The day was a massive success with over 150 new contacts, 6 new sign-ups to the party and new people to the first meeting, on a Friday of Freshers week no less!   And with coach tickets to #Demo2012 now on sale this year is going to be siiiiick!

This is a resource post for all the Good White Persons out there. You know, the ones who say things like “It’s not my fault I’m white! Don’t generalize white people!”, or “I’m appreciating your culture! You should be proud!”, or “Why do you hate all white people, look I’m a special snowflake who’s not racist give me an award for meeting the minimum requirements for being a decent human being”.

Well, if you are actually interested in understanding racism and how it ties into cultural appropriation, please read instead of endlessly badgering PoCs on tumblr with your cliched, unoriginal arguments and repeating the same questions over and over.

On White Privilege
aka don’t blame me just because I’m white:

On Reverse Racism
aka you are being racist against white people:

On Cultural Appropriation
aka I’m just appreciating your culture:

Assorted Vials of White Tears and Miscellaneous Antidotes
aka I can’t change that I’m white/not all whites are racist/we are all humans:

Okay. I agree. I’ve been socially conditioned not to notice racism and recognize my privilege. What can I do?

I don’t care about this bullshit; you’re making a big deal out of nothing, go home and delete your blog:

Original artwork, my sculptural rendition of it, and the final poster of it.

I always get a sickly feeling when people talk about things being inspirational or motivational.  Can’t that wait until after the revolution?  Until then I’d rather see everybody fucking angry and disgusted.  That should be all the motivation you need, not some wanker in a suit throwing catchphrases at you.

It is not consciousness of men that determines their being, but, on the contrary, their social being that determines their consciousness.

Karl Marx (via m-paoword)

Force is the only solution open to capital; the accumulation of capital, seen as a historical process, employs force as a permanent weapon

Rosa Luxemburg (via quotemarx)

And I saw a pale horse, and the name of him who sat upon it was Death, and Sheol joined him and authority was given to him over a fourth of The Earth to kill with the sword, with starvation, with Death, and by the animals of The Earth.
