I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.

trying to work up the energy to clear out my closet for a garage sale this friday. here’s a rare personal post!

i’m going to be going on a three week roadtrip across the states with cam and a friend in october!! this is your early warning that my blog will be spammed with travel images if i have internet and time to dump images from my camera. the rough idea right now is to go up through the UP (starting in michigan the second week of october), drop down through wisconsin, and head out west that way, possibly passing through montana and idaho somehow. we don’t have a concrete plan and the three of us will mainly just be looking for potential places to live come the winter since we are all on the “no more michigan” boat. i am several exclamation points excited about it!!!!
this would be the perfect time to send me music suggestions since we will be in the car for A Very Long Time. i’m looking at a couple of the people that i know IRL (hi dave!) in particular for this. help ya girl out!!
once i get back from the road trip i will actually be visiting my friends madi and lauren in austin, texas for twelve days - so again there will be lots of travel photos. i don’t think i have any texas followers (aside from madi) but if you happen to be in the area and want to meet up for a photoshoot in november, hit up the ask box!

that’s all! back to cat and hair dye reblogs~

@OwningMyTruth: White people are more worried about “freedom of the press” than the assault on black lives and bodies

This is so disgusting. It’s racial profiling and all it does is add problems.

And this is it. This shows how so many white people think and, brilliantly, also reveals that this is what they think of as “racial profiling” since they have never (and will never) experience what actual racial profiling is like. Is this the extent of the injustice that you feel right now? That black people are calling out structural violence against our bodies and lives by white and non-black people and speaking truth to power against white supremacist power structures? A community is being occupied and militarized to assault and silence black people after Darren Wilson murdered a member of their community, but you’re the victim? Ferguson police are trying to cover this up and justify the death of yet another black person (because remember, this happens every 28 hours to black people and isn’t “random”), but it’s about you, right? Not the fact that mainstream media outlets again and again are focusing their reports on the white journalists and caring nothing about the dozens of black people who had been assaulted and arrested during the protests in Ferguson. How about that the headline of the lead trending story on Politico for the last 3 days was “Reporters arrested in Ferguson," no mention of black life or Mike Brown, no mention of the antiblackness and surveillance which are central here and have always been a part of black life, no mention of the fact that if this were a white neighborhood this militarization, silencing and brutality would be unimaginable, while it’s simply par for course in a long history of this country’s assault against black people and black life.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- white people have a huge victim complex. Black people are being assaulted, hurt and killed as we speak in a militarized, occupied town simply for demanding accountability from the police for the murder of a child in their community, and all you can say is that you are being “racially profiled” or wax obtusely about “not all white people”? How selfish and narcissistic can you be? How ahistorical is your perspective? You have enough time to write bullshit like this on tumblr, but not enough to have some damn sense and use Google and see how many  articles are out there (by and large by white people) bemoaning the assault on journalists in Ferguson and giving short shrift to the black lives which were brutalized long before, during and after them? The number of comments on this post and others that I’ve gotten saying that they as white people are getting “racially profiled” right now is absurd, even with the violence against black life in Ferguson so prominently on display, and it goes to show you that for all the time you people waste saying “not all white people,” at the end of the day the vast majority of you play true to script and are the racists you try to separate yourselves from and demonize.
