First/second/third world terminology refers to whether or not a country was allied with the US during the Cold War. First world = allied; second world = opposed; third world = neutral

It literally has nothing to do with how “developed” a country is

These terms are outdated and we need to stop using them

holy shit

The ‘victim’ approach to the study of white women in the slave formation, therefore, has severe limitations… while white males were the predominant owners of slaves in the plantation sector, the same cannot be said for the urban sector. White women were generally the owners of small properties, rather than large estates, but their small properties were more proportionately stocked with slaves than the large, male owned properties.

In 1815, white women owned about 24 percent of the slaves in St Lucia; 12 per cent of the slaves on properties of more than 50 slaves, and 48 per cent of the properties with less than 10 slaves. In Barbados in 1817, less than five of the holdings of 50 slaves or more were owned by white women, but they owned 40 percent of the properties with less than 10 slaves…

White women also owned more female slaves than male slaves. The extensive female ownership of slaves in the towns was matched by the unusually high proportion of females in the slave population; female slave owners owned more female slaves than male slave owners….

From these data the image that emerges of the white female slaveowner is that she was generally urban, in possession of less than ten slaves, the majority of whom were female. That female slaveowners generally owned female slaves, indicates the nature of enterprises, and hence labour regimes, managed and owned by white women. It is reasonable, then, to argue that any conceptualization of urban slavery, especially with reference to the experiences of enslaved black women, should proceed with an explicit articulation of white women are principal slaveowners.

White feminists tend to conveniently forget this and pretend that they don’t benefit from white supremacy like white men (via thisisnotjapan)

If some of you go into YouTube or Google, you are going to see me described as ‘anti-sex’, ‘need a good fuck’, ‘hate sex’, etc. I want to say something. If I was here today to talk about the fast food industry. If I were to discuss the problems with fast food industry in terms of obesity, destruction to the environment, ill health, would anyone accuse me of being anti-eating? So why when I talk about the porn industry am I accused of being anti-sex? I’ll tell you why. It’s the perfect PR of the porn industry. They have collapsed porn into sex. It’s not. It is a representation of sex made in an industrial setting with a particular profit motive in mind.

Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke
