Impoverished Black and Brown communities do not exist for white people to enter, stay in for a week or so and then come out as though they’re saints because they hugged little Black and Brown kids. #stopthewhitesaviorcomplex2k14
James Brown is directly or indirectly responsible for the creation of about 6 different genres of music but I’ve got to hear about the fucking Beatles everyday.
The Beatles are also indirectly responsible for the creation of James Brown, so…
James Brown: Years active 1954–2006
Beatles: Years active 1960–70
WHAT are you even talking about. This is embarrassing.

the māori word for ‘ally’ is ‘haumi’, pronounced almost identically to ‘homie’.
transmisogynist colonial anthropologists tend to make a lot of the ‘fact’ that a lot of the cultures they’re producing a discourse on ‘only’ have trans identity categories for transfeminine AMAB people
the argument is that because our current, deeply colonial interpretation of historical data collected by literal white supremacist colonists doesn’t identify transmasculine AFAB people in colonial-era indigenous societies, that those identities never existed
this selective blindness is the result of settler discourses having, in most cases, almost completely obliterated our own traditions. settler transmisogyny would have been far more surprised to see indigenous trans women and to identify them as such than it would have been to see indigenous trans men (who they’d be more likely to have read as just Women Doing Things Men Usually Do)
then those people all die and the only records we have to look at are the settlers’ ones, which only mention the ~men performing women’s social roles~ becuase that’s what scandalised them
you can’t draw reliale decolonial conclusions about our precolonial societies from archives created solely by settlers, that’s two distinct transmisogynist alien perspectives and you’re not going to be interfacing with our genuine traditions at all.
