- Malcolm X: Instead of legislation, in my opinion, it takes education. The whites ought to be re-educated so that the racism that they have in their hearts can be eliminated, and our people have to be re-educated so that we will know how to do something for ourselves instead of waiting for others to do it for us all the time. They[the press] can make the American public love whom they will and hate whom they will. And that same process can be used to re-educate the American public and show white people how to love Black people and show Black people how to stand on our own two feet and solve our own problems.
- Interviewer: Do you think the civil rights bill, when it's passed, is a sign for better times for Negroes in this country?
- Malcolm X: No. As I said before, the legislation won't solve our problem. New York City has all of the laws, and still there's job discrimination in its city. That type of law hasn't solved the problem. And it's the same with the segregated educational system. It exists here the same as it exists in the South. Now, the law here is on the side of an integrated school system, but you still don't have an integrated school system.

Look at how Urban Outfitters is taking something that has been in our culture for how many decades & calling it “Vintage 90 Linen Dress” They have the nerve to say it was “Made in the U.S.A” & its from the “1990s”. Its incredibly disrespectfully to our culture & heritage for them to sell something & not to get even get an inch of credit or recognition like they came up with concept on their own. I love being EthiopiaN & Habesha & I don’t appreciate our culture getting ripped off!
PLEASE REBLOG THIS! WE NEED TO SEND A MESSAGE TO URBAN OUTFITTERS!
Just so we’re all clear on what we just read. Black people make up 22% of the poor but only 14% of the government benefits. Meaning, 8% of poor Black people are not taking government benefits when they need them.
While, white people make up 42% of the poor but receive 69% of the government benefits. Meaning, there are white people who are classified as middle class who are receiving government benefits.
…but welfare queens and stuff.
LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT!
Black people make up 22% of the poor BUT only 14% of the government benefits.
White people make up 42% of the poor BUT receive 69% of the government benefits.
This needs to go viral.
This is essential piece of information revealing racial bias AGAINST Black people in receiving government benefits.
Never again do I want to hear about White people living in poverty.
Never again do I want to hear about Black people living on government benefits.
Reblog this. Over and over again. POST IT ON EVERY SOCIAL MEDIA SITE WHERE YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT.
YouTube’s slogan is “broadcast yourself” and it’s been celebrated as the new media platform that will revolutionize how marginalized groups are presented in the media. But the network is not much different than old media—90 of the top 100 YouTube video creators are white and mostly male.
In 2009 YouTube launched what they call the Partner Program that allows some of the popular content owners to make money from the videos they uploaded to the video sharing site. YouTube will not say how much people are paid for their content but according to earning reports there are thousands of video content creators on YouTube who are making more than $100,000 a year.
In the Colorlines.com video above YouTube stars Franchesca Ramsey and Andre Meadows along with scholar Jenny Ungbha Korn discuss YouTube Racism and how black video content creators have to work much harder to be seen.

I don’t understand. Why put so much effort and time into typing up posts about racism, Muslim solidarity, and Anti-Blackness in Arab and Desi communities only to turn around and refer to yourself as the KKK to discourage Somalis, which you refer to as pirates, from joining a fucking conversation?
