That moment when you realize that David Tennant is one of us.
This is the best thing that has ever happened.
Oh, go on. You know you liked it.
Salute to the enduring spirit of the children of the slaves…
A lot of the men and women that had to endure this are still alive. Don’t let white people act like this is the distant past. It’s not.
American history. American present.
This stuff gets me so emotional
Look at that stupid motherfucker holding that poor, beaten man up. That grin on his face is so fucking infuriating. I’m not one who endorses fighting or violence solving violence, but I really want to knock every one of his goddamn teeth out.
The one with the two young men holding the beaten guy up is actually two guys trying to help and protect him if I remember rightly … I need to find the source for it.
When I see his face I see sadness and confusion at what people are capable of doing to each other.
We had to read Ralph Ellison’s “Party Down at the Square” for one of my classes and this type of history is definitely still alive and living- not far in the past. Plus its still going on just in a much less visible and subverted way.
These are my views as a New Zealander having lived and learned (more in depth knowledge of the US) about the US in the last two years.
The image of the two young white men (one wearing a “U.S. Army” shirt) was featured in Life magazines coverage of the 1943 Detroit race riots (link).
They were helping the injured man to the subway after he was stoned by hoards of other white mobs. After reading on it, the whole episode was incredibly barbaric, started by whites and used as a vehicle for incredible brutality at the hands of the white crowds and the Detroit police force, who are responsible for the deaths of at least 17 black protesters but no white deaths or injuries.
Ah, yes, the good old days. But not to worry, those good times aren’t completely gone. Not as long as there are Gays & transgender, Arabs & Jews. The list could go on and on. For example: the Boy Scouts of America now accepts gay youth yet still bans gay adults; Trail Life USA, the organization that came into existence for no other reason than to be the decidedly anti-LGBT alternative to the Boy Scouts, has virtually the same policy on Jews.
