The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

loverandsynner submitted to medievalpoc:

this was taken at the Museum of London, Docklands - it has a large section about London’s role in slavery, and how slavery contributed to modern racism. 

I think that a lot of museums are finally starting to try and take a more proactive stance on how they present their exhibits and information about them.

For more on this kind of arrangement, I high recommend taking a look at these submissions from xanthy-m on the Swedish Historical Museum:

Some time ago I went to a presentation by a former thesis advisor about female satire written during the long 18th century (It was titled something awesome like “Could Women Be Funny in the Austen Era?” and was more about the social propriety of women being satirists than about whether women were actually funny). During the Q&A I asked if minorities also had trouble representing themselves as satirists and the answer I got was, “Europe didn’t really have minorities back then.”

And that’s when I knew I was asking the wrong person. 

^ And that’s how you erase at least 15,000 people from history.

"The fact is this IF YOU WANT TO COME HERE AND THROW AWAY YOUR IDENTITY (WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT U HAVE TO DO TO OBTAIN THE AMERICAN DREAM) YOU MUST DENOUNCE THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY. IT IS REALLY THAT SIMPLE. BLACK AMERICANS ARE THE ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES BECAUSE WE HAVE FUNDS DUE STAMPED ON OUR FOREHEAD THEY OWE US, THEY CANT PAY US SO THEY SHAME, HUNT, SURVEIL, JAIL, QUARANTINE AND MOCK US."

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
