Martin Luther King Jr.’s A Time to Break Silence. 

[For those of you who can’t be bothered to read the speech, I’ve found a video for you.]

Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now. I speak as a child of God and brother to the suffering poor of Vietnam. I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted. I speak for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home, and death and corruption in Vietnam. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as one who loves America, to the leaders of our own nation: The great initiative in this war is ours; the initiative to stop it must be ours.

This is the message of the great Buddhist leaders of Vietnam. Recently one of them wrote these words, and I quote:

Each day the war goes on the hatred increases in the heart of the Vietnamese and in the hearts of those of humanitarian instinct. The Americans are forcing even their friends into becoming their enemies. It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat. The image of America will never again be the image of revolution, freedom, and democracy, but the image of violence and militarism (unquote).

If we continue, there will be no doubt in my mind and in the mind of the world that we have no honorable intentions in Vietnam. If we do not stop our war against the people of Vietnam immediately, the world will be left with no other alternative than to see this as some horrible, clumsy, and deadly game we have decided to play. The world now demands a maturity of America that we may not be able to achieve. It demands that we admit that we have been wrong from the beginning of our adventure in Vietnam, that we have been detrimental to the life of the Vietnamese people.

"Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No, I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over.
This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here….. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. 
I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.” - Muhammad Ali, convicted in Houston of violating Selective Service laws by refusing to be drafted on June 20, 1967.

Some Irish Need Not Apply

Today I was spat on because I looked different.
‘And you’re a fucking chink!’
That’s how I was greeted today while hovering outside a hotel in Dublin City Centre while I waited for a friend. The group went by laughing, I exclaimed an exasperated ‘oh fuck off…’, one of the young boys then grabbed my face and shook it, I was spat on.
This was the first time I had received a physical racial assault – I was shook. I’m 21 and had become slightly desensitized to all the racial slurs I was thrown on a regular basis, but this was frightening. I felt humiliated taking the spit out of my hair and sadly no one came to my aid, or asked it I was ok, even on this bustling street.
I met with my friend and contemplated what had actually happened. The more I thought about it the more I got the courage to act. This was the time to do something, anything, to tackle the closemindedness of a nation who prided themselves on being ‘welcoming.’ There and then it truly was a lie.

For a nation that knows well the tribulations that immigrants face in their battle for social acceptance what may be even more revealing than the spike in documented acts of racism is how the country defines citizenship. Irish immigrants, or Irish citizens who were not born on the island, cannot automatically confer citizenship to their children. A child born in Ireland is not entitled to citizenship unless at least one of his or her parents or grandparents was an Irish citizen and was born in Ireland. This law came under public scrutiny last May, when a resident Chinese couple’s three-year-old daughter, who was born in Ireland, was denied re-entry after a visit to her grandparents in China (she was ultimately allowed to return).
 It is hard to imagine how equality can be attained when people born on the island to migrant parents do not have an automatic right to citizenship, while third-generation Irish-Americans are frequently granted citizenship rights based solely on their distant ancestral connection. 
In contrast, the injustice done to Ms. Kavanagh seems unlikely to be given the sustained attention and discussion it deserves. “People say that I’ve played the ‘race card’ by highlighting it so much,” Ms. Kavanagh told me. “I’ve also had people use the phrase ‘there are worse things happening in the world,’ which obviously emphasizes my point that there are so many people out there who don’t see racism in Ireland as an issue.”
The group that assaulted her has been identified by the police, Ms. Kavanagh said, but no charges were brought against them.

We All Clean Up White People’s Mess

zuky:

White people have carried guns, flags, chains, and germs all over the world claiming to “civilize” or otherwise improve non-white societies, but the non-racist reality is the exact opposite: wherever white people have gone, others end up cleaning up the mess, whether we’re talking about legacies of genocide or the destruction of ecosystems. Mass murder, mass dislocation, mass pollution, mass inequality, mass cover up. It’s not a stretch to say that the major planetary struggle of the next century will be cleaning up white people’s mess for the sake of human survival.

Sometime this summer, probably when as many Americans as possible are tanning on a beach and not paying attention, the White House is expected to release a version of a classified report on torture during the Bush years. Actually, what’s likely to become public is only the executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report; the entire thing, five years in the making, clocks in at about 6,700 pages, making it the most exhaustive account yet of what really went on in secret CIA prisons around the world.

South Korean Marines and U.S. Marines play Pin the Donkey and Spin the Bottle

Published on Aug 1, 2012 

Republic of Korea and U.S. Marines conducted a fire and maneuver exercise July 23 at the Nightmare Range, Republic of Korea during the Korean Marine Exchange Program 12-7. The exercise allowed both ROK and U.S. Marines to rehearse squad level tactics and fire the Mk 19 automatic grenade launcher and the M2 machine gun. The ROK Marines are with 8th Artillery Battalion, 2nd ROK Marine Division. The U.S. Marines are with 12th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force. Produced by Lance Cpl. James D. Pauly.



owning-my-truth:

Whenever a white person tells you that they “don’t see color,” “don’t see you as black,” etc. what they are really saying is that they do not see or respect you, your identity or your full humanity at all. For them, our identities and personhood must always be subjugated before whiteness, and there is no middle ground. To this end, they erase and expunge our identities in the service of their white emotional universe and personal comfort.

Whiteness is the default and only “normal” state of being in their minds. Blackness and other POC identities simply exist to be exploited, and ultimately erased and destroyed.

This isn’t compassion or some enlightened state of looking beyond race; rather, it is hatred of “the other” and white supremacy in action.

If you’re interested in knowing how racist white people are in this country, just ask any one of them to talk about korea and what they think of korea. and without fail, they’ll be extremely blunt with you and precisely show you how racist they are.

i have sincerely never seen before how white people feel so truly free to express their violent racism and white supremacist thought and attitudes.

You know I’ve decided not to be surprised by stuff like this anymore but I still have to smh

Can we talk about how Korea’s army could possibly destroy ours in a matter of minutes?

The fuck they doing this for?!

which army are you talking about? you mean north korea’s military or south korea’s military? if you mean north korea’s military with outdated coldwar tanks and planes from the 1940s, i don’t think they can destroy any modern military out there, including the united states and south korea’s.

why are you so disinformed?

instead let’s talk about the us military’s occupation with south korea, with some 30k troops and 80+ military bases. let’s talk about the regular massive joint military exercises with the south korean military and the us military right along the border on land and sea. let’s talk about about all those us commando training missions simulating regime change. let’s talk about all the violations by the us govt and the us military with every armstice and agreements between the two koreas since the war. let’s also talk about the us govt’s pacific pivot, with new bases being installed in okinawa and the return of the us military in the philippines. let’s talk about all the b-2 bombers equipped with nuclear warheads flying all over the asia pacific region and near north korea, let’s talk about nuclear submarines as well. let’s talk about all that and discuss who really is the threat here to peace and security in the asia pacific region. USFK GET THE FUCK OUT OF KOREA!
