Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

The objective is not to hate white people. the objective is to love ourselves so much that white people become irrelevant.

I still laugh about the amount of people this post has angered

So you hate America?

oh honey

But you can only be angered by this if you’re an idiot because that’s the correct answer

idk, i just feel like when black people (specifically blacks from the americas, the carribean, dominican republic, puerto rico etc) deny that they’re african, they are rejecting the struggle our people went through and accepting who the enemy told us we are.

The community’s concern with the election and appointment of Black political figures helps it to maintain false hopes that their attainment of office will significantly resolve its problems. The activities of Black politicians, given the current inadequacy of social organization and economic resources, harmfully distract the Black community’s attention from recognizing and eradicating the true causes of its problems and the remediation of its powerlessness.

One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant.
Women are “catty” and “don’t get along.” But the streets are filled with the blood of young men murdered bcuz someone felt “disrespected”
We’ve been taught a woman’s body will cause men to sin. We’re told that if a woman shows too much of her body men will do stupid things. Let’s be clear: A woman’s body is not dangerous to you. Her body will not cause you harm. It will not make you do stupid things. If you do stupid things, it is because you chose to do stupid things.

Oh, but Never to worry…they’re all just “protecting” our “freedom”.

Colorism and racism is when it's only a "preference" when you find white women or light-skinned woc automatically prettier than a black/dark-skinned woman, but call someone a "liar" for saying they find Grace Jones more beautiful than Madonna or Justine Skye prettier than Jhene Aiko.

I agree.Not saying jhene, madonna(at her peak) or any light skinned woman aren’t beautiful in their own right but they’re pretty and praised by default in society. But yeah it’s nothing but internalized racism of you can’t let acknowledge the beauty in all shades

I don’t…
