A Whole New World…

(( So this week I decided to try something a little different. :) I saw some beautiful “race-bent” Disney a while ago and wanted to try it out, so here’s some of our ladies. :D (There wasn’t really any rhyme or reason to my choices, I just started fiddling with the images and these happened.) :P I’m going to go back to doing genderbent stuff, but I think I’ll do some of these every once in a while if you guys would like to see more. :) ))

Not sure what the fuck was the need to racebend characters of color. 

The first two are fucked up yo

What makes it fucked up?

It’s Hotel Kakslauttanen! This is their glass igloo village where you can watch the beautiful and vivid northern lights from your bed. How wild would that be?! There is so much do and experience here. If you are brave enough you can take it one step further than the glass igloo, and sleep in real snow-built igloos! Of course, they have cabins too (that are absolutely amazing and drool worthy). I would love to go someday!

If this is true….damn…..

William Lynch stated in his letter in 1712…, (whom was a BRITISH slave owner. Yes the British were a part of this too.) Anyways he goes on to say…
"You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks."
So yes, it’s true. SMDH.

And the effects still ripple through our community today. This is one of the many reasons we can’t just “get over it” in regards to slavery. Destruction of the black community, stolen wealth, sexism, and much more stem from slavery. I truly believe we did not have these issues in pre-slavery African societies.

Don’t let them trip you up. We need solidarity all around.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Lynch_speech

The use of the word “Slavery” is often widely and falsely generalized. The TYPE of slavery is the most ESSENTIAL factor. This generalization of “Slavery” is both misleading and fuel for propaganda used to justify the horrors of the African Holocaust also known as The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.


Let me give you an analogy to explain why YOU CANNOT group certain terms in the same category. People who commit crime are labeled “Criminals” but all “Criminals” do not commit the same level of crime. A convicted child molester and a petty shoplifter are technically both criminals. But are their crimes on the same level? Should they be sentenced the same? I’d like to hope that you don’t think so. “Slavery” should not be generalized. Furthermore, we must expose the propaganda of “American Chattel Slavery”.



There has been forms of domestic servitude found since the beginning of history. Africans, Europeans, and Asians all share this history. Understand that the Trans-Atlantic slave trade was NOTHING like that, especially AMERICAN CHATTEL SLAVERY.



“American Chattel Slavery” was 500 years of dehumanizing and total degradation of African people. It’s estimated that over 250 million Africans died during this horror. They murdered, raped, tortured, and enslaved Africans for more than 500 years (and counting). Generations of stolen Africans lived and died enslaved. Living a real life HORROR movie. THERE HAS BEEN NOTHING LIKE THIS TRAGEDY EVER IN HISTORY, EVER! The worst part of this horror was the psychological attack on the African mind through colonization and years of oppression. There was a CONSCIOUS effort to ensure dehumanization, CONSCIOUS effort!

Why? Because dehumanization justifies animalistic treatment and rids moral responsibility. They made the Africans change their name, cut their hair, change their religion , and change their language. All this was done to rid them of their true identities. Knowing who you are and what you are owed is the biggest threat to an oppressor. This is why they would not allow the slaves to read. KNOWLEDGE MAKES A MAN UNFIT TO BE A SLAVE…

The Trans-Atlantic Slave trade was the birth of worldwide racism. It was the first time a “slave” could be readily identified because of the phenotypical differences between the Africans and Europeans. African servitude was similar to feudalism, American chattel slavery was a 500 year holocaust. YOU CANNOT COMPARE THE TWO.

“Slavery is in the past, let it go” Why is it important to recognize Trans -Atlantic Slavery? It virtually made EUROPEANS wealthy, it is the reason for their worldwide success, and it gave Americans a 400 year headstart of advancement on the rest of the world. It is also responsible for the starving Africans kids that you see on television always being portrayed by the media. African resources were directly controlled by Europeans and used to benefit Europe and America. The enslaved got nothing to show for it but the destruction of their families. NOT EVEN AN APOLOGY. The Wealthy ELITE in America is still spending OLD money from slavery.

I could go on and on about this but if you take nothing from this post understand that SLAVERY should not be generalized and NEVER forget it. Allowing a person who benefited from slavery to tell you, the VICTIM to forget about it is FOOLISH. That’s like a woman who has been RAPED to be told by her rapist to forget what he did to her, NEVER FORGET.

Scientists Reveal Face of the First European





The face of the first European has been recreated from bone fragments by scientists.The head was rebuilt in clay based on an incomplete skull and jawbone discovered in a cave in the south west of the Carpathian Mountains in Romania by potholers.

Using radiocarbon analysis scientists say the man or woman, it is still not possible to determine the sex, lived between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago.


Europe was then occupied by both Neanderthal man, who had been in the region for thousands of years, and anatomically-modern humans – Homo sapiens.


Modern humans first arrived in Europe from Africa.












The skull appears very like humans today, but it also displays more archaic traits, such as very large molar teeth, which led some scientists to speculate the skull may belong to a hybrid between Homo sapiens and Neanderthals – an idea discounted by other experts.
Erik Trinkaus, professor of anthropology at Washington University in Missouri, said the jaw was the oldest, directly-dated modern human fossil. “Taken together, the material is the first that securely documents what modern humans looked like when they spread into Europe,” he said.
The model was created by Richard Neave, a forensic artist, for a BBC programme about the origins of the human race and evolution.
via telegraph.co.uk (2009)






You can watch the clip from the show this model was made for here. It’s oddly defensive and uncomfortable to watch, and they keep talking about how the face “doesn’t look African”.
I watched part of the full documentary, “The Incredible Human Journey”, and almost immediately formed a rather strong dislike of the host/creator. 
"Their way of life is the closest I could find to that of our ancestors!"
After watching her follow around some folks she refers to as “The Bushmen”, and taking their body temperatures while they’re hunting, the whole thing just became pretty gross and I turned it off.
