jacksonjekyllofficial asked:

Are you aware that the stuff you wrote up about those American Hogwarts Houses ghosts on that deodorant post is irreparably racist and deeply insulting to first peoples, Africans, and people of mixed heritage, as well as a totally gross oversimplification of the vodun religion? Vodun isn't even native to Zimbabwe. Reading your cutesy little stories it's like you just threw whatever "knowledge" of people of color you had into something that sounded sophisticated without any actual fact-checking.

Oh. Um. I’m sorry. I wasn’t trying to be racist. I was using what I learned in American history. I was trying to avoid that actually. o-o; I was tryign to include all POC and have the house ghosts as predominately POC instead of just all white people from Salem or just all white people in general. My attempt was being inclusive. I did fact checking, it depends on where you look voodoo/hudoo came from Africa but there’s no where the origins were and then it came to Haiti but it had to come to Haiti from Africa as well as from Africa TO the Carribean islands. Yes it’s an over simplification and I know that. Because to go into complete full detail about voodoo itself would have been four pages just into that story. Voodoo is predominately used for good and it’s practioners are held in the highest of regards. The things in the media like the voodoo dolls weren’t actually a thing, and when they were used it was to as good luck or good fortune, or a good spell. 

I am Native American so you can stop about Native Americans because the Native Americans got dicked over by white people the women were consistently stolen and assaulted. The only time they weren’t were by the French up in Canada. Shocker Canada wasn’t as disgusting as the U.S. 

I asked my POC friends in regards to the voodoo queen. None of them thought it was racist. Same with my hispanic friends.

However if more people from this POC group tell me that it is racist. Then I will gladly change things around. BUt just coming from some SJW who isn’t in those groups. YOu don’t really have a right to speak for those groups and attack me over what is, and isn’t racist. Because I have done my research. This is research that I’ve had for about 2-2 1/2 years now. Mostly coming from someone who is from the U.S Virigin islands telling me about what voodoo/hudoo is like on the islands and the stories associated with it. I get most of my stories or ideas from people who have talked to me about these things. 

If someone who is POC wants to talk to me about this and tell me about how/why it’s racist so I can correct than I gladly will. Because all you’re doing is attacking me without really saying how it’s racist. Which, in all honesties is sounding really childish.

Hmmm I mean let’s take a look at Marie Lavaeu who’s tombstone has voodoo queen on it. Not to mention;

Here’s some info on Marie Lavaeu

and yet more

I’m sorry you were saying?

Clearly you aren’t very aware of who Marie Laveau is and just how highly regarded and loved she was by her community. Here’s some links about voodoo/hudoo

What was that about voodoo not coming from Africa?

Hmmm. Yes. I see what you mean. I clearly. Have no idea that vodou is a religion and is meant for good. Not just some woolooolooo stuff.

Also you’re currently aware Doc Benton that you claimed was abelist on your page is actually an American myth and legend started on the East Coast and has been in numerous shows like Supernatural?

When you actually have an idea on what you’re talking about. Please come talk to me then.

YOU DUMBFUCK YOU WERE THE ONE WHO SAID THAT THERE WAS NO VERIFIABLE SOURCE FOR THE ORIGIN OF VODUN, AND IF YOU’LL RECALL YOU CLAIMED IT WAS FROM ZIMBABWE. NICE TRY CHANGING YOUR STORY USING FACTS I FUCKING CORRECTED YOU WITH. ALSO NICE TRY SLANDERING ME I’M NOT EVEN FUCKING FROM CANADA YOU IMBECILE. SO GOOD JOB THERE, YOU’RE WRONG ON ALL COUNTS. I AM A FUCKING HISTORY MAJOR WITH A CONCENTRATION IN THE EXPERIENCES AND HISTORIES OF AMERICAN MINORITIES AND FOR A WHITE PERSON I AM PRETTY KNOWLEDGEABLE ON THE IMPACT OF THE AFRICAN DIASPORA ON AFRICAN-ORIGINATING CULTURES, ESPECIALLY COMPARED TO YOUR CREEPY ASS WHO THINKS SUPERNATURAL IS A RESPECTABLE SOURCE FOR INFORMATION. NOT AWARE OF AMERICAN HISTORY? I’M CALLING BULLSHIT, I CAN SHOW YOU MY FUCKING DIPLOMA AND MY FUCKING TRANSCRIPT.

AND YEAH BECAUSE BEING ON SUPERNATURAL MAKES SOMETHING SOOOOOOOOO LEGIT TO BEGIN WITH.

Barely half of your sources are actually credible, you really used a website called “Scaryforkids?” I’m fucking laughing. What are you, five?

Also nowhere did I ever say shit about this Marie Lavaeu person. But, did you know that historically, Americans are highly prone to racism and cultural oversimplification of things they do not understand, and that’s what’s happening here? Somebody applied that incorrect term to her after her death because they did not have any understanding of her religion. THEY CALLED IT A CULT, THAT SHOULD BE A BIG ENOUGH FUCKING CLUE.  Accept that you’re fucking wrong about this and moreover STOP TRYING TO MINE FOR MY PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ORDER TO DISCREDIT MY ARGUMENT. THAT MAKES YOU THE LITERAL SCUM OF THE EARTH.

Leave me the fuck alone, don’t come to my fucking personal blog to try and slander me to further your own racist argument, and leave the fucking internet while you’re at it because you’re a shitty person

I am blocking your ignorant ass before you turn into a stalker. Fucking Canada, really. I’m from Miami you fucking dumbass. You tried to dox me and you fucking failed.

Hey guys, I’m white so racist bitchass says my objections to get being racist don’t count (according to her responses to Jules). Any POC followers want to try take the piss out of her and get it through her thick skull?

Monster High Fan Vote | Monster High

Hey guys!  Big thing here.  Monster High is doing a character poll for their next doll.  One of the characters (the bolded dude rocking the mermaid lineage) is a canon wheelchair user who absolutely defies all attempts to coddle him and limit his activities because of his device use.  Bad thing:  we think he’s being deliberately voted against by Mattel and that the poll is rigged in favor of an able-bodied character who didn’t even have a name before now.  So here’s the plan.  We up-vote him like hella, and hope that Mattel will get the damn message that representation matters and that includes individuals with disabilities. 

Even if you’re not into Monster High or doll collecting, this is a huge opportunity to get a foot in the door with a major brand and a major line (Monster High, at last check, is Mattel’s second highest grossing line, following only Barbie).  Please help us out!

Because we’re not allowed to own people anymore.

What do you call 64 white people in a room? A full blooded Cherokee.

from various reddit threads

at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke.  nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.

white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response.  tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.

I’m sorry did you save the doctor with cpr

Did you defeat a witch’s spell with a rhyming word from harry potter

Did you take care of the doctor in 1913 England when he didn’t even remember himself

Did you recognize the master before the doctor did

Did you save all of humanity’s ass from the master by spreading the story of the doctor?

No?

Then why don’t you stop being a little bitch about Martha Jones being a useless unneeded character

So, in the process of making a new playlist in iTunes because new music and jazz, I cracked myself up by remembering that at the Nerdlord and Cherii vow renewal ceremony a couple weeks back, my ass definitely walked down the aisle to Iron Infidel and we walked out to Olive Scribe.

Yup.  That was a thing.
