The Einstein You Didn't Know...

blackinasia: actofrebellion82: blackinasia: “Einstein, when he arrived in America, was shocked at how Black Americans were treated. “There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States,” he said. “That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. And, I do not intend to be quiet about it.” And, he wasn’t. Although he had a fear of speaking in public, he made all the effort he could to spread the word of equality, denouncing racism and segregation and becoming a huge proponent of civil rights even before the term became fashionable. Einstein was a member of several civil rights groups (including the Princeton chapter of the NAACP).Happy Birthday Albert Einstein!” Source: Craig Lowery II for Last Words. I wonder why I never learned this about Einstein in school…oh wait, I do know why. Yeah, I mean how could you “tarnish” the legacy of one of the world’s greatest physicists by linking him to the fight for racial equality, especially since he openly calls out racism as a “disease” of the white oppressor. Of course this isn’t a bigger part of his historical narrative.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background,

or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love,

for love comes more naturally to the human…

What is the Voting Rights Act and how does it impact my life?

Why you should care?

There is no more fundamental right we have as Americans than the right to vote. In the majority opinion, Chief Justice Roberts wrote that the coverage today is based on decades-old data and racist practices. This, despite thousands of pages of evidence presented at trial documenting present-day voter suppression tactics. As…
