Man you know Dracula was invented by white people. Homies weakness was a seasoning, the sun and Jesus Christ
GUYS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO HOW THEY ARE ATTACKING AND RAIDING MUSLIM HOMES IN AUSTRALIA
the police are attacking muslims in their homes in the middle of the night, arresting women in their beds, men in the morning, attacing and humiliating us all
life is getting scary here for the muslims
Summary: Apparently they were trying to find local ISIS supporters and foil an alleged plot to carry out what PM Tony Abbot called “demonstration killings” to show that ISIS isn’t just located in the Middle East. They claim to have intelligence that informed this decision to raid. The raids were carried in 12 suburbs and involved around 900 police officers. They arrested 15 people during the raids, but have only released the details of one prisoner who had direct contact with the Australian Muslim who they know is an active recruiter for ISIS.
To me this sounds like an incredibly overblown response to an issue that could’ve been solved by one arrest. Please keep in mind that the Washington Post, the last source, is more conservative. Since these raids have happen, protests have erupted all over Australia and the Muslim Australian community is understandably fucking pissed. Don’t let this go unnoticed.
this is what i knew would happen once they raised the “threat level” to “high”
it’s also a case of the government using islamophobia to pump up a sense of fear (despite the threat being basically non existent here) that they’re using to distract from the actual issues of the shitty things they’re doing to our country
"First non-white Pokemon protagonist" yes the white children of the KANTO region in Japan, all of whom are white
Yes, because japan totally doesn’t have an obsession with valuing paleness over other skin tones to such an extent that a majority of anime is severely whitewashed, which has led to some intense body issues and casual racism in japan. Presentation of characters is just as important as the characters themselves.
THIS IS A COMMON ASSUMPTION MADE BY WHITE/WESTERN FEMINISTS.
Asian people don’t want to be pale because they want to be white, Asian people want to be pale because in history, it meant that you were of higher class and that mindset had it’s lasting effect.
The idealness of pale skin in Asian cultures is a product of COLORISM and has been present in Asian society for a LONG ASS TIME, before white people had more of a presence in Asia. Yes colorism has racist roots in American society, but don’t get it twisted when it comes to Asian beauty ideals.
Not to say that valuing paleness is a good thing (it’s totally not, which is why this is covered in colorism), but you gotta make sure you’re informed. JUST BECAUSE Asian ideals of beauty line up with eurocentric values of beauty does not mean that the colorism prevalent in Asian society was primarily influenced by the west.
suggested reading more stuff and here’s one about how western and traditional values of farinness both take a role (but honestly the part there they write about eurocentric beauty refers to mostly colorism in american culutre, and dosen’t really touch on western imperialism on eastern cultures anyways)
i am an east asian man who has lived all aroun east and south east asia and i can confirm this fact.
