I decided to do a go go song as a Chuck Brown tribute this Black History month. Hope to treat Pharrell Williams’s amazing tune alright and add some DC flavor - I think ol’ Chuck would be proud.

O.A. - Vocals, keyboards, drums, conga jr’s, aux percussion, bass, choir, trumpets, trombones, production

Thanks to EMI & Songs Inc.

"Some historians told me 200 million Blacks died during slavery. The smallest number I got from anybody was 60 million. There were travel accounts of people who were in the Congo—that’s a wide river—saying, ‘We could not get the boat through the river, it was choked with bodies.’ That’s like a logjam. A lot of people died. Half of them died in those ships. Slave trade was like cocaine is now—even though it was against the law, that didn’t stop anybody. Imagine getting $1,000 for a human being. That’s a lot of money. There are fortunes in this country that were made that way."

Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists. 

#what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick

"good job disney" my ass, good job CHRIS SANDERS

Let’s not credit just Chris Sanders for this. This happened because they cast actual Hawaiian Actors like Tia Carrere and Jason Scott Lee to play Hawaiian characters, and allowed the actors to have input into writing the characters’ lines. 

This sort of authenticity comes from accuracy and authenticity in casting choices. The fact that Chris Sanders as direct/writer facilitated that does not mean he gets credit for the actors’ experience.

This is why diversity and representation in media matters.

never-surrender-to-the-world said: The Chinese were oppressed by the Japanese. As were the Koreans. Norther Nigerians oppress southern Nigerians. Most middle eastern countries oppress women. The Inca oppressed fucking anyone they met. Indians oppressed African slaves and Pakistanis. Pakistanis oppress Indians. Need I go on? White people aren't oppressive fucks. People in power with no respect for rights are oppressive fucks.

White people oppressed the Chinese AND the Japanese AND Koreans AND Nigerians AND other Africans AND the Middle Easterners AND Indians AND Pakistanis. If white people didn’t oppress a certain group directly, they made damn sure to facilitate one ethnic group’s oppression of another so they could profit from it.

And the people within those ethnic groups you mentioned? The ones you aren’t a part of in any way shape or form? They have to deal with oppression from white people ON TOP of dealing with oppression from other people of color; the last thing any of them need is for some bumbling white idiot with not even a basic understanding of history and U.S./European foreign relations (YOU) speaking over them.

Don’t act like you give 2 fucks about those people. You don’t. Whatever little research you did to gather those scraps of information was solely for the purpose of attempting to shut up people who refuse to stay silent about white privilege and the racial oppression that resulted from white imperialism.

"People in power with no respect for rights are oppressive fucks."

This is the only sensible sentence you wrote. And that’s only because I took it out of context of the fuckery that was your ask. Open your eyes and LOOK at which racial group is in power. Think about WHY they’re in power. The racial group that colonized the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australia and other Pacific Islands and made a point to rob, kidnap, and violate the people of those lands- THOSE are the ones in power. Until you quit denying that white people are the cause of the most widespread and long lasting form of racial oppression, you’re an oppressive fuck too.
