i havent rly taken any fuego/zamn selfies so far this year ..so here are 7 random 1s of me with short hair. but different aesthetics tbh. from 2k14. god bless
The identity crisis I’ve experienced in Canada is like no other.
In Italy, I was considered a dirty Balkan who just needed to go back home. Even though I was born there & my family was the one that came as refugees. As if there’s something wrong with running away from war.
In Croatia, I wasn’t really considered a full Croat because I had an “Italian” upbringing. LOL, my parents were very much Balkan in every single possible way.
And now here in Canada, the colorist perspective is what counts. So, white, black, brown and asian (the oversimplification of all identities plus the inherently oppressive white identity)
Now, when I came here, people really didn’t understand where to place me in those categories as I am pale, but I am olive and I am also - in their words- “exotic” or overtly “ethnic”. So it’s never been about me. I reject whiteness with every fiber of my being along with understanding that having the skin I have & being white passing allows me to have a pretty heavy white privilege.
Yet, others have identified me as brown. Some as “white-brown”.
I’d find it weird if I claimed brownness, because I’d have to see if people who are close to me ethnically claim the same. Like, Turkish people, Armenians and Greeks.
It’s really up to context and who’s claiming us as what, along with self-identification.
I’d classify myself as Balkan, lmfao.
Everybody else in this fuckin’ town is fallin’ in love and gettin’ engaged and havin’ babies
This scene was so fucking overdue especially with how they’ve been treating Lafayette these past few seasons.
I felt this scene in my bones.
"Men aren’t meant to be monogamous."
"Cheating is natural behavior."
"But I don’t love those other hoes. It was just sex."
"Men are supposed to spread their seed."
The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland
At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.
The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.
never read the fucking comments
For all the Irish folks always crying about how Irish people were ~*~*~ALSO OPPRESSED~*~*~
