DON’T EVEN FUCKING GET ME STARTED JACK CHURCHILL. TOO LATE NOW. THE GUY SIGNED UP FOR A COMMANDO AIR DROP BECAUSE” it sounded fun”. HE CONSIDERED CARRYING A SWORD INTO BATTLE MANDATORY, BUT HE DIDNT USE SOME PRISSY LITTLE PARADE SABRE. HE CARRIED FUCKING CLAYMORE. HE SHEATHED IT NEXT TO HIS BAGPIPES & ENORMOUS TANK SIZED BALLS. HE WAS CAPTURED ONCE. FOUND IT A BIT BORING SO HE LEFT. RECAPTURED, LEFT AGAIN. WALKED ALL THE WAY BACK TO BRITISH LINES TO FIND THE WAR HAD ENDED. HIS REACTION?”oh bugger”
He used a longbow too.
when he was captured the Germans found him playing god save the queen on his bagpipes
There’s too much. Have a link!
He was also a surfer.
We must all aspire to be as “Mad” Jack Churchill
Only guy in WWII to have a confirmed longbow kill. Bow down to this guy.
it’s the last recorded longbow kill in military history

i need to stop seeing this shit come up on my dashboard. stop mimicking “black men” when you invoke predatory sexuality. recognize it and stop doing it. recognize the part youre playing in perpetuating the deadly myth of the black male rapist.
and read this: "Rape, Racism and the Myth of the Black Rapist" from Angela Davis’s Women Race and Class
THANK YOU FOR COMPILING THESE, OP. This fucking shit.
I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS FOR SO FUCKING LONG
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SAYING AND THAT THIS IS ALL HELLA ANTIBLACK
so like isn’t it kind of racist to hear these things and automatically assume someone is imitating a black man or?
i mean you’re basically saying they’re “talking black”, which perpetuates a black stereotype. personally i know white men who talk this way as well.
no, because there is such a thing as “talking Black”.
African American Vernacular English is a legitimate English Dialect that is primarily used by, you guessed it, African Americans.
So if someone is constantly parodying or satirizing predatory behavior by using AAVE, they’re in effect, coding that predatory behavior as a trait inherent in African American/Black culture.
I.E, they’re being racist.
since that is a new thing to me i’ve taken upon myself to google it. AAVE, apparently, shares parts of its grammar and phonology with southern american english. so that would mean both dialects could sound the same right?
coincidentally when i mentioned i know white men who talk like this, one in particular came to mind. he was a man i worked with who’s from the south. so are you saying that all white guys who talk like this are racist because it’s a dialect that came from african american culture?
there are many people who would hear something like the above images and say the person is “talking black.” which is why i said something like that is racist, because it is - it perpetuates the stereotype that all black men talk a certain way. tell me how that’s not racist.
Southern English and AAVE do have similarities but the are clear and key differences. One, AAVE is also regional, aave in the north is different than it is in the south, and West coast.
Similar is not a synonym for “same”. Just because Southern English and AAVE have similarities, doesn’t mean that they’re exchangeable.
The fact that there are so many black people saying that these gifs are racist should clue you in that maybe we’re capable of recognizing our own dialects and when they’re being mocked.
Acknowledging that Black Culture is a thing with our owns social norms, customs and yes, language is not a bad thing.
Mocking all of that is .
