#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Cleopatra was black, she was as black as Cicely Tyson. -Paul Mooney

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.

I’m kinda clingy once I get attached and I kinda expect you to reassure me and shit and tell me you care and remind me that you won’t leave because then if you don’t I just get annoyed and then I overthink everything and yeah it’s stupid but that’s how I am and I just care and I just want to know feelings are mutual and that you care too. I don’t want to have to wonder. Don’t keep me guessing, but most of all don’t waste my time.

Las fronteras son el principio de la desigualdad. A un lado y otro las cosas pueden ser muy distintas, como de hecho así es. Se encuentran repartidas por medio mundo obviando la necesidad humana de prosperar de tropezar con una mínima oportunidad a personas ahogadas en la inmundicia por la pobreza e injusticia social.
La reflexión parece más sencilla y compresible de construir que su puesta en práctica. A día de hoy, invitar a los cambios sociales no es lo mismo que, quienes tiene competencia y poder para ello, vayan  a propiciarlos .
En todo momento, sin excepciones, se sientes devorados por una mezcla de ambición y avaricia que hace olvidar que: “También hay sueños a este lado” / “Estoy en el límite” - zona mexicana de la frontera México-Estados Unidos Frontera.
