"White slaves masters raped black women and turned their backs on their offspring. They are the original dead beat dads."
can you say Thomas Jefferson and everyone of his co signers of the declaration of so called independence. yeah independence for who ?
Not so fun fact: those signers were so hounded by the fact that they kept slaves that many of them bent over backwards to justify keeping slaves, including pointing out cranial structures and cultural differences. They were claiming black people to be subhuman so that they could claim they wanted freedom while still keeping slaves.
Fetishizers and racists love to argue that if you find someone sexually attractive, aesthetically pleasing, or have lust for them; you “are not racist”.
Quite the contrary, lusting someone because of a fetish means that you do not see them as human; merely a play you for your sexual fantasies. It is dehumanizing. The object of lust can easily be replaced by anyone who looks similar and their happiness is not needed as long as yours it guaranteed.
Usually when people ask how a racist can have sex with someone of another race I use this very example of the slave/master complex.

a friend of mine (who is a nurse) posted this a few minutes ago. i really wish conservative legislators would get their heads out of their asses and realize that sex ed is important (not abstinence only or abstinence plus—wtf?). Full on sex ed, including what consent means and what it doesn’t mean. Our kids are going to have sex anyway. Obviously. But maybe then all girls with vaginas will know the difference between their urethra and vagina and not be ashamed to know about those parts.

"You’re told that you’re in your head too much, a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. Or maybe there’s another word for such people: thinkers."
this line just really means a lot to me.

Oyster: The Netflix of books
Hey so I already have around 300 physical books in my apartment (and about the same number in digital form) I haven’t read yet, not to mention that I don’t have the extra $, but I’m pretty sure you all can handle the flailing about this in my stead.
