i’ve been procrastinating on studying for midterms by researching canonization and patronage, and i learned that St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the only canonized First Nations saint, is a patron saint of loss of parents. it’s probably because she lost her parents at the age of 4 to a smallpox epidemic, but i keep wavering between it seeming really fitting for Split Feathers in a way and it being a cruel joke of the Catholic Church
Damn, wouldn’t put it past them. The Catholic Church has instituted and overseen child trafficking in nearly every region they held power, with the most concentrated kidnappings definitely being in North America against First Nations peoples, and in continental Europe against Romani peoples.
Aw. You tried ;)
Actually, it’s a term the whole international orphan community (that includes many domestically adopted indigenous kids whose nations go unrecognized) often uses. That guess is so wrong it’s hilarious!
In any case, outsiders shouldn’t concern themselves with it because it’s not theirs to use. If a community has made it clear they don’t want to teach you their terms, it’s disrespectful and a waste of time presuming to know or trying to find out.
Yahoo Tumblr rolled out crappy behind the scenes changes yet again. So if you’ve installed certain anti-hijacking protocols on your browser you can’t even login anymore unless you disable them. Friends with automatic cross platform publishing also report post formats getting all screwed up with images reduced to that horrible little gray square preview and NO click-through
Not sure if/how this relates directly to hiccuping ask box - I got 14 msgs today but no notification and I suspect a bunch more were eaten. Anyone else experiencing this? @indigoradix, mendingending, frenchfriesforamerica, and the adoptee whose inquiry calls for anonymity might wanna resend everyting since you expended time and effort to write such long msgs but from all you I only received 1 out of what were apparently 2-4. Hats off for this newfangled numbering of asks!
FYI tho it might be a while before I’m able to reply — the international adoption community’s rallying IRL and OL re: the beating to death of yet another child by adoptive parent. The outcry over Hyunsu O’Callaghan is unprecedented in the foundational USA-Korea pipeline considering it’s a rather routine murder esp with US being industrialized world’s #1 leader in child deaths. Supply countries always kept in the dark of how utterly endemic child abuse is in receiver countries, but with Korea finally finding out and the NSA factoring in, the outcome could definitely sway global policy, as we’ve seen before with Russia. Most of you reading this are class bastards, so I trust you understand and excuse the delay? <3
Stay glorious and ungrateful. X
Sweden (along with nearly every other Western nation on the planet) invaded my birth country, committed war crimes, rape, genocide.
They took away my family, my home, my language, my birthday, my nationality, sold me for a price into the home of my oppressors and told me to be grateful.
They CONTINUE to collectively kidnap and traffick children from my homeland in the hundreds of thousands.
So to bintrushd , stfuwhiteliberals , and any other sheltered, dumbshit bio spawn who presumes for one second that they can EVER understand how utterly global white supremacy is for us, all while incorrectly presuming our nationality when it was completely fucking stripped from us and falsified
GO FUCK YOURSELVES.
Your borders mean nothing to us and never will. The West is a bland ass monolith and I hate you all equally X
#intro post #hi new followers <3
p.s. lol I don’t even live in North America, much less the damn US.
p.p.s. isn’t stfuwhiteliberals one of those blogs that’s actually really problematic and been involved in a lotta bullshit with actual poc, or was that stfuconservatives? lol all bio spawn look alike
In March last year a popular celebrity, Alexander Bard, declared on national television station SVT that there is nothing wrong with calling black people “n*ggers” – “If I can refer to myself as a faggot then I should be able to call black people n*ggers” – and when confronted on social media by an Afro-Swede, he insisted on using the word repeatedly to make his point.
Last April, at a student dinner gathering at the prestigious Lund University, students arrived with their faces blacked up, with nooses and shackles around their necks and arms, and led by a white “slave trader”. During the course of the evening, a slave auction was enacted.
When I filed a complaint, I was subjected to a racist reprisal. Apart from threats against me and my family, a manipulated picture of me as a slave in shackles was made into posters bearing the words, in Swedish: "This is our runaway n*gger slave and he answers to the name Jallow Momodou. If you should find him please call this number." These were put up in several different spots around my workplace, Malmö university. Rev Jesse Jackson himself condemned the harassment.
In October 2010, a white Swedish man went on a rampage in Malmö, shooting more than 20 people of colour and killing one. The killer was officially considered to be a lone wolf with psychological problems rather than a terrorist with racist motives, and he has still not been prosecuted.
At the start of last year, a sex education film caused outrage because it showed a black guy having sex with a white girl. More than half a million comments were posted on the internet, mainly commenting on how disgusted they were at this “betrayal” of the white race and corruption of the purity of the Swedish gene pool. The entire incident, though, was not even commented on by a single politician.
Despite all these incidents, however, Sweden has created an image for itself of paradise and harmony, which has been bought into by the rest of the world. It is a challenge for all of us to revise the Swedish self-image, starting in our schools, to understand how racism has taken hold in this country.
