The Omitted Anti-slavery Clause of The Declaration of Independence
As we celebrate America’s declaring her independence from England, keep in mind that there is a portion of The Declaration of Independence which was omitted from the final version—The Anti-slavery Clause.

He [King George III] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it’s most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold.  He has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce; and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people for whom he also obtruded them thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.  [source]

Best tweet ever.

there goes my 4th of july post

black-kpop-fans:

Black kpop fans: Wow, kpop idols really love a lot of things black people created. I hope they also try learning about black culture and stop using hurtful stereotypes.

Non-black kpop fans: Oh my god, why are you complaining? They haven’t even done anything racist.

Black kpop fans: Maybe not yet, I just want them to see us as human beings and not only as musical/style influences.

Non-black kpop fans: Well, don’t expect that because in Korea, they aren’t taught about black people. You don’t need to teach them, if they did nothing wrong.

Kpop idol: *does something racist.*

Black kpop fans: I’m so hurt, this is why I wish they would educate themselves on black racism and black culture, so they didn’t do racist things, so I didn’t hurt and they were better people.

Non-black kpop fans: Korea and kpop don’t know any better, you can’t blame them for it.

Black kpop fans: But when we tried to teach them, you got mad at us, and now that they’ve done something racist, like we knew what was gonna happen, you’re still mad at us?

Non-black kpop fans: Just stop being so offended and stop trying to teach them. Their racism was a mistake, obviously. They didn’t know any better, they didn’t mean it, so you can’t be mad at them.

Black kpop fans: What the fuck? I can feel whatever I want to feel. I can be mad at people for disrespecting my race, culture, skin color, etc.

Non-black kpop fans: That’s just how Korea and kpop is, ugh! Black kpop fans are always so angry. Go away. You make everything a big deal.

(Basically, what I’ve noticed is, when black kpop fans try to get idols interested in black culture, other fans push them to the side but then when those idols do racist things, the same fans say they “didn’t know any better.” How would they, when every time we try to teach them beforehand, you tell us to shut up?)

Young Black Kid: “I want to travel and explore the world”

Parents: ”With what money?!”

“Do you got ‘travel and explore the world’ money?”
