a shocking but not unwelcome twist
Money means flesh in your hand
Money means flesh in your hand
When you pay, your a servant
You deserve it

I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers.
For fuck’s sake, we could bring more attention to the incredible civilizations of Mali and Ghana, or bring less-known Black composers, especially because both of these things are ignored because of racism…oh wait, nah, let’s have yet another goddamn tantrum about how Beethoven and Cleopatra were totally 100% Black by modern USA standards, and Egyptian Arabs weren’t invented until the middle ages.

seriously though. the entire african continent has been a foundation of human civilization just about since human brains became an evolutionary focal point. there is so much to talk about that doesn’t involve gross ethnocentric simplification or just outright wrongness about entire civilizations and histories. here’s some starting points:
-the kingdom of punt (ancient somalia, one of egypt’s trading partners; more on the extensive history of advanced kingdoms and civilizations of somalia)
-the ghana empire, most likely responsible for the domestication of the camel and thus the shaping of hundreds of civilizations
-the empire of mali, an incredibly wealthy and advanced civilization (read up on musa i too)
-the djolof empire
-the songhai empire, where people came from as far away as italy to trade and do business
-the sayfawa dynasty, one of the longest lived in human history, of nigeria.
-the nok culture, considered to be one of the most refined ancient cultures ever discovered, as evidenced by their art and production of terracotta. the nok also appear to have discovered iron smelting completely independently of any outside influence, or of an intermediate bronze period, which is incredible.
-the ethiopian empire, which should frankly need no introduction to people interested in ancient african civilization.
just… go from there. don’t just take for granted what tumblr tells you. read the rest of africa’s history. there are and have always been peoples on that continent that could run circles around the egyptians in terms of wealth, advancement, technology, and military might. ancient egypt was ancient egypt; ancient egyptians do not fit into current day western-centric racial categories, no matter what they may or may not have looked like. pretty much the entire rest of the world, including people currently living on the african continent, do not fit and do not want to fit those categories. africa is not and has never been some empty expanse of nothing but jungle and poverty. you do not need ancient egypt’s flash in the pan existence to make that true.

The way people trip over themselves to find an “acceptable” form of porn is fucking mind blowing. You show them the statistics, you show them the rates of abuse and rape and drug use and trauma and everything else that happen to women in the porn industry, and they can’t stop. It’s not enough. Their orgasms are STILL more important and they bend over backwards to shove it in your face how little they care by asking about “queer” porn, about “feminist” porn, about whatever. Desperately searching for a loophole so they can keep up watching porn. It’s fucking sickening.

I don’t know how you could ever be more sterotypically innocent than to be a 91-year-old Vatican librarian. How do you have 8 pounds of fucking coke in your car.

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
