The good people of Oakland have managed to keep the Israeli liner Piraeus from docking for over 4 days!  Workers with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) in the Bay Area have refused to unload a cargo vessel belonging to Israel’s largest shipping company that has been attempting to reach the Port of Oakland. 

Thousands of San Francisco-area Palestinian solidarity activists have been protesting at the port, obstructing the Israeli ship from docking, and demanding that its cargo not enter the US.

Frida Kahlo’s fucked up for mixing and matching clothing from different indigenous cultures that aren’t hers and for taking her maid’s clothes and trying to play it off as some solidarity or w.e I like do not like her as a person. she was super fucking disconnected and didn’t…

Having big lips is a blessing.

When did Martin Luther King get transformed from a revolutionary civil rights leader that the FBI feared into a teddy bear that only says “I Have A Dream” when you pull the string?

Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.

Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it. 

"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time." 

why are people starting to make comics on what they cant really saybecause they’re scared…but says it anyways in a drawing,they’re still gonna get backfire and messages on these dumbass shit,this is the same as that dumbass shark drawing

Also, note: online activism, while not as “active” as demonstrations and protests (do you have reliable transportation? Can you take time off from work? Are you physically or mentally able to make the trip and participate? Do you have the finances to be able to do this? are there an protests in your area?), there is now a GENERATION of kids being exposed to these discussions and theories about race and religion and sexuality and gender and ableism, that they were not hearing about previously.

We now have young girls openly celebrating each other and representations of themselves in media, when they’d be tearing each other apart just 10 years ago (Anyone remember mid-2000 fandom culture towards women? Remember “not like other girls”? I do. Shit was terrifying). We have PoC and trans people getting their voices heard when talking about their firsthand experiences.

Using the Internet as a medium, a BUNCH of kids and adults have learned new things about sociology that they wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise.

All I am saying is, if it wasn’t for this website, I’d still be just as racist and transphobic and misogynistic and classist as I was when I was 13. I’d be a LOT worse. Don’t tell me that online activism doesn’t do anything. It teaches people and is readily accessible to most people and it encourages discussion. There’s always more that can be done, but don’t mark off online activism as lazy or unimportant.

And to the person who thought it was a good idea to make this comic, have you forgotten that if it wasn’t for social media like Twitter and Tumblr, we wouldn’t have any fucking idea what was going on in Ferguson in the first place?

Shut your fucking pie hole, you piece of shit.
