QuestionWow, you've shown me so many examples of people of color in medieval art, that i'm suprised that even professers of history seem to deny the there were POC in medieval europe! My question though, is this: has there been any research done as to when this white-washing of medieval europe began? Answer

medievalpoc:

Actually, my next queued post addresses that in detail, particularly in regards to Art Education.

Quick-n-Dirty Version: it began during “The Enlightenment”, during colonization and the beginnings of chattel slavery. The idea of “White People” had just been invented, along with the idea of White supremacy. Basically, all the leading “scientific minds” directly benefited from genocide, kidnapping people an enslaving them, and stealing their land, resources, and skills.

And in order to justify this, it was very important to create this idea not just that “these people are in a subordinate position now”, it had to be retroactive. As in, “these people have never had any accomplishments, their culture is primitive, worthless, ugly, uninteresting, therefore whatever we do to them is okay/for their own good/helping them/better than leaving them to their own depravity” et cetera.

The amount of “science” devoted to proving that people of color were inherently inferior to white people was like…pretty much the ENTIRETY of “science” from the late 1700s to….well. 

For example:

This asshat got his degree from Harvard on the premise that “Hispanics have lower IQs than American Whites” IN 2009.

And coincidentally, Arizona banned “Ethnic Studies”, specifically a Mexican-American Studies Curriculum, upheld by a judge as “constitutional” in March. 2013.

And the consistent disenfranchisement of specifically Mestiz@  and other “not white” Mexican Americans has been documented by sociologist Richard Shingles, who says:

Shingles concludes it is an American problem brought on by the history of the nation’s oldest and largest Mexican American communities, a history that started with conquest and has excluded generations from the benefits of development. “Our past cannot be separated from our future.”


See how that works?

No past, no history, no context, just a huge group of people that are somehow “inherently inferior”, and coincidentally not historically f*cked over for hundreds of years. It’s about blaming the victims of racism for suffering from the results of racism.

That’s why they teach whitewashed history.

Check out the Micro - the first consumer-oriented 3D printer.
I bet you’ve seen 3D printers before, and thought they were pretty kickass.  Unfortunately for most of us, 3D printing seems like something off of the Starship Enterprise.  But that’s getting to be less and less true.  Check out M3D’s “Micro” 3D printer - the first truly consumer-oriented 3D printer that you can buy for around $300.  
I had the opportunity to visit M3D at the National Science fair, where M3D talked about their device and let me take pictures.  Read more about the Micro here, and check out some of the amazing models it can build.

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE

The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.

Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.

Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:

Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.

People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.

she tried to file a police report, hahahahaha! foolish.

Here is a pic of Grace Jones shoving cake into Divine’s mouth at what I believe was Grace’s 30th birthday party…you’re welcome!

It’s like “The Creation of Adam,” but relevant to my interests.


Oh. My. God.

I love the earthy colors in this outfit, but I didn’t really have anywhere to wear it so pictures will do.  Also the manager of the local sushi place was so impressed with my shitty japanese that he gave me his number, that made my day lol.
