The USA is not a Moral Authority

I’m sick of this nonsense about the U.S. being a moral authority. At no point in its history has the U.S. been a beacon of morality:

  • Not when committing genocide against the Native Americans.
  • Not when passing out smallpox blankets and liquor to Native Americans.
  • Not when forcibly performing experiments on Black slaves.
  • Not during the Tuskegee Experiment.
  • Not when stealing Puerto Rico.
  • Not when performing forced sterilizations on unknowing women of color.
  • Not when stealing Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and California from Mexico.
  • Not when enslaving, selling, raping, murdering, and torturing Africans.
  • Not when it had Jim Crow.
  • Not during the Civil Rights Movement.
  • Not when it was dropping bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
  • Not when it had Japanese internment camps (WWII), into which they forced American citizens.
  • Not when it engaged in an illegal war with Vietnam and committed MANY horrific war crimes (My Lai Massacre; Agent Orange).
  • Not when it assassinated–or helped bring about the assassinations of–Patrice Lumumba, Malcolm X, MLK, Fred Hampton, and many more.
  • Not when it put drugs and guns into Black communities.
  • Not when it instituted racist drug laws.
  • Not when creating racist organizations to sabotage Civil Rights movements (COINTELPRO).
  • Not during the terrorist acts against “Black Wallstreet” in 1921 (Tulsa race riot).
  • Not when lynchings of Black people were sources of entertainment for racist monsters.
  • Not when it invaded the wrong country (Iraq) under false pretenses.
  • Not when it has the highest prison population in the world.
  • Not when has a culture that promotes rape.
  • Not when people can be murdered on camera and the murderer go free (Eric Garner murdered with illegal chokehold).
  • Not when Native American populations have been decimated, and many of the ones left continue to suffer on reservations.
  • Not when using drones to kill innocent Pakistani, Yemeni, and even American civilians.
  • Not when torturing people with water-boarding, rectal feeding/rehydration, and force-feeding people through tubes shoved down their nasal passages.
  • Not while continuing to keep Guantanamo Bay open, holding more than 130 people prisoner.

The U.S. has long lauded itself as THE moral authority, but it is a nation founded on hypocrisy and irony, genocide and slavery, rape and torture, theft and corruption. The United States of AmeriKKKa is one of the most immoral and unjust nations in the world… Possibly the worst, on the basis of its hypocrisy.

Gun Control’s Racist History

fuckin eyyy right god damn it

anonymous asked:

In the 70's a Batman comic about Virginia's loose gun laws enabled guns to flood NYC ghettos convinced people to vote for strong laws. Yes, Batman convinced Virginias to vote yes on gun control to help black communities in NYC. Anyone who says Batman is about a rich guy beating up poor people doesn't know shit. But it is racist that if Batman were a black character that shit wouldn't have happened.

Dogg, you have way too much of your personality wrapped up in Batman.

you're so racist lately

No. Just fucking tired of watching tumblr baby every single black person they see.

Some things, yeah stand up for them. Ferguson, etc. but this Milwaukee thing!? A black cop protecting a black neighborhood shot a black man who pointed a loaded stolen gun at him, and black community responds by burning down and looting their own stores and jumping white people?

I don’t think so. It’s people taking advantage of the fact that they are being babied and made to be victims and stealing and burning just because they CAN and people will defend them because #BLACKLIVESMATTER.

People of any color need to be held responsible for their actions, and for the past couple years people have focused on whites doing wrong but now they’re getting carried away, as if blacks can do no wrong.

It’s a criminal matter what he did. He deserved what happened. He pointed a loaded gun at a black cop. Race has nothing to do with this, yet it’s still somehow worth riots and blaming whites.

So sorry it seems racist but I am SO tired of seeing tumblr baby black people simply for being. Stop making excuses for criminals. It’s not racist to call a criminal a criminal, no matter what color they are. Don’t play the victim, and you won’t be. You create your own oppression by insisting you are.
