The events of this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia are equally troubling and sad. While America is great melting pot of people and ideas, this only works with full acceptance. America means many things to many different people, and sadly for some citizens of this country, America apparently means a land of white pride and nationalism. However, this is entirely antithetical to what America is and has become. This nation would crumble to dust without the contributions of all of its peoples and cultures. Hatred and bigotry have no place here. We’re looking at some anti-racist tattoos today because even though we rarely take public stances here at Tattoodo, we’re taking one now on the subject of racism and fascism. And our position basically boils down to “fuck this shit.”
Robert E. Lee was no hero. Take a look at this quote from the general and try to fathom why we should honor him with statues:
We are forever grateful to those on the front-lines of this fight. We give our unconditional support to all the active Antifa movements in this country. And we give a big Tattoodo salute to anyone out there sporting an anti-racist tattoo.
