"Apparently, women of color were wearing their hair in such fabulous ways, adding jewels and feathers to their high hairdos and walking around with such beauty and pride that it was obscuring their status. This was very threatening to the social stability (read: white population) of the area at the time. The law was meant to distinguish women of color from their white counterparts and to minimize their beauty."

Ghandi Quotes You’ve Never Heard
The lack of communication and documentation allowed Ghandi to create a perfect self-image of himself. But the popular image of Ghandi is a myth. In reality, Ghandi was a fascist sympathizer, blatant racist and a homophobic bisexual.
Here are some quotes from the man himself:
While in South Africa: “We were then marched off to a prison intended for Kaffirs [offensive term equivalent to the n-word]. We could understand not being classed with whites, but to be placed on the same level as the Natives seemed too much to put up with. Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilized — the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live like animals." 
“We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do… We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.” — Vol. 3, p. 256
Feb. 15, 1904: “Under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population.” — Vol. 3, p. 429
To the British during WWII: “This manslaughter must be stopped. You are losing; if you persist, it will only result in greater bloodshed. Hitler is not a bad man.”
1946: “Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs… It would have aroused the world and the people of Germany… As it is they succumbed anyway in their millions.”
Gandhi believed this act of “collective suicide”, in response to the Holocaust, “would have been heroism”.

Why do all these books about Africa have the same cover?

hese 36 images represent books about a sweeping range of topics and locations, from Nigeria and Mozambique to Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. A quick geography lesson will reveal that these are, in fact, not the same place.

"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalizes the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalize views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" - Dr. Peter Hegarty

Could you tell the difference?
