    Fool’s Gold DJ/producer Treasure Fingers and fellow ATLien Bosco teamed up for the ecstatically house-y “Names,” a summer jam turned year-round banger that’s been turning heads on dancefloors around the globe, burning up Fashion Week runway playlists, and now - thanks to a blissfully glitched-out music video - taking over a screen near you. Channeling public access dance shows and webcam dance parties, it’s a hypnotic look at two of club music’s most distinctive voices. Tune in and turn up! http://smarturl.it/namesitunes

That was supposed to be just a quick and simple mermaid drawing, but then I did a background. What’s gotten into me?!

    zaynmalikssweetheart1997 asked: Okay that stupid ass Joan rivers twitter post? Racism has nothing to do with feminism. Shut up and sit down because your making yourself look ignorant.



    To the contrary, clueless white woman, racism has been central to white feminism from the beginning. Some quotes via The-Toast and this article:

    Susan B. Anthony:

    “What words can express her [the white woman’s] humiliation when, at the close of this long conflict, the government which she had served so faithfully held her unworthy of a voice in its councils, while it recognized as the political superiors of all the noble women of the nation the negro men just emerged from slavery, and not only totally illiterate, but also densely ignorant of every public question.” 

    Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

    “What will we and our daughters suffer if these degraded black men are allowed to have the rights that would make them even worse than our Saxon fathers?”

    More Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

    “American women of wealth, education, virtue and refinement, if you do not wish the lower orders of Chinese, Africans, Germans and Irish, with their low ideas of womanhood, to make laws for you and your daughters … awake to the danger of your present position and demand that woman, too, shall be represented in the government!”

    Belle Kearney:

    “The enfranchisement of women would insure immediate and durable white supremacy, honestly attained, for upon unquestioned authority it is stated that in every southern State but one there are more educated women than all the illiterate voters, white and black, native and foreign, combined. As you probably know, of all the women in the South who can read and write, ten out of every eleven are white. When it comes to the proportion of property between the races, that of the white outweighs that of the black immeasurably.”

    Anna Howard Shaw:

    “You have put the ballot in the hands of your black men, thus making them political superiors of white women. Never before in the history of the world have men made former slaves the political masters of their former mistresses!”

    Laura Clay:

    “The white men, reinforced by the educated white women, could ‘snow under’ the Negro vote in every State, and the white race would maintain its supremacy without corrupting or intimidating the Negroes.”

    Frances Willard:

    “Alien illiterates rule our cities today; the saloon is their palace, and the toddy stick their scepter. The colored race multiplies like the locusts of Egypt.”

    Carrie Chapman Catt:

    “White supremacy will be strengthened, not weakened, by women’s suffrage.”

    Rebecca Ann Latimer Felton:

    “I do not want to see a negro man walk to the polls and vote on who should handle my tax money, while I myself cannot vote at all…When there is not enough religion in the pulpit to organize a crusade against sin; nor justice in the court house to promptly punish crime; nor manhood enough in the nation to put a sheltering arm about innocence and virtue—-if it needs lynching to protect woman’s dearest possession from the ravening human beasts—-then I say lynch, a thousand times a week if necessary.”

    So please spare me with your ahistorical bullshit.

    Gaspar Yanga
    Gaspar Yanga—often simply Yanga or Nyanga—was a leader of a slave rebellion in Mexico during the early period of Spanish colonial rule.
    Known as the Primer Libertador de America or “first liberator of the Americas,” Gaspar Yanga led one of colonial Mexico’s first successful slave uprisings and would go on to establish one of the Americas earliest free black settlements.
