OH MY GOD! So I was in the target with my little sister and came across this. I honestly dont even know what to say.

The attack on white women in America must be stopped. Everyday we are made to feel as though we are less than, ugly and should hate ourselves. We are encouraged to get collengin impants in our lips, breast implants and butt injections to to have black features. 

Today my little sister even told me, “Ashley, I want to be a black girl.” Do you know how that made me feel?!?!?!?!?!? I felt like I failed her. 

The media wants white women to be ashamed of themselves. And it is time to stop that. Everywhere I turn, i see black women stealing white men, like thieves in the night. I dont mean to be racist but honestly sometimes I wish we could go back to segregation.

I went on twitter to see what others were thinking and I even realized that most people saying she was ugly were INDEED black men! How am I to believe black women are beautiful if their own men dont. 

Im so upset, my little sister asked my dad if she could go tanning the other day and he just walked out of the room. What is America coming too? Why is the assault on my face, body, lips, eyes and skin so harsh?

If you ask me, most beautiful should have went to either Jennifer Lawrence or Anna Kendrick, not because their white but because physically they are stunning.

this post lmao

y’all look at this

look at what Lupita has done


I WASN’T READY

Lol white girls can’t feel good about themselves unless they are standing on the backs of black women. It’s pretty pathetic. FYI, we know you secretly think we are a threat. You are literally not as beautiful as y’all think, because if it was true, you wouldn’t need to shit on us 24/7 just for your egos.

Ok but it didn’t go to either of them because Lupita was badder than them. No POC encourages White people to get lip injections or be blacker homegirl. That yo people who do that. Yo people.

IS THIS REAL LIFE

OMG. lol white girls. .. you been wanting to be us. since we got stolen from the continents … you did everything / do everything to destroy us .. mwahahaha …. pass laws did not work! ban natural hair did not work…. . you and black men can join up and bitch together about Lupita M’s glorious ness … cry cry cry little assholes

Black women who made the Time 100 List For 2014. Creative singer, dancer, artist, philanthropist and feminist Beyoncé, creative outspoken actor, artist and feminist Kerry Washington, tennis legend, philanthropist and business owner Serena WilliamsChicagoan and now head of U.N. World Food Programme Ertharin CousinNigerian economist and past Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Ugandan activist Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe, South African human rights lawyer Thuli Madonsela, and Kenyan tech guru Ory Okolloh. 

Laverne Cox and Janet Mock DIDN’T make the list though. Clearly both had a major impact in 2013. Both have been outspoken about Black trans women and trans women of colour’s rights and lives, both have created remarkable and important art and both have been influential and highly visible. They should’ve been there. Easily.

Beyoncé made the Time 100 List in 2013 as well, but this year has the cover after a successful and influential year in 2013, from her Super Bowl performance, to her world tour, to her incredible visual album BEYONCÉ, to being more outspoken with her feminist politics through her music, and through other projects—some I like (speaking, writing, fundraising, philanthropy), some I’ve critiqued (i.e. #BanBossy/Lean In)—all while being committed to her family, her marriage to Jay-Z and motherhood to Blue Ivy

Several Black men made the list as well, including two of my personal faves, Oscar winning film director Steve McQueen and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman

As I wrote about yesterday, there is a DIFFERENCE between the legitimate desire for representation of Black women’s humanity in the media while still creating our own media (as ignoring the mainstream does not erase harmful messages about us are placed there) and "oh that’s White approval!" This distinction and understanding of how media representation impacts us is important.

When people reference your race when describing your career, is that a point of pride or is that something you think is overplayed in the media as part of your story, or is it a combination?

Don Cheadle: I don’t know, I don’t often… I guess I get asked that question sporadically. It’s not often what is led with, you know, and I don’t know if that’s just trepidation to dip their toe in the pool about that subject matter, or if it’s just because it’s less relevant than the work that I’m doing. But I mean it obviously comes up. [x]
