These are some designs I made to celebrate Black history and significant figures who I’ve always really appreciated. I plan on coming back to these and expand as much as I can. These were really fun to work on and even my Frederick Douglass design was hung up and mounted at my college’s gallery.

The purpose of these pieces were to convey black figures in a simple form that also had a detailed summary of them, I’ve noticed in history books the history of any minority whether it be Black history or Womens history is greatly undetailed about the struggles and other leaders that are looked over. so I took it into my own hands and thought it was a nice way to honor these figures.

Stay Tuned.

is it possible to be a capitalist (I make money and I like being financially stable) and support antifa at the same time? I just hate nazis

So three things we want to say here:

1) Your definition of capitalism as “making money and being financially stable” isn’t really a definition of capitalism in that there’s lots of other economic systems that allow people to make money and be financially stable. 

2) Good news:  Antifascism is non-sectarian and a pretty big tent where people with all sorts of economic and political beliefs unite in their mutual hatred of nazis.  We’re not too concerned what economic system you personally believe is the best, so long as you are against fascism.

3) Bad news:  Capitalist antifa have to contend with a lot of contradictions.  Like the historical fact that racism was created by capitalist colonial expansion.  Or arguing against people like Angela Davis, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, and Fred Hampton - all of whom believed that capitalism & racism go hand-in-hand.  Or having to take a good, hard look at the racist implications of capitalism in a country like the U.S. in these times.

Fascism has always had a twisting and complicated relationship to capitalism - sometimes opposing it, sometimes embracing it.  Many people identify fascism itself as a form of capitalism - albeit the most violent, extreme form.  

It may be possible to be anti-fascist and pro-capitalist but it seems that there will be many contradictions to navigate by attempting to hold both positions.

Could a Pro-capitalist be an Anti-Facist? Would you support the idea of a Capitalist Antifa group? Do you think that the formation of a Capitalist Antifa group would benefit or harm your movement?

On one hand, our collective/this tumblr is a non-partisan anti-fascist one.  We’re not too concerned what economic system you personally believe is the best, so long as you are against fascism.

On the other hand, a capitalist antifa is going to have to contend with a lot of contradictions.  Like the historical fact that racism was created by capitalist colonial expansion.  Or arguing against people like Angela Davis, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, and Fred Hampton - all of whom believed that capitalism & racism go hand-in-hand.  Or having to take a good, hard look at the racist implications of capitalism in a country like the U.S. in these times.
