You blacks, Arabs and Indians have never invented anything, or made any useful contributions to civilization. Everything was created by us white people, which leads me to my first point: that you (or y'all, as you type it) would live in the stone age. Bye.

Remember when I said white women are just as dangerous and violent as white men.

Here’s your proof.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

Omar Khadr, a sixteen year old Guantanamo Bay detainee weeps uncontrollably, clutching at his face and hair as he calls out for his mother to save him from his torment. “Ya Ummi, Ya Ummi (Oh Mother, Oh Mother),” he wails repeatedly, hauntingly with each breath he takes.

The surveillance tapes, released by Khadr’s defence, show him left alone in an interrogation room for a “break” after he tried complaining to CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service) officers about his poor health due to insufficient medical attention. Ignoring his complaints and trying to get him to make false confessions, the officers get frustrated with the sixteen year old’s tears and tell him to get himself together by the time they come back from their break.

“You don’t care about me. Nobody cares about me,” he sobs to them.

The tapes show how the officers manipulated Khadr into thinking that they were helping him because they were also Canadian and how they taunted him with the prospect of home (Canada), (good) food, and familial reunion.

Khadr, a Canadian, was taken into US custody at the age of fifteen, tortured and refused medical attention because he wouldn’t attest to being a member of Al Qaeda, even though he was shot three times in the chest and had shrapnel embedded in his eyes and right shoulder. As a result, Khadr’s left eye is now permanently blind, the vision in his right eye is deteriorating, he develops severe pain in his right shoulder when the temperature drops, and he suffers from extreme nightmares.

He has been incarcerated at Guantanamo Bay since 2002, suffering extremely harsh interrogations and torture (methods), and is now 25 years old.

27 now, and still imprisoned

28 now.

…Slavery was a system of “corrective violence.” Colonialism was a system of “corrective violence.” Apartheid was a system of “corrective violence.” Jim Crow was a system of “corrective violence.” Reservations are a system of “corrective violence.” Deportation and detention centers are “corrective violence.” Correctional violence is violence performed by individuals who are representatives of the state (read white men); it is used to correct the non-state sanctioned violence performed by deviant bodies. The U.S. leads the world in number of prisons in operation and of citizens incarcerated. The U.S. legal, policing, and prison systems—justice systems—are systems of “correctional violence.” Black, Brown and Native men, and oftentimes Black, Brown and Native women are always deemed the deviant bodies in need of policing and correcting…

The history of racial violence in this country necessitates attention. It requires that we connect each gunned down Black man with each—raped woman of color, beaten and harassed Trans person, Muslim person called a terrorist and stripped of their civil rights, and every U.S. deportee. Race is a thing and an issue because it has been made that way by systems of corrective violence.

This isn’t news. Ebola wasn’t even on the CDC’s radar to cure until white Americans caught it. Africans have been dying from ebola for DECADES.
And it isn’t as if the strain of ebola is NEW or anything. This is the same strain that was discovered in 1976, and so far no further studies have been undertaken to find a cure or even a vaccine for the virus.
But two old crotchety white people catch it and suddenly it’s a goddamn race against time to find a cure.
But when Africans with no proper access to clean healthcare were dying by the hundreds, the CDC  AND WHO were content to let that shit rock. This is not fucking news.

I love how the news isn’t even making a big deal out of it. Like yes, two whit american’s are being cured. Then they will talk about the hundreds dying and thosand’s sickened in Africa.
Today on NPR a correspontant there was reporting that people in Liberia are afraid of the medical workers because of their gear and believe there is no cure.
Well no shit. Up until now we haven’t heard of one.
