we’re such assholes in the US omg
if there was a POC country on the other side the white europeans would be pulling the same shit. or have we been ignoring the rise of the right and the general racist climate of europe. who teh hell you think the white americans descended from?
I present the border between Spain and Morocco, aka Europe and Africa…
You know, I never reblog stuff because i’m a lazy piece of shit, but i think this is worth rebloging and saying a couple of things, not to make spain look better, but so you guys understand the situation:
Spain has, since 1497 a little town called Melilla (where i’m from btw) 12,3 km2 or 4.7 square miles, and a density of 6803 habitants per km2, which is a fucking lot let me tell you. There’s also Ceuta, which is quite similar only smaller, and since I believe the images of the border are from Melilla, I’m going to talk about Melilla. But first, I’m going o talk about the European Union because I guess none of you understand what it means. To put it simple: some countries in europe have an agreement in which if you are for example spanish (as is my case) which a spanish passeport and identity document, i can freely go to any of the european countries in this agreement and work there and live there. Those agreements, don’t include Morocco. That doesn’t mean that Moroccan people don’t come and go every day to Melilla, it just means there is a control against irregular inmigrants, os do many countries.
It’s not because they are POC, it’s because you just can’t let everyone who want go freely and happily to a minuscule city in hopes to arrive to spain and a better life. The situation is similar in the peninsula, where they arrive in boats with minimal conditions. They are given care and there taken back to their country of origin. The situation is similar in Italy.
I don’t know if this is understandable (not the situation, my writing) but I hope you at least understand the situation a little bit better before making assumptions and read a little bit about the topic. And if you have any questions or don’t understand anything I just said, please message me and I’ll try to be clearer.
PS: if anyone know how to add pictures of the location of Ceuta and Melilla it would help a lot.
First of all, I’m very flattered you decided to come check my blog, really, it means the word because i don’t post a lot. I don’t post a lot because I’m very lazy and I just “heart” thing and put them on a reading list because I’m too much of a perfectionist and having a blog is a pain in the butt. So yeah, thank you for coming. I’m still on tumblr all the time so if you wan’t to ask me anything my ask box is open.
Really, thank you for checking out my blog. If I could I’d give you a hug.

”Now on a personal level, I was so proud of this because, and I didn’t know this. The gentleman who played the other Captain Jack actually said to me afterwards, he said ”you know”, because he was in tears he was crying, and I said are you okay? Have i done something? Did I do a James Marsters? Did I slip you a little tongue? And he went ‘no no’ and he started laughing, and he said ”im actually, im overwhelmed because, i want you to know, what you’re doing as a show, as a character is absolutely wonderful for all of us out here you know watching you, because my brother committed suicide a few years back, because he couldn’t deal with it, and society wouldn’t allow who he was, and he took his own life, and for me to stand here and play a character that represents who my brother was, is an honor for me, but also it means my brothers life wasn’t lived in any sort of vain, or his death wasn’t anything meaningless” and I had no clue, so for me as the actor for that episode, that was one of the most touching moments, but also it made me realize that in every episode from now on, that we’re not only telling stories we’re actually impacting peoples lives with the messages that we can put across. As we do, were making a difference. And that is why the episode ‘Captain Jack Harkness’, is probably one of the most important episodes to me.” - John Barrowman
