Anonymous asked: Kill yourself.
Earlier today I told twitter what I think about the whole Sam Pepper thing and at about the same time I wrote those tweets, I received this “ask”.
So just a reminder of the state of things: when you publicly talk about how a YouTuber making a video of themselves groping unsuspecting women is not a “joke” but rather revolting and upsetting, you are told to kill yourself.
This is the level of discourse we’re at.
FUCKING DISGUSTING MONSTER
rather then fix the actual problems with the house and many many holes in the kitchen our landlord put down glue traps FUCKING GLUE TRAPS
we had no idea. Literally none. I was pouring out last nights stew in my dressing gown when I herd it’s shrieking and I said to everyone straight away that thing was in distress. We caught it soon enough but I can’t bare to think about if no one had been home
Glue traps are horrible. I realise I can’t convince everyone to humanely deal with a mouse problem but please please don’t use these things. Glue traps are basically a piece of card with glue on. That’s it. They cause (as I saw today) major distress and pain for the animal trapped and additionally if your aim is to kill these creatures that death is slow and barbaric
IF YOU FIND A CREATURE STUCK in one of these things use cooking oil to dissolve the glue and they will be able to usually unstick themselves and wiggle free. We set ours free near some bramble bushes a short walk away
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON’T USE GLUE TRAPS

I had a fight with a very large spider today and I only cried for all of most of it and an hour after
Lupita Nyong’o, from her cover story in Dujour magazine about the horrifying things she learned while studying for her breakout role as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave.
I’ve always wondered if schools in Africa discussed the American slave trade. Now reading this quote just fucking hurts.
lol dude, my Nigerian friend and her mom have lived in America for the last 10 years. And she told me her mom was crying after watching a movie about the Black American slave trade like last year. She had no idea we were enslaved whatsoever and was touched by the story.
Damn. I’m surprised that it’s not discussed. Growing up in the Caribbean, you just couldn’t escape it. The rambling Great Houses, the monoculture of sugarcane. Marcus Garvey. I know I didn’t touch the Holocaust until grade nine, but with Schindler’s List and Annie Frank’s diary, I knew about the Holocaust earlier than the syllabus warranted (through the movies, etc). There’s a romanticism with the Holocaust that one never gets with slavery, but nvm.
amen to the bolded and Lupito’s statement. one of my black conservative friends HATES the idea of black history month because she says it drudges up too much of the past and that black people need to move on…but then she will go celebrate the passover feast with one of her Jewish friends and I was like what do you think the passover feast is about? NOT LETTING GO!!! but you want black people, your people, to move on from slavery. sometimes i just can’t with people…
One of the most shocking things I learned was that it was common to make accessories out of the skin of slaves that died. There were wallets and bags, and they were prized possessions. It doesn’t get more horrific than that.
Many Caribbean countries don’t talk or teach about slavery. I mean my mother didn’t even know about it and she’s from Grenada. I told her infront of my grandmother than my 4x great-grandparents was likely slaves in Grenada and my mother was in denial. It was my Grandmother that told her yes they were and she knew some of their names.
That’s very true. As a Jamaican immigrant, I learned very little about slavery while in school in Jamaica.
I hear that a lot from my classmates who have grandparents who are from Jamaica. I also know Puerto Ricans are the same. The sad part is, many schools in America don’t teach slavery. They’ll spent a day or two on it then keep it moving. Someone told me they housed a German foreign exchange student and he was shocked by home American slavery was taught in the US. In his eyes, it was as tragic as the Holocaust. Unlike Germany, the US doesn’t stress what an indecency this was to humanity. Or put emphases that it should never happen again. It must never be forgotten or repeated. Yet this is how Germany teaches the Holocaust.Then again, America likes to pretend slavery ended 500 years ago or never happened.
