The things I find and the thoughts I have.
alright you guys have posted some pretty bad jokes on here but not one comes close to this doozy
so there’s a far-off place that consists of a perfectly triangular lake surrounded by land, with three kingdoms on the three sides of the lake. the first kingdom is rich and powerful, filled with wealthy, prosperous people. the second kingdom is more humble, but has its fair share of wealth and power, too. the third kingdom is struggling and poor, and barely has an army.
the kingdoms eventually go to war over control of the lake, as it’s a valuable resource to have. the first kingdom sends 100 of their finest knights, clad in the best armor and each with their own personal squire. the second kingdom sends 50 of their knights, with fine leather armor and a few dozen squires of their own. the third kingdom sends their one and only knight, an elderly warrior who has long since passed his prime, with his own personal squire.
the night before the big battle, the knights in the first kingdom drink and make merry, partying into the late hours of the night. the knights in the second kingdom aren’t as well off, but have their own supply of grog and also drink late into the night.
in the third camp, the faithful squire gets a rope and slings it over the branch of a tall tree, making a noose, and hangs a pot from it. he fills the pot with stew and has a humble dinner with the old knight.
the next morning, the knights in the first two kingdoms are hung over and unable to fight, while the knight in the third kingdom is old and weary, unable to get up. in place of the knights, the squires from all three kingdoms go and fight. the battle lasts long into the night, but by the time the dust settled, only one squire was left standing - the squire from the third kingdom.
and it just goes to show you that the squire of the high pot and noose is equal to the sum of the squires of the other two sides
hey erinkyan i found a joke for you! :D

politwice said: Being a Jew, you get picked on A LOT more than a black person, and that's a perfect example that complexion doesn't matter (Leo Frank Case) I like what you're doing, raising awareness, and I'm thinking about doing that for the Jews of Tumblr. Thanks

0/10 terrible message please don’t message me again especially not to make literally no sense, say a bunch of baseless things with no connections and then “complexion doesn’t matter” because that’s the biggest bullshit untrue fallacy fable fib fiction lie what was the point of even sending this..? :((((( What do you want from me? what did you want me to answer to this shit
Are they serious right now??
Leo Frank is their reason why Jews are more targeted than Black ppl? Lynching primarily targeted Black folks. Come on now… Everybody knows that except this ignorant.
I’m going to have to ask that non-Jews stop talking about Jews because I’m getting a terrible headache.
Firstly, not all Jews are white, so these blanket statements are false an unhelpful. And secondly, Ashkenazi Jews might have white privilege in some places like the USA, but definitely not everywhere. We’ve been considered “other” for a good 2000 years throughout Europe, and a genocide that wiped out 2/3 of our people in the continent didn’t do anything to alleviate that perception.
OP is an ass, but can we please stop ignoring Jewish history to make these points about intersectionality?
But here in the US, they have primary control, power over and profit of the image of Black folks in the media, across all mediums. So, excuse us for considering our context.
I’m sorry, correct me if I read this comment wrong, but did you say that American Jews have primary control over the media? Are we pulling that old canard from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion?
Lol see what you did there? Pulled the Anti-Semitic card and made no reference to what I actually said. That shit is getting old.
The heirarchy that makes up the music and movie industries aren’t kept secret lol. Who profits and who doesn’t is right there in black and white. Who has ultimate say on the direction and public perception of popular music in this country is not a fucking secret. So, please please inform me of what was so unbelievable about my comment?
Ooh, is the Anti-Semitic card like the race card? I was unaware we get one of those, too. Must have missed that in my last global conquest conspiracy meeting.
What’s unbelievable about your comment above is that you’re perpetuating the rather dangerous hoax that Jews control the media. We might be considered white in the US and earn much of the privilege that white WASPs have (to an extent, because from my experience I can tell you that white non-Jews have never let me forget that I’m not really with them), but to combat the OP’s game of Oppression Olympics by harking back to the same motifs that characterized the victimization and murders of my family, and friends’ families, my people is not a good look.
