western civilization European history?
The idea that "Western civilization" is somehow tied to "whiteness" is intentional in removing people of color from our role in history. The concept of race based on skin tones wasn't an idea in roman times. That's why Septimius Serverus wasn't seen by his people as a "black african emperor married to a brown syrian woman" but just naturally seen as a "Roman Emperor". Thinking of greek/roman culture as a white society is just factually incorrect, there were tons of people of color who were just as important and as much of the society as those with light skin. There's also the failure to realize that the Roman Empire would conquer areas and then the people were seen to be just as much part of "roman" society as others, many african and "middle eastern" traditions, arts, music, etc. were combined with those of rome/greek traditions. Looking at this map it's hard to think that all the people in the confines of the roman empire were somehow white?
As someone who was harassed via screenshotting I want to make something clear:
Screenshot dunking is when you take a screenshot of someones post for the direct purpose of mocking them and making them a spectacle
Screenshot dunking is NOT screenshotting bigoted assholes or bullies for evidence of their said harassment and using it to warn people that someone is bad
meta, racism, white indifference
this is directed at a lot of the "bigger" accounts, specifically those who know what i'm talking bout.. like i get not wanting to be involved in what took place today (though it's not just today it's a culmination and layers over time) and saying "w/e drama, it'll blow over." but nah. like. if you're just gonna let the let it go and absolve those who were defending racists, have frequently gaslighted those criticizing them, if you're gonna be silent on it, then tbh youre part of the problem and if you're quicker to defend that party, you got some shit in yourself to decolonize and work on. Call out this shit when you see it happening. idc what ur connection to the person is. Don't take a backseat to it just because you're comfortable where you are. This is why I've gotten in so many fights with white supremacists in public spaces. Because no one stands up against it, and so as a person of color I am forced to. Don't be complicit, don't be an accomplice.
Ha, I mean... nobody has apologized to me for being right about the Jovan situation.
If people say they reached out to me to try and work it out, they are lying.
People just want to play the victim because they came at us with a closed fist, missed, and got slapped instead.
Ha, people wanna play games, but suck at them. That's funny.
