Here is a difference. Black/Brown/Yellow face is used to humiliate. White face is packaged in a bottle, marketed as a key for success and labelled Fair and Lovely. And it sells.

A beautiful video showcasing Pakistani-Chinese friendship.

Sust, a village located in Gilgit-Baltistan, is the last town inside Pakistan on the Karakoram Highway before the Chinese border. The Karakoram Highway, also known as the Friendship Highway in China, was built by both the Pakistani and Chinese governments. It was started in 1959 and was completed in 1979. About 810 Pakistanis and about 200 Chinese workers lost their lives, their deaths were caused by landslides and falls, while building the highway. The Chinese workers who died during the construction are buried in the Chinese cemetery, located in Gilgit. The route of the Karakoram Highway traces one of the many paths of the ancient Silk Road.

pokerwithplato asked: It really annoys me when people say white privilege doesn't exist outside of white countries. White privilege exist in almost every country that had once been part of a European colony. White privilege exists in any country that is controlled by European politics and economy. Like they think poc can just run away when our countries are being essentially controlled by white people.

White people set foot on and fucked up almost every country in the world. THE. WORLD. Their white privilege remains ~*everywhere*~

Your only argument is that I’m white. If you would like to show me a link to a well sourced, in context quote that proves I am wrong I will happily stop quoting him otherwise but until then I hold to my belief that Martin Luther King Jr. preached that everyone should love everyone and that he believed that people of color should not reply to caucasian racism with hate, but with love and non-aggression

CAUCASIAN RACISM IM DEAD

"First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."

Letter From Birmingham Jail 16 April 1963

Hold on and get some perspective I’m not saying don’t get upset, I’m saying don’t say “I hate all white people because they are white and there is not a single good white person on the entire planet” which is exactly what people were saying in this post http://lengthy-shorts.tumblr.com/post/81303316670/whitepeoplesaidwhat-lengthy-shorts

Reread that quote, honey. That’s Dr. King expressing his disdain for the white moderate, people like you who remain silent when shit like this goes down and the only time we see you speak up is to police PoC’s reactions to racism. People like YOU are just as responsible for racism as the people in the picture you linked. Martin Luther King, Jr., the same man’s quote you used to silence PoC, was just as frustrated with the white people who remained silent, as the people you are trying to argue with.
Do you not realize how utterly stupid you look?

Anonymous asked: "Adding on to that "don't fight fire with fire" thing. I'm Indian, from India(A big fuck you to Columbus). Gandhi had fought peacefully for a big part of the 150 years the british were in my country. And, you know what they offered us? DOMINION STATUS. As in, the Queen still reigns but we get to be political puppet leaders in our own country. You know what stopped it? Revolutionaries bombing their shit and defending themselves against their violence. So, screw "dent fight feir wid feir gersh!""

Oh yeah, violence and hatred definitely works to get what you want, but it’s not going to change someone’s state of mind on issues.

That’s totally different, fighting hate with hate is totally different to me defending your homeland from someone physically taking over your country

Shut up. *Stawp faeting hayt with hayt becawz eet never worx* Get this through your narrow mind- violence began with little white people in Europe who decided to colonize the world, steal the world’s resources, and turn the people into their slaves. Not only that, they created this idea of race, and claimed that God created the white race as a smarter, more attractive, and the most civilized race. They believe this gave them power to completely dehumanize the indigenous people they took over in Africa, Eastern and South Asia, North and South America, the Middle East, and Australia.
How did PoC physically and mentally free themselves? Well is sure as fuck wasn’t through love. The ones who did preach “love” were (and continue to be) tokenized by white people to make them feel better about themselves and to control the oppressed, as they continued to use violence and exploitation against PoC.
I need you guys to forget everything you learned from American history books. They are in part responsible for molding “token minorities”. Go learn about Colonialism and why the world is so fucked up and why those who fucked it over still hold positions of power and privilege. Decolonize your mind.
