5 Excuses for Slavery That Need to STOP | Decoded | MTV News
After Michelle Obama brought up that the white house was built by slaves in her DNC speech, Bill O’Reilly was all too quick to tell her why slavery wasn’t so bad. Why are people giving excuses for slavery in 2016? What even ARE the excuses? And why do we need to stop using them? Franchesca Ramsey breaks down some of the most common excuses to defend slavery and explains what’s really going on here.

4 Black Lives Matter Myths Debunked | Decoded | MTV News
Black Lives Matter is a powerful and influential movement for justice and empathy. Because the movement is challenging systems of racial oppression in the United States, there are a lot of negative reactions and social media misinformation about it. This past week, with the deaths of #AltonSterling, #PhilandoCastile and the subsequent Dallas tragedy, people are feeling even more polarized and confused. Franchesca debunks some of these toxic myths and sheds light on the true goals of Black Lives Matter.

Why Racism Isn't Just a Southern Problem | Decoded | MTV News
While the stereotypical racist in the US might be a southern good ole boy, the reality is that "progressive" Northern and Western states have had a pretty long and terrible history with racism as well. Whether it's a the history of sundown towns that threatened violence against people of color if they were found there after dark, the incredibly racist founding of Oregon, or the long history of redlining to prevent home ownership, it seems like racism certainly wasn't and isn't just a southern phenomenon.

STOP Blaming Affirmative Action for Your College Rejection | Decoded | MTV News
Getting into college is tough, but being rejected from school is even tougher. One of the biggest myths is that affirmative action is taking away spots from those who deserve them more. However, Affirmative Action is not about selecting under-qualified candidates of minority races, but about giving those minorities an equal opportunity to be considered in the first place. And more than just minorities are benefiting. In fact, white women have historically been the greatest beneficiaries of affirmative action! Of course, no one thinks the college admissions process is perfect, but maybe the frustration should be directed towards other aspects of the college admission process… (*cough cough* legacy admissions).

Why is the 1% So White? | Decoded | MTV News
Out of 536 billionaires in the USA, only 3 are black. Why the stark racial divide? Well it's complicated, but it turns out our history of racism has a lot to do with it. From segregated schools that receive less funding in property taxes, to the history of redlining black homeowners, to the long history of slavery, oppression, and segregation, white families were accumulating wealth. That "old money" has provided the capital for the modern-day billionaires, and even average-income white families, to stay significantly ahead of black Americans. So how can we fix the wealth divide in America?

4 Reasons "White Pride" Makes People Uneasy | Decoded | MTV News
Pride in your heritage can be a beautiful thing. It can promote self-confidence, a sense of community, and a broader awareness of the issues a particular group of people may face. But what happens when that pride is used for totally opposite reasons? ‘White pride’ has, over the course of history, been a weapon used against people of color to silence and oppress them. It has associations with some pretty horrendous groups that promote violence and prejudice (such as the KKK). So when people wonder why it’s unacceptable to celebrate white pride, it’s important to consider its background.

Beyoncé Formation Comment or MLK Hate Mail? | Decoded | MTV News

Beyoncé Formation Comment or MLK Hate Mail? | Decoded | MTV News
Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ video sparked quite a reaction. Criticisms have been numerous, and often racially-charged. The general critique has been that Beyonce is instigating violence against police officers, and that she should not have used her platform at the Super Bowl to discuss controversial issues in the black community. However, if you look back to some of the hate-mail that Martin Luther King Jr. received in the 1960s, the comments are eerily similar. It makes you wonder why MLK, now respected as a symbol of peaceful protest and racial unity, was viewed by many at the time as an instigator of violence and segregation. Why were people trying to silence a man speaking out against obvious injustice and why are they doing the same to Beyonce?

