#racist#metromartha decided she wanted to #attack#spit on, #hit an Asian woman with her umbrella, use a #racial slur, berate her with profanity, then use her #whiteprivilege to get away with it by calling the cops. Mind you the woman #metromartha attacked was minding her business on her way to work on the train. @edy_revolution_peacelove_12 gave her the name.

Even in the education system. There's so much hidden/left out that, when revealed, explains -- 1. Why some black people hate all white people (even if they are wrongly projecting justified anger that should be for racist institutions)
2. Why #whiteprivilege exists, and why the abolishment of #slavery didn't change much
3. Why people who claim to not see color are simply ignorant of both history and current affairs, not color blind.

One aspect of my work that's vital to me is citing sources and providing proper credit for the research, development and facts I share in my #unpackyourprivilege workshops. In this field of racial justice, all work today is derivative, and I've made it part of one of my essential values of integrity, to be able to credit my sources as well as develop my processes and models for my work and how and whom I'm inspired.
As a holistic counselling student in training, the cross sections of books and research I study involve how racism shows up in the field of counselling and therapy alongside how racism shows up in academia and my industries - spirituality, wellness, entrepreneurship and conscious business.

There is a bit of a controversy around what White Privilege is, especially among those that are white and middle class or disenfranchised. However, the fact of the matter is white privilege is a thing. It is not about money even though money plays a very big role in it. White privilege simply is that it is much easier and more likely for white people to have access to good education. Due the fact that during the boom in real estate people of color were denied the right to buy houses in good areas with a good school system. This created a type of reservation, similar to the the Native American "reservations". The areas that black people would be allowed to live in would not have the funds or resources to provide a good education to their children. Because of this these children would go into crime because what else were they suppose to do? So instead of being able to focus on an education black children would get wrapped up in trying to survive instead of working toward academic success. And these crime organizations were and are always lead by white people.

This is the video I referenced in my prior post. ******* Repost from @ampharris using @RepostRegramApp - Such patience from these really trained officers 👮♀️. Who said that cops don’t respect citizens🤔🤔😳😳”you may not tell me what to do”. I like this parent putting them in their place talking to them like they are her kids. The HUGE problem is, if this was a “Black or Brown person” they would have been body slammed, choked, maybe shoot and hauled off to jail for all types of trumped up charges. This is #WhitePrivilege 101 at its best. This parent #CarenTurner needs to be interviewed about this interaction. By the way, she retired from her job as a ethics official in New Jersey.

Guys I’m fucking fuming ! I said a few years back to coworkers that the belief of #whiteprivilege would breed racism and guess what it did. Kids don’t see race like that ;it is learned from the parents that support that shit. I’m not too emotional but this is kicking my ass rn😭 #gayrepublican#gayguy#republican#wakeup#woke
Abraham Lincoln was a proud racist and he was still was hated by his peers... #smh
Here's a quote from Abraham Lincoln.... “I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races … I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.” -Abraham Lincoln

Rest in power to jazz legend Nancy Wilson, who has passed away at the age of 81. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After signing with Capitol Records, Wilson made her debut in 1961 with the single "Guess Who I Saw Today." She also used her platform to advocate for civil rights, telling the blog Jazz Wax in 2010: "As an artist then, taking such a political stand came with professional risks. But it had to be done."
In doing so, Wilson dedicated her life to activism. For her lifelong work, which included participating in the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery marches, Wilson received an N.A.A.C.P. Hall of Fame Image Award and was later inducted into the International Civil Rights: Walk of Fame at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.
Over the course of her 50-year career, Wilson, who had no formal training, released over 70 albums and won three Grammy Awards. She won her first Grammy for Best Rhythm and Blues Recording for her 1964 album “How Glad I Am." Her other two were for Best Jazz Vocal Album, in which she won in 2005 and 2007. She also hosted her own Emmy-winning variety series for NBC ("The Nancy Wilson Show") and appeared on several television shows, including "The Cosby Show” (swipe left to see her on an episode). #nancywilson#becauseofthemwecan
The Justice system has been broken ever since you could get away with killing black people! Or when they gave 14 year old George Stinney the electric chair in the 50's because a white girl was killed and raped by white men but they found a black kid to blame it on. The statistics for the rate of black people going to prison for the same crimes as whites are mind boggling! If this guy was black he would be in a state penitentiary right now getting fucked with because rapist and child molesters are considered as nothing. #whiteprivilege#judahonthecomeup#justice#nojustice

I hope they beat you in this competition. Miss Universe represents a global phenom, not just a country..

