People with uteruses will get about 500 periods in their lifetime. Meaning that you’ll be on your period for a total of around 1200 days. With a loss of about 1440 ounces of blood. Which is approximately how much blood there is in 9 adult human bodies. That, my friend, is some very badass stuff.
Can we say how much we adore that this says ‘people with utereruses’ instead of women.
this is my favorite video of the year so far
The black-market trade of rhinoceros horns
Please may we add the Chinese government’s complicity in this industry. Many have called out for them to erect more stringent laws policing where these rhino horns end up, but not much has been done. Yes a famous Chinese man, Yao Ming has been campaigning against rhino poaching which I think it’s great, but it’s far from enough.
This is not just an environmental issue. There was a time when those arrows originated from the west side of Africa to Europe and the Americas, carrying people who were ALSO considered a monetary commodity. No I’m not saying we are animals, but once again we have our resources simply stolen from us as we stand silent. If it’s not our people, it’s our animals and our LAND. That’s the issue: the world helps itself to Africa.
Many of us ignore this issue because in the past, our wildlife was given more preference to our people and that is very true. What has been missing from the conversation though is the past, present and future dynamics of interactions between our people and our wildlife/land. Most of these animals (especially the Big Five), live in enclosed reserves owned and run by white people. Actually, I think ALL of these game reserves are owned by white people. Sometimes ownership is by the government but they are largely run by white folks. How come? The answer to that lies in colonialism when large swaths of land were stolen from Africans for various reasons including making special destinations for white hunters to flex their guns on our wildlife.
With land stolen from them (I’m looking at you British colonizers in Kenya), the Africans surrounding these game reserves ended up with no land to farm and were forced to work on these reserves or later take part in the lucrative poaching business. HOWEVER, the poachers on foot (most of them African) hardly make the money the big boys make but have become the face of the bad man ruthlessly killing endangered animals without further investigation into why they came into this industry in the first place.
So what needs to happen for us Africans to stand up for our wildlife? We stand up for our people FIRST and that consequently means we protect our wildlife too. By protecting the land and borders, making sure all Africans (especially in rural or farming communities) are adequately compensated for their work, have the necessary resources such as hospitals, schools, land and political voice, we also create ownership. Tourism (specifically to see these animals) is big business in these East and Southern African countries but Africans do not benefit nearly as much as the white/Arabic land owners. (Google any safari expedition in South Africa for example and see who cleans the rooms but who owns the resorts.)
African governments, notably Mozambique, have actively started to address these imbalances which eventually force people into the poaching industry. This is the right path but much more has to be done. We must still protect our borders, hold these East Asian governments accountable for their limited action as well.
WE NEED TO BE THE FACE OF WILDLIFE PROTECTION. Not for anything but because this is the truth. Our resources are being stolen and this means we are not benefiting at all. We do not even benefit when these animals are safe and enjoyed by tourists.
The world has once again paid attention to African animals with more vigour than to our people and we should use this opportunity to illustrate the historical land inequalities that exist today, and how we must have a say in how our animals are treated. They belong to us.

not sure if I want the asian or the pajamas…..
You can’t have “the asian”. You can’t have people. No. That’s not how that works.
you’ll be aight
yes, I will be alright because I don’t talk about people like they’re objects because of my inability to see other races and genders as human, you know. Helps me make friends and not be a detriment to society.
You’re stinking up the internet.
you are trying too hard damn, just reblog the pajamas, delete the caption and shut the hell up
Nah bro. I reblogged your caption cause I think you’re weak as hell and your blog is weak and shin chan is cute and this person is cute but you’re being racist and I just wanted to make sure you knew that <3
Stop patting these corny niggas on the back for knowing/doing shit they’re supposed to be doing/knowing.

Do we all face stereotypes, of course. The question is, do all stereotypes carry the same weight ?
they don’t hear you though
right? “white girls like starbucks”, “white people all have money”, etc. are not harmful, oppressive, life-ruining stereotypes and the fact they argue to make that comparison is indicative of white privilege itself.
Here’s the difference:
Black people are criminals: Results —->Renisha McBride shot in the face asking for help, Trayvon Martin shot just for walking down the street, Amadou Diallo, Rekia Boyd etc.
Latinos are illegal immigrants: Results ——> innocent people being deported, families being split up, students being kicked out of school, etc.
White people are bad dancers: Results—-> Folks laugh and move on.
The end results are what determine whether or not a stereotype is harmful.
Let’s not say being murdered or having your family split up is the same as someone laughing for two seconds and moving on. Let’s not do that.
ok addressing this eatyourkimchi shit stuff
They’ve been doing this shit since forever, so I’m not even surprised. Honestly, I ain’t even mad because Ravi’s rapping has been known for being hard to understand regardless of language, but they (for the 3459345935th time) came at someone for not sounding “fluent” (when the English isn’t even really for English speakers). Like, I’m always cracking on his intros and stuff, and there’s so much more to it than just pronunciation.
