Super cool, but I wonder why the creator decided to use that font for the Cyrillic alphabet; it’s quite archaic. Also confused why Farsi (zabân farsi) is in the Latin alphabet, while it’s written almost exclusively in Perso-Arabic (or Cyrillic, but Tajik is usually considered its own language)

Also Greenland speaks Greenlandic (an Inuit language), Danish is not an official language.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure the Norway one is wrong as well?

Isn’t Nynorsk more of a way of spelling?

Exactly what I thought

Also, why blanket both North America and Australia as anglophone, when both have dozens of important indigenous languages?

Same with South America btw.

EE.g. Australia

brandnewcoat asked: Hey, I've seen you against people sauing "we're all human" but I've always thought it as kind of good. I mean, to me it's a way of saying to other white people "we all suffer the same way" so we should be making an effort to listen to each other and create a better ground. We're all human so we should all be working together for justice. Is this how you see it, or is it mainstream just kind of an extension of 'not seeing race Sorry if this is a bother, but I value your opinion on these issues.

black-australia:

Because using the “we’re all human” argument ignores the very fact that not everyone is actually treated as a human being. It ignores the struggles and experiences of PoC who suffer from racial injustices and inequality. Because, contrary to popular belief, racism still exists today. Still as rampant as it were say 50 odd years ago. Race still matters and that’s why the “we’re all human”, “we all bleed red” and “I don’t see race, I’m colorblind” arguments are complete bullshit.

Australian Aborigine medicine woman.

Please don’t label this woman as an “Australian Aborigine medicine woman”. Why? Because:
Aboriginal peoples are diverse and your post homogenizes the many nations, cultures and languages of Aboriginal Australia.
We actually don’t know if she is a “medicine woman” (or whatever the heck that means).
The use of the term “Aborigine” is quite offensive due to the negative connotations it holds.
After searching around the internet for a little while, I found that this woman is a Djabugay (also known as Tjapukai) woman. This nation lies in the rain forests in Cairns in Tropical North Queensland. 
Please do your research next time and provide the identity of the person. Identity is extremely important, especially to Indigenous peoples.
