Never let them define our culture with their propaganda.

BUT EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE NOT AND WERE NOT BLACK.You’re thinking of Nubians.

Have you been to Egypt? Have you seen the native Egyptians. Not the Arab settlers I’m taking indigenous Egyptians. Plus wtf are you talking about saying the Ancient Egyptians weren’t black? Like that’s just wilful ignorance. Even if they weren’t black as you claim the certainly weren’t even close to white so explain to me why white Europeans are playing these characters? - Deejah

Regardless of what Egyptians were (which is Black / Brown), this story is about their gods. Set and Horus’ story in particular revolves around the fact that Set was fair-skinned (not White) and had reddish hair which was looked down upon in their culture, while Horus and his brothers were darker-skinned and thus more accepted in their society. The entire story that is being portrayed, unless it strays absolutely completely from any real mythology, is completely pointless if that skin difference is not there because that is why Set was so hated, and why he became the god of destruction, war, and foreigners. His issues with Horus were based primarily on the fact that (a) Horus abused him because he looked different, and (b) because Horus encouraged the other gods to belittle and ridicule him. 
All of the hieroglyphs and painted depictions of these gods clearly show their skin. Horus is clearly brown-skinned, Set is light but not ‘White’ per se. It’s not that hard to figure these things out. Egypt is still a place, it’s still in Africa, it’s always been in Africa, it’s inhabitants have always been African, period. Y’all just want to take credit for something you didn’t do. 
In fact, the idea that Egyptians were White came from the scientific racism of the 18th and 19th centuries. However, it’s already been disproven that they were White. There is literally no support for that claim outside of the “assumption” that they had “White” features. Conveniently, colonists blew the noses off of their statues to destroy the evidence of their wider noses. They still referred to themselves as the Black people (kmt / kemet) of the Black land, and there have been melanin tests and the like which have proven that they were darker than what they are commonly depicted as today.

youarenotyou:

like seriously if you think it’s okay to make fun of people, or shame them, because they aren’t “healthy” you are absolutely disgusting

and if you think people aren’t allowed to feel good about themselves unless they’re healthy, you are a really awful person

urhotmess asked: How do you make the flowers for the flower crown? like specifically what material is it? Its super cool and I want to make one I just don't know what I need.

Hmm, I just reblogged it from another site, but I think I can help you in terms of what to buy and how to do it. If you click the link, it’ll take you to the complete photo post that shows you what you need. In any event, here’s the list:

  • Nail polish
  • Floral wire, a thin bendable wire is ideal. 26 Gauge is fine. imageimage
  • Floral Tape            image
  • Wire cutters/scissors
  • a pencil or cylindrical object to wrap the petals around
  • Ribbon (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. First, you’re gonna need to make the crown. You can do this by using the wire you already have or you can use an old headband or anything that you like that resembles a headpiece. Thicker wire is also fine for this step.image       As you can see, OP twisted two pieces of wire together and left loops at the end (to attach the ribbon). Then they covered it in brown floral tape.
  2. The second step is to make the flowers. Using your pencil/cylindrical object, twist the wire around it to create a ‘petal’. Repeat this until you have at least a couple of petals. 3-6 is usually fine, it’s really your call. image
  3. SLIGHTLY bend the petals back to create a natural looking petal.image
  4. After you are satisfied with the shape of your petals, cut out your flower, leaving some wire left to attach it to your crown. 
  5.  Repeat the first few steps and make the rest of your flowers.
  6. Take one of your flowers and CAREFULLY apply nail polish to it, one petal at a time. Think of it like making bubbles. It may be easier to pour the nail polish in a flat plate and dip it, or dip the entire flower into the polish.imageRepeat this for all your remaining flowers.
  7. Twist the two ends of your flowers together to form a ‘stem’.image
  8. Wrap the stems with floral tape, preferably with the same color you used in the base of the crown.imageRepeat this for all your remaining flowers.
  9. The third step will be attaching the flowers to your crown. You can do this a few ways. One way is to wrap the stems around the crown. Another way is to just wrap the stems with floral tape as you go along, like the OP did.imageDo this until all your flowers have been attached to your crown.
  10. At this point, you can tie the ribbons to the loops like OP did, or decorate it any other way you like. :)

Enjoy your new floral crown!

TIPS

  • You can purchase most of the items in Walmart, Michael’s or any craft or flower store. You can also order it online. :)
  • REMEMBER, this tutorial is just a guide. If you don’t want to use brown floral tape or if you prefer using the green floral wire, don’t be afraid to change it up. You can use any color or material your heart desires.

Sorry for replying late. I hope this helps you with making your own crown. :)

holy shit this nail polish thing is so clever! 8O

This would be an amazing way to use up old nail polish…

The US version of Harry Potter is surprisingly short. 

I’ve been laughing at this for like half an hour cause when Harry fires the gun it looks like he’s saying “BAM!”

Bam! Omg I’m dying

Someone reblogged this from me after I forgot about it and then I laughed for ten minutes and actually LEFT MY BED TO SHOW MY FAMILY
