This is a recent occurrence.,Hollie F. Jackson had a litter of puppies and decided to use them as target practice. She let them bleed out in her front yard.
She calls it ‘taking care of business’ but the rest of us call it murder.
Please please get this attention. She needs to be put in prison.

This is seriously so important and I wish people would care about this as much as I do.
If this doesn’t get attention, nothing is going to happen.
She murdered helpless, starving puppies for fun and posted it on fb like it was something to be proud of.

Fuck that.

Where does this girl live, I’ll show her what it means to be a moving target

#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

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.

    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Cleopatra was black, she was as black as Cicely Tyson. -Paul Mooney

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends. 

Cleopatra was Greek and the Egyptians were Arabic I’m 98% sure neither of those is black and I’m about 100% sure that white people didn’t just knock the nose of the sphinx for fun

This is so wrong.
The reason why it’s so wrong is because the destruction of such noses was less likely racially motivated and natural and more about disfigurement of “false idols” by the early Christians and Muslims.

Cleopatra also had both Greek, Egyptian, and maybe a hint of black African ancestry, but a lot of evidence points more so that she has a lot more Greek and brown Arab blood in her more so than black. So for all we know she isn’t completely black, she could be mixed race.

So before you jump on the “I’m so embarrassed” bandwagon, research a little more about the disfigurement of those statues. Some really disintegrated naturally, buy a lot of them were politically/religiously motivated as a means to show that these self-proclaimed gods are nothing but stone etc.

Also, I don’t see why you lot would be fanning over Cleopatra when her ancestry is practically known as being imperialists from the way it came to the succession of the throne.
