ooc: Reblogging because holy shit.
I aspire to be this woman when I’m older.
This woman was born before women were legally allowed to vote.
So don’t think for a second that she’s joking when she sees you trying to take that right away, Republicans.
Apparently depression ages you on a cellular level
Why do I even try
I feel like I’m just letting people become potential triggers
Jesus christ I stay up for one night and it’s like I’ve made no progress at all
Anyone who lets me be awake after 9 I can no longer fuck with

This is PERFECTION
Two Algerian teenagers got physically attacked, in a Parisian suburb (in a mostly Jewish neighborhood), by around 30 or so young Jewish people who, while beating them up, were calling them “dirty Arabs” and were telling them things like “You have nothing to do here. This is our neighborhood!” (x) along with shouts of “Israel! Israel!” (x). Absolutely no mention of it in most mainstream medias. Just imagine what the medias would have said if what had happened was 30 Maghrebi people beating up two Jewish youths while shouting “Palestine! Palestine!”.
Now what was done here was blatant and awful and should be condemned, but that second part was ridiculous, you don’t have to wonder what the media would do with anti-Semitic violence accompanied by screams of “Palestine! Palestine!” because it actually happened.
Someone here can’t get sarcasm… I know it happened and what did French medias do when it happened? Using racialized anti-Arab language, blaming antisemitism on North African immigration, speaking about “Muslim antisemitism” so that French Muslims could be scapegoated for French antisemitism etc. Something honest anti-racist activists (several high-profile Jewish activists among them) all pointed out. So, yes, I don’t actually have to wonder because every intellectually honest person who knows a little about the current situation in France knows how it happens.
Get to notice freaking sarcasm and inform yourself about France in the process.
