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.
The word swastika derives from the Sanskrit root ssu(“Good”),asti(“to be”),andka(making)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.
All of this. READ!
"how will i explain gay couples to my children”
if you can explain to your children that an immortal man in a red suit who lives in the north pole travels around the entire world on one night every year on a sleigh carried by magical flying deer i think itll be easy enough to tell them two people are in love
Here is something that immediately caught my attention the first day in my cognitive neuroscience class.
You may have heard of Rene Descartes. He was a famous French philosopher in the early 1600’s. He is known for his theory of the mind and body problem. During his time, hydraulics was the latest technology. Descartes proposed that the brain worked like hydraulics, or water moving through pipes.
We now look back and think “Wow, that’s ridiculous. What a backward way of looking at things.”
Fast forward to the 1800’s, when telephone were the latest hit, and all of a sudden, a new theory arises. The brain works much like wires and switchboards used in telephones.
Now we are at 21st century, and computers are the latest hit, and we propose that the brain works much like a computer. This tendency to compare the brain to the current technology is an interesting phenomenon.
