Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xx 

Please signal boost this everybody!

so, I just saw a post talking about how colonists in Egypt shot the noses off of the statues there so they could claim that the Egyptians weren't black, and the post itself was alright until a bunch of people started saying that they hated themselves for not figuring that out immediately. I feel like this shows how far we've come on this website. You either have to understand everything without it being explained to you, or otherwise be labled bigotted trash.

we do all understand that wind erosion is a thing, so a lot of the larger Egyptian statues (e.g. the Sphinx’s nose) is, you know, explained. (Besides, I believe most of the myths about the French or whoever using statues as cannon practice is actually a myth). The noses on smaller statues would have been removed by early Christians or others, NOT to remove the idea that Egyptians were black (because early Christians probably didn’t give half a shit), but to remove the power those gods had over the people.

See, for example, the curator of the Chicago Field Museum's Egyptian Collection, whom I trust a hell of a lot more than 95% of the blogs on this site. This is the common answer that ANYONE with a LICK of studies into Egyptology - I mean official studies, not “I looked stuff up on google,” agree that it was done as a RELIGIOUS motive. I recommend using Google Scholar for this thing as the curator of the Egyptian Collection was the only thing on the first page that had any sort of real research validity — everything else was wordpress or other blogging sites screaming BLACK ERASURE. 

Five seconds on google scholar netted me this article, for example, from the Journal of Late Antiquity, which says the exact same thing I’m saying: 

The Christian destruction of pagan images in Late Antiquity frequently has been regarded as a mindless aspect of religious intolerance. A closer study of the phenomenon, as observed through the extant historical and archaeological sources from Egypt, however, suggests a more complex modus operandi in Christian responses to pagan images that is furthermore revelatory of contemporary conceptions of religious imagery. This study argues that Christian responses are best understood through a particular conception of embodied images, that is, that they possessed qualities of the human body. In spite of Christian authors claiming otherwise, bodies in stone were linked to flesh and blood bodies through the destructive practices that were undertaken to counteract the powers believed to dwell in pagan images. These practices included burning and selective destruction of body parts to negate the bodily qualities of an image. The responses of Christian image-breakers in Egypt are interpreted here with reference to both contemporary methods of punishment (of human bodies) and older traditions of visual practices particularly pertinent to Egyptian culture.

Also, if you know anything about the Egyptian religion, you’d know that destruction of statues, cartouches, and mummies killed off the person in the afterlife (which is why, for example, it’s difficult to find Akhenaten’s name on anything - if you had a Pharaoh that kinda sucked, you just scratched their name off the walls. bravo. he’s permanently dead now. Provided you got everything). So I’d say it’s difficult to say where some damage on some objects came from. So for now, the Christian explanation is a lot easier to use to explain it. 

I’m not saying that the Egyptians weren’t black (I really don’t think we know; I think most scholars consider them more Middle Eastern than black, but there was definitely a time where Nubia (south of Upper Egypt) conquered Egypt, and they were then at least concretely ruled by black Pharaohs.

What I’m going to say this is is a continuation of Americentric thought, where because race is such a hot button issue here we immediately apply it to everything. As far as I know we don’t have established, skin-based racism in the Ancient World. Remember, it was a place where anyone could be made a slave - not just people with dark skin. Until we find further evidence, skin-based racism likely originated later. I’d argue that back when Egyptians were carving these statues, people were looked down on for religion or country of origin more than their skin color.

This is one example of something I would leave speculation of to the professionals: people who actually study Egypt for their living. Not because they got a fancy education (I can literally hear all the “you’re oppressing me for not being able to get a PhD and work in Egypt” bullshit rolling towards me) but because they’re actually studying and dating the artifacts and manuscripts we have and probably can tell you more about the origin of Ramesses than a blog with a clear political agenda.

i dedicate this comic to the teacher who pulled me out of class in middle school to tell me my bra strap was showing and that i needed to get a jacket to cover it up so that i didnt distract the boys

dedicated to all teachers, school administrators, parents, dudes, dudettes, random ass strangers, politicians and dogs who think that is a woman’s duty to ensure that men aren’t ‘distracted’

My headcanon is that he is like this around his crew, the people he loves and trusts.

Accualy thats not even a head cannon in the origonal story line we were going to see him alone with his crew (this is back in TOS I think its part of the comic book line) and he was happy and cheery. Hes a good captain and a better friend. Khan is actually a reflection of Kirk just on the oppisite end of how we see him. Tge only diffrance is their morality and thats just because Khan was forced to who he is and abandoned by his people. His crew is his family. What would you do in his place?
