Guys, this has been thoroughly debunked since 2000, and it does the statue on the left there a huge disservice to treat her as an unwanted copy. That’s Lady Liberty of St. Maarten, an homage from 2007 (post-dating the debunking, even) that was dedicated to the anniversary of the ending of slavery there: The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor is a representation of Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, with bonus American iconography: HOWEVER: Lady Liberty in New York is not based on a white woman, either.  She’s a Muslim Arab woman, at least in terms of the modeling of her face. Her face was reused from an abandoned project to build a colossal statue of a modern Egyptian Arab peasant woman near the Suez Canal (as verified by the Smithsonian, no less). While she wasn’t originally dedicated specifically for immigrants, the poem “The New Colossus” was added specifically because of the position she occupied in the harbor and the symbolic visual power she would have to immigrants coming in. The author, Emma Lazarus, was Jewish. It’s important to fight back on the whitewashing of history, because it happens left and right, but it shouldn’t happen at the cost of misinformation that treats Lady Liberty of St. Maarten as an unwanted prototype rather than a powerful monument in her own right and, ironically, claims that she’s now a white woman when she’s not while also ignoring the powerful influence of the Jewish-American community on the final version.

I’ve been taking too long to do data entry and I’m not good at actually doing analysis so it’s time to start naming and shaming. @thatpettyblackgirl is a blog that I’ve been observing for a while that has a really interesting pattern of behavior. Namely, posting a bunch of shit like this. Remember that tweet about Olive Garden supporting Donald Trump that was debunked? Well when it circulated on tumblr two weeks ago it was because of @thatpettyblackgirl You know the misreported post about the school lunch program that refused donations from a local businessman? That was a different blogger but thatpettyblackgirl has circulated another version of it. That other blogger has a posting history that’s full of the same kinds of things thatpettyblackgirl posts - lots of reposts from twitter, lots of screenshots from other sites, not a lot of commentary, and things that are decontextualized enough to make them seem worse than they are or to totally misrepresent the actions depicted (like this reposted video and tweets indignant about a man being arrested when the very specific purpose of his protest was to get arrested). It reminds me of that post about coconut husks as a wood alternative that’s been circulating recently - a screenshot of a white man above a news article is posted with the complaint that white people “discovering” coconuts after disregarding them as useless when the article is about a new method of processing coconut husks that allows them to be put to new uses. That blog is fascinating. And has a lot in common with thatpettyblackgirl - both of them reblog their own posts at a rate that’s higher than I’ve seen on most tumblrs (btw, you should know that a while back I asked for volunteers who would let me explore their tumblrs and while my research sample isn’t random it is a collection of small and large blogs and none of them have *checks notes* reblogged their own post of a bunch of screencaps of a tweet storm five times in the last couple of days). Both of them tend to post screencaps, neither one really writes much. They reblog a lot of memes, and both have some pretty big textposts that are just straight rip-offs of tweets (”bi folks have you eaten today? answer quick and iced coffee doesn’t count” is one of thatpettyblackgirl’s recent popular textposts and it’s ripped off from twitter.) They also reblog eachother a fair amount - along with @whyyoustabbedme and @endangered-justice-seeker, who ALSO have really weird posting patterns. Also all four of those blogs are part of a group of nine blogs that were created in a three-week period of 2017 that I’ve been watching that don’t seem to follow a pattern of normal tumblr behavior and that also post an awful lot of incorrect viral posts and are staggeringly popular (for clarity: blackqueerblog is not one of the nine created in that time period).

And you know what that goes against every fucking principle of my cold little anarchist heart. These blogs are full of despair - they look like they’re full of cute memes and fresh news but they’re a poisoned pill telling you not to bother because you can’t fight the system. They’re not offering help, they’re training you not to bother fighting for your rights (there was a popular post about how the Hong Kong protesters are light years ahead of US protesters - that post didn’t talk about mutual aid or sharing tactics, it just said “people in the US would never” and left it at that, like we can’t learn from each other and share information across borders) Fucking.

