Go out and support ya boy Ta-Nehisi Coates @ethiopienne
Do you know why this word exists?
Drapetomania is the fictitious disease that the Southern slave doctor Samuel A. Cartwright created to categorize the tendency for slaves to run away as a mental illness to be cured. Because white people wholeheartedly believed that enslaving us was a service to us ( saving us from our brutish, lascivious, and lazy ways) and any right minded individual could see that..The prescribed
punishmenttreatment for drapetomania was torture and hard labor.
Do not put this on your artsy blogs.
Do not erase the deplorable history behind it.
This is a truly heinous word. Whoever originally posted this was an ignorant fuck. And this definition is a crock of shit.
An overwhelming urge to run away.
Go fuck yourself.
Rule of thumb: Never trust any word that contains “mania”, there is usually historical oppression and destruction behind them.
James Potter sat up in the wizard afterlife just watching Fred and George fucking shit up like:
- LILY THEY HAVE THE MAP
- LILY LOOK AT THE SWAMP THATS BLOODY BRILLIANT
- HAHA FUCK FILCH
- HAHA FUCK UMBRIDGE
- FUCKING INSANE ASS FIREWORKS LILY LOOK HOW FAR PRANKING HAS EVOLVED
- I COULD HAVE IMPROVED MY PRANKING EFFICIENCY BY 47% IF HAD WEASLEYS WIZARDS WHEEZES
- NO FRED DIED
Then when Fred comes to the afterlife James is like I’m a big fan of your work, btw I’m Prongs no need to thank me.

girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together

But okay listen: 7 years ago today, MILLIONS. LITERALLY MILLIONS. of Potterheads from all over the world were sitting with their brand-new copies of the Deathly Hallows and taking their final journey with Harry. It’s amazing when you think of the sheer scope of it-that many people in a sense united by this one book, riding the same emotional roller coaster simultaneously.
