"Abeed" or "3abeed" is an arabic word is a word for slave. Many Arabs, including Arab-Americans, regularly use this word to refer to black Americans. #DropTheAWord is challenging arabs to drop the "a-word" from their vocabulary.

Adoon, akata and kallu* are all similarly deragatory words used by Somalis, Nigerians and Desis respectively.

There’s this post about how if your feminism doesn’t include destroying racism it’s white supremacy.
This is why it’s white supremacy. Like yeah Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a man, but he’s also a man of color. Gloating about how Lucy, a film where a white woman who’s shown to be shooting men of color for not speaking English in a country where English isn’t widely spoken… isn’t intersectional feminism. Instead it’s the essence of white feminism because it’s glorifying the white hero in a non white country, when we are less than a century away from white Europe having colonized the majority of what is now referred as “third world countries” make no mistake colonialism is not dead. So basically if you see Lucy in the theater unfollow me rn.
Boycott Lucy, watch Hercules.

How many of you have heard Latasha Harlins?
*everyone is silent*

She was killed by Korean store owner Soon Ja Du, which set off the LA Riots. Ice Cube did a song about her called Black Korea, predicting that riot in fact. Some of us know. And no, I didn’t have to look her up. I remember. I read the Final Call.

She was murdered over a damn bottle of orange juice that store owner thought she was going to steal. There were eye witnesses and security camera footage.
The store owner still got no jail time! 
It’s not just an inconvenience to be followed around the store. You can be murdered if the store clerk decides to stand their ground.  If you’ve been followed around a store before, let Harlins tragedy serve as a reminder of why you shouldn’t go back.
Don’t spend money where you are not welcomed!

Shoutout to people who actually take the time to teach and spread the word instead of gate keeping to look superior.

damn. this was not in the mediaaa.

Important things to know as well:
1) Latasha Harlins was going to pay for the bottle of orange juice, it was Soon Ja Du who physically accosted her. After a physical altercation, Latasha put the bottle of orange juice down and turned to leave the store, at which point Soon shot Latasha with her back turned
2) Soon was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter by the jury, but was given probation, community service, and a $500 fine by the judge. At her court hearing, the white judge deployed the model minority ideology in his leniency on Soon, using the narrative that her actions were justified. 
"Judge Karlin characterizes Du Soon Ja as a successful shopkeeper and by implication Karlin presents the Korean community as a successful "model-minority." This presentation thus provides Judge Karlin with an ideological framework to both distance herself from Latasha Harlins individually, and also more generally to absolve non-Blacks .. of any social responsibility for the effects of racial subordination upon African Americans."[x]
3) What happened to Latasha is a crime that everyone should know about, but Asian Americans interested in racial justice must especially know if we are to confront the true evils of having the model minority labeled onto us and of buying into the model minority logic ourselves.

Once a west African girl told me that Jamaicans stole the idea of eating plantains from African people.

Like…….

She said

as if the first black people living in Jamaica were not African

white people really want to make everything about class and keep the conversation there. 

omg yes. I dont understand how they stop their analysis there though… So race and class arent connected huh? No? We dont like that? No? oh ok sorry. lets talk about nutella.

This is almost every single conversation I’ve had with white anarchists, revolutionaries, leftists, or whatever the fuck they want to call themselves. Everything is a class issue and nothing is about race. And when it is about race, it’s actually about class.

 Like literally our entire economic system is built on the subjugation and denigration of the black body and erasure of the Native one. Even if you want to center class, you cant do it without talking about race. Because the class system was built on a strict hierarchy, apportioning land/wealth/ and human rights based on divisions and strict categories of race. Categories used to dehumanize people based on race in an ideological system, set up to fuel an economic one— to  kill them, use their labor, destabilize their communities, take their land and resources, and appropriate their lives in service of colonialism and capitalism.
