The Feminist Promise,
A passage from a book I read for my history class. I actually cried a little when I read it - it was so horrible. Hey guys. THIS is what you’re asking for when you ask for abortion to be outlawed.
And they have the nerve to call themselves ‘pro-life’….
June, 1964. Black children integrate the swimming pool of the Monson Motel. To force them out, the owner pours acid into the water.
And white folk wonder why
My mom was born in ‘64, kay? So, what that means is… THIS SHIT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO AND Y’ALL NEED TO STOP ACTING LIKE THE SHIT WE TALK ABOUT IS ARCHAIC AND OLD-HAT.
my mom was still in trinidad when this happened but seriously it could’ve happened to either my aunt or uncle who were 12 and 15/16 respectively
My ex fiance was a tween in the 80’s in South Carolina. He went to go swimming with his friends (all white as he had tragic light skinned negro syndrome). When they got to the pool the manager told him that NIGGERS were NOT allowed to swim in this pool. IN THE 80’s.
Whenever anyone is so foolish as to claim that segregation, and the skirimsihes that made up the civil rights era was “such a long time ago”. I remind them that my parents are in their early sixties and both graduated from segregated high schools. Its hardly the Cretaceous period and people with a willfully poor grasp of history insult the experiences people like my parents went through.
