Salome dances her dance of the seven veils,
The men all eye her like wolves on the hunt, this beautiful girl
finally undressing for them. Finally they can see her
exactly as they want to.
The first veil drops.

In 2007, Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend
released their sex tape against her will.
Kim Kardashian, rather than hide in shame
Used the publicity to promote her own career.

Salome moves like a dream half-remembered.
Salome dances like a siren song. All the men ache
to see the hot sugar of her hip bones.
The second veil drops.

In 2014, Kim Kardashian walks down the aisle
As the whole world watches. If only all of us
were so successful in our revenge.
If only all of us stood in our Louboutin heels
on the backs of the men who betray us,
surveying the world we created for ourselves.

The third veil drops.

Kim Kardashian knows exactly what you think of her.
She presses the cloth tighter against her skin
Her smile is a promise she never intends to keep

We can almost see all of her.
Salome shows us her body
but never her eyes.
The fourth veil is dropping.

The four things most recently tweeted at Kim Kardashian were
@KimKardashian Suck My Dick
@Kim Kardashian Can I Meet Kanye?
@KimKardashian Please Fuck Me
@KimKardashian I Love You. I Love You.

Women are told to keep their legs shut.
Women are told to keep their mouths shut.
Some women are kept silent for so long,
They become experts in the silent theft of power.
The fifth veil has dropped.

Kim Kardashian made $12 million dollars this year
Yesterday, uncountable men in their miserable jobs,
told their miserable friends that Kim was a “dumb whore”
Kim Kardashian will never learn their names.

The sixth veil has dropped.
The seventh veil has dropped.

And Salome sat beside King Herod. And he swore unto her
“Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give to thee
unto the half of my kingdom”
And she smiled, and said
“Bring me the head of John The Baptist.
Punish the man who hurt me”

World Cup 2014: Algeria to donate $9m World Cup prize money to people of Gaza, because ‘they need it more than us’ 
July 3 2014

The Algerian national football team are to donate their entire World Cup prize fund to the embattled people of Gaza, it has been reported.

According to quotes attributed to Algeria’s star striker Islam Slimani, the team will give up all of the estimated $9 million (£5.25 million) they received as valiant losers in the round of 16.
Though Slimani himself plays for Sporting Lisbon and is touted for an even bigger move this summer, the reported donation will be a greater sacrifice for members of the squad based at more modest clubs in Algeria, Tunisia, the lower French leagues and Watford.
Yet according to the Jordanian football writer Waleed Abu Nada, Slimani said: “They need it more than us.”
The Algerian team had already won support from around the world for their gutsy and creative performances throughout the tournament against more favoured nations.
They reached the knockout stages for the first time their history when a second-half Slimani goal saw them go through against Russia – and at Russia’s expense.
And they were actually the better side for large parts of their second round match against giants Germany, only losing after extra time 2-1.
If reports of their donation to Gaza are true, it will see Algeria gain a whole new set of fans beyond football around the world. They were also the only African side to make it through past the group stages – and their apparent willingness to give away the prize money is in stark contrast to the reported behaviour of the Cameroon, Ghana and Nigeria teams.

But they may also face accusations of bringing politics to bear in the world of sport, as Argentina did when they were investigated by Fifa for showing a banner about the Falklands ahead of the tournament.
Algeria have traditionally been strong supporters of the Palestinian cause in the long-running  Middle East dispute with Israel centred on Gaza, and YouTube footage of the team’s open-top homecoming tour through Algiers yesterday showed at least one Palestinian flag draped from the bus by the players.
The reported donation to the people of Gaza comes at a critical time in the conflict, as Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu struggles to control a frenzied reaction to the murder of three Israeli hitch-hikers, which the country blames on Hamas.
Israel has begun sending troop reinforcements to its border with Gaza and begun intensifying air strikes, while more than a dozen Palestinian rockets struck southern Israel early this morning.

What is Black Tumblr?

Technically, we are the collective members of Tumblr who subscribe to the Black/African diaspora. If we are alike in no other way, it is in our shared ‘getting shitted on’ by our respective majorities. 

More specifically, we are the bump in the night for all those internet bigots out there. We are the sigh on the back of the neck as they hit the post button on that one text post. We are the side-eyes in the night. We are glorious justice.

DO NOT come for us, unless we send for you. And if we send for you, you’d better arm up because we are coming with a verbal assault so vicious, your children’s children’s great-grandchildren will know better. We will shade you up and read you down. We are the ones who knock. We are not the hero Tumblr deserves, but we are the hero that Tumblr NEEDS.

Anything else?

15 beautiful photos show a side of Pakistan not usually seen in the media

While the media’s portrayal of Pakistan reduces the country’s 179.2 million people to broad-brush stereotypes, the reality is quite different. Here are images that show a side to Pakistan that goes beyond the headlines.
