Travel With Me!
This is a meme we need!
My response to a racist and ignorant post (top picture) that I saw on Facebook.
The following are all examples of peoples whose livelihoods were destroyed by European settlement or conquest. Most of these “neighborhoods” are discussed more in depth in the Racism: A History series that can be found for free on YouTube which was ironically done by the BBC.

IN YOUR FACE! ~ Looks like the Sistas kicked butt this week making grand slams in various arenas. On Saturday, Serena Williams won her second French Open and then gave her victory speech in French. Earlier in the week, First Lady Michelle Obama had to put a rude heckler in her place, effectively shutting down the ongoing disrespect on both sides of the political isle. On the same night, Kerry Washington set the record straight during an online chat, clarifying a reporter’s question about living in a post racial society. The very next day, former US Ambassador Susan Rice was named as President Obama’s National Security Adviser. This appointment came after a year’s onslaught of unfair criticism by the national news media. Overall, it looks to me like these four graceful, intelligent, and shrewd ladies WON the week.

I don’t necessarily mean friends that live recklessly or dangerously. I make it a point to never allow myself to [...]