I wonder what bits of todays common knowledge will be lost to time: aethersea: teamstopfightingassholes feitanswife: stlin: ella-raene: systlin: beautifultoastdream: stlin: GUYS THEY FIGURED OUT THE ROMAN CONCRETE RECIPE THAT MAKES IT IMMUNE TO SEAWATER http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/mystery-of 2000-year-old-roman-concrete-solved-by-scientists/ar BBDO5V I KNOW RIGHT?!??? I can't help but feel this is one of those things where we had actual documents saying "it was done with this and this", and some old rich white guys looked at it and went "oh mirth, the ancients were so silly They probably wrote this basic stuff down and the actual builders had Secret Techniques we need to Discover For a long time, archeologists didn't know how greek women did their high-piled braids and hair. There was a word that translated to "needle" in the descriptions. They went, "seems like we'll never know." Then a hairdresser took a fucking needle (big needle) and did the fucking thing you do with needles, which is sew - and by sewing the braids into place, she replicated ancient styles. The Egyptians had diagrams of construction steps for their pyramids. Archeologists went "oooh, ancient primitive people, how they do this?" LITERALLY MYTHBUSTERS OR THE OLD DISCOVERY CHANNEL or someone went "what if we did the thing the pictures said they did" AND GUESS FUCKING WHAT. GUESS FUCKING WHAT Also that thing with native Americans saying squirrels taught therm how to get sap for maple syrup, and colonizers going "that's a myth swea Sincerely, if the scientists had to do actual analysis like spectroscopy or whatever, kudos, and no flame. But swear to god, if all these years, we've had the recipes and there was just this fuckin institutional bias against just TRYING THE THING THEY SAID WOULD WORK, HELLFIRE AND DEMENTIA In this case, it was more they had roman writings saying what went into it but figured there was some secret because when they followed roman recipes it never turned out quite right. Because the sources left by Romans always just said to mix with water Because, if you were a Roman??? Obviouslyyou knew that you used seawater for cement. Duh. That's so obvious that they never really bothered specifying that you use seawater to mix it, because it wasn't necessary, everyone knew that. But then the empire fell, other empires rose and fell, time passed, and by the time we were trying to reconstruct the formula the 'mix the dry ingredients with seawater' trick had been forgotten, until chemical analysis finally figured it out again. It's sort of like the land of Punt, a ally of Egypt that's mentioned all the time, but we don't actually know where it was located. Because it isn't written down anywhere. Why would they write it down? It's Punt. Everyone knew where Punt was back then. It'd be ridiculous to waste the ink and space to specify where it was, every child knows about Punt. 3000 years later and we have no damned clue where it was, simply because at the time it was so blindingly obvious that it was never written down. So moral of storv is be specific I was thinking it was stupid that they didn't specify seawater but then I had the thought that we don't specify to use chicken eggs in baking because DUH so we write eggs 2000 years in the future people are going to be making scrambled fish eggs and crying be the ancient recipes make no sense I wonder what bits of todays common knowledge will be lost to time

Bernie Sanders was the only candidate to say black lives matter. He also didn’t hesitate. The only one to mention Sandra B., give specific statistics concerning blacks and Latinos …….

Let's put that question to Senator Sanders. SANDERS: Black lives matter. (CHEERING) SANDERS: And the reason -- the reason those words matter is the African American community knows that on any given day some innocent person like Sandra Bland can get into a car, and then three days later she's going to end up dead in jail, or their kids... (APPLAUSE) SANDERS: ...are going to get shot. We need to combat institutional racism from top to bottom, and we need major, major reforms in a broken criminal justice system...

And, I intended to tackle that issue. To make sure that our people have education and jobs rather than jail cells. (APPLAUSE) Nobody came close to Sanders on the topic that will decide the Democratic nomination. Also, nobody came close to Bernie Sanders on the issues of wealth inequality, climate change, perpetual- wars, and the impact of these challenges upon our nation. Political wonks who believe Clinton stole the show most likely never predicted Sanders to pose such a serious challenge at this point, therefore being "polished" or prepared is viewed as advantages for Clinton. In reality, it was obvious that nobody was going to back down, and the winner of the debate had to do more than simply keep their cool or answer tough questions. The winner had to move the issues and set the tone for the evening, which is what Bernie Sanders did on Tuesday. If you disagree with my assessment, or if you feel this is merely hyperbole, then imagine the Democratic debate without Vermont's Senator.
