WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE YOUR HAIR Malcom X speach, 5 MAY, 1962
”Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? Who taught you to hate the color of your skin, to such extent that you bleach to get like the white man? Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose, and the shape of your lips? Who taught you to hate yourself, from the top of your head to the soles of your feet? Who taught you to hate your own kind—who taught you to hate the race that you belong to, so much so that you don’t wanna be around each other….?” ~Malcom X 1962
Earlier today, several thousands of young Hongkongers like me were sitting very peacefully at the government house, asking the government for a real democracy and genuine election. However, with no genuine reply from the government, it sent out police with guns, armors and shields to evacuate our peaceful demonstration. Police sprayed us with harmful pepper spray and even threw numbers for tear gas bombs towards innocent people. Tears and screaming was everywhere, and people keep running to search for a shelter.
We are just innocent people like you. We are just trying to protect the people in government house. We don’t want to see any tragedy performing on once safest city on the planet, like those happened in Syria, Ukraine and China. Maybe all of you are born in democracy States, you are born with democratic election, you have free election right, but we don’t.
We need genuine democracy. We need a popvote on the constitution reform only, nothing more.
Please help us to spread this video and all news of the event over the world. Tell your friends, your family, your mates and all people you contact with, to let the world know what is happening in Hongkong. Thank you!
Viola Davis is a freaking tour de force. As she slowly peels back her wig, her eyelashes and wipes away her makeup, you can just see Annalise come undone. She doesn’t say a word, but you can feel the pain radiating off her. It gave me the chills. (x)
