Italian special force soldier after 72 hour battle in Afghanistan

School for black civil rights activists. Young girl being trained to not react to smoke blown in her face, 1960

Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capitol Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990.

A south Korean man cries as his brother is on a train back to North Korea. Separated by the war, they have not seen the other since 1950. They were allowed to see each other for three days, but one will go back spending life in luxury, and the other in hard labour

 The Mocambo night club in East Hollywood, a white’s only club, was the most popular dance spot around but would not book Ella because she was black. Marilyn, who adored Ella Fitzgerald and her music, called the manager and demanded that they book Ella immediately

Portrait of Istvan Reiner, taken shortly before he was killed in Auschwitz

Werfel, a 6 year old orphan from Austria has just been given his first pair of new shoes by the American Red Cross,1946.

The last Jew of Vinnitsa

Until the mid-60s, the Aboriginals came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aboriginal meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

I hope you guys learned and teared up from this as much as I did.

So CNN (the media) made many people believe that Missouri Highway Patrolman Captain Ron Johnson was throwing up “gang signs” in Ferguson. C’mon now—we have to demand and hold the media accountable for accurate information—next time you see a story regardless of the topic—be a critical thinker…not an emotional one.

Question reblogged from King Jaffe Joffer with 1,761 notes

Anonymous said: Brown receives no sympathy from me. He's just another thug who robs people and had the potential of becoming a serious offender. A waste of space. Yes i would say the same if he was white, blue or orange. Its not just because "he's black".

kingjaffejoffer:

You only typed 3 complete sentences yet you hit 3 different places on White Opinion Bingo: Ferguson Edition. That’s impressive.

You would have won if you’d have just kept typing for 10 more seconds. 

Lmaooooooo smh

So, allow me to put some shit into perspective…. I don’t think Michael Brown should be dead… Mainly because I don’t know what happened and from what it sounds like law enforcement fucked up. With that being said, all this tough and stupid talk about killing anyone, especially innocent family members of people you THINK are guilty is dumb as fuck… I have no respect for the feelings of anyone suggesting the innocent should die. But let’s examine some shit… About a month ago a couple of people posted a video in here showing a nigga gunning down another nigga while about 5 niggas just stepped over the body and kept it moving…. How come you niggas didn’t say, “He shot one of us?” You know why you didn’t….. Because you didn’t identify with that nigga…. Just like you niggas don’t identify with Michael Brown… But anytime a White man kills a Black man it’s explosive…. Now, I get the law enforcement piece… Trust me, I do. The police have been givin’ it to niggas from day one. However, were you niggas not outraged at the death of the Black man that niggas stepped over? I was, but a lot of you nigga have selective outrage and talk shit via the internet and you ain’t about to kill shit or let shit die. But I will tell you what you are going to do…. Continue sending your children to their schools, shopping at the grocery stores and buying gas to drive your cars… You are going to keep paying your mortgage/rent, car note, light bill and some moe’ shit and just like Trayvon Martin, the hoodies will be left hung up in the closet and your profile pic will go back to whatever it was 3 months prior. Watch.

A lot of you “Tumblr Activist” need to read this article. I have been yelling this for a long time now—98% of you are poorly informed—don’t think critically and will never be part of a real change.
