Whitey Of The Week
WOC Wednesday

White people have wreaked havoc across the entire world. They have made "genocide get comfortable", enslaved, slaughtered, and tortured millions of people of color while stealing land in the name of "manifest destiny".

And now, we POC are tired of it. in the name of the ancestors that have died for us to have a voice, we hereby declare that white people must be stopped. No longer will we stand aside and watch as they steal and ruin our rich and beautiful cultures.

THIS BLOG CALLS OUT WHITE PEOPLE, HENCE THE URL. People of color do appropriate, but it is because white people began this tradition of dehumanization without any remorse.

Click here to view the contestants below.
Which of these whiteys displays more white privilege by dehumanzing the suppressed POCs under white supremacy?
 

Amazing followers, do not send whoever we call out any sort of anonymous hate or death upon them. If you wish to send the honky a message, proceed to do so OFF of anoymous by asking questions about their racism or further calling them out on their white supremacist views without threatening their lives.

KNOW THE VEILS








Nicki Minaj takin out white people who want to appropriate her culture and act like they know what it's like to be oppressed in a white supremacist society


THE WRONG WAY BY WHITE PEOPLE


Some troll that came out from under the bridge appropriating the sari and bindi


Another troll dressing up as an actual human being and stripping said human being's self worth and culture


A demon from the seventh level of hell dressing up as an actual human being and stripping said human being's self worth and culture


Icky Azalea trying to look like a Black woman by getting her flat ass inflated with mayonnaise

I think that's a human being? I'm not sure. The ugliness is very hard to tell.


A racist mayo stain decides that there is nothing wrong to dress up in the skin of another person she oppresses

The same aging carton of milk appropriates Egyptians who were African, not white. Imagine the backlash Beyonce would get if she decided to make a Viking inspired music video since the Vikings weren't Black. Katy Perry is also not on Bey's level. Katy Perry is on the dog shit level.


A white women modelling for a racist costume making company that dehumanizes Inuit by dressing up as them and calling the costume a racial slur


Ew


A plastic surgery disaster smiles as she remembers how 95% of the Native American race were wiped out by her ancestors so she could be able to wear the Native American headdress without being deemed as a racist as she truly is




White people wishing they had hair like the people they oppress and pressure to have hair like them--the white people


A very ignorant white girl appropriating the sugar skull makeup



Lady Gaga being pathetic


White women not knowing what they're doing.


NIcki Minaj making sure these crackers stay in their lane

REMEMBER:


AFRICA IS NOT A COUNTRY. IT IS A CONTINENT FILLED WITH THOUSANDS OF DIFFERENT ETHNICITIES AND BELONG TO DIFFERENT TRIBES WITH DIFFERENT CULTURE.

maidensmothersandcrones asked: Sorry on regards to the mission thing, my cousin is a violinist and an African church group who he knew asked him to visit on his gap year for a few months to teach the kids to play and teach some English. Is that wrong? He wouldn't have gone it he wasn't specifically asked by that community.

I would say it’s wrong since they asked to teach them English, since during those times of colonialism and imperialism—especially that of the slave trade and slavery in Europe and the Americas—people from Africa were forced to abandon their culture traditions, language, and way of life to learn white culture, English as a first language, and be “more white”. 

I wouldn’t go to any other country to teach English. Six thousand languages are extinct because of the forced learning of English. I especially wouldn’t go to Africa to teach it, or even accept to go on a visit by an African church group.

Name: Keonna

Age: 19

Ethnicity: African American (Full)

Hello there my name is Keonna , I’m 19 years old living in San Francisco California. I am an African American Female and I am proud to be that. All my childhood I was called lucky and blessed to be light skinned by others saying that my skin was closer to ‘white’ which angers me than any other thing in the world. Yet I was called racial slurs by the age of 7 and told I didn’t belong. It’s sad and ignorant to tell a 7 year old African American Girl that her life was wasteful and I was nothing but a nigger. But my family reminded my that I’m not, I am a beautiful Strong woman who can overcome any obstacle. The moment I carried myself with grace and held my head high is when people started to give me respect. Also I am light skinned and my sister is Brownskinned so why do we get shocking reactions when we tell people were sisters? its Baffling, not every sibling is the same shade as each other its normal to take after your mother or father.

"Your black? You have to be mixed with something right?"

"Your pretty for a black girl."

"Your pretty to be black, but id never date a black chick."

I want to remind White Males, that to me THESE ARE NOT COMPLIMENTS AT ALL PLEASE STOP. If your not going to compliment me correctly don’t say shit to me please. These type of comments are so annoying and your trying to be funny when your not. I’ve received countless amount of backhanded compliments that its not even surprising just annoying and makes you look like a idiot. (sorry just ranting) its just frustrating having to go through petty things because people just say anything and the minute I say something back I get the whole “I have black friends too” “I’m not being racist, you are by stating that” Don’t back down the minute I come for your actions and puff out your chest acting like you know what your talking about. If a white woman has went through what I went through as child she’ll get ” aww I’m sorry you went through those things, but it’ll get better.” but for me “its life get over it”. ? I don’t like white people truly understand the concept of racism, and how being a WOC is different than being a white woman. As a WOC I have to work harder to prove I am worth something, and work twice as hard to prove I can become something in a world that doesn’t quite accept me and laughs at my culture (then takes it and say its high Fashion). As for a white woman you have endless amount of opportunities, doors are automatically open for you. But I still love my culture and I still love my people, we create dances, we can create our own style, people try to copy our music we get no credit from it but regardless my people are beautiful and I just love us. From our beautiful Chocolate to Caramel colored women to our Strong minded men.

lacouleurlapluschaude asked: Hello. First of all, thank you for this blog --as a white person I've learned a lot from of you. Now my question: is it wrong for a white person to try to imititate, say, Celts' or Vikings' hair? I know they didn't worn locks, so if someone wants to get their hair matted like the Celts did, would it be some kind of cultural appropriation? (Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish). Thank you again and have a nice day.

