Every black child in grade school is taught Adolph Hitler killed six million Jews and is the worst human being that ever lived. On the other hand our children are taught “The Right Honorable” Cecil Rhodes the founder of the De Beer diamond company in South Africa who killed ten times that number of Africans is a hero and a statesman and if they study hard and do well in school they may be eligible to win Rhodes Scholarships the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world. They don’t mention the scholarships are paid for with the blood of their ancestors.

Holy shit I never knew that about the Rhodes Scholarship

take note

History Lesson

Holy shit, that’s the history behind the Rhodes Scholarship?

Cecil Rhodes was arguably the most vile imperialist next to King Leopold, its no secret as to why their atrocities are rarely discussed, U.S President Chester Arthur supported Leopold

I combined only a few of the fucked up comments I found on this Facebook post. If this gets ignored, I’m gonna be pretty pissed. And no, I did not edit out the names, because these people are little shits.

I am so fucking mad

I was hopeful, and then read the comments and lost it. But then Gandhi came and said “You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean, if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” If I know,and you know, and we tell everyone we know and then they tell. We keep the ocean clean. And on a less metaphorical level- let’s keep the actual ocean clean too, please. We can start by NOT BUYING WATER BOTTLES and maybe TAKING SHORTER SHOWERS.

We’ve been taught a woman’s body will cause men to sin. We’re told that if a woman shows too much of her body men will do stupid things. Let’s be clear: A woman’s body is not dangerous to you. Her body will not cause you harm. It will not make you do stupid things. If you do stupid things, it is because you chose to do stupid things.

In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan completely devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The death toll is estimated up to 10,000 with hundreds of thousands more displaced. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”

Don’t hang out with people who don’t love you. Don’t try to impress people who aren’t worth it. Don’t try to win people over who aren’t worth it. Focus on yourself, and focus on the people who are really awesome and who love you. Don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit. Don’t spend your energy on them. There is so much pressure to be part of the right thing: well, you should create the right thing. If you don’t see it, create it. If you don’t see what you want, be the change you want to see.
