Hi all,

Just a reminder on this Indigenous People’s Day that the US military continues to occupy land on Okinawa, a kingdom that was colonized by Japan and subsequently used as a battle site by both Japan and the US until the US eventually started using it as a major base in the Asia-Pacific region.

Beyond horrific incidents such as military exercises gone awry that have led to deaths, US servicemen continue to commit crimes such as theft and sexual violence. There have also been talks of further base construction that would lead to filling in a chunk of the ocean ecosystem Okinawa is known for.

Okinawans are a native group with a unique language and culture (separate from Japan), and have faced waves and waves of colonialism and oppression.

There is much work to be done.

See this is actually a really neat look at how history works.

Who writes the history books?

The survivors.

Who survives?

The victors.

talk about perspective. shit.

Fucking hell.

I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.

And I’m wondering how a continent so big can be so conveniently left out of our world history text books. A class on Africa isn’t a requirement for Anthro majors at my school. YOU CAN HAVE A MAJOR ON THE STUDY OF HUMANS AND COMPLETELY LEAVE OUT THIS WHOLE ASS CONTINENT.

Well goddamn

Well. I learned something today.
