Some of these political cartoons about the bloomers movement were legit as hell.
pile-of-trash asked: I don't quite understand the point of this blog. I've been aware that there were some people of color in Medieval Europe for as long as I can remember. Africa was just south of Europe, and of course European countries traded with Asia. I don't think many would be to surprised at the content of this blog. It's sort of just common knowledge.
I can’t believe my followers who were like “I didn’t know about this” have been lying to me this whole time. I didn’t know I was capable of lying to myself so much, since all the research I’ve done since I started this blog last year were actually things I already knew.
How will I ever reconcile myself to my pointless blogging existence? Can you help me, o learned one? If only I’d paid more attention to common knowledge. I knew I was forgetting something.
Everyone unfollow this blog a white dude knew this stuff already
If I had the chance to race Godzilla on four-wheelers you wouldn’t be able to fucking stop me.
I don’t know why Frank insisted on bringing me to this dinner party, I don’t even know what to talk about and everyone’s already having a conversation, it’d be awkward to butt in. A steakhouse? Really? I’m a pescetarian, Frank. We’ve known each other ten years. Nobody’s even bothered to comment on my coat or offered a tummy rub. Your friends are shit, Frank.
my favorite post of 2013
For MedievalPOC, a blogger here on tumblr who receives endless hate and threats for exposing people to alternate historical narratives and for discussing systemic racism, criticizing academic gatekeeping and the disenfranchisement of American indigenous people to name a few.
I’ve learned so much from this person both in terms of facts and critical thinking skills that I wanted to give something back more tangible than a donation (although this person does all this amazing work for zero money [and possibly endangers their own personal safety as well as credibility in their chosen field] in their free time, so if you check out the blog and appreciate what you learn I’d encourage you to make a donation yourself)
Thank you so much for your dedication, passion, and time, MedievalPOC, you’re making a difference and though your progress will be hampered every step of the way by those benefiting from the status quo, you will also be supported and celebrated and I hope that gives you strength.