We’ve been hearing a lot about “PC Culture” from the conservative media and presidential candidates lately, and the consensus seems to be that all of this political correctness is stifling our right to freedom of speech. But when has speaking out against discrimination and hate ever stripped someone else of their ability to voice their opinion? You still have the freedom to say whatever you want, and the “PC Police” still have the right to tell you how wrong you are.

There's a lot of messed up things with the phrase "You Sound White!" On one side, some people are trying to give you a weird, backhanded compliment that implies that only white people are educated and intelligent. On the other side, people of color often use the phrase to tell you that you don't belong. It's a common saying that's both dumb and hurtful because at the end of the day, your voice is simply your voice.

We all have privilege in some way, and it’s not always an easy thing for people come to terms with. However, pointing out someone’s privilege shouldn’t be a personal attack.

Realizing how we might be treating certain groups of people unfairly is the first step to changing the situation, and becoming true equals!

This past week a group of armed anti-government militiamen took over a national wildlife refuge in Oregon. But when the cops showed up...things got interesting. Because nothing happened! No tanks. No tear gas. No combat gear. And we've yet to hear any major news outlet or tv commentator call these men thugs or terrorists. This is of course in stark contrast to how police and media responded to protests in Ferguson and Baltimore following the deaths of Mike Brown and Freddie Grey. So what's the deal here?

When Christmas comes around you can usually expect to see Santa, his reindeer and helpful elves everywhere. But Dutch Santa doesn’t have elves...he has “Black Pete” or “Zwarte Pete.” Pete first showed up in the 1850 Dutch book “Saint Nicholas and his servant.” The story claims “Black Pete” is black because of the chimney soot, but that doesn’t explain his afro textured hair, or large bright red lips….all familiar racist black caricatures. Today, Black Pete is still a huge tradition in the Netherlands.

On Intersectionality in Feminism and Pizza **KEY**: Burgers = Men Pizza = Women Cheese Pizza = White Women Deluxe Pizza = any combination of gay, bi, trans, POC etc., women I think it's time we talk about feminism a little differently/more inclusively on YouTube. While it's great and delightful to have such broad discussions about sexism and feminism on the internet, it's pretty clear that the majority of the issues deemed worthy of discussion seem to only highlight the plight of White women. We're all hoping that one day women will be treated as equals on a societal level with men, but in the meantime, it would be nice if we could talk about issues maybe a little more pressing like the lack of media coverage when intersectional women go missing, or the reality of the pay gap.

Season 5 Episode 23: Hermanus Zwelihle
"...land gets sold you'll find this place is mostly holiday resorts.....most of the land is taken by estate villages but then we don't get houses. It's been more 12 years" "....the promise that came to the communities was that any development that takes place here the community should get something but its never happened...the community never gets anything that is promised....they build swimming pools but we cannot use running water....we're still living in the Apartheid Era, we are not free yet to get what we're suppose to get as equals in the free democracy of South Africa" South Africa has progressed, however, much still needs to be done, as confirmed by the residents of Zwelihle - a small township situated between the more affluent towns of Hermanus and Sandbaai. We sat down with members of the township as they shared the difficulties they experience. They speak of underdeveloped housing, the lack of job opportunity and Government support as well as the language barriers they face whilst searching for employment in the surrounding areas, even comparing their current struggles to those faced during Apartheid. They feel ignored and discouraged as much of their efforts to improve the situation for themselves ends in stagnation. Leading many to a life of crime as a last resort.

Power, Strength, Dignity Pt 2
“Today I can proudly say, I’m a survivor, I was a victim then but I’m not a victim anymore” The term Rape Culture was first used in the United States during the 1970s in feminist discussions on rape. Defined as a multifaceted societal belief structure, which fosters an absurd normality around sexual violence; it speaks of a society in which blame is assigned to victims, while the actions of perpetrators are disregarded as just another part of life which must be accepted. From our frightening rape statistics, it is evident that this belief is rife in our communities. In the second installment of Power, Strength, Dignity, we hear from another brave survivor who has had more than one experience with sexual violence and refuses to accept blame.
