This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. Neutrality is key in this series, as i remove myself from my political and social status and opinions, stripping the problem to the most basic issue; taking an item that means a great deal to somebody and corrupting it.
Attention assholes: don’t sexually harass a girl when she can easily find you on Facebook and send your mom proof of your perpetuation of rape culture.
Moral of the day? Don’t mess with me.
Ufff yaar..That made my day!
I love this man.
AFP - The remains of dozens of Palestinians killed by Israelis in fighting following the 1948 foundation of the Israeli state have been found in a mass grave in Tel Aviv’s Jaffa district.
An official at the Muslim cemetery there told AFP that the grisly find occurred on Wednesday when ground subsided as workers carried out renovations, revealing six chambers full of skeletons.
Jaffa fisherman Atar Zeinab, 80, says that as a teenager during the final months of fighting in 1948 he helped to collect the Arab dead in the area south of Jaffa and bring them for hasty burial in the cemetery, the area’s main graveyard.
“I carried to the cemetery 60 bodies during a period of three or four months,” he told AFP. “We used to find the people in the street and most of the time we didn’t know who they were.”
He said that the danger of being hit by flying bullets or grenade fragments was such that bodies were dumped one on top of the other in existing family crypts in the cemetery, contrary to Muslim custom.
“We carried them early in the morning or in the night,” he added. “We put women, children and men in the same place… nobody prayed for these people.”
Jaffa was at the time a Palestinian town, but there was an exodus of most of its Arab population when it fell to the fledgling Israeli army and rightwing Jewish militias.
In 1950 it was incorporated into the city of Tel Aviv which was renamed Tel Aviv-Jaffa. Today it has a mixed Arab and Jewish population.
Around 760,000 Palestinians fled or were forced from their homes in what they call the “Nakba” or “catastrophe” of 1948 and which Israel refers to as its “War of Independence.”

Gonna hold my breath till a “western” government expresses rage over this.
I will bring flowers to your funeral.
I did it
I drew a hetalia oc with Pakistan
I couldn’t decide whether Pakistan should be a boy or a girl so I was like??? And halfway through colouring I decided Pakistan should have glasses??? I (accidentally) made dude Pakistan look like a politician???
And no yeah I saw ask-iran’s oc for Pakistan and I really liked her (I love everything on their, really) and well I wanted to try drawing Pakistan too??
I drew girl Pakistan with churidar pyjamas and a long shirt too because why not??
And then girl Pakistan with a patiala shalwar and short shirt suffering load-shedding. Also, if you can’t read my (magnificent) handwriting, the speech bubble says: ‘Uff it’s like,fiffty degrees Celsius and I haven’t had electricity for eighteen hours. Wow’
Should Pakistan be like a cynical aunty-type who offers excellent analysis of current politics while looking amazing in shalwar kameez?
And then I started thinking of Pakistan’s inter-country relations and I nearly died because India???China???Afghanistan??
ok bye i am too embarrassed

And here you see they typical white male politician, who’s head is so full of air his tie serves no other purpose than to tie his head to his neck so it doesn’t fly away.
