Today marks 14 years since Muhammad Al-Durrah, the 12 year old Palestinian boy was killed by Israeli forces as his father tried to shield him.
For 45 minutes Israeli forces fired as Jammal Al-Durrah tried to shield his son shouting “Don’t shoot” before they were both eventually shot, Muhammad fatally. A paramedic was killed and another wounded whilst trying to assist them.
I remember watching this on television as an 8 year old. The words “Mat el walad” or the boy is dead screamed by people surrounding them still resonate in my ears.
Today, Muhammad would have been 25.
We will never forget.
"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"
Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently
Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.
At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."
The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.
This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media.
We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.
Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.
You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.
So if you list out the double of numbers starting from 1 (1+1=2, 2+2=4) you can sum up every single number out there
What if we wanted to do, something complicated like 17x25?
Double the 2nd number. So 25+25=50, 50+50=100, and so on
Circle the corresponding numbers. So 1 pairs up with 25 since they are on the same line. Same goes for 16 and 400.
Add up the numbers on the right side. 400+25= 425. 17x25 also equals 425.
Watch the rest of the video for how they did division. You may also like this post on why the Chinese number system may make learning math easier & faster
Let’s remember, Jesus was a Jewish man of color, born homeless to an unwed teenager, who spent his formative years as an illegal immigrant before returning to his home country to hang out with twelve men, prostitutes, and socially untouchable tax collectors while he taught a radical social doctrine of equality, love, and forgiveness that included paying taxes, free healthcare, and the sharing of resources within a community.
canon Jesus is better than fandom Jesus
Lmao, fandom Jesus
When you do the math it just doesn’t add up. A movie costs about $13.75. Plus parking and snacks. On average, I’m spending about $25 every time I go see a movie. I usually see a movie at least 4 times a month. That’s $100 a month. Multiply that by 12 months and I’m spending $1200 a year on movies alone. That’s rent money.
I’m wasting rent money on these films that purposefully exclude me. Why would I do that? That’s completely insane.
If I took that $1200 every year and put it in my savings account I could invest in my own original content. I wish I’d thought of doing this years ago. I’d probably be directing a feature film by now. But as they say, there’s no time like the present.
I haven’t been able to really enjoy all-white movies/shows in years. If we all started doing this, Hollywood would actually have to listen and start casting with diversity and maybe even :gasp: make shows and films featuring all/almost-all POC.
