Yes, we’ll lose some lives! Damn it, I might be the first to die! But so what? It’s the price of freedom. You just want to quote freedom! You just want to talk revolution! But you don’t want to walk the walk when it’s time to walk the walk!

Anonymous asked: Did you know that black men had the right to vote before white women did?

Yes. And did you know that White women suffrage leaders demonized Black people and other PoC in order to get their right to vote?

"It is not fair that a plantation Negro who can neither read or write should be entrusted with the ballot."  -Frances E. Willard, president of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.

"In Colorado… 6,666 men vote "Yes." Now, I am going to describe the men who voted "Yes." They were native-born men, temperance men, cultivated, broad, generous, just men, men who think. On the other hand, 16,007 voted "No." Now, I am going to describe that class of voters. In the southern part of that State are Mexicans, who speak the Spanish language… . The vast population of Colorado is made up of that class of people. I was sent out to speak in a voting precinct having 200 voters; 150 of those voters were Mexican greasers, 40 of them foreign-born citizens, and just 10 of them were born in this country; and I was supposed to be competent to convert those men to let me have so much right in this Government as they had.” -Susan B. Anthony

Go on and look up your white fem faves. They oppressed other groups in order to get up from their oppression. Stepping on the backs of PoC in order to stand up. And i’m supposed to be sympathetic to your “plight?!” Like dude, you mad at me for the patriarchy that oppressed your people and mine? Get real.

Oh! And did you know that White women were freed from slavery before Black… Oh….. wait…….

And if we’re talking about Blacks and “voting rights” did ya know that it was damn hella hard for Blacks to vote even when they got the right? Ignoring the expensive polling taxes and the rallies of Whites who threatened and attacked Blacks who attempted to vote… did you know that Blacks were disproportionately administered (among poor whites and other poc) impossible literacy tests in order to get this “vote”?

Here is a sample of this simple and easy test. 10 minutes. Get NOTHING wrong. Go go!

Times up. How was it? Easy I bet. Each question made at a total 5th grad level so I’m sure you got them all right. But oops, doesn’t matter. As I am the one correcting your test I decide if you failed or not even if you, somehow, managed to get all of these correct in the 10 minutes provided to you, Negro.

Could also go into how racist laws put up to keep predominately Black people from voting, which were outlawed to protect Black voters, are now being allowed again so they can oppress them once more…could go into all that… but that would be a longer post.

In the meantime

Part of the rhetoric white feminists used to support the 19th amendment was the idea that they’d vote in line with their white husbands thereby consolidating white supremacy. Due to the idea that Black men were barbarians and irrational and were going to ruin the country by being able to vote.

And in reality, Black people in mass couldn’t really vote till the Civil Rights Act and even today voter suppression attacks POC, but specifically African Americans. Whereas white women have never had an issue voting after the 19th amendment. So in actuality they got the vote first. And used their vote to oppress Black women and men.

Court publicly shames Ohio man for bullying disabled children

Residents of South Euclid, Ohio, were treated to a curious sight this Sunday when they came across a man sitting at a street corner with a huge sign: “I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in.”
The man in question, Edmond Aviv, 62, had been found guilty in court of harassing his neighbors for 15 years. According to Sandra Prugh, his neighbor, Aviv had been targeting her adopted children with abuse: several of them happened to be black, and some had developmental disorders, physical disabilities or both.
