It’s time for a change. Let’s not leave this building and forget what has been said. Put it into your heart, put it in your conscious mind, and let’s do something about it. You have to. We have to. - Michael Jackson’s speech against racism at Sharpton’s National Action Headquaters in Harlem.

It took me a little while, when growing up, to realize they’d/certain parts of the public completely forgot/made themselves forget about his stage accident and the fire; or didn’t want to remember he’d been horribly, horribly burned (head, scalp, parts of his face and neck too, I believe) and came back from that and still performed.

It’s so much easier to call him a ‘freak’.

Lets not forget that everyone and their mother still says he bleached his skin even though the LA coroner confirmed he had vitiligo and a form of skin lupus that suppressed the production of melanin in his skin. Not everyone wants to be white thank you. I also remember in high school ppl talking about how weird it was for a 40 y.o man to wear lipstick and make up. Not only is this sentiment homophobic, but it ignores the fact that MJ probably felt pretty self conscious about the blotches of unpigmented skin on his body. So yeah, he evened out his skin tone with make up. But I guess it’s easy to demonize someone who doesn’t fit into a heteronormative white supremacist patriarchal society

#we did not deserve you MJ

We deserved him. They didn’t.

And yes as a burn victim and someone dealing with vitilago - his gender presentation (fluid or not) aside, he had plenty of reasons to use make-up to present a more comfortable face.

It’s also hit me recently how activist his songs and works were. As a child I was just singing along. But now I realize why my mom and her generation, specifically those who were immigrants to the US; absolutely burned for him.

I also often thought it weird people thought him befriending children as ‘odd’. Children can be cruel, yea. But children will also accept a person as they are when given the choice to do so. All ‘Oh, that’s just how Michael Jackson looks’.

Like how children can accept that some people use wheelchairs and canes - they point out it out and if given a straight answer? They go with it. It’s adults slapping hands going ‘don’t stare, that’s rude’ and not answering the question that creates this element ‘something we don’t talk about’.

oh man i have a LOT of feels about the dehumanization of MJ

Putting Things In Perspective: The photo on the left is Hurricane Katrina moments before it made landfall in Louisiana back in 2005. The photo on the right is Super Typhoon Haiyan, currently making landfall in the Philippines. Basically, what is happening in the Philippines is historic for the world. Super Typhoon Haiyan is one of the strongest storms in world history. You read that correctly, WORLD HISTORY. It is also the strongest storm in the world since 1979. Loss of life is unavoidable in the case of this Super Typhoon. It formed when two separate typhoons joined together. To put things in perspective, a storm bigger than Hurricane Katrina is hitting the Philippines. Unprecedented, indeed. 

Absolutely tragic too. :(
Keep the Philippines in your thoughts, please.

What makes it even worse is that it’s going to be mainly in the Visayas region which just experienced a massive earthquake, and there are still some areas that hadn’t received help because they’re hard to reach. The road to recovery has only barely started and now Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in the Philippines) appears.

If anyone out there wants to help, the Philippine Red Cross is currently open to donations. Even from people outside of the Philippines through this website. (You can pick “Supertyphoon Yolanda” under the campaign field, and since the denomination is in peso, 1 USD = 43 PHP fyi.) 


Reblogging for the donations links.

“James Luna often uses his body as a means to critique the objectification of Native American cultures in Western museum and cultural displays.  He dramatically calls attention to the exhibition of Native American peoples and Native American cultural objects in his Artifact Piece, 1985-87.  For the performance piece Luna donned a loincloth and lay motionless on a bed of sand in a glass museum exhibition case.  Luna remained on exhibit for several days, among the Kumeyaay exhibits at the Museum of Man in San Diego.  Labels surrounding the artist’s body identified his name and commented on the scars on his body, attributing them to “excessive drinking.”  Two other cases in the exhibition contained Luna’s personal documents and ceremonial items from the Luiseño reservation.
Many museum visitors as they approached the “exhibit” were stunned to discover that the encased body was alive and even listening and watching the museum goers.  In this way the voyeuristic gaze of the viewer was returned, redirecting the power relationship.
Through the performance piece Luna also called attention to a tendency in Western museum displays to present Native American cultures as extinct cultural forms.  Viewers who happened upon Luna’s exhibition expecting a museum presentation of native American cultures as “dead,” were shocked by the living, breathing, “undead” presence of the luiseño artist in the display.  Luna in Artifact Piece places his body as the object of display in order to disrupt the modes of representation in museum exhibitions of native others and to claim subjectivity for the silenced voices eclipsed in these displays.“
