ok, so today at the daycare that i volunteer at it was ‘princess and superhero’ day and this little boy walked in in this sparkling blue dress and my favorite thing is that none of the kids reacted at all, they just told him he looked pretty and went on with they’re day and that is why children are better than adults

Every black child in grade school is taught Adolph Hitler killed six million Jews and is the worst human being that ever lived. On the other hand our children are taught “The Right Honorable” Cecil Rhodes the founder of the De Beer diamond company in South Africa who killed ten times that number of Africans is a hero and a statesman and if they study hard and do well in school they may be eligible to win Rhodes Scholarships the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world. They don’t mention the scholarships are paid for with the blood of their ancestors.
If you don’t know your history, you can expect to continue to be a fool, used and abused by the oppressor.

….We (at least in America) weren’t taught about De Beer at all.

^ I was thinking that while reading this. Never learned about him in school.

This is the first time I have heard that name.

Slate article about a TV miniseries from 1998: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/television/1998/01/rhodes_to_hell.html
article from 2010: http://espressostalinist.com/genocide/cecil-rhodes-and-de-beers-genocide-diamonds/

If you still don’t know De Beers is completely evil, and built on the spilled blood of Africa, you haven’t been paying attention to the news (or pop culture—JFC there’s a Leo DiCaprio movie that features a very thinly veiled fictionalization of DeBeers as the bad guy) for the last two decades.
When you buy diamonds you pay for mass murder. Even the ethically sourced ones are built on a platform of death. (Gold and other gems from Africa are not exempt either.)
Your cellphones, too, FYI. All those rare earth heavy metals that make them work? Yeah, they’re from Africa, too, and are funding the wars in places like the CAR.

When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women.

It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.”  All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.

Losing privilege is scary. But it is essential to understand that moving toward equality is not “reverse discrimination.”
