Guys, this has been thoroughly debunked聽since聽2000, and it does the statue on the left there a huge disservice to treat her as an unwanted copy. That鈥檚 Lady Liberty of St. Maarten, an homage from 2007 (post-dating the debunking, even) that was dedicated to the anniversary of the ending of slavery there: The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor is a representation of Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, with bonus American iconography: HOWEVER: Lady Liberty in New York is not based on a white woman, either.聽 She鈥檚 a Muslim Arab woman, at least in terms of the modeling of her face. Her face was reused from an abandoned project to build a colossal statue of a modern Egyptian Arab peasant woman near the Suez Canal (as verified by the Smithsonian, no less). While she wasn鈥檛 originally dedicated specifically for immigrants, the poem聽鈥淭he New Colossus鈥 was added specifically because of the position she occupied in the harbor and the symbolic visual power she would have to immigrants coming in. The author, Emma Lazarus, was Jewish. It鈥檚 important to fight back on the whitewashing of history, because it happens left and right, but it shouldn鈥檛 happen at the cost of misinformation that treats Lady Liberty of St. Maarten as an unwanted prototype rather than a powerful monument in her own right and, ironically, claims that she鈥檚 now a white woman when she鈥檚 not while also ignoring the powerful influence of the Jewish-American community on the final version. Geez, I鈥檓 really tired of people trying to spout false shit all over tumblr. Like, this post has 37K notes, But I assure you, that like many other false posts, 戮 of the notes are from people who saw the false bit and prefered to reblog it that way and be mad, instead of just making a simple google search Hi Darling Friends of Tumblr.

That was a different blogger but thatpettyblackgirl has circulated another version of it. That other blogger has a posting history that鈥檚 full of the same kinds of things thatpettyblackgirl posts - lots of reposts from twitter, lots of screenshots from other sites, not a lot of commentary, and things that are decontextualized enough to make them seem worse than they are or to totally misrepresent the actions depicted (like this reposted video and tweets indignant about a man being arrested when the very specific purpose of his protest was to get arrested). It reminds me of that post about coconut husks as a wood alternative that鈥檚 been circulating recently - a screenshot of a white man above a news article is posted with the complaint that white people 鈥渄iscovering鈥 coconuts after disregarding them as useless when the article is about a new method of processing coconut husks that allows them to be put to new uses. That blog is fascinating. And has a lot in common with thatpettyblackgirl - both of them reblog their own posts at a rate that鈥檚 higher than I鈥檝e seen on most tumblrs (btw, you should know that a while back I asked for volunteers who would let me explore their tumblrs and while my research sample isn鈥檛 random it is a collection of small and large blogs and none of them have *checks notes* reblogged their own post of a bunch of screencaps of a tweet storm five times in the last couple of days). Both of them tend to post screencaps, neither one really writes much.

 Two things I didn't know until I was
 yesterday years old:
 1) Memorial Day was started by
 African Americans honoring fallen
 Union solders
 2) The Statue of Liberty was gifted to
 America to celebrate freed slaves, not
 immigrants.
 Erasure is real, you all. But that part
 we knew.

One of the Earliest Memorial Day Ceremonies Was Held by Freed Slaves

Just wait until you google what the original Statue of Liberty(that got refused by America)looked like


For those of you who don鈥檛 want to look it up yourselves:
Lady Liberty is a black woman.
