KNOW YOUR HISTORY: Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.Thanks to Abstrakt Goldsmith for this nugget of history that most of us never learned in school.

One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant.

This is the proud culmination of many, many, hours of work. I’ve spent days reading, compiling, archiving, and sorting over 460 educational links into one centralized resource. It covers topics, simple to complex, on the following subjects:

  • Class
  • Feminism
  • Race
  • Trans
  • Sexuality
  • Disability
  • General Social Justice

List of Educational Resources

If anyone has any links or improvements they’d like to add, put it in my inbox or add a comment on one of the pages. All contributions are welcome, but I’m mostly looking to improve the ‘sexuality’ page as there are only 5 links there :(

Can you or shuttersmiley please tell me why there is no such thing as racism against white people?

I have some questions for you, actually.

Are you systemically oppressed?

Do you have a history of genocide, enslavement and oppression which still actively leaks and informs your daily life and opportunities?

Is the worse discrimination you’ve experienced being called a cracker in the 6th grade?

Meanwhile;

Whoa, it does not stop

x

Racism against White people does not exist. Me calling you a cracker might hurt your feelings but it could never oppress you. Was never used to oppress you. Your history is being Oppressor, not the oppressed.

Meanwhile you calling me a racial slur only enforces the engraved white is right superiority that is literally seeped in everything, from beauty standards to a human value and innocence. All around the world.

You have a million and one links provided for you. Now go learn.
