White People: “You blacks need to get over what we did to you. It was so long ago and it wasn’t even that bad. So what if us honest hard working christians could attend a lynching after church, where’s the issue in that?”
this shit was happening like 40 fucking years ago
hell this shit STILL HAPPENS
The fact that he has on a u.s. army sweatshirt is just …..
these two guys (including Army sweatshirt guy) were helping the one guy escape a white mob
there’s another photo of them helping him walk away to safety
who knows what really happened, history is all fucked up.
history is incredibly fucked up and the 1943 race riots in Detroit were incredibly fucked up
but the second photo is much more clear about the interactions between these three. Source on the 2nd photo was an issue of Life magazine from the time.
Well done Tumblr. You posted a picture without context and made two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.
THIS IS AN EXACT REPRESENTATION OF MEDIA MAKING YOU SEE WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO SEE
Some Tumblr SJWs are so desperate they will literally lie to make their point.
Way to go Tumblr, good one.
we get it tumblr isn’t perfect, and yes these guys did a good thing. but people need to stop using pedantry to undercut the fact that this world is full of ignorant fucked up people who actively make others lives completely unsafe for no goddamn reason. people still believe we live in a post-racism society, correct people without being an asshole.
There was no need to correct anybody. white people’s feelings got hurt because I told the truth, and in their rush to ‘correct’ me they completely missed my point. Ironically, all you people are doing is defending white supremacy.
My post was pretty fucking simple, and I did not once accuse either of the great white samaritans of harming that man. You fucking white people disgust me. I got far too many messages behind that bullshit, all because some people can’t read.
