Let the Paintings Tell the Story
— 

These are the Arabs. the original Arabs.

Horace Vernet - Portrait of an Arab.

These are the original Arabs. They populated North Africa, the Middle east and Turkey.

Adolf Schreyer - Four Mameluk

Today, they tell you, people of African descent are in the Middle East and North Africa because of slavery but these people once inhabited those lands.

Alfred Du Druex - Groom Soudanais sur son etalon.

They also tell us, Africans have always been slaves to the Arabs, white Arabs that is, which is a lie. A big fat lie but let the painting do the talking.

Artist - Unknown.

People of African descent are being taught in the Middle East and north Africa that they are nothing but descendant of slaves. Here are the original Arabs.

Charles Bargue - The Oriental Coffee House.

So how do they keep telling us, we have always been slaves to them, to the white Arabs? We have to realize, the narrative of slavery is based on nothing but lies, these are the original Arabs who occupied north African, the middle East and parts of Turkey.

If we are talking about the Barbary sex slavery of white women, then maybe.

Turk man. A Turk man. A Turk but they tell us, we have always been slaves to them, to the white Arabs. A dream, a pipe dream.

Iconic NY Anchor Had a Front Row Seat When Beatles Made History

New York reporter Gabe Pressman witnessed a lot in his more than 60 years of television broadcasting, but the photographic evidence that he had a front row seat to history was most dramatically captured when the Beatles arrived for their first trip to the U.S. in 1964.

Gazing up at the four shaggy-haired British lads, just above the microphones, Pressman stands out from the crowd of reporters. “Though few of us thought it at the time, we were witnessing the birth of an era,” said Pressman in 2014. The Beatles were greeted by a screaming crowd estimated at 5,000.

Pressman died Friday at the age of 93. See more here.

66+67 with young charles xavierrr i love him

66. “I’ve loved you since the first moment I saw you. And I’ll love you until my last.”

67. “Please don’t go! Don’t leave me here!”


I didn’t know how it had happened. It was all so fast… Erik and Moira, then Charles… I rushed to his side. People were saying things, but I didn’t hear any of it. I think Charles told Raven to do whatever she wanted…

Suddenly, the ringing in my head was interrupted. Someone was calling my name. Erik. He wanted me to come with him…

“Please…” Charles groaned painfully. “Please don’t go! D– Ah! Don’t leave me here… I couldn’t bear to lose you, (Y/N).”

Seeing him begging vut me to the heart. He had let Raven go so easily because he knew it was best for her… But here he was begging me to stay. This was the only time I had ever seen Charles Xavier act… selfishly… This could only mean one thing.

“Oh Charles… I’ve loved you since the first moment I saw you. And I’ll love you until my last.” As his expression brightened, I smiled softly and continued, “I’ll never leave you.”

Alice in Wonderland printable posters 

do you ever just think about how magnus and alec probably spend night after night, just talking. whether it’s stretched out on the couch, abandoned take out boxes on the coffee table, one of magnus’ favourite shows playing in the background as alec tells magnus the story of when izzy accidentally broke jace’s arm when they were younger. or whether they’re sitting out on the balcony, a fluffy blanket wrapped around them, soft music playing from inside the loft as magnus laughs when he recalls the time ragnor and him got extremely drunk and catarina had to try and get them back on their feet and through a portal before anyone noticed them. or whether they’re walking through the park, hand in hand, talking about how their day was and where they should go for their next date and joking about how they should portal away where no one can find them so they can finally get some peace. like most nights they’ll spend chatting to one another for hours and they’ll look forward to it all day, to coming home and telling each other about the awful client magnus had or the teasing alec had to put up with from his siblings. like they’re so smitten that they love just hearing each other’s voices, it’s calming, it’s a safe warm feeling in their stomach, it’s coming home after a long day.

Charles just wanted to show is love. Haytham just want to be left in peace. Connor is a rabid wolf animal.

It seems like I ended up deeper in this fandom than I thought I would.