Sweden abolished the slave trade in 1847 well after nations like Britain; but few people know this part of its history. The Swedish exceptionalism – the idea that Sweden is disconnected from slavery and colonialism – has made it very difficult to discuss the racist structures that black people face today.
Racism is about power, in which those who operate the levers believe it is OK to discriminate, dehumanise and denigrate without consequence. This is what the culture minister is relying on: a racist structure that ignores racial incidents and ultimately makes them part of the norm. This is what the true image of Swedish society looks like."
Jallow Momodou, Sweden: the Country Where Racism is “Just a Joke”
#EUROPE AINT RACIST THO
Cue the white tears: “but we don’t have racism here that’s U.S.-centric we only have xenophobia and discrimination that totally includes white people!!!!111”
i wonder how dude who claimed antiblackness wasn’t a huge part of Europe or Sweden missed all this antiblack racism
Can American bloggers stop using every articles/posts/etc about racism in Europe as an opportunity to add cynical comments? That’s really insensitive and self-centered for one.
Don’t start pretending that accusations of US centrism against many of you are coming from European white people, many non-white people living in Europe have complained about the daily occurrences of US-centrism from SJ bloggers on this website.
I can’t for the life of me understand how most of you got a “Racism doesn’t exist in Europe” from people telling you to stop being American-centric.
I’m honestly shocked that users can derail the point at hand and divert the narrative to people who aren’t even fucking suffering from this racism in Sweden. It just shows that American chauvinism comes in the guise of progress too.
LOL bintrushd and stfuwhiteliberals I’m a “Third World” orphan whose nationality has changed fucking repeatedly courtesy your dumbshit Western adoption industry and I don’t even remotely live in the US.
The point is that the West is a monolith, ESPECIALLY to me and mine. (You might have known that if you’d bothered to just click-through and see who the hell you’re addressing before making total assholes of yourself) Yeah stfuwhiteliberals, keep talking out your neck about “derailing” to an international adoptee when Sweden trafficks more “orphans” of color in relation to its own population than any other country on earth. My life encompasses and navigates national borders in ways that your basic, bio spawned existence can’t even BEGIN to imagine.
And if you’re really that clueless of how Scandinavians are especially guilty of this increasing trend of speshul snowflake revisionist crap, then both of you know fuck all of the history and inherently global domination of white supremacy.
LOL at all non-black assholes interjecting that anti-blackness ANYWHERE doesn’t affect black people everywhere omfg it’s clear you know nothing about the global nature of white supremacy but did you even read the article
white bio spawn have been even more obnoxious as of late
i had someone try to convince me that i’m not actually Indigenous since I was
adopted outstolen from my nations, but that I also can’t claim my adoptive family’s heritage (Scottish) since i’m not actually related to them by blood
keep changing your views to erase my identity and existence as much as possible, yt ppl
"BUT WHY AREN’T YOU GRATEFUL"
Lol, I agree on the inexplicably increased levels of obnoxiousness… maybe something about the season stirs even more resentment in their narrow, mundane existences about us knowing and encompassing multiple worlds they can’t imagine. X
maybe someone should actually break the news to that white supremacy upholding asshole? i mean before it really loses its shit and moves on to the ultimate "You’re Interrogating From The Wrong Perspective" projection
Hahah! Please just not yet, we haven’t come across a spawn this clueless in a long time! Let cleverity wallow around more in the “marginalized person must produce evidence to oppressor’s satisfaction” stage and see if the progression from being genuinely oblivious of the inherent biases in UNICEF etc. to being plain disingenuous ever kicks in..
It’s like watching a cockroach trying and failing to crawl its way out of a wet paper bag… So many accounts of government mandated ethnocide and NOT adoptive placement, and that spawn’s first derailment is "quantify for me something i don’t know the meaning of that doesn’t actually indicate a global crisis i also don’t know anything about and refuse to learn wahh!!" Haha and you know that no-life loser was shitting about it all weekend. ^^
omg reminds me of this antiziganist shitbrain who was so damn gullible they couldn’t believe Pro Juventute (major Catholic org that used adoption as a tool of genocide) of any wrongdoing bc it’s “a fucking charity" — all the while reblogging & endorsing my timeline on the Catholic Church’s mass kidnapping & institutionalization of children as it gave them “really good ideas” for further wiping out the Roma in the Czech Republic.
lol this is why I don’t covet white supremacy (aside from the whole pathetic loser thing who can only stand tall if someone else is on their knees) —they’re so stupidly sheltered, one white savior website blurb is really all it takes to sucker them completely X
lol true. hey i been following for a while and should introduce myself finally.
i am a domestically adopted us foster care survivor, but am connected to the international adoption community enough to know how few public survivors of reactive attachment disorder “therapy” there are on earth with that exhaustive level of insight into UN convention standards plus other global policy makers you post about
without presuming to know who you are, i wanna thank you for being you. its amazing someone like you is alive and on tumblr. you teach me a lot and help me survive.
Wow, thank you. Delighted to make your acquaintance!
You are truly GLORIOUS and I am so grateful for your survival. X
…also LOL lookit that no-life bio spawned still shitting itself over this old news even today omfg-
