Power Structure of Oppression

Yes. Yes. YES. 

I’m just gonna leave this here, in case anyone thought their fee fees were more important than systematic oppression 

I will honestly reblog this every time it comes across my dash. It is so important. 

important to also include that things such as colonialism and appropriation (indian halloween costumes, bindis, white dreadlocks), fetishisation (yellow fever, “pale blogs”, "they have such large/small dicks”, “good at sports”), and disproportionate incarceration (particularly relevant in Australia), rehistorising and erasure (holocaust denial, talking about stonewall riots without mentioning the trans poc), essentialism and binarism (terfs, hetronormativity, bi-erasure), Abelism (not investing in accessible public infrastructure, parking in disabled bays)
also seeing racism as purely “White on Black” is an extreme earisure and dangerous attitue as it ignores the mulptilicity and pervasive nature racially grounded power differentials that have existed throughout history and continue to this day examples including:Japan on ChinaArab on africa (slave trade, genocide)English on Irish (potato famine was genocide)Serb-Croat-Muslim (not entirely sure about this area but there have been genocides in multiple directions I think)Anti-SemitismIsrael on PalestineIsrael as a colonial entity/apartheid state (ambiguous given it as a response to the holocaust and historical ties to the area but definitely problematic)Europe on SlavThe Roma (gypsy is an ethnic slur) Japan on polynesiaEngland on chinaHan Chinese on XhingurChina against TibetansHindu ethnic groups and Islamic ethnic groups in India (both ways, complex)Aztecs, Mayans, Incas on neighbouring tribesSpain on South AmericaWhite colonials on North Americans

and like using liberation movements to enact alternate oppressions like white women using womens lib as a vehicle for anti-islamic racial judgement or like attacking “urban culture ” for being mysogynistic (or saying “urban” when you mean black to hide your intolerance) or like feigning religious oppression to subjugate certain types of bodies (abortion/birth control/hormones/genital surgery), pretending MRA isn’t a misogynist butt-hole club, pretending feminism is a “Girls only” movement,  ”cutesy” or “blokey” hate.

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
