Kim Kardashian is idolized for her features while Sarah Baartman was fetishized and exhibited as a freak show attractions. She lived on dehumanizing conditions while forced to work in the European Circus and the Parisian zoo, while white spectators started at her large bottom and elonged labia (due to a genetic trait called steatopygia). The comparison is completely ignorant (The NY times article is trying to talk about a play depicting Sarah Baartman's life)

Trolls just keep it moving. You will be blocked the second I see your comment. I'm sick to death of this family being demonized and attacked simply because people hate the fact their presence existed in the White House. #BarackObama #MichelleObama #POTUS #FLOTUS #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #MaliaObama #SashaObama #forevermypresident #forevermyfirstlady #FOREVER44 #FLOTUS44 #farewellobama #Obamafoundation #Obama #obamafarewell #wemissyouobama #colors#world #obamafamily_forever_44#obamaismypresident#fbf

'The victory of the 1967 referendum was not a change of white attitudes. The real victory was the spirit and optimism which affected blacks all over Australia. We had won something...we were visible, hopeful, and vocal.' - Oodgeroo Noonuccal

On the 27th of May in 1967, more than 90 per cent of Australians voted to amend the way Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were referred to in the Constitution. This was the biggest 'yes' vote in the history of Australian referenda.

The 1967 Referendum led to the inclusion of Indigenous people in the census and gave the Federal Government the power to make laws for Indigenous people.

This was only 50 years ago, and the fight for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights is far from over. As non-indigenous people, we need to listen to their stories and experiences (link in bio). Photo: J. Hassen and his daughter protesting in front of Parliament House, with a sign that reads 'Give us equal rights throughout Australia'.

Maria Firmina dos Reis (October 11, 1825 – November 11, 1917) was a Brazilian abolitionist and author. Her novel Úrsula (1859) was a depiction of life for Afro-Brazilians under slavery. Firmina was born in SΓ£o LuΓ­s, capital of MaranhΓ£o, in 1825. A mulata, illegitimate and poor, she fought valiantly against the prejudices she was subject to, eventually proving her value in the intellectual field. She was a cousin of the writer and educator Sotero dos Reis, from whom she received support. She participated in a public competition for elementary school teacher in the city of GuimarΓ£es, during which she denounced the injustices that have occurred in the field of education which was extremely hard to access in the nineteenth century. Her most well known novel was Úrsula, published in 1859. From an abolitionist theme, the work portrays the horrors of slavery and develops the psychological mindset of black characters, of great importance in the plot, despite the main story being the impossible love between two white characters. In another novel, Gupeva, from 1870, the author addresses the indianismo: an Indian chief falls in love with a girl coming from Europe, not knowing that she is his half-sister. They are quite novela-like stories, with a backdrop that portrays the society in a fierce way. Firmina was also short story writer, a poet, a riddle maker and music composer. She wrote critical articles for local papers, composed Hino Γ  Libertação dos Escravos (Hymn to the Liberation of Slaves) and A Escrava (the slave), adhering to anti-slavery and republican ideals. The adoptive mother of ten children, she was single her entire life, died poor, blind and forgotten in her home in GuimarΓ£es in 1917. Fortunately, some authors and researchers of today redeemed her importance, commenting on her life and work. #afrobrasilera #literaturanegra #literaturapreta #blackhistory #afrolatina #afrodescidiente #preta
