CULTURAL GENOCIDE: Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)
I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off.
This mun defends all friends/fellow bloggers.
If I see a bully anon I am inclined to say something to refute the cruel words.
Do not tell people to kill themselves
Do not make light of another’s issues
Do not tell someone they are a horrible writer
Do not tell someone they are worthless
Do not tell someone to leave Tumblr
Do not tell someone to leave a fandom
Do not bully.
Unfollow is always an option if you dislike how someone runs their blog/what they post. Simply click the button and leave them be. There is a difference in constructive criticism and flat-out cruelty. Choose words carefully, as they are very powerful tools.
Thank you for reading this, and even more if you also follow these principles.
