This is NOT the caption I want to see when I’m reading up on world news pertaining to Black Women.
Yes, you are stealing our subculture and erasing Black Women from it. Don’t pretend you’re innocent and blame less because you are fighting for your rights as well. You can still perpetuate white supremacy.

This entire article reads as “You shouldn’t be chastising us for our wrongs, but thanking us for them instead because we can help you and you need to be grateful for that…As we steal your culture. “

I love how much their white privilege is showing!! They really don’t understand how different our experiences actually are… you’d think they know what an allie is but guess not…

Our allies how? Where? By wearing us like we’re some sort of super suit they put on to feel brave and confident. Get the hell out of here

Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today.

Elephant Raju Cries After Being Rescued From 50 Years Of Suffering In Chains 

This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.

The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.
