Anonymous asked:

Do you feel someone can be feminist without hating men? Or be pro black without hating white? The pattern being do you think you can be for your people without hating your oppressors?

black--lamb:

You can be whatever you want to be without hate..

BUT think about it this way..

The oppressed don’t just wake up one day and decide to hate their oppressors… It’s a learned circumstance…

People need to start differentiating between hate and a simple demand for respect…

It’s easy for oppressors to flip the script and pull the ‘hate’ card because they know their behavior is justified by the majority….

Sometimes that hatred that develops in the oppressed is necessary for their survival..

At the end of the day, oppressors can NOT be harmed by the ‘expression’ of hatred from the oppressed due to their inherent privilege… racially or gender wise…….Whether they want to admit it or not.

this was taken at the Museum of London, Docklands - it has a large section about London’s role in slavery, and how slavery contributed to modern racism. 

I think that a lot of museums are finally starting to try and take a more proactive stance on how they present their exhibits and information about them.
For more on this kind of arrangement, I high recommend taking a look at these submissions from xanthy-m on the Swedish Historical Museum:

So yall “historically accurate” fuckers can be quiet
