#tbt to the time I visited the Leaning Tower of Pisa (en Marrakech, Morocco)
“When you are a child, and you walk outside, and see that your neighbors house is gone, it puts something in you deep down. All the small children have fear. It’s always with us. Weddings, graduation parties, these are happy events. But something is always missing. We always feel it. Life is very complicated now. There are checkpoints and police harassment. We live like second-class citizens. The Arabs are afraid of the Israelis. The Israelis are afraid of the Arabs. Arab children are afraid of bombs. Israeli children are afraid of rockets. And it’s not like one side can win. The Israelis can never kill all the Palestinians. The Palestinians cannot kill all the Israelis. Only peace can end it. I’d say eighty percent want peace. The rest are crazy religious.”
"What’s your biggest goal in life?"
"To afford to live."

peak whiteness has been achieved.
HA HA HA HA
The “new” word. New to you clueless ass crackers.
you people are literally the worst
PS according to my German speaking hedgeknight who lived in Germany the first 15 years of his life:
Kunstwerk = piece of art
Kunst = art
Werk = creation, work
And according to him, abbreviating it to “twerk” would just never happen at all in German.
So clearly what the fuck is going on.
I’m normally not on the “white people must be stopped” bandwagon but this is pretty ridiculous.
when i showed this to my friends and co-workers (here in Germany) they were like “wait, these people think African dance originated in Germany????”
IS THIS REAL.
As much as white people appropriate other cultures and as much as we need to seriously call that appropriation, this is joke… Taken from a tweet and out of context… I think the reaction here says more about the Internet’s habit to react to anything and everything without evaluating it. A habit that is detrimental to actually effecting change. If you can’t recognize the sarcastic tone in the quote, it takes a 5 second google search to realize he jokingly tweeted this but I guess that’s a lot of effort.
