When was the last time the Black panthers Lynched anyone?
When’s the last time the Black Panthers burned crosses in someone’s yard?
When’s the last time the Black Panthers completely destroyed white towns for fear of their prosperity?Have the panthers ever burned down any white schools to keep white people “in their place”?
Are these white folks serious?! Please, please…do yourselves a favor and earn some citations on this country’s history. The Black Panthers were NOT like the Klu Klux Klan. Their objective was not to go around and terrorize and murder white people. The KKK however, was definitely a reactionary terrorist/extremist group. The Klan emerged during “The Nadir” (the lowest point) in 1877, after poor and disenfranchised whites stomped out Reconstruction and Blacks ultimately lost their civil rights. White people losing their mobility in this country was the core reason for terrorizing African Americans, but after that bullshit, 15 reels, massive 3-hour long movie “The Birth of a Nation" was released in 1915, now all of a sudden, Black people became barraged with this false image of themselves as threatening, violent, and barbaric, particularly to white women in society (The New Negro Crime) which ultimately led to hundred of thousands of lynchings and murders of Blacks in America. The Klan had one objective, to exterminate Black people. They spurred false rhetoric, hate, and violence…that’s it!
The Black Panthers was a revolutionary socialist organization that started in the mid-1960’s in Oakland, CA aiming to PROTECT the Black community. They were against police brutality, imperialism, capitalism or anything they felt was detrimental to Black Americans. They wanted Black people to fend for themselves, that’s why they carried guns, and they used them cautiously. They helped the sick, the poor, single mothers and their children, they even implemented a free ambulance and breakfast program in the community, yet they’re like the KKK?! Their goals were simple: quality education, housing, employment, and civil rights.They were not a violent group and neither was Malcolm X, contrary to popular opinion, they just believed in their right to self defense.The bottom line is, The Black Panther Party was a mobilization by African Americans, and people of the African descent across the world to break down institutionalized oppression by any means necessary. And FYI, many whites supported like Marlon Brando, and others.
*Don’t disrespect my people and Blackness!
GIRL, YOU BETTA SAY THAT SHIT!!!!!!
I love the dialogue that whitepeoplesaidwhat starts.
The real world.
This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.
And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.
That’s not even the only reason why it was the best show ever
Demi Lovato is going to launch The Lovato Scholarship Program in honor of her father.
it’s so refreshing to see someone as famous and popular as she is with teen girls be so honest about mental illness
It’s also really refreshing to see a celebrity putting money into getting actual treatment for people, not just vague “awareness”.
Add this to the list of reasons I like her.
She is so amazing. Words can’t describe how much I love her.
As a fellow Bipolar sufferer, I love her so so much, even if I’m not a huge fan of most of her music. She always seems to sweet, and she’s always open and honest with her fans about herself, and that’s rare, and really beautiful.
