Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State. 

As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion. 

So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”

The message is clear | Follow micdotcom

Big Mama Thornton - Hound Dog

You ain’t nothing but a hound dog (x)

The original FUCK Elvis!

You heard it right. Elvis stole the song from her and got all the credit.

White artists stealing black art and  sterilizing it for white audiences is nothing new. 

While I don’t care for Elvis, the above isn’t true.

It is true that Elvis stole musical stylings from Black musicians, but Hound Dog isn’t an example of that. Big Mama Thornton recorded it first, but Hound Dog isn’t her song and Elvis didn’t steal it from her. Hound Dog was written by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller, both white men. Lieber and Stoller wrote songs for Elvis and Hound Dog was one of their songs that Elvis recorded.

Oddly enough, Hound Dog is an example of Elvis jacking other white people. The version Elvis recorded was “borrowed” from the Freddie Bell and the Bellboys interpretation of the song after he saw them performing live. Hear their version here. That’s actually who Elvis copied.

If you want an actual example of a Black artist being erased by Elvis, then Otis Blackwell is the perfect example. He wrote the song ‘Don’t Be Cruel’. Elvis took most of the royalties. Blackwell wrote some of the biggest hits Elvis ever had btw. Elvis became a very rich and popular person because of Blackwell. Many don’t know who Blackwell is, even though he’s written some of the biggest hits in music history. He wrote hit after hit for a lot of people.

Blackwell also wrote ‘Great Balls of Fire' made popular by Jerry Lee Lewis and the song 'Fever' popularized by Peggy Lee and later on Madonna. The person who recorded Fever first was a Black kid named Little Willie John who was 18 at the time. Click here for the original recording of Fever.

I think it’s important to remember that Leiber and Stoller were both Jewish men and they wrote the song for her but yeah, this is a song Elvis covered not a song he stole.

one of my favorite things is how people talk to themselves in tumblr tags, taking this space designed for metadata classification and using it as a form of parenthetical speech. those grey little tags feel so cozy, a whispered dimension to the flat communication of the net

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?

Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.

ive also noticed that people always focus on one particular line of this song which apparently makes it “skinny shaming”

image

but nobody ever acknowledges the following lines?

image

the main theme of the song is giving love to larger women because larger women are so commonly shamed for their bodies, ignored by the media and generally given less love and acceptance than thinner women, but the song in its entirety is a message that all women are beautiful. People are failing to acknowledge that
