luv u (except if ur white then...we have to make a proposition here sry).
Jesse Owens at the Berlin Olympics, August 1936.
In August of 1936, American athlete Jesse Owens won four gold medals, setting three world records and tying a fourth in the 100 yard dash, all in front of Adolf Hitler, who had planned to use the games as a tool to promote the physical superiority of the Aryan race.
Funfact- While Hitler was pretty pissed that Owens won, it was Hitler who was gracious enough to actually acknowledge that Owens won.
“Hitler didn’t snub me – it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn’t even send me a telegram.”
Owens was never invited to the White House to be congratulated, and he never received so much as a word from FDR or from Truman. Whereas Hitler sent Owens a commemorative photograph of himself.
You know you’re fucked up when even Hitler sends somebody a complimentary photograph and you didn’t send them jackshit.
omg, the very idea, Owens owned a personal photograph of hitler…like…the very idea of that just shakes me a bit, the ultimate racist sent you a picture of himself…omg
wow this is truly mindfucking
the fact that the ultimate racist of all racists acknowledged and sent a gift to owens
and america never gave two shits.
can you believe that?
