Anonymous said: Have you just woken up and suddenly decided that you hate your own country? You're British and your ancestors probably helped served the British Empire. The British Empire was the greatest thing to ever happen to the world. We helped to develop countries and bring civilisation to Africa, America and Oceania. I literally wouldn't have been born were it not for the British Empire. I, for one, am proud of our empire and you should be too!

My ancestors were Indian. Helped serve the British Empire? You think they had a choice? 

Are you seriously trying to tell me that British rule did good for India? Go and open a history book that isn’t whitewashed beyond all recognition. Go and speak to the descendants of the peoples that were colonised. Ask them about the ‘good’ the British Empire did for their countries. Ask about the Koh-i-Noor diamond.

I may be British, but I’m of Indian heritage, and I’m ashamed of what one part of my identity did to the other. It hurts me to even think about it. But it’s the reality. 

Are you so lacking in compassion, so wrapped up in Britain’s greatness that you’ve managed to read a list of crimes no country should ever have had the power to commit (heavy trigger warnings on this for violence, murder, rape), and still come out of that supporting the regime that literally killed for its own profit and glory? 

You think that we were in any position to ‘civilise’ anyone? You think invaders have that right? 

When you want to step out of your snowy white fantasy land and join the real world, then we’ll talk.

The world is letting fascist Israel continue its genocide of Palestinians so they’re not even hiding it any more. There’s no need to because instead of facing consequences for it they are rewarded with extra military aid from the US.

Here’s a pdf version of the article which has since been taken down.

This is absolutely disgusting. I.. i have no words.

it’s not cute, it’s not right

do not put your hands on him

find a better way to deal with your anger and frustration

keep your hands…

Iranian photographer Hossein Fatemi, offers a glimpse of an entirely different side to Iran than the image usually broadcasted by domestic and foreign media. In his photo series An Iranian Journey, many of the photographs reveal an Iran that most people never see, presenting an eye-opening look at the amazing diversity and contrasts that exist in the country.
