"I am not tragically colored. There is no great sorrow dammed up in my soul, nor lurking behind my eyes. I do not mind at all. I do not belong to the sobbing school of Negrohood who hold that nature somehow has given them a lowdown dirty deal and whose feelings are all hurt about it. Even in the helter-skelter skirmish that is my life, I have seen that the world is to the strong regardless of a little pigmentation more or less. No, I do not weep at the world—I am too busy sharpening my oyster knife."
Happy Birthday, Zora Neale Hurston! (Text from Dust Tracks on a Road.)

4-Year Old U.S. Adoptee Killed by “Water Therapy”
[TRIGGER WARNING: child abuse, death] As his 4-year-old adopted daughter Cassandra lay dying, Richard Killpack blamed her condition on “emotional problems” and “a really bad case of RAD [Reactive Attachment Disorder]" in his 911 call.
Killpack and his wife Jenette had punished the child for sneaking sips of her sister’s drink by sitting her on a bar stool, tying her hands behind her back with the help of their biological daughter, and forcing her to drink a lethal amount of water.
EMTs found the child unconscious with distended belly and pink foam from her mouth. Medical examiners declared cause of death water intoxication, a condition in which over-abundance of water causes sodium levels in the body to drop, resulting in fatal swelling of the brain.
"I said, ‘You’ll have to go to Mom and do the drinking-water thing,’" the Killpacks’ biological daughter Heather said in a police interview. "She makes her drink ‘til she pukes."

The Killpacks insist they were using “water therapy” to cure their adopted child’s disorder, stating in TV appearances that under the rules set by attachment therapists, Cassandra had to ask for everything, including food and water, “to help her understand dependency, that her mom and dad loved her.”
Sources: CNN |ACT










I’m disgusted. And to top it off the parents’ names are “Killpack”, Jesus. 

Except you don’t get your children to you love you by having them beg for food and water.
What the fuck is wrong with these people???
ETA: The mother only served six years. The father was acquitted.  All because this four year old baby drank some of her [white] sister’s Kool-Aid.

the amount of incidents of horrific violence to adopted children of color… 

As a behavior therapist for autistic or other behavior problem kids…. When we want to prompt the kiddos to ask or say things. Like they want a drink. We hold the cup or cover it and look at them and say “have drink?” “Can I have some water?” “Juice?” (Depends on age) And say it enough until they repeat it. Once they repeat it they get the reward of having it. I understand the importance of negative reinforcement but I draw the line at abuse like this. It breaks my heart

Except Cassandra wasn’t autistic OR behaviorally challenged. She was simply adopted by violent shitheads who (like you) blithely conflate being adopted with “behavior problems.”
Your commentary is especially worthless and ableist in light of this. And your level of ignorance of the countless bio spawn child “experts” who feel the need to interject with irrelevant (and frankly suspect) bullshit to mitigate the literal child torture of adoptees doesn’t matter. You people are less than a dime a dozen, seriously.
I’m the OP, and you obviously have no awareness of how us international and transracial adoptees are so systemically gravely misdiagnosed as “behaviorally challenged,” “serial killers,” or the freaking Dark Lord. Sit down and shut your ignorant mouth. X

milkyyeoja asked:

I am half Korean from my single mother's side.I don't speak korean, nor I am I extremely immersed in the culture, but I do know a lot about it and lived in several Asian countries. I don't look "asian" (apparently "exotic-ish" some kids say -_-) but i have been called chink and made fun of my heritage, but it is somewhat rare when that happens. I was wondering, do I have the right to call myself a women of color? my friends (who are all poc) say i have the right to, i don't want to sound racist

Sorry for the delayed response, swear I didn’t see the notification for this… yes I agree you’re a WOC. Unless of course you actually want to disavow your Asian heritage and identify as white (lol ew).

So long as you acknowledge a certain degree of passing privilege in light of us POC who can’t pass for white under any circumstances, then all’s good. X

p.s. And to hell with any ignorant asshole who tries to deny your heritage for not fitting some weirdass “exotic” Orientalist template.

"Nonviolence declares that the American Indians could have fought off Columbus, George Washington, and all the other genocidal butchers with sit-ins; that Crazy Horse, by using violent resistance, became part of the cycle of violence, and as “as bad as” Custer. Nonviolence declares that Africans could have stopped the slave trade with hunger strikes and petitions, and that those who mutinied were as bad as their captors; that mutiny, a form of violence, led to more violence, and thus, resistance led to more enslavement. Nonviolence refuses to recognize that it can only work for privileged people, who have a status protected by violence, as the perpetrators and beneficiaries of a violent hierarchy."

-Peter Gelderloos, Why Nonviolence Protects the State- Nonviolence is Racist (via fuckyeahradicalquotes)

REBLOGGING FOREVER! USING VIOLENCE (OR TALKING ABOUT IT AS AN OPTION) DOES NOT MAKE YOU OPPRESSIVE!

(via msamberhazard)

Once again a white American dude tries to act like he knows something of the world, and once again gets it completely wrong.

Nonviolence doesn’t entail privilege, nonviolence simply entails an audience.  Read up on Arundhati Roy and other non-Western activists of color — us folks who actually KNOW and have had to survive this genocidal shit.

And while an audience can be a luxury, that is not a conversation that pasty Westerners like Peter Gelderloos get to dictate or even interject in. Yall really going to let some cracker ass European settler get away with branding Indians who overthrew British tyranny and African-Americans imprisoned and assassinated by white supremacy as ‘privileged people’?

LOL manarchists and their desperation for sublimating puerile white boy rage into ‘activism’ that conveniently erases the hell out of struggles they can’t even imagine.
