—Marie Antoinette (2006)
Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

When Black Men Ruled the World: 8 Things The Moors Brought to Europe
The 16th century English playwright William Shakespeare used the word Moor as a synonym for African. His contemporary Christopher Marlowe also used African and Moor interchangeably.
Abu l-Hasan Ali Ibn Nafi – who was also known as Ziryab (black singing bird in Arabic) and Pájaro Negro (blackbird) in Spanish- was a polymath, with knowledge in astronomy, geography, meteorology, botanics, cosmetics, culinary art and fashion. He is known for starting a vogue by changing clothes according to the weather and season. He also suggested different clothing for mornings, afternoons and evenings.
The Moors’ scientific curiosity extended to flight when polymath Ibn Firnas made the first scientific attempt to fly in a controlled manner, in 875 A.D. His attempt evidently worked, although the landing was less successful.

His tattoo translates to ‘faggot’. WHY
Because i am one.
“Let me give you some advice, bastard: Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armour, and it can never be used to hurt you.”
-George R.R Martin.
But why is it in Arabic?
Yes, why is it in Arabic? Also it doesn’t mean faggot.
ah yes, yet another demonstration of the subtle racism of the ~gay community~ masked by rhetoric of “pride” and “liberation”
*using another language doesn’t make me racist. I chose Arabic in support of all the men who are called this word as it is a hateful, demeaning word used in the extremely homophobic gulf countries. I thought i had it bad being called a faggot from a car in Sydney, they have it a million times worse. I have received many emails from young gay arabic men who are currently living in the gulf countries, thanking me for being a voice that they don’t have. I could have used an Indian or African language, but i have some arabic friends and settled with this word. I also could have settled for the tattoo in English, to stop all these ignorant racism comments, but I’m glad i didn’t because having the tatt in Arabic has opened this tattoo up to so many more discussions about homophobia and the extreme hardships that millions of us face daily.
homonationalism + white saviour complex = ^^^
gay men in “the extremely homophobic gulf countries” do not need you, a white western man, to speak for them.
I don’t have the patience for this. here.
They ARE extremely homophobic, and why not? This is for every faggot in the world who’s ever been called one in a negative way. and “lol” at white saviour complex.
Let me guess, all the people ranting about how racist gay men are straight women
Hes’s not speaking for anyone you silly snatches. He got a fucking tattoo. Get the fuck over yourselves.
it got worse
omg if it’s not “faggot” then i really hope it’s like “dustpan” or something
either way, stop getting tattoos in languages that have nothing to do with you, white people

White people who are into body mod constantly pull this shit. People staring at your piercings and tattoos is not the same as dealing with institutionalized oppression, you soggy waffles.
shockingly, kids are sick and tired of paying hundreds of dollars for overpriced stacks of paper!!!!!! who wouldve thought!!!!!!
Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]
This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year.
it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.
I wanna set Goodell on fire
Going to reblog this again because they really called unsportsmanlike conduct.
Went from comedic to real as fuck in like 2 seconds
