Origins of the Afro Comb: 6,000 years of Culture, Politics and Identity
The afro comb has long been associated with the 1970s, the accessory of a hairstyle that represented counter culture and civil rights during an important era for both. 
Forty years ago, the afro comb was worn in the hair not only as an adornment, but also as a political emblem and a signature of a collective identity. It was recognised as a way of saying no to oppression. Wearing the comb led to a kind of comradeship amongst those whose hair grows up and out, not down.
Previously, the Afro comb wasn’t very visible. And for this reason it has been assumed that the afro comb was invented in the 1970s. But a new exhibition blows that myth out the water. The afro comb dates back to ancient Egypt. The oldest comb from the collection is 5,500 years old.
The hundreds of combs on display show that over time the style hasn’t changed. The comb, sometimes called a pick, is commonly upright with long teeth. Sometimes a motif decorates the top. In ancient times it often referenced cultural belonging, and there are artifacts showing how people wore the comb in the hair. Time marches on and culture is always in transition. But perhaps not at the speed we assume.

  • japan ≠ korea ≠ china
  • pakistan is not in the middle east
  • most muslims aren’t arabs
  • geishas are not prostitutes
  • mexico is a very small part of latin america
  • there are 54 countries in africa
  • china has 56 different ethnic groups and none of them eat chop suey
  • singapore is not part of china
  • most singaporeans speak english as their first language, please don’t ask, “why is your English so good”
so if black people were the 1st on earth then where did all the other races come from?

They came from Africans.

Africans migrated out of the continent to settle through out the world. The physiological changes that occurred were due to adaptation to the regional climates. That’s why the majority of the population of the planet are Melinated except for the obvious ones….

There’s a deep and rich history behind this, but this is the short answer.

Marissa Alexander denied ‘stand your ground’ hearing 
Judge: ‘New evidence’ isn’t really new
July 21 2014
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A motion for a second “stand your ground” hearing for Marissa Alexander has been denied, in a ruling made Friday by Judge James Daniel.
Alexander’s new defense lawyers argued they had new evidence to present, including a recanting of statements made by the son of Alexander’s estranged husband, the night she fired a shot into the wall next to where he was standing with both sons.
Daniel said the so-called new evidence brought forth by Alexander’s defense lawyers isn’t really new and that the material facts of the case haven’t changed since the first stand your ground hearing.
Daniel said while the stand your ground law has been changed by the Legislature with the “warning shot” amendment — which grants immunity to people with clean criminal records who fire a warning shot or threaten to use deadly force in self-defense — it cannot be applied retroactively.
Mainly, Daniel said while the appeals court granted Alexander, 33, a new trial because of faulty jury instructions, it upheld the denial of the first stand your ground petition.
Specifically to that point, Daniel notes the appeals court said the question whether Alexander is entitled to immunity from prosecution via stand your ground “is no longer open for debate because that issue was definitely resolved … after a full and fair evidentiary hearing in a ruling that has now been affirmed by this court.”
In his motion for a second stand your ground hearing, defense attorney Bruce Zimet said Alexander would be subject to “manifest injustice” should he not have the opportunity to present new evidence. Daniel said all of what he calls new evidence was presented at trial, including the recanting of statements by Rico Gray’s son, who said he was pressured to lie by his father.
Alexander remains on home detention, having posted $200,000 bond. Her trial is scheduled for Dec. 1.

I’m so upset, angry and just completely disgusted about this story!


Matthew Durham, 19, allegedly confessed to sexually assaulting several children at an orphanage in Kenya, police said. (Credit: KFOR)

An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.

The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.

According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.

While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

Durham is being held without bond.

Judgement is Death!!!!!!!

I’m tired of white people.

They better lock him up over there in Kenya

they should have each of his limbs fastened to a horse and then you know have the peckerwood devil torn apart and shit . mek him pussyclaat muma ball out.

As fuck.

*all women

Malcolm X gave zero fucks about white women. They got him arrested and he sure as hell didn’t want them involved in the movement. 

The fact that you, a blatant worshipper of white women and white women only, feel the need to derail a post about women who are undeniably at the bottom of the totem pole to make it all about you and the only women you deem worthy to care about just proves his fucking point.

When a post is about BLACK WOMEN, keep your misogynoir riddled, colonizing hands off of it.

like son… he’s specifically talking about black women.. please go suck a dick.

He’s talking about Black Women and everything he is saying is fact. Stop trying to include yourselves somewhere that was only created because you wouldn’t let us in. Fuck that. This is for us.

Hey
kristenstewartlahv
you’re an awful human being. Malcolm X was talking about BLACK WOMEN. He was talking specifically about BLACK WOMEN because racist ignorant people like you will want someone to protect you when you are wronged, but when our women are wrong, you will idly watch as our women are raped, killed, trivialized, fetishized and ridiculed by the masses. So please, for future reference when it comes to posts like this always remember these four words; STAY IN YOUR LANE.

WHY ARE PEOPLE DOING THIS “ALL WOMEN*” THING SO MUCH NOW?! I JUST BRIEFLY RANTED ABOUT THIS ON TWITTER THE OTHER DAY.

I HATE THIS SHIT.
