Help Attract Bees with Plants!
Many plants can’t create a seed, nut, berry, or fruit without the help of bees. Bee populations have been mysteriously declining, but we do have the power to revive bee colonies ourselves. Check out these 8 beekeeper challenges!

Date a man who cooks. Date a man who dances. Date a man who appreciates fine art. Date man who tells jokes. Date a man who throws dinner parties. Date a man who kills the rude. Date a man who can drive a knife thru a cutting board. Date a man who body slams into doors wielding knives and covered in blood. Date Hannibal Lecter.

If I ever have children I will be terrified that they will ever feel as if they can’t be their true selves with me. Like it breaks my heart to think that my future son or daughter would have anxiety over coming out as gay.
If you ever read this future son or daughter or whatever you identify as; be you. Be you forever. And I will have your back until the day I die.

The Middle Passage journey from West Africa to the Americas took 4 to 6 months.

Try walking around without wiping your butt for a day or a week. Yep now try laying down in shit for 4-6 weeks, most of it isnt your own. Then add some blood and some mucus. Then grab some chains. Slavery was that bad. dont u ever fucking tell me it wasnt! (via howtobenoladarling)

Not to mention every now and then you were raped by those that were working the ships.  Male and female were raped.

(via theafrosistuh)

24 hrs laying in extremely tight positions with hundreds of people that are suffering from all kinds of diseases due to malnutrition. Weather wasnt always the way the ship owners planned and voyages took longer than usually, the longest I was told by a professor was a whole year.

Most people have no idea what happened to our ancestors, and that’s due to the fact that the powers that be want to act like it never happened.

Reblogging some real shit from my Liked posts. Because fuck you.

(via bludclotartattack)

And let’s add on the fact that ships have to make port and re-supply and between Africa and America lay the Caribbean and South America, which still took a great deal more to travel to. So families were separated not only by death and torment, but by members being sold off on a different continent than where they might have been bound.

Not to mention ships get blown off course, and the slave next to you might have died and you have to sleep next to a corpse for who knows how long before the crew finally decides to handle it and toss it overboard like so much offal.

Sharks still follow the course of the slave trade ships till this day due to the amount of offal and human bodies that were tossed overboard in the ship’s wake.

(via thegoddamazon)

(Damn is that last thing about sharks true?!)

Yes. They threw so many bodies overboard it changed the ecological feeding patterns of sharks. They follow the slave ships from dock to port. They were even used as an act of terrorism to force Africans on to ships and encourage them not to commit suicide. Slave ships were often packed for collateral damage. It was estimated that many would not make the journey and all those bodies thrown overboard were insured. That’s how insurance companies got their start… It’s also how many families built their family fortune.


This was a business.
