New York City: Night

At night 

the city stars 

shine like supernovas  

in a vast 

urban universe.

And in the hours 

just before midnight 

during muffled increments 

of time 

when the city’s heart 

palpitates in time 

to the distant lullaby 

of the day’s remains 

dreams sleepwalk 

their way

through the 

alleys and streets.

New York City doesn’t have many alleys.This is an alley in lower Manhattan. This was taken on a quiet night with my Sony A99. 

I love the moments that occur when night falls and dreams roam the streets.

I lost respect when I learned of Gandhi’s body hatred and even more that he refused to have sex with his wife for the last thirty-eight years of their marriage (in fact he felt that people should have sex only three or four times in their lives) I lost even more [respect] when I found out that in order to test his commitment to celibacy, he had beautiful young women lie next to him naked through the night: evidently his wife - whom he described as looking like a ‘meek cow’ - was no longer desirable enough [to] be a solid test

On Pacifism

Yeah, Gandhi was an unbelievably selfish individual. My biggest reason for losing respect for him, though, was that he criticized the Jews for defending themselves against the Holocaust — he insisted that they should have committed public mass suicide in order to “shame” the Germans instead of fighting back.

(via freedominwickedness)

…. In order to shame the Germans?  WTF?  The Germans wouldn’t’ve been shamed - they’d’ve been thrilled to get their way so easily!

(via christinathena)

Gandhi’s exact words were: “But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions.” He also wrote an open letter to the British people in 1940 telling them to surrender to the Axis even if it meant accepting genocide:

“I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions. Let them take possession of your beautiful island, with your many beautiful buildings. You will give all these but neither your souls, nor your minds. If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourself, man, woman and child, to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them.”

he was also anti-black (lost all respect for him after reading how he treated sub-saharan africans).

read this. everyone needs to know gandhi’s “true colors”.

Ghandi was a pedophile, to boot.

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MY ENTIRE LIFE THANK YOU

I CANNOT FUCKING STAND THE WAY HE IS PORTRAYED 

HE WAS AN ABUSER WHO HIT HIS WIFE AND HIS DAUGHTERS ALSO

(via oliveseraphim)

i’ve reblogged this before but this version has even better commentary and sources so

(via fromonesurvivortoanother)

also he believed women shouldn’t fight off their rapists

(via teamfreewillxgraham)

His wife died from a treatable illness because he “didn’t believe in modern medicine”.

(via pancakesandplaid)

Yes and let’s not forget what he did to Bhagat Singh also.

They do NOT teach you this in school

(via problackgirl)

its about time folks find out who the real gandhi is. He considered Blacks slave, inferior and dirty. He actually wanted the whites in south africa to continue apartheid as he compared Blacks to animals.

(via postracialcomments)

I knew a fair amount of this due to being pakistani (we are kind of…not huge gandhi fans) but some of this shocked even me.

#FUCKGANDHI (via whitegirlsaintshit)

Wow…. This is very eye-opening. So disappointing, smdh.

(via poeticallyhighdreams)

yeah the reason they do not teach you this in school is DELIBERATE. gandhi was ultimately an ally of the british and basically all oppressors everywhere, and an oppressor himself. he was born into high caste and spent his entire life benefitting off the backs of his own people. and fucking postcolonial india is still obsessed with him, GREATLY because of the mark the british left on academic curriculum and the overall culture.

they taught you to love gandhi because they wanted you to love your oppressor.
