You Got It From Black Women

“Women who fought and sacrificed so much for equality and liberty and justice for all, including the black women who are often too often overlooked, but so often prove they are the backbone of our democracy.”

-Madam Vice President Kamala Harris

And this is just a FRACTION of what we’ve given. Please Don’t try to make black women masculine, an aesthetic that’s so feminine you have to go out and purchase the body. Please Don’t racially troll, harass, disrespect and be complicit with all of the above (because that makes you a racist too) the people you need to be considered cool and hip. Even our caricatured worst is emulated. You welcome. Creator: Essence Gu

I’m Holding Back

What if I weren’t as tough and strong to handle the bullying? This is something I think to myself everyday. What if it were just the wrong moment, if I were going through something devastating and couldn’t take anymore. What if you basic bitches made it so dark I couldn’t stand to live another day? Did you think those things when you decided through some kind of bullshit delusion that I had no value? Because I’m not a diluted, debased attention whore, who doesn’t love herself so I need constant validation to feel noticed? To put people down to feel power. Make no mistake I don’t feel bad for a single person who decided racial trolling was okay. You had it coming. Who the fuck do you think you are to treat people in such a manner, to co-sign it? All of you are trash and trust me I’m holding back. Black women are not a punching bag and you all belong where you’re headed. Do you think I care? Did you? Via: Okay Nevermind

B.A.PS

Preach Whitley.

Nothing will ever stop me,

from loving being a black woman.

Even at our caricatured worst,

we still move the culture.

That part though.

P.U.P

Stands for pretty ugly people, masquerading under glamours (but that’s a topic for another time) of beauty. This year I was racially trolled by MULTIPLE celebrities, celebrisites, and pseudo somebodies. The most abhorrent part is the facade of caring about the lives of colored people (or colored people aiding in the bullying) to cover your ass. I screamed on all occasions of these interactions, where I was minding my business and they came for me unsolicited. Just because you can’t be light doesn’t mean I deserve for you to smear your conditioned racism, blatant racism, insecurities, or whatever miserable things you feel on me. Then like right-winged black people, expect me to be your punching bag, suppressing the trauma you’ve tried to inflict, for the sake of your peace in some regard. How do you sleep with yourselves? This also goes for all the people who thought it was cute to show support for these said trash people, to what teach me you’re trash too? Do you really think you’re a model human being, when you switch gears because of who I’m connected to, or karma? Do you think lying is cute? Making stuff up about people with your one dimensional, do anything for a dollar selves? Do you like making fake accounts as grown people to demean people who call you what you are? To troll people who were fans for no reason? It would be a disservice to myself, my people, my ancestry to let you slide. And I won’t. You didn’t feel bad, neither do I. You get what you give. I told you guys who and what I was, but you made assumptions and dismissed me based on my gender and skin color. Still I’ve gone easy on a lot of you. Please never assume my life is as surface as yours. I have substance. God is good to those who are good.Via: It’s The Hive Style

De-Conditioning: Just Because You Didn’t See It

Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. All too often people have dismissed racism as a thing of the past, because seeing is believing. Only if seen by white people right? An innocent life was taken, a crime was committed, police officers are not above the laws they enforce. In fact they should be held the most accountable. ARREST THE COPS THAT KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR. PERIOD. Why do you believe the cops haven’t been locked up? Via: Upscale Magazine
