So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s beenseveral articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven.
Good job Internet.
Thank you for this!
Finally a rebloggable version of this idiotic post.
#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
at a loss for worsse. smh some white people are so sad
They don’t want to tell us to know about the Moors who were basically a group of elite black people who traveled into Europe, decades before European explorers went out into the world themselves, and basically taught them everything they know over the centuries. They don’t want to tell us about how all their scholars and great scientists from way back then went to Egypt to study under black teachers. They don’t want to tell us how while their ancestors were living in caves, there were already flourishing black kingdoms and civilizations. Ethiopia is one of the oldest, oldest kingdoms in the world—might be even older than some Asian kingdoms. They won’t tell you about the great kingdom of ancient Kush and how it helped connect north Africa to the Arabic world. They will not tell you about the thousands of black female warriors or black female warrior queens haling from the great kingdom of Nubia. They will not tell you how black armies from African had already visited South America, and left all types of artifacts and whatnot to prove it. They don’t want anyone know how black people indirectly helped these white “greats” reach success. They don’t want us to know that once upon a time black people made the world go round; because if black people knew today, then they’d take a better look at the capabilities they themselves posses—more than becoming a rapper or another Oprah or Beyonce or depending on the white man for their success.
When our ancestors told us to know our history, they didn’t mean just know who MLK and Malcolm X was or what black went through in slavery and Jim Crow. When our ancestors told us to know our history, they meant the history we shared with all black people in the globe, the history that we won’t learn in a Eurocentric teaching setting, the history that showed we moved the world before and that we could do it again. If we got our acts together.
I’m seriously so excited right now. I’ve wanted to read this series for so long! Here goes..
I’m reading it now, and it’s really good (though I think I have a secret love for thief themed novels).
This is both wonderful and is a bit sad. Because, yes, “colloquial irregularities” do infact occur; the growth of a language depends on it. However, I believe there should a level of “proper” grammatical speech for the English language to be upheld; basically, maintain formal and informal speech.
