Chicago, Definitely, and Racism: Mikki Kendall @Karnythia I always forget that people think majority white areas in the US happened organically. Or that the majority white population is an accident 7/2/17, 7:14 PM 187 Retweets 354 Likes 10 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h Replying to @Karnythia Quick & dirty history lesson, without restrictive housing covenants & sundown towns & lynching & race barriers to immigration? Well... Mikki Kendall@Karnythia 1h The US as a whole would look a lot like Chicago. POC populations would be higher, the country would be majority POC 40 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h Throw in the attempted genocide of Indigenous nations & the stealing of their lands & you start to get an idea of how the US got this way. 2 1 36 Mikki Kendall@Karnythia 1h Now, this is why I get so annoyed at the myth that the US was ever a "white" country. It wasn't. Stolen lands, stolen people on those lands 4 m 47 113 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h Thousands of racist attempts to make it a white country later, all that shit did was delav the inevitable Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h Thousands of racist attempts to make it a white country later, all that shit did was delay the inevitable Rome wasn't all white either n31 O 82 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h In fact one of the ways that imperialism & colonization ends up playing out is that eventually the "Other" outnumbers the colonizer. 10 34 V 77 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h And hey, if you built your economy on taking resources from the people you marginalized while building a myth of opportunity? We want in 2 28 O 76 Mikki Kendall @Karnythia 1h Sooner or later? This is what marginalized people have to say Welcome to this stage! odinsblog: odinsblog: jazminsthoughts: A short lesson from @karnythia. I feel like even if this wasn’t a majority white country, white supremacy would still definitely function in a way that preserves itself. Bringing this back because redlining isn’t just some old-time practice from the past. Redlining is still going on today. In 2018. Banks are currently turning away qualified black homebuyers from affluent white neighborhoods. Banks are still denying home loans to black people with excellent credit when we try to buy in mostly white neighborhoods. Video: https://youtu.be/AqaCsJXUehQ It’s organized, institutional racism. Banks will give huge home loans to poorly qualified white people to gentrify historically black neighborhoods, but not the other way around.
Africa, Braids, and Facts: Facts that will blow your mind: Braids were used for enslaved women to draw (braid) maps on their heads to escape plantations Qafrokingdom DID YOU KNOW CORNROWS WERE USED AS MAPS FOR ESCAPED FORMERLY ENSLAVED AFRICANS. San Basilio de Palenque is a village in Northern Colombia about 50 miles East of Cartagena with a population of around 3,500 people. San Basilio de Palenque is one of several walled cities that were started by escaped slaves in the 17th century. The city was set up as a refuge for escaped slaves by escaped slave Benkos Bioho, it is also the only city that has survived and is still inhabited today. The people who live here now are mainly Afro-Colombians which are direct descendants of African slaves brought by the Spanish during the Colonization of the Americas. Benkos Bioho was born in Africa and claimed to have been a king there. Captured in Africa by the Portuguese and sold several times until being sold to a Spaniard in Cartagena. Benkos Bioho tried to escape several times before he finally succeeded. After his escape he formed a town with others that freed themselves. There they developed their own language called Palenquero. The language is influenced by the Kikongo language of Congo and Angola and also by Portuguese. He also formed an army and an intelligence network to help organize the escape of other slaves and to guide them to the liberated areas. One of the things he did was have the women shape maps in their cornrows. They were also used as symbols to deliver messages. Bioho also had the women collect seeds and put them in their hair as decoration. Later the seeds would be passed on to the village so they could start to grow their own crops. He was later called King Benkos grew his army of Maroons (African refugees who escaped slavery in the Americas and formed independent settlements). His army of Maroons started raiding Spanish plantations, farms, and ranches. King Benkos also had spies that alerted him to the movements of his enemies and because of this he was never defeated. Unable to defeat King Benkos and the Maroons the Spanish Governor of Cartengena offered a peace treaty. The peace deal was finalized but a few years later was called off after the Spanish discovered a plot King Benkos was organizing against them. The Spaniards captured Benkos & 👇🏾
