Oh my God…idiots, idiots everywhere

This website is full of them.

And it’s unbelievable how gullible people are. Just because a post has thousands of notes does not make it fact. Just because it’s on the internet does NOT MAKE IT FACT. Tumblerinas have a tendency to hop on the bandwagon of any post that has a number of notes attached to it, and view it as true, because it conforms to what they would like to think is true. There is a severe lack of critical thinking evident.

Here are three recent examples that appeared on my dash:

"Ermergerd white scientists are propagating binary gender bias by referring to things as male and female!"

"Jesus is a mythical character that takes after Osiris and Thor."

"Wtf Amadeus Mozart is black, stop appropriating black culture by calling him white."

And on and on and on.

You need to put on your thinking cap and take a critical look at posts that you think are ‘fact’ before reblogging them, because as it is there is too much stupid on this website.

This is what Mozart actually looks like. The image was found in a radio station in Belgium. Fact - the Moors (Black people) brought Classical Music to Europe.
You’re welcome.

Not only that but when you read the REAL bios of him, he’s described as having brown skin, “negroid features” (broad, wide nose, etc) and wiry hair. There was a post going around back in February that was very enlightening.

Wasn’t Beethoven part Moor (Black) too? There was a book written about his hair because Europeans were so transfixed with it!

Yes, Beethoven was Black. 
Real history returns.



Never heard about this but I read about Beethoven. He was referred to as “the black boy” and people were awed by his afro. 

I read up on this some more and I’ve come to the consensus that he certainly wasn’t WHITE. Definitely mulatto, and possible full black. But the idea that this man was caucasian is definitely white people trying to whitewash every revolutionary figure in history. What’s new?

Oh my god. This is a trolling post. Right? Right? You’re not seriously crediting a radio station as “rediscovering” Mozart’s ethnicity?
Just in case some people are…(cos there are stupid people out there)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was white. He was born in 1756, in Salzburg, Austria, and performed all around Europe from a young age. He was a European musical genius.
Here’s a picture of him painted in 1763: 
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the musical genius, was white.

But perhaps you were thinking of Chevalier de Saint-George, who became known as the 'Black Mozart' from the Caribbean? He was also a composer around the time of Amadeus Mozart (b. 1745). Yes, he was black:

For those taking the pap about Mozart being “white-washed” seriously…don’t. Go get a history book out of the library and read it. Go look at the paintings that were created when these figures were living.
Check the facts for yourself before joining an idiots crusade.
(As for Beethoven, I can’t find a single reputable source for the comments that he was black. It’s plausible, but without decent evidence I remain a skeptic).
