Why is it so hard for you to get cultural appropriation. Why.

Choosing not to brush my hair is not disrespectful to anybody’s culture in any way. Why can’t you see we’re all earthlings?

Do you, lady ! Your dreads are amazing. These blackies are just mad that you our hair is beautiful and you are able to have beautiful normal hair when you’re done with it

Ew what the fuck is that comment

whoa whoa no. Dreads are fine no matter your race but calling people ‘Blackies’ is an absolute NO. And saying they will be jealous because they would have ‘normal’ hair after??? All hair is normal hair?? ?

Racism is never ever ever okay. 

They’re racists against whites for not letting us have dreads. When their shit colored smelly hair is in dreads then it’s fine I guess but we can’t?

"THESE BLACKIES"

"SHIT COLORED SMELLY HAIR"

This is what I love about open racists.

At least you know who the enemy is.

This is why I’m beginning to say “no” to white folks with dreads…

””blackies are just mad”

"beautiful normal people hair when you’re done”

"their shit colored smelly hair

When people ask why many Black people are vehemently opposed to white people wanting to be a part of the natural hair movement, remember these statements. Remember that this is not just about hair, but about the stigma and hatred we face for embracing it. It’s about a willful lack of understanding or respect.

So guys, I did a thing where I made “oatmeal” without using any type of grain…. And it was AMAZING. I’ve been dealing with some stomach issues lately, and after extensive research, I decided to try a grain free, low carb/sugar diet that is high in healthy fats and protein, and honestly I feel so much better after only a few days!
This was Basic Vanilla N’Oatmeal topped with crunchy peanut butter, toasted coconut chips, hemp hearts, and blueberries! Wondering what it’s actually made of? Scoot on over to my blog to find out, where you can also read more about my decision to eat high fat, low carb 😊 #meals (at caseys-wholesome-kitchen.blogspot.com)

it so pretty

I clicked through…I can think of better breakfast options personally.

50 Shades of Abuse Flyer - Canada

Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticizedfiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.

so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex
it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine
i know my shit okay

im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid

Let me
just
fucking
drop
some fucking
knowledge on you right now.
Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.
So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.
Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.
Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.
Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.
Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstand, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.

And this post is going into my bookmarks, because it is beautiful.

What scares me most is the fact that people, misinformed and ignorant people, will now try to enter the community/find play partners with the dangerous ideas of what BDSM is. They won’t respect a sub, they won’t listen.
And that can seriously hurt people. People can DIE.

Thank fuck, I love this post

this is why cultural appropriation is fucking horrible. You take our culture, you take our labor, you take our spirituality BUT you don’t want us, our brown bodies.
fuck you, you don’t deserve anything.
No, you are not appreciating my culture when at the same time You are deporting us and oppressing us.

Cops Are Highway Robbers: And It’s Legal.

“The eye-opening event was pulling those files,” Guillory told me. One of the first cases that caught his attention was titled State of Texas vs. One Gold Crucifix. The police had confiscated a simple gold cross that a woman wore around her neck after pulling her over for a minor traffic violation. No contraband was reported, no criminal charges were filed, and no traffic ticket was issued. That’s how it went in dozens more cases involving cash, cars, and jewelry. A number of files contained slips of paper of a sort he’d never seen before. These were roadside property waivers, improvised by the district attorney, which threatened criminal charges unless drivers agreed to hand over valuables.

Click the link.

And don’t EVER trust cops. NOT EVER. Whatever good they might supposedly do finding murderers (if and when they find them), isn’t worth how they refuse to help in rape cases, ostracize and retraumatize the survivors, how they rob the public, how they terriorize and brutalize, how it keeps coming out that they’re the ones dong the most raping, drug dealing and stealing. How often they’re veined, marbled and thoroughly corrupted by hate groups like the KKK. It isn’t worth it to even talk to them given how they treat the queer community; gays and bisexuals as well as transgender individuals - especially transgender individuals, cause they never want to find the people who murder them.

COPS are straight up govt gangs. And when the govt don’t give them enough money - they’ll squeeze it out of YOU.

Street organizations only WISHED they had it so good.

Michael Bay got ONE thing right in his whole damn life. “To Punish And Enslave.”

Except it ain’t about mechanical ‘monsters’. It’s the history of the slave patrol turned police.

And don’t… don’t fucking say NOT ALL COPS. Cause where the good ones at? Everytime I hear about a cop whistle blower, he’s had his kneecaps done in and lost his job and is half in hiding somewhere sending information long distance to the right prosecuting attorney.

That’s what they do to their OWN for calling out their bullshit. The bullshit extreme enough that someone finally feels bad. The rest? Give a little to get along, cause they don’t want to be outside that collective - they know what shit is going on.

Do you know how good their PR is? How subtle? It’s not ALLOWED on tv to show a cop NOT yelling freeze and stating who they are repeatedly and giving the perpetrator time to step down. It’s NOT ALLOWED. Not on broadcast tv. And not on some basic cable either. On TV cops get shot rather than shoot the wrong person, or shoot too soon - in reality the morgues are full of dead men and women, even children who looked suspicious, or reached for keys, or didn’t kneel fast enough, or somehow snapped their own necks while handcuffed and alone in the backseat of a locked patrol car.

Govt funded THUGLIFE. Govt funded CODE OF SILENCE.

Maybe one day people will look back on how things are now, and it’ll be a bit like how we currently look at how Prohibition pumped up the underworld.

Until then though…

Loving Black women by sexualizing our bodies is not the equivalent of caring about us.

everythingrhymeswithalcohol:

the-goddamazon:

So just because you say you “love” Black women because there’s some shorty whose booty you want in your inbox does not mean you actually love us. You’re just sexualizing us and calling it love.

Why the heck does it have to be just black women and not all women? or even just restricted to women, why not include men?

Sexualizing anyone’s body isn’t loving or caring them.

If you fucking want a post to be about all women, then MAKE YOUR OWN AND STOP BULLSHITTING.

This post was about Black women. Either agree or get the fuck out

we can’t even have our own oppresion

You know Black women aren’t supposed to focus on their own issues. Not ever. Who else will fight for everyone else? Who else should bear the weight of the world? After all, Black women are supposed to be mules for everyone else.

Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.
