I hope people are aware that this is not a real image produced by the Black Panthers. It was created by the FBI as part of a coloring book made to look like the Black Panthers created it. They sent out several copies of this coloring book to several supporters (mostly the white ones) of the Black Panther Party hoping to put a damper on the growing number of supporters they amassed at the time.
This was part of the efforts carried out by the U.S. government to actively disrupt, infiltrate, and sometimes totally destroy political movements, which it continues to do to this day. Look up COINTELPRO; it’s all there.
anon please. is it rape apologism to be against telling rapists to kill themselves? like yeah execute them, castrate them, string them up by their genitals, punish them in every way they deserve. but as a sexual assault survivor who struggled with suicide for eight years and has three attempts under my belt, i firmly believe that telling anyone to go kill themselves is wrong. it really, really bothers me. does that make me a rape apologist?
I don’t think that’s rape apologism at all, and I agree with you. I believe that the best solution would be to repair the justice system so that rapists are tried and treated like every other violent criminal out there (currently this is not the case, as rape is the least reported and convicted violent crime). I’ve dealt with depression and mental illness as well and directly telling someone to kill themselves is not okay, no matter what they’ve done or what you think they’ve done. It’s not rape apologism because you are not defending rape or rapists, you simply thing urging anyone to suicide is wrong, and I’d back you up on that.
