Native American Council Offers Amnesty to 220 Million Undocumented Whites

Native American Council Offers Amnesty to 220 Million Undocumented Whites | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
A council of Native American leaders has offered partial amnesty to the estimated 220 million illegal white immigrants living in the United States.

At a meeting of the Native Peoples Council (NPC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday, Native American leaders considered several proposals on the future of this continent's large, unauthorized European population. The elders ultimately decided to extend a pathway to citizenship for those without criminal backgrounds.

"We are prepared to offer White people the option of staying on this continent legally and applying for citizenship," explains Chief Wamsutta of the Wampanoag nation. "In return, they must pay any outstanding taxes and give back the land stolen from our ancestors.

"Any white person with a criminal record, however, will be deported in the next 90 days back to their ancestral homeland. Rush Limbaugh will be going to Germany. Justin Bieber will depart for Canada. And the entire cast of Jersey Shore will be returning to Italy."

High School Teacher Taught His Class A Simple Yet Powerful Lesson About Privilege

High School Teacher Taught His Class A Simple Yet Powerful Lesson About Privilege | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
If you're reading this, you probably have some privileges, which you're not aware that you have most of the times. What's more, probably you think so many things are for grantes: such is the nature of privilege.

It's a bit difficult to understand, even for adults. So, how to make kids in school aware of what they have? A teacher did it so simple, that everyone got it. Don't miss this lesson in pics!

“we never gave up our power”: a conversation with Naomi Sayers

“we never gave up our power”: a conversation with Naomi Sayers | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
Naomi Sayers is an Indigenous feminist from the Garden River First Nations, just east of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, who has also worked as a sex worker in the north of Canada. Naomi shared with A Kiss for Gabriela that some of her current work advocating for the rights of Indigenous people in the sex trade springs from a 2012 workshop organized by the sex worker organization Maggie’s in Toronto on public education and challenging stigma. After attending the workshop, Naomi started telling her own story using her own words and sharing about her own experiences in sex work, challenging the messages she had heard for so many years from authority figures–counselors, doctors, nurses, and the justice system–that indigenous women are victims and incapable of deciding what is right for them.

We can change the building but we can't change those the government governed public schools just by asking , those I have encountered with and or their attorneys want respond and by the laws of NC even if they commit certain crimes such as attendance law violations there is no laws on the book which states they are accountable but the parent(s) , guardian(s) and even student(s) are accountable if the student misses 10 or more days of school which is not excused per school principal.

Putting Hypersexuality to Work: Black Women and Illicit Eroticism in Pornography

Putting Hypersexuality to Work: Black Women and Illicit Eroticism in Pornography | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

"This article focuses on the labor marginalization of black female performers within the pornography industry. Their representations and experiences as sex workers are shaped by a racialized and gendered sexual commerce where stereotypes, structural inequalities, and social biases are the norm. Black women are devalued as hyperaccessible and superdisposable in an industry that simultaneously invests in and ghettoizes fantasies about black sexuality. In light of feminist arguments against the victimization of women by pornography, I have attempted to show that black sex workers, while facing multiple axes of discrimination and harm, also employ hypersexuality and illicit eroticism to achieve mobility, erotic autonomy, and self-care."
