Kebaya is a traditional blouse-dress combination that originates from Indonesia and worn by women in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Myanmar, Singapore, southern Thailand. It is sometimes made from sheer material such as silk, thin cotton or semi-transparent nylon or polyester, adorned with brocade or floral pattern embroidery. Kebaya usually worn with a sarong or batik kain panjang, or other traditional woven garment such as ikat, songket with a colorful motif. Kebaya is the national costume of Indonesia, although it is more accurately endemic to the Javanese, Sundanese and Balinese peoples.
I’m wondering how the hell did “pick up a world history Book” become “American history” Can you people stop being so americacentric at least once in a pathetic discussion?
Found this gem on TumblrInAction and laughed hard.
Better than them at murder, treachery, underhandedness, culture jacking, trickery, evilness, brutality, devilment, fuckery, deceitfulness and being sun bleached.
Are you insinuating that murder, treachery, underhandedness, culture jacking, trickery, evilness, brutality, devilment, fuckery, deceitfulness and being sun bleached only happens by white people? Or even majorly by white people?
Because, boy do I have news for you.
That is truly what I’m saying.
So you’re gonna casually forget about Berber slavery of white people. Arab Slave Trade of whites, blacks, and other browns. Rape of Nanking. The culture “jacking” that’s happening right now all over the middle-east and predominantly Asia. The brutality and devilment of brown and black nationalists who are so keen on not letting people of their ethnicities and race mix with others. Nation of Islam butchering and making a fuckery of Islam by stripping away its cores and opting for supremacy instead of equality.
Go pick up a world history book.
How is a white person gonna tell a Black person to pick up a history book? Are you sure you want me to pick an American history book? The same history in which you and yours spilled blood from coast to coast? A land in which racism/white supremacy is the law? Are you sure you wanna bring up American history to a person who can trace his lineage back to the very slaves that set foot in SC? Are you telling me you want to compare who was the most brutal in just this land? A land where it was perfectly okay to kill people like me and even today it seems like no big deal to murder Black people as long as you stand your ground? Are gonna sit there and compare what my ancestors went through to what yours went through? You mean to tell me that they have photos of mobs of Black people standing around burn and battered bodies of white people swinging from trees? Where are the Black people that drag white babies down to the swamp so that they may use them as bait for the fuckin gators? And this is just off the top of my head and in one section of the country. Do we need to bring the complete lack of respect you for life worldwide? Are you serious?
Please forgive any typos as I am not able at this point to proof this.
Fuck you very much.
I’m not white.
I am a brown woman.
A woman of colour.
I live in the middle east.
I have always lived in the middle east.
My great grandfather was a black Arab slave. And my great grandfather wasn’t some dude from the mid-1800s, this was in 1900s. There are still slaves till this day but they’re still unheard of because the media doesn’t show it enough.
Fuck your shit for thinking I’m only talking about American history, because I’m talking about racism in history in general. Racism didn’t only happen to black people. Racism is horrible - from raping villages, destroying them, and taking identities for the pleasure of the oppressor - whether they were white, black, or brown. How fucking dare you come here and tell me you wanna open up an American history book when I already opened up my world history one. When I told you a brief sentence about white slaves and other atrocities, you come up with various points of history and mixing it up with the present today
Your ass doesn’t know shit. It is a big deal in the media. It might not get a national coverage, but there is more to it than national coverage. Local coverage happens all the time. Media is running, news sites are continuously updating. Many people give a fuck - hell a person from the middle east gives a fuck but you’re too blind to see because your rage is fading things out for you/. Go look through the child armies in several parts of Africa, go look at the explicit racism between blacks and whites there and how each have extreme hatred towards another.
You’re mixing up past and present as if they’re one. You are part of the problem for blurring the lines between calling out inequality and spewing hatred.
You know jack shit about what my ancestors went through. My ancestors were beheaded. My ancestors were raped. My ancestors had their homes burnt to the ground. My ancestors had to migrate for safety but they were specifically targeted for their lineage. I am still targeted for my lineage. I am specifically seen as filth by some people because of my ancestors. So don’t you come here and tell me that you want to compare ancestral sufferings because help me God I will tear you down. I know from my own suffering and my ancestors’ suffering that hate only begets hate, and the only way to defeat the oppressor is not to stoop to their level of atrocious mind-set.
So no, Fuck you for thinking I’m white. Fuck you for erasing my ancestors’ history as if you know me.
actually um you DO choose to be white your parents chose to have more white kids and the presence of the majority automatically oppresses the minority this is not complicated. Unless you are actively working against oppression you are working for it and you guys are sitting here CHOOSING to be white and not work to free POCs here and in the world so yeah your choice uvu
Just something to throw out there, generally the race( more like skin tone) that have a decreasing birthrate are white people.

The Empire of ancient Ghana
The empire of ancient Ghana created by the Mende (Soninke) with human habitation dating back to at least around 4,000 BC.
Ancient Ghana was located in what is now southeastern Mauritania and western Mali.
Today the area around Dar Tichitt in southern Mauritania has been the subject of much archaeological attention, revealing successive layers of settlement near what still were small lakes as late as 1200 BCE. At this time people there built circular compounds, 60-100 feet in diameter, near the beaches of the lakes. (‘Compound’ is the name given to a housing type, still common today, in which several members of related families share space within a wall.) These compounds were arranged into large villages located about 12 miles from each other. Inhabitants fished, herded cattle and planted some millet, which they stored in pottery vessels. This was the last era of reasonable moisture in this part of the Sahara. By 1000 BCE the villages, still made up of compounds, had been relocated to hilltop positions, and were walled. Cattle were still herded, more millet was grown, but there were no more lakes for fishing. From 700-300 BCE the villages decreased in size and farming was reduced at the expense of pastoralism.
Architecturally, the villages of Dar Tichitt resemble those of the modern northern Mande (Soninke), who live in the savanna 300-400 miles to the south. These ancient villagers were not only farmers, but were engaged in trade connected with the salt and copper mines which developed to the north. Horse drawn vehicles passed through the Tichitt valley, bringing trading opportunities, ideas, and opening up the inhabitants to raids from their more nomadic northern neighbors. Development of the social and political organization necessary to handle commerce and defense must have been a factor in the subsequent development of Ghana, the first great Sudanic empire, in this part of West Africa.
It is very plausible to think that the people of antiquity in Ancient Ghana may be connected to the Ancient peoples who lived in the Sahara before it turned into dessert. Additionally Habitation of the region where the Ghana empire existed is much older than Western academics are aware of.
