There was no plane. 
The woman - Hermione - their daughter - had brought something called an “international portkey" and after a few terrifying moments they were standing outside a house that her newly freed memories itched to recognise.
It wasn’t that cold but she still shivered at the persistent sensation of deja vu until her memories settled.
The woman - their daughter - led them into the house, showed them things matching memories perfectly.
It didn’t feel like home though, just as the woman - Hermione - didn’t feel like their daughter.
She wondered if it ever would.

the boys who use superheroes to propagate and enforce oppressive racial and sexual narratives—even the writers—aren’t real fans. they’re usurpers. they’ve betrayed what these characters stand for and why they were created. Superheroes were dreamed up and drawn by kids who had to…

museumofmodernerotica said: Maybe this is a crazy question, but how did Europeans know what Africans looked like? I know that some of the paintings here are of North Africans/Middle Easterners, but others clearly depict people born south of the Sahara. I've heard of Prester John but I never imagined that medieval Europeans were aware that Prester John would have had brown skin. Am I missing something?

Like. There are a lot of things I could say here. But I’m just going to do my best to answer your question, and the answer is either very simple or very complicated, depending on your current point of view.

1. “They” knew what people with brown skin looked like because people with brown skin had been there literally THE ENTIRE TIME. Some (and father back, ALL) of “them” had brown skin themselves.

2. “People with Brown Skin” and “Europeans” are not separate and mutually exclusive groups.

3. No matter how far back you go, the mythical time that you’re looking for, when all-white, racially and culturally isolated Europe was “real”, will continue to recede from your grasp until it winkles out the like imaginary place it is.

We can just keep going back. In every area, from all walks of life, rich and poor, kings and peasants, artists and iconoclasts, before there were countries and continents, before there were white people.

The time when “EVERYONE” in Europe was White does not exist. They knew what people with brown skin looked like because they were there. They knew what “Africans” looked like because they were there, and they weren’t “they”, they were us, or you. I think what you’re missing is something that never existed.
