• Me: "*speaks Jamaican Patwah/Patois*"
  • Racist: "This is America, speak English! No other languages are ever spoken here, and this country founded on genocide/settler colonialism and anti-Blackness/slavery should only involve the languages that I choose to hear, though I encroached your personal space and interrupted your conversation in a dialect that you were not speaking to me in."
  • Me: "*speaks African American Vernacular English*"
  • Racist: "This is America and I don't care if AAVE is actually a language with a structure, discussed by linguists everywhere, and if it is one we will later be appropriative for marketing purposes while continuing to profit from economic violence on Black people. I don't like how AAVE sounds right now and I don't want to hear it, even though I encroached your personal space and interrupted your conversation in a language that you were not speaking to me in."
  • Me: "*speaks Standard American English*"
  • Racist: "What, so you think you're smarter than me, why are you trying to be White? Gonna take my job? Well, you misspelled a word on Twitter, so I am still smarter. Why did you use some big words? They're stupid. I am going to ignore the context and topic of your conversation and mask my insecurity--over never realizing that the lies I was fed about my automatic intellectual superiority are in fact lies--by making jokes about word length versus leaving you alone/not invading your space or actually addressing the topic the words were about."
  • Me: *uses terms attributable to womanist/Black feminist scholarship, critical race theory or other anti-oppression theories/praxes*
  • Racist: "I haven't approved use of these words, so I will call them stupid. It...well...doesn't matter to me that a key facet of White supremacy--with a very long history and reality no less--is degrading the intelligence of a Black woman, or committing epistemic violence, by purposely altering/attacking the language used to describe oppression in order to engage in an ahistorical analysis that supports oppression. I don't like that you can describe my violence with acute accuracy, so I will use violence to critique that perspective. You're a pseudo-intellectual if I don't understand what you are saying, don't want my privilege or violence critiqued with an accuracy that Black thinkers have had for centuries nor want to acknowledge that I am purposely kept ignorant of Black radical scholarship because of White supremacy."

lordbape:

white people do not have a visceral reaction to BET of hurt and exclusion and degradation of their race. they don’t want this idea of an “all white channel” (that already exists en masse) because they feel underrepresented as a race or misrepresented as a race, which is why BET…

  • Me: "*says literally anything about Black womanhood to another Black woman on Twitter*"
  • White man: "Well, rationally speaking, with no lived experience, knowledge or emotional investment, while denying your humanity or intelligence, I would just like to say, BLAH."
  • Black man: "Well, the real issue is you aren't worshipping Black men enough. Unity. Blah. Me. Blah."
  • White woman: "ALLLLLL WOMEN. ALL. ME NOT YOU. ME ME ME."
  • Non-Black PoC: "Oh yes, this specifically Black issue that has literally nothing to do with me is about ALL PoC. So let's discuss ME instead. Let's discuss absolutely any WoC except the Black women this is about."

it makes me really uncomfortable when white men call each other “brother”

It makes me uncomfortable when you think that calling someone brother is racially exclusive

last thing i want is a bunch of white dudes in a brotherhood. we’ve seen what happens when y’all get together and i’m not having it.

OSU fans not only make fun of the Trail of Tears, but hey, what about Wounded Knee? #NotYourMascotOne of the Top Comments, Why do I read these again…”Not a fan of OSU but I pretty sure that they are not referring to the actual trail of tears. They are referring to FSU crying all the way back to Florida. People need to stop being so emotional and jump on every single thing they see.”This weekend has marked a peak in my tolerance of this mockery. I have a feeling this football season will bring title waves to this debate. Again, continue to write your mascots and logos out of history American Sports!

Love this!!! @nubianskin does lingerie in NUDE shades for all skin tones!!

white privilege is as simple as having a bra to match your skin tone..

"Nude" lingerie that matches the nude of Black women 😱. I’m glad more companies are making nudes for various tones

foulmilk:

we, as women, need to stop pretending we can change men. we have this mentality that we can transform a fuckboy into a gentlemen, and that’s just not how it works. once a fuckboy, always a fuckboy. don’t waste your time on a man who won’t waste his time on you

QuestionWhy are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her. Answer

tstarksbitch:

  • i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
  • i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
  • i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
  • i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
  • i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
  • i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
  • i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics 
  • i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled 

listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
