#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Tyson explained that when he was 14 Cus D’Amato took him from their home in Catskill, N.Y. to Albany to watch on closed circuit as Larry Holmes retained the title in a 1980 Destruction of the faded Muhammad Ali. Tyson even recalled the exact date : Oct. 2.
"I was offended by how bad he beat up Ali" Tyson said. "When we drove home to Catskill about an hour from Albany nobody in the car said a word,we were all so upset. The next morning, Cus was on the phone with Muhammad Ali after taking this shellacking from Holmes. He said to Ali ‘I have this young black kid who is going to be Heavyweight Champion someday and I want you to talk to him.’"
Tyson got on the phone and said he told Ali : " ‘When I grow up, I’ll fight Holmes and I’ll get him back for you.’ I was 14 at the time. Cus had wanted me to beat him so bad."
When Tyson did meet Larry Holmes seven years later, Muhammad Ali was a guest at the fight. Tyson said Ali whispered to him beforehand, "Get him for me." "I moved my head, you got it."  Tyson knocked him down twice then knocked him out in 4th round  laid Larry Holmes flat on his back vicious right hooks.

Rumour: Frank Ocean to release second album next month?: We’re all agreed that Channel Orange is pretty much a modern classic, right? It was voted our Album of 2012 by you lot, which effectively seals its place in history… and it appears the follow-up is very imminent indeed. There’s no official word from Ocean or any of his team, but this tweet from @theycallmeTUNE seems pretty confident the record is set for release next mont and will apparently be named Palabra (Spanish slang with a similar meaning to “word”). We hope it’s true because some Ocean magic would make for a very fine musical summer indeed.
