Women of the KKK, 1923.
No one can honestly tell me that this isn’t something that looks like it is straight out of the demonic mind of a scary movie producer. Sadly, it’s not. This is a real photograph taken of the female KKK members in 1923 ( just incase you thought white women were innocent ). As I stare at this picture my heart mourns for every strong POC, no not just those of African diaspora because we all know the KKK despises all us POC, they lived during the arguably the worst time for POC in America. They had no laws that could protect them or even had the chance to defend themselves in court like what we are rightfully and deservingly given today. Take a moment to pray (whatever your religion) for the souls of those affected by pre desegregation. Take a moment to thank those who lost their sons, daughters, Etc in the fight to be able to walk outside in broad daylight and not get lynched. Will racism ever end? I don’t know, but what I do know is that no one should have to put up with it as an every day nightmare. No matter what your ethnicity is we MUST stick together, for together we are strong. I dream of a day these people may never hurt our children.

this shit looks like american horror story
it was the black american horror story
My alma mater, Smith College, had a chapter of the KKK until the 1930s, thought we generally pretend it wasn’t the case. The myth of white female innocence with regards to systemic racial oppression is so pervasive it’s ridiculous.
white women are not and have never been passive victims of the white supremacist patriarchy, they are active enforcers of racial oppression as means of holding shared privilege with their white male counterparts
What I been saying tho.
Thank you! White women might be worse for WoC than white men. They have always been very clear about where they stand.
women play a huge role in maintaining white supremacy esp in orgs like kkk. they are to birth the next generation of white supremacists. that is a position of status and power. so much about reproductive choice, health “justice” that white sexologist refuse to engage. are we surprised laws were created to protect them over all other women, to this day, in the US? the book women of the klan gives some deeper insight if interested.
you can participate in white supremacy regardless of your gender
White women are not innocent, they’re just as dangerous and violent as their white men.
“white women are not and have never been passive victims of the white supremacist patriarchy, they are active enforcers of racial oppression as means of holding shared privilege with their white male counterparts”
that had to get reloaded, coz that was perfectly summed up. I’ve been side-eyeing a lot of them.
Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week.
This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”
ok literally who is this guy???? this kind of talent needs to be recognized and regarded far more than just this photoset. i need to find out who this person is bc it’s only fair to them to get some recognition.
marina and the diamonds is applauded for singing about being a heartbreaker but when I’m a heartbreaker I’m called “a terrible surgeon” and “a murderer, probably”

my fall look today is winged eyeliner, plum lipstick, and a look on my face like i’m fucking your boyfriend and can’t wait for you to find out.
My fall look is simple liner with bold lashes, burgundy lipstick, a gleam in my eyes that let’s men know that I’ll suck their dick, their money out of their bank accounts, and the souls right out of their bodies.