The white one loved his mother
The black man was a thug
The white one had a future
The black man he had none
The white one was a loner
The black man was real bad
The white one had real problems
That poor ol' lonely lad
The white one was a sports star
A veritable champ
The black man he had nothin'
Hadn't even read Mein Kampf
The white one showed no sorrow
The black man showed no gun
The whitest skin that choked him
Made sure he came undone
The black man wasn't guilty
He simply couldn't breathe
The white one was just different
Because he was "supreme"
The white one stalked and murdered
In keeping with his scheme
The black man wasn't breathing
Which meant he couldn't scream
The black man lost his family
No going back in time
The white one shot and carried on
Until he'd murdered nine
They bundled up the white one
And put him in a car
The black man didn't stand a chance
Because they'd stopped his heart
The white one is in prison
The black man in a poem
Until love is one colour
I'll write in monochrome.
I grew up in a diverse city, full of culture.
I grew up in Italian culture at home. They call South Florida a melting pot for a reason.
I grew up in poverty and forged my way through it as a teenager on her own.
For a long time, I didn’t understand white privilege, because I never grew up with any privilege of my own.
People kept telling me to rally my people, because white women were the ones that voted Trump.
I just kept thinking, “My people?”
“Those people are not my people.”
But as I watch followers slip away the more I open my mouth, I see they are the privileged white women everyone was telling me about.
The ones reaching out for coffee.
The ones I have passed to fit in as.
It’s sad we live in a world where we tune out truth and reality because we don’t want to hear it.
I hope you stick around and we can learn together, but I understand if you can’t stomach sugar-free advocacy and feminism.
It’s a hard pill to swallow when we are faced with acknowledging the truth about reality and ourselves.
Yes, I have lived a tough life. One you wouldn’t recognize if you met me.
No matter how hard my life has been, no matter my level of poverty, I experienced it as a white girl and eventually a white woman.
When cops came into my apartment illegally expecting to find drug addicts, they found a frail white teenager looking back at them and reacted accordingly.
They apologized and asked if I needed any help.
Hello, I’m white and privileged.
Most #AfricanDiaspora , #PeopleOfColor and #IndigenousTribes will tell you that the #WarOnTruth is not a new thing. The war on truth is the documented reality of the propaganda that has been spread surrounding black, brown, red and other people of color worldwide. As a member of the African Diaspora it's been really interesting watching the American media industry fight back against 45 and GOP attacks on what it considers truth and it's journalists integrity. I applaud and encourage each of these people/groups in their continued work. Yet, I can't help but find it ironic that at this day and time journalism integrity is so important after a history of the propaganda that the American Media has written about people of color and the African diaspora.
If @time was truly interested in fighting the #WarOnTruth it would stop publishing #WhitePrivilege propaganda and start publishing an unbiased account of international news regarding people of color.
But in spite of the efforts and sacrifices of these tireless and dedicated people I doubt that Time Magazine is really truely ready to embrace and encourage #TruthInJournalism because to do so it would first be required to admit to the propaganda in it's own history. And I seriously doubt time magazine is ready to admit that they are part of the problem.
#HypocriticalTime#IdaBWellBarnett#Time magazine is printing four covers for its "#PersonOfTheYear " issue, featuring (clockwise from top left) slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, members of the Capital Gazette news organization, Rappler news site chief Maria Ressa, and Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo
It can feel like that!! Ironically, I've come to this way of life not just for the planet and my morals, but also for my wallet. Yes, fair trade prices feel so expensive when we are used to fast fashion prices! I don't think it's fair to ask fair trade companies to lower their prices to meet what fast fashion offers ... Ethical production costs money. Instead, we can adjust our cultural attitudes about HOW MUCH we need. The per day cost of a dress you wear over and over for a long time is affordable and if society judges you, dare them to have that conversation with you.
