One of the most disturbing scenes in Disney’s “Aladdin” is when Jasmine must pretend to seduce Jaffar in order to distract him. The clothing that the animators chose to put her in, complete with the shackles, are all a white, colonial wet dream. And she’s the only Disney princess who’s had to use her body in this way to distract someone. Then there’s this scene in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” where Esmeralda is shimmying her hips and breasts and basically ends with a pole-dance sequence: a far cry from the delicate waltzes and pirouettes that Belle and Aurora dance. The simultaneous fascination and revulsion that Whiteness has for WOC bodies are unmistakably evident in Disney’s posturing of Jasmine and Esmeralda.

A perfect example of “desert flower” fetishization/exotification. Women of color are always shown as “others”, they’re seen as women who have to use their sexuality to save themselves (or worse, as people who are just inherently sexual by their mere existence).

We’re putting these sexualized images of women of color into cartoons meant for children, essentially brainwashing them to grow into adults who fetishize non-white women. Gross.

NPR covers all 2,428 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border, so you don’t have to.

The results are beautiful.

The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave. Assata Shakur: An Autobiography (via caramelblackness)

A few pages from Latino USA: A Cartoon History by Ilan Stavans (Author) & Lalo Alcaraz (Illustrator)

When I was taking Chicano Studies our instructor gave us these to share with the clase

They’re so hilarious/informative. I really need to buy the actual book.

How beautiful a rose is! It smells nice and it looks nice but at the end, it withers away, losing its charm! Almighty ordered His Messenger Muhammed s.a.w not to be deceived by this world or by the splendor of this life. Creator told us that this is all a test to mankind. He also told us that the reality of life is similar to a rose. Yet, people cling to it as if they will stay in it forever. A ruler, who reigned for years thinking he was immortal, lost it all as if it was never there! A marriage that went on for decades, ends up in seconds with a single word! The strength, beauty and youth that ruled for years, turn into wrinkled skin and white hair. What are you waiting for? Do you think whatever you have will last forever? Well, think twice! O Lord, don’t derive us from a favor of yours because of our sins and make us steadfast on Islam. Assim Alhakeem (via letssharestories)

A woman reaches under a block from the apartheid wall trying to hold the hand of her mother on the other side. Many families have become segregated after the Israeli occupation regime completed the construction of the wall which runs through Palestinian lands. This is just one of thousands of cases.

Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential. Quincy Jones (via sunflobrwn)
