M.I.A. shitting on ignorant opinions

This isn’t a Nazi Swastika what so ever, as a JEW I can recognize this unlike some people.
Gonna quote straight from wikipedia here.

It is a symbol among the ancient Celts, Indians, and Greeks,[2]as well as in later Buddhism,[4]Jainism,[5]Hinduism,[6][4]and Nazism,[3][4]among other cultures and religions.[4][2]
The word swastika derives from the Sanskrit root ssu(“Good”),asti(“to be”),[4][6]andka(making)[6]The older term gammadion cross derives from its appearance, which is identical to four Greek gamma letters affixed to each other.

What I find interesting is that this is actually a very very good representation of what can happen when white people culturally appropriate something.The Swastika, long before the Nazis came about and started brandishing their own bastardization of it, had a strong religious and cultural significance to a LOT of people.
It didn’t represent anything evil, it didn’t represent a dictatorship that perpetuated one of the most well known genocides taught today.
It only started having this horrible association in the 1920’s when the Nazi party appropriated it as for their logo.
White people, white supremacists, taking something with an already well established past and meaning; and placing their own over it.
Because of these people, swastikas that do not have anything to do with the Nazi party are demonized in most people’s eyes because they don’t know any better, because white people wiped out it’s original meaning in white culture.
People seriously need to learn some history.THIS is the sort of damage that cultural appropriation can do in the long run.

You can always help in more than one way :-) https://unrwausa.org/donate Anything will help. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Save yourself from hellfire by giving even half a date-fruit in charity.”

Goal for my future being able to counsel in war zones.

white: I dont care HOW racist, islamophobic, misogynistic and disgusting Joan Rivers was! Nobody deseves to have people celebrate and wish them death. youre just as terrible as she is

me:

She doesn’t respect anybody else’s humanity and pain so why should we respect hers.

Yep. She made a living shitting on and feeding off the misery and unfortunate circumstances of others, regardless of race. She even told Rihanna SHE NEEDS TO BE BEATEN AGAIN for taking back Chris. While I don’t wish death upon someone like that, it’s hard to really feel sympathy for them in any way.

The face she gives me when she wants to get on the couch

I would build her a mini hot air balloon to get her cute little butt on the couch because that face could make me do anything!
