Straight black men never seem comfortable in their own sexuality unless they can denigrate Black women both trans and cis. Like, y’all are truly sick and scary.

Stop generalizing.

How about no.

someone feels targeted …. .. but you know it’s the truth

It’s a generalization, but it’s heavily documented daily. Everyday. They can’t seem to learn how to build their manhood without shitting on a Black women.

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 Williams, Chicagoan and now head of U.N. World Food Programme Ertharin Cousin, Nigerian 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.

Are you a Conservative who believes Cliven Bundy is a great patriotic American and refuse to believe he said that “negros were better off as slaves” (even though as a right winger you probably also secretly agree with him)?

Welp, if last night’s post wasn’t proof enough for you, here’s video evidence of Cliven Bundy, in the old wrinkly white flesh, making those remarks courtesy of Media Matters:

This is currently one of my favorite moves at the gym to get my butt lifted and my hamstrings stronger! Leg press! You MUST be careful though. You need flexibility in your calves as well as precision in holding the bar with your feet. If it’s your first time, do it without any weights at all or have someone with you. 3 sets of 12-15 weighted is what you should strive for! Really though, be careful. Start light.
