All This and Heaven Too
Florence + The Machine - All This and Heaven Too
The outro is still so magnificent. Pure poetry.
"When people say ‘I hate math’ what you’re really saying is, ‘I hate the way mathematics was taught to me.’ Imagine an art class, in which, they teach you only how to paint a fence or wall, but never show you the paintings of the great masters. Then, of course, years later you would say, ‘I hate art.’ What you would really be saying is ‘I hate painting the fence.’ And so it is with math. When people say ‘I hate math’ what they are really saying is ‘I hate painting the fence.’"- UC Berkeley math professor Edward Frenkel (via ryanandmath)
… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.
More like you morons completely forget your ancestors did the same damn shit and then try to change the definition of words to exempt yourself from criticism.
Yes because PoC have set up a system where People of Color have ~poc privilege~, don’t confuse “racism” and “prejudice”.
Actually yes they have.
Mayans and Aztecs weren’t carving people’s hearts outs of their chests for the gods.
The Mongols killing at least 30,000,000 people?
Along with Mao and his death toll
Armenian genocide at the hands of the Turkish?
Japanese Empire raping, killing, and looting all over the Pacific?
Native Americans being tribes of warrior societies who constantly fought each other?
Iroquois tribes being imperialistic land grabbing machines of brutality?
Yuan-Ming dynasty transition?
Qing conquering of the Ming dynasty?
An Lushan Rebellion? .
Somalian Civil War?
Nigerian Civil War?
Nairobi Mall attack?
Don’t forget that other countries besides America exist, and damn sure don’t change the definition of fucking words, you dumb cunt.
Well look at that.
The weirdest thing about all of this stuff is they seem to think prejudice is fine. Diet racism. Racism lite. Skim racism.
This is how racist Tumblr is.
Not only do they have such an Americanized view of history and the world but they apply it to everything, where the world thing ever in the world was the white people claiming First Nation’s land and enslaving Africans (and yes, those are awful things, but other nations have done similar).
Not only that, they act like if you aren’t white, you were fucking helpless little lambs for all of history, incapable of evil, brutality or violence. They’re treating entire ethnic groups like children, free of responsibility because of their skin color. Only white people are apparently ‘worthy’ enough respect to be judged by their actions.
