Being white means never having to think about it.
James Baldwin (via intellocgent)
#which is why the term white privilege REALLY angers people#it’s the first time many people hear themselves categorized by race#suddenly they feel burdened by the idea their race defines them#just like the words straight and cis really anger people#because it makes them feel Othered for once#and it’s disconcerting#white privilege (skylikethat)

Capitalism is when an unarmed teenager gets gunned down in cold blood and one of the bigger media focuses is the looting of private industries.
Capitalism is when a weapons industry manufacturing for the sake of profit and growth overproduces surplus weapons that are then given to police departments to use on black communities.
In Aesop’s fable about the crow and the pitcher, a thirsty bird finds a vessel of water, but when he tries to drink from it, he finds that the water level is too low. Not strong enough to knock over the pitcher, the bird drops pebbles into it—one at a time—until the water level rises enough for him to drink his fill.
Highlighting the value of ingenuity, the fable demonstrates that cognitive ability can often be more effective than brute force. It also characterizes crows as pretty resourceful problem solvers.
New research conducted by University of California, Santa Barbara’s Corina Logan and collaborators proves the birds’ intellectual prowess may be more fact than fiction. The findings appear in PLOS ONE.
“We showed that crows can discriminate between different volumes of water and that they can pass a modified test that so far only 7- to 10-year-old children have been able to complete successfully,” says Logan, who is lead author of the paper.
“We provide the strongest evidence so far that the birds attend to cause-and-effect relationships by choosing options that displace more water.”
Israel isn’t under control of Hitler’s occupying army though. An occupying army that was sending Jewish people to the concentration camps by railroad cars I might add. So I personally don’t think your comparison is very good one. Germany lobbing rockets into London and Hamas lobbing rockets into Israel would be a better comparison. In my opinion anyway.
Well seeing that Israel is currently occupying Palestine, both the West Bank and Gaza through a crippling blockade, I think its a perfectly apt comparison. Especially as Israel has been adamant in its attempts to obliterate the “demographic threat” of Palestinians through overt ethnic cleansing and segregation.
And seeing as the V-1 and V-2 weapons actually killed a lot of people in London, while the Hamas rockets are little more effective then bottle rockets, the comparison is completely false there.
