Philadelphians Stand in Solidarity with the Chibok234

Above are images from a rally I attended today held at Love Park in Philadelphia, PA. The objective of the demonstration was to show support and solidarity toward the hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by terrorist group, Boko Haram, over two weeks ago. 

Local activists, poets, and professors addressed the crowd to express their frustrations with the lack of international media attention the story has received, the perpetuation of rape culture that enables these acts of violence, and the world’s refusal to acknowledge black people’s humanity.

The crowd broke into chants of “Black Girls Matter,” “We are Africans,” and “Bring Back Our Girls” while walking through downtown Philadelphia in an effort to raise awareness of this situation as well as stress the importance of protecting the well-being of black girls across the globe.

Anonymous said: The other day I met an indigenous man who I started chatting to. When i told him my name, he was visibly shocked and teared up. He said that his deceased mother had the same name as me. Other than that it is upsetting to be reminded of deceased people you love, are the names of deceased indigenous people culturally significant?

black-australia:

Especially within Indigenous communities where culture and traditions are still practiced and going strong, the deceased person’s name won’t ever be used. It’ll be forbidden to be spoken and anyone else who happens to have the same name will get a replacement name. But this is only for a short period of time and isn’t permanent. This period of mourning and avoidance can last from 6-12 months to a few years.

Once again, Caucasian does not mean white, and using it to mean white is actually racist.

There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.

A shire in Western Australia’s Goldfields has voted not to lodge a formal complaint against a local publican who displayed a sign that was criticised as racist.

"Criticised as racist" - uhhhh…. it was blatant racism and racial profiling? Denying entry and assuming they all steal purely based on the fact that they’re Indigenous? That’s as racist as you can get.
