M.I.A. shitting on ignorant opinions

This isn’t a Nazi Swastika what so ever, as a JEW I can recognize this unlike some people.
Gonna quote straight from wikipedia here.

It is a symbol among the ancient Celts, Indians, and Greeks,[2]as well as in later Buddhism,[4]Jainism,[5]Hinduism,[6][4]and Nazism,[3][4]among other cultures and religions.[4][2]
The word swastika derives from the Sanskrit root ssu(“Good”),asti(“to be”),[4][6]andka(making)[6]The older term gammadion cross derives from its appearance, which is identical to four Greek gamma letters affixed to each other.

What I find interesting is that this is actually a very very good representation of what can happen when white people culturally appropriate something.The Swastika, long before the Nazis came about and started brandishing their own bastardization of it, had a strong religious and cultural significance to a LOT of people.
It didn’t represent anything evil, it didn’t represent a dictatorship that perpetuated one of the most well known genocides taught today.
It only started having this horrible association in the 1920’s when the Nazi party appropriated it as for their logo.
White people, white supremacists, taking something with an already well established past and meaning; and placing their own over it.
Because of these people, swastikas that do not have anything to do with the Nazi party are demonized in most people’s eyes because they don’t know any better, because white people wiped out it’s original meaning in white culture.
People seriously need to learn some history.THIS is the sort of damage that cultural appropriation can do in the long run.

Kim Hyun Joong’s ex-girlfriend submits photo evidence of abuse

Article

I know I said I won’t post about this woman beater anymore but anyone who still believes he did not abused her needs to wake up. She has tons of evidence and all KHJ has released was “I did date her and hit her and broke her ribs but it was a one time thing”

Wow.

Heard about it, but never got into details. The word, also, is that she was reluctant to press charges because he was helping her through college…but it wouldn’t matter if he were shitting her a golden egg every day and wiping her ass with platinum leaf toilet paper: he admitted to beating her and admitted to breaking her rib from a previous “incident” and needs to brought to justice.

I feel sorry for the people who see all this and still manage to say, “I don’t believe it! It’s impossible! I don’t believe a thing until the company makes an official statement!”

OTL

Anyone who thinks they can get the truth out of an entertainment company must not have been a k-pop fan for very long….
