  • black woman: *wears a weave*
  • people: LOL look at this ratchet bitch wearin a weave because she cant grow her own hair do you even have hair under there i mean do you even wear your real hair out at all i hate weaves its like false advertising i dont see why you'd wear fake hair when you could just have your own.
  • black woman: *gets a perm*
  • people: why do you want to be white why do you hate yourself so much to be burning your hair out with the creamy crack every 4-6 weeks and it cant even be healthy for your hair or your scalp you need to let it go and embrace who you really are i hope that in time you come to accept yourself and what God has given you.

"Well, when I was nine years old Star Trek came on, I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, 'Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there's a black lady on television and she ain't no maid!' I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.”— Whoopi Goldberg

Ain’t this some shit… 
Black Man Convicted for Shooting White Teenager
John H. White, 54, was found guilty of the second-degree manslaughter charge that prosecutors had sought, and of criminal possession of a weapon.
He will face a maximum term of 5 to 15 years in prison.
Mr. White was convicted of shooting Daniel Cicciaro, 17, point-blank in the face on Aug. 9, 2006. Daniel and several friends had left a party and showed up Mr. White’s house just after 11 p.m. to challenge his son Aaron, then 19, to a fight, and had used threats, profanities and racial epithets. Mr. White awoke and grabbed a loaded Beretta pistol he kept in the garage of his house in Miller Place, a predominantly white hamlet on Long Island.
Mr. White testified that Aaron woke him from a deep sleep the night of the shooting, yelling that that “some kids are coming here to kill me.” Mr. White said he considered the angry teenagers a “lynch mob.”
He said their racist language recalled the hatred he saw as a child visiting the segregated Deep South and stories of his grandfather’s being chased out of Alabama in the 1920s by the Ku Klux Klan.
Mr. White testified that his grandfather taught him how to shoot and bequeathed him the pistol he used.
A lawyer for Mr. White, Frederick K. Brewington, insisted in his summation that this was a “modern-day lynch mob” and that Mr. White considered it “history replaying itself.”
_____________
THIS. THIS BULLSHIT. THIS IS THE EXACT BULLSHIT THAT CAUSES SO MUCH FUCKING OUTRAGE.
A MOB OF WHITE IDIOTS SHOW UP ON YOUR PROPERTY THREATENING YOUR FAMILY AND YOU TAKE ACTION, YOUR BLACK ASS IS GOING PRISON.
BUT IF A FAT WHITE CREEP GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO PLAY JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER OF A BLACK TEENAGER, AND THE SUPPORT IS OVERFLOWING. IT’S THE TEENAGER’S FAULT.
I CANNOT DEAL.

to all the white people claiming “the same thing would happen if it was the other way around!”
except it wasn’t the other way around.
White was defending his son against a group of people that broke into his house and threatened the life of his child
Zimmerman followed a kid in his car and then on foot with a gun, then killed him for EXISTING IN HIS WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD

There you have it

tumblr could learn a thing or two from yahoo! news

seriously, I’ve been thinking this forever

tw: abuse, victim blaming
mental health off limits sure but she deserves to be attacked/criticized for telling rihanna she deserved to be beaten b/c she’s “ugly”
i have no interest in defending someone who would say something like that. the worst thing about how people are talking about her is this idea that we ought to excuse every vile thing she says because of untreated mental illness. are you fuckin serious?? let’s stop perpetuating the myth that mental illness makes a person abusive & actually hold her accountable for this shit, how about that?


whitney houston was a walking crack joke for 20 years, no one said ‘lets leave her alone, she needs help’…give amanda bynes a reality show and an eight-ball and hand me the remote.

Passive Resistance Training, SNCC, Atlanta, GA, 1960, by James Karales, courtesy Duke University Library

(http://www.flickr.com/photos/photo-tractatus/4915553610/in/photostream/)

people had to be trained to deal wit the evil of white people

I hope this makes it clear to folks that non-violence as expressed during the Civil Rights Movement was not simply a moral or political choice. It was a tactical application as well.

Do y’all think SNCC, SCLC, CORE, MLK, Jr. or anyone else wanted to witness their people being beaten, that they wanted to stay their fists and guns when their CHILDREN were being murdered? If you do, I suggest you go back to history class, because MLK, Medgar Evers, Bayard Rustin, almost any person you can think of who advocated non-violence had armed guards and personnel in place for their and their people’s safety.

Non-violence as a resistance strategy was an attempt at provocation. Recognize that. Recognize that’s why these folks are training. Because they’re performing provocation through passive resistance. By not striking back they were illustrating the madness and vitriol of white supremacy. They were exposing in the most dramatic manner possible the denial of their humanity.



Understand: This was not turn the other cheek, this was looking into the eyes of the Devil and not backing down.

this is a damn good point to counter all the nonviolence moralistic liberal bullshit going on continuously in activist spaces.

Can we also take a moment to talk about how important it was that the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee had the foresight to bring in a professional photographer to create a document of this sort of training. That the conversation taking place in this tumblr thread is only occurring today because of a photographic record created years ago is a testimony to the importance of the photographer to radical discourses.

Bolded for emphasis.

remind me to reblog this on monday

repost…i swear, i need more smart black people in my life, in person on the regular. *speaking it into existence*

i ain’t done with this fool.

my dad compared me to a mosquito. im either gonna get blood, or ima get smacked LOL
well im going for blood
mr. bellfield has a blogtalk show where he seems to be very opinionated about what women on welfare should do, what you should do when your man cheats, blah blah blah.
excuse me, sir, you claim to be a black nerd-stay in your lane and talk about comics and shit.
i went to his twitter and he commented on how racist America is. let’s reflect on the previous post about him…
so i said: @ALBELLFIELD how dare you comment on how racist this country is when you yourself hate black women lets see how he responds. im glad this asshole called me out on facebook, and i really dont care that he blocked me on there he’s going to have to do more.
i am not playing, if black women are not good enough for you, and we are ‘tricking men into having babies’ with our weaves and fake eyelashes, then our money and our clicks on your websites arent any good either.
black women, stop giving men like this your money.