I don’t believe the Celts and Vikings eve had matted hair. They had plaited hair and braided hair, as evident in their art and sculpture. There are links in our FAQ if you want to learn more about that.

I doubt any one would purposefully destroy their hair by matting it.

slenderminion asked: I need your opinion on how I convince this girl in my school to stop trying to get dreads. While I am white as well, I realize how disgusting it is to take someone's culture. She just knots her hair up during class 24/7, and wants to add beads to it so she can 'connect with her black side'. It's awful to even look at tbh, and it's so offensive. There was a mixed girl who told her off but she said unless a 'real blackie' tells her why it's bad she won't stop. The school won't do anything either.

I would dump a bucket of mud on her, TBH. Maybe she’s just missing her home back at the swamp.

Then if I were to get called to the office, I would call her out there in front of whoever’s in charge so they would know, too. I would also bring papers for them to read if they don’t want to listen about how racist and disgusting this honky is.

If you don’t want to do the bucket thing, I would just keep going back and back and back to the principal and won’t let it rest.

a-prep-and-a-pony asked: Hello! (not sure if this has been answered already, please disregard if so) What is your opinion on people who go on mission trips? Specifically to "help" the people that have been living in those countries for thousands of years.

White people go to a place their people had and continue to ruin for the white savior complex. Third world countries are third world countries thanks to white people with their colonialism and imperialism. They confine to flock there everyday to keep that savior complex, just as their ancestors who came to “help the savages” or “help the heathens”.

Why can’t white people help out places in their community, state/providence, or country?? Why they gotta fly thousands of miles too look like a disgusting honky??

- Jess

There’s also plenty of ways to help people from your very own house. You don’t need to spend several thousands dollars to go to some place in Africa, Asia, or central/South America to help people. That’s neither effective or efficient. You can literally just donate to reputable charities/organizations that do help, help in the long term (not just your one semester or gap year), and like, are actually based in the community you are trying to help. -Joyce

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

KEEP POSTING I NEED TO KNOW! DONT STOP POSTING ABOUT THIS. IT IS NOT OVER!

The Jews of Ancient China —- The Kaifeng Jews

The destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Romans in 70 AD would create a wave of Jewish diaspora as Jewish rebels were sold into slavery or exiled to locations all over the Roman Empire.  However the spread of Jewish peoples would expand beyond the borders of the Roman world, as Jewish genes can be found all over Europe, Africa, and Asia.  One far flung Jewish community can be found in China, one of the most extreme examples of Jewish immigration in the ancient world.

After the Jewish revolt against Rome many thousands of Jews headed east to enjoy the wealth and riches of the Silk Road to Asia.  Jewish merchant communities sprang up all over Persia, Afghanistan, and Northern India.  One Jewish group traveled as far as Henan Province (Eastern China) and settled in the cosmopolitan city of Kaifeng between 600 – 900 AD.  By the year 1100 the Jews of Kaifeng had established a large and healthy community with a synagogue, communal kitchen, kosher slaughterhouse, ritual bath, and Sukkah (special building used to celebrate the festival of Sukkot).  During the Ming Dynasty the Kaifeng Jews took Chinese surnames which corresponded with the meanings of their original Jewish names.  One Kaifeng Jew, Zhao Yingcheng (Moshe Ben Abram) made his mark in Chinese history by being named the Director of the Ministry of Justice by the Emperor in the mid 1600’s. The religious traditions of the Kaifeng Jews remained the same through most of their history, corresponding exactly to the religious practices of Jews in the west.  However, in the 1860’s the community would be uprooted due to the chaos caused by the Taiping Rebellion.  The synagogue was destroyed and much of the ancient practices of the Kaifeng Jews were lost or forgotten.  The war caused a mini-diaspora of Chinese Jews as they sought refuge all over China.  After the war many Jews returned to Kaifeng to rebuild their community.  Today the Kaifeng Jews still maintain a small community with a rebuilt synagogue.  Today 1,000 Jews still maintain a prosperous community in Kaifeng.

“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”

and this is what the western news doesn’t show. Educated and Covered Muslim women are unimaginable for them.

Name: Nicollette

I’m from all over but I live in Florida. Half Jamaican, half Salvadoran and raising an even more mixed kid. When I first began to tell people I was pregnant as a teenager, they immediately attributed it to my race “Yeah, Spanish girls get pregnant easily” without even knowing anything else about me. They would tell me that I probably wouldn’t graduate high school, that I probably wouldn’t get into college, that my boyfriend wouldn’t help out with the kid, that I was throwing my future away, literally just anything to make me feel terrible about my situation. For a really long time while I was pregnant, I resented my situation. I never wanted children before and now I was going to have a kid at 15 years old. 

When he was born, I was still pretty ashamed of it. I’m proud now, almost 4 years later, but it took me a very long time to get over everything I had been told by (ex)friends, family and random strangers who thought it was their place to tell me how morally terrible I was for “getting myself pregnant” so young. Even today I still get stares when I’m out with my boyfriend and son, and he calls me “mommy”. I was told that my teenage pregnancy was inevitable because of my race multiple times by multiple people. 

It’s so ridiculous how deeply racism is embedded into people’s minds.
