Dreads as a Symbol of Black Culture
When non black people in the modern west wear dreadlocks, they are appropriating an aspect of black culture. This is a microaggression. Dreads and other natural hairstyles are undeniably deeply connected to black culture, and are therefore seen as a negative trait because of institutional racism. Black people lose jobs over this. They lose credibility in some cases. Non black people do not face the same consequences for having dreadlocks, and do not have the same cultural context to dreads. It is appropriation and harms the black community.
Black people straightening their hair is assimilation. Because of the aforementioned institutional racism and eurocentric western ideals, natural hair is not widely accepted. Therefore, black people often straighten their hair to assimilate (fit into, be accepted as part of, etc) into western culture. Straight hair is not deeply connected to nonblack culture, and does not have the same cultural context as dreads. It is not symbolic in any way to non black people, and if anything has been used to distinguish us from black people and further categorize society. Therefore it is not a microaggression or appropriation. It is assimilation and is not damaging to non black communities. Negative repercussions or discrimination for naturally straight hair is nearly unheard of.
Dreads and other black natural hairstyles are not a cultural norm. They are seen as untidy or dirty. This dates back to slavery and continues today. Dreads are and have been connected to black people in America because they form naturally with textured black hair, which is a unique trait not found in other hair types. Also, hair has been used as a way to "other" people. This happened with red hair and continues to happen with black natural hair. As a species, humans like to categorize and generalize people and things, and that is the heart of institutional racism. That is why dreads in many places are not allowed, or why French Muslim girls may not wear hijabs to school. When a non black individual dons dreads in America, they do so despite this context. They are not judged as harshly for their hair. They do not face the same stereotypes that black people face.
One might argue that nonblack individuals who have dreads are also judged negatively by mainstream society. While this is true, these stereotypes exist because of the connection with black hairstyles to exoticism (like afros, "voodoo magic"/witch doctor stereotype) and also to negative racial traits. Before the 1960s, dreads and afros were worn exclusively by black people. It wasn't "in vogue" so to speak for non black Americans to wear them. Now that there's a certain disconnect between dreads and black people, the negative connotations with dreads would extend to other races as well. The backlash against dreads has racist undertones, and would definitely affect non b Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

99.9% of the time you ">>{somepost}, dave u a fag" {somepost} isn't even me.

I would say you are the newest of fags, but you've been at this for about two months; there must be a few summerfags newer than you by now.

Other posters have tried to point out to you that no one will ever care, and you are a faggot. I think you should listen to them, because you have a homosexual fixation on me and you are the only one who gives a shit.

COVFEFE

N3X15 17/05/31(Wed)21:04 No. 767389

Have you ignorant plebs never heard of covfefe? It's a Saxon transliteration from the original Celtic 'coarveve' as derived from the Gaulish 'corefeurvfeffe'. It means (literally) "a field wherein the harlots and 'scapegraces of the village converge to rail incoherently against acts of God and Man". Chaucer wrote of "yon breinde coavfefe" in "The Town Crier's Tale" and the word was incommon usage until the mid 19th century when writers such as Dickens popularised the phrase "gaggle of screeching autists" that we use today.

It's been quite the covfefe, but it'll probably covfefe in about a week.

Am I the only person who pronounces this "kovfayfay" (like Spanish)?

What is more effective?

>Punching Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa

or

>Raping Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa

???

OP is of the opinion that raping them is more effective as a certain percentage of them will just an hero after having their prostate stimulated and milked + other Nazis/Alt-Right/Anti Anti-Fa men will no longer stand alongside other men they know have been overpowered by other men.

This effectively can dismantle any organization so long as you overpower those who are seen as leaders by theirfollowwrs or peers

The Last Letter


I feel deeply honoured and privileged to have been chosen to become a member of the Army’s “Special Assault Unit,” which embodies the glory of Japan. Having read logic and philosophy through my somewhat extended student life, I am sure that, based upon the idea of reason, triumph of liberty is inevitable to me, although I might sound like a liberalist. As stated by Croce in Italy, it is a universal truth that it is absolutely impossible to exterminate freedom, which is a fundamental human nature, and it will eventually win even though it seems to be temporarily oppressed.

It is a clear fact that authoritarian and totalitarian regimes may sporadically prosper, but they ultimately will perish. We can see the truth of that in the Axis governments. As manifested by the defeat of Italy under Fascism, not to mention Germany under Nazism, authoritarian governments are disappearing one after the other, crumbling like buildings without a foundation.

I believe that the universality of truth will eternally and permanently prove the greatness of liberty as is now being verified by reality and just as history has shown in the past. I will be more than delighted to find that my belief has been proven right even though that turns out to be a disaster for our nation. The current struggle, whatever it is, stems from ideology; and the result of a struggle can readily be predicted by the belief systems upon which the struggle is fought.

The ambition of making my beloved Japan become as mighty an empire as Great Britain has faded away. If the leading positions in Japan had been held by those who truly love Japan, my country would not have been driven into the situation it faces today. I have been dreaming of the Japanese people proud of themselves no matter where one may be in the world.

What a friend of mine once said is true: a pilot of the Special Assault Unit is merely a machine. He just steers the apparatus. He is only a molecule within a magnet that sticks fast to an enemy aircraft carrier, possessing neither personality nor emotions.

If one thinks about it rationally, this act is incomprehensible and, to try to put it in a plain expression, these pilots are, as they say, simply suicidal. Since I am nothing more than a machine, I have no right to put my case forward. However, I only wish that the Japan that I dearly love will someday be made truly great by my fellow citizens.

You have done something to your brain. You have made it high.
