First time cooking Thanksgiving dinner on my own :) so exciting
I don’t even watch DWTS
but I’m emotionally invested in Amber Riley winning it all
i bet at the abc family headquarters just has a big red button on a wall labeled “harry potter marathon” in big letters
And there’s a sign next to it that says “It has been  days since our last harry potter marathon”
The higher that number is, the more uneasy the employees feel.
FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.
This is terrorism.
KPRC, a local news station in Houston, TX tweeted out a story about a 12-year-old natural beauty who was told by the private school in which she is enrolled to either cut her “wild” natural hair or face expulsion. As you can see from the photo above, I clearly had a problem with the way the tweet was worded.
There is no question that her hair is natural, but there is debate as to whether or not it is wild, meaning untamed. To many White-Americans, hair like hers, and like mine, is looked at as wild, untamed, unkempt, disheveled and in dire need of maintenance. They aren’t able to see that our choice to wear our hair naturally has NOTHING to do with societal norms, but everything to do with pride & acceptance of who we are. They don’t realize that it actually takes a LOT more to maintain natural Black hair, that Black females take the time to care for hair like this, and that when it is worn this way it’s because it was MEANT TO BE.
Just because her hair is NOT straight does NOT mean it isn’t TAMED. It isn’t WILD, it isn’t CRAZY, it isn’t something to be ashamed of or made to feel like it isn’t acceptable. It is NATURAL & got dammit it’s BEAUTIFUL!
it’s more than hair style
this child is suffering due to wearing her hair how it grows from her scalp and the racist that deem her natural hair, black, negro hair unacceptable.
so gather round white folks, you want to call your hair an afro so bad.
you want to wear dread locks so bad
you will never know the pain and stress of the losses you will take a black person with black people hair. Our babies are being expelled from school, we are having a jobs threatened, all the while white folks only want to claim the elements that they feel are “cool” for a few seconds while we, as a people suffer for being black 24/7.
I really hate people sometimes. I really fucking do.
Since when did Tumblr get so Goddamn racist? I myself am a ‘white folk’ and i see nothing wrong with her hair. Its beautiful, but by stereotyping all of us ‘white folks’ into the same group as these pompous assholes who told the little girl her hair was too wild makes you just as racist as they are. Believe it or not there are people out there, like myself and MANY others who do not see color. But by constantly screaming “She is a racist, He is a racist, They’re all racists” actually makes YOU the racist one. So tell me, why in the name of God, can’t we all just see past color?
racism= opression plus power. You are not being oppressed…you are using the wrong terms.
futhermore this post isn’t about you.
I also love how they keep passive aggressively quoting “white folk” and slyly ridiculing and making a spectacle of Southern AAVE. White people quoting black people’s vernacular in that manner is definitely a micro-aggressive racist tactic that we have seen over and over and over.
Also like… you as a white person, me as a white person… white people in general have the luxury of being able to be “colorblind” because our “color” (being white) is what is considered “normal” and “default” by society. It’s easy to be “colorblind” when you’re not being oppressed, harassed, and made to feel awful for the color of your skin on a daily basis so please just shush because you are embarrassing yourself and me and everyone. Stop patting yourself on the back for “not seeing color” and realize the immense amount of privilege you have that allows you to say that.
