This man has a name. His name is Frank Embree.
He was falsely accused of raping a 14-year-old white girl.
Embree maintained his innocence but confessed after receiving over 100 lashes.
With tears pouring down his face, he agreed to own up to the charges if the police agreed not to torture him any further.
He was castrated, skinned (front and back), lynched and burned alive in front of a cheering crowd on July 23, 1889.
If you are American this is your history, don’t ignore it. Make sure that you make up for it by changing America today.
Thats the wrong tomb stone and his name was James Embree
and here is more of an idea of what this means
And it all happened in Fayette Missouri ….

The hardest thing ever is being a woman of color with dark skin and hair and dating a white man who has a thing for lightly tanned blonde girls.
it makes me want to shave off my skin and be white. it makes me want to lighten my skin and relax my hair and bleach it blonde. he says he likes the way i look but i feel shitty when he checks out other girls and makes a point to still be into this girl who is tall blonde pale super fit and rich, where im over here from struggle, im short, ive got dark skin and hair wear glasses and ugh i feel like so shitty i dont know what to do.
i just really hate myself because he talks so sweetly to these white chicks but hes never talked that way to me. he says he loves me and i know for a fact that he hasnt cheated but still i feel pretty miserable about how I look because I know what “hes into”. it feels like hes cheated it hurts so much
it just hurts so much i feel like crying all the time
why is this so damn hard?
sometimes i think my boyfriend would think i was prettier if i was a white girl with blonde hair. he always gushes over these blonde chicks and thinks that they are so beautiful and here i am with dark skin and black hair who is short and shit. its like how the fuck is that supposed to make me feel?
映画『ハーフ』予告編 Hafu: the mixed-race experience in Japan [Official Trailer]
Has anyone seen this? I haven’t but i’d really like to. I really feel like people need to recognize the fact that Japan isn’t this exclusively closed off country, that conforms to the West’s delusional beliefs that we are “conservative”, “quiet”, and “meek”.
This high lights the lives of many different people: an Australian / Japanese, Venezuelan / Japanese, Korean / Japanese (important to me). Mexican / Japanese, and a Ghanian / Japanese person.
I really hope that this film was well made and has a good message. At any rate, it’s extremely important to convey to people - both our own people and to foreigners under terrible misconceptions - that Japan is an ever changing nation.
How often I hear “How are you Japanese and Korean? DON’T THEY HATE EACH OTHER?!?!?!!?!” really reminds me how incredibly uninformed others are about our country, our culture and our people.
Again, I haven’t watched this yet. But it looks good.
What do you guys think.
The Stone of Coyolxauhqui
Coyolxauhqui, is a Mexican goddess moon in Nahuatl mythology,
Coyolxauhqui was the daughter of the mother goddess Coatlicue and the ruler of the CentzonHuitznáhuac.
Is represented as a dismembered woman.
this is her myth:
The pregnancy of Coatlicue, the maternal Earth deity, made her other children embarrassed, including her oldest daughter, Coyolxauhqui.
As she swept the temple, a few hummingbird feathers fell into her chest. Coatlicue’s child, Huitzilopochtli, sprang from her womb in full war armor and killed Coyolxauhqui, along with their 400 brothers and sisters. He cut off her limbs, then tossed her head into the sky where it became the moon, so that his mother would be comforted in seeing her daughter in the sky every night.
….and I thought the vikings were the crazy ones ._.
