Unist’ot’en Camp stands firmly in the path of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway.


The federal government’s approval of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway is an invitation to conflict—a test of Canada’s will to inflict violence upon the environment and indigenous peoples who have, throughout much of the project’s proposed route, never surrendered their lands.

'This isn’t just a fight about pipelines. This is a fight about indigenous sovereignty, our sovereignty,' said Toghestiy.”

POC People Can’t be Racist 

This is just a discussion on my understanding of racism vs prejudice, and I did source all the examples I used in the video. Please note that you can ask questions, leave comments, and express your opinion in the comments, however you are more likely to get a response by sending me a message to my tumblr.

Racial Wage Differences/White Men Make More

I would like to add something to not take away from the title, but PoCs can be racist…  just only to each other.

Of course! I was going to explain that in the video, but I was trying to keep it short. I was thinking about adding it into the title, but ALSO wanted to keep the title short. But POC can only really be racist against each other, mostly because we are all considered less than. In short, we are all on the same playing field for the most part. 

Another thing my video didn’t include: I am not a stern believer that POC can even be racist towards White people internationally (depending on the country). Lets seriously consider how many countries Britain has taken over or attempted to take over, a fucking lot. White supremacy has been spread all over the world, even in POC dominated countries. Which is why you’ll see skin bleaching be this huge thing in parts of Africa, and being half white being this huge thing in certain Asian communities. For the most part, whiteness is pretty much internationally accepted as the norm. 

Yep. 

I see the objective of the video was to keep it nice and short and you did an excellent job with that. (Me, I can’t seem to keep mine under 7 minutes without cutting a lot of fat, and I get more of a backlash because… well, this isn’t a personal blog.) Good work, overall.

If bees become extinct we will have exactly 4 YEARS to live on this planet. I don’t understand how “not caring” is more important than your life…

If we can genetically modify the crops, we clearly don’t need the bees. They have been phased out of their usefulness as a species and it’s time to let them go gentle into that good night.

cant genetically modify them to pollinate themselves dude
i think, anyway

It’s people like you who stand in the way of innovation and forward progress, always worried about what is and isn’t possible, what species would be wiped out, etc. You know what people used to say was impossible? Putting a man on the moon. And now we’ve done it, and if we can put a man on the moon, we can put the bees on the moon.

i love that this dude is trolling the pro-bee communities, hahahaha! moon bees sounds like a good band name, though.

"Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit."

Do you remember how big a deal it was in the media when Israel accused Hamas of this? 
Do you see how the information that Hamas weren’t behind it is not being covered by the media?
Over 1,000 dead in Gaza. This was another genocidal Zionist lie.
