I’m about to start posting for my new Indigenous Peoples Project. My hope is that all people, native and non-native, will be able to see that not every indian woman looks the same, has the same story, or sees themselves in such a homogenous way. We may be different physically with varying skin tones and hair, but we are all native. We all have an experience to share. And I truly hope that this blog enlightens and inspires people to view Native Women in a more realistic and accepting way.
there’s a hashtag on twitter right now that i think is great. #HispanicGirlsUnited because my parents left everything they had, their home, their friends and family, to move here and work their asses off to give me and my brother a better life than they had. because people shame us for being 16 and pregnant yet white people get a show for it. because girls with lighter skin aren’t considered Hispanic but girls with darker skin are shamed for it. because people like to celebrate our holidays and wear clothes made by us in our countries but still tell us to go back to our countries. because we’re not all Mexican. because people still say that Hispanics are a waste of space and take jobs when in reality we do the jobs no one else wants. because one of the few times Hispanic women get appreciated is when they’re being sexualized. because “oh you don’t act like one of THOSE Hispanics” is supposed to be taken as a compliment. because white people shame us for having naturally tan/dark skin and think it’s ok when they have to use cosmetics for theirs. because you force us to integrate into american culture but remind us every day that this “isn’t our country”. the list goes on and on. i don’t get why Hispanics are looked down upon so much. maybe it’s because our parents don’t spoil us and they teach us to earn what we deserve and appreciate everything life has to offer.. i’m so proud to be Hispanic and i don’t give a fuck what some of the assholes running and living in this country think.
no,I can't be calm,no I can't be happy while people are killed in China because of their ethnics and religions and no I won't be quiet until you start doing something for it.
Every year,every Ramadan a lot of people in East Turkestan are getting killed by China government.It is genocide and terorrism.Nuclear Weapons are tried in East Turkestan and Uyghur girls are taken as prostitutes to Chinese men,soldiers take babies inside their moms’ wombs and kill them.They do it because they do not want Uyghur population to increase.Yesterday Chinese people broke two Uyghur Muslims fast by drinking them beer forcefully and hijabi girls are killed because they wanted to keep their hijabs on their heads.However according to THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS and its articles,especially 1. to 9.,all humans are equal and have rights to live.
What is done to black people and lgbt people are being done to East Turkestan people,mentally and physically.Please help to spread and support.
