Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?
If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.
Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation]or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.
basically i want a crime show that’s dedicated to exploring the ways gender, race, class, disability, and sexually are dealt with by the police force and the media. and is also interesting and has pretty cinematography and vampires maybe.
"It is popular among liberal Pakistanis to nostalgically invoke the more socially liberal Pakistan of the 1950s and 1960s as a country that was on the path to peaceful prosperity. They fondly recall a time before Pakistan was “The World’s Most Dangerous Nation,” when it was safe for memsahibs to wear bikinis – a time before conservative moral policing took kulchur hostage. Photographs of the era circulate widely among the country’s liberal social media community and in like-minded columns of many print publications. And, certainly, in as far as these images advocate for a more tolerant society, their circulation is welcome. However, the sentiment behind sharing them is sadly afflicted by the pervasive tendency of reducing contemporary Pakistan’s problems to religion, in particular, the idea that religiosity–Islamic religiosity–is at the root of our ills. Privileging this particular narrative of Islamization, such nostalgia invariably suffers from historical amnesia."
Once the East India Company acquired a large local source of funds in the form of land revenue, it was no longer necessary for Britain to pay for India’s textile exports in bullion and precious stones as it had so far done. It could now buy Indian textiles from the wealth that it extracted from Indians. Textiles for exports were bought from the huge amounts of land revenue that now accrued to the Company and its employees. It was now to be a one-sided flow of unrequited exports from India to Britain. It was to be spoken of by Indian nationalists as the ‘Economic Drain’ from India.
