Well put by another: This picture sums up a lot of what we were talking about in class today. Funny with Columbus day having been a week ago, the whole holiday is pretty ridiculous. Read somewhere that especially Italian-Americans see Columbus day as a celebration of their heritage, say what?? Celebrating a day when a person found a land that was never lost!
soulfulremixed: Steve Biko was the founder of the Black Consciousness Movement in South Africa. In 1968 he cofounded the all-black South African Students’ Organisation. The organisation’s message spread from campuses to the general community, and in 1972 Biko helped found the Black People’s Convention. He was arrested many times for his anti-apartheid work and in 1977, died from injuries while in police custody. Joan Baez ~ Biko https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hn1QS1p94Oo
This quote illustrates that everybody is happy the way they are, and there is peace everywhere when in fact there isn't. Accepting that one's race should be continuously oppressed is unjust because by denying there is no racism, actions or behaviour happening around you is considered normal.
