posts where someone tries to pressure you into reblogging. I almost never ask you to reblog.
This shit is important.
Reblog this. I don’t care what kind of blog you have. I don’t care what you normally talk about.
this is always on reblog
Latifa: لطيفة meaning delicate/kind in arabic.
Shaniqua: meaning ‘gift of god’, an african name.
Latoya: meaning ‘victorious’ and ‘worthy of praise’
Lakisha: also known as lakeisha, means ‘joyful, happy’

Some of the names on this list have been made up, just to make a mockery out of us. These names are beautiful.
