Anonymous asked: Justin Bieber was a child when he made those videos. I don't think he understood the full weight of what he was saying.
- Emmett Till was 14 when he was mutilated and murdered for flirting with a white woman, his killers acquitted.
- George Stinney was 14 when he was executed via electric chair, for allegedly killing two white girls. There was no evidence and the all white-jury took 10 mins to declare him guilty.
- Trayvon Martin was 17 years old when he was stalked and killed by a man with a history of violence towards others. His murderer was acquitted.
- Jordan Davis was 17 years old when he was shot and killed by an entitled white man over loud music. He was later found guilty for attempted murder.
Racism and white supremacy are literally killing black children, but Justin Bieber gets a pass because he was 15-17 when he decided to record his racist “jokes”???
white girls who want my culture’s bindis and saris and henna
take my skin colour too
and my dark brown lips
take my self-hatred because i don’t fit into the euro-centric ideals of beauty
take the oppression too
take the history of colonization that has devastated my country
and the drones that currently devastate my country
take all the bad stuff too
not just the pretty, shiny, sparky bits
take the ugly, dehumanizing and shitty parts too
