A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints. 
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare. 

White History

Abducted by aliens.

Smh

White history

I really want to know who these people are/what happened to them

SO I DID A BIT OF DIGGING AND HOLY SHIT. THE SELK’HAM PEOPLE WERE WIPED OUT IN A MASS GENOCIDE.
LIKE… THEY ARE NO MORE. THE DESCENDENTS OF THIS COUPLE DO NOT EXIST.
AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE. AN ENTIRE CUISINE. AN ENTIRE WAY OF LIFE. WIPED AWAY.
YA’LL WANT SOME FUCKING WHITE HISTORY MONTH? HERE IS SOME GOD DAMN WHITE HISTORY FOR YOU TO PUT NEXT TO ALL THOSE SHINNY IMAGES OF THESE WHITE MEN WHO “DISCOVERED THE WORLD”.
HANG THIS IMAGE IN ALL THE DAMN CLASSROOMS. I’M DONE.

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

Free Sundiata Acoli!
Political prisoner Sundiata Acoli, aka Clark Edward Squire, is scheduled to be released on parole after spending more than 40 years in a New Jersey maximum security prison. A New Jersey state appeals court explained in a 28-page ruling on Sept. 29 that the state parole board had dismissed evidence favorable to Acoli and given undue consideration to past events, including a prior probation “violation.” The court also cited positive psychological test results.
The state attorney general’s office announced plans to seek a stay of the ruling on behalf of the state police. If a stay is granted, Acoli’s release will once again be postponed, as it was in 1993 and 2004. The parole board said they had denied him parole due to his political activism and affiliations. He is currently incarcerated in an Otisville, N.Y., prison.
Acoli is a former member of the Black Liberation Army. Along with comrades Assata Shakur, aka Joanne Chesimard, and Zayd Shakur, Acoli was illegally stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike by the state police in May 1973. A shootout occurred, resulting in the fatalities of Zayd Shakur and a police officer. Both Assata Shakur and Acoli, who were wounded, were convicted of the police officer’s murder and given life sentences in 1974. Shakur was able to escape to Cuba and has lived there since 1984.
The New Jersey police and government subsequently placed a $2 million bounty on Shakur’s head for her forced return.
Acoli is one of hundreds of U.S. political prisoners who have been unjustly incarcerated for decades. Their main “crime” has been advocating for the freedom of nationally oppressed peoples from the yoke of institutionalized racism and repression at home and imperialism abroad. Acoli became a target of the terrorist FBI counterintelligence program, or COINTELPRO, which committed acts of infiltration and genocide against national liberation movements like the Black Panther Party, the BLA and the American Indian Movement beginning in the 1960s. Acoli was also a member of the New York Panther 21, who were acquitted on May 13, 1971, when a jury saw through the government’s frame-up after only deliberating for 45 minutes.
While the news of Acoli’s impending release is cause for joy for activists and revolutionaries, the struggle to win his freedom is not over. We know that the state attorney general and police agencies will do everything they can to overturn the appeals court ruling.
Therefore, the movement must remain vigilant to keep the pressure on from below to ensure that Sundiata Acoli is finally able to walk through the prison gates to be reunited with his family, friends and the movement. The truth is that he should never have spent one day in prison — similar to other political prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, the MOVE 9, Imam Jamil Al-Amin (aka H. Rap Brown) and the Cuban 5 — much less having 40 precious years stolen from his life.
Sundiata Acoli is now 77 years old.

Kentake Page Today we remember Mexico’s President of African descent, Vicente Guerrero officially abolishing the Maafa (slavery) in Mexico on September 16, 1829. The Maafa was banned soon after Mexico won its independence in 1821, but it was not officially abolished until 1829.
The existence of Afro-Mexicans was officially affirmed in the 1990s when the Mexican government acknowledged Africa as Mexico’s “third root”. But Mexico’s real history shows the African presence in the country going back thousands of years.
